@kgdavis @charlieirish Meta Lab built and runs Flow. The consulting side of their business designed Slack originally. They're awesome.

I use Ballpark every day. It's super-handy and one of the easiest things I do to manage my business and look good doing it.

Although it seems like a good product they are in the process of selling it, so it's long term availability could be uncertain: http://bit.ly/1qdJRpK Full disclosure: I started dashable.com which is in the same space.

A product like Ballpark is only attractive to buyers who want to acquire the team, not *just* the IP. It's a beautiful app built by a great team - my advice would be to hire a small team and go for an acquhire.

@michaeldick Actually, what happened was a simple asset sale. My company, Simple Focus (http://simplefocus.com/) bought the assets for Ballpark from MetaLab and took it over with our own staff. We've been busy at work making it better, too: http://www.getballpark.com/blog/.... You should check out the original post about the sale, too: www.getballpark.com/blog/steppin...

I used Ballpark back when I was doing freelance work. My major gripe was time tracking — the time reporting interface and how it integrates into an invoice left a lot to be desired (at least for my use case).
