RescueTime (Android / iPhone / Mac / Windows / Web)

An automatic time-tracking app that not only tracks the time that you spend on particular URLs, apps, and programs but also lets you know how productive you have been for the whole day.

It automatically tracks your productivity based on pre-grouped categories.

The RescueTime will attempt to categorize your habits based on a set of rules. For example, it classifies Tik-Tok as “very distracting,” and Wikipedia as “very productive.” With features like goal setting and daily scheduling, it helps you manage your time. 

RescueTime becomes most useful when you train it to recognize your particular habits properly. If you’re a social media manager who spends a lot of time on Facebook, Instagram you can tell RescueTime to log Facebook, Instagram usage during work hours as a business activity.

RescueTime is designed for individual and team use, with a free plan that gives you feature like automatically tracking and website usage, setting goals, and receiving a weekly email report. You can upgrade to the pro version for richer reports, alerts, distraction blocking, and unlimited historical data.

Because it’s mostly automatic, it’s my personal favorite among other time trackers in the list.

Clockify Time Tracker (Android / iPhone / Web / Mac / Windows / Chrome / Firefox)

Clockify – Free Time Tracker App

Clockify comes to this list for 2 reasons. One is its simplicity and the other is that it’s totally free. You can use as many features you want for as many users you have in your team.

You can simply create a project and start tracking time on it. You can also add your clients so that you can track time-based on the client. So at the end of the week or month, you can find out exactly how much time you spent on which client and on which project and on which task. All that can be filtered based on your team members as well.

You can also track time when you are offline, and that would be automatically synced to all of your devices when you are back online.

The main disadvantage of Clockify is that it wouldn’t do anything automatically. e.g. It doesn’t track the programs you use and classify your time. It just creates a timesheet for the task which you select. If you want to manually do it, then Clockify is perfect for you.

There are tons of other apps to help you track your time, but either they dont solve the purpose or they are too costly. If you feel, I have missed any great option, then please let me know in the comments section.
