So, being in the service industry, one has to keep track of time. In my case, when I’m programming, I have to keep track of how many hours something is taking, and be able to organize all of my tasks.
Coming from QuickBooks timer, I knew something better had to exist. I was getting ready to buckle down and build it in .NET if I had to. I searched for days to find something useful. I finally did.
ToDoList by Abstract Spoon has had everything I’ve needed so far. I can keep track of everything I’m doing in a hierarchical list (tasks and sub-tasks, or projects and tasks) and TIME everything. I can also add in comments for all items.
This keeps client invoicing accurate and simple. Plus, it’s free. Can’t fucking beat that.
I tried a few items that sort of did what I want, including a few web interfaces which I was weary of (my work is MY business), but ToDoList takes the cake.
Normally I wouldn’t sponsor something like this, but I think they did a really great job. It has a lot of features (like list sharing) I’ll hopefully never have to use, but it’s awesome.
