Have you heard of Screen Time, Apple’s time tracking feature for iPhone and iPad that shows how long you use each app on your iPhone or iPad? Good news — Screen Time is coming to macOS Catalina this fall! And if you haven’t heard of this feature yet, you may want to check out the Timing guide to Screen Time.
However, Screen Time’s feature set is fairly limited: it only lets you view the past 30 days of activity, and you only get a rough overview of what apps you used. That’s not sufficient for time tracking in a professional environment.
Enter Timing. Like Screen Time, Timing automatically tracks how much time you spend on each app and website. In addition, Timing also tracks every document you work on and lets you categorize your time into custom projects. This gives you a much more detailed overview of where your time went.
You can also add manual time entries for occasions like phone calls and breaks — another feature not present in Screen Time. The built-in calendar integration even lets you create time records for calendar events in just one click. And when it’s time to export a detailed report, Timing has you covered, too.
So, if you’d like to take advantage of all these benefits right now, check out Timing’s blog article on getting Screen Time’s functionality on your Mac with Timing. Then, download the 14-day free trial and save 10% when you buy!
