Wait. Whatever you’re thinking, don’t go there. It has to do with using my Mac. That means there’s a need to track the time I put into tasks devoted to a project. There. That’s better. I’ve tried half a dozen different Mac time tracking apps. If you track time, here’s one that gets into the professional level very quickly.
This one is called Eon. It’s not free. It’s easy to setup and use; elegant actually. Set a timer to a task, project, or client. Click to start the timer. Click to stop the timer.
Nothing out of the ordinary about that, right?
Here’s where Eon is different. It tracks your time on specific tasks, projects, and clients, collecting time data along the way.
Then, that data can be synchronized with a large number of online projects system, time tracking services, and billing services.
Among the few dozen are notable names including FreshBooks, activeCollab, Basecamp, Codebase, Zoho Invoice, TSheets, Harvest, and many, many others. Wherever you and your Mac go, Eon can track what you do and when, and then send your project data to the online service of your choice.
Connecting and synchronizing to each online service is an in app upgrade ($4.99), which puts Eon into the upper mid-range of time tracking apps.
