A difficult thing to do when dealing with multiple freelance projects at the same time is to keep track of the amount of time you spend on each task. iCheckClock is an easy-to-use program for Mac that offers you a solution for this issue by keeping a record of the time you allocate working on your assignments.
The app lets you manage as many stopwatches as you need, from the same window. All you have to do in order to create a new entry is to enter a description for the current project task and start the counter. You can pause, resume or reset the timer whenever it's necessary.
A good thing about this tool is that you can export the information stored within the program to formats such as CSV and PDF. This way, you can share your notes with your employers or colleagues.
The only aspect I don't like about working with iCheckClock is the fact that it lacks a scrollable feature which comes in handy when storing, say, more than 10 entries.
To conclude, iCheckClock is a simple yet effective application that enables you to keep track of the time you invest working on your daily tasks and projects. The app brings an intuitive interface, lets you save the notes to CSV and PDF files for later use, and comes free of charge.
- User-friendly interface
- Lets you export the log to PDF and CSV files
- Uses a small amount of CPU resources

***** Effortlessly manage your time *****
Using Nozbe to manage your time is easy. Inspired by world-famous GTD (Getting Things Done (R)) methodology by David Allen, we've designed Nozbe in such a way that everyone can get organized quickly
- Focus on your next actions
Busy people like yourself have lots of projects. Make sure to prioritize only the next actions with a star and focus on getting them done. With time-management and filtering you'll know exactly what to do next!
- Never miss a deadline. Ever again.
View your scheduled tasks in a calendar. Never miss a deadline or appointment again. Tasks scheduled for today become your Next Actions automatically to make sure you'll get them done.
- Organize tasks in manageable Projects
Create as many projects for your tasks as you'd like. Share them with people in your team. Get things done together. Organize projects in labels like "work" or "home". Feel free to design your productivity system.
- Work smart in appropriate Contexts
Think of contexts as a place or tool - like your "computer", "phone", "home", "office" - to make sure you'll get tasks done in these places and with these tools. Organize in projects but work in contexts!
***** Communicate through tasks ******
Email wasn't designed for project collaboration. When you communicate through actionable tasks, you and your team get a lot more done and everyone is on the same page all of the time.
- Share projects with friends and team
Sharing has never been so easy. Share projects with your team, delegate tasks to them (making these tasks their Next Actions) and hold folks accountable.
- Comment on tasks - keep everyone on the same page
You can add a comment to each task. Use this as a note for a task or start a discussion with your team. This will make sure everyone understands what really needs to be done.
- Comment with pictures, documents and more...
Comments are not limited to text. You can comment with checklists, images, photos, sketches, documents, Evernote notes and so much more. This will help you get your point across clearly.
- Receive email updates of your team's activity
Don't collaborate through email but stay in touch with your team thanks to regular email updates sent to you every hour... but only if something's happening in the projects you care about.

You always need a simple tool to control how much you want to spend this month. Essentially you need a big calendar to track how much money you have spent compared to how much you wanted to spend. You also need to generate lists of overdue payments, planned payments and check what has already been paid off. Bills for Mac are made to help those needs! Make your ongoing monthly financial planning an easy and pleasant task!
The way you work with the application:
Set a figure indicating how much you want to spend this month. Mark days on the big calendar when you need to pay for anything or buy anything. Then when you actually have a transaction, approve it quickly (you may also approve it partially and reschedule the rest of the payment). Easily filter your bills and payments via the calendar and special boxes to show your planned, overdue and paid expenses & bills. If you spend too much, the green bar above the calendar will help you to understand it. Extra feature: export to CSV (Excel)!
each element reminds of real office room objects, which are so familiar to all of us and help to concentrate when taking care of the bills and expenses. Flip board shows the list of your transactions. Big projector screen shows you a calendar view of the current month. Office folders are reserved for extra features. Drawers are meant to serve as filters. And when you add or edit entries, you will see a memo book page.
- great interface design (real office room)
- easy management of expenses and bills
- quickest work with entries
- filters for paid, planned and overdue payments
- easy export to CSV (Excel)
