Do you need an easier way to track your work hours or assignments without trying to remember them off the top of your head? WorkTimes, by madeFM, is a mobile time tracking app that tracks and organizes your hours without pen and paper. Whether you work at home or at an office, this app can make time tracking easier.

The app WorkTimes is basically a time tracker that keeps tabs on the hours and projects that you’ve worked. The first step in using this app is to set up your default work hours in Settings under Work Time. Once the default is set, there are a couple of ways you can enter your details. First, you can choose the date and time you started and ended your shift. The second, and quicker, way to enter a work time is by pressing the “Now” button when you immediately begin your shift and immediately when you end your workday. The app will alert the user if there are any time conflicts or if projects overlap. All the work times that are entered are organized by week, giving you the week number and your hours for that week. If you want to delete an entry, simply swipe it and a delete option will appear.

WorkTimes also lets you categorize your work by creating and managing tags. Custom tags are created in Settings, and then work times are marked with the tags of your choice. The category Tagged Time then gives the user a synopsis of the hours worked under each tag. The Over Time function lets you track how much overtime you have accrued (based on your default settings). There is an instructional how-to in the FAQ section in Settings that gives ample instruction on how to make the app work for you.

WorkTimes is a good app for people who need to track their hours and projects, but there are some things that could be added to the app. There should be an option for paid breaks or the ability to default break times to zero (there is a minimum break time of 1 minute). Also, an e-mail or export option would be great for backing up work times to your computer. Working the app can be a little bit confusing at first, so I would recommend reading up on the instructions before you begin using it.

WorkTimes is compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch; requires OS 3.0 or later

  1. Hi,

    I’m the developer of WorkTimes and like to add some information to the review:

    First: The problem with the minimum 1-minute break is a “feature” Apple added to this type of picker I’m using. Try to set the Timer in the Clock app to zero. It’s not possible. I’m in contact with Apple regarding this topic.

    Second: An email export feature will be added in one of the next updates and also the possibility to add remarks to each work time entry.

    If you have any further feature requests, please contact me at http://madefm.com.

    Thanks,
    Florian
