  • Has never calculated the correct time

    By lambchoupe
    I had suspected for some time that something was off. The time that I had tracked versus the time my employer had, were embarrassingly different. No matter how careful I was with my settings, we could never reconcile correctly at pay time. I started using this app I conjunction with a different one (which I won’t name, this isn’t that sort of review) and at pay time this time we reconciled for the first time, without my having to make any special adjustments. It was the app all along.
  • Non existent customer support.

    By Dead Sea Squarell
    Great app and a cloud option. When it worked that is. Automatic and manual back up failure left the only option to export data as a spreadsheet. Subscription paid. Made three attempts to contact support and no one got back. Get your star, Cribasoft!
  • Shift differential option

    By just accept my review
    Love the app! Can you add an option for shift differential pay that you can set for specific hours? I.e. nurses are typically paid $X/hr over their base hourly rate for certain hours of the evening/night, weekends, and holidays. Thanks!
  • Wish there was a desktop/windows app

    By laura9275383
    I love this app but wish there was a desktop/windows version.
  • 2 years already

    By Mgtmustang
    I been using this app for 2 years and works great for me i highly recommend this and you can use it on your iwatch what is very convenient to have your work hours tracker right on your wrist.
  • I love this app but

    By Abdielec
    Lately I’ve been opening my app to see that it hasn’t automatically started my time and it starts only when I open it despite location always on, WiFi on, and a good cellular connection. Like I said it’s only recently done this and I heavily rely on this app as I work in various places around the state. Thank you!
  • It’s Cool until all the little details add up

    By conkerpr
    Exporting hours through email don’t work. When you try to send hours the last person you sent it to stays in there along with the subject. Cloud support it’s not free. They should have that be supported by iCloud instead of their own cloud.
  • NOT FREE AFTER 21 days

    By Krebero
    They said is a free app, and then after 30min using, a window pops up saying is free only for 21 days.
  • Not Free

    By Squidwillis1990
    It lets you track your hours long enough to get used to seeing how much you make on a day then it wants you to pay. It’s trash. If I’m tracking my house that obviously means I care about my money so I’m not going to pay for an app that already has ads to do simple math for me. If this app was truly free it would be great. But it’s not so. 1 star is all I can offer.
  • Forced to upgrade

    By savs84
    I enjoy the convenience however to only allow 21 entries has caused me to track my time through another avenue.
  • Working from home

    By Mustang Flasher
    This app has been so helpful working from home. I only go into the office once a week so I needed a way to keep track of my time working from home. I needed an app where I can clock in and clock out at different intervals throughout the day, as I am an hourly paid employee that does not have set hours while working at home. Fantastic app!
  • This App is not FREE

    By bhbutler
    It only works free for 21 days. After that, if you want to continue using it, there’s a fee.
  • Cost money

    By unhaply user
    So this app is free to use for about a month and then it ask you to pay to add any new times in. So basically you get a free trial. Wish I had known so I didn’t waste my time using it.
  • Excessive and Not Intuitive

    By Ecjr623
    Most people only want a simple start and end time resulting in total hours worked for that segment of time. If a before lunch and after lunch time interval for a typical work day is needed then an addition function for those intervals can be added. Quick and simple total work hours.
  • Easy!!

    By ws-va
    If there’s something this app should do but doesn’t, I haven’t thought of it yet. Very intuitive—flat learning curve. I have used this app for the past 6 years. I use it at a pretty basic level, and it more than meets my needs. Great resource!
  • Loved until

    By Lilrockermom
    I love this app been using it every day since mid 2016 I have paid for the pro version. For some reason with the latest update I am getting ads and it’s driving me batty.
  • Export bug ?

    By Gunman7891
    I am exporting my time punches from work & am not receiving the emails .. however , when I use the right tip icon to transport to email , I THEN receive it. Can you please fix this? I really enjoy using this app
  • Very good- missing holiday pay

    By Melimited
    Awesome app, please add holiday pay
  • Please, oh please

    By authordrsilva
    Update: One thing I do wish was possible is to edit tax rate on existing jobs. I have 2 pay periods worth of jobs and realized I miscalculated the tax rate (put 6% when it’s actually around 21%). But it seems the only way to fix this is to make new jobs for each of those days with the updated percentage. There’s an edit function, but it doesn’t include the tax percentage. Keep this updated! One of the most helpful apps I’ve ever had! 😃. Takes a little bit of set up to get tax rates, overtime and double time programmed, but after that it’s as easy as punching in your clock-in/clock-out, adding your breaks and other details if they are relevant, and then it gives you a pretty accurate approximation of your net income. Really nice to be able to see what I can expect on my next check without having to do all the math myself. Free version gives you 3 “jobs” (or if you’re an hourly employee, these would work like hours per day. The paid version, which is $10, gives you unlimited jobs/days, and it keeps them categorized by days, weeks, months, so you can get an overview of how many hours and how much you’ve made total in those categories. I’m finding it well worth the price.
  • Best time keeping app

    By Disgusted0416
    This app lets you set map view locations of your job. It shows you your wages and percentage deductions. Easily put in breaks and past time period dates. The end and start of pay periods. And future time clock entries. Also has a clock punch button and clock out which you can adjust if you mess up. It’s clean organized and actually kinda fun to use. Kudos to the creators you did an amazing job with this free app thank you!
  • Have to pay after so long

    By shaybeckworth
    I really like enjoy the app but after a month of putting things into the system I can add anymore until I pay to upgrade
  • Worth every tenth of a penny

    By Xanthoman
    This app paid for itself the first day. Even charging just $20/hour, with as many jobs as I work on those little ten minute pieces add up. I am very hesitant about overcharging for my time; as that’s dishonest. But one of my clients told me it’s also dishonest for me to undercharge by not having a strict accounting of the hours, so I got this application and it’s awesome. I can keep track of all my jobs (easily over twenty) and keep it down to an accuracy that allows me to be honest with myself and my clients. It’s has only made me money and allows me to put notations on my various type of jobs so I can later do analytics on my proficiency to better enhance my job bidding for future projects. Anyone who does consulting on an hour basis, or consulting on a per job basis will greatly benefit from this app. Also, it’s incredibly intuitive and robust. Love it.
  • Awesome app

    By L.T Spoon
    Love this app. Great when you work a lot of OT at random times. Gives a great idea what your take home will be.
  • Cool, Except for MAJOR ad bug

    By TwitchyMcKid
    DO NOT USE THIS APP UNTIL AD PROBLEM IS FIXED!!!This app is decent, and has the basic features you want UNTIL you find the MAJOR flaw in which video ads continue to play in the background, at full volume, at random, even after you have exited out of them. This is embarrassing in work meetings, group functions and any business event. Not only does this feel deceptive and crooked in terms of advertising revenue, it absolutely interferes with my desire to continue using the app. Until they fix this problem, I would recommend using another app.
  • Amazing app! One suggestion, though..

    By oddhumanbean
    I love this app, and it has helped me tremendously in keeping track of my hours at work! Having the app on the watch makes it just that much more convenient! The only thing I would suggest is adding support for the “Siri” watch face, and allowing it to show a card for HoursTracker. For example, once clocked in, show a card with the current tracked hours/pay up until that point. I think that would be the icing on the cake, but that just might be my geeky self! 😆 Thanks for such an awesome app and I really hope you guys read this and take my suggestion into consideration! ✌️
  • Awesome App!

    By oMOoJOo
    This app is easy to use and records accurately! I love how there is a note section to add specifics for each day.
  • Not free app

    By 80Natalie80
    Didn’t let me know that after 21 days I will have to pay for it. Don’t like that approach when you advertise app as free and than force people to buy it. Also, if this app is not free why I have to deal with advertisement at all? Disappointed
  • Effectively useless unless you pay.

    By Justin5665
    Used to be a great free app, I wouldn’t mind a small payment but it’s $10. Better off finding a similar app for less than half the cost
  • Great App BUT...

    By JaggySly
    Love this app, but please add a “shift overtime” feature. I know you have a daily and weekly overtime feature but they don’t work for me since i work nightshift. So technically i’m working twice in a day but overtime only counts after a certain amount of hours on each SHIFT. Not day. Thank you!
  • U have to in-app purchased to use

    U have to in-app purchased to use
  • Liars

    By Kalisaurusrex
    Don’t be fooled when you find this app. It’s only free for 21 entries.
  • Why everyday overtime is not calculated?

    By Payeya
    I like this app but everyday overtime is not calculated. I don’t get it why?
  • Love this

    By Pachy10
    I’ve been using this a year to calculate time for my payroll. Nice and simple. Works well never had issue.

    By Mojo photo 23
    I don’t like the new update.... took away the option of going by the single minutes. Now it goes based on ever 5 minutes.... Please help... Bring back the regular minutes on your time cards This was such a great app until my phone updated it...
  • Should be five ⭐️ but.....

    By Grateful3323
    This is far and away the best hours tracking app out there. So many options to suit any work situation you might fall into. The Apple Watch app and complication is amazing as well. But where is the update since iOS 12 and watchOS 5 have been released? The watch complication is NOT compatible with the new Apple Watch series 4 infograph and infograph modular faces. I have to switch watch faces to use the complication if I am on these new infograph faces. Kind of defeats the convenience of having the watch complication. Please update and fix this.
  • I loved it, but....

    By Homer7416
    I loved it on my series 3, but now I have my series 4 and the complication isn’t compatible to be used on the unique infograph watchface, that needs fixing ASAP!
  • No Updates in 4mos

    I always get worried when an app that I use daily, stops being updated. Any chance that this app will be updated to support WatchOS 5 complications, on the Series 4 Apple Watch? If so, I’d gladly add two more stars. I’m hoping this one doesn’t end up in the “disposable software” category that I’ve experienced with the App Store.
  • Great App + Suggestion

    By Awesome! & Amazing
    This app is amazing! I’ve tried many apps to keep track of my work hours and there’s none out there that are both this simple and versatile! I love the feature for breaks & rounding, and the exports.I work 3 jobs so the clock in/out buttons are so helpful! My suggestion is to add a No Pay Period option or Pay As You Go option. I’m a freelance photographer & academic tutor. Some of my clients like to pay me right after each session or sometimes spread out the cost throughout small payments or lump a few sessions together ect. With my other jobs this isn’t an issue since I recibe a paycheck on a pay period schedule. But freelancing I have to make an ongoing invoice and it’d be nice to be able to use this app’s data and be able to open it up and see indiviso payments that have been made ect. Maybe what I’m searching for is an invoicing option or something of the sort. I hope you take my suggestion into consideration. I wouldn’t mind paying extra for a pro feature like invoicing and maybe a desktop version of the app as well.
  • Easy as can be

    By Lisamonat
    Amazing my boss loves me at month end billing! Easy to use and love the GPS locator makes visiting clients easy once locations are set. Update 7/2/2017. Still love this .. reporting formats make it so easy for client billing and I have set up codes for personal activities to track .. still love it! **update 11/23/2018. Still love this app however would love to be able to turn on/off weekends etc to minimize unnecessary entries....
  • Good but

    By DRSearllie
    Needs to be more detailed in certain things. Anything extra worked after 8 hours is overtime even if you clock out for a few hours and then clock back in before having ten hours off. In order for it to not be overtime, I have to have ten hours off.
  • Exceptional app!

    By Christofer Williams
    I’m a self-employed freelancer, which makes it vital that I have a simple and reliable way to track time spent on tasks for each client. I’ve been using HoursTracker for two years now, and it has been absolutely invaluable. It’s rare that I’m unable to think of a feature I’d like to see added to an app, but HoursTracker has everything I could ask for and a few extra features that might be great for some people but I just don’t personally use (like the GPS-based clock in feature, which worked quite well when I played around with it). Worth every penny.
  • My go-to time tracker

    By ChristopherMN12
    I mange many clients at the same time, and this app really allows me to focus on my work and not time tracking. As I move from client to client in a single day I am confident that my time management is accurate and complete. The export options and cloud service (I highly recommend this optional feature) make generating reports and accessing my time easy on whatever device I am using.
  • Deleted the App

    By Slicksterama
    Don’t waste your time if you need to track more than 3 weeks worth of hours. Look for another app. I thought the ads were annoying, but the app was free so I kept using it. Then it stopped me from entering any more time at 21 day. I had to pay $5-10 to keep using it. I exported my time sheets, deleted all the data and would use the app in 21 day increments. This got tiresome. Sigh. I deleted the app. Once it forced me to pay, I lost interest. There are plenty of ways to track my time for free and without ads. Don’t waste your time unless you’re willing to get taken.
  • Must have app especially for Security Guards!

    By ThePoor20s
    This app is great! Just input your rate, pay period etc. and it will do the math for you.
  • It’s a 21 day trial

    By srcombstaylor1230
    I really like this app and the way it functions but I did not like how it was a 21 day trial and it popped up as search right in the middle of when I needed to record time that was very inconvenient. I was looking for a free time tracker and this one was working for me except for that
  • Great app!

    By Lion Rebellion
    I just use this to keep track of my hours and it’s great that I can add in my breaks. Even shows pay periods which is awesome. I can add other jobs if need be. I’m planning on getting a couple of other part times so this is perfect especially when your paycheck seems off. Great way to keep track of hours.
  • Not enough features

    By Catarina630
    The app is good for what it does, but I really wish it had a few more features. It needs a better way to store data. After data is exported, it should be archived so that it is still visible but not part of the new total hours summary. Looking backwards, it’s impossible for me to tell what I have billed and what is still due. Also, I would like to enable automatic billing periods (monthly). Even just reminders would be helpful.
  • Quick Books

    By One stop mobile mechanic
    If this application integrated with QuickBooks desktop it would be a 10 star app keeping it simplicity but ability to export to QuickBooks desktop HoursTracker would be the front runner of everything I’ve looked at so far continuing my search looking for a time tracker for jobs that is easiest this but integrate into QuickBooks for customer jobs
  • This app is rock star!

    By Theecleticgypsy
    My question (after looking through the app first) is when I change my hourly wage, will it only reflect the change in the previous & future hours until the next raise?
