3 Android Time Tracking Apps

14

I think anyone who reads my posts knows that I tend to cater to consultants and freelancers.  The reason for this is that I created this site because, as a consultant, I had trouble finding apps that helped me with my business.  One topic that I was always looking into was Android Time Tracking apps.  For the consultant, tracking your time is an essential task if you wish to get paid.    You can’t really just guess how many hours to bill a client.  It isn’t fair to you and it certainly isn’t fair to the client.

So today I’m looking at 3 Android Time Tracking apps that can help you ensure you get paid for all of your hard work.  I have tried to include apps that you may not have heard of and are worthy of a look.

Android Time Card 

Android Time Tracker is a nice Android Time Tracking app for those who just want to track their time and don’t need a lot of bells and whistles.   You enter a job name and description then start the timer.  You can also manually enter the time.  When done you can email your timesheet to yourself or your supervisor.

Features:

  • Install to SD
  • Multiple Timers!
  • Languages
  • Import names/descriptions
  • Widget
  • Mileage
  • Earnings
  • Notes

Get Android Time Tracker on the Google Play Store

My Work Clock

 

Here is another very basic Android Time Tracking app.  My Work Clock is a simple punch in punch out app that lets you track when you worked.  This is better suited for an employee who needs to track their time for a time sheet as opposed to a consultant who is worried about billable time.  But don’t let the simplicity fool you…it’s a solid app that has some nice features.

Features:

  • Overtime Support
  • Multiple Jobs Support
  • Calendar Update (One Way Sync)
  • Clock in/Clock out directly from widget
  • Quick day, week, month information
  • Simple Reports
  • Send via email as CSV
  • Add/Remove/Edit Records
  • Multiple Reports

 TimeClock – Time Tracker

 

Here we have an Android Time Tracking app that is geared specifically for consultants, freelancers, attorneys, or anyone else who needs to track billable time and expenses.    TimeClock lets you organize your entries by client and project.  You can track your expenses and billable hours.  The nice thing about this app is that you can then export your data as spreadsheets and even generate invoices.  Check out the partial feature list below.

  •  Export directly to Dropbox or Google Drive (Google Docs) – or send your export file via email.
  • Export your data as a spreadsheet (CSV) or as “human readable” HTML.

  3. Nice apps, I have to manage my time a lot as a freelancer so these would be very useful to me on my Galaxy tablet!

  5. Sounds Interesting! There are a number of different ways to track our work time, but for the majority of people like to use free time tracking software. But I like to use cloud-based application because it is perfect for managing our workday, seeing how long our projects take and tracking how we spend our time.

    Personally, I use Replicon ( http://www.replicon.com/olp/online-time-recording-software.aspx )software for time management. It has been very helpful for me to quickly prepare invoices in a very professional manner because I just have to pull up the project hours to make invoices. It just takes a few minutes to make the invoices.

  7. I couldn’t find a decent time tracker on this list. I currently use Mobile Worker (http://www.mworker.com), which has one-click time tracking, document sync with Dropbox, invoicing, etc. Unfortunately, it’s only available on Android devices. But if you’re looking for something light and simple to use, that’s probably one of the best options.
