Due to the global pandemic, thousands of employees are working from home. It’s essential to keep track of time and take frequent breaks during working hours. So how do you ensure to follow that regime? We recommend time tracking apps. These apps are also useful for every one working from home temporarily or permanently.
Time Tracking apps aren’t limited to mobile platforms. One can use them on macOS too (that’s where the productivity hours matter, isn’t it?). Both the Apple App Store and Mac Store carry dozens of Time Tracking apps.
We have hand-picked five of the best time tracking apps. In this post, we will include its features, price, cross-platform availability, third-party integration, and more. Let’s get started.
Toggl is one of the best time tracking apps for iOS and macOS. The app uses a clean and intuitive UI to navigate through menus and functions. From the home screen, tap on the play button, and you can add tasks, projects, tags, starting time, and ending time.
Here’s is how you can use it. You can create as many tasks with the play button. Toggl also lets you create folders and tags for the tasks. After that, go to the home screen, and whichever task you are starting, just press the play button, and the counting starts.

Clockify keeps things simple. From the home screen, there are two options. You can either add data manually or switch to timer mode for tracking time. I like this approach.
The user interface should not matter much in time tracking apps as you aren’t spending much time using the app. Even then, Clockify needs to pay attention to the UI as it’s quite outdated compared to rivals.
Hubstaff is the best software solution for teams and organizations. It’s a boon for an admin who can create multiple projects, add tasks, and invite team members to contribute.
There is just one problem with Hubstaff — you can’t create projects on the mobile or desktop app. You need to open the web app to create projects, and only then you can start the timer for it.
TimeCamp is a neat combination of good interface with adequate features. The home screen shows the weekly integration that displays the total time at the top.
You can create and add projects with tasks. All the tasks get displayed on the home. Tap on the play button beside the task, and it will start the counting.
The Reports tab is one of the detailed ones out there. It displays the weekly and monthly data with tasks and projects.
The list of functions is more advanced on the desktop. You can see a detailed dashboard, create goals, timeline, and categories too.

TickTick isn’t the proper time tracking app. It offers a capable Pomodoro function out of the box. The only reason this app is on this is is because of the sheer number of features it brings to the table.
By default, the function isn’t switched on. You need to go to Settings > Tab Bar and enable the Pomo option.
KEEP TRACK OF TIME
As you can see from the list above, each app is designed and aimed at a different group of users. Toggl and Clockify are perfect for personal use. Hubstaff is geared towards organization use. TimeCamp is flexible and TickTick is an all-rounder with various productivity add-ons.
