Talking [APP] Time Tracker -- Need testers

Hey everyone,

I've always wanted a quick time tracking app that didn't have a bunch of data pushed in my face.

I found writing down on paper was easier than these complicated apps/software. With too much to deal with, select, set, and fill out, before long I've spent a minute or more just telling it what I was about to do. So I decided to try my first attempt at an app for my Xoom -- which then extended to my phone.

I need some testers to try it out and give me some feedback. I recently added support for Android 2.2+ on top of the native support for 3.0 so it can be used on your tablets and now your phones.

All feedback appreciated!

Screenshots
As you can see I set 'Time Tracker App' as my default subject while I was working on it over the last few days; so each entry is titled for quick reference, which you can then click to view and learn more: exact times, a real-time counter, notes, ways to manage the entry, etc.

2.1.2 on my Xoom





- Yes that's 7 hours counting in real-time... no limits on big projects

2.1.2 on my Droid X

UPDATED 5/9
- Attachment updated to newest release 2.1.2
- Added screenshots of Xoom and Phone in action

hi i downloaded your time tracker on my xoom. looks pretty good but have not put in actual use. I was actually looking for an app to do my scheduling.

For example : event | SAT - SUN | breaking down on the timing and items for the event

does that make any sense to you ?

Hey thanks for trying it out and giving some feedback!

What did you have in mind?

I see an idea here for setting up specific entries with predefined start/end times and having the timer count down to the start time. But let me know what you had in mind... you tell me the steps you'd want to take and the outcome of those steps =)

ex.
Click "Make an Event" or "Event", fill out the Subject and Start/End Time, this event is set between those dates. The timer counts down to the event start time, then counts up from there for the length of the event... etc etc!

This way you could add events/tasks/jobs AHEAD of time, rather than when you're sitting there about to start! I've already got the function in the app to do future tasks/events, I just haven't made it public. So the more feedback you can give, the better I can build it out =)

Another thought is having Events act as a group, that you can add timers to the group and then refer back to the group "Weekend Party" to see how all your timers under that group broke down.

I'm rambling... you tell me!

Great concept.

Would you be so kind as to add a couple of screenshots so we know what to expect before downloading?

Thanks I appreciate it! I think it's a concept most people could really use -- at least I know I tried a handful of apps, but none of them did ANYTHING simply and actually ended up COMPLICATING things even further.

I put up some pics as requested! The Invoice function is a WIP where I plan on allowing you to add timers to build out invoices quick and easy. At the moment it's a data sheet for you to reference when you bill for the month, but with development going the way it has, that should be up and running relatively soon!

All feedback is welcomed... it's the only way these apps can get better. Something bugging you? Let me know as I can't test for everyone! =)

I am a contractor looking for a more robust time tracking app. I have tried several apps out there. I have not located a developer willing to work with me to get some real improvements to them.

There are several of them who have a great concept and template, just poorly implemented. The whole idea of having a tablet is to make my life easier, not to make me jump thru extra hoops and having to type in specific dates to sort out a weeks freaking work..

I will load it up on my xoom shortly and I am hoping it is a great concept and I am willing to spend the extra time to give you the input you desire

well, im testing this now since you offered it. one thing that got on my nerves was the registration/sign in. this would only be helpful if i can view all my tracks online as well, but i havent found where :)

the app itself works like charm and right now i didnt find anything that neees improvement. so, well done !

You're head is in the right direction -- the login is meant for keeping your Tracking per account. I'm putting together a web service where you can manage everything from your computer/laptop and not have to do anything but log in! No syncing required, it's all done for you.

So between your tablet, phone, and then computer, it could be pretty nice =) I can streamline the registration and make it a little nicer though! Any thoughts on what could make it better?

Thanks for adding the screenshots. This app looks absolutely wonderful. I am going to feature this on XDA's front page in the coming days.

PS. Your use of the Fragments API is stellar.
