TimeTracker OSX b10

TimeTracker OSX b10 timetracker start statusbar

A new version of TimeTracker has been released. This now features the ability to start last recently used tasks from the statusbar (a feature that has been wanted quite badly). I haven’t done a lot of testing yet so your mileage may vary.

  1. I wrote this on the official feedback page, but I’ll write it here too in case you didn’t see it:

    I have tried your beta and prefer it to the official release.
    However, I would suggest that instead you keep the simple click-on/click-off to start a new task, and have CTRL+click to select the Project, show/hide the main window, exit the program, etc. (And include an option in the preferences to hide the dock icon).
    What do you think?

  2. Funny, I updated quicktime and frontrow with system update and updated iTunes to v8…and now Time Tracker refuses to launch. It bounces a few times in the dock and then disappears!

  3. Here is the console output:

  4. @Gadz, regarding your other comments. I am not sure I fully follow you what you mean with the CTRL-Click trick. Personally I use the drop down in the status bar more than I had hoped for. Mainly because I keep switching between tasks in one or multiple projects. However, if you are always working on the same stuff then I could see why you theoretically want to just keep the single klick.

    However, its now a click and tiny drag which IMHO is not so much more complicated.

  5. I think the best way to explain it is to refer you to Caffeine, a freeware app that has the kind of functionalityI am looking for regarding the menubar behavior.

    Here is the website for caffeine: http://www.lightheadsw.com/caffeine/

    „Caffeine is a tiny program that puts an icon in the right side of your menu bar. Click it to prevent your Mac from automatically going to sleep, dimming the screen or starting screen savers. Click it again to go back. Hold down the Command key while clicking to show the menu.“

  6. Oh and after further use of time tracker b11, I realized that the dropdown only lists the five most recently timed project/tasks…and you’re right, it works well.

  7. However, it doesn’t take much more effort to press Ctrl or Command (ala Caffeine) to bring the dropdown menu.

    I will try to make a mockup in photoshop to show you what I am tryng to say…

  8. Hey gadz, thats a nice mockup. Lets see if I can figure out to make the menu only show up when you hit the option or cmd key. However, I am a bit busy at the moment, so it might take a little while.
