Ok, I have to admit something. Remember me telling you all how awesome
Out of Milk Remember The Milk was? Well, it is pretty cool. But I used it for all of a week before I quit it. Which lead me to a resolution: I have to play with an app for at least two weeks and decide I’m going to keep it before I can bring it up here at the blog.
I found Toggl at a freelance website that recommended online tools for tracking billable project time. I signed up for some free ones, and promptly ran through the first three, declaring them unsuitable. I was feeling a little “over it” by the time I hit Toggl’s start page. Then I saw just how easy they’ve made it. You type in what you’re doing and hit the red button to start the timer. You don’t even need to stay logged in to the website. Or if you put the app on your phone, feel free to surf, make calls, and do whatever you need. Toggl just keeps on going.
I know this because I’ve had to log in and delete a couple of things. I know I can waste time, but there’s no way even I spend 188 hours grocery shopping. 🙂
