TimeTracker for Android
If your work is project-oriented, you know the need to track your project times to generate closer information about the state of a project or as a starting point for new offers.
That's, what TimeTracker is for. TimeTracker is avaiable in English and German language.
- Create and edit customers, projects, and tasks.
- Create timers and start, stop, pause or cancel them.
- Export and import the whole database in form of XML to you SD card.
- Filter entries using many criteria.
- Create reports from selected entries and send them via email.
- Export filtered entries as CSV on your SD card.
How to work with the TimeTracker
Something in general: The TimeTracker uses context menus on all lists. Press your finger a little bit longer on a list entry and you will get a context menu, displaying further functions. Moreover you can switch between client, project and task in the core data using horizontal wiping to the desired direction.
First, you should create your customers. For every customer you can create projects and for every project you can create tasks. For a task you can create an entry manually or you can create a timer to track your time automatically.
So you will never lose your overall view of you projects and will be able to find quick answers to the questions like:
- How much time did I spend for this project?
- Which are the current expenses for this project?
- How high is my hourly charge for a wholesale project?
How is TimeTracker calculating?
Projects or tasks can be marked as wholesale. In this case, the given charge is the base for calculating the total amount. If neither the project nor the task is marked as wholesale, the given hourly charge and the mileage charge of the task will build the base for the total amount.
That means: if a project is marked as wholesale, all task and all entries for these tasks will be charged with the amount given in the project.
If the project is not marked as wholesale, but the task is marked as wholesale, all entries of this task will be charged with the amount given in the task.
And if neither the project nor the tasks marked as wholesale, every entry will be charged separately with the given charges in the task. However, an entry itself can also be marked as wholesale so you can mix it all up.
Over all you can use the state flag to stop charging at all or to mark elements as billed or payed.
Now let's have a look to something specific. Suppose you have a project which has a fixed amount of time and travel times are charged with the half of normal times.
Therefore you can create a task with half of the charge than the other tasks. But then you would charge your travel times with half of the normal charge. Better you keep the charge of the travel task like the other tasks and set its time-factor to 0.5. In this way you reduce your travel time to the half and increase the total amount of the project.
You create customers, projects and tasks in the core data section. After that you can create entries and timers.
If you find an error in the TimeTracker application or you have some nice ideas about new functionality I really like to know about this. Please send me an email to:
Moreover you use TimeTracker at your own risk.
I will not be liable for any financial damage that will happen to you using the TimeTracker. Neither in case of loosed entries nor wrong calculations nor any other kind of direct or indirect escaped profit or damage. If you do not agree with that you must remove TimeTracker from your device.
TimeTracker, in unlicensed version, is limited to a maximum of 25 entries. If you want to use this programm without limitations, you have to download the license (TimeTrackerLicense) from the AndroidMarket for a little charge. If you are using a pretty new device it may be, that you can not find the app in the Android Market. The same problem appears to useres living in some dedicated countries. In this case you can use the AppCenter from AndroidPit. Just load it down and install it manually. With this market-app you should be able to find the license, not matter what type of device you are using or from which country you are.
