"My favorite time tracking app - helps me see where my work days are going! "

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to use, especially with projects and hashtags. I love seeing all my time color coded, it keeps me motivated to work harder to see my pie charts get bigger.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that there isn't a way to mark time for items that are not work projects. I'd have to get a separate account to be able to track those items. I'd prefer if it was done similar to unbillable hours, maybe marking a tilde (~) or something similar in order to designate projects (like chores, reading, cooking, exercise, etc.) that I want to keep track of, within the same account but with separate stats.

Since they're mostly reaching out to businesses, I understand why they wouldn't want to invest on something for separating your personal hours versus work hours, but I think a lot of people would love to see how they're spending (or wasting!) their time using this same format, without the added price of an another account, but more so, without the added work of logging in and out to switch between work and home time tracking. There is a huge market of people who want to track their time at home so they can be more productive, and the market is just waiting for something as beautiful and easy as Freckle.

Recommendations to others considering the product

USE FRECKLE! If I had the money, I'd get my husband and best friends on Freckle so we can all see where our time is going. When I get some more money, I'll definitely be buying my husband an account so he can track how much time he's spending drawing, which will help him figure out the rates he wants to charge as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mainly, knowing how much I work on various projects. I've been able to charge a by-hour rate instead of a by-project rate, which has increased my revenue.

"Makes entry easy"

What do you like best?

The thing that makes or breaks time tracking software (IMO) is whether people use it in real time (or at least same day) or put off using it until they have to. Freckle makes entry so easy to enter time as you're doing work or at the end of the day that it's not something you dread. Super helpful. The reporting is nice too.

What do you dislike?

Not much, TBH. Tracking time sucks, but there's nothing about Freckle I dislike.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Faster, better time entry with good reporting

What Time Tracking solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

What do you like best?

Freckle is a fun and innovative application! One of the key design principles that shines throughout the product is a commitment to lack of friction. Need to add a project? Simply start typing and the software will generate it for you. Freckle has lots of nice touches that automatr tasks for you. It also has super in depth reporting.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much to dislike about Freckle. The UI/UX is well thought out, and the Freckle development team is very responsive to suggestions and comments.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out! The invoicing isn't quite as strong as other offerings.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Freckle has replaced other time trackers and project management software for my computer business. It has reduced the cost of time mamagment for my team by providing a slick integrated experiencd.

"Easy way to track time. "

What do you like best?

Very easy to start/stop/delete time. Lives in the background so it is not like an annoying timer.

What do you dislike?

You need to build a habit for using it or else you will forget. It does remind you when you have let a time run for too long which I like.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making sure I spread my time across a variety of projects and then looking at my previous week to see if I liked the time spent.

"Great for Timetracking on the go."

What do you like best?

I love that you can use the system offline. Usually when I travel, I like to work on the go, and it's so hard because I can rarely find a stable internet connection. I used to use freshbooks for this, but I would have to be connected to time track. This is easily accessible on my computer and I never lose any tracked time because of internet crashes!

What do you dislike?

Well for the price that you pay, there should be other features. I would love a project sync from asana, and also I would love if they imported expenses from my bank accounts (like Freshbooks does).

Recommendations to others considering the product

You have to try it out and see if you vibe with the system. Its been great so far, but it does lack some features that others have.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Just the ability to time track on the road, where I don't have to think twice. I also like the reports as they give a good overview of the business progression over time.

"Finally an effortless time tracking tool"

What do you like best?

The data entry is really simple. In other tools I usually fight with dropdowns and calendar. In freckle, I just write text.

What do you dislike?

I would be nice to have small handy extension for the data entry. The existing extension is rather the whole app, and there's only some unofficial one in the store. Also, could be a bit cheaper considering how simple the task is.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want the easiest time tracking solution, this is a way to go. I'm missing the official extension and ability to ented data through Slack though.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for time tracking on an internal project. The benefit is that this tools does not stand in your way. With some "enterprise" timesheet apps, I actually wanted to fill into timesheets the time spent filling the timesheets, which would probably create an infinite recursion and the universe would explode.

"Simple, streamlined time tracking for small-to-medium teams."

What do you like best?

The basic task — enter time, assigning it to project, and moving on — is super-streamlined. It's web-based, the interface is about as easy as it gets, and it offers just enough functionality to give our 60+ person development shop what we need.

What do you dislike?

The automated time tracking functionality feels fussier than it should be — often it's easier just to keep track on my own and enter it at the end of the day (or week). For those of us with multiple clients and interrupt-heavy schedules, its timer functionality is a polite fiction: setting it, then stopping it, and auto-generating a timesheet entry, is a recipe for mixing multiple clients' time together.

Also, the reporting features are geared towards regular managerial roll-ups, rather than individuals keeping track of their own time over the long haul. That could be good or bad, depending on your perspective.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We need to keep track of reasonably accurate numbers for our hourly clients' invoices, watch the total number of hours on large fixed-bid projects to ensure we aren't burning through profit, and monitor our internal projects to ensure the work they require is in sync with the benefit they provide. Freckle helps with all of those things.

What do you like best?

Easy categories and usage, keeps track of time spent easily. Usage of hashtags makes keeping track easy and the overall interface is very clean and simple.

What do you dislike?

App on the phone doesn't work so well and the monthly fee is too expensive for what it does. All the projects and hashtags can get cluttered

Recommendations to others considering the product

The price is steep, but it's really easy to use and keeps easy track of your time worked.

how much time I spend doing various things and how I spend my time on each project.

"Kids Like It"

What do you like best?

I like that practice is adaptive and students progress at their own pace. I also like that my students willingly use Freckle.

What do you dislike?

I think that kids are allowed to earn too much game time. I worry that it supersedes learning.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Students like this more than Moby Max and IXL.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Student engagement is the primary benefit; they practice skills without being nagged.

What do you like best?

its very quick and easy to log time. We dont have to retrain users on how to track things

What do you dislike?

It's not very easy to organize the time being tracked. We may not be the correct audience, but its hard to separate by multiple variables.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to track time spent on creation of content for clients. I am uncertain of any real benefits other than insight.
