Got the Windows Edition?  Click Get Started to download it!


The Android app is free and intended to be used with the Desktop Windows Edition.  In other words, you collect your hours in the field with the Android app and then send them to the Windows app using email or other synchronization mechanisms.  Ultimately, the time logs are stored on your desktop database so you can bill clients, pay employees, or track projects.  You can use the app stand-alone, but the most benefit comes from the reporting and client tracking you get with the Windows Edition.
