Top 5 free time tracking tools

Here are the best time tracking tools that are free or semi-free.

1

Toggl

Toggl

Toggl is the simplest and most popular time tracker out there. The company I work at (COING Development,a consulting/outsourcing dev shop) used Toggl for a long time until they doubled the price. We used to copy/paste ID of a Trello task into Toggl and track time like that. Then we switched to Clockify because of the price ($20/user for 50 employees is a lot of money).

Clockify

Clockify

Clockify works exactly like Toggl, only it’s 100% free, even for big teams. The timer launched recently and is picking up steam because a lot of IT companies need simple time tracker that doesn’t cost them $500 each month.

3

Harvest

Harvest

Harvest is most popular with agencies who need one tool that combines time tracking and invoicing. It has a lot of users, but not that much publicity.

4

Hubstaff

Hubstaff

I know a lot of companies that use Hubstaff because of employee monitoring features. The only trouble is, those companies work with remote freelancers and employ mostly link builders, writers, etc. I doubt a typical software developer would agree to install an app that takes screenshots of their desktop at random intervals.

RescueTime

RescueTime

If you just want to see how productive you are and don’t want to bother with starting/stoping timer or filling out timesheets, your best option is RescueTime. it tracks what desktop apps you use and what websites you visit, and gives you a report. The only downside is that it can’t tell you what were you doing when you visited Stackoverflow, for example.
