I was over the moon to find out that something like Timely existed. I had long been frustrated with how often I forgot to start or stop the timer in Toggl, especially when I had to jump between tasks. If you need a time tracker that tracks the time you spend on every project for you, you have to get Timely.

“Unlike a lot of app subscriptions, Timely actually really supports my money making ventures. It makes it easy to track hours and validate whether you're doing enough or too little work, overcharging or undercharging. It's really helping me track my progress and validates productivity so well! Rewarding and enjoyable to use.”
— Connor, photographer and designer
“Timely is a godsend for scatter-brained freelancers. I was really amazed at how much time I was spending on things that I never billed for. I knew I needed this in my life.”
— Kristen, graphic designer
“Timely is the best way to measure exactly where your time goes. It lets me measure which projects are most and least profitable—and accurately track all the mini-tasks that constantly take up so much time. Timers can’t compare—there is no other way to accurately measure what you spend time on.”
— Brian, accountant
Timely has helped me capture more billable hours and given me a clearer sense of the value of my time. Amazing, simple tool that captures everything you work on and stops letting those 5-10 minute jobs fall through the cracks.
— Jenn, digital designer
“I was looking for the best way to approach remote work to make clients that never see me in person comfortable. I wanted a tool that could both tell me how I'm spending my time as well as create editable task logs for my clients. Being able to produce detailed receipts for clients from the workflow I have was crucial, and Timely’s ease of use and functionality made it the perfect fit.”
— Donald, software engineer
Timely captures time you didn’t know you were losing! The iOS app lets me automatically track where I’ve been (via GPS) on my iPad. I can sit down at the end of the day and make easy time entries for time I would have otherwise forgotten about—all without trying to keep notes during the day. I was letting a lot of chargeable time slip by, because an email here and there didn’t feel too important. When you see all that time added up after a few days or weeks on Timely, it’s frightening to see how much money was slipping through the system. Not any more!
— Scott, Barrister
“After two weeks, I had a much clearer picture of my day than I was getting trying to remember to start and stop Toggl. I was catching all of the smaller items that fall through the cracks without having to put in any real effort.”
— Emma, web designer
“The moment I logged my first time entry using automatically captured data I realized the greatness of this tool. Timely takes a load off my brain trying to remember details of my days and gives me much better insight into how I spend my work days. It’s really upgraded my time reporting process to the next level in terms of speed, joy, and value.”
—Erik, digital designer
