From Israel Brewster:
E-PunchClock Std is a simple TimeClock Program designed using a "punch clock" paradigm rather than a "task timer" paradigm. Simply push a button to clock in at the beginning of the day, and push it again to clock out at the end - no need to keep the program running or make a new "task". For network deployments, you may wish to look at EZPunch Client/Server.
Simple, one-button interface for general use.
Note entry per punch.
12/24 hour time format option
MySQL and PostgreSQL datastore support.
Punch manager to edit, delete, and add punches.
Password protection option for punch manager, user manager,reporting and exporting
Report generator: Generate a basic punch listing report (one line per punch) or in/out report (one line per in/out pair with hours "in" and total hours).
Time rounding-option to round recorded time to nearest quarter-hour, as is typical for many businesses.
Dashboard widget for even easier punch entry.
Menu widget to punch in/out from the menu bar
Punch export to excel, word, etc via tab-delimited or CSV files.
Export to PDF and iCalendar format
Script/program execution on punch
Optional user login with password
Accumulated hours display
What's new in this version:
New: Readfile system. Display messages for one or all uses on login or clock in/out
New: Option to hide dock icon when menu widget is shown
Improved: Added more options to menu widget
New: Sandboxed on Mac OS 10.7+
New: view times on report as either decimal hours (current) or Hours and Minutes
Change: Integrate menu widget with main program (so sandboxing works)
I'm sorry to hear that. I try to make the upgrade process seamless, but on occasion things do go wrong. Actually, there is a good chance that your data is still intact and could be recovered - I didn't make any major changes from 4.1 to 4.1.2, aside from updating the password storage system. Perhaps this didn't work out for you? If you wanted to e-mail me with the details of what happened (my e-mail can be found in the about box), I would be glad to try to help you with this problem. Let me know.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. Whatever the time is, this app says 15:45, and it does not change at al.
The report shows the same "frozen time". Spooky, like Alice in Wonderland.
From what I can tell based on your review, you are getting confused by the time rounding option. As the time displayed is based on the time reported by your computer, the only reason it wouldn't change is if you have time rounding turned on, in which case it will display the same time for fifteen minutes.

The most likely cause of this is that you had time rounding turned on, and used the program for less than fifteen minutes. The other possibility, of course, is that your computer clock is stuck :-) Of course, if you have discovered some rare bug, I would very much like to know about it so I could fix it- giving the program a one star review and saying it doesn't work without even attempting to contact me so I can fix the problem (if in fact there is one) helps no one.
This program is exactly what I was looking for and was too lazy to write for myself. I needed something to record my in and out times from work and to calculate my hours for me. This app does that perfectly!
