Editors' Review

+

Reliable Task Timer is an extremely basic program that allows users to track the time spent on specific tasks in a CSV spreadsheet. Although the program works, we've seen similar applications that offer many more features.

Reliable Task Timer's interface is extremely plain, consisting of a single screen with four labeled steps. Users first select a destination and file name for the CSV spreadsheet, enter a title and description for the task to be tracked, and then click Start Timer. When users have completed the task, clicking Stop Timer records the entry on the spreadsheet. Or at least we think it does; the trial version of the program prevents entries from being saved, which is a pretty big trial limitation. As far as we could tell the program functioned just fine, but we were seriously underwhelmed by its features. We've seen many similar programs that allow users to enter and save tasks which can then be selected from a drop-down menu. With Reliable Task Timer, users must enter tasks over and over again; there's no way to save them. The program's Help file is a two-page PDF that's as brief as the program is. Overall, although there was nothing functionally wrong with it, we found Reliable Task Timer unimpressive.

Reliable Task Timer is free to try, but the trial version does not allow users to save tasks to a spreadsheet. The program installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We do not recommend this program.

"No pause button"

July 29, 2015  |  By eupelia

 |  Version: Reliable Task Timer 1.8

Pros

Simple...too simple.

Cons

There's no option to round up by certain increments (useful for billing tasks where you generally round up to the next .10 of an hour or .25 of an hour).

THERE'S NO OPTION TO PAUSE THE TIMER! HOW LAME!

Summary

There's a start button and a stop button, and that's it. You need to be able to pause. It also has NO memory of your tasks, so each time you have to enter all of the task info over again.
finally, specific to the trial: you can't save a record to the spreadsheet, which is how this program works. So how do I know that the full version will work and properly record data and how will I know what the format of the spreadsheet will be?
