"Small challenge to learn, but developer responds fast!"

April 14, 2010  |  By sherivan

 |  Version: TimeSlice 4.5.3

Pros

It works well to track time. The developer is always quick to respond to user comments and incorporates suggestions into future versions as much as possible.

Cons

Learning curve is a bit steep. Not always intuitive, and sometimes behaves unexpectedly.

"The oncoming standard in time tracking software"

May 05, 2008  |  By eburgwedel

 |  Version: TimeSlice 4.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
A few weeks ago I had to find a new time tracking software after switching from Windows to Mac. After I had tried, or at least looked at, almost a dozen different solutions, I stumbled over Time Slice 3, which was the latest official version then. I kind of liked it, but then 4.0 and a bit later, 4.0.1 were released.

What can I say? Not everything is perfect yet, but it is as close to a perfect time tracking software as you can get today. I've been working with TS for six weeks now, and I am very happy with it. It took me a little to see how it all works, a little more until I was set up, but now that I am, it works fast, effective and hassle free.

Many of the nice features you can find in other time trackers, too, but I haven't seen all of them in one piece of software:
- templates, that make different sets of settings accessible at a mouse click
- an application window tracker, that records the time you spent working with certain applications
- the possibility to pause and restart time records in order to keep the number of records low
- spotlight-type searches where ever you need to find something within a list
- filter presets that allow you define rather complex filters to be used in both tracking and reporting views
- a settings dialog that allows you to tailer almost everything to almost any need
- dozens of more features that I didn't even have the time to look at

The reporting and exporting tools do the work, although I know that the author is busy adding functionality there, which is good, since I guess that some folks might miss some detail here and there.

There is a very active Google Group for beta testing - the betas are also publicly available. The author is taking comments seriously and obviously working hard: today, the latest 4.0.2 Beta 9 already has a whole new set of features that I really like.

I personally have found my time tracker and am looking forward to oncoming versions.

"Works well if you have another reporting tool"

November 05, 2006  |  By eduweb

 |  Version: TimeSlice 3.3.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I used TimeSlice back in OS9 and found it to be a comprehensive time tracking tool. However, there are two problems I have with TimeSlice 3:

1. If you havea timer running, it hogs 5% of your CPU, even when it's in the background. If you're just running Word or something in the foreground, not a big deal. But if you run CPU intensive apps at the same time, that's an awful lot of overhead to give a timer. Minuteur uses about 1.5% CPU when a timer is running.

2. More seriously, the built-in summary (report) window is not very useful because it won't list tasks by project. It just shows all time for a given project, and then all time for a given task (even if it is across several projets). If you use a spreadsheet or something else to actually generate your invoices or do your project management from the TimeSlice data file, then you probably won't find this a limitation.

Finally, the developer is helpful in some ways-- issued an upgrade coupon to upgrade from the old 1.x version to 3.x. But when i tried asking about the summary format on the forum, I got several "You're posting in the wrong section" replies instead of some actual effort to understand the issue and suggest a solution. So I was rather disappointed by that.

"Great Value"

June 09, 2006  |  By bobcarr1

 |  Version: TimeSlice 3.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I use TS in a law office setting. TS is wonderfully flexible. I found that it can be customized to exactly fit the way I work and the way my clients want their work reported. To take full advantage of TSâ??s power requires some effort. Help is via the Menu or contacting the developer. I wish there was more well developed documentation in PDF form. TS is not entirely intuitive, at least to me, and I continually feel that I am missing something. The best part is that you get more than a useful application, you get support. Bill Modesitt is wonderfully customer oriented and responsive. He seems to be at work constantly trying to refine the application to the needs of his customers. This application, with such support, is a value deal.

"Homecoming"

March 03, 2004  |  By clashmore

 |  Version: TimeSlice 2.7.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Timeslice was the first shareware app I ever bought, some 12 years ago. Since then, both the software and its author's support have been indespensible to my business. I suspect most users breathed a huge sigh of relief when ownership reverted to Bill - since justified by the worthwhile improvements he's been making.
Use of any time billing app is subjective, but this must be just about the most intuitive, flexible, stable one there is - and easily the best value for money.

Summary

to see updates coming out after move from C&G. Have always enjoyed TimeSlice's simplicity and haven't been able to find anything better. So many other variant apps seem to over-design and complicate such a straigh forward taks.

Thanks William.

"Glad to see Modesitt (Maui) Software still in Charge"

August 06, 2003  |  By themacmaster

 |  Version: TimeSlice 2.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have been using timeslice for over 2 years and I am glad to see the product is still been supported and upgraded by the original creators after Casady and Greene have closed their door. Used with a custom filemaker pro database, I can keep the entire history of my work by separate categories for each client. I couldn't live without it.
