Full Specifications

What's new in version 4.1.4

Pause/Break Indicators

On the Jobs list screen, a yellow dot makes it easy to tell if a job is paused or on a break.

Pause time on Complications

Apple Watch Complications now show how long you've been paused or a break.

Bugs Fixed

Location-based clock out is fixed. Copy Time entry is fixed. Sometimes the jobs tab showed no jobs until you navigated away and back to it. Clocked in job stats were not always up to date. When 'On Clock Display' was set to 'Total Today', it also showed weekly summary info. Export date ranges sometimes did not save as expected. When manually adding a time entry, sometimes other time entries from today were not being used to help choose smart defaults.

- 4.1 Changes -

Automatic Breaks

Jobs can automatically start and end breaks each day. You'll get a notification when the preset break starts and ends, and your preset breaks are intelligently applied to manually-created time entries.

Clock In Reminders

HoursTracker helps you remember to clock in. You'll get a notification at the selected time on your selected work days if you've not tracked any time yet for that day.

Hours Per Week

Get a notification when you've worked the set number of hours this week, and see the weekly tally in real-time when on the clock.

Smarter New Time Entry Screen

HoursTracker will now look at past time entries for the same job and other jobs, in order to present more helpful start/end defaults.

Copy From Last Entry

Use the "copy from last entry" button at the top of the new entry screen to copy everything over from the last entry you've created. This includes breaks, adjustments, and comments. After copying, use the +/- buttons at the top to easily change the date.

Copy From Last Job

To save time creating jobs, use the "copy from" button at the top of the new job screen to start with the settings of the last job you edited. Then, enter the new job's name and make any necessary changes.

Copy Time Entry

Swipe left on a time entry and tap Copy. Then, use the +/- buttons at the top to move the entry's date backwards or forward. If your time entries are often similar to one another, this will save you a lot of effort!

Apple Watch Refresh

The Apple Watch app has been refreshed for watchOS 3, featuring a glance-friendly detail view perfect for the Dock, new launcher complications, and more reliable background updates.

New 3D Touch Quick Actions

The quick actions have been redesigned to focus on the currently active job. You'll see options for clocking in or out, or managing breaks. Tap the action you want, confirm the time and you're done.

Change App Icon

With iOS 10.3, you can now pick between the standard "stopwatch in a piggy bank" icon and a new simpler "stopwatch" icon.

Notification Sounds

All-new distinct notification sounds make it easy to tell what HoursTracker is trying to tell you.

iOS 10 Widget

The Widget is redesigned for iOS 10, including support for collapsed and expanded views. The widget can also be seen by using Force Touch on the app icon.

Bugfixes and Polish

FIXED: Buttons on the jobs list stop working. Passcode lock does not show keypad. Mileage left out of some exports. Time pickers default to non-5min interval when set to 5min mode. Wrong year displayed in some locales. Apple Watch app would clock in in the future without warning.
