If you're a freelancer, attorney, or anyone else who works on a variety of different projects and needs to keep track of your billable hours, Time Stamp is a simple way to complete this task. But Time Stamp is more than just a way to keep track of the work you do; it also keeps track of the work you don't do, letting you track the amount of time you spend on breaks and distractions and showing how much that time is costing you. When you do this kind of work, your time literally is money, and Time Stamp makes it obvious how wasted time equates to wasted earning potential.

Time Stamp's interface isn't going to win any beauty contests, but it's fairly easy to use. You simply set the hourly rate and then click a button to start timing. When you're ready to stop working, you can either stop the time or start the "slack timer," which will track how much time you're spending on non-work-related activities. The program tracks your total work time, total slack time, and the total time elapsed, as well as how much money you've made and how much you've wasted slacking. Each period of time is recorded separately, and you can enter notes next to each one to describe activities. Time Stamp has a built-in Help file that is brief but adequate. Overall, we found Time Stamp to be a no-fuss way to keep track of the time spent on particular projects, and we recommend it.

Time Stamp comes as a ZIP file. It installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal.
