Editors' Review

Chaperone is task management software that actively tracks which apps you should be using to remind you if you get distracted midway through a project. It does this by assigning specific apps on your computer to each task you program, along with a time tracker that will automatically update depending on if you are working on your task or not.

After installation, Chaperone lives in your toolbar. Click the eye icon at any time to open a menu and start a new task. Define the task, choose a project for it, and then click the "Start" button and you will be "working" on that task until the time limit is up. If you open an app that is not in the predefined list you created for that task, Chaperone will remind you to get back to work. If you ignore it, it will eventually go to an automated five-minute break, which stops the task timer. The end result is that it serves to remind you and actively record the time spent on each task.

If you are interested in more actively tracking your tasks, reminding yourself to get back to work if you are distracted, or just want to have a more organized project/task management system on your desktop, consider downloading Chaperone. The app is free, easy to download from the App Store, and runs smoothly in the background without any slowdown issues. It's a solid productivity app that will help you stay on track when things get a little too hectic.

What's new in version 2.0.1

Your Chaperone would sometimes get confused and walk out on you while you were editing App Lists or Projects. We've given your Chaperone some coffee and it should be more attentive and notice those changes now.
