Exactly two years ago Timings 1.0 was released.
Today Timings 2.0 is going public beta with a completely overhauled much more graphical design.
As requested by a lot of users version 2.0 brings a brand new graphical calendar and a slicker single window interface.
All this comes at a cost. Back in january I have removed the iPhone App from the store. This was for two major reasons:
- Timings 1.0 for Mac compromised on features to be compatible with the iPhone app that had to work on the small screen.
- Demand for the iPhone version was much lower than expected. The poor sales did not justify to spend any more time on it.
As expected, in the last couple of months only a few users noticed the absence of the iPhone app.
If you need to register time on the go this should be no problem because events from the OS X Calendar app can be dragged to Timings. Just create an event in your iOS calendar or one of the countless Applications that are compatible with the iOS calendar and drag it to your project when you are back on your Mac.
Timings 2.0 is a free update for all Timings users and requires OS X 10.9 Mavericks to run.

How to use Reports in Timings
Later this year Apple will release OS X 10.8 called Mountain Lion. Beside adding a lot of cool new features, Apple also decided to drop some features.
Unfortunately one of them is the technology that TimeLog uses to talk to iCal.
This comes not totally unexpected because there where a lot of changes in Lion already. For that reason I started developing a brand new application last summer. One that does not rely on iCal:
