With the latest update and the release of Team Tyme, we took the opportunity to make it easier for everyone to try Tyme before buying. For macOS we already had a free trial that you could download via our website, but the upgrade process to the full version via the Mac App Store was not very elegant and users were often confused how they migrate their data. For iOS this was not even possible until today.
That’s why Tyme is now available on all platforms as a free download. When you start the app, you have four options:
- Try Tyme for free for 2 weeks
- Purchase the single user version (EUR 24,99 / USD 22.99)
- Subscribe to Team Tyme (EUR 3,99 / USD 3.99) per member and month
- Login into an existing team
When the trial expires and you didn’t purchase Tyme or are member of a team, Tyme runs in a read-only mode. So you still have access to your data and can view and export it, but you are not able to create new projects or time entries.
We’re happy to announce, that the release of Team Tyme is very close. Expect it do be in the app stores within the next weeks.
Right now, we’re polishing the last bits and pieces and the beta test is nearly finished. We’ll keep you posted.
The latest update brings the following new features into Tyme:
- New 20 minute rounding option
- Automatic backup option (macOS only). Everybody makes mistakes. So if you accidentally deleted an important project or task, don’t worry there is a backup. Tyme can make automatic backups of your data multiple times a day and keeps backups up to seven days in the past.
- Searchable dropdown menus (macOS only). Use a full text search while selecting tasks for long lists
We are working hard on a large extension for Tyme: Team Tyme. With Team Tyme you’ll be able to track your time together with your team mates and have an instant overview of your team projects total time and budget. Inspect your team performance for specific tasks, date ranges or team members.Projects & tasks can be assigned on a per member basis. All clients are updated instantly. Everything is live. As an admin, you can edit, add or delete anything at every time and lock or restrict access to tasks for regular users.When it comes to exporting your team data, you can use all the power Tyme already offers. Export your data via CSV, PDF, JSON or write custom exporters using AppleScript.
But the most important question: When will it be available? We plan for a release beginning of next year. Stay tuned …
When we released Tyme 2 in February 2016, we also discontinued Tyme 1. But we also made sure that it still works on macOS Sierra by pushing a last update. Now with the release of High Sierra, we can not guarantee that Tyme 1 still works.
TL;DR: Tyme 1 is not fully compatible with High Sierra. Tyme 2 is of course fully compatible.
If you’re affected by this issue and Tyme 1 is crashing upon startup, you can still transfer your data to Tyme 2 by following these steps:
- Please download the SQLLiteBrowser: http://sqlitebrowser.org
- Open the Tyme 1 database in this folder:
- Close SQLLiteBrowser
- You now should have only one file in that folder: Tyme.storedata (SQLLiteBrowser reduces the three database files into one)
- Open Tyme 2 and import the file Tyme.storedata
If Tyme 2 complains that the file isn’t a proper Tyme 1 backup file, don’t worry, everything is fixable. Follow these steps to repair it:
- Open the Tyme 1 database again
- Select File > Export > SQL and save the file
- Click “New Database” and give it a filename
- Select File > Import > SQL and select the previous saved SQL file
- Save and then rename the file extension to .storedata
- Import it in Tyme 2
We’ve just released the 1.9.2 update, which includes the following changes:
- Added: The „Show Tyme“ shortcut hides Tyme, if already shown
- Added: Sync to Google calendars
- Fixed: Status bar menu in High Sierra for full screen apps
- Fixed: A small issue in the chart prediction
- Fixed: Linebreaks for notes in the PDF export
- Improved: The watch app reacts a lot faster now
This update mostly fixes some smaller things and UI glitches. There was one strange bug on iOS regarding geofence time entries, they just weren’t synced to other devices sometimes. This edge case has been finally solved. Happy tracking!
We’ve just released the 1.9.0 update for macOS and iOS which contains the following changes:
- Fixed: Sort order for archived projects
- Fixed: De-archiving of tasks in an archived project doesn’t activate all tasks anymore
- Fixed: Dropping a task below the last row doesn’t snap back anymore
- Added: Category is shown in all lists, when a project name is not unique
We’ve just released the 1.8.2 update which includes the following changes:
- Added: Option to duplicate tasks and time entries (macOS)
- Added: More date ranges: Last 7 days, last 30 days, etc. (macOS)
- Added: Total sum on bar charts (macOS & iOS)
- Fixed: Mileage display for UK region settings (macOS & iOS)
- Improved: Thumb friendlier menu navigation (swipe to open the menu, iOS)
- Improved: Made the calendar sync a bit faster (macOS & iOS)
- Improved: Search is on top of each screen for faster search now (iOS)
We’ve just released version 1.8.0. Besides several smaller bugfixes this update contains a new time tracking mode: Cluster.
When the cluster mode is enabled, Tyme doesn’t care about start- and end times anymore, but records a single time entry per task for each day. So if you’re just interested in the total duration of a task per day, this mode is for you. In the standard mode (Slot mode) Tyme behaves as before and records individual time entries with start- and end times.
