    Pretty much every time tracker we’ve tried are built for managers, so we're taking a different approach. Ding is made for people like ourselves — designers & developers — that operates in small teams or freelance.

    We'd love to get your feedback.

      I like how the hero image changes to show the app in an iPhone when you get past the mobile breakpoint. Nice!

    A lot of great productivity web apps lately! Love it! Definitely giving this a try. :)

    I'll swap my test results for a promo code! ;-)

    I like how the screenshots in the App Store has a non-English keyboard, that's neat.

    Even though I work for a startup, I also do work on the side. This could come in handy.

    I'll sign up and send you an email! (;

    Looks awesome. Does Ding have a desktop timer thingy? This is the one reason I utilise Harvest (which doesn't have a very nice web app)

    edit - I just read the above comment. I do get your reasons why not to include it, but I kind of need a timer

      This seems to be on many people's wishlist, so we'll consider making one. For now, have a stab at Eon (w/ Ding integration) and see if it helps you out: fuelcollective.com/eon

    I need a native menu bar app to toggle my time or the time tracking tool is a non-starter for me.

    You're advertising this as a time tracker, yet the only way to "track" is by entering it manually after you've done it. Or am I totally missing the bit where you press a button and it starts tracking for you?

      When we use the term 'time tracking', it's about keeping track of your working hours over time — longer than you can remember. You're right that there's no start/stop feature, and this is by design. It's the kind of thing we think sounds better in theory than in actual use. When you start a timer, all kinds of things can mess this up. You spend an hour on the phone with another client while your timer is still running, you forget to turn it off when you leave your desk for the night, etc etc. It just seems like there's too many cases where it actually works against you rather than with you, and that's why we've left it out of the product. Also, I personally get stressed by knowing that the meter is constantly running.

      Having said that, you're not the first who's asked, so who knows.

      EDIT: We've now implemented a timer :)

    That looks super nice, but every time I see yet another time tracking, invoicing, or project management app I wonder if there really is a need for yet another solution to those problems.

    Then again, there's a lot of restaurants around yet people keep opening new ones. So maybe I'm wrong :)

      Well, we believed we could make a product that's better and more focused than the others out there — especially for freelancers and teams of our size (two). That kind of ambition, paired with execution, is always welcome in my book.

      More and more people are able to go freelance with just a laptop and a bright mind these days, so I'd be happy to see people making better tools aimed at these guys.
