It’s a busy life we lead. Between work, play, family time, rest, secret-other-family time, whatever it may be that you’ve got going on, making sure you’re distributing your time evenly can be a challenge. The simple Android fix Jiffy is here to help.
What does it do?
Lets you track up to three activities in the free version, and as many as you can handle in the $2 premium version. The main screen lists all your running tasks, letting you tap the one you’re about to begin and automatically stopping whichever came before. As time goes on, you can look at summaries by day, week, month in all sorts of fun, brightly coloured charts — all of which can be saved as a backup.
Why do we like it?
The app’s UI couldn’t suit its purpose better: a simplified app to try and break down a complicated life. And if you’re more worried about keeping time than you are about reminding yourself to move on, you can set work times so the app stops tracking at a certain point whether you remember to flip it off or not. One of the most practical features, though, is its ability to export a CSV file of all your time-kept data, which you can then use in invoices, web apps, alibis, etc.
