RescueTime Review


RescueTime is another of the many applications that help you tracking your spent time, but it’s an excellent one. Time management and tracking apps allow you to be more productive. RescueTime offers profound insight into time spent on your PC while working, keeping traces of every activity. This service works through the website that shows statistics collected by a small application you can install locally. The desktop application operates in the background collecting data for the time you spend on sites or apps, classifying them on a five-point scale from Very Distracting to Very Productive, and watching your complete computer activity while you work.


Reports are thorough and very helpful. You can customize setup to help make RescueTime more accurate in activity classification: you can set your work hours and days and your core business. The app lets you quickly understand when you tend to be the most productive giving you bar graphs, pie charts, lists of sites you visited, applications you used how much time you spent doing what.

Aren’t you the productive worker you’d love to be? Just turn on FocusTime option: RescueTime will block distracting website/applications and sends you notifications helping you to focus. FocusTime lets you also set rules.

The RescueTime Lite free version is best for most workers and freelancers to get a track on their time management. If you need more, you can choose the RescueTime Premium version that costs $9 per month or $72 per year and tracks phone calls, meetings, breaks, time spent away, and shows you on-screen reminders to focus on what you’re doing. A free 14-days trial is available.


RescueTime is one of the best and simplest to use time tracking software. It offers a wide range of features and customizable tools.
