7 Clockify Alternatives to Consider in 2023 (Free and Paid)

Sean Collins Sean Collins Last Updated:

Are you looking for Clockify alternatives? You’ve landed on the right page! 👏

We’ll analyze and dissect some of the best Clockify alternatives for freelancers and small teams.

But before diving into each time tracking app, let’s take a closer look at Clockify and explore why some are seeking alternatives.

Why do people consider alternatives to Clockify?

Clockify is a reliable time tracking tool; you can see that from the sheer number of positive reviews it gets on 3rd party review sites. 👇

Clockify G2 reviews

But while I’m sure they are hard at work trying to deliver the best product possible, Clockify isn’t a perfect fit for every company.

The most common negative feedback about this app is…

  • The UI isn’t the best, which isn’t ideal for teams looking to track time every day!
  • Their reporting features are not as powerful as other time tracking apps (more on this below! 👀)
  • The mobile app isn’t intuitive and can get out of sync with the browser app

What to look for in a Clockify alternative

Not all time trackers will work for you and your team. But when evaluating each time tracking app, consider the following criteria:

  1. User-friendly interface – your team will likely use the app daily. So it should be intuitive and easy to use for everyone.
  2. Accuracy and reliability – your app should accurately track time, and the data should be easily accessible, reliable, and secure.
  3. Reporting and analytics – look for an app that can provide robust reporting and analytics capabilities to help you track time and project progress.
  4. Mobile compatibility – not all time tracking software offers this. So make sure to triple-check when making your decision!
  5. Integrations – a time tracking tool won’t be the only app you have in your tech stack. So make sure it integrates with other tools and software that you use.
