“Toggl is a great time tracking tool for freelancers, contractors, or any time nerds who like to see where their time is going.”

User Review from GetApp

“I used this the most during my freelancing years and it was very nice to be able to have the Chrome extension in the corner to click to keep track of my hours. It even had a helpful reminder nudge if it saw that I was frequenting my work websites without timing myself.”

User Review from GetApp

“As a freelancer, I tried multiple time trackers to find the right one for my business. Toggl is by far my favorite in terms of features, cost, and ease of use. It has everything I need, and nothing I don't.”
