About Daily

Daily shows what you have been doing and for how long. It tracks your time by periodically asking what you are doing instead of using timers. Use resulting timesheets to submit your hours, create invoices, or increase productivity.

Tracking time by asking what you're doing

Forget toggling timers, stopwatches or note-taking. Daily tracks your time by periodically asking what you are doing. This way, you will never forget to track any billable hour. Additionally, Daily helps prevent procrastination by letting you confirm your current activity regularly.

Accurate timesheets

View accurate timesheets per day, week, month, and year, broken down by categories, projects, or customers. Use them to create invoices, report hours, or increase productivity. Additionally, see when you started and stopped working.

Plan when to track time

Make Daily fit your working schedule. It features a scheduler enabling you to specify when Daily should track your time per day of the week. You can also (temporarily) disable time tracking or silently track an activity for a specific period.

Automatically export hours

Import hours into your favorite invoicing software to create invoices or your company's HR system to report your hours. You can use AppleScript to automate this. Daily supports exporting in CSV, JSON, and various application-specific formats.

Simple yet powerful

Daily is simple to use yet fully configurable to support your way of working. It looks beautiful both in light and dark mode. System-wide keyword shortcuts allow you to operate Daily from within other apps, and data is synchronized between your devices using iCloud.


Daily is available on the Mac App Store and can be tried for free for 7 days. After that, a license can be obtained for $29.99 per year. Alternatively, a lifetime license can be purchased for $59.99. Daily is also available on SetApp.

Developer Story

Daily is developed by Niels Mouthaan, fulltime indie software developer.

Years ago, I used to work as an iOS developer for a digital agency. Each Friday, I was asked to submit my hours for that week. I estimated these hours by examining emails, reviewing commits, and finding attended meetings. Like many, I experienced it as a tedious task. Yet, it was of great importance for invoicing and budgeting purposes.

I started looking for apps to help me. Most time tracking apps required me to toggle timers when switching between tasks. I often forgot to do this, making the resulting timesheets inaccurate.

Working on my thesis and conducting quantitative research, I realized that data sampling could be an excellent alternative for tracking time. Daily is the resulting implementation of that approach. It works by asking what the user is doing and provides a better way to track time without toggling timers.
