TimeKeeper is a lightweight Windows application whose purpose is to help you track your activities with the aid of a stopwatch.
You are welcomed by a clean and minimalist GUI that embeds only a few dedicated parameters in the working environment. There’s no support for a help manual but the configuration settings are highly intuitive so you are not going to invest a lot of time into the tweaking process.
How it works
TimeKeeper gives you the possibility to make use of several small buttons integrated in the GUI for controlling the timer, as you may start, pause or stop the current session, resume the time, as well as save the information to a log file.
In order to create a new session, you are asked to provide a custom name. While the stopwatch is activated, the utility reveals the time in hours, minutes and seconds, as well as the name of the session directly in the main window.
A few configuration settings are implemented for helping you change the looks of the application by choosing between several preset colors. Only the background color of the GUI is changed, so not the entire interface. In addition, you can choose between two different button display modes.
There are several advanced options that are missing from the feature pack. You are not allowed to work with a countdown timer and save multiple time lapses directly into the main window.
All things considered, TimeKeeper integrates only a basic feature pack for helping you track the time spent on different projects, and can be mastered by beginners and professionals alike. On the downside, it hasn’t been updated for a long time, so it may cause compatibility issues on newer operating systems.
