Automatic time tracker timeBro connects with mite

timeBro is an application for macOS and Windows that aims to help you to track your times faster and more accurately. Once installed, the app will run in the background and will automatically record how much time you spent working with every program, every document, every e-mail.

timeBro will display the recorded data in a daily calendar view. Based on this data, you will then create your time entries. Thanks to the new integration, you can now export these time entries from timeBro to mite.

Automatic time tracker timeBro connects with mite

timeBro allows you to assign your time entries to projects and services as well. When configuring the integration, you can choose which of your mite.projects should be available in timeBro. Also, you can choose which mite.services should be available on each project.

Setup

Before timeBro and mite will be able to work together, you’ll have to setup the connection once:

  1. First, please allow API access for your user in mite. Click on your user name in the upper right corner, activate API access, copy your API key, and save changes. The mite.api is our open data interface. timeBro will access your mite.data over this programming interface.
  2. New to timeBro? You can download a test version. When timeBro asks which app to connect, choose mite. If you already use timeBro, head over to the settings and choose mite at the tab »Connected Apps«. Furthermore, timeBro will need the login address of your mite.account: https://myTeam.mite.yo.lk/
  3. After having installed timeBro, the app will ask for your API key. Furthermore, you will be able to specify some personal preferences how exactly the two apps should work together.

Done! From the tab »Time tracking« in timeBro, you will now be able to export your time entries to mite.

Thank you

This new connection was developed by timeBro. Thanks a lot for your time and effort, Arne and Mislav!

Updated: mite.go, the iPhone app for mite

Oh no, this update does not only feature a pimped button here and a prettier color there. Daniel Rinser and Victor Saar re-built their native iPhone app mite.go from scratch.

Although mite.go kept its main features, the new version feels quite different. Adding time entries, running the timer, managing customers, projects, and services—all of these tasks can be handled much more smoothly, thanks to the re-thought interface, optimized for current iPhones with larger Retina displays and iOS8.

mite.go: Time tracking iPhone app

The detached timer tab is gone. Instead, you can now access all time tracking features directly from one single tab, as you’re used to from mite. Plus, the weekly calendar found its way into mite.go, too.

Last but not least, mite.go caught up from a technical point of view. Unsurprisingly, lots of things have changed since 2010, when the two independant developers released the first version of their app.

Please head over to the App Store to download the update. If you use mite.go already, the update is for free. For new users, it’s $4.99 (4.99 €, 5.00 CHF).

Please note: mite.go communicates with your mite.account through the mite.api, our open data interface. You’ll have to allow API access for your account first, so the app will be able to work properly. Click on your user name in the upper right-hand corner of mite to allow API access.

Thanks for your dedication, Daniel and Victor!

Freedom for mite.desk

mite.desk, the windows client for mite developed by 69°‘s Thomas Bandt in 2009, is free now: it’s available on GitHub under a free licence. If you’re a user, you can download it for free. If you’re a developer, you can improve, extend, built-on, or learn from it as you wish.

Thanks for your great decision, Thomas! We really appreciate it. It’s fair, wise, and awesome to open source a project instead of silently shutting it down, in case one does not have the time or energy to maintain it anymore. Fingers crossed for you, mite.desk: hopefully, you’ll meet some kind developers who wish to grant you a second life.

Meet Clockson, the new iPhone app for mite

Hear hear, iPhone users: There’s a new app to track your time on the go, Clockson!

Time tracking on the iPhone with Clockson

NinjaConcept, a software studio from Germany, initially developed the app for themselves. Now, they released the app into the wild, so all other mite.users can track their time via Clockson, too. Besides manually adding your hours, you can let the timer do the tracking. In the footer of the app, you can see at a glance how many hours you already worked on the current day, the current week, or the current month. Clockson is a simple yet helpful app with a fresh, clean look.

Clockson is available on the App Store for free, and will remain free for the near future.

Please note: Clockson communicates with your mite.account through the mite.api, our open data interface. You’ll have to allow API access for your account first, so the app will be able to work properly. Click on your user name in the upper right-hand corner of mite to allow API access.

If you give Clockson a try, please be so kind to take a minute to leave a review on the App Store, or a comment right here. You’ll not only support the Ninjas in improving their app, but you’ll also help other users with your opinion. Thanks in advance for your feedback—and thanks to the Ninjas for your dedication!

Planscope project management integrates with mite

The web-based project management tool Planscope now integrates with mite. When you start a timer on a task in Planscope, or add a time entry manually, this time will show up in mite too. Thanks to the integration, you won’t have to add any more time entries twice.

Project management tool Planscope integrates with mite

Projects in Planscope can be bundled with projects in mite. Also, you can define a service to which time entries in mite will be assigned. The title of the task in Planscope will be referenced as a note of each time entry in mite. There’s a short video on Planscope’s blog which shows the integration in action.

This new integration was developed and will be taken care of by Planscope. Thanks a lot for your time and effort, Brennan and team!

Meet Anytime, the mite.app for your iPhone

Four months ago, a third-party developer got in touch by e-mail. He asked us to check out the private beta of his iPhone app with full mite.support, Anytime. We did. We gazed. We were amazed. This guy did nothing less than a fully-featured mite for iPhone, out of the blue!

Anytime: time tracking with mite on your iPhone

Time tracking, management of customers, projects, and services, as well as detailed reporting, and export features to Dropbox on top. Anytime was a real deal, and got even better during the following months when we were invited to witness the ongoing improvements.

Today, Anytime is finally officially available on the App Store. It’s $4.99. Congrats to the launch, Josef Materi, and thanks for your dedication!

Upgraded: DynaMite, the mite.client for Mac users

Hear hear, Mac users: version 2.0 of DynaMite was released today. With DynaMite, you have full control over your timers directly from the menu bar of your operating system – it’s kind of a remote for your mite.

DynaMite, the sleek mite.client for Mac users

Thanks to the new version, time entries can now be enriched with notes. Plus, stopping a ticking timer became a whole lot easier: just right-click on the orange icon in your menu bar to stop the timer.

Features

  • Always keep an eye on ticking timers; And never forget to switch ’em off, ever, again.
  • Start, stop or switch timers with a single click.
  • See the total working time of your last working days at a glance.

If you’re tracking your exact working hours throughout the day, DynaMite makes time tracking so much more easy. Really – we’ve been using it ourselves.

Installing DynaMite

DynaMite makes use of our open data interface, the mite.api. To setup the connection, you’ll have to activate the mite.api within your account first. You’ll find this option by clicking on your user name in the upper right-hand corner in mite. Please activate the corresponding checkbox there and save your changes.

During set-up, DynaMite will ask for your account name: that’s the subdomain of your mite.account. E.g., if you login at http://testteam.mite.yo.lk, the account name is »testteam«.

Later on, a window will pop up, asking for your e-mail address and your password, or, your Mac will ask you to allow using your mite.credentials stored in your key chain. Please enter the credentials asked or allow access to those infos in your key chain. DynaMite needs those credentials to connect with your mite.account.

Trial vs. full version

You can give DynaMite a try for free: the only limitation of the trial version is that timers won’t run for more than 30 minutes at one go.

A single license of the full version of DynaMite can be purchased within the external application. DynaMite is €10 $15, support by MediaAtelier included. Mac OS 10.5+ is required.

Merci, MediaAtelier

Adding notes to time entries in DynaMite was feature request number 1 since the first beta version. But, this feature wasn’t trivial to add. Stefan Fürst, developer of DynaMite, had to rebuild DynaMite from scratch to make this happen. Therefore, we’re double grateful he took this step. Thank you, Stefan!

Last but not least: Stefan is also the brain behind GrandTotal, the invoicing app for Mac users that integrates with mite. We’re happy to inform you that this hint might be special to you. There’s a promotion going on: If you buy GrandTotal and DynaMite bundled, you won’t pay a Cent for DynaMite. The bundle costs exactly the same as a regular license of GrandTotal.

~~
Update, 2019: MediaAtelier doesn’t offer DynaMite to new customers anymore. So sad. However, as a current or former customer, you can still download DynaMite 3 over here.
