We are going to show you a list of the best apps to track work or study hours. Thanks to our Android phone, we can control in detail how much time we have spent studying or working, which will help us get a feel for the pace we are going.

All the apps we are going to show you are free and can be downloaded from the Google app store. Without further ado, let’s see what the best options are for controlling your days.

Focus on doing

Focus To-Do is the app I personally use to find out how much time I spend on each task at work. It works thanks to the Pomodoro method, by which you will set 25 minute periods (you can configure this as you like).

The best thing about the app is that you can categorize the tasks and order them as you like, so you know how long each one takes you. For example, you can set 3 pomodoros (a little over an hour) for a certain task and rest when you have completed it. It’s completely free and even has a PC version.

Work file

His name couldn’t be more descriptive. With Work Record, you can easily keep track of your working hours. All you need to do is adjust your working hours and update your arrival and departure times. You can also adjust the breaks to really know how much you’ve worked.

To make it even easier for us, we can export all of these files in CSV format, to view them in spreadsheet format if we prefer. It’s free and works great, with a simple but functional interface.

Timesheet: time manager

Timesheet is a very simple application that allows us to record hours of work or study with just one button. In the same way, we can add breaks, to square everything. It is a very simple application, which will add up the total time that we have worked. We can also export the data in XLS and CSV format for Excel, a real gem for free.


Business hours

WorkingHours is another great app that organizes our time. In this case, it is more visual than most of its competition, you can add labels to tasks and it is also compatible with PC. Its only downside is that it is in English, but it is very easy to use and understand.

To complete the compilation, we have a rather different application. It’s called Bitacora.io and allows us to manually record our daily activities. This allows us, in a slightly slower (but more efficient) way to know what we have been doing each hour, a completely manual recording of our activity. We can also create engaging reports on what we’ve been up to and sync that information to the cloud.
