Speedlink: Harvest

Harvest is a time-tracking webapp that has a broader scope than Time Tracking Tool, and so far I like it a bit better for my needs. The web interface is just a tad more efficient than that that of TTT.

Harvest is geared for businesses and generating invoices for billable hours, so it has this concept of Timesheets that let you pick tasks from your projects. This matches how I work pretty well, even though I'm not directly billing anybody. On my timesheet I can see at a glance where my time has gone for that day, and how much time total I've spent so far. This is the number one thing I need on an ongoing basis because my schedule is so irregular and I task switch so often between home and work.

I haven't looked into what support it has for planning, and tracking how estimates match actual figures, but I imagine the support is not there.
