If you bill clients by the hour – or simply want to know how long you spend on individual projects – check out Iron Software’s MultiTimer Pro. This $39 Macintosh shareware program allows you to track multiple projects at the same time and store notes for each project. In addition, the program can start a timer the moment a file is opened (you can also configure the program to open files when you switch on a timer).
