Either way, do you truly know how much time you devote to email, browsing, iPhoto, iTunes, or any other app that takes your time away from friends, family, and well-deserved sleep?
SuperEgo knows. And it’s free.
Tracking Yourself First
Simply put, SuperEgo tracks which apps you use on your Mac and when and for how much time on each document, webpage, or anything else of value.
On the other hand, SuperEgo doesn’t track exactly what you write, or the details of what you create or edit.
It’s there simply to track the time you devote to an app or document or file.
All that data is collected and stored on your Mac but isn’t shared. There’s also nothing to configure.
SuperEgo resides in the background and simply monitors your Mac for usage– what you’re doing on which app and when.
That’s the easy part.
Checking SuperEgo’s extensive data collection requires a little more thought and quite a bit more effort. You can setup apps and documents in lists to categorize or classify what you do, which makes things easier, but it’s a manual process.
Of course, you can also export data so it can be stuffed into a database or spreadsheet for additional analysis.
I like the extensive amount of data that SuperEgo collects, but what I really want is a little eye candy in the way of charts and graphs which give me a visual representation of both the apps I use and the time of day I use them and how much total time is devoted to each.
