Time is a non-renewable resouce, of which we only have so much. Tracking where you spend your time can help you make more informed decisions in your life and work. Tracking your time can also make you more accountable, to yourself and others.
Timist combines time tracking with the unique Timist Session System, that enables you to spend your time in creative and focused bursts, with the option of a short break afterwards. Short breaks in between sessions of focused work can increase your cognitive capabilities and are great for motiviation.
Limited time on work sessions can also serve as a way to timebox your tasks and fights Parkinson’s law. The law is based on an observation that work always fills the available time, no matter how long - so limiting the amount of time for a certain task can help to not inflate it.

I (this is me talking) created the app because I was frustrated with the time tracking apps I was using in the past - so I decided to make my own. I am happy to make myself available to any journalists, bloggers, or podcasters wishing to discuss the Timist app or the business of indepentend iOS development.
