There's a first update available on the App Store for our official iPhone app. Version 1.1 includes two improvements and one bugfix:
- Swipe left or right to switch between days.
To navigate to an earlier or future day, there were and still are arrow buttons available in the top navigation. The new gesture should make switching days even easier, and facilitate the use of the app with a single hand.
- Pull to refresh: Drag the list of a day's time entries downward to manually update all of its data.
Until now, you had to switch days to force a reload. The new gesture should speed up the process, and improve the app for those who use mite on several devices at the same time.
- Minor bugfix: If you stopped the timer on a time entry outside of the app by directly switching the timer to another entry, the app didn't update the hours of the first entry correctly.
Hopefully, this update will improve mite for iPhone a little. The two new gestures have been the top user requests so far. Thanks for your numerous, constructive feedback on all channels! We are happy to hear that you appreciate the app.
iPhone users, prick your ears! We have a new little something to help you getting things done: mite for iPhone.
mite for iPhone wishes to enable you to track your hours on the go – in a simple, fast, and convenient way.
- When starting the app, you’ll see today’s hours at a glance. From this daily view, you can add new time entries, and edit or delete existing ones.
- Let the timer do the tracking or add time entries manually. You can choose whether to track the mere hours or if you’d like to track starting- and ending times too.
- Furthermore, we built-in a »Frequently used« section. Pick from your recent project/service combos to create a new time entry, fast.
mite for iPhone will cooperate smoothly with mite in your browser or on your Mac. All data are stored centrally on our servers, so mite.wherever is always up-to-date.
mite for iPhone is provided by us, and thus included in the regular user fees. The app is available in English and German language. It requires iOS 14.0 or higher.
To create this app, we were happy to rely on well-tried jokers: Daniel Rinser and Victor Saar, the developers of the (now retired) iPhone app mite.go. These two coded mite for iPhone, its concept is teamwork. Thanks so much for your solid, patient work!
mite for iPhone has been our Friday’s project for quite some months now. Despite being thoroughly tested, bugs might still creep up on uncommon setups.
In case you stumble upon a problem, please help us to fix it right away and get in touch with a detailed description. You can also send feedback from within the app. Your technical info will be included automatically then.
It would be wonderful to also hear from you what you appreciate about the app, what’s unclear to you, or what’s urgently missing.
mite for iPhone, go!
Mac user? Making use of the timer feature to exactly measure your working hours? This news is for you then: Today launches mite.nano, our new small app for macOS.
mite.nano wants to make it easier for you to track your time on a Mac. It sits in your menu bar. Whatever you’re working on, you can always keep an eye on a running timer. Double-click to stop the timer, never forget it.
When clicking on mite.nano, a sleek pop-up menu will appear. Switch the timer to another time entry, create a new entry by picking from your recently used ones or by selecting another active project and service.
Furthermore, if you use mite with several teams, mite.nano lets you switch accounts easily.
mite.nano will cooperate smoothly with mite in your browser or on your smartphone. All data are stored centrally on our servers, so mite.wherever is always up-to-date.
mite.nano is developed by us (our first native app, yay!). And thus 100% included in the regular user fees for mite.
Download mite.nano for free.
mite.nano is available in English and German language. It requires macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) or higher. 161 MB.
We tested mite.nano thoroughly. Nevertheless, this is a version 1.0, so bugs might have crept in. In case you stumble upon a problem or have feedback or a suggestion, please be so kind to tell us in as much detail as possible. Please send us an email or leave a comment right here. Your support would be much appreciated.
Our thanks go to Stefan Fürst from Swiss MediaAtelier. Back in 2009, Stefan developed an add-on for mite called DynaMite, which was retired in 2019. Obviously DynaMite has been a big “inspiration” for mite.nano. Many users missed the tool so much that – with his permission – we decided to rebuild his idea from scratch. Merci vielmal, Stefan!
timeBro is an application for macOS and Windows that aims to help you to track your times faster and more accurately. Once installed, the app will run in the background and will automatically record how much time you spent working with every program, every document, every e-mail.
timeBro will display the recorded data in a daily calendar view. Based on this data, you will then create your time entries. Thanks to the new integration, you can now export these time entries from timeBro to mite.
timeBro allows you to assign your time entries to projects and services as well. When configuring the integration, you can choose which of your mite.projects should be available in timeBro. Also, you can choose which mite.services should be available on each project.
Before timeBro and mite will be able to work together, you’ll have to setup the connection once:
- First, please allow API access for your user in mite. Click on your user name in the upper right corner, activate API access, copy your API key, and save changes. The mite.api is our open data interface. timeBro will access your mite.data over this programming interface.
- New to timeBro? You can download a test version. When timeBro asks which app to connect, choose mite. If you already use timeBro, head over to the settings and choose mite at the tab »Connected Apps«. Furthermore, timeBro will need the login address of your mite.account: https://myTeam.mite.yo.lk/
- After having installed timeBro, the app will ask for your API key. Furthermore, you will be able to specify some personal preferences how exactly the two apps should work together.
Done! From the tab »Time tracking« in timeBro, you will now be able to export your time entries to mite.
This new connection was developed by timeBro. Thanks a lot for your time and effort, Arne and Mislav!
Oh no, this update does not only feature a pimped button here and a prettier color there. Daniel Rinser and Victor Saar re-built their native iPhone app mite.go from scratch.
Although mite.go kept its main features, the new version feels quite different. Adding time entries, running the timer, managing customers, projects, and services—all of these tasks can be handled much more smoothly, thanks to the re-thought interface, optimized for current iPhones with larger Retina displays and iOS8.
The detached timer tab is gone. Instead, you can now access all time tracking features directly from one single tab, as you’re used to from mite. Plus, the weekly calendar found its way into mite.go, too.
Last but not least, mite.go caught up from a technical point of view. Unsurprisingly, lots of things have changed since 2010, when the two independant developers released the first version of their app.
Please head over to the App Store to download the update. If you use mite.go already, the update is for free. For new users, it’s $4.99 (4.99 €, 5.00 CHF).
Please note: mite.go communicates with your mite.account through the mite.api, our open data interface. You’ll have to allow API access for your account first, so the app will be able to work properly. Click on your user name in the upper right-hand corner of mite to allow API access.
Thanks for your dedication, Daniel and Victor!
mite.desk, the windows client for mite developed by 69°‘s Thomas Bandt in 2009, is free now: it’s available on GitHub under a free licence. If you’re a user, you can download it for free. If you’re a developer, you can improve, extend, built-on, or learn from it as you wish.
Thanks for your great decision, Thomas! We really appreciate it. It’s fair, wise, and awesome to open source a project instead of silently shutting it down, in case one does not have the time or energy to maintain it anymore. Fingers crossed for you, mite.desk: hopefully, you’ll meet some kind developers who wish to grant you a second life.
Hear hear, iPhone users: There’s a new app to track your time on the go, Clockson!
NinjaConcept, a software studio from Germany, initially developed the app for themselves. Now, they released the app into the wild, so all other mite.users can track their time via Clockson, too. Besides manually adding your hours, you can let the timer do the tracking. In the footer of the app, you can see at a glance how many hours you already worked on the current day, the current week, or the current month. Clockson is a simple yet helpful app with a fresh, clean look.
Clockson is available on the App Store for free, and will remain free for the near future.
Please note: Clockson communicates with your mite.account through the mite.api, our open data interface. You’ll have to allow API access for your account first, so the app will be able to work properly. Click on your user name in the upper right-hand corner of mite to allow API access.
If you give Clockson a try, please be so kind to take a minute to leave a review on the App Store, or a comment right here. You’ll not only support the Ninjas in improving their app, but you’ll also help other users with your opinion. Thanks in advance for your feedback—and thanks to the Ninjas for your dedication!
The web-based project management tool Planscope now integrates with mite. When you start a timer on a task in Planscope, or add a time entry manually, this time will show up in mite too. Thanks to the integration, you won’t have to add any more time entries twice.
Projects in Planscope can be bundled with projects in mite. Also, you can define a service to which time entries in mite will be assigned. The title of the task in Planscope will be referenced as a note of each time entry in mite. There’s a short video on Planscope’s blog which shows the integration in action.
This new integration was developed and will be taken care of by Planscope. Thanks a lot for your time and effort, Brennan and team!
Hear hear, Mac users: Do you use Lion or higher? Then this is for you. Version 3 of DynaMite, the sleek mite.client for Mac OS, has arrived!
What is DynaMite?
DynaMite is an add-on for Mac users which is developed and maintained by Swiss MediaAtelier. DynaMite is kind of a remote for your mite. It sits directly in the menu bar of your Mac. Right here, you’ll see at a glance if a timer is running, and if so, how many minutes you’ve been working already. Stop or edit running timers with a single click. Or create a new time entry with a running timer in no time at all.
What’s new in version 3?
- Idle timers
- Time entries with multiline notes
- Click a day summary to view the corresponding mite.page
- Increase or decrease running timers right from your menu bar
- Switch easily between multiple mite.accounts
How much is DynaMite?
DynaMite is an add-on of an independent 3rd party, Swiss MediaAtelier. Thus, you’ll have to pay a small extra to use it. DynaMite costs €12 (one-time fee). If you upgrade from DynaMite 1 or 2, the upgrade is €5 only. If you bought DynaMite 1 or 2 on or after September 1st, 2012, the upgrade is for free.
DynaMite makes use of our open data interface, the mite.api. To setup the connection, you’ll have to activate the mite.api for your user first. You’ll find this option in mite by clicking on your user name in the upper right-hand corner. Please activate the corresponding checkbox there and save your changes.
During set-up, DynaMite will ask for your account name: that’s the subdomain of your mite.account. E.g., if you login at https://acme.mite.yo.lk, the account name is »acme«.
Later on, a window will pop up, asking for your e-mail address and your password, or, your Mac will ask you to access your mite.credentials stored in your keychain. Please enter the credentials asked, or allow access to those infos in your keychain. DynaMite needs those credentials to connect with your mite.account.
Stefan, thanks so much for continuously improving DynaMite! Merci, and grüezi to Züri.
Update, 2019: MediaAtelier doesn’t offer DynaMite to new customers anymore. So sad. However, as a current or former customer, you can still download DynaMite 3 over here.
smallinvoice, a web-based invoicing and project management app made in Switzerland, now integrates with mite. You can import time entries tracked with mite, and convert them to an invoice with a few easy clicks. The integration is available in their advanced plan.
smallinvoice is the third invoicing app available in English that integrates with mite. Web-based SalesKing offers an import, and GrandTotal, a native Mac app, will be happy to convert your time entries as well.
smallinvoice handles time entries tracked with mite pretty flexibly. Filters and/or grouping options known from »Reports => Time entries« stand at your service in smallinvoice, too. Of course, you can add other service or product items to your invoicing items imported from mite.
smallinvoice talks to your mite.account via the mite.api, our open data interface. You’ll have to allow API access for your account first, so smallinvoice will be able to import your time entries properly. Click on your user name in the upper right-hand corner of mite to allow API access, and copy your API key.
Now head over to smallinvoice. There, click on »Configuration => Integration«, and choose mite. Enter your personal login URL and your mite API key.
Done! smallinvoice and mite now work as a team.
Thank you, smallinvoice
This new import feature was developed and will be taken care of by smallinvoice. Thanks a lot for your time and effort, Graem and team!
