About mite

mite is a web-based time tracking tool for teams and freelancers: designers, developers, advertising agencies, architects, attorneys, non-profits and many more. mite wants to provide a more human way to track and analyze working hours. Time tracking has been an annoying necessity for all too long – but it's a must to get paid as well as to improve your workflow.

mite lets you track your time in a structured way by breaking it down into customers, projects, and services. Track your time manually or with the built-in stop watch. Track it in the browser, on your Mac or PC, on your iPhone, via Twitter, Jabber or Ubiquity. mite generates flexible reports then. Share them with your customers, print them or export them to a variety of file formats. Get help with staying on budget, and identify any weak spots as soon as possible.
