Siri Shortcuts

Hey Siri, I started working on the website. The 2018.21 update adds Siri support to Tyme. Just tell Siri to start or stop a timer. You can also ask Siri for how many hours you've worked today or the entire week.

Light & Dark Theme

We’ve just released the update 2018.17. Besides smaller bugfixes, Tyme now fully supports the dark mode on macOS 10.14 Mojave and adds a light theme for all that enjoy more brighter colors.

New & Faster Sync

With latest update 2018.12, we've released a brand new iCloud sync. It's up to 10x faster than the previous one. Please make sure, that you update all your devices to the latest version. Due to technical reasons, we can’t bring these improvements to the Dropbox sync, so we’re deprecating it. If you’re using it, you can still sync to Dropbox, but we encourage all users to move to the iCloud sync.

New Menubar Option

Besides smaller bugfixes and better handling of the sync in slow networks, the update 2018.11 brings a new convenient option to the Mac App:

Imagine you’re busy working on a task, but forgot to start the timer. Then you start it, but the start time is obviously wrong. Now there is a new option in the menu bar, which lets you set the start time of the running timer to the end time of the previous timer to close that gap.

iOS Trial & Purchase Options

With the latest update 2018.1 and the release of Team Tyme, we took the opportunity to make it easier for everyone to try Tyme before buying. For macOS we already had a free trial that you could download via our website, but the upgrade process to the full version via the Mac App Store was not very elegant and users were often confused how they migrate their data. For iOS this was not even possible until today.

That’s why Tyme is now available on all platforms as a free download. When you start the app, you have four options:

  • Try Tyme for free for 2 weeks
  • Purchase the single user version
  • Subscribe to Team Tyme
  • Login into an existing team

When the trial expires and you didn’t purchase Tyme or are member of a team, Tyme runs in a read-only mode. So you still have access to your data and can view and export it, but you are not able to create new projects or time entries.

Team Tyme

We’re happy to announce, that the release of Team Tyme is very close. Expect it do be in the app stores within the next weeks.

Right now, we’re polishing the last bits and pieces and the beta test is nearly finished. We’ll keep you posted.

Tyme 1 & High Sierra

When we released Tyme 2 in February 2016, we also discontinued Tyme 1. But we also made sure that it still works on macOS Sierra by pushing a last update. Now with the release of High Sierra, we can not guarantee that Tyme 1 still works.

TL;DR: Tyme 1 is not fully compatible with High Sierra. Tyme 2 is of course fully compatible.

If you’re affected by this issue and Tyme 1 is crashing upon startup, you can still transfer your data to Tyme 2 by following these steps:

  • Please download the SQLLiteBrowser: http://sqlitebrowser.org
  • Open the Tyme 1 database in this folder: ~/Library/Containers/de.nulldesign.tyme.osx/Data/Library/Application Support/de.nulldesign.tyme/
  • Close SQLLiteBrowser
  • You now should have only one file in that folder: Tyme.storedata (SQLLiteBrowser reduces the three database files into one)
  • Open Tyme 2 and import the file Tyme.storedata

If Tyme 2 complains that the file isn’t a proper Tyme 1 backup file, don’t worry, everything is fixable. Follow these steps to repair it:

  • Open the Tyme 1 database again
  • Select File > Export > SQL and save the file
  • Click “New Database” and give it a filename
  • Select File > Import > SQL and select the previous saved SQL file
  • Save and then rename the file extension to .storedata
  • Import it in Tyme 2
