SamTime is an Android app that keeps track of your appointments either by using a start/stop button or by Bluetooth connections to your car kit. It automatically selects a contact when it detects a contact address is near and adds the appointment to a Google Calendar. This gives you a minute-to-minute detailed view of where you've been. This can be extremely helpful if you're a freelancer or hourly worker or if you're just interested in where you've spend your day.
Best of all, SamTime is free and available in the Google Play Store.
Specially developed for
Let's take a normal (work-) day while having the Samtime app installed on our phone.
At the end of the day, you will have all your tracked appointments in your Google Calendar and in the Samtime app.
You know exactly where you've been and what you've done.
All tracked data contains the contact's (company) name, the start/stop time, duration, a call-out charge and indication how much urnover you've generated based on your hourly-rate.
I service computers and computer networks on-site and visit multiple clients daily. Before SamTime I had to write down all the arrival and departure times. Now with the Samtime app, I never have to write down anything. The app tracks all of my appointments automatically. So at the end of the day I know exactly what I've done. This makes invoicing supereasy!
SamTime keeps everything private on your phone. We hate all those privacy violating apps just like you do. Your data and whereabouts are kept safely on your phone only. There is no communication to any server what so ever. We place the Google Calendar events on your phone locally. If you sync your Google Calendar with the cloud these events are also synced, but are like normal appointments and do not contain any GPS data.
SamTime is our gift to people with time tracking needs all over the world. It will remain free forever and there are no limitations what-so-ever and does not contain any advertisements. Your personal information and appointment data is never communicated to any server. This means we do not track your whereabouts and will not sell your information to third parties.
In the near future we'll create a webservice that enables other apps to use your tracked appointments through the SamTime API. This optional feature will be available for a monthly fee and allow you to use the appointment data within other programs. Billing and invoicing tools for instance.
