Let me add a seconder to this one! I'm self employed, and find it really hard to keep track of hours worked!
Also, I'm new here, so let me know if any of the below is out of line, or too much information - but here are my thoughts on the matter!
To be honest, in my simple vision I'd wondered about something as simple as a widget that was in itself a button - clicking it toggled between work time and non work time.
Now for me, simplicity is key; for example our friend above suggests 3 buttons (start stop and view). Well, as we know from our music players, play becomes pause, so we have 2 buttons; start/stop and view.
In essence, this is the prime functionality of the program, and ought be at the fore front of it's functionality. So, a start/stop widget would be ideal.
Now, additional functionality that may be of use as I see it could be additional clocks (different categories for timings), and the ability to edit/add information. The two, as I see it, would be combined; when you view the list of the worked times, a long press allows you to edit. Uses for this could be add infomation (work carried out during the time, categorising the time) or editing the start/end times (you forget to turn the timer off in your rush to leave site, for example!). Also, there would be potential to export this information (via share?) for use in spreadsheets or e-mail.
Saying all this, the basic feature, as I said right at the start, would be something that simply logged the 'on' time of an on/off switch/widget!
So, yep, these are my thoughts. Let me know what you reckon!
