    I want to win Fanurio because I’m still using MS Excel for invoicing and time tracking while freelancing. I find this way to manage my time and billing tracking to be very tedious, wasting time, inaccurate and inefficient. Fanurio is just what i need!

    I’m always looking to improve ways to track time. Currently I’m using Toggl desktop it’s great because it viewable online, on my desktop and even on my iPhone but I have lost countless number of hours in which I couldn’t prove to my clients. I’m not sure how, but between my iPhone and my desktop app it some how ‘managed’ to loose my hours. I need a better solution and haven’t found one to replace it yet.

    Looks like a great software program I’d love to have – and most definately need! I currently use a notepad and pen…and generally forget to write times down and therefore end up with zero billable items!

    I’m a freelance designer with no way of keeping track of time on projects and don’t have the money to buy software outright.
    I would love to win a copy of this program.

    Wow, this looks like exactly what I’ve been looking for. Switching back and forth from jobs while waiting for approvals, etc definitely clouds my ability to judge how much time is spent on each project, this would make the hourly design time clear-cut, not to mention making my life so much easier. Having invoicing already built is a dream feature.

    Yay I’m #1. Besides that I would like to win this to analyze and compare project completion times so I can spend less time geeking out in Excel and more time geeking out in creative applications.

    Can I get a ‘hell yeah’ threaded comment style? Best of luck to everybody else.

    I am a freelancer and find it very difficult to track time spent on each project. I have tried few time tracking softwares, but not happy with those. And they are expensive too. So maybe a free license of Fanurio would be great ;-p

    Very informative post, I would like to win because I’m just really getting started in freelance work and it is a chore to keep track of my time. When I get really motivated on a project I look up and it been 6 hours….. seems like 1. This would be a great help.

    Wow, what an amazing blessing! I would love to win this software because it seems to be the missing piece for me to make my freelance dream a reality. I didn’t even know this software existed! I’ve been paralyzed by fear to listen to my heart and quit my 9-5 to follow my freelancing dream BECAUSE I am not business savvy and fear I will drown in my lowsy attempt to organize paperwork, track time, ect ~ everything you listed as an ammenity of Fanurio! I’m so excited to have found this!

    I use two separate computers – my macbook pro and my PC desktop – would love a time tracking system that is as simple as this program HOWEVER I don’t like that the data is not saved remotely – because I don’t want to import the time each time I switch.

    I really don’t like Harvest since their little widget is completely non-flexible and you need to use their website to manage it.

    I wish that Fanurio or my favorite Inertrak would have a full featured desktop app that would sync using some sort of Evernote type platform.

    My comment on this post is that I appreciated the testimonials page – I found them believable.

    I want to win the contest because I have just launched my freelance indexing business and it’s the perfect time to begin tracking my time. I know the best indexers track their time in some manner, and as I would like to join their ranks, I wish to emulate their techniques. If I won I would feature an article about the software on my website and post about it on the indexing forums – I belong to just about all of them. I believe I could influence a lot of my peers should I win and find the product as good as I suspect it must be. So, I want to win not only to bring my business to the next level but to be of use in promoting the product. I really like marketing and I think it would be fun to help make this product a success.

    Well I may want it, but with me it’s a clear need. I’ve been unemployed for the past few years while raising my son, now 5, as a single mother. I used to work as a web designer but the technology field and web team roles & expectations have changed so much in the corporate world since I left to have my son that it’s been near impossible for me to return to that field/role where I left it.

    So in order to stay home with my son these early years he so needs it–and even as he goes off to Kindergarten this fall–I’ve been trying to survive on my graphic/web design skills and writing/editing abilities as a freelancer. The way ideas come to me, combined with my flexibility allows me to jump up in the middle of the night and start to churn out creative work, and having a laptop and wifi enable me to skip a bit erratically from errands to designing a logo, to doing laundry, to sending a mid-project review email with graphic mockups attached to a client, to picking up my son . . . etc., BUT, I’ve realized that you can’t be that way with billing, scheduling, marketing yourself, and deliverables.
    Time management has not been one of my strong suits and now that is killing me as I’ve tried to keep track of my time worked but know a great many minutes are going unaccounted for as I misplaced(/threw out?) the envelope back I was using for scribbling project notes and time in/out. (They had a Project Manager for that when I last was employed!) OK, no excuses, but I definitely need HELP!

    I’m a Mac person and I saw this was a multi-platform app. If this can help me account for all my time, AND be a way for keeping everything in one place for my scattered head and directory tree (invoices, project emails, job specs/requirements, related attachments like image files, client contact info, past jobs filed by date for quick referencing on new jobs, etc., then consider me a needy case. My son will thank you as the more organized I can get, the more time I can spend with him. :-)

    My best tool for time tracking currently is the “Guesstimation” utility. Hey, it was compatible with all of my OS’s and programs so I really couldn’t go wrong. Easy to use, look at the clock around some point that you started, look at it again before you go to bed and then try to remember what time you did stop working, then “gusstimate” the time you spent working on the project. The only flaw I did find in the tool was the memory leak, it was VERY flaky in storing the guesstimate results overnight until they could be written down on a sticky note. The sticky note is very faulty in storage anyway but that is for another contest.

    I’m actually shopping for a time tracking software to help me start my freelancing career. I have been reading reviews from all over and surprisingly most of them highly recommend Fanurio (which is how I actually stumbled into your blog). I’m (almost) ready to get a license for it, but I’ll first gonna try my luck here if I could win it :D

    Fanurio, I deserve you the most,
    and let me explain why in my post,
    I’ve read all the pleads and sob story spins,
    but I know I am the one who deserves to win.

    I will not mention my unemployment issues,
    nor hard times just breaking out the tissues.

    But I will tell you why I need time tracking software,
    without it would be my freelancing nightmare.

    Multiple methods to track my time,
    should definitely ensure I get SOME bedtime.

    Understanding my business through Powerful time & money reports,
    Soon that means I can afford my own transposrt.

    The joy of Invoicing & emailing my clients using Fanurio’s template customization the free way..

    What can I say….I am ready to rock with Fanurio on
    Wednesday

    This is a great software. I compared many different invoicing program for freelancing works. However, one thing I wish Fanurio has is the ability to customize invoice/estimate form with nice color scheme. Other software let users can design their own forms.
