Multiple Timers

Cactus Timer lets you create an unlimited amount of timers and any number of them can be active at once. This makes tracking time across projects and tasks insanely simple.

Timer Archive

Any timer in the list can be archived. Once archived, timers are shown in the Timer Archive. Here you see a list of previous projects and tasks that can be referenced at any point.

Project Management

Timers can now be assigned a project, this makes tracking multiple timed tasks in a single project easier than ever. From the Projects screen, you can get an overview of all your current projects and how much time has been tracked for each. There's also a graph for a quick visual overview of how you're spending your time.

Light At Heart

Cactus Timer was developed by Cleverbones and is a lightweight application that doesn't require an installer to run. It was developed internally as a tool used to track time on freelance projects and has been in active development and use since 2018.
