Comments: The problem with most time tracking apps is that you need to turn explicitly the timer on and then off and write a comment on what you've been doing. That experience is typically poorly designed and executed, and that's a pain.
LetsFreckle sets up the plank for time tracking software; it's made by the guys who've been doing consulting work for other people doing consulting work and freelancing.
It's design is clear, experience using it is just fantastic.
Pros: Great design and experience. Easy to use. Has chrome / safari extension for easy turning on /off and writing your todos down. Has an iOS and mac apps. Has built in invoicing.
Cons: Might seem expensive at first, but it's totally worth it.

Pros: I loved the opportunity for this product to automatically adjust the reading level for students based on diagnostic tests to help better accommodate students at their own reading levels. I also loved the different options for testing and assigning different articles and giving vocabulary and reading assignments from the ease of one place.
Cons: The worst thing about this is the fact that Freckle does not allow for much use at the high school level. I was really excited about the product when we went to a training only to be disappointed to find out that it doesn't have a diagnostic test or acknowledge reading levels above 8th grade. Doesn't make it very effective to better high school students and their reading levels.
