Intended to improve your productivity, but will actually decrease it

Pros: Beautiful interface in some screens.

Cons: Everything else.

Overall: This program has a very nice price, and you get what you pay for. Its quality is absolutely dismal.

I checked the trial version before purchasing it, and I got a very misleading positive impression. The interface seems nice and intuitive, and there are many features intended to keep track of your time usage in different ways. However, the trial version only provides basic functionality. In order to track your time efficiently you need to automate repetitive tasks, and the automation features (like automatic tagging) are only available in the full version. When you purchase the full featured version and start using the automation features ManicTime drops its beautiful princess mask and reveals itself as the ugly nine headed monster it really is.

The documentation is absolutely chaotic. Most of it is obsolete, doesn¿t make sense or both things at the same time.

The program is full of bugs. They create versions intended to fix those bugs and add new features regularly, but, after almost a year of use, my experience is that every new version introduces more bugs than it fixes. And it takes them months to fix just the most obvious and annoying bugs. Some examples:
¿ Some reports report nothing at all, like the usage details in the timesheet.
¿ About six months ago they introduced a screenshots feature. The idea is good, but the feature is full of bugs, from errors in the display to straight away crashes. Last month they released a fix for this. The result is that now the screenshots screen just doesn¿t display any screenshots at all.
¿ There is a feature to remind you to log your time when you¿re away from your computer for a while. Great feature¿ if it worked. Half of the time, the reminder to log your away time just pops up randomly, regardless of whether you¿ve been away from the computer or not.

The list goes on, but you get the picture. The bottom line: A program that is intended to improve your productivity, but will actually decrease it.

Recommendations to other buyers: Just avoid it.

Pros: I can just work without interruptions and assign my work hours when I'm ready.

Cons: I miss an iPhone app.

Overall: A must have tool for a freelancer like myself. Tracking work hours for a day takes me seconds and I know that work hours are accurate. Creating a timesheet is also a breeze.
