I used the web-app every day for more than 2 years. I used it to write my daily and monthly reports and to answer questions about when I did things in the past. Using it was a joy - the UI was intuitive, responsive, and information-rich without being cluttered. And I could only use the web app (no installation privileges). I suspect the experience is even better for those using the desktop app. Unfortunately, they doubled the price and I couldn't justify the extra cost over the app provided by my employer. But I will miss it every day. See More
The UI hides unnecessary clutter until you need it, but it is not hard to find later. For example, to start a new tracker, rather than having a separate list of favorite/recent tasks you can click on to continue, it has a "play button" triangle pop-up as you hover over each item in your day's agenda. This effectively doubles the screen space in the agenda over competing apps. Another example: the start-end date picker for choosing a reporting interval. Rather than having two fields you must click on and make sure you put the start date before the end date. It just has one calendar pop up. Then you click the start date first and the end date second. (One quibble: Monday is always the first day of the week, which can be jarring if the rest of your software uses Sunday). There are shortcuts at the bottom for frequently used ranges: "this month", "last month", "today," "yesterday", etc. And all of this hides itself in a simple text box until you click on it to edit the time. The interface for modifying times of previous entries is also wonderful. It guesses the right day when I enter a new time 99% of the time. After using Toggl's UI, you will be spoiled for every other tracking app. See More

Toggl offers an API to allow for customization and extension. For example, this allows for an iOS Workflow, that lets the user start and stop timers from anywhere, Workflow is available (Apple Watch Complication, Home Screen Icon, Launch Center Pro, Widget...) This also means, that automatic start and stop of Timers are possible. See More
The entire site needs a serious UI/UX upgrade. Almost every page is cluttered and unfocused - as if designed by an engineer (of which I am one, so I know how I naturally design things). They need someone to split the pages into more focused units that are quicker to scan and use. See More
Lots of features and you can't beat free. However, it was very clunky - requiring many clicks many operations. For example: it has its own to-do list: but this can't touch the functionality I get with my dedicated to-do list app. However that to-do list takes up half of the screen for the agenda view (the one I'll end-up using the most). The resulting graphic design is cluttered and unfocused. I might get used to it if I stayed. Then the reporting is also ugly and cluttered. There is a lot of information on the report page but no way to customize it to just display what I need. Since I need to use the report page every day ... no sale. Additionally the site is slow. There are regularly delays of up to a second after clicking on something before the site responds. Since I frequently need multiple clicks this gets very annoying fast. This is the second app I'm looking at after Toggl, so I might come back if others are worse. But right now, I must say I didn't like this app. See More
The reports are cluttered and hard to scan and turn into usable information. They do have a banner of what the designers thought you'd want to see. But that banner is useless to me and the most important information for me (time use by task and project) is buried in small print and broken by total columns and there is no option to surface it.
