Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking

No start/stop timers, no forgetting to track time.
Pro Easy time analysis after the fact
once a users day is finished they can go through the history of the app to pick and choose what tasks are worth keeping for time tracking of the day. This makes it easy in the sense that there is no manual tracking needed to be done, everything is recorded and then can be filtered down to the users work tasks.
Pro No Subscription Needed
The app works completely offline - no user data leaves your computer and you don't have to pay some monthly fee.
Pro Open source, native Linux desktop client is being worked on
Source code is available on GitHub.
Pro Integration with existing services

Con Only works on one device, no billing, no syncing and no mobile or web apps
Timing has a pretty limited use for a paid app as it only works on one Mac device. There is no cloud sync to get the schedules synced to another device. There is also no billing built into the app.
Con Mac only
Is only compatible with OSX, so is pretty limiting in that regard.
Con Stable version requires Chrome
The stable version of Toggl on Linux installs as a Chrome app thus Chrome has to be installed on the machine and run (it can be run as a process in the background). A native client is in the works, but it's still in beta.
