TimePanter was founded by Jonah Turnquist in 2011. The application was intended to provide users with an easy to use tool that would track time. The founder focused on convenience and accuracy over involved features so the user is encouraged to all the time they spend working rather than losing a few minutes here and there due to inconvenient tracking options. The current version is still rather unknown, although it holds a lot of potential for individual professionals, teams and freelancers.
There are some tools that seem to work very well with applications like TimePanther, so they tend to show up frequently. This is the case with TimePanther, which includes a number of basic tools that are not terribly original, but can be extremely effective for the user. The application is appealing because of the way it makes time tracking and monitoring very convenient. The user can see how they spend their time through reports, start and stop timers with one click and calculate earnings.
