Timekeeping & Billing App
I'm just starting to do my own consulting on the side, and wanted to know what everyone uses to keep track of their hours on each particular part of a job. I know there was a thread where someone created an app specifically for their handheld that generates an invoice and such... does anyone use/know of/recommend cheap or free apps that are easy to use and functional in this regard?
I use a piece of paper, actually, where I write things down in a table based on who's working on what.

I like the Allnetic Working Time Tracker for keeping tack of my tasks
mark - i just downloaded and tried the Allnetic app... i love it! thanks for pointing me in that direction.
np - I love it too.
I've been contracting/self employed for 17 years, over the years my timekeeping/invoicing/expenses application that I originally developed in Clipper in 1987 has 'morphed' into an VB.NET (Access Backend) extension of my psyche.
I use Track-IT Light http://www.dovico.com/time_and_attendance.html
Mark - the version of Allnetic I tried not only exported to CSV, but it exported to XML, HTML, and tons of other formats. It also prints reports, and can do the reports in HTML and some others. Apparently you can even create your own template and create Invoices, reports, etc.
nathan - sounds like I have to upgrade! Thanks for the tip.
nathan - were you trying the expiring beta version?
mark - yes, i was under the impression the app itself wouldn't expire, just the ability to download. if this isn't the case, that seems kind of silly, since the app is free anyway.
nathan - Yeah, I think they plan on charging for the 2.0 version, which is why it expires. It seems like it may be worth it though if it does everything you say.
