Manifest 1.0

I'm proud to announce that Manifest is now available on the App Store. It's free to download and try, so go grab a copy now! I'm proud of how the app turned out, and there's a lot more to come in future updates.

Here's an overview of a few of my favorite features:

Notification Center Widget

Tracking time is, almost by definition, something you do while in the midst of other tasks. To make that easy, Manifest has a widget that you can install in the Today view of iOS's Notification Center. (Tap the Edit button at the bottom of the Today view to add Manifest.) You'll see a list of today's timers, and you can start and stop them with a simple tap. There's also an Add Timer button that will launch Manifest so you can set up a new timer.

Quick Timers

I often use the same project and task combinations over and over again. For example, while working on Manifest, I had a project named "Manifest" and a task named "Design." Rather than create a new timer and manually picking the project and task each time, you can use the Quick Timer menu to re-create a past timer. (Look for the lightning bolt icon in the upper left.) It's a small thing, but I find it comes in quite handy.

Round Off Time

Like most people, I round my timers off to a nice whole number – in my case, the nearest 15 minutes. Manifest makes that easy. Just swipe from left to right on any timer to round off. You can also customize the interval that your timers round off to on the Settings screen.

There's also a single, one-time $4.99 in-app purchase to unlock pro features, which includes unlimited projects and tasks, as well as unlimited data import from a CSV file.
