I've checked out this question, but it refers to something a little different.

I would like an OS X app that is like a stopwatch with multiple timers. So if I have five different project and I start working on project "A" I can start that clock and then stop it and start the project "B" clock, etc.

The reason I want this is so that I can get a more accurate sense of how I spend my time throughout the day. My ambition is to use this knowledge to increase my productivity.

An iPhone app would also be an option.

iBiz and Billings are both OS X apps that do time tracking all the way through to billing and invoicing, so they might be a bit heavy if you just want a simple app just to track time.

If you're doing freelancing work though, they're probably perfect.

After investigating several I settled on Harvest.

For the longest time, I used Toggl ( for tracking time spent working on small projects.

I looked through about 10 of them and I though this was the best. The others were either missing something or were overly complex. You just hit start for the task and you end up with a summary by day, week, or month.
