Heres a screenshot of my Chrome usage. While this is just for this week this kind of inaccuracy is present across all weeks
As you can see even from this short list of websites the # of hours of Chrome usage (8 hrs) has >20% error. Adding up the website hours, comes down to >10 hrs. The error is underpresented here, because this particular screenshot only shows the top 10 “applications/documents”.
I am guess the actual error maybe >50%. This kind of error is probably present in all the other applications as well.
Thanks for suggestion for ManicTime. I actually used that for 5 years before. I thought maybe the technology of time tracking has progressed enough that maybe it would be possible to track time on all my devices. I have 2 laptops,1 desktop, 2 phone, so I thought rescuetime might be able to comprehensively track the time from different devices.
I am not sure whether this is due to some setting on my computers/phones or if its because RescueTime is inherently inaccurate.
Do you have any suggestion for a good time tracking app for android?
Although I do have another iOS phone, i dont use it much, so even if I dont track its usage thats fine. The error that it introduces in any usage estimation is probably going to be small.
