ManicTime for Mac OS
As a big supporter of Manictime I have now started to work with Apple computers.
ManicTime for mac is extremely desirable as there are several consultants that I know of that wishes a similar tool for Mac.
They can tag via web browser UI.
On web server you can find this under Personal, Day view. For example on our demo server this would be here.
We have this feature disabled on our demo server, but you can use it when you setup your own server.
Holy Moly, how can you *not* tag time in the Mac version? We were just on the verge of purchasing 40 licenses, but if our Mac users can't even do something as simple as tag their own time then the entire purpose of the app is moot.
As it seems from the level of development, not much has been done for mac-only users which is unfortunate but may be a matter of priority for the developer. Please consider building a full client for Mac users.

I would love to see a full Mac OS client, but in lieu of that just being able to efficiently view the timeline and tag things in the server (like in the client) would do. At the moment I can see a list in the timeline, but I can't (a) multi-select/range-select items, or (b) tag them. These two things would be essential to making it usable for tracking my time - which is the whole purpose of the thing.

The only thing that stops me from buying the upgrades is having screenshot capability on MacOS.
It works on a Mac. More about how it works is written here
So, if I understand this, it doesn't really run on the Mac, as you need to run the .msi on a PC somewhere?
Just switched from PC to Mac. Purchased ManicTime license 2 months ago. Really disappointed to see that I can't even use the software anymore...given that I need to run a Windows server....just to view my data from my Mac.
Doesn't really make sense. Please fix this.
I used to use ManicTime every day. I happily paid for it. But then it just made more sense to switch to a mac laptop.......I still miss it.
As far as I know the client is Java based so a full client port should not be too difficult if proven to be economical? And if the Android vs iOS trends are any indication then Apple users are more willing to pay for quality software.

Yes please, make the connection process to server seamless on mac too please.
my partner uses it on his pc. i wish they had a mac version.
Hi, I love ManicTime and used it for years on windows machine. Now I'm using mac and would like to keep using it. All I really need to do is track what was done when for personal use. It would be great if there was a stand alone app for Mac.
Hi, you can't use free version, it requires a license.
Can we use ManicTime Mac with the free version? It says it requires server version, and I think there is no free version of the server, no?

Manictime is all about standalone and desktop as for me and so is this feature request.
There are a bunch of cloud alternatives and I found them hard to use.
Tracker statistics shouldn't be on the page somewhere in the browser. It should be always visible and processable on the desktop.
I hope we get to a cloud version soon, then you wont have to host anything. And I think the server will also work on Linux and Mac soon. We will see.
Of course another possibility is to expand the Mac client with UI so it is a stand alone version, which, if I understand you correctly, is what you would like to see.
In any case, this feature is too general. If we start working on this today, we would have to know which features are most desired. I guess tagging is a start. I'd personally add timesheets.
What I want to say is that we can't port all features and then close this issue. So it would be good to have a list of most desired features and votes for that.

Really done? With the need of win host to function? You are kidding. It doesn't close this top feature request as for me.
For now its done, v1.2 is on the site.
I should probably close it, and then a new suggestion can be entered for UI.
