If you want to keep track of your time based on your ical todo list and possibly invoice the elements then Minco is exactly what you need. It takes Billings and simplifies it A LOT. It’s not nearly as robust as Billings by any stretch of the imagination, but most people might not need something that powerful.
Minco puts a timer application in your menu bar, then lets you click to start it. Pretty simple. It integrates seamlessly with iCal in that it gets your due dates, your priority information and then displays them to you so you can better prioritize your work. If you toss Things (Things lets you sync your todo with iCal) into this mix you could quite possibly have a pretty powerful GTD system.
It will save out the information into a csv file so that you can import it into a a variety of applications that have csv support. If I could find a way to marry this sucker to Billings I’d be a happy happy man. Being able to turn my todos into actionable items that I can bill for–seamlessly–I’d make my life a lot easier.
If you think this might be for you, you can check out the Minco site and download a trial. On that note, I’m going to spend some time trying to figure out how to get this information into Billings. If I come up with anything I’ll post an update.
