What can you use the app for?

Tick provides businesses with a simple way to monitor their hours. There are many ways to do this, but few are easy. Logging hours with a spreadsheet is far from elegant while some applications provide too much information at once. With Tick, the user can quickly add information and get the details they need to run their business effectively without losing money on time. Tick presents only the bare bones minimum that the user needs to make decisions and stay up to date on their hours. Along with simple informational menus and reports, Tick also provides sleek status bars so the user can see at a glance how much time is used and how much remains.
