Small Town Software has released a new app for iCal users called Time and Budgets. Time and Budgets is a utility designed for turning iCal into a time and billing resource. The app effectively turns the schedule information into cash based client scheduler for project billing. According to Small Town Software:
Design professionals, lawyers, consultants--any Mac user who bills clients for their time--will enjoy the way Small Town Softwareis new Time and Budgets application enables them to use Apple iCal as a time and billing tool.
Time and Budgets real strength lies in how it collects time data from industry standard WebDAV data sources, and then converts that data into useful information. Fans of Appleis free calendar program titled iCal can seamlessly convert their appointment schedule to dollars and cents. Any calendar program that supports the WebDAV format (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) will work with Time and Budgets, though for seamless data input a WebDAV server is required (enter Appleis .Mac program).
You can find more information about Time and Budgets at the Small Town Software Web site. Time and Budgets is available for US$15.00 for a single user license.
