our lemon mission

We want to change how people perceive time tracking:

It should make you and your team more productive while still being fun!

That’s why we have designed and built a time tracker that is easy and intuitive to use, so fast that you don’t even notice it is a web application.
It lets you get back to your actual work quickly instead of having you mess around with notes on paper or spreadsheets.

Data can not only be fun but also productive: We want to help you and your team make better, well informed decisions: Where you allocate your time, what you prioritize and how to get back on track in case you wandered off.

That is why with lemon we will focus on the core and the core only: time tracking.
No project management, no todo lists, no client management – just plain, focused, straight forward time tracking.

So that tracking time with lemon will indeed taste sweet!
