PROS & CONS
What are the best aspects of this product?
If not for RescueTime, I would still be working on my dissertation. I love that it works very hard in the background and even gives me the option to track what I do off the computer, even if I have to input those activities manually. Best of all, the paid subscription blocks apps and websites that are not useful for productivity.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
I did some of my research on social media because of the nature of my study. Since I set RescueTime to block those sites, I had to unblock them each time I needed to work with them. And when I did, the time I spent researching on social platforms was categorized as unproductive.
What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?
I worked on my dissertation at home and RescueTime helped me focus. I highly recommend this to other graduate-level students who need to direct their attention to their studies and papers. It is a great help even for freelancers and academic professionals. Overall, it is a great tool to have if you spend a lot of time in front of a computer.
