Chronos
This one is slightly different from the rest. Basically it aims to help you get a better understanding of how you’re spending your days and thereby start to manage your time better. In essence you create a target day and divide your time up into various slots - including home, work, socializing and exercise. The app uses location based data to determine how much of each of type of activity you have undertaken and tracks it. In theory then you can start to plan better and prioritize the things that really matter instead of wasting your time on the things that don’t. In principle this app is fine - the main drawback though is when you work from home. Differentiating being at home and working at home hasn’t been fully developed yet - although is in the pipeline. Chronos is currently available on iOS only.

Daily Routine
This app aims to help you organise every bit of time on your hands - right down to the time that you spend sleeping! It splits each day into time slots which you can fill with routine activities that you ought to be doing then. If you have a ‘typical’ day, you can of course replicate the routine template that you create and use it every day or on certain days of the week. Daily Routine lets you set up alerts and notifications for when new activities ought to be started and thereby helps you stay on track as the day goes on. Once created, you can print out your routines too if you like that whole notion of crossing something off a list manually as it were. Daily Routine currently is available for iOS only and costs $2.99.

Toggl
What makes Toggl unique in our list is the fact that it works on practically every device. It is a web application that has complementary apps available for Windows, iOS, Android as well as Linux. It basically allows you to enter a task or project and the when you start working on that particular project, a ticking clock appears! Some people might find that off-putting but for many more it’s the perfect reminder to keep working! Again reports are available on how you have performed and how productive you have por have not been. Where Toggl is particularly useful is for freelancers who need to carefully monitor the number of hours they spend on a particular task or project. A paid version of the app is available should you wish to track your billable hours for invoicing purposes.
