Time recording on your cellphone

I’m a consultant – so I need to account for my time. Now my colleagues will likely remind me of just how bad I am at getting my timesheets in on time – but I do record my time pretty well.

I have a J2ME/MIDP 2.0 capable cellphone Sony Ericsson k610i- nothing too special, though I’m increasingly impressed with the phone. In addition to a bluetooth streaming headset for my MP3s and bluetooth syncing of my Outlook data as part of my GTD “system”, I’m evaluating a midlet called J2ME TimeLog for recording my time – without the expense of a mobile PDA type of setup. Many J2ME type apps in this area manage sending via email for you – annoyingly without the option to configure your SMTP with a username and password. TimeLog however has a file saving option that I use and then send the file to my work email address using my phone’s inbuilt SMTP/POP3 email client.

Timelog also supports bluetooth beaming - though for some reason I haven’t got around to trying this feature yet.
