• Get proof of your working hours and bill all the hours you work.
The Desktop App takes screenshots of your work every few minutes so that you can show your employers how hard you’ve been working on the project and get paid for it! Based from a comparison of average freelancer earnings between freelancers who use the Desktop App and those who don’t -- we found out that from June to November 2014, app users earn an average of 152% more than those who don’t use the app. That’s huge!
