Turnip 1.4 is out today, and we think you’ll love it. We’ve added a bunch of new customisation features for how timers work (time rounding, idle notifications, etc.). Also new: you can edit FreshBooks and FreeAgent tags directly in Turnip—no more switching to a web browser!

Coming very soon to a Turnip near you: softer input fields!


The eagle-eyed amongst you may also notice new features like the ability to create new integration tags, along with some new settings to help you control how the timer behaves in Turnip. But today, it’ll all about softening those input fields!

The new version should ship sometime in April. 🚀

There’s something oddly thrilling about the first support request you get for a new product. Finally, someone who isn’t me is using the thing we made! 🤩

….of course, it doesn’t hurt when the feedback is mostly positive. ❤️ Bring it on!
