Time logger for Jira
Time logger for Jira is time tracking JIRA addon which helps track time spent on Jira issues. It's a standalone Microsoft Windows desktop application which connects to Jira.
Main advantage is that addon automatically gets the issue you work with in your browser and allows you to easily track time used on the issue using start, pause and stop buttons.
During tracking it detects idle time which is not possible when using addons integrated into Jira itself.
