I’ve made a small Windows* tool to make time-tracking with Jira much easier IMHO.

The use-case goes like this:
At work I’m usually working on up to 5 issues at a time – sometimes an issue is waiting for input from somebody temporarily away. Sometimes I need to prioritise a new issue above others. So I need to be able to quickly switch between issues – and still make sure to track how long I’ve totally worked on each issue.
So if you’re interested, take it for a spin, and let me know if you have any suggestions for improving it.
A short screencast to show the usage:
* It’s OSS C# and also compiles with Mono on Linux – somebody with a Mac care to try?
