TimeTiger is a time and project tracking app developed by Indigo Technologies Ltd. in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Indigo was founded in 1997 and initially released TimeTiger in 1998.

[1] TimeTiger (internally called TaskMaster) was developed as a tool to help with Indigo's own project planning and estimating. [2] After releasing TimeTiger as a commercial product in 1998, Indigo shifted its focus to time and project management solutions.
