MyTime™ is useful for Jehovah’s Witnesses allowing us to focus on the ministry by keeping organized notes. MyTime™ keeps up with our calls, return visits, literature placements, and field service time so that you don’t have to, allowing you to have a detailed and accurate field service report.

If you find this useful, great! I wrote this for the benefit for all, if you are inclined to help support my efforts and offset the costs of doing development you are welcome to donate.  My cost to maintain MyTime is my invested time as well as a $99.00 yearly license for creating an official application that you could download for free from iTunes, donate if you would like (it is not required or expected):

Next Version 3.8.0 Changes:

Waiting on apple, Submitted to apple 1/30/2016.

  • Fixing the Secretary phone number to allow for a comma to separate phone numbers to allow for multiple phone numbers using the phone keyboard
  • Fixed a bug in the Statistics goals calculation for past months (not the current month)
  • Fixed non-english translations of MyTime to select the proper Magazine publication for the month
  • Added the ability to import contacts into MyTime (You could import most of the call information from Field Service Assistant)
  • Fixed some bugs with deleting rows from calls when not editing
  • Replaced RBC with LDC
  • Fixed placements calculating bug that happened for return visits when you had something that was not considered as a placement, like a video showing

Please note: If you have used a “Video Showing” in your placements then there is a possibility that your “Placements” count will be off.  I have asked for an expedited review for the fix for this.


I am looking for translators to translate the text in the !MyTime™ program into whatever language you need. please email me if you can translate !MyTime™ into any other language

      • view your call in Google maps (by tapping on the address in the call view)
    • “Add Information” so that you can add an email address, phone number, and cell phone number. You can add your own custom fields that are a phone number (that you can dial), a email address (that will open mail), a URL (that will open safari), a multiline notes field, a simple text field, a YES/NO switch, a date or a number. You could use this to make a field for the number of kids that the return visit has or maybe the types of pets that they have, really the sky is the limit here.

      • You can click on the phone number to call or the email address to email your return visit.

  • you can now click on a “pin” in the map and then select the call to go to the call detail

  • OS independent backup system!
