Buildwatch for Xcode


What is Buildwatch?

Buildwatch is a macOS menu bar utility for developers using Xcode that tracks, graphs, and analyzes how much of their time is spent compiling so they can build apps more efficiently.

Here’s how we pitch it to developers:

Have you ever wondered how much of your day is wasted waiting for Xcode to compile? Buildwatch is a menu bar app that lets you keep an eye on your compile times throughout the day. With a glance, you can see how much time you spent building in Xcode today and how many times you've built your apps.

Clicking the watch icon in your menu bar reveals a graph that breaks down your hour, day, or week by how much time you've spent compiling your projects. Hover over any segment for a deeper look at the data behind it.

Opening the "More info" window gives you even more control to break down your stats by totals, averages, and schemes. Plus, you can inspect your build times for the month, the year, and all time.


Pricing & Availability

Buildwatch will be available on the Mac App Store for $9.99 USD on September 29th at 9 AM ET.
