San Francisco, California – Tav Shande today is pleased to announce the release of his new app called CrunchTime. This application enables millions of iPhone and iPod touch users worldwide to set work-life balance goals and gain achievement badges while tracking work hours, health, vacation hours, and more – all while staying connected with family, friends, and colleagues.

“Crunching” or working extremely long hours has become a global epidemic in the workplace. In Japan they call it karoshi and in China it is guolaosi. Workers in the United States are putting in more hours than anyone else in the industrialized world. Currently there is no word in English for working yourself to death, but as more and more people suffer from the stress of longer hours there may soon be one.

CrunchTime for iPhone will open up new ways for more than 42 million iPhone iOS device users to stay connected and set work-life balance goals while tracking their work hours resulting in better knowledge of how their time is really spent and improving their overall quality of life. CrunchTime for iPhone is an experience that offers the same simplicity, ease-of use and quality our users have come to expect from, combined with an elegant design and innovation so loved by Apple’s many customers worldwide.
