I already found this app which is not really doing what I want, because it is for games and I don't want to see my cpu usage.

I am specifically searching for this app.

I tried to find but I didn't. So if somebody knows it it would be pretty great if not here is what I am searching for:

A software which tracks which programs I use for how long, has a categorizing feature and shows me my usage.

So basically a one which does what was in the video I linked up on "this app".

Trying to find a software just gave me "spyware" and "company monitoring" apps like for a network which not match my criteria.

    Is it? Your answer doesn't show that :) If you think this really answers the question, maybe you edit your answer and show how it does so? How can Eventlog be used to track "which programs I use for how long, has a categorizing feature and shows me my usage"? Answers here must show exactly the proposed solution fits the question. One-liners usually don't ;) // PS: None of the down-votes is mine – but they show I'm not the only one thinking your answer needs some improvements at least. Thanks in advance!
