Plans - New feature for helping to plan and record what needs doing around your apiaries. Configure a plan by adding hives that will need inspecting or harvesting and then create those records from a single screen while completing it. Plan what equipment you need to take and tick it off when it has been used, automatically updating your hives. Use plans to assign tasks to people by syncing a plan to them, have them complete it and sync it back to you when completed including all relevant hive, inspection data and photos.
Swarm Traps - New section for recording swarm trap locations, equipment used, swarms caught etc.
When adding a new hive, apiary, swarm trap etc the editor loads and highlights the name ready for editing.
Sorting a list now saves sort preference.
To do items now correctly pop up a local notification if you have allowed them.
To do items will now be synced with the devices calendar by default but we have disabled calendar alerts as they are redundant with local notifications providing the alert instead. Please make sure you have allowed notifications to receive them. If you don't want items added to the calendar you can change your preference on the settings screen.

Excellent Apiary recording tool
Been using this for 2 years now and am quite pleased. Developer continues to tweak the app to make improvements. Like the mapping helps keep apiaries separated. I have a horrible memory so this helps keep things straight. It helps keep track of queen linage and I can see which of my queens are marked so I know what to look for. Like the inspection record section. Check boxes for queen, eggs, larva and brood. Also has place for qty of frames of honey, brood, open (drawn comb), and foundation but would like to see how many frame of each type are in each box/super. This is the best app I’ve found for apiary management. Serves most of my needs. I am not affiliated with the developer or anyone else associated with this app as one reviewer suggested. I like it enough to use it as an example of record keeping at my local Beekeeping association.
Very useful, 4 1/2 stars if I could.
I have been using the app for this entire season in my small home apiary of 3 hives. I use it very basically & haven't made use of the financial tracking, ability to add photos, or the QR Hive ID functions yet.
I do use the Inventory & map features as well as the inspection & to do.
Being able to see at a glance the main points of each inspection without having to open the specific inspection record is great.
I also like being able to see (in inventory) which hives are using a piece of equipment. You can also see the equipment being used in a specific hive in the hive view, so there is no need to switch to another screen in order to see that.
I had an instance where I was unsure how to use the app for a situation in my apiary, and contacted the developer. The response was quick, helpful, and specific to my question. It was a perfect solution.
Overall very pleased with this app! The half star I left off is just for little things. For example, I would like to see an option in the To Do list for showing the item completed instead of only being able to delete it when it has been done. (maybe check box or line through & the number of to do items adjusted accordingly. Maybe the option to move it to the inspection record that it was completed during.) But I am sure it is much easier to want than it is for the dev to actually make it happen! :)
Useful and easy tool, one suggestion.
I only have three hives, so record keeping is quite simple as it is. Therefore, I do not use or need all of the features this app appears to offer. The app makes it simple and fun to record what I did, when I did it, and the condition of the hive. I especially like the photo adding features. Works well on an iPad.
I would like to use the easy frame counting feature (how many have larva, capped, honey, pollen, etc.) while working the hive, but it’s too hard to use my iPad while holding frames. I skip that part and just record what remember after I’m done. Obviously a helper is necessary, but adding really large buttons for toggling the numbers up or down would help. Or, perhaps a way to make an audio recording which can later be transcribed into the log.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
