Ratings and Reviews
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! :)
Neat but could be better
My primary use is to record information from inspections and all other actions taken in the apiary. Inspections and other activities take many forms. For example sometimes an inspection is thorough and lengthy and includes actually putting eyeballs on the queen. Other times it’s a quickie where the observation of freshly laid eggs is taken as suitable evidence the hive is queen right.
The app is such that the icon indicating presence of the queen defaults to red (no queen) unless I select that the queen was actually found. That indicator should remain neutral (no color) ie unkown UNLESS I actually make a selection from the three choices offered.
I would also rename and change the inspections functionality to something more general such as Hive Inspections/Activities. For example if all I want to record is what I did and when (such as feeding or treating with FA or OA for VM) I should be able to do that quickly and easily without having to launch a full fledged inspection.
