Data doesn’t sync
I think the web version is great. I upgraded in order to get the app. However, data does not sync (at least not correctly) between the app and the web version. The Contact link doesn’t work. I found a contact form but no one responded. I don’t think there’s anybody home anymore. Use the free version but don’t buy the app.
I’ve been using this app for a while, and, for the most part, it’s fine for managing a small backyard apiary and keeping notes. And it’s inexpensive, relatively speaking. BUT, speaking as an ex-database designer, there are a couple of awful bugs in this that really need to be fixed. The worst one is that, if you you try to change the Hive a queen is associated with, you can’t do it by editing the Queen record. There’s a drop down for Hive that lets you select another hive, but when you come back in, the record shows it as Hive 1, regardless of which hive you tried to put there. I usually split by moving the queen to a new hive/nuc, so I need to change the hive she’s associated with when I do that. To add insult to injury, you can’t select a queen from the list of queens you’ve already created when you edit the Hive record either. The re-queen action only lets you create a new queen! If I’m re-queening with a queen from another hive or nuc, or one I’ve created through my own queen-rearing efforts, I can’t select it. As well, there is no contact information in the web or iPhone app, so there’s nobody to ask about fixing these bugs.
Works for me
I agree it has much room for development but for what I need with only 100 hives it works. Keeps, track my queens, daughters, date of install, inspections and pictures. Since I am not trying to make it more complicated than it needs to be it work. If you are looking for trending, graphs, scientific comparison though Hive Track would be your best bet. But then your info is part of a networked discoverable data base.
