Re: Free Beekeeping Software
just a quick review.
I installed into a linux computer, the app runs great in wine.
this is very good app for the 'typical' beek using Langstroth type equipment and methodology.
myself using mostly tbh coming in to this spring and forward, and not being so focused on honey production, I don't see myself getting a lot of use from it overall, although in general it could be usable anyway.
EDIT: After playing around with this app some more, I realize just how flexible it is. definitely able to be used for more than just langs and honey production and I apologize to Jorg for having missed the editing aspects of the app. As a matter of fact, iwill be givin gthis an extended test along with my paper documentation as well.
I will play with it a bit more as there is some customizing that can be done.
the use of metric measurement doesn't bode well for my usage either.
The ability to understand the scale of determining the various observations such as bee steadiness, sickness, etc.. isn't apparent in the app itself, you MUST keep the manual at your side till you gt familiar with the app.
Ability to run on OS other than Windows ( using Wine) - B
Use for general bee yard and general inspections -B
Use for Langstroth style hive - A
Queen tracking- A
Use with other style hives- B
Use for purpose other than honey production - C
Overall - B+
Very Good work overall, thanks for making it available to folks.

No, I am NOT a bee "Keeper". Anything I post is just my opinion. Take it easy and think for yourself.
