Smiley Cat Software has released HoneyBees! 1.0 for iPhone and iPod touch. Honeybees! is a fascinating educational journey into the world of honeybees and beekeeping. It teaches you about all aspects of honeybees including pollination, beekeeping and the biology of honeybees.
Using beautiful photographs, you will experience how bees live, and how they work together to raise their young, take care of each other and collect pollen and make honey. Whether you are a student, beekeeper, aspiring beekeeper, gardener, homeowner or simply anyone interested in these fascinating insects; you will find this app entertaining and educational.
The ‘beekeeper’s diary’ section chronicles the work of the beekeeper as the hives are cared for. Follow the beekeeper from January when the bees are first checked, through the spring as the bees start increasing their colony size and venturing forth to gather nectar and pollen. Updates to the app will include updates to the diary as the year progresses.
