Make your donation now!

I am receiving every day feedback, ideas and comments and I am trying to reply to all. I am glad that this community is so alive, my intention is to make Apiary Book a good tool for beekeepers and keep it free. I am trying to do my best!

But it is time to ask for your help!

If you would like to support this project's further development, feel free to donate.

Your donation will make possible the development of a PC version, data synchronization between different devices using cloud and some other good staff.

Any donation is highly appreciated. Thank you!
