BeeCount is designed for counting multiple parts of multiple knitting projects. I wrote it as a training exercise for learning Android programming, but as it has proven useful to some people (thanks, Ravelry testers!) I have released it here and hope to refine it in the future.

Each project can have multiple 'counts' and these may be increased, decreased or reset to zero. Projects may be edited to add or remove counts.

Counts can be linked together by editing a project after it has been created, and a count can have more than one link. For example, "rows" could increment two different pattern repeats at different rates. Long pressing a count will call up options for resetting, auto-resetting at a particular value, and for a popup alert.

N.B. if you are using Android 4.0+ then the various options should appear in the action bar across the top of the screen and the hardware menu key doesn't do anything. On earlier versions functions can be accessed by pressing the hardware menu key.

BeeCount on Android will always remain free and without advertisements.

Please e-mail me with any support questions, or contact me on Ravelry. There's now a Ravelry group for discussing the use of this app:

    Does everything you want it to easily, intuitively, and quickly. Not fussy.

    Flexible and easy to use. It's obviously made by someone who knits. Thank you for making it not just free, but ad-free. As far as strictly counting apps go, this is the best on the market and one of the first things I install on a new device.

    Does exactly what I need it to. Love the flexibility to set it up how I like. It has taken some experimentation to learn how to use (which could just be my age!) but the more I learn, the more I like it. I also like that it's a work in progress--it gets

    Love this app and use it for most of my knitting projects. I especially love being able to link the counts when doing increasing and decreasing sections :-)
