BeeCount is designed for counting multiple parts of multiple knitting projects. Originally, I wrote it as a training exercise for learning Android programming, but as it has proven useful to some people (thanks, Ravelry testers!) I released it here. It has since been extensively re-written to improve both the UI and the data handling.

BeeCount can store multiple knitting projects. 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 after creation.

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. Counts may also have multiple alerts.

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:

    I love that you can customize each counter to fit the project. So, just got the update, and found that now I can customize the background...just when I thought the app couldn't get any better!

    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 better with each update.

    It's really handy. Wouldn't knit lace without it

    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 :-)

    I recently had some trouble with the linking feature. I emailed the developer and they were amazingly fast at getting back to me and figuring out the problem. I needed a good android stitch counter as I am leaving my iphone and this app is perfect! Does exactly what I need and it's fairly simple to learn how to use.

    I love this app! The only reason it's not getting 5 stars is that background pic. Sometimes, it's hard to read the small print because of the pic. I would like the option to change it or even choose between it and a solid color. I have no idea how hard that would be to code, though, so maybe I'm asking for a lot. Anyway, the app works flawlessly on my HTC One X. Great app! Edit: Here's your 5th
