    Hi everyone [​IMG]

    I am curious to see if anyone has run across an app for incubation and hatching of fowl. I have an andriod and I've looked through the market, but could not find anything like that.

    Oh how I wish I knew how to code.

    hmm..no I haven't, but that is a GREAT idea!

    I use my calender and set up reminder alarms with little notes for me [​IMG] I hatch a lot so I organize my batches by letters on top (A, B, C...etc) then my notes read

    Date: batch B Serama in bator
    date: Batch B serama in lockdown
    Date: batch B serama hatch day

    And I always have the alarms go off at a time of day I know no matter WHAT I will be home ! LOL hate it when the alarm goes off when you are out and you forget all about it by the time you get back to the house [​IMG]

    I think I saw one, called HatchApp. I will look for the link and see if I can find it again.

    Oh do you think there might be such an app for Android? I would love this if I could figure out how to use it...I searched a bit but I can't find anything (but that doesn't mean its not there..I am hopeless with this type of thing Im afraid).

    I have this one https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=au.com.bellsouth.hatchabatch&hl=en but for my iphone. It is also for android and you can set calendar reminders for days 1, 7, 15, 18, a9 & 21 as well as it tells you about the development.

    I found ihatch and it's available in Android and iPhone. Very education. Not intuitive with multiple hatches in parallel but great for kids especially

    iHatch is a great app available for iOS or Android. It counts down the days with a picture and written description of what's happening inside the egg every day. It also reminds you what needs to be done on a certain day, ie candling. I haven't reached hatch yet, but so far it's a fun and useful app!
