Any chance there will be any updates to this app?
(2017) Just wanted to note that I am still using this app, I still love it, and I don't know what I'll do if you ever stop supporting it. (2013)The new, plain, background is much appreciated as is the ability to print. Keep up the good work!
Everything is great but after the update I can't find the archive button! I use it a lot as my family breeds and sells horses and if I can't archive them they get in the way!! Would of been 5 star...
I haven’t found anything better. It’s definitely helped me get organized with the equestrian records. (Most horse folks have other animals) Wish it allowed to add a dog. Also wish there was a web/ computer interface if I was at the office and wanted to update. Phone screen is so small.
The reason I got this app even after some bad reviews was because it used to be good before update and there other products have a good rating. I have to say it is a nice idea but it works poor. Not at all worth the money. The first few entries it worked like a charm but after 5 or so it gives you error messages when you save. It still does save some but not always and not always correct. Come on people FIX this already and you have a great app. Also missing worming records.
I used to like this app, but the new interface is impossible to use. They don't even list common deworming drugs for preventative medicine. Don't buy this app it's a waste of money.
Doesn't work! Endless errors and will not save any information. Waste of money.
This app was working for awhile and relatively easy to use; however, when I try to open app it crashes. I am unable to use it.
The sync feature reminds me of apps from the 80's. It would be much more useful if it used iCloud for sync. A web interface would be nice as well.
I love being able to enter records in the field while my vet is there to ask questions! (My vet said he'll check out the app to recommend to his clients.). On the wish list is a special slot for deworming, since it's done so often.
This app was fantastic at first, and I used it for two years. When I decided to put it on my new iPad and sync the account, however, it completely wiped the memory on my iPhone. I lost 2 years of records and documentation photographs... Which was particularly disappointing, since these records included a very detailed chronicle of my mare's suspensory injury and recovery. Not at all happy! I want my money back.
I like this but it has issues. It rotates photos, problems syncing, and sometimes it doesn't put the info in the field after entering it. Needs an update.
We have over 40 horses. This is a marvelous app to keep track of everything. Easy to use, lots of reminders. Excellent customer service if you have a problem!!!
I use this app daily. Get for keeping track of multiple horses: breeding info, custom notes on registration and markings, add your own pictures to any entry, vet visits, worming, med schedules, and on and on! I love the new interface; pretty and easy to use makes for a nicer experience and more use. I've tried horse keeper and horses on hand and just couldn't use them consistently. ES Records is much more polished and user friendly.
This is a SUPER app! Very easy to use and very thorough. Sends reminders when farrier, vet, etc... appts are due, plenty of opportunity to add comments, etc... Recent update raised this to 5 stars for me, with the WiFi sync, which is very easy to use to sync your records between iPhone & iPad, etc.... Kudos to developers for such a fine app!
Really wanted to like this app. I only have one horse to keep track of but find that I don't record things consistently and thought this would be the perfect place. I am also a runner and have an app for logging my runs. That is what inspired me to purchase this app. Although the ruining log was free. But like others say its totally confusing and unintuitive. Would be great to have a calendar in app that would allow you to input dates; worming, shots, starts of a supplement, training. Each could have a color code so when looking at calendar as a month you could see what you were looking for. In preventative medicine there is a thing that says add administration and I've looked everywhere for where or how to do that and have not been successful. I would not recommend. Although its possible others may have greater success and understanding of how to utilize what should be a fantastic app.
This app is great for any horse owner. It is even better if you have a schedule of lessons or run a barn. Gives everything about the horses basic identification and needs, lineage, to the rider, to reminding you about farrier visits, etc. I would suggest this app to people working with multiple horses and/or horse people!!
I love the idea of this app but it has some bugs. It won't let me add any more horses besides the first one and when you have 30 it makes this app useless.
I love this app I have had no problems with it. It really helps me with my book for 4-h. I like to keep records on everything and this helps LOADS! I used to have to carry a 20 pound book of papers around for each horse I have, now I just take my iPad with me which I already did anyway! LOVE IT !!!!!!
This app is a good start, but it definitely needs some additional options and categories. If you're thinking of buying, I would wait until it gets better or a better app is available. Most annoying is the fact that you cannot sync ipad and iphone. Let's say you forgot to bring the ipad to the barn and have an emergency or Vet appointment. You enter info, Medical instructions, training info or whatever and then have to manually re-enter the SAME info into the app on a different device so that all files match. UGH! There are a few bugs. When you add a picture it will delete all of the horse info for that file. That got a little annoying since I had 8 animals to enter. It would be nice to be able to customize colors, background and categories needed. It is a little hard to read the white lettering. Maybe multiple pics for a medical entry. We have cameras on everything now, so I find that I am documenting injuries and progress with pics. Training should be its own page with a button at the bottom. On the medical records section the entry is not consistent. If you want to put in older history for medications, some of the fields allow the year with the scroll function. Other medical input areas only allow a monthly scroll so you have to go back scrolling month by month of each year. That takes FOREVER put in data. I am hoping app this will continue to improve. Not being able to sync ....are you kidding? Not worth the price. I am going back to paper records. Will check back for much needed improvements
I was hoping this could take the place of my old Pony Club record book, but there are still a few things that could be changed. I'd like to have more control over the nutrition and medications section, being able to show a completely customized feed and deworming schedule as well as keeping information on supplements. I'd also like a function that would allow you to keep a list of contacts. Otherwise, it's great that I have this info at my fingertips instead of needing to rummage through the barn office. This is the best horse management app so far, though.
I don't know why some reviews have felt that this is not user friendly. It may not be perfect for them, but I think it is user friendly. I like being able to go to utilities and select several horses to add info. Example: everybody had annual shots, teeth float, etc. I like being able to insert breeding information, this mare was bred this day at this time to this stud, etc. There is a Coggins slot. Maybe it was missing initially but definitely there now! I like being to backup the info, email it to myself or vet. Just a really good app. I love it and will definitely continue to use and recommend.
I purchased hoping to keep track of info for my three horses. Initially I did enter some info, but it was so tedious trying to navigate the program that I quickly gave up. I think I've owned the app for about 9 months and I try to use it again at each point release. They just keep piling stuff in to the same lousy interface. Just this latest version can you change from the annoying fence background to one of two other choices: a less annoying grass or plain black. Still no option to use a picture of my own. The whole thing is just a mess with no way to simply long at the history of your horse(s) history as a simple timeline like a diary. Each type of record is its own list you have to look as separately I doubt it'll ever be what I was looking for, so I'm writing this review and deleting it from my iPad.
I love having an app to organize all my horse info and upcoming needs...however I would agree with the other reviews that this app is very confusing to use. Not really user friendly. For example, I wish I could see not just my latest farrier entry, but the previous entries as well. I also feel like I have to enter the information in numerous spots for the app to be effective. I would love some updates! Thanks!
It's a very nice app but you all could Really make things a Lot easier. It gets kind of complicated. Like you have to go into utilities to make a reminder instead of just doing it in your horses section and just going into the correct section from there. The selecting a horse sometimes doesn't work. The add information parts like "Add Farrier Work" never works, none of the "Add" buttons do. And the preventative medication and preventative administration gets Very confusing. There isn't any place for worming either. That would be in the preventative medication but it's too complicated to input it. A coggins slot would be really nice! I Love the breeding and lineage section. I love the overall app but just simple things you could change to make it less complicated and more convenient.
Really liked this program but it has a few technical glitches. Images not automatically setting right, farrier frequencies saving, etc.
A decent start, but needs more details for farrier, vaccinations, etc.
I really love all the possible options with the app! The only thing it seems to be missing still is a coggins slot. The only place I've been able to put it is under medical notes. Other than that I think it's great!!!
Great way to keep all of my records at my fingertips! Love the app!!
It has taken sometime but this app is amazing. I have several horses and no matter how hard I try to keep them all on the same schedule it's not always possible. Being a busy working horse owner it is hard to keep track of the horses sometimes. This app allows me to go about my day not having to constantly worry if I forgot to meet someone at the barn. Our horses are very important to us and this app helps to organize all critical information. Can't wait to see what else you bring to the equine app world. Thank you!!!!
I travel every week and this app let's me easily keep track of my two horses, appointments, and events.
This is a wonderful app! There's no better way to keep track of all of my horse records. It's amazing just how much information it holds and how well it is organized. It's really nice to have all of the info, on all of my horses, on me all at all times. I highly recommend it to every horse owner out there!
