New or changed in 2.14.0:

This update brings a big improvement to the Journal, which is now available directly from the bottom tab bar. Notes can be recorded and assigned to the entire flock and allow optional selection of one or more flock members. Find your notes by week, month, or year and apply filters for notes with specific tags or with photos attached.

Other change in this version:

  • Fixes flock and flock member names being cut off on the Leaderboard
  • Changes the color code dot for Individual Egg entries to green to stand out better in Activity

New or changed in 2.13.0:

This update brings a few minor bug fixes, along with a quick way to switch between flocks without having to navigate back to the My Flocks screen. Pressing the flock name will open a menu with your list of active flocks.

Other changes:

  • My Flocks screen now displays the active member count for each flock
  • Displays flock member age in weeks up to 26 weeks
  • Replaces comma with dot in the numeric keyboard for EU region devices

New or changed in 2.12.0:

Version 2.12.0 brings a major change to how flocks are viewed and organized. The concept of a flock is expanded way beyond simply a name for a group of flock members. Now you can add a photo, give it a start date and description, and even indicate whether it is used for egg tracking or not.

  • Added a new My Flocks screen to make it easier and more powerful to utilize the multiple flocks feature. Give your flocks a photo, and some other new attributes like Start Date, and Description. Sort and filter your flock list with the tool bar at the top.
  • You can now indicate whether a flock is used for egg tracking or not. Non-egg tracking flocks do not appear in the various dropdowns or lists related to egg tracking.
  • Flocks can now be archived. Archived flocks will be hidden all through the app, but are available to unarchive at any time.
  • The orange “Action Button” in the bottom right corner is now aware of which screen you are using and only presents menu items that are applicable to the current screen.
  • The Egg Log now has a drop down control to switch between individual layers.

New or changed in 2.11.0:

Two new features that are the direct result of user suggestions and feedback:

  • Changed the flock member Egg Log screen to a calendar view instead of a list. Go to Flocks > Tap a member > Egg Log to view the calendar.
  • Added a shortcut from the flock member list on the Flocks screen to create a Journal entry (Requires Premium).

New or changed in 2.10.0:
