    Hi Simon
    I don’t know how many beekeepers there are with your name but I came across an old post where you were lamenting the unavailability of Google docs off line for record keeping. It struck a chord with me since I too was looking for exactly the same thing. Eventually I found something that does the trick – mobile forms. A free app (if you only want to connect one device – Android/iPhone/iPad) it will store your data and upload when you connect to the internet. I’ve been using it for more than a couple of years now and it works well. I am now developing a database version which should have a lot more to offer in terms of accessing the data in a useful format and in the field. You can access my template and instructions from our Sheffield BKA website: http://www.sheffieldbeekeepers.org.uk/tools/online-inspection-record-keeping/
