Get stuck at the paywall where I have to subscribe to pro, or provide a credit card number to start a free trial, which I'd have to cancel later, without ever even getting to try the app. Not a chance I'm giving a credit card number for a free trial when I can't select the free option instead. Edit: despite the comment below, there is no option to dismiss the popup referred to. This is predatory advertising and a deceptive response. I was offered a free week via email (which I did not use)

Hi Nick - Thanks for your feedback. The prompt to start a trial Pro subscription is optional - if you dismiss it, you will be able to use the app on our Free Basic plan, just make sure you're on the latest version. Apologies for any confusion caused. If you have any questions, email us at support@herdwatch.com and we will be glad to assist further.

This would be a usable app for small scale producers if there was a way to access, enter, and download information on a computer. Having to do every single thing on a phone or tablet is too cumbersome and highly inefficient. Plus, if you do treatments which aren't all the same dose you have to individually go in and do them one-by-one or the support people at Flockwatch tell you to enter it as a note on the individual animal's record which does nothing for looking up herd/flock treatments.

Hi Connie 👋 and thanks for your message. We do have a computer version which allows you to do everything on a big screen, please contact us at support@herdwatch.com to get going on it, or visit app.herdwatch.com to log in. For the recording of treatments, the majority of our customers record an average dose for the group - We hope this helps!

Was looking for an app to easily track some ruminants. Somehow stumbled across the $79 per year fee. They don't even include that info in the welcome email notifying you that you've started your 7 day free trial. Would be nice if they'd be honest up front, in the app! With regards to functionality, seems a little clunky to me. May get better with use, but I was looking for something a little more reasonable, so I won't try to get good at it.

Dear Bryan, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear our plan options were not clear to you. Be reassured that you don't have to pay a fee - you can stay on the free basic version of Herdwatch. The PRO version simply has more features. I hope this helps and if you have any further questions please email us at support@herdwatch.com.
