Customer Reviews

Clean, Simple, Easy


Bee does a great job of making JIRAs avaible at the tip of your fingers. Keyboard shortcut to file a new JIRA is a godsend. Being able to browse the current sprint an backlog locally instead of spend time waiting for a spinner has helped me become sane again.

This is a solid and simple to use application that brings long-needed native app support for a web interface that is far too overcomplicated.

Frequent updates and a healthy response to feature requests, keeps me looking forward to the next version and the features it brings. Keep up the good work!

Great tool for developers

Michael Ballantyne

Handles the basics for developers really well. Define a group of issues you care about with a smart group; create new issues with a global hotkey on your mac; Look through the issues on your todo list without the lag of the JIRA web UI; Search issues live as you type the key or name; submit time tracking data by hitting start and stop in your menu bar. It can't do everything the web UI can do - if you're a product manager who spends most of your day in JIRA shuffling tickets between sprints this won't totally fill your needs (at least not yet). But if you're a developer mostly interested in lining up what the immediate next steps are, this is great. Especially since you can track your personal tasks with local notes and your open source stuff with github issues from the same app.

I reported a few bugs as I was checking it out and got an email response about them within a few hours and saw a new release was pushed out with fixes for most of them, which is pretty awesome. It is obvious the developer is committed to and excited about the app. If you find there is something missing for your use case definitely hit the Help -> Send Feedback link and tell him about it. You'll likely hear back promptly.

Great and always improving

Muffin McDanger

If you check my review history, youll notice most of the reviews I leave for apps are pretty bad. But today is different, because this app is different. This software has been a lifsaver (and a timesaver) since I bought it last year. The UI is sleek, the notificaitons and display options are incredibly flexible, its incredibly fast and easy to use. The developers are friendly and responsive, its really nice to see a team take their work this seriously. This is everything a task management system should be Im also excited about the development teams ambitions to include additional task management systems down the road. All in all, this is the kind of software I always hope for when downloading stuff from the app store, but rarely see. If I could give these guys 10 stars, I would.

One thing on my wishlist: I would love for a future version of this to have an option to work in the background from the menubar, completely outside of the dock.
