A friend had a hive wallet, on my recommendation.  Now hivewallet.org is closed and he's lost the app, how can I restore if I have the 12 words?

I tried using counter wallet or and old copy of brainwallet.org but doesnt match.

I believe the source is on github.

Yes, looks like the source is here:
https://github.com/hivewallet/hivewallet.com
https://github.com/hivewallet


He may be able to reuse the seed words on a different wallet too, such as Electrum.
