Great app

Nice facelift from previous version with many new features and haven't had any problems with it to date. Great work

App Crash

In the past I haven’t had any problems with this app up until the other day. Everything was running ok, until I got to end of mash out, when Bluetooth connectivity dropped off. Then it did the same again though out two stages of the boil process. To mention this is one of the saved recipes for a 19 litre Lunar Zombie. So can this be a problem within app or something at my end which has
developed ?

Painful UI

The app functions fine and I’ve never had a problem with the way it communicates with the GF. But the app UI is painful to use, it’s laggy and buggy. How is it so slow? It’s not my phone as it’s very new and I use other resource intensive apps without any issue at all. I wouldn’t normally be one to write a negotiate review but it’s been like this for ages, considering the cost of the Grainfather, the ease of developing apps these days and the old app working just fine... you expect more!
