Needs user input for improvements
App is disappointing, and not aligned with very high quality of the scale. While it has potential, this app is not very user friendly — it’s ok for very basic tracking, but there is tremendous room for improvement in user flow, features, and overall value and functionality. Simple elements that are common in most other apps and software we all use are missing here. Few examples: can’t easily repeat or copy a prior Print, visual layout (ex: some information doesn’t fully show when viewing a saved Print), field flexibility (ex: grind size should allow user to enter letters, numbers, etc. as needed), etc. There should be an easier way to view my own saved history than going to the feed. IMPORTANT: Developer should survey or interview a number of real users to identify missing pieces. Better yet, developer should include a cross-section of real users in the planning process for making the next phases of this app worthy of the scale, — something that helps users learn, experiment, track, and enjoy their favorite beverage much better.
The Pearl scale deserves a bit better
Can’t wait for this app to modernize a bit. It is slow, clunky, and hasn’t updated for my iPhone X. I would like more continuum toggles rather than so much typing like for ratios. It would be nice if the app learned over time or gave you suggestions based on your brewing. And if I could control all the scales settings through an app that would save me some frustration.
Had a friend playing with Goat Story’s Gina app and (though that app needs work too) it’s a cleaner and more intuitive experience.
This is a start but just not there yet.
For a $200 scale I expected a half-way thought out app that would get regular updates. This app has been abandoned and is as functionally designed as the scale itself which has trouble responding to touch sometimes and as a coffee scale somehow can’t handle heat without an extra rubber mat. The on-boarding is long and tedious, the recording process is not intuitive, and the app is handicapped if you don’t register and log in. At least the Bluetooth connection on launch is always reliable!
All I want in this app is a way to configure settings to turn off beeps, change units, and perhaps remove/configure my scale’s modes to make it easier for me to tare, pour, and start a timer on the scale without launching the app in the first place. The graphs and social suggestions could be nice but are definitely secondary.
I really want to love this scale since but at the moment it feels like a $200 scale under-designed for its coffee pour tracking potential. Watch someone new try to use it for the first time and you’ll find all you need to improve to make it a better experience.
