Perfect for a mobile app

I downloaded this to my iPad about 6 months ago, and it’s all I use. I can create recipes without any problem and most of the app is great. Cons: I still don’t like the timer function, and I can’t click and drag ingredients around within the recipe. But does it set me up to make great beer? Yep! Cheers

Nice App

Don’t listen to the naysayers. This is a great standalone app. I used iBrewMaster for years and Apple took it off the App Store with no warning. After I updated my phone I could no longer use it. I looked for a new app and I know a lot of people use the full software version of Beersmith and love it. I was hesitant to download this app due to the 2.9 star rating. That is bunk. It does everything you need from designing and saving recipes to the cloud, water adjustment calculations, mash efficiency, etc…I would highly recommend this app as your go to recipe and brew day app!

Don’t waste your time

I’m an avid user of the full version of the software and I love it. That said the mobile edition is a headache from the word go. Nothing connects, so you have to go re-enter all your equipment info, water profiles, re-download add ons like grain and hops, and will only hold a few cloud recipes.

In short, this is a really lackluster app to be selling in 2020, even if free it would have major downsides. I’m using BeerSmith on desktop to prep and other apps for timing and tracking of fermentation.
