It’s great to brew with but it is terrible to create with. Lags bounces around and sensitive all at the same time. Don’t forget to change you efficiency every time. I just got screwed on my last brew.
Issues with recipe management!
Primarily the biggest problem with this app is how poorly it handles the simple task of starting a brew session and accurately logging brew sessions! The app is a kludge of really great looking tools which I am able to use and like individually. But the app falls short in the area of recipe selection when starting a new brew session. It is difficult to select your recipe! It is difficult start the actual brew session! Brew session versions get mysteriously generated and stored out! In general the app has been put together piecemeal and has lost obvious intuitive control of sessions causing you to restart the session. Then you end up with stored versions of the same recipe saved without a clue as to why!
You need to really clean up the session control aspect of the app! This is killing your product!
Useless for controlling the controller
I bought this system over others because of the connectivity. It has been well over a year since I gave up on this app working. I figured I would see if I could get things to work today since there had to be updates to the app, well nope still a pointless exercise in frustration. All I ever get is a message telling me my Bluetooth appears to be off, it's on and it's the only device with the app on it. Sure you can access and create recipes on your phone/tablet but I have a 24" desktop Mac I would much rather use for that end of things. I completely regret the purchase of this system. Would you please for the love of sanity return the app to its former glory, this version should be a complete embarrassment to you.
