Works well. It did crash while trying to create a recipe. I highly recommend adding a step for blooming as that seems pretty common. Currently custom recipes don’t show you what needs to be done at each step which is very frustrating and makes it useless. Great aesthetic and feel though.
This is not a well thought out app there is no way to modify a custom recipe, to make a single change you have to create a complete new recipe, which is a huge waste of time It also does not give you total brew times either in the pre-made recipes or custom ones as it only counts fill and steep times, not press or stir or flip times in the total needs some major updates
Crashes every time I try to complete making my own recipe. Hope this can be fixed soon!
The recipes are a good collection, although some are inaccurate (Tim Wendelboe’s, for example). Design is well thought out, too. Missing basic features, such as the ability to edit a recipe, even a recipe you yourself have created. Also, even though both volume measurements support a simple/weight setting, there is no such setting for grind. It would nice to be able to, for example, for simple say “Fine” but for the specific setting say “20” for the exact grind size on your grinder. At this point, it’s not a $5 app. But I would have been happy with a $1-2 price.
I love the timer and how it easily breaks down the step. I bought this app because it allowed you to create your own recipe. The recipe creation definitely needs some work. It does not let me specify how many grams of water to pour. Also, if I enter something incorrectly, there is no way of going back to edit. You just have to start over. I hope future updates fix this issues. Right now, it’s not worth $5.
I love this! So innovative and takes a lot of guess work or anxiety out of the process. I have one suggestion. I want to import my recipes and ones I’ve found online to the app. There’s a feature for that, but it’s very rough and doesn’t give me the customization that the preset recipes have. For example, the “Blue Bottle” recipes says to “pour / 40g of water for ten seconds.” However when you customize your own recipe you’re not able to detail how much water to pour. This is a very odd thing to leave out? It nullifies the idea of importing my own recipes so I don’t have to remember them... because I still have to remember them. The app would immediately be 5 stars if I could use it to add my own recipes. For $4.99 it ought to allow me to do that.
As a newcomer to using the AeroPress I was looking for an app that could help me look for recipes and give me a chance to enter in my own. The interface of using one of the pre-load recipes is very well designed and works quite well, taking you step by step through the brewing process. The one thing that is frustrating me is that when I try to enter in my own recipe or one that I have found, the app crashes and force closes. This is MAJOR drawback to the app, especially given that I paid for it. Along those lines, here are a few things I would like to see added to the app. More in depth instructions for harder recipes, backgrounds on the brewing method/who made them, and videos to show how each recipe is done for reference. Overall 6/10 Needs improvement but not the worst thing out there
This app is a GREAT idea. The way it’s laid out is great. The functionality is great. There are three main problems. Firstly, I have discovered that MANY of the recipes are not recorded correctly. In clicking the links to the source for the recipe, the grams of coffee are often wrong, the grind size can be wrong, and other details as well. The recipe link is right in the app. These are easily verifiable mistakes. Secondly, it would be nice to have the option to edit existing recipes. Taking for granted that the recipes are correct, it would be nice to be able to make changes. Finally, it would be lovely to have a little more flexibility on the options you can include for making your own recipe. For instance, I have a recipe I like from the 2017 World AeroPress Competition winner, and she adds water to the coffee after it has been plunged and brewed. There’s no way for me to add that in the app. Maybe include a function where you can type in your own instruction instead of having to rely solely on the instruction items provided in the app. I want to love this app so badly. But inaccurate recipes? I actually can’t use this app now. I have to find the original recipes to get the correct data. Accurate, verified recipes, and a little more flexibility/customization would make this PERFECT.
What does it mean when it says add shot is it the numbered dots on the aeropress
First of all I want to commend you “Beloved Robot” for creating such a great and useful AeroPress app. When I saw this 2-3 years ago I was excited at the prospect of a dedicated app for my AeroPress and the possibilities presented by all the different recipes. That being said, there have been many world championships since the initial list was created so my recommendation from one developer to another is to take some time and create some new built in/ default recipes that reflect the methods of the 2015/2016/2017/2018 world championship winners (1st/2nd/3rd), add them and group them by year if need be. This should be done at least once a year...I don’t think this is a large development task at all and if grouping is added to support this breakdown would probably take the most work initially...after that just keep updating with new recipes. I mention this because I find myself increasingly going to find these recipes elsewhere and not using the app, also because of the lack of recipe updates I am becoming more and more inclined to just write my own app but I would prefer to you, the original AeroPress timer.
