I updated this morning. I immediately went to see if BeerSmith added 10 key entry to numerical fields… YES! My previous review held back giving it one star for this feature alone. As a regular user of this app before and on every single brew day, the lack of 10 key entry made it cumbersome and annoying. No more! Five stars! My next brew day just got a little sunnier.
No ability to track inventory.
The app is as good as you want it to be. BeerSmith has great tutorials to help get this setup
The app is just okay. No where near as nice as the desktop app. My main complaint is that the timer doesn’t go off audibly unless the app is open and your phone is unlocked. It defeats the purpose of a timer.
Not bad. It would be nice to have an inventory section to track what I have on hand. The water chemistry tool that is on the desktop would also be a good addition. It is nice for sitting around and creating recipes. Could definitely use some updates to make it more convenient to really nail down its intended use.
I love the app. I’m a first year home brewer, I really wish someone can make a simple to use water chemistry calculations, as in helping guide on on what water profiles we trying to target for a specific brew and if we building from distilled water what needs to be added to get those calculations.
The Beersmith App is a great tool for this very long time home brewer. It’s not a desktop application but it is very powerful and accurate. I can modify or correct recipes that are stored in the Beersmith cloud. I always have access to my recipes wherever I go. Develop your recipes on the desktop use your iPhone or iPad during the brew session. Needless to say I highly recommend this app. Take time to learn it’s full capabilities and you won’t be disappointed. It is regularly updated and support is great. Is it perfect, no. Is it a very powerful and low cost tool, absolutely. Bob
Terribly disappointing. Glitchy. Not worth the money.
This is basically a stand alone app. What I wanted (and thought this would be) was an app that syncs with the computer version through the cloud. NOPE! There is no easy way to sync anything. You need to create your recipes and save it on your computer. Then copy that into the cloud. Then go to your phone, find your recipe in the cloud, and then copy the same recipe onto your phone for offline access. Now you have the same recipe 3 times. Once in the cloud, and once locally on each device. If you are offline, and make a change, you have to manually synchronize the other 2 recipes. You must manually transfer over your customers equipment profiles, custom ingredients, fermentation profiles etc. Do you have customs grain absorption for BIAB? You’ll have to set all that up manually again. Nothing is automated. It’s pretty poor. What this app should do is allow you to CONNECT all your devices through one account. Then any device that has the app (mobile or desktop) will automatically sync all the recipes, profiles, styles etc. Then, when a change is made, even offline, it syncs across all the devices once a connection is made. You know. The way it works for virtually every app. Make. I mistake. This app is fine on its own. The desktop version is better. But as a “compliment” to the desktop, this falls woefully short!
