Is there a separate version for the iPhone and the iPad; do you have to buy both? If it's just one app, does iCloud sync the app data correctly?

I use BrewR for Android for creating recipes and I use brewzor calculator for everything else. Both are free and are awesome.

For the pc I use Brewmate which is free also and in my opinion much better than beer smith.

I use Brewzor Calculator. I was free for my Driod- not sure if they have it for I-Phone. But it does everything that i need while running around brewing like calculating my Strike temps, Decotion Volumns, Alcohol/ Attenuation...ect. I use promash for my recipe calculations and water needed.

On Android I use:

BrewzorProBeta - full out brewing app from recipe development to shopping list to calcs. Accepts BeerXML from BeerSmith and exports BeerXML to BeerSmith.

BrewAide - has a nice brewday feel to it, moreso than brewzor. Also imports BeerXML from BeerSmith. So I can formlate al lmy recipes in BeerSmith and import tham into both programs, or I can formulate in BrewzorPro and tweak them in BeerSmith later.

I have used beersmith for years and think it is/was great. However, I downloaded iBrewmaster about a year ago, and even though it doesn't have all the functionality of beersmith, the convenience of using it on my iPad or iPhone far outweighs the small gap in functionality. I would still switch back to beersmith if brad had a mobile verson today, but I fear that BS won't get there soon enough, as ibrewmaster continues to improve the functionality.

I use QBrew on the laptop for my recipes and just the stopwatch/timer on my phone for timing processes. Seems to work out well for me but have tried a couple phone based apps and wasn't real impressed, for my application they were too limited in functionality.

Brewzor is/was the best app for android that I found, however if you run some of the later version of android, 4.0 or 4.1, it gets kinda glitchy. I've tried emailing the developer to fix but the email listed for contact doesn't work. Shame
