I found the phone is not the best device for brewing software. Limited real estate on the screen and LOTS of recipe data make for lots of clicking, selection menus with long lists, and a generally difficult experience. I much prefer using my ipad with iBrewmaster, it is relatively intuitive, includes lots of options, auto calculates temps and volumes, and is very flexible. I assume the same functions are included in the phone app, but again, screen size must be very limiting.

I have Ibrewmaster on my iPhone and my brew buddy has his on iPad. When brewing at my house or as in today's brew the recipes on my phone I use my phone. iPad is easier and when we can we use that. It takes a little getting used to since I didn't know a whole lot coming in but now it's easy and does pretty much all you need

I use beer alchemy on my iPhone. Stores recipes, inventory, and helps with alot of brew day calculations.

I have Brew Pal on my iPad and iPhone. I've been using it on the Ipad for over a year now and love it.
