Minor update, just fixed the light text on the first run dialog after updates and fixed a rare random bug with the folder view (hopefully, cant reproduce the error myself so well see if I get anymore reports).

App is pretty much done now, was going to put some features in but they are really just extras and think I like it the way it is. As always though if you have any suggestions/complaints feel free to post on here and if I can, I will try to incorporate it.

after installing the update today the app kept crashing when i tried to open it - i had to uninstall and reinstall but seems to be working now (android 4.0.4 on HP touchpad with CM9mod)

perhaps I missed it but does it not read 1/2oz increments?
i've got a recipe with 5.5oz biscuit malt that reads as 5.0oz on the app
- not a big deal but was curious

will be using this for the 1st time today for my brew timers - really looking forward to it

There is another update that was just released, that fixed it, missed a small fix from testing to release that caused the problem. And should read down to 0.5 oz, gives more accurate if you unselect the option to have it be lbs/oz and just pounds, gives decimals then

I had the same issue with crashing and having to reinstall after the update

Once the market updates the new version (2.6) the bug should be fixed

Sure, its quite easy once you figure it out.

Steps:
1. Download and install Dropbox on your computer (follow the steps on the dropbox page, let me know if you need more info)
2. Download and install app on Android device, and open up app for the first time. When asked for dropbox click yes and allow, input dropbox login data. Once this is done there will be a folder created in your dropbox folder under the Apps Folder called BrewAide (Brew Buddy for those who installed a pre 2.0 version before the name change)

That is it for the initial setup next is placing recipes in your BrewAide folder:

3. Right click on Recipe and select Export Selected
4. Browse to your Dropbox folder and put in BrewAide folder should be Dropbox\Apps\BrewAide

Now open up the brewaide app and go to folders then dropbox and it should be there. If it isnt, go to the BrewAide folder on your computer and make sure its updated.

If you want to store the recipe on your device at this point, navigate to the folder on the app click on the recipe and on the popup select copy to local folder, it will make a copy on your device so you will no longer need internet.

Hope this helps and you enjoy the app. Let me know if you need any other help with it

The only feature that I think might be useful would be recipe scaling in the tools section in case you are bored

I just downloaded this app and I'm looking forward to using it.

One question- I can't move the app from my phone's internal memory to the SD card. That would be a really handy feature- my phone only has 213MB internal. Is there any way to do that without your intervention, or would it be possible to allow that in a future release?

@jwitt
Ill look into seeing what I need to do to make it movable to the SD card. About to go overseas so been a little busy

@opusx11
Ill add it to the list, need to see what is all involved with scaling and if it is as simple as just multiplying it by the scale factor or if it requires more thought.
