Good News Everyone!! (name the tv reference)

As promised I released the new update and with a few more features than expected, heres the list of fixes/updates:

-App now registered as default app for BSMX, so this means that if you download a file to your SD somewhere from a webpage and go into your filebrowser and click on it, it should open my app to the recipe view page automatically. Now its been hit or miss on the support, some file browsers work and some dont (not sure why or how to fix at the moment)
-Fixed BrewSteps display to better handle different screen sizes
-Fixed yeast unit display
-Fixed refractometer over 1.100 display wrong
-Fixed Steeped hops display
-Added lbs/oz option for grains
-Added Sparge steps to brewsteps

Thanks Mysticmead for the support and understanding, makes it nicer to know people actually appreciate work instead of just wanting everything (which is what it feels like sometimes)

Now for more news....Upcoming features/updates:
-As always any bugs will be fixed quickly
-Display measured data on recipe view page for quick reference
-Strike Temp tool
-Hydrometer temp adjust tool
-Carb tool

Mash volume is incorrect. In BeerSmith I have it compensating for the dead space in the mash tun. BrewAid removes that volume, so the amount is not accurate. It still has the mash strike water in gallons, not quarts, even though I specified quarts in the settings and even reloaded the recipe. It asks me what I want to do with the recipe every time I pick it from the folder (more annoying than anything else).

Correct on reference

Ok i found the problem with the mash vol units had it referencing the wrong volume setting.

As for the popup on asking what you want to do, what would you recommend to both give the option to do multiple things and make it less annoying. its in there to give more options and also prevent accidental opening of recipes when scrolling through list?

As for the Deadspace, ive looked into it, and I was using the wrong tun deadspace, its in the BSMX file twice, once for equipment and once for the mash because I was looking at the mash I did my equations slightly off. Corrected it and the next update will be fixed

IMO, IF I'm going through the list of recipes, from within BrewAide, then I'm looking to open one of them. If I have trouble navigating on my device, that's MY issue.

Maybe have an option to open/import a recipe instead of using the folder button?

Waiting for the update to resolve the mash volume issue.

BTW, I typically use quarts for the mash strike water volume, and gallons for the sparge water. Having quarts for both would be better, IMO, than mixing it up. Or have the option to select within the settings...

Because of the complexity of allowing recipe editing the ability to do this might be too complicated to implement, however I think what I could do is make an IBU tool, it would have an input for the information needed and tell you how much IBUs a certain hop addition would add to the recipe. Would that be beneficial/worth it overall?

or

I might be able to have it show the IBU contribution on the shopping list, and then when you enter the Hop into the substitution list (which will be two seperate list, wont be able to update recipe) it will show the IBU contrib on that list so you can edit it and make it match what you are substituting.

Is anybody having trouble with BeerXML opening. I got one error report for an error, and it has to do with carb data, but cant reproduce the problem. Got a bad rating because of it also.

I hate it when people rate low because of ONE bug that they could be the only person having that problem. I'll copy a few BeerXML recipes over to local and see if it errors for me
