At the top where is currently says "Boil Timer" change to "Brew Timer - [MODE]" were [MODE] would be "Boil Mode" or "Mash Mode".

When on click "New Profile" ask which mode desired, then "Enter Profile Name"....

Bottom Menu, move "Preferences" to the "More" menu and replace with "Mode Type" to allow current timer to be changed modes in a pop-up. This would probably need some sort of alert that "Timers will be reset if mode is changed"

Just my thoughts. Thanks for your work

I used this timer on my last 2 beers and it crashed out during both of them, leaving me with a very bitter IPA. Has anybody else had this problem? I had the timer running but had to do some other things on my phone and when I went back to the app it had frozen. I just removed it and reinstalled it and I'm hopeful on my next beers.

Hey Cernst151,

I have not seen this happen before in my testing. I use the app on a Galaxy 4S and an old Droid Incredible. Can you tell me about the phone you're using? Is it rooted? Anything else happening on the phone noticeable? I checked the Developers console and no errors/crashes have been reported there that can give me a clue to what is happening.

Thanks,

Adam

Adam,
Thanks for checking in. It's a Droid Razr through Verizon. I haven't noticed any other issues with it. I haven't brewed since that day but plan on doing a few batches with friends this weekend. I've reinstalled the app and will try it, with another timer as a backup, this weeekend when I brew again. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Colin

Alright, keep me in the loop and I'll see what I can do.

I brewed a couple batches this weekend and it worked fine. Hopefully the previous batches were a fluke. One thing I wish is that the audio alert would continue until you turn it off like my alarm clock in the morning. The alarm went off and I didn't hear it. Luckily my buddy heard a sound which made me check my phone. Is there any way to make the alert continue until you tap it?

So, I went in to settings and found that I already had selected continuous alerting but I de-selected it and re-selected it and also played around with other settings a bit. Now it alerts very adamantly. Thanks!

Glad it's all working out for you now. I think there are a couple of little gotchas when the app initializes on a phone the first time. I'm working on an update right now (import and export of profiles in a BeerXML format) and I take some time to see if I have some problems down there.

Thanks a lot for your feedback and enjoy!
