Default BrewR for Android

Hey Guys,

I am happy to announce that a new *stable* version of BrewR for Android has been published to the Android Market.

BrewR is an easy to use beer recipe creator app for your Android phone or tablet that also includes a built-in Brew Day Timer.

FEATURES

* Brew Day Timer can run in the background and will pop up and sound the alert when it's time to take action (e.g. add hops)
* Time remaining in the boil is shown in the expanded notification bar
* Hops are listed in the timer and get highlighted when they should go into the boil
* Complete (and fully editable) ingredient database
* Supports US or Metric units
* File format compatible with QBrew v0.4.1 (QBrew is a free home-brewing software for PC and Linux)
* All recipes are stored on the SD card as .qbrew files for easy import and export
* Supports "share recipe" feature for easy sharing with friends

SCREENSHOTS



More screenshots can be found at this URL:

Please download the free DEMO version from Android Market and try it out if you have an Android phone. A paid version is also available if you like the app enough to support its further development.

Your feedback is much appreciated!

Peter,
BrewR & FeedR Developer

*edit
On a Droid X when I start the timer the alarm immediately goes off. If I start it with the volume turned all the way down, then turn it back up once the alarm starts it stays off.

Downloaded and put in a quick (simple) recipe. I would suggest you add a "pause" on the brew timer, it's either start or stop. After stop it resets to the original start time (90 min in my case).

When I drop my 50' of IC around 15 I pause my timer until I can get boiling again, usually a few minutes.

Looks good so far.

The alarm should go off (for 10 seconds or less) whenever there is a hop to be added. If your boil time is 60 minutes and you have a bittering hop addition at the same time it will go off immediately as you press "Start" and will highlight the 60 min hop addition(s) for the next 1 min.
