Default Learning android, writing recipe formulator app

I wanted to learn android programming, and I love making beer so I decided to write a recipe formulation / brew day app. It its currently in really rough shape, but is almost useful as a basic recipe formulator. It will be free, open source, and supported for a little while at least.

I am wondering if people would want me to toss it on the market for super early beta testing, or if people would rather wait for a more polished version. Also, I need to come up with a name for this thing... Any ideas?

I'll test for you on my droid2. I haven't found one that I like yet, maybe getting in ground floor I can remember what I didn't like about others and help that way.

I'd be interested in Alpha/Beta testing this app for you on a HTC Sensation XE, I'm the same as many others that haven't quite found the right app with all features that I would like to use on a brew day. I did write an app for Windows Mobile 6.5 but I haven't quite worked up the enthusiasm to convert it from .net to java

You do not need to put it on the market for us to test, you just need to post us a link to the compiled .apk and we can load it on our phones.

The advantage of this is that random people will not be rating the application poorly if there are bugs and posting negative comments.

Sound like it is going into the market early then. Any thoughts on what to call it?

+1 for link. I'll be happy to test it out on my atrix. Definitely don't put it on the market until it's polished. You could go with megaupload or another free file server. You'll be shooting yourself in the foot with the bad reviews in the market.

I'd call it Fkn Beer, but I'm sure most wouldn't agree

https://github.com/tmonahan/BeerCalc...er/current_apk

BeerCalculator is the generic name that I have been using, not at all permanent. This is my first attempt at making an android app, and first attempt at an APK so be warned! I have however successfully side loaded this APK on my Atrix, so it should work.
