Brewzor is a decent app for Android. I think it needs a few improvements to be complete, but it has a few nice calculators and I use it pretty much every time I brew.

Frankly, when I'm working on a recipe I could never see myself fumbling around with my touchscreen. I prefer a mouse and keyboard.

I tried to make a recipe last night on my tablet in the Brewzor program. It was a pain and wont do it again. I do agree the calculators it has sure are handy.

On Iphones a lot of apps use rollers to make selections rather than typing anything it.



I'm assuming in Ibrewmaster all their grains and hops and yeasts are on rollers as are the measurements shown above. You choose a grain, then the roller with weights pops up and you roll til you get to the weight you want.

It's pretty quick and easy.

So what we've learned here is that Iphones have decent brew apps as far as data entry does, but android doesn't.

I can't say how decent the brewing apps are since I'm holding out on buying one til we see what brad is going to do. But I will say having owned both a droid and an iphone, that Ipones have much easier data entry options than my android ever did. I really find those little spinny wheely things to be very simple to use.

There is no reason why an android app couldnt utilize the spinning wheel selector. That is what erks me about android apps they have one for every iphone app available but usually are not as "polished" as their competitor. I think that as people are starting to migrate further and further away from PCs and more into the mobile smartphones as a do it all device we will and in some cases already are seeing that change for the better.

I got an email (might have been a cut/paste response) from Brad today indicating he is working on the backend functionality to make smart phone stuff work. He wants easy synchronization between phone and PC app, so cloud stuff is getting done now.

So I guess it's "in the works". Stay tuned. BTW, he mentioned Android / iPhone / iPad

For everyone complaining about iphone only Beersmith, I sent Brad a link to an API that should allow him to do cross-platform development for both iOS and Android.

I got a response as well, basically he said he's working on the cloud for recipe transfer and the app would get next priority. I guess well wait and see.
