I can't get the update without upgrading from 3.0 to 3.1.9. Is there any way around this?

Does this most recent update automatically notify us? I've had Brewpal for a few months now but didn't get a notice for this most recent update. How can I get the update "manually"?

Sad to hear, my droid is on its way to my house right now and was hoping to install this program.

Mine showed up in the app store as an update. Butbyou can just search for it and replace it.

Thanks for the reply. I searched for it but I only get the $0.99 button. If I click on this button will I have to pay another $.99?

Yes, just click the buy button, it will know that you have it and tell you it is a free upgrade. Unfortunately for me, I have not upgraded to my iphone 3.1.2 , so it won't let me. Still waiting to see what the developer says. I hate having to upgrade my iphone firmware when all is working well.

Update notifications are handled completely by the app store, and are out of the control of the developer... in iTunes (on OS X), clicking on the "Applications" section in the left navigation bar will list all of your apps, then in the lower right there is a "Check for Updates" button. I think the method mentioned earlier of searching for "Brew Pal" in the app store and clicking the buy button will also work, but I have never needed to do this.

For those of you that have not updated from iPhone OS 3.0: I build with a target OS of 3.1.2 (or whatever is current) in the SDK, although I did not know that this limited the ability to install on 3.0! There are other controls in the app store for setting the minimum OS level, and I have these set to 3.0. I apologize for this, and the next update will be built for 3.0.

Re: Timers

Unfortunately there is no way to interface with the Calendar application. If/when Apple allows this you can bet there will be a Brew Pal update to create a Fermentation calendar! In 1.6.9 the timers will continue to run when the app is closed (ie. start the boil timer, close the app, start it in 5 minutes and your timer will have elapsed 5 minutes), but you can only receive alerts and ringer sounds if the app is active. Fortunately you can hit the "sleep" hardware button while Brew Pal is running, and you will still receive notifications even though the screen is off.

Re: Yeast

There appears to be a bug with the "lager" switch. I'll fix that ASAP! When you are in the Yeast tab the lager switch will change your pitching rate. Other than that it doesn't really affect your recipe at all.
