Can't disagree with that logic but I was already updated and brewed a batch at the last minute.
Good thing is they released a fix yesterday and all is working fine now.

I posted this in the General Discussion and realized it probably is better suited here. I have Brew Pal and am getting to know it. I cannot figure out how to import a recipe into Beer Pal. Can anyone help me?

Yeah, it's a well known flaw not only concerning BP but also other brewing apps(and actually not only them). That's because of Apple 'sandbox' restrictions, mostly. Developpers are trying to do their best : starting app server = importing via wifi; copy&paste methode or just simlpy file import. BrewPal is using this last option.
You have to go to Recipes&Batch History-->right upper corner icon. There you have 2 options: URL to a file and iTunes sync.
ONE LAST THING: importing file has to be in beer.xml format, and only. Truth said, it's working so so, sometimes good, sometimes not at all. It depends probably from where (pc sofware, web sites etc.) beerxml file was exported.
I learned that among all ways, the quickest way is, just to copy all recipe (from website ex.) and paste it into new recipe notes. Eventually from there slowly filling up whole new BP recipe. Good luck then

I did it this way:
Export into BeerXML from wherever, save to PC.
Device connected and iTunes open.
Click phone, then apps tab. Scroll down to the section for storage. Drag and drop file to Brewpal
In brewpal app, recipes, file folder widget, import from iTunes. You can do the import from URL too but hard to host the file natively. You can import from other direct links but I've found the number of links available on the internets to be a bit limited. I am 100% on this exporting from BTP.

I think this is the best feature, it also really disrupts the market. Healthy competition is spurring action with the software guys.

I could, if given the opportunity, go on another extended rant about how lame it is that the guys that sell PC based applications are way too slow to market with this. BS will be a while longer to have a full version: http://beersmith.com/blog/2012/09/25...d-and-android/

BTP doesn't seem to be working very hard at it either.

Instead, ill just say that I'm really glad this app is here and he's making updates. I've long needed to be able to take recipes portable. Now, if I could sync recipes dynamically/wirelessly that would be something.

Is there any way at all to transfer a beerxml from a friend's brewpal to my brewpal without having to screw with a PC? He can email his beerxml to my email, where I can open it on my phone...however, I can't open it via brewpal like I'd like. Any answers here?

I think if u save .xml file to Dropbox, Dropbox will give you a URL to import from! I think!
First download Dropbox to your iPhone.
When you get the XML file in your email, hold your finger on file till it gives you an option to open with Dropbox.
Hope this helps

I heard back from Brewpal support on how to import from Dropbox!

The URL that Dropbox gives u is actually a HTML wrapper that presents you with a Dropbox webpage. Iit is pretty easy to convert this URL into a true download link:

1) Change "https" to "http"
2) Change "www" to "dl"

For instance Dropbox creates this:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/nwidfgch94...ble%20Pils.xml

Change it to this:

http://dl.dropbox.com/s/nwidfgch94lc...ble%20Pils.xml

Enjoy the free Noble Pils Recipe :-)

There is now, if you use the iCloud. Just get the latest update to BrewPal. It's in the BrewPal settings in the app to use iCloud. I just did this a few days ago and now all my recipes are on my iPhone and iPad. It doesn't show any current status for batches you may be brewing on both of them though. That's only in the one you used on brew day.

Happy Brewing!!
