I need to buy beer software. I guess my preference is compatibility with other users.

Which do you use and recommend?

I use BeerSmith. Does everything I need it to do and probably more. Plus he's a regular here so if you have any issues you can address them with him.

A search of this forum will show that while many softwares are popular, on Windows most use Beersmith.

Another fan of BeerSmith here -- once you get it dialed in it's VERY effective. I found it really added to my consistency from batch to batch.

Fermenting: A few beers

Conditioning: A few other beers
Bottled: A few more beers
Kegged: Many beers
Next Brews: More beers than you could imagine

Brewpal for the iPhone.

I'll probably put beersmith on my laptop once I get my brewing area finished...

Another Beersmith user right here. I used BrewPal twice on the iPhone, and I use it from time to time when I'm away from home to plug in ingredients and play around, but I use Beersmith when actually planning out and on brewday.
Fermenting: Munich Helles, Mole Porter, White IPA, SMaSH 2Row/Jarrylo
Drinking: Cider, Stout
On Deck: TBD
