I asked the designer of Brewtarget about porting his program to Droid and this was his reply. Maybe someone can make sense of it and port his program to an app. Ive used it and its pretty nice.


I don't have any experience with porting to the droid, but from what I read, it is quite possible.

If you know anyone who might be up to the task, let me know

I'd love one for Windows Mobile, but Droid seems a much better phone and OS.
I agree on Windows Mobile. I don't have Windows yet, I am waiting for Windows Phone 7 to come out. It would be awesome if someone had one alredy developed for when it comes out.

I too would love a good app for Droid. The two free ones are not comprehensive, and the timers don't work all the time. I would like something as good as beersmith or even better if I could go back and forth from beersmith to the Droid. Keep us posted. I would also be willing to pay as much as I did for beersmith for an app that good.
Mmm, beer.

Throwing in my 2 cents for wanting a good brewing app on Droid which I ordered yesterday. I'll try out the available apps. I've seen a little bit of Brewpal on iphone and it looked nice.

Building on the "export as html and host on a local Apache server", I signed up for and do a text file output of the recipe and save it into the Dropbox folder on the desktop, which auto syncs it with their servers. You can get to it from anywhere, but it comes right up on the phone as a text file, since there's a handy Dropbox official app for Android. If you use a text file, you could make changes or notes.

Dropbox is also great for storing recipes of anything you bring places where people ask you how to make it. Just get their email address and mail it to them right out of the folder. I may have done that a few times with a cake recipe.

So whats the deal, where is the progress at?
When describing a decent beer I like to say "Happy, but not quite hilarious."
