Glad to hear you like it. I have also seen these delays for some alarms. It usually only happens for one of them and then the next alarm is at the correct time. Is that what you saw? I think what is happening is when the phone goes to sleep it's taking a little time to wake up and realize there is an alarm going off. I have a couple of avenues to explore to fix this issue and I'm in the process of working through them now.

Thanks for the great feedback and keep it coming!!

Looks great! I'll give it a shot next time I brew.

The only constructive criticism I have is to make the order of the ok and cancel buttons the same throughout.

Do you program for a company or just as a hobby? I've been programming for a small company here in Louisville for almost 10 years now. Always nice to meet fellow programmers

You know I looked at that application over and over and never saw that. Thanks!

My degree in in Computer Engineering, focusing on hardware design but I've pretty much always been a coder. Most of my stuff has been professional work has been with mainframe and Windows based stuff. On the side, to help friends out and for fun, I do web-based stuff like PHP and Java. The Android stuff I got into because I had an Android phone and really wanted a brew timer to use myself.

Very nice. Have a brew day coming up on Sunday, and will provide feedback once I have ran through it.

Yeah, I set up everything to build an Android app when I first got my phone, too, but I still haven't thought of that million dollar app idea... maybe one day

Looks good! This might be just a personal preference, but is there a way to set a default steeping time as "0"? I don't steep grains, and its just another step to have to enter "0" in the steeping field, since it is required.

Great Idea, I'll add it to the list. Thanks!

I haven't gotten to use this during the boil yet however I have got a change to play with it. My first problem was figuring out how to configure it...really it's a shame on me as I hardly ever read instructions. However when I did they were very straight forward and helpful. I do have a couple suggestions, I'll stick to just one in this post.

Could you look into adding the ability to making "custom notifications" for this app. For example I use "Handcent" to manage SMS/MMS. Handcent allows me to make custom notifications with such settings as "Notification Sound", "Notification Icon" (type and color that appears in the Notification Bar), Vibrate Settings (Always, Never, When Asleep), Vibrate pattern ( default, Normal, Long, Short, Multiple Short, multiple long, Custom) and LED Blinking ( Color and Pattern). I also have other programs that can manage their notification settings. Because by default Android has one sound for all notifications. Default means you hear the same sound for VoiceMail, Email, SMS, MMS....ect. My Apps allow me to have a different notification for each one. So not only can the sound tell me what it is, but on vibrate mode I know based on the pattern.

All and all it's a great tool so far, thank you for all your hard work.
