Wow, it's been way to long since I updated this app. Been a whirlwind couple of years with my twins, moving, etc but I'm settled now and have some time to work on this (and to brew! Got a Foreign Extra Stout in the fermenter now.). I just posted a new version of the app to the Google Play Store (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rewtimer&hl=en
). The new features for the Brew Timer are:
- Added feature (fixed bug!) so the alarms sounds while on a phone call. Previously, since notifications are ignored while on a call the phone wouldn't alert you. Now I read your phone state when an event is triggered and if your phone is not idle I send to alarm to the audio player so the alarm can be heard.
- Added ability to change the font size of the events and button text. When I released this app Android Tablets were few a far between. With the advent of tablets and higher resolution smartphone screens I needed to do something to make things easier to read.
- Optimized the landscape UI layout. Changed around how the screen is used so things fit better while in landscape mode.
- Cleaned up the UI a bit.
- Fixed several small bugs.
As always, I'm interested in what you think and any bugs, features, additions you'd like to see. This is a free app and I am not going to put ads into it. It's just a labor of love because I needed a better timer for myself while brewing.
Give it a shot and tell me what you think!
EDIT: Forgot to mention that my next update (other then any bugs that are found) is the ability to import a recipe from BeerSmith into Brew Timer so you do not need to enter all the information by hand.
