Anyone have an iPhone app they prefer to use/play around on for brewing? Which do you prefer over the other? Sorry I this was posted already, I searched and couldn't find it.

Beer Alchemy is the best for the IPhone, I create recipes with it, and it's easy to go to the LHBS and use as a shopping list.

I think beer alchemy is only good if you use the full program on a mac in conjunction.

I like brewpal which is only 99 cents. It will give you memory warnings but just ignore it. iBrewmaster is ok. It kinda annoys me tho. And it's stuck on 70% eff while I get 80 so PITA. I would get brewpal and if you don't like it your only out 99. The others are more expensive.

+1 to Alchemy. I've messed around with it a bit, and like it a lot. I recently purchase the full version for my Mac too. The wireless sync function is great. I did like it stand alone as well though.

Well I currently have brew pal and have several problems with it. Not just the memory but my ibu is stuck on zero for my current recipe, it keeps making me set up a SG and FG before I can do certain things. Its just became more of a pain than anything.

I hadn't done one, but I just tried and yes. Extract as well.

I haven't experienced that. Sometimes for me it goes goofy and I have to restart the thing. It has it's issues but I am not comfortable with the other programs. I can't remember the issue with Alchemy atmo. It was out of date on ingredients or something.
