Didn't notice that, nice. The c02 levels on that page are all 0's and I noticed the time for a dry hop was 10080 min, can that just say dry hop instead? Noticed it in the yooper ruination clone.

Also, make the recipe list scrollable. If I am in landscape, I can't see all the recipes and can't scroll through them. Not an issue now but if someone were to import alot of recipes they wouldn't be able to see the ones at the end

As it turns out, the android platform has no file browser built in... So making a basic file browser is part of getting the file import done. I am getting close, and have taken care of some nuisance items along the way (just made recipes scroll in the main screen). Hopefully I will have an update before the end of the weekend.

Awesome dude, thanks for doing this. I haven't used java in about 5 years, but if you ever get stuck with something and need to bounce ideas off someone let me know.

Importing is working for me... So there is a new version available. Please let me know if a recipe fails to load, I want this as compatible as possible and I don't have many files to debug with here. Sending an example would be best!

Next might be exporting, timers, or options... is there any preference for the next tasks?

BeerCalculator is the generic name that I have been using, not at all permanent. This is my first attempt at making an android app, and first attempt at an APK so be warned! I have however successfully side loaded this APK on my Atrix, so it should work.
How do i load this onto my phone?

Do a search for ”side load app” on whatever device you have. Instructions may vary depending on what the carrier has decided to allow you to do. The APK file is the file that gets installed.

In general be careful about side loading apps that do not come from the market. It seems easy to get apps on the market (though I have not tried yet), and only costs $25 to register to upload as many as you like. It is important to know who put the app together, and why it is not on the market (in this case it is because the app is still being developed, and I wanted feedback from advanced users).

Thanks-- got it side-loaded.

Looks like a great start. I am able to import recipes in xml from my dropbox. A few thoughts:

I'd like to be able to edit the ingredients in an imported recipe without deleting the ingredient and starting over. "Save as" would be nice too.

Can you add recipe name to the top of the screen.

The preloaded recipes look to ID a creator (Mr. Whoknows ). It would be nice to be able to modify this field, and perhaps include a date too.
