So just played around with it and had the crash as well. Think I fixed it. Just updated with the fix, let me know if that works now

Oddly when I get the force close I don't have a report button. I've seen it before on other apps that have crashed but not this time. The error says com.brewbuddy stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. Force close is the only option. If no one else is having this problem it must be something with my phone. Thanks for trying.

Sweet glad its working for you now, hope you are enjoying it

So After a little over a month since I released it has a decent number of installs (around 500) but Im hoping to increase that number, anybody have any free/really cheap ideas on how to increase the number of installs?

One of the big things is for those using it to rate it, as the more positive reviews the higher on the search results and the more likely for people to find it. Trying to get it higher on the list because currently the older apps are taking over the first page of results, and they havent been updated in over a year for the most part

Really like the app, but I cannot use it until it is able to separate out the recipes in a standard BeerSmith recipe file. Meaning not forcing me to export my recipes all the time. The ideal solution would be syncing my beersmith recipes folder with dropbox. Then no matter what changes I made in beersmith it would be automatically synced with dropbox and Brewaide. I think if you had a prompt after opening a beersmith recipe file that contains multiple recipes for the user to choose which recipe they want this would be a very awesome and useful app.

Cheers!

I have been working on a way to implement this, but the problem arises with the fact that depending on how many recipes you have in the file it can be very slow and inefficient to get all the data. Not only that but updating the recipe with measurements becomes a lot more complex as well as saving previous recipe.

I have been playing with it and while it is a pretty simple task to allow you to pick which recipe when opening up, it causes many troubles on the rest of the functions and makes the rest of the work too complicated to make it worth it. Also with just the 30 recipes I have it takes a good 5 seconds to open up the file and give you the option to pick a recipe

It would be so much nicer if beersmith saved the recipes as individual files instead of as one big file but have to make due with what is available.

Question for the Users of BrewAide:

I have been looking/implementing the ability to handle the default recipe file from BeerSmith (as requested by a few people). Here is the solution I am determining is the most efficient/capable: I currently have it to where if you select a recipe file that has more than one recipe in it the app loads them and gives you a popup to select which recipe to view. Then shows that recipe.

The question is with lots of recipes saved the amount of time it takes to load the recipes becomes quite long, for example with 30 recipes its taking my tablet (which would take longer on phones) about 5 seconds to load it. Is this feature still worth using? Now im working on making it so once the file is loaded (either on startup or once selected, if you select it again it wont reload it and already have it in memory)

Let me know, as I wont release the update until I get a clear decision. This will not effect the ability to open single recipe exports and will still work the same on those and BeerXML (which does anyone know if you can export multiple BeerXML recipes?)

Thank You
