I've been using the one at Smooth graphics, ton of features and it's free.

I've only used Beersmith 2. There is a bit of a learning curve but once you understand it you'll find it's a pretty slick program, I've scaled a couple of recipes to 10 gallon batches from 5 gallon and they turned out perfect. Can't really go wrong for the price.

Just sayin' - but whatever works for you...
I think you have so many "Help with Beersmith" threads for two reasons, it is more thorough than most (if not all) of the alternatives and, probably the main reason, there are a lot of people using it. As far as sharing recipes across different platforms goes, I simply have the program save its settings to a dropbox directory and I have access anywhere that I want. I only upload a recipe to the beersmith cloud (the lure of which generally eludes me) when I want to have access from my phone. You get a small number of free uploads.

All of that said, I don't use Beersmith's yeast or water tools. There are much better alternatives for both out there.
