Does anyone know if the mobile app is worth it as a stand alone app or is it best as an add on to the desktop version?

it doesn't have half the features of the desktop app. "worth it" would depend on your situation.

I have both versions. If I could only have one, it would be the desktop version.

I think it is worth it. It is being improved all of the time. Plus, it is built by Brad Smith who is home brewer and a nice guy. Beersmith is not written by a huge software company. I like to support him since he has given so much back to the community. Plus the program is really good.

I have both also. Desktop is more full featured, but having it on a tablet on brew day sure is handy.

Hopefully the mobile version will catch up, but its still a good piece of brewing software.

I have both but typically only use the app. It has tons of features but it took me a long time to learn them. I would say go ahead and get the app because you won't regret it. Then, if you want more features, you could the more expensive PC version later.

The downside to the app in my experience is that when you hit any button, there is a delay before any action. It runs a little but slow. That irritates me but I still say it's worth it.

What device are you running it on, not to meaning to be rude I just wanted to see if the lag was hardware or software related

No rude at all...

I have an iPhone 4 (not even the 4s) and am not using the newest iOS 7; I have whatever the prior OS was. It has happened since I first downloaded the app. Maybe other people don't have the same difficulty.

I'm thinking of getting it for my galaxy s4 and apps that lag like that drive me nuts. I just ordered the iPhone 5s for my other half, she too still has the Iphone 4 (until Wednesday)
