New iPhone Brewing App
« on: August 01, 2012, 11:04:53 AM »
I've written a new brewing app called BrewBot.

Along with hop and yeast data/characteristics, it features 16 unique calculators.

Check it out here: http://itunes.com/apps/brewbot

I have a limited number of free download codes for anyone interested in testing & providing feedback.

Email brewbot@sphbc.org to request a code and tell me why you'd be a good candidate for testing.

Steve.  This app is basically for reference and calculations, correct? Thanks.

I'd be a good candidate because I brew a lot, and I post a lot.  However, since the app is 99 cents I can purchase it faster than emailing you for a code.  So that is my intention, although I do have to ask the wife what the stupid password is.  She's the keeper of the phone stuff, I just use them.

If this causes me to drop my Iphone in a boil kettle, I'm going to be angry.

So far its fun to play with.  I know I'll use the Plato to OG conversion since right now I have to grab my hydrometer for that.

You misspelled refractometer, theres an extra "m".

Will it work on iPod or iPad?  I have one of each but the iPhone is the wife's (although I get the bill...)
She is reluctant to leave it home so I can brew.

I'm running it on my iPad.  The display is iPhone size, but it works fine.  Steve has said he's working on an iPad version.

In perusing the hops section, when I click on Spalt it kicks me out of the program every time.  None of the others do this.

Thanks for picking that one up and the typos I missed.

I appreciate the feedback.

There will be an update in a few weeks. The review process takes some time.

redbeerman-

Yes, just a calculator and reference app.

The goal is to have the next major release (a few months out at least) do recipe formulation, but probably only on the iPad.

gmac-

As Denny mentions, it does run on the iPad as an iPhone app, but really was only designed for portrait mode, so won't behave all that well in landscape.

And yes, after swatting bug and cleaning up typos, the next step will be to make it a universal app to take full advantage of the iPad screen size and functionality.

Steve, I just tried the strike temp calc.  After filling in the info and hitting the calculate button, nothing happened.

Denny-

It works on my iPhone.

I'll have to try it on my iPad later. I don't have it with me right now.

It won't spit out a number unless you have all the input fields (Grain Temp, Grain Weight, Water Ratio, and Target Temp) populated.
