App Reviews

  • Dumped all my data

    First BeerSmith experience. I bought this 2 days ago. I used it to record my last 2 brew days I did an American IPA and a British Ale. I opened the app this morning to review my data and got a script full error and all my stored data was gone. Waste of $8 and 2 brew days of data. Please fix or give back my money. Garbage review until it gets fixed.
  • No desktop sync

    This app gets dinged heavily for not having any sort of sync between the desktop version. Yes, there is a cloud feature, but is is expensive (the free version only allows 15 recipes). For the same or lower price there are other solutions that allow you to easily keep every device up to date. It’s too bad, because BeerSmith is so widely used and provides so many useful tools. The other issue is that it just looks odd on iOS. (Same on the Mac). Understandable because it’s cross platform, but I wish there was more of an effort to look native.
  • Lots of Potential but...

    I have several brewing apps and wish one would push themselves to be the best because all are lacking something. Strengths: Great for recipe design. Adjustable parameters to dial in predictive brewing. Weaknesses: Poor app for the brew day to take you through the process. Poor brew history logging. It should be automatic rather than a manual clunky process. The bottom line is the app needs a total makeover. The developer should hire someone in the biz to make the app intuitive.
  • Great tool with a few missing features

    This is a one stop shop for home brewing, and a steal at this price as it's nearly as capable as the desktop app. Made my first all-grain brew day even easier than my previous partial mash brews where I worked off a paper recipe and hand calculations. A few things I'd like to see, though, that would make it 5 stars and worth easily double: - Become a more iOS native app. Specifically swipe gestures for faster navigation, split screen support on iPad, and better use of landscape orientation on iPad. - A brewers log function, to keep notes on brews after brew day. I use a Numbers sheet for this now, but it would seem to fit well in this app. - A shopping list or a way to export ingredients lists to Reminders or something similar.
  • Great app. Works wonderfully

    I have been a home brewer for years. This app really does the job. I wish the developers would add a function to add pictures. I do a lot of documentation with pictures. And to have it built in the app would be great.
  • Missing some important things

    Overall this app is okay... but it's missing some of those "no-brainer" type things that should absolutely be included in a mobile app. My biggest issue: why is inventory and shopping list not available? I would think that would be one of the most beneficial things to have on your phone. I'm out at the Homebrew shop picking up some stuff... and I forget if I indeed have that 8oz of specialty malt I need... this app is entirely useless here.
  • Essential Tool

    I don't normally write reviews, but I must for this app. I have been using BeerSmith since I started Home Brewing. The app is loaded with essential information. Nearly a one stop app. Brad, the author has ported a mountain of knowledge into this app. It's a bargain for the price. It helped me better understand the numerous variables in brewing. Cheers!
  • Needs some improvements

    I love using BeerSmith on my Mac, but the mobile version really needs some more of the features that are only available on the computer version.
  • Great app, but needs just a tad more...

    I love this app, and I use it a lot when I'm at work and have an idea for a recipe. That being said I can't always make the recipe I want because the mobile app doesn't always have an ingredient that I want to use. I wish there was a way to do the add-ons like the desktop version. I know there is a work around to get ingredients and profiles on the mobile app by saving them from a recipe made on the desktop version, but that is a pain and doesn't mean I will have an ingredient I want in the future. As of now I have to write in the notes section to add a missing ingredient to the recipe when I get home to my laptop. If there was a way to sync ingredients and profiles from the desktop to mobile over the cloud server that would be great, or an option for add-ons in the mobile app. If the session data was as in-depth as the desktop version and I could match the add-ons to my desktop version easily, this would be a 5 star app for sure. *update* Another set of features that are on the desktop that would be great to have included on the mobile app is the shopping list and inventory. Making the shopping list and inventory sync to the cloud so they are available in your pocket when you are out shopping would be extremely helpful.
  • Much improved still needs something

    I got this app when it first came out and I was very disappointed with the lack user friendliness. Customer service was great and returned my money. I decided to give it another try and I am very happy with the changes. BeerSmith mobile is seamlessly integrated with the desktop version and allows full recipe creation and editing on a mobile device. The cloud sharing is great. The only thing I wish this app had is a way to track batch stages, something that showed a calendar that would notify you when the stage (secondary, cold crash, carbonation) is due. Competitors have this function and it is the only thing that they do better. Great job beer smith!
