  • Updated after further use and research

    I gave this a pretty low rating upon initial use, but discovered after a bit of research that additional functionality was available and that I did not fully understand how to take advantage of add ons, etc. I do think that is still a challenge for new users and is why I continue to deduct a star, as ideally this could be made more user friendly, but it does have much of the functionality of the desktop version, which also has its quirks.
  • Inventory and Print functions needed

    Love BeerSmith. I hope the next release will have inventory functionality and the ability to print right from the phone. Other than that, I really like the program.
  • Needs some tweaks

    It would be nice to sync to the desktop version through WiFi. Also would be nice to have it default to numbers when you are in a numbers only field. Otherwise it it very useful out in the Brewery.
  • Loving this App

    I enjoy using this app. It does a great job at adding just about everything for your brew recipe. A couple suggestions: 1) Allow split view on iPads. It is frustrating when I am trying to come up with a new recipe and as i am doing research, I have to go back and forth between apps when the productivity could be higher. 2) I don’t care for the pay model that is set in place. And please allow one time purchases for phone vs iPad vs computer. Otherwise keep up the great work!
  • No desktop sync 2

    I work in a production brewery that uses desktop version. There is no way to access recipes created on the desktop version. Or be able to share those created by the app. Totally useless to our business. I hope other businesses that read these reviews are able to see this and prevent them from spending the $ on this app.
  • 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.
