Pros and cons of BeerSmith Mobile Home Brewing app for iPhone and iPad

BeerSmith Mobile Home Brewing app good for

Great app for beer making.. should have a place to inform the OG achieved to calculate the brewhouse efficiency, and FG to Real ABV...
This is an amazing asset to my brew day and with developing recipes.
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!
I dont 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. Its a bargain for the price. It helped me better understand the numerous variables in brewing. Cheers!
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.
Hello, good program, but I cant find "dilution tool" like on PC version. It would be fine if you realize it.

Some bad moments

Overall this app is okay... but its 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. Im 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.
Perfect example why wrapping your web app in an iOS app is a terrible idea. Slow, very bad UX, just all around weird and not fun to use. 2 stars because the system is actually quite good, but the iOS "app" is really, really bad. Developers should be ashamed to put this web crap out...
I had high hopes for this app. The back bone is there.it could be great. Its just slow when you click buttons like edit and save etc.. And it is twitchy, resulting in lost recipes. Im back to excel spreadsheets now.
Powerful app but difficult to learn (and Im not new to brewing). Slow and confusing recipe entry process. Great that there is access to recipes.
This is a very disappointing app if you want to scale to a larger volume thats greater than 10 gallons. I tried everything I could to build a larger equipment profile to match my 27 gallon system. The software allowed me to create a new profile but it always defaulted to a 5 gallon batch even after entering 27 gallons.
I intended to use this app on my phone and iPad and switch seamlessly between the two. But I am unable to save recipes from the cloud from either device. Apparently, you must have the PC/Mac version to actually save recipes to the cloud, and then they can be accessed from the iOS devices. That is not a useful syncing function to me. I wish that was clear before I spent the $8 on this app...
