  • Useful but getting dated Mar 25, 2019

    By WeissXB
    I use this in conjunction with the desktop BeerSmith application. It is really useful on brew day, especially the timer. That said, it is really looking dated. Hasn’t been updated for the screen size of current generation devices, etc.

  • Great potential Jul 9, 2013

    By Jcironhide
    This app has some great potential as soon as the big are worked out of it. I just upgraded my lite to the full version. I would have liked to see the icon change to the full version after doing so. It would have probably benefited the app to run a beta for more user input and fix programming issues. Other than that I am extremely excited to write recipes on the fly, which will be so much better with easy accessibility.

  • Better than I expected Oct 19, 2012

    By Imagerium
    I've used Beersmith for over a year and I'm still amazed how powerful it is and how much better my beer has improved because of it. I have been waiting for the mobile versions to come out so I can make more effective use of the Cloud. What is very cool about the app are the Tools. Even though you can't (yet) edit recipes, you can make mash & infusion calculations on the fly. That alone is worth the price of the app. Thanks Brad! Looking forward to the full version!

    Been using desktop app for a while and so thought I would supplement this with the mobile app. Both are excellent. Would not have brewday without. Love the way styles can be linked to the BJCP and how profiles can be set up. A lot of love and thought has gone into this app. Simple to use and yet also very clever. Only (crucial) think missing is ability to export to xml as I need this to load into my Grainfather app....still the desktop app does do this.This app otherwise compliments perfectly.

  • Great App Feb 11, 2013

    By ClayWA
    Don't know why people are mad at this app. As a long time BeerSmith user this is the perfect companion. Read the description. It's not meant to stand alone. Quit being cheep and then complaining because this isn't what you are looking for. If you have BeerSmith on your Computer this thing is awesome. Don't know how many times I've forgotten my recipe and wished I had it at the LHBS. This makes it that much easier. Plus the timer is great. Awesome app. Can't wait till the full version is out.

    I now get the "restart your app" message that has been there forever now and I've just hit ok and moved on but now the app is stuck there and it's not functional. This bug has been documented for a very long time and had not been resolved. It's very disappointing to say the least. The software was good when it worked and now it's a steaming pile that I sadly spent money on.

    It allows me to see my recipes so I don't have to run back to my computer or waste paper printing them, but there are 3 major things wrong with this app: 1. It never gets updates 2. There should be a better system than this lite/pro setup. I already own the full fledged beersmith application on desktop, why force me to go back to my computer and re-cloud upload my recipe any time I need to make a tweak? Perhaps email address or key validation in-app could show who owns the desktop app and the "full" app

  • Not worth getting Feb 2, 2013

    By ding_apple
    This app is not worth getting. I feel that it is a companion app for the desktop version and not good enough as a stand alone app. Wish I could get my money back. Since I don't want to fork out the money for the desktop version I am out of luck. Don't bother with this unless you have beersmith on you computer. Very disappointed. Wish they would make this more obvious in the app description. I found more functionality from cheaper apps out there.

  • Lite, Too Lite. Jan 6, 2013

    By bshegg
    Pros: Beersmith Lite has many useful tools in calculators integrated and allows you to search beersmith recipes and is a great resource and would/should be a great free app. Cons: No deeper functionality, it is not possible to create or even edit your recipes which seems absurd. Choose the more expensive alternative to beersmith on the App Store and don't waste your money here until they add some of the beersmith software features.

  • Lite is Great but Full will be better! Jan 13, 2013

    By Ryush806
    This is a great app. I especially like it because I can access my recipes that I plan to brew at work. That way when I'm taking a break I can review the recipe and think about if I want to tweak it etc. I can't wait for the full version to come out so I don't have to wait to get home to edit the recipes though!

  • Good app and good beers!! Mar 5, 2013

    By MRcleanShrek
    Overall a very good app. I works better with the computer software if your looking to change anything within the recipe unfortunately this app alone can't do it. However if your a beginner that know how to brew and are just looking for different recipes to see what you favorite tips then this is certainly the best place I have found to get those recipes!!!

  • Handy App Jan 20, 2013

    By mchaton
    I think this is a great LITE version of PC app. It is lite, so yeah, you can't edit recipe or scale. That's OK. Being able to see my recipe during brewing and not having to print out is handy. Having the calculators, tools, recipes, etc. is well worth $4. And, I do look forward to having the ability to edit or scale when the Lite grows-up to the Full version. Good job!

  • Good resource Mar 8, 2013

    By Miscman23
    Overall this app is a handy resource tool for calculations and recipe inspiration. Only downside I've found is in majority of the recipes they don't add great instructions for the brew such as amount of time in fermentation, secondary and in some cases the recipe calls for kegging and doesn't give you a sugar to add for bottle carbonation. But those things can be found by trial and error would just be nice to take out the guess work.

    I get the same bug with the upgrade. makes it unusable and there is no reference to a fix on the website. I should never have purchased the upgrade, worked perfectly until then.

  • Good but would like more funtionality Feb 27, 2013

    By WestCoaster fan
    Requires the desktop client to enter new recipes. Should be part of the beer smith app. App does work well at brew time providing timers, ingredients and amounts. Timers work even if iPod powers down.
