    This is a great app if you need to calculate dough recipes with any kind of preferment. It’s explicitly designed for sourdough starters, but it’s also usable for biga calculations. I especially like how easy this app makes it to scale my recipes. You can tell a baker made this app.

  • OK app. Jun 3, 2020

    I recently purchased this app and quickly found a few items that would enhance the ease of use. I am use to using Excel for all my recipe calculations. First, since it is database driven, an extensive list of baking ingredients available by drop down would make it much easier to input new recipes. Now, you have to add each ingredient separately, unless you copy another recipe. Secondly, the ability to sort or list the ingredients in a recipe in the order desired. When I bake bread, I normally follow a set list of ingredients in the order I want to include them into the mix. At present, the app list them in the order it wants and I find that a bit irritating, not intuitive and prone to miss an ingredient. Third, have the ability to turn off all the extra bells and whistles, notices, explanations and other stuff that is on the page. A user should be able to setup the page in sections by turning a section on or off. For instance, I don’t need the alarm section on the recipe page unless I’m going to use them. Forth, there are several processes in the app that are not very user friendly or intuitive. They work, but until you figure out what the app wants, it can be a bit frustrating. I’ll most likely use the app for now, but will continue to look for updates or a better app.

    This app is a comprehensive, well thought out, and easy to use aid for either the home or professional baker. It allows for easy recipe scaling, adding customized steps like autolyzing, soaking, and fermentation stages like levains or poolish. You can even keep track of recipe variations. Buy it, you will not regret it!

    This app allows very accurate hydration calculations for bread recipes. It accounts for the water needed for inclusions including any soakers needed for dry fruit, seeds etc. The developer is very responsive and offers an information packed website with recipes and tutorials. Multiple stages including levains, poolish, sourdoughs etc are possibile. Timers, personalized recipes and notes are supported. A number of starter recipes are included. This s the best bread baking app available. Buy it, you won’t regret it!

    I found for the few times I bake its been a great 'go to' tool to refresh my skills and keep me on track. The support for troubleshooting and general enquiry is swift and detailed, especially in my experience with the sourdough breads. I look forward to trying your other recipes. Well done bread boss!
  • great app but needs some improvement Aug 8, 2020

    I've downloaded other apps and concluded that for the price and all the provided features, Bread Boss is worth the price. Although it's not as aesthetic as Rise, it has much more features offered with proper calculations at a much cheaper price. However, there are some things this app can improve on. I took one star away because the app tutorial got me spinning. It made me very confused, and took me a while to figure out how to operate the app. I also wished that there were explanations on how the calculations were made because the percentages made me very confused and I had to hand calculate to figure out the math. The different stages were also a bit confusing because different terminology was being used. For example, what is usually referred to as a fed and active starter or levain is called "sourdough" in the app. Perhaps this should be explained (maybe a page for vocabs?). I took another star away because it doesn't give me the option to define my starter's hydration. The app makes the starter, or sourdough, a stiff starter at 50% hydration. I wish that users can changes their starter's hydration. Another thing about starter is that the app doesn't let you adjust how much starter you have, how much you fed it, and how much you used. If you enter that you fed your 15g starter 40g flour and 40g water, the app automatically assumes you uses 80g of starter although you could use less or more. Overall, it is a really nice and feature-full app, but the different functions and terminologies needs to be explain better.

    This app is great for both home bakers wanting to learn about sourdough and professional bakers wanting a place to store recipes and make life easier with the calculations being done for you and handy alarms to keep you on track, great support from the developers too.

    My search for something to replace my BBGA-style spreadsheets continues. This app gets the math and method right, but it has an extremely poor UI. It's actually worse than just using a spreadsheet!

    BreadBoss is ideal not only for storing recipes but for helping you bake better bread. It is easy to input your recipe, either in weight of ingredients or in Baker's percentages. In multi-stage recipes, you can enter the duration of each stage and it will compute the schedule and set up alarms to alert you to the end of each stage. BreadBoss is an implementation of a professional baker's approach and taught me a number of things that have improved my bread. You can't go wrong with this.

    If you have been making bread for some time and want to up your game then this app is going to help you a LOT. The app comes with some preloaded recipes that you can use as is our you can modify them to suit you. And of course you can enter new recipe. It is actually very easy to create a recipe using the template provided. You can add or remove ingredient. You can tweak the proportion of each ingredient as a percentage of the total flour (this is how professional baker do it ). It can be confusing to start with but once you have mastered it, there is no going back. There is also lots of help inside the app to explain it all. But the real magic to me is that you can enter your existing tested recipe. To avoid the headache of working out proportion there is a "PAUSE" mode that will allow you to enter each ingredients using its weight as used in your recipe. Once you "unpause", the app will then work out for you the correct percentage. Always done 1 bread at a time but suddenly need to make 2 or 3 or more. No problem! just tell the app how many loaves you need and it will adjust the amount automatically for you A must have application if you are serious about your bread
