Beersmith Mobile iPhone/iPad Bugs/Feature Requests
« on: May 13, 2013, 09:54:20 AM »
Below is a list of bugs and/or feature requests.

1. When you click "Cancel" while editing a recipe, profile, etc all changes are lost. The app should detect changes were made and ask the user if he/she wants to abandon those changes. If no, the user should be placed back in the edit screen where he/she can press save.
2. When a user edits a profile within a recipe those edits only effect the profile used by the recipe. The app should ask the user the if he/she wants to save the profile changes to the My Profile section.
3. When a user views a profile within a recipe and then clicks "Store in My Profiles" a copy of the profile is added to the profiles list. If a profile with the same name already exists a second copy of the profile with the same name is added. The app should detect a profile with the same name exists and ask if the user wants to overwrite the existing profile or change the name.  This may only be a user for new users while they are zeroing in the profiles. Once the profiles settle down there may be no need to edit the profile within the recipe (of course there is a button there to support that).
4. When a user copies a recipe to the cloud or copies a recipe from the cloud to the local folder a copy of the recipe is added to the appropriate list. If a recipe with the same name already exists a second copy of the recipe with the same name is added. The app should detect a recipe with the same name exists and ask if the user wants to overwrite the existing profile or change the name.
5. There is no method to copy a recipe.  Right now I exploit the fact that copying to cloud and copying back will make a second copy of a recipe. If item #4 above is changed there will not be a mechanism in the app to copy a recipe.  A recipe copy feature would be very useful to speed recipe entry when only minor changes are being made from an existing recipe.
6. Inventory management would be great. Keeping track of inventory on hand helps when developing a recipe and when shopping.
7. Fermentation/Keg calendar notices would be great.  It would be nice to get an alert when it is time to move to secondary, add dry hops, bottle/keg, drink (force carb time is complete).
8. A screen which shows a list of status of all recipes in progress. This could be a simple list of all beers by name, current state, and date of next step (ex. Bottle on 6/1/2013).

Thanks for the great app.
