BrewControl is the coffee app for your iPhone.
Why try to figure out how much water you need for a given amount of coffee every time? BrewControl will remember what coffee to water ratio you want, calculating the coffee and water weights on the fly.
Once you're ready to brew, BrewControl will manage the time as well. Keep track of brew time with a stopwatch timer, or countdown timer, depending on the brew method you select.
You can add and reorder time events, duplicate entire brew methods, and control ratios all from your iPhone. And when you're too busy brewing to take the phone out of your pocket, you can move the party to your Apple Watch. It's just that simple. That's simple, right?
* Note: This update rewrites the data underpinning Brew Control. If you have custom methods you really don't want to lose, write them down before updating.
Totally new user interface. I can't stress this enough; this is a completely new coat of paint and chassis and frame and engine and, well, you get the point. A brand new car. Brew Control is now ready for iOS7. I mean, iOS8. And soon iOS9.
Add and remove time segments. Use the last segment as a stopwatch if that wets your whistle.
Images for brew methods. That's cool.
Ratings and Reviews
Ouch! So much sadness!
Update: Calling last year's update "tragic" is only a mild overstatement. After 12 months of manually updating apps (quite a learning experience!), I accidentally updated all apps. Now I have the unintuitive bright white version of Brew Control. I could reload a backup of the last good version, but to no avail. A "feature" of the major update is that you loose all custom ratios. This is a good example of how it's dangerous to rely on hobbyist developers. -1 star.
Nov 2015: Alas! My go-to coffee ratio app has been remade into a garish cartoon that hurts my eyes. Thankfully I was able to turn off auto updates before my iPhone removed the old app. No doubt this version brings more features but its design is so misguided I will have to pass. I wish the developer well, but mostly I wish he’d get a UI design consultant.
Previous: My daily companion for more than 4 years. Unlike a lot of iOS software, this app doesn't need much in the way of updates. It's amazing as it is.
This is a great app for managing the preparation of just about every brewing method. The app has a great looking UI and works well. Recent improvements make an already great app better.
Beautiful remake of an amazing app!
This was my go to app for making all types of coffee. I was saddened when it wouldn't launch under iOS 9 and I needed to find an alternative.
Today I was thrilled to discover it has been updated and refreshed to reflect the times. Don't let the Skeuomorphism holdouts scare you off. This app is still the most flexible and useful coffee app in the store.
I would gladly pay for it again if I needed to. Worth every penny!
This upgraded design has clearly been made for elegant, simple usability. Bravo. Nice improvement (though, this app has always been useful).
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
