App doesn't work
I just downloaded this app to my iPhone 7 Plus with updated iOS. In trying to open the app, all I get is a blank screen. Downloaded and installed twice. Still won't work. Five dollars wasted.
The app is designed nicely and is somewhat helpful, but there is at least one recipe that is incorrect. The "inverted" by Stumptown says to use 120 ml water for 17g coffee. This is incorrect. The water should be 220ml. I suggest this be fixed. I also suggest listing the water temperature each recipe should use since most are a little different.
Lots of recipes to try, easy to use, clear design. Not sure it's worth the $, hope they will keep updating it with new recipes
Great companion to the Aeropress
Love the app, but 3 suggestions. Please allow me to filter by type of grind as well as by my own ratings. Also let me turn off the sounds.
Great app...when it loads
This is one of my all time favorite and useful apps but I just upgraded to iPhone 7 and now this app opens to a black screen and immediately crashes. I've tried reinstalling and hard resets but nothing seems to work. Operates just fine on my wife's 7. Sadness.
Kind of like a recipe book (and brewing coach) for your AeroPress
I just picked up an AeroPress for the first time, and I have to say that I was quite skeptical about how good it would really be. I had similar questions about this app. Turns out the AeroPress is a fantastic single-cup coffee brewer, and this app is a great companion to make sure you are using it properly.
Let me just say that while I LOVE the AeroPress, I'm still a bit of a skeptic that the different brewing techniques make that much of a discernible difference. Can you taste the difference between steeping for 20 seconds and stirring versus a 60 second soak on a coarser grind? Maybe, maybe not, but it's fun to try. More importantly, the app and its series of instructions and timers are sort of like a flight manual making sure that you incorporate all the necessary steps, and don't do anything that will completely throw off the brewing process.
There's probably a few dozen recipes here, and some useful instructions on traditional vs. inverted method, grinding techniques, and water temperature. As others have noted, it would be nice to have even a 5 star rating system so I could remind myself (or see other users' opinions) of how much I liked or disliked a particular method. But it's a neat little app and it's a convenient tool to always have with you, particularly since AeroPress is so useful on-the-go.
Time For An Update
I use this almost every day and it has not crashed on me for on single second. That being said, I feel some basic features are needed, especially since myself and many other users actually paid for it. These would be clarification on the ground size as well as water temperature.
Love the app, but want 1 change! APPLE WATCH VERSION IS TERRIBLE.
This app is great and will change your life when it comes to an Aeropress. I feel like I'm walking behind the bar at a coffee shop and picking something off the menu and making it myself. Used the metric measurements for a while, but it's a little complicated. Go with simple.
Finally, one change I would like, a personal RATING system for the different types of brews. There are so many I can't keep track of which ones I like and don't like. If I could just get a simple 1-5 star report for MYSELF on the various brews that would be AWESOME.
Update: Got an Apple Watch and was excited to use this app with it, but it is TERRIBLE. A) it has NO vibrations/dings to let you know when to change actions. B) if you stop looking at your watch the screen goes black and then when you look again the timer gets all screwy and then you have no idea where you're at in the brew or what our supposed to be doing or how much you're supposed to pour. The iPhone app is great, but if I could rate the Apple Watch app I'd give it zero stars because it's not even worthy to be called an app.
Great, but I would love an addition
This app is great for beginners. I got this as soon as I got my first AeroPress. It makes it so much easier to learn and the recipes are great.
I would love to see a rating system added though. I've made all but a few of the recipes. I've liked all of them but one or two. So when I'm searching for a recipe to make, I can't remember the ones I didn't like.
Overall it's well worth the money!
Great app and really helps make great coffee
Well designed and good interface.
Could use a little TLC for the Apple Watch app since it doesn't seem to use the new features of watchOS 3 and the timer gets off.
But the phone app is awesome.
Use every morning
This app has helped me keep a consistent brew and I experiment with the different recipes based on the grind of my coffee. I really wish it had a cheat sheet: light roast/best water temp, dark roast/best water temp because that makes a difference too whether your grounds are coarse or fine. So much science to it!
Exactly what I needed
Great, simple and functional. I use it every morning to have great consistent coffee from my aeropress with minimal effort.
