iBrewMaster 2

The Premier Brewing Application!

 
The new and dramitally improved "iBrewMaster 2" is packed with new features, tools, and calculators and is now available for iOS!  We will continue to support iBrewMaster Original Edition for a short time during the transition to iBrewMaster 2.  We've had 3 dozen updates to iBrewMaster since it's original release almost 4 years ago....without ever charging for an update.  
 
iBrewMaster 2 is now a Universal App, capable of running on both the iPhone and the iPad, has a new and improved Mash Profile section, support for Water Profiles, a dozen stand-alone on-the-fly calculators, cost tracking support, and a whole lot more!  We appreciate all of your support over the past 4 years, and although iBrewMaster 2 is a paid update, we will continue to improve it for the next several years without any upgrade fees.  We have so much planned that we finally had to draw the line on adding new features to iBM 2 or we'd never get it out!  
 
Please continue to send us your ideas and suggestions, as most of the new features and functionality is a result of your participation!

Migrating from iBrewMaster 1?

 

To convert your original iBrewMaster database, perform the following steps:

 

1) From iBrewMaster 1, go to Setup -> Dropbox and establish a link to your Dropbox account.  Take a backup of your iBrewMaster 1 database.  This will put your original datafile in your Dropbox -> Apps -> iBrewMaster folder.  If you are migrating from an iPhone, this file will be named brewmaster.db.  If you are migrating from an iPad, this file will be named ipadibrewmaster.db. 

 

2) From iBrewMaster 2, go to Setup -> Dropbox Backup/Restore, and establish a link to your Dropbox account.  If you don't already have one, use the, "Click here for extra space courtesy of Dropbox!" to establish a new account.  Then take an initial backup of your iBrewMaster 2 database.  This will establish a folder in your Dropbox account under Apps -> iBrewMaster2.

 

3) From a home computer, connect to your Dropbox account and copy your iBrewMaster 1 database to the Apps -> iBrewMaster2 folder.  

 

4) From iBrewMaster 2, go to Setup -> Import iBrewMaster 1 Database and you should see your original iBrewMaster database in the list.  Tap on it to load it.

 

Please note:  Some users may have an issue with connecting to Dropbox from iBrewMaster 1 depending on other Dropbox apps loaded on your device.  If this happens you can download the utility http://www.i-funbox.com.  Just connect your device, run the fun box app, select iBrewMaster, then navigate to the Documents -> BrewMaster folder and download the file name from step 1 and put it in your Dropbox account under Apps -> iBrewMaster2.
