Subject: Coffee Roasting Apps?
 

I just developed an iOS Coffee Roasting App for custom data logging of time/temp/events. I developed it primarily for people who don't have probe interfaces that can bluetooth or connect in anyway to roasting software... which makes it easy for recording events and exporting your roast profile. Just wondering what people are doing for logging their roasts? Seems like software like RoastMaster is nice, but I didn't find it easy to log my temps without a specific probe link.

You can check out more info on the app I developed here: Click Here (www.thecoffeecompass.com)
or you can check out the landing page for the app itself here: http://www.roastwatchapp.com/

It looks interesting but, alas, everyone I know and myself use Android.

I use roastmaster. It's not hard to enter data manually. Not sure why this app would be any easier.
Also, for $10 it offers way more including tracking of bean inventory and different roaster parameters and profiles.

Also, I defer to the moderator, but you probably are supposed to post this in the vendor section.

Barry, I'm new to these threads, so I'm not sure how I would move this thread to the vendors sections. My bad. Either way, I wrote this app for me and my friends who roast on a hottop. Roastmaster's interface lends itself to thermocouple probe hookups and is really nice in that regard. RoastWatch is meant to maximize manual speed logging of temps with corresponding "duration into roast". It is less like a roasting command center, and more like an simple tool to help a home roaster log their roast curves. It allows you to log temps/times/events extremely fast. I'd be happy to give you a promo code if you wanted to try it out, but you seem satisfied with Roastmaster, and for good reason! I'm glad it gets so much usage. You can email me here if you'd like: roastwatch(at)gmail.com

Happy roasting!
