I have been using this for years and I love it. Any chance of an iwatch app coming for manual data logging?

I've got a small roasting business and this is bar-none the best app and tool to do what I do. It'd be great to have a way to also communicate with others in this business and possibly be able to even offer coffee to others. Thanks to the developer! This is a great app!!

I home roast with a Hottop roaster which I have added 2, (K-type) thermocouple heat probes through the bean chute. I purchased the Thermoworks BlueTherm which my two probes plug into. The BlueTherm sends the temps via bluetooth to my iPad running Roastmaster to log the two temps as the roast it in progress. This works very well indeed. Also the myriad of features Roastmaster sports. Inventory, cuppings with time stamp, blending. But the roast in progress graph page is outstanding. You can watch delta rate of temp rise, time since first crack, temp projection markers for temps, you can scroll through pervious roasts which will underlie the current roast in progress for comparison. I also have fan and power settings I can add on the fly with a handy pop-up keypad. This keypad also works with no data logging for temps. Tops scores for me. Incredible connivence having my entire coffee world on the iPad. I roast almost every day.

I've been roasting coffee for a few months now, first in popcorn poppers and now in a Behmor home roaster. This app seemed like a good addition to my toolset. After having used it for several months, run 40+ roasts through it, logged 30+ cuppings, etc. I'm still finding awesome features! It amazes me how thorough it is. Almost every piece of my roasting/brewing operation can be managed with Roastmaster (the only thing it doesn't have is a brew timer feature – but there are other good apps like Bloom that can give you those features). I have to admit, as a web/user interface designer, I was a bit skeptical about the app's design from the screenshots. After having used it for a while, though, I've fallen in love with the interface. Believe me, it's VERY well done. Most features are very discoverable and for those that aren't, you can browse the voluminous help documents available from within the app. One of my favorite things about this app is the way you can associate everything together. For instance, I can log a cupping and associate it with a specific roast (not just a bean). As I roast, it tracks my green coffee inventory to let me know what I have left "in stock." The relational database model they talk about is super effective and well-implemented here. If you are a hobbyist (or pro) and want to take your roasting up a few notches, buy this app! It's worth every penny.

Using this app with Bluetherm Duo and my Ipad while roasting on my Huky 500 makes roasting much more pleasurable. The only trouble is I went with this to avoid buying a laptop for use with another system. But, I found myself competing with my wife for the Ipad. So, I ended up buying another Ipad.

Oh, Danny. The new baby is BEEOOTEEFULL! I can't wait to play with all the new toys and gadgets, and . . . Blahblahblah! Nice work again! John Just following up after a few weeks; this latest update is the bomb! A cut above the rest! From the delta projections, to the ability to follow saved profiles with absolute consistency, I can't give enough praise! Great app! All the new features in the active roast console are unbeatable. Best $$ I've spent in a long time!

I use this app for all our data logging at my small roasting company! We have it set up for both our production and sample roasting and could not be more pleased. I highly recommend this app to everyone!

I've been home roasting for several years. After tracking everything by memory or notes pinned to the bulletin board, Rainfrog's Roastmaster is an absolute treat. Creating blends by percentage, tracking settings and results for each roast, and having the inventory automatically adjust with each roast are all time-savers, and worth the little bit you'll invest in this useful app. If you roast - get it!
dave2bass's Review of RoastmasterReviewed on 11/29/18 12:39 PM
Roastmaster is an absolutely excellent app! To be honest, I was pretty sceptical and never pay even close to $10 for an app... ever. I thought that the screen shots were pretty but I feared that the app itself would be just 'pretty' without being a robust and scalable tool. I was totally and completely wrong. I started home roasting several years ago and am now in the process of launching my own coffee roasting business. I used Behmor Thing for a long time since one of my roasters is the Behmor. While that application is good and provides many similar functions(roasting, inventory, cupping etc.), Roastmaster is 1000X better. It is scalable and flexible - all data can be edited (in real time for the most part). I needed something that would help track roasts (obviously), track inventory, track tasting from batches (or groups of batches), handle blends, etc. Blends can be created from green beans or roasted beans either by weight or %. You can create temp curves, profiles, add vendors & costs paid for beans. I can't image much that a home roaster or small shop roaster would need that this app does not provide. I've roasted <30 times with it and every day I find more I like it more and more. Aside from the roaster itself this app has become an essential tool for me. Little parts of the UI that I didn't realize were functional... are. I found a little roast timer today by accident that you can set on the fly anywhere in the roast cycle, useful for multitaskers so you don't miss a critical moment like 1C. I love that there is integtration with Dropbox. This means that with a few very simple steps I can roast with my iPhone even though typically roast with my iPad. Simply export the current database to Dropbox (from the iPad), then navigate to dropbox and open it on the iPhone (It promtps you to open it replacing the current data on that device or open it along side) and you're off and roasting with your other device. Brillant! This is quite literally the best $10 I've spent in recent memory. For the record I am not employed or affiliated by the developer at all. I'm just a happy roaster =)
