Very good The app is excelent so far, I love it. The display of the temperature is very nice. But I'm not giving a full 5 stars because the current notification is too weak and easy to miss: it would be best if it rang multiple times and vibrate as well. Steepster does this; I think they use the system's notification - which in my case is set to audio and vibrations.
No vibrate only mode The app doesn't have or has a very well hidden vibrate only mode. So, every time I brew tea at the office, the entire workplace is alerted when my tea has finished steeping. This is highly disruptive and makes the app virtually useless. Use a basic timer instead.
No notification when finished? This app looks great and has some nice features, but it has a fatal flaw in that there doesn't seem to be any way to turn on a sound or vibration alert when the time is up, meaning you have to keep an eye on the timer while your tea steeps - no good for a multitasker! EDIT: it will play an alarm as the app isn't active. I'd still like to see a more comprehensive general app settings area, though.
Pros: Simple and effective interface. The ability to preset timers for different teas and label them, and also add notes on the temperature. Cons: Unwieldy timer input. No way to change notification loudness or switch to vibrate only. Notification sometimes doesn't show or sound. Notification doesn't ring unless the app is active in the foreground.
Really Nice Compared to the others, it's a lot better. UI is nice. But there is a problem when you're out of the app and then it doesn't notify you. I would love to costumize the backround and alarm.
Update: no longer well with Nougat, crashes constantly, all teas are now under the same type/name when selected safe for the time and alarm very disturbing at work. Sometimes goes off 2-3 mins after the actual time due. Unfortunately unreliable and unpredictable now. The app is great for recording many types of teas and customise them too to your own taste and the counter is great. However, the app lacks the vibration mode as a notification mode, does not ring when app not active (screen off) so you may steep your tea longer than needed unless you watch the screen for the entire time and rings despite the silent mode on so it disturbs my colleagues at work. Room for improvement to become perfect...
