Tea Apps for the Phone- do you use any?
No, but use evernote to keep notes, particularly evernote with webclipper to export easily from the site.
one thing, when you write a steepster tasting note on the iphone (using safari) can you adjust the rating scale? Maybe there is a trick, but so far twice I have tried I have not been able to change it on the phone. I had commited and wrote the review and published it just the same with the “wrong” rating and then when i could I changed the numerical rating using the computer.
In order to get the slider to accept a rating in iOS you have to just touch it in the area where you want the rating to be. If it’s off of where you want to be, you can’t touch too close to where you touched before, you have to touch somewhere far away from your desired rating and then back to your desired rating. It’s tough because you never know what numerical score you’re getting! I usually don’t bother adjusting until I’m back at a computer, either.
In Pursuit of Tea has an app, which has good descriptions of various teas as well as a programmable timer. I used it a lot while I was still learning about different teas. Admittedly, it discusses the teas that you can then order from In Pursuit of Tea, right from the app, but still… Highly recommended.
For any newcomers, mighty timer is still around – http://mightytimer.com/
I do use the App Tea Collection and Inventory which is only available for Android phones like Samsung.
Weird – can’t find the teavana app in the app storeanymore. Did they get rid of it?
