    I use the brew pal app for recipes, brew timers, ferment timers, etc. Cheap and easy to use. Recent versions can even export and import recipes.

    I use BrewPal and SpargePal on brew day. SpargePal is my go-to for sparge volumes and temps. It’s pretty good, and I normally hit my targets when I remember to enter the grain temp.
    BrewPal is OK. I like how it stores all the info, gives you the anticipated IBU, color, style, etc. Some things are annoying and you can’t tweek anything once you are brewing the recipe.
