Have a question?
Love the concept, but unusable as a scale—after a minute, it starts counting backwards. It's basically drawer fodder now.
@Phillip You can download the android app on google play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details…
where can I get the app for my android?
@Justin Thank you! We wouldn't make it without you all!!!
@philip Yeah! That's something very interesting! Definitely looking into it!
Congrats on the SCAA award!
Hi Aaron. I used the scale everyday and like it more and more. I was discussing it with my friends during a coffee gathering today and we thought that you might consider adding another thing in your next edition(if you're planning to do so) - a temperature probe so that we can monitor the brewing temperature which is part of our usual brewing profile.
Yes, mine too counts down. It seems to be a heat issue as my friends was doing the same thing and he put a cork heating pad on it and it seems to have stopped the issue.
@Jacy I've sent you an email, could you take a look and help me identify the counting down? Thanks.
@Josh Sorry for the inconvenience. I am sending you an email regarding this!
Hello - our scale is also counting down when weight when adding water. Plead advise.
Hi Aaron - I too am having problems with my scale. The first few times it worked flawlessly, but now it will count down the weight as I add water towards the end of my brewing. Please help!
@Amanda Sent you an email regarding this!
@Mike Our team is moved by your comments. Thank you, we try to do our best. Not sure if we are par with iphone but really appreciate it!
@Jason Thank you for your support! We will continue to improve the APP. Working on the android and also the new update on iOS now.
I received my scale and it's wonderful so far. Occasionally though it does this thing where it will start counting weight down as I add water and then I stop and it keeps counting down. What do I do?
Aaron, I received mine today. Thank you for doing such an amazing job on the features, design, packaging, and shipping. The level of detail you've gone to in each of these areas is amazing, and is in the same class as my latest iPhone (which is high praise)! I wasn't expecting the packaging to be so gorgeous.
Hi Aaron! First off, you guys have been terrific in terms of communication and delivering the acaia quickly, even with the hurdles! I have a question for you. Is it normal to see the ER.303 after turning the power on? It eventually goes away and the scale functions. Is this normal or does it need to be replaced?
Aaron. Nice job on this project. Got my black scale, and love it. It operates really well, and the interface is not as complicated as I thought it would be. I haven't used every feature yet, but am really impressed so far. The iOS app seems to work really well. Thank you!
Aaron, I know you are working hard to get all the scales out, and I am getting excited for mine as I read all the great comments from those that have already received theirs. I was curious, if you could check and let me know where I am at in the queue? Thanks!
hey Aaron! super excited to get the scale. Haven't received a tracking number yet.
@diane and@aarom- thanks for the help. Worked great!
just got mine and its great thanks
@Sharif Please check message! Thanks!
Stoked on getting mine, any ETA on the ones coming out to Vancouver, BC ?
@Philip Glad you like it! However, the serial number is only printed on the early birds backers. So you cannot find it!
@gregory The last batch should be on its way, we will send out shipping notice when it goes on the Fedex. Thanks for your patience, and sorry for the delay!
@J Hoss You can try to use a credit card (continuously) to swipe off the bubble from the edge. We notice that because the blue protective film we were unable to catch all the bubble when apply the protective film. Sorry for the bubble, let me know if it works.
@Lee Thank you! The list started with the early birds! I'll tell my team!
@Steve You have been a great backer, thank you so much. We will keep on improving the APP coming months, please let us know any feed backs or suggestions!
@RJ I hope you like it!
J Hoss: I also have a black model and saw air bubbles on the top. There's a second protective laminate that is much thicker. I took it off and reapplied it to the surface. It does seem to be the same type of material as a screen protector.
Hi Aaron. Remember that I had some worry about the dual display initially? After using it for some time, I want to tell you that it works like a charm and I am very happy with it. Just one minor question - I remember I read somewhere that there is a serial number printed at the bottom, but I cannot find it.
Hi Aaron. I am a non-early bird backer and am wondering if a scale has been shipped to me. Do you notify the backer before the scale is sent? Thank you!
Aaron, received my scale this evening. Arrived in perfect health and cannot wait to brew with it in the am. Minor issue(cosmetic) under the weighing platen there appears to be a couple of "air" bubbles. I have the black model. Reminds me of when I apply a screen protector to my iphone. Yes, I did remove the temporary protective laminate from the platen.
Just got my scale, it's beautiful and I can't wait to brew with it! However, I noticed that my name is not on the backers list on your website :(
Hi Aaron. I received both my white and blue scales yesterday. Both look terrific and are working fine. Great packaging! I love the look and functionality, especially the dual timer and scale reading. Wonderful job on your part and a fun project for me to have followed.
Received mine tonight. It is very beautiful. Excited to be using this!
@Will We have a S3 upgraded to android 4.3, the connection was not very stable, but it can be connected. We are still working on to see if there's a workaround. However, our main focus is to bring the Android APP 1.2 out to you asap!
@philip Yes, we need to do a better job at photo shooting! Gold is pure awesomeness!
@truman Replied in your mailbox!
@james @ashley @howard Thank you, your feed back means a lot to us and the whole project team!
So can anyone confirm that devices running 4.3 can run the app?
Aaron, my beautiful scale arrived today and I used it right away. Very, very nice. I love it.
@Will P, my 4 month old Samsung Galaxy S4 mini runs android 4.2.2 jellybean and is also incompatable. Samsung did recently announce many devices will be automatically updated with 4.4.2 Kitkat operating system soon. Hopefully this will solve our problem, although I am not sure.
The android market is saying that my Galaxy s3 is incompatible. "This app is incompatible with all of your devices."
I know you mentioned that you were having some trouble with samsung's bluetooth libraries. Are you giving up on the s3 entirely?
Received my gold version a few days ago. It looks much better in real than in the photo.

Last friday, March 21st, I received an email saying my scale had shipped, only a few hours later I received an email saying it had been delivered by Fedex. I had not been given the opportunity to chose any shipping details(like the option to require a signature upon delivery) and because of this the scale was left on my front porch and stolen. I have no way to retrieve it and have been looking forward to using it both at home and in my cafe since backing in November, is there any way i can receive (or purchase if need be) a replacement Pure White scale? It would mean the world.
Thank you for the quick reply on tweeter! The scale is nice and I'm very happy with this project. Actually this arrived sooner than other project I pledged around the same time. Solid product. Love the black scale. Thanks a lot!!
