But, if it works as advertised, it looks to be worth it. I like the interface and features and will probably give it a shot, but I do have a question...
Does it require a connection to the Internet or will it work either over a local wifi network (my own access point in the trailer) or in ad hoc mode (iPad and CyberQ only)?
I works over it's own wifi on the cyberQ. One MAJOR FLAW with the cyberQ, is that it hardly wants to transmit when it's close to metal. Yes, I know, all pits are made of metal, and this thing needs to be close to the pit out of nature of a guru, so I hope Guru gets this issue worked out. I have my smoker outside, and I have my Ipad in the fifth wheel, so since there's a ton of interference to the guru->Ipad, I have a router in my trailer, and my I.T. guy set it up for me.
I've heard that Guru has made some improvements in the cyberQ over the past year, but I don't know what those are. Basically, if you can get the CyberQ to connect to the Ipad, then the cybercook program will work.
$9.99 may be a little high compared to the common priced app, but really.. games, etc. run $4.99 on up, and this tool is actually really useful compared to a lot of apps out there that are similarly priced just for entertainment. I first told him he should charge $20, but he didn't want to. Knowing what I know now, I'd pay $20 for it. Also, I know he has put in a lot of time programming this app, and putting up with all my suggestions
.. $9.99 is more than fair in my opinion.
Just in the nature of things, there will be a few people who won't like it for whatever reason, but the ones that do, will find it's 10 bucks well spent.
I am looking forward to hear what people think. If you are still on the fence about it, I will be using it all this season too, so if you see me out there, ask me about the program and I'll show it to you.
