I should have a working iPhone version very soon. As soon as I do, i can post some links for people to download the test version. After that Android will be available shortly after. If everything goes well with the phone version, I will also release the iPad and Android tablet versions.

Thanks for all of the feedback!!

When you are ready for Android testers I can fire it up on an sgs4g (gingerbread) 2 tablets (media pad aka springboard and tf201) and my sgs3.. Lots of different devices and both major OS versions. (Oh and nook color under gb or is.) Probably not all at once though since the cyberq would die..

The iPhone and PC apps posted above look great! I'm an old Unix hacker, so I couldn't resist the temptation to attack this with a shell script. Using wget to read the raw HTML, bash to parse it, and gnuplot to render it, I produced this:

Incidentally, I tried to post the bash script that produced the chart above, but the forum server rejects it. If there's interest, I'll see if one of the forum mods can post it on my behalf.

You could stick it on pastebin, just be sure to set it to not expire.

Gosh darn you! This app may push me over the edge to buying the CyberQ. I'm surprised BBQ Guru isn't jumpin up and down about it. It's exactly this kind of easy interface that makes the difference for most non-tech types.

So why is it that Splashtop can automaticaly link between iPad and PC when on different networks and BBQ Guru CyberQ WiFi cannot? The difference is effort into making a good product. I expect that the investment by BBQ Guru involves about two weeks of competent programming at say $100 and hour; namely 80x100, or $8K tops. At $450 per cyberQ including fan or Power Raptor as I have, that translates into about 18 units; considering their profit point perhaps 36 units sold.

Appears that BBQ Guru management has indeed changed since the death of its founder.

Splash top uses tons of server-side infrastructure to make that possible. They even proxy for connections (like mobile) that don't allow incoming. How would you connect to a guru that has no outbound net connection? Totally different from the guru, although I agree they should have built all the graphing etc into the device directly..

In my world, if you like a function that another has programmed, you buy that function along with the obligation that they integrate it into the whole. BBQ Guru could have paid $8K for the function, or employed the programmers. Instead, BBQ Guru executives decided to do neither, with the result as you see.

I think there is going to be a minor explosion of mobile apps and websites amongst the bbq community that tie into this thing. I also have talked to bob a couple times and they are definitely listening to what people are asking for. Their enhancements for the first firmware update seem spot on. I know we have a couple apps in progress and I also know of another gentleman building something very sweet that ties into the guru wifi so much more to come in the near future I think. Thank the guru guys for making it so easy to integrate with.

I agree. In time it will be a good product. For now, it is a development tool.

I was about to pull the trigger on one of these. Thumbs up or thumbs down. Was it rushed to the market?
