Default BBQ Android App Just Released

Hi Folks - we have been using an Android app we developed over the summer and got most of the kinks worked out so decided to put it on the Android market. Since we are doing this mostly for fun and not to make cash (at least for now) we are offering it for free fully functional and no ads (limited time until we see how things go).

We put the details on the website and android page if you would like to try it or see what it offers. It was originally intended primarily for temp control integration but as we started using it, we use it even without the temp control for tracking our practice cooks and comp cooks and really has worked well for organizing our notes, pictures, scores, etc... So you do not need a temp control device to get some great benefit from it. If you dont like it, just uninstall Nothing lost.

But... if you do have a BBQ Guru WIFI, you must try it as it is really pretty bada$$ and takes the guru wifi to another level

All I ask, if you do try it, since we are doing this for free and as sort of a thank you for all the help the brethren forum has provided, please give us a friendly android rating and/or a facebook like or something.

Dont hesitate to shoot us an email with any issues or thoughts on how to improve it. We enjoy doing this stuff.

A couple screens below, but like I said, either of the below websites will give you details on the functionality, how to download, and more screen shots.

Website: http://www.thepitpal.com
Android App: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...com.bdm.pitpal

It absolutely amazes me how the technical age is becoming such a part of the humble art of BBQ.

You sure this app doesn't phone home with all our BBQ notes and tricks? haha

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

I don't have any android devices but I think this thread persuaded me to get one. Just hope it stays free until santa has been. Thanks for doing this.

Thanks, you tech. guys and gals amaze me everyday. Yes I own a phone but I much prefer the good old bbq stare. That would be when the wife walks out the door and I'm sitting in my chair with a cold one in my hand with that glazed over look in my eyes staring at my smoker. I do see the value in what you did here but I prefer my bbq hobby a little more old school. Good job though.

First of all, Thank you for developing this.

I don't have a Guru, but it sounds like you can still use the app to log cooks, etc. I don't normally do that, but I really should. I think I am going to download the app and try it out.

Thanks
