No specific questions, just wondering what users think of it.

Yeah, true, but in a world where most apps are a buck or two, $9.99 seems expensive.

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)?

Thanks!

I hate to admit it, but when Mark (the creator) of the program first told me he was working on it, and had a rough prototype, I went ahead and bought the cyberQ, Router, and Ipad. Yup, it was a high dollar gamble, but paid off. I was fortunate that he listed and applied my ideas to that program. I wanted it to be not only very user friendly to the competitor, but actually provide valuable information.

Also, another neat feature, is that the pit temp on the Ipad is in color green when it is at setpoint. if it's out of range, it'll show up either blue or red. So, the nice thing about that, is you can just half-way wake up to look at it, squint, and just see that it's green and you know you're good. you don't need to fully look at the numbers to figure your pit temp. (I'm lazy, like my sleep, love this feature)

I like stuff like that, too. If I can look at it and quickly tell that things are going well, that's what I need most of the time.

One note for Mark... the link on iTunes for Cybercook Support goes to a web site that doesn't appear to have anything related to Cybercook. At least I couldn't find anything.

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.

Thanks... That's perfect. Some of the other CyberQ apps out there only work with a live internet connection, which as you know, isn't possible at most competitions.

I've noticed that issue with my CyberQ, too, but unless the Guru folks are willing to replace mine with one that is updated I'll probably put an access point in the trailer. I have a spare Linksys laying around upstairs.

Hi Ron_L,

I'm Mark, the developer of CyberCook. I will be updating my website this weekend to include CyberCook. In the meantime, here are links for the User Guide and a Features Guide that describe the main features of the app.

I am working on an iPhone version right now and it should be available in three to four weeks.

Features Guide -

Ron_L, my website has been updated with CyberCook. There are a couple of files that can be viewed/downloaded with detailed information on the application.

I plan on adding a video demonstration of use and functionality of the app next week.
