If you love to grill and show off your Android phone, you might want to take note of the new iGrill accessory. This cool Bluetooth gadget allows you to remotely monitor food temperatures from the convenience of your Android smartphone. It has been available for iOS devices for a couple of years, but today the company just rolled out their official Android app.
The iGrill retails for $79.99 and you can get free shipping right now if you use the promo code “ITSHERE”. A list of compatible Android devices that have been tested is available on the iGrill site, so make sure to check that out before ordering.
Chris Allen, CEO, iDevices LLC said, ”We are very excited to invite Android users into the iGrill community. Android currently embodies roughly 68% of the smartphone market so we see this as a tremendous opportunity to reach a much larger audience. Now, Android users can utilize the main features of the iGrill, providing them with a carefree cooking experience while also saving them time. We are very proud of what we have created for our Android fans and are confident they will enjoy it as much as we do.”
I have an iGrill review unit, but I haven’t been able to test it yet since the app was just released today. My dutch oven has been calling my name, so I think I’ll grill a big pork roast this weekend and test it out. Given the current retail price, I think the iGrill is more a novelty for people that want to show off what their phone can do. If you are in the market for a basic wireless thermometer, you can find them online at a third of the price.
Check back in the coming weeks for our full review.
