What's New in Version 1.8
Fixes crash when resetting alarms after app has been shutdown and restarted.
Other minor bug fixes.
Used this for several years now
Much simpler than digging out a book and messing with weights. Sets alarms for all phases of cooking. Takes all the stress out of cooking a large dead animal.
After the latest bug fix it is a useful app. I do think it needs a countdown timer tho, rather than a 'line' (so you can time when to put in your veggies etc)
Good App support👍
Have found times a little hit and miss but the add extra time is great - so much better than digging around for cookbooks.
