Select your meat, thickness, and level of doneness and then GrillTime automatically recommends the perfect grilling time and temperature. No need to hang around the grill, GrillTime notifies you when it’s time to flip and when it’s finished.

REVISED REVIEW -- IT'S PRETTY USEFUL
I never revised an App review before but after giving this one just two stars for just being a fancy version of the already existing timer, I need to correct my error.
I don't think it's perfect. The cooking times are, at best, a good approximation so you really do need to keep an eye and, ideally, use in conjunction with the digital thermometer.
And it creates a very bad misimpression that you can grill things by basically putting them on teh grill, turning halfway through and then removing. Among other issues, grills have hotter and cooler spots so every pro knows you should be flipping and moving most items around regularly during the cooking process.
That said, the timers ARE a pretty good approximation. They cover pretty much everything I've ever thought of grilling and then some. And it really comes in handy when you are grilling several different items on the same grill.
Over the weekend grilled three different fish, sausage, pineapple, asparagus and corn all at once. The multiple timers allowed everything to finish with 60 seconds of each other.
I've come around.
