  • Automatic change of measurement units between inch or milometer and Fahrenheit or Celsius, depending on language and international settings.
  • determine and enter your altitude manually or let it be determined by GPS automatically.
  • The egg-spy shows you the inside of your egg during the cooking progress

"The perfect egg timer" is a clever program with which your eggs should turn out the way you like them. First, place the egg on your iPhone and measure the exact size, using a graph paper as the screen background. Then state whether the egg is room temperature or was in the refrigerator. Finally, use a slider to set whether you like your egg liquid, soft or hard. Now put the egg in a saucepan with cold water and turn on the timer as soon as the water boils. The egg spy then shows you what it looks like inside the egg.
