Allow me a moment free from my daily religious duties of castigating Apple’s numerous misguided critics to bring you news of something you can use tonight and which you’ll thank me for tomorrow.
That’s right. Your iPhone can help you create perfectly popped microwave popcorn with the free app, cleverly named as Perfect Popcorn. Trust me. This is as unique as an iPhone app gets, it’s free, and it actually works (**YMMV).
Other than health problems, what’s the real problem when popping popcorn in the microwave oven? Burned popcorn. Or, all the popcorn doesn’t get popped. Every microwave cooks differently, and every brand of popcorn pops differently.
Perfect Popcorn makes popping corn more science than guesswork. Pop a bag of popcorn in the microwave. Press the Start button on both microwave and Perfect Popcorn app at the same time.
Your iPhone’s microphone listens to the microwave popping the corn and knows when to stop popping.
When Perfect Popcorn has detected the optimal popping amount you’ll be prompted to stop the microwave.
Nuked popcorn was never easier to make than with the Perfect Popcorn app. That’s it. That’s all it does, but it does it well, and the app is free. Free? There’s a reason it’s free. Perfect Popcorn is distributed by Diamond Foods which makes Pop Secret popcorn and other snacks.
