[prMac.com] Arroyo Grande, California - blueHula Studios today is pleased to announce their first app, Beer Timer, is now available exclusively for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Developed for anyone who has ever thought it was a good idea to put a beer in the freezer to cool it down, and then forgotten about it, Beer Timer alerts iPhone and iPad users their beer is in the freezer and ready to drink.
"Our goal was to stop people from exploding forgotten beer in their freezer," said Craig VanderZwaag, Beer Timer's developer. "We built the app to alarm not only before the beer freezes, but also to alarm at the temperature each beer type is supposed to be consumed."
Beer Timer takes into consideration the size of the beer, the container and the type. "We spent quite a bit of time testing, and tasting" said VanderZwaag. "Once we got some data about how quickly each beer cools from room temperature to it's optimum drinking temperature, we were able to determine exactly how long a beer should be in the freezer."
Beer Timer's users input the the size, container and type, and the app figures how long the beer should be in the freezer. "You don't drink stout beer at the same temperature you drink a pale lager," said VanderZwaag. "Our users get a beer at the perfect temperature no matter what style of beer they're enjoying, with the bonus of never having to clean beer off the walls of the freezer again."
