iGrill 2 was a chance to apply the lessons learned in iGrill 1 – and apply them we did! I specced the project in extreme detail this time and the new specs, along with new communication approaches, resulted in a much smoother dev process.
This time we’d had a chance to cook with the iGrill and knew all the device’s capabilities going in so we were able to hone the user experience, making it easier while adding more features like a smoking mode, detailed graphing and a special screen designed for reading at a distance.
Geoff designed a new look with iDevices’ chosen colors focussed on maximizing legibility. Subtle background textures keep the surfaces from feeling monotonous while the UI elements are custom without being foreign. Overall iGrill 2 was a major milestone because it was first time a large project had gone so smoothly.
