Some of the best grilling apps are free, but there are a number of them that you need to pay for. We like grilling apps that focus on this type of cooking compared to basic recipe apps.

Wether this is your first grill, or your just trying to become a better cook on the grill, you can use these apps to spice up your dinner. These apps are perfect for figuring out;

    Timers are indeed wonderful tools for managing efficiency, productivity and grilling!

    At Appsules, we built Elapsed which lets you run multiple timers concurrently grouped (overdue, running, paused) and sorted by remaining time. Additionally, frequently used timers can be saved as presets for easy one-tap reuse. Multiple instances of the same timer can be launched (ex. two loads of laundry, one preset, no problem!). Even more… its the only timer app out there that lets you modify running timers while they are still counting down… change the remaining time, duration, alert sound or even timer… life isn’t always predictable… so we want you to have options.

    So, please do check out – you’ll find it to be a significant upgrade from the default Clock app. Oh, one last thing… its FREE!

    I developed a free Android called Grillometer that can be found on Google Play. I use it all the time with excellent results. You simply enter a recipe title, cooking steps and times and then adjust them to perfection for your tastes and equipment. The app also has dual timers so different foods finish at the same time. It evens alerts you 20 seconds before you need to do something, like turn a steak. Check it out.
