More bizarre behaviour from the app…
Last night, I turned on my APC (manually) for a cook. Didn't use the app, didn't use the timer on the device. I just turned it on.
This morning, I started the Anova app (again, fat-fingering a tap) while my phone was in bluetooth range. Here is what I got:
Interesting. So, the temperature is correct, and had been at 68 ºC all night. I don't know where the 16 minute timer value comes from. It might have been an old value that was there previously, when I was still trying to use the app and decided to keep something warm for a while longer.
At any rate, the timer was counting down, even though I never asked for it to be started. I killed the app and thought no more of it.
Lo and behold, just under sixteen minutes later, the APC started beeping. Incessantly, of course, because it is apparently still deemed acceptable by Anova to beep every few seconds, forever. As it happened, my wife was teaching a yoga class (with four students in deep meditation at the time) in the living area, which adjoins the kitchen in our open-plan house. Just great. I ended up having to add to the disturbance by walking right through the class to make the APC stop beeping.
I honestly don't know who writes the software for Anova. But as a software engineer with 38 years of experience, I can assure you that the person is incompetent. This app is the worst train wreck I've seen in many years.
