For the barbecue, for the plot and for the weekend. Google Play Treasures #87

The Google Play Store is a goldmine, but finding useful apps or well-made Android games is quite a challenge. That’s why every weekend I share finds and news from Google Play that I find valuable and useful. As the weather is nice, this week I am offering applications for lovers of barbecues, picnics and outings to the plot.

Apparently grilling is the national sport of the Poles. I don’t know if that’s true, but it doesn’t hurt to recommend several apps that will come in handy when cooking a meal out. It’s worth knowing where the storm is, how to inventively prepare a pork neck, and easily settle accounts with friends for joint purchases.

Weather Forecast in Windy for Android

Don’t be surprised by the weather – this rule also applies when planning a barbecue trip. I therefore recommend my favorite meteorologist, that is to say Elevators. The app has huge resources of weather data, including for pilots and sailors, but for us the most important are visualizations of precipitation, storms and wind animation. After all, in strong winds, it bakes as badly as in the rain.

Cloudy and thunderstorms in Ascenseurs

Elevators also has 3 widgets with weather forecasts for where you are staying. Most of us are happy with the data in the free version of the app, but if you have higher requirements, you can look for more accurate data available in the subscription.

After doing your inventory in the fridge, you can also label the products you are missing for the perfect grill menu. They will be collected on a shopping list divided into dishes, making it easy to choose the perfect items and find possible substitutes. I think this app won’t work just for grilling.


Agrama – Shared shopping list without creating an account

Shopping list in the Agrama app

When joint shopping is involved and you know you won’t convince your friends to connect anywhere, he comes to the rescue Agrama. This is a very simple app that lets you share your shopping list using the peer-to-peer method. Data is synced between users, but you don’t need to create accounts, and then you can delete the app and forget about everything. In my opinion, Agrama is the perfect solution for small groups that shop together. Anyway, I use it every day and so far it hasn’t let me down.
