Finally! An alarm schedule app designed for specifically competition BBQ.
You miss one checkpoint on your competition BBQ schedule timeline and it can cost you dearly! It happens to every comp pitmaster, it’s only a matter of time.
180Que solves this problem – it’s an automated alarm app that runs your schedule and much more. Maybe you need to adjust your schedule on the fly, or add things to do, collect notes during your cook etc. It’s all there.
180Que was developed by / for competition BBQ pitmasters. The user interface is optimized to make cook schedule creation as fast and easy as possible. And you do this exactly ONE time. After that you simply clone and edit schedules – easy as that.
If 180Que is missing a BBQ schedule feature then just let us know – using the built in Support & Suggestions messaging feature.
After installing: Once installed, take a close look at the two sample schedules that are automatically created for you. If they make sense, then create a new event for your next competition and start entering all the items for your timeline. You only need to do this ONCE – that’s right, because you can clone this event for following events. Edit as needed and, you’re done!
Speaking of changing time, if you change the time of any schedule item, 180Que asks if you want to apply that change to the rest of the schedule – Now that’s a time saver.
Older devices: If you have an old Android phone in a drawer somewhere, odds are it will work just fine. You do not need data connectivity or use 180Que. You don’t have to worry about your daily phone getting lost, breaking or greasy. Reset that old phone to factory default and run through the simple installation steps below.
Note: 180Que does not collect any data from your device what so ever! The only reason network permission is needed is for crash reports that help us understand why 180Que might have crashed. Please see the ‘Explanation of permissions’ section below.
Note: After you click through ‘Become a beta tester’, Google Play needs a minute or two before you can download. Users report “Item Not Found“ message from Google Play. Just give them a minute to catch up and the download should work.
