Perfect Cup Tea timer
My local tea shop always serves teas with a timer, and I appreciate that it keeps my teas – especially green or black teas from getting nasty as I zone out with web development. I decided to make a tea timer app to get the same benefits at home.
At any rate, it’s released and it will allow you to add, delete or edit teas – they’re stored in local storage, and then start a timer when you’re teas is ready to brew. Pretty basic!
Save it to your home screen to get the full “app” experience. Works great on Android, iOS still hasn’t really figured out PWAs as nicely (no splash screen on iOS for example) but it basically works. Other weird thing with iOS is that the bell that goes off when your tea is ready will only play once initially - and in my experience it seemed to randomly start up again after quite some time. This has partially to do with iOS blocking video and audio that are not triggered by a user action – in this case it is triggered by a user action, but because the bell is ringing over and over, it’s getting blocked as if it was not user-initiated. Frustrating, but that’s Apple for you, these days.
If you like tea, give it a try!
