iPad 2 app for your refrigerator

We found a unique iPad 2 app for the kitchen or actually wherever you keep your refrigerator. This iPad 2 app is called Freezerview. It is primarily designed for iPad 2 with it’s built-in front and rear cameras. The FreezerView iPad 2 app allows you to get an overview of your freezer’s content with the use of the camera on your iPad 2. It categorizes and time stamps with lots of other tagging features. So you locate the item within seconds when you open up your freezer.
This iPad 2 app even gives you a warning before your food expires, so you may never have to throw out food again. It’s simple to use: Choose a freezer that looks like your own real-life one and then just add items to your freezer by naming them, placing them and assigning a container type with it’s own color. Then the app automatically stamps the date you add an item. So for example, you enter frozen bag of broccoli into your ipad device. You identify the container section and this iPad app will alert you after a set period (which you can set individually for each item). It’s flexible too. Once you’ve added a freezer item, you can move or change the container as many times as you like.
