If you’re like me and LOVE red hot chilli peppers, then ChilliFarm may just be an app you’ll want to find a home for on your iPhone. This fiery little app gives you facts, stats, and images for the world’s hottest chilli peppers! Think of it as your handheld, one-stop-shop for anything and everything chillies!
In addition to providing helpful chillies-related info, ChilliFarm also serves as a pocket sized advertisement for South Devon Chilli Farm (SDCF). SDCF is a well renown premium chillies grower in the UK that’s been featured on television, in magazines, and have been vouched for by famous chef Jamie Oliver as growing “the best chillies in the country”. If anybody knows about chillies it’s these guys.
Laced from end to end with it’s colorful chilli themed flair, ChilliFarm app gives you one touch access to what every chilli lover has always hungered for; anytime/anywhere access to the history, origin, and Scoville Rating (AKA – Mouth Burning/Montezuma’s Revenge Meter) for all of the big time chillies! Now chilli snobs everywhere can unite and show in-person proof to people who brag about eating jalapenos at the salad bar that they ain’t (BLEEP). What? You think the overcooked red peppers in your Kung Pow chicken are spicy? HA-HA-HAAAA! Amateur! Oh, you say the orange habanero at the grocery store is the hottest pepper in the world? Huh…clearly you have no idea what you’re talking about! Yes my friends, with ChilliFarm app for iPhone, you can rightfully assume your position as the ultimate chilli pepper conosur.
In addition to including vital stats and images for the world’s most mouth meltingly hot chilli peppers, ChilliFarm also packs a few extras. There’s an ’About Us’ page where you can learn more about SDCF including links to their website and other publications, an RSS page intended to keep you abreast of what the farm is up to, which more or less appears to be a window into SDFC’s Twitter page, and a page for recipe ideas.
Overall ChilliFarm is colorful, fairly informative, and very easy to use. Being a chilli lover, I definitely like having quick access to mega hot chilli pepper data. Currently though, some of the app’s features could use a little help. For example, the recipes page is very slim. It only has 7 recipes, 3 of which are salsa. The RSS feed page seems rather insignificant as well. It appears as if it’s just a feed from the SDCF Twitter page. I was expecting something more expansive and newsworthy.
The great news is that there are major updates on the way! The app’s developer has announced that they’ll be expanding on the number of peppers and images, increasing the amount of recipes and information, and will be introducing an interactive feature that allows users to upload pictures of their own chillies, as well as to input and share their own favorite chilli recipes! That’ll be fun! So, if you’re a chilli lover like I am, and would like to have some handy chilli related info in your iPhone or iPod Touch, you should go check out ChilliFarm. It’s currently the one-and-only Chilli based app available in the App Store!
