I'm sure I'm not the only one who has to Google how many minutes a soft-boiled egg requires every time I attempt one. If you've got your iPad in the kitchen already, this app would prove very handy.

You just select whether you want a soft, medium or hard-boiled egg, and the iPad app will start a countdown timer, alerting you when it's time to extract those eggs from the saucepan. You may be scratching your head and wondering why you should pay 99 cents for an app when Google will tell you for free—but if the inbuilt timer saves your eggs from being too hard-boiled just the once, I reckon that's worth the dollar.
