    A few more tips. First, make sure you are sliding it in the direction of the arrow. second, it has to be sliding on a flat surface. it won’t work going up and down or if you try to carry it. the accelerometers are precise and gravity changes what they read. next, you need to make a quick smooth swipe. try putting a piece of paper under the phone to make it slide better if for instance your case sticks on the surface you are trying to measure. it takes some practice, but I really do get pretty close measurements when using it as I have said above and what i say in the video. I don’t claim that it is going to be perfect, it is for estimation only, but when used as directed it works fairly well.

    Very easy recipe to create. I did not have any tinned
    mushrooms so employed fresh new, chopped mushrooms which I additional with the pasta about five minutes prior to the conclusion from the cooking time, as well as some prawns I also additional some sweetcorn to
    sneak in certain increased veg for my teenaged son. He cherished it, as did the remainder of the household.
    I also implemented Gluten-free pasta and flour and soya milk and goat’s butter as I’m able to tolerate neither gluten nor
    cow-dairy. Everything tasted very good! Many thanks
    for publishing the recipe.
