If you're a popcorn lover and as tired as I am of the burned and blackened popcorn dilemma, you're going to love this. Apps for iPhone keep coming out all the time to make every day life easier and more fun. Now, at long last, there's finally a brand new free app just for popcorn fans called Perfect Pop from Pop Secret to make sure your popcorn pops perfectly and doesn't go up in smoke in the microwave ever again. 

I just hate when this happens, don't you? Black popcorn not only ends up in the trash, which is a waste of food that ends up costing you more money in the long run since you have to pop up another batch to replace the one you just threw out. Besides, when it's incinerated it can make your kitchen and whole house reek with the worst kind of burnt food smell imaginable. P-U!

It looks and tastes so bad when it's burnt to a crisp -- even our always hungry miniature pinscher Dexer runs away from it, LOL! I know this has happened to me, my kids and our little dog once too often when microwaving some Family Night Movie Popcorn, way more than I'd like to admit.

There's no time is better than now to say #GoodbyeBurnedPopcorn

This  new Pop Secret app for iPhone 5+ running iOS 7 or higher is just the thing to put perfectly popped popcorn and fun back into your family's home video watching quality time together. To get started first download the Perfect Pop App from the App Store. The Perfect Pop App is designed to work with select Pop Secret products, so you'll want to have one of these on hands, either in Regular or Snack Size.

Pop Secret pocorn varieties Perfect Pop works with 
  • Homestyle (the type I used for this post)
  • Butter
  • Light Butter
  • 94% Fat Free Butter
  • Movie Theater Butter
  • Extra Butter
Our dog loves perfectly popped popcorn. Don't believe me? Watch this silly Wild Dog Dexter #PerfectPop Popcorn Chase video

Just about everyone knows how frustrating burning popcorn can be -- even hungry dogs. So it's a good thing that Pop Secret has come to rescue us all from any more burned popcorn, allowing you to spend more time enjoying movies and less time worrying about burned popcorn.

Downloading and Using the Pop Secret App

Using an iPhone 5+ running iOS 7+, first download the Pop Secret Perfect Pop app ("Perfect Popcorn) for free from the App Store.

Then follow these easy steps:

1. Put a bag of Pop Secret in the microwave and enter suggested cooking time from the packaging. Remember: Perfect Pop is optimized for the perfect Pop Secret popcorn only.

2. Turn up the volume on your iPhone. Point the phone's speaker towards the microwave and keep with 3 feet. 

3. Start the microwave and then hit the start button on the app. Stay right there, don't walk away because now the fun really begins!

Then, get ready for some fun watching a simulation of what the popcorn inside the bag looks like as it is popping on your iPhone! A message will pop up on the screen telling you to stop the microwave when your popcorn is finished.

No more relying on that unreliable popcorn microwave button or guessing how many seconds between pops. Pop Secret is serious about perfect popcorn. That means less worry and more time to spend watching home movies and videos with friends and family.  The Perfect Pop app listens to the pops, waiting for the perfect moment to let you know your popcorn is done.

Last, but most important of all, enjoy your freshly popped corn while watching a movie with those you care about or even reading a good book solo like my son did. Based on my test ofor this review, I recommend trying this fun and practical app with the Pop Secret Homestyle popcorn variety. 

The Pop Secret Homestyle popcorn type, BTW, which is made from the brand's secret recipe with a sprinkle of salt and a taste of butter pops up bigger and more delicious than the competing brand I used to use exclusively. Certified OU kosher, the Pop Secret line is widely available at markets and big box stores where food is sold nationwide.
