Action Point AGA’s new iPhone App that controls oven remotely

They could have at least designed the AGA to be registered to a particular phone and using a pseudo random token to control the oven. What are they teaching them in computer school lately.

"AGA users who don’t have any of these devices can still take advantage of these unique benefi ts by simply sending a text message to their AGA. You just tell the cooker via the app or SMS text message which oven you want activated and it will respond by letting you know it has been switched on or off." link mirror
