New smart connected thermometers have been coming to market lately, allowing parents to easily record temperature readings and helping to track fevers with ease.

Now a new thermometer works with iOS and Android phones. The Wishbone from JoyWing Tech (NY, NY) plugs into the smartphone's audio jack, passing the readings automatically to the accompanying app.

The device has two nearly identical horns, one of which is the actual thermometer tip that's placed 3-5 cm near the patient's forehead and the other is a battery holder. The device takes readings in under two seconds with the help of the infrared sensor in one of the tips and the shape of the device makes it comfortable to place the thermometer properly while still seeing the phone's screen.

The app allows you to create different profiles so that temperature readings of different family members can be tracked without mixing with readings from others. JoyWing is currently raising funds via Kickstarter to begin producing the Wishbone and you can still pre-order one for $33 via Kickstarter with shipping promised for April.
