(AP) — Make your own ice cream cones without the need for a cone.
A new app, Mama Live, lets you make the cones at home.
The app is available on iOS and Android, and it is a follow-up to Mama, which debuted on the app store in July.
The apps use different algorithms to make the ice cream more ice-cream-like.
A “lazy” algorithm lets the app render the cone, while a “superfast” algorithm renders the cone faster.
The algorithms are designed to render cones with an amount of surface area of 1.5 to 1.75 inches.
“You can get rid of that whole cone of ice cream without it actually getting in your face,” said Mary Ann Robinson, the founder and CEO of Mama Live.
“The cone is actually not going to stick to your face.”
The app can be used to make ice cream at home, but it can be purchased for $2.99 on Apple and Android.
The first version of the app came out in July and was downloaded more than 10 million times by Monday afternoon.
It’s not available on the Apple or Google Play stores.
Robinson said she’s worked on the ice-fantastic algorithm to find a way to make more ice cream, which is more like the kind you get at a fancy restaurant than the ice cones you can buy at the grocery store.
Robinson and her company have sold more than 20 million Mama Live ice-cone kits, which she sells for $25.
“We’re looking for ways to make this more like a traditional ice cream shop,” she said.
“It’s about trying to get the ice to look as close to a cone as possible, and that’s why the superfast algorithm is so important.”
Mama Live also lets you use the cones as a way of adding a touch of sophistication to a frozen treat.
When you make ice-filled cones, you can set them in a container and pour ice cream over them.
When the cone is full, the ice melts in your mouth.
But the cones also make a good ice-cold dessert.
When it’s done, the cones can be eaten as ice cream.
“That’s what we love about this,” Robinson said.
Robinson is trying to build on Mama Live’s success.
She is hoping to add new features in the future.
One is a way for you to customize your cones so they look like the ice in a cup of coffee.
That could make them better suited to people who have allergies or are sensitive to certain ingredients, Robinson said, adding that her company is working on adding more flavors.
“Some people might be more sensitive than others, but we have this in the app,” she added.
“If you want to try it out, you have to open the app and go to ‘Make’ and put in your allergies.”
