A smartphone app introduced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to measure heat safety in work environments reportedly cost $200,000 to develop and returns inaccurate readings of temperatures.

Of course, this information comes courtesy of a hacker who runs a job board called gun.jo and whose name is Rich Jones.

"When I first tried the application, it told me that it was currently 140F in Boston," Jones wrote.

He later filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for details on the app's development for iPhones and Android and Blackberry smartphones. The iPhone and Blackberry version cost $96,000, and the Android version came in at $106,000.

Said Jones after examining the source code, "If I had to reproduce it, I’d say that it would take be about 6 hours at the maximum. At my hourly rate of $100, that’s $600.”

It's not clear if he meant just one version or all three; however, several others in the app community concurred with him.
