Basic but does the job 3/5
I’ve been using this app for a few years. It’s pretty basic but it does the job. Provides data numerically and in chart form which is helpful. My gripes include: 1/ Unattractive, bulky design. 2/ Awkward UI forces order of entry at beginning, so while I may have most of the data for the end of a reading, I can’t enter it until the BP is recorded at the very beginning. 3/ Creating history reports is limited and not intuitive. PDF format is fine but there are few options for saving/sharing destination. I’d like to save directly to Drive but it’s not an option. I have to email it to myself, then save to Drive from there. I get the option to send direct to doctor via email, but my doc communicates via a portal, not email. So it’s a 3-step process to save to my own files, and a 4-step process to share with my doctor. Screen data is displayed in color indicating optimal, normal, grade 1, 2, 3, etc. according to limit values, however, history reports are generated in BW (the SmartBP logo is in color, though), making it impossible to glean anything from a quick glance. But the charts come in handy as a remedy. Date range selection takes some getting used to - you have to adjust the year before month/day or your attempts are rejected w/o explanation. There are other little niggly things, but you’ll have your own after you use it for awhile.
All in all, I think it’s the highest rated app for BP tracking - I would have rated 3.5 instead of 4 if I had the option - and I obviously haven’t 86ed it. Like I said, it basically does the trick.
1/2 star Scam... 1/5
By galleria photo studio
Scam upgrade subscription monthly payment for a worthless app...
Don’t waste your time and money...
Edit prev rating 5/5
As promised, I am changing my rating from 1 to 5 stars after returning synch function to apple health. This is a wonderful app. And I am very grateful that they have returned synch ability to apple health. That is where all my health statistics are and it was very discouraging when they took that feature away and made it premium acct only.
Horrible. Very discriminating 1/5
Did not do what you were lead to think. Want a refund
Thank you for the update/upgrade!!! Give you your 5 stars back!!!!!! had app for years-now won’t sync to apple health unless $$$. deleting app
App takes your BP and pulse and stores it. That all it does for $ 100.00. It is not as accurate as a cuff and a piece of paper. Too much for to little.
Apple Watch App does not appear 4/5
By Theodore Jones III Enterprises
I just purchased the app today. It was easy to add information; however, I have not been able to see the Apple Watch app. I’ve searched the app listing on the iPhone, as well as the Apple Watch itself. What am I doing wrong?
Full featured stable app after purchase. 5/5
Just purchased the well worth upgrade.
App is working fine. Not experiencing any crashing and works fine with iOS 10.
App uses HealthKit to import/export data so technically any device that updates HealthKit works with this app. Has no direct connect to any hardware.
I like your charts and history and multiple sync options between iCloud and iOS devices.
Needs to remember last entry for weight when manually updating imported HealthKit data.
Use to love this app 3/5
By Love me some puzzle
I loved this app as I was just diagnosed with high blood pressure. I was able to print my information to give to my physician and ever since the update I have to pay now if I want that feature. Very disappointed!
Used to be better 3/5
This used to be a nice app for tracking BP, Pulse and Weight. Now after the last upgrade the app will no longer sync with Apple
health unless you upgrade and pay.
New Sync issue with Health app on 5.0 1/5
5.0 update caused a sync problem with the health app. Though it adds syncing with the watch now as a premium, the issue is the health app sync which was a standard free available feature before. I am downgrading back to 4.9. Those who sync w/the health app, dont upgrade to 5.0.
Does not record your bpblood pressure 1/5
You have to take it with another device and enter it manually. Useless to me
Warning will hound about upgrade $$$ 1/5
I downloaded this to see if it’ll work but all i get is “UPGRADE” I’m not paying $7.99 plus whatever for an app I can’t even see how it works or if it does what it supposed too
No refund yet, after 2 weeks 1/5
By Jacinto Reyes
When I found this app I was so excited and I really lije it. So I went and upgrade the app to eliminate those sometimes annoying ads and find out a better set of apps from the same company at the price that cost me those upgrades. I cancel those upgrades immediately to buy the set of apps and time went by no emails, text messages o anything from them. Apple is no help at all they took my money but didn’t help to get it back. I’ll write a 2nd review to update this one if something happens one way or the other.
Great app! Great developer response! 5/5
SmartBP is being a great help to me tracking my blood pressure while I’m battling high pressure. Having the graphs and stats is encouraging when I see the downward trend. Being able to send a report to the doctor instantly is great for getting feedback from the doctor easily. I like that the limits can be modified and have changed mine (with help of my doctor) to reflect the parameters that apply for me.
Great response from the developer to my questions and suggestions. You know you have a good app when the developer is working to make it better and responsive to input. I see from other posts that this developer is engaged with users and working on making the app even better!
Good app but needs some features 3/5
Good app in general, I wish it could connect to other Omron devices like series 7 and wrist monitors. Also needs feature to allow for automatic unit change from lbs to kgs. Also doesn’t allow adding records if BP is missing... the UI is nice. Also should have option to try premium version before you have to purchase...
Excellent app 5/5
Runs smooth, love the interface and features. Upgraded to premium very pleased
Good try but sync is terrible 3/5
The basic input and graphing is well done, but the syncing process is abysmal. You have to upgrade to Premium $7.99 to get the syncing functions (fair enough), but when I did it, I had to redownload the app from the App Store on the 2nd device, which wiped its data history. The menu trees to invoke a sync are convoluted and different for the iPhone vs the iPad. I undrstand there are limitations within iOS, but Steve Jobs wouldnt have let this out of the lab. Seamless/User friendly....Not.
What a joke! 1/5
What a joke. You can only have one entry. What a waste of time and info.
This app can't do the one thing it's supposed to do, take your blood pressure. It's also filled to crap full of ads. Garbage.
I like this app but I can’t email it to myself from history!
Very good app for tracking BP! 5/5
I’m a physician and epidemiologist who just developed hypertension. As a “data person” and physician, I find this app very helpful to follow my BP and to share daily recordings with my own physician. Entering BPs is easy and the graphs are really well designed and easy to use. Great job!
Outstanding Blood Pressure App! 5/5
This is an outstanding blood pressure app. I’m glad it’s very easy to use because I input my blood pressure several times a day. I like how it gives me an average of my blood pressure and that it gives me statistics and a graph of all my entries. Great app!
I installed it but 3/5
have no idea how to check my BP
Buena app 5/5
It may be good, but I’ll never know. 1/5
Unable to see what value synching with an iPhone without upgrading to professional version.
I would like this... but 2/5
Every time I try to put a previous date and time, the time keeps automatically scrolling back to the current time, making it impossible to input previous data. So therefore, I can’t use this app.
Blood Pressure app 4/5
Helpful and simple to use. Great app for BP tracking.
Too much external links! 1/5
when I click on sync icon it took me to an external link:

Easy to enter data and look at data files. Easy to look at graphs. Limited export of data.
No instructions 1/5
By J. Curly
How do I get BP reading?
Complete waste of time and money.
Pencil and paper or notes on phone does the same recording
Not friendly 1/5
Tells me to save but doesn’t give me anyway to do it.
Not great 2/5
By Washington Irving81
This app isn’t great. Without upgrading its pretty much useless. Do yourself a favor and just record your blood pressure in Apple health. I used this app twice and once I figured out it would only save one blood pressure reading at a time without upgrading to premium I deleted it and started using Apple health.
PURCHASED IN-APP FEATURES AND HAVE NEVER INSTALLED 1/5
This is to hopefully get the attention of support/devs as I put in 2 requests for support.
I am writing this review as I purchased the ad-free version in-app for $5.99. I like the additional features, however I never got to try them. After purchasing, the app would hang on the “loading” prompt. To add salt to the wound, an ad played while I waited for nothing. I reinstalled several times to see if it would fix the issue, but it did not. Luckily, iTunes recognized that the premium version was already purchased every time I installed the app. Unfortunately the app never enabled the premium features. I would love to use this app so that I may be able to send my blood pressure data to my doctor ASAP. 1 star until this is fixed.
GREAT APP 5/5
By Happy ♥️
So far this looks like such a great app. Easy to use, intuitive, love it- thanks!
Bad Choice of Ads 1/5
Ads are obnoxious in that content that is being sent to me is inappropriate and offensive. I reported the offensive ad only to have it repeat less than one minute later. If there was an ad-free purchase option, I would buy it. There are usefel bp tracking features. As is, with the ads, it’s a definite no-go for me.
Better than paper 5/5
By middleaged but not dead 66
My physician had me document my readings for a week...easy to record on app and easy to spot trends with graphing tab
Does not take your blood pressure 1/5
Does not take your blood pressure no way for refund
Great app and devs 5/5
App is perfect if you need to track your BP. It gives you ability to view and export history to share with your doctor. Just perfect amount of features to get the job done. Also developers are SUPER responsive and are very willing to listen to feedback. So far great stuff. Thank you.
Excellent app. Very friendly useful 4/5
I use app for daily basic. Love it.
I would be great, if you can change something for less repeating input in the fields like
I suggest you copy from the very last time user input into the new field, so that I do not need to select from your data and insert again.
About the display data. I would be useful if you add one more short msg from the “Tag”, so that users can easily keep track on what going on instead of click to see of each day.
Hope, it doesn’t much to ask to improve
Do not purchase the upgrade 1/5
I purchased the upgrade because I was tired of the upgrade prompt and the pop-ups ads. The upgrade did not remove either of the two. Contacted the vendor for assistance and they were very prompt in answering emails and send me a gift card since they couldn’t issue an actual refund.
Immediate Issue. 1/5
Upon downloading/opening, it asks you to create your profile. Step 1: Name. <- and that’s as far as I got, unless being 1 DAY old doesn’t matter. You cannot change the birth month, day, nor year from January 1, 2019. Waste of time.
One use and done 1/5
I put in one reading and couldn’t see where to add another. Delete.
Do not like this app n paid to much money
$5.99 to update for nothing
Does not read pressure 2/5
Does not read your blood pressure, it’s more for keeping a log from readings you receive from when your doctor does your blood pressure 👎
Avoid this ap unless . . . 1/5
Avoid this app unless you have time to learn how to use it. I believed my data was being stored after I entered it, but was unable to retrieve it.
Not operate right. Poor design
Can not even be able to enter the pressure
Paid 599 basically for a chart it’s a rip off
