When your iPhone can act as a metal detector, scanner and language translator, then it should hardly come as a surprise that a recently launched app can convert it into a blood pressure monitoring device for you. Bloodnote is a handy app for iPhone, iPad and iPod that allows you to monitor and keep a tab on your blood pressure readings. With its user friendly interface and on the go availability, you can keep a track of your health anywhere and anytime.
Maintaining a track of your blood pressure on your iPhone essentially means that you get to chart the readings in a much more efficient and organized way, saving you the trouble of writing them down on a piece of paper. The readings can be recorded for each day with the app allowing you to record your systolic, diastolic and pulse readings. The readings are then showed in the form of a neat and creatively designed circular graph.
To measure your blood pressure, you need to place a finger on your phone. The app notes down the reading and asks you to wait for half a second before you lift your finger back up. The measured blood pressure is then saved to the app’s log, which you can easily show your physician the next time you have an appointment.
The app is compatible with iOS devices with version 5.0 or later.
Bloodnote can be downloaded for $1.99 from iTunes.
