The Smart Cooker app works with Instant Pot Smart smartcooker. It allows you controling and monitoring the cooker wirelessly via Bluetooth connection. The app comes with a collection of recipes covering a large variety of food materials, cuisines and techniques. The recipes include traditional ones such as “New England Clam Chowder” and “Classic Mashed Potatoes” as well as intriguing ones such as “Onsen Tamago: Hot Spring egg (sous vide egg)” and “GABA Rice: Germinated Brown Rice”.
If you want to exercise your culinary creativity, you can also write recipe scripts using the 6 provided commands which include maintaining a temperature or pressure for a period, heating to a specified temperature or pressure, etc. The possibility of cooking style is unlimited. Once your recipe script is tested and proven, you can share it with friends who can reproduce exactly the same cooking procedure on their Instant Pot Smart.
This app also provides you an option of using GPS location for automatically adjusting the cooking time based on the sea level elevation. You may turn on or off the feature at your desire.

Not For My Older Instant Pot
I realized going in that this app was intended for the new Instant Pot with Bluetooth controls. I was naive to think the otherwise-excellent looking recipes might include the programming needed for the older pre-Bluetooth models.
Instead, they are all about "recipe script" this or set for specific temperature which my 14 mode model - couldn't they add another paragraph to say "for older machines, use the "Sautee" setting for 5-8 minutes or until meat is browned, then set to "stew" setting or "Manual low pressure 10 minutes" or whatever ?
So I will likely remove the app until I get word that those of us with the older (6 qt 14 mode) models have a way to adapt the recipes for our machines ...
Worst app I have used
This app is seriously making me consider returning the instant pot altogether. My boyfriend and I are college students and we were really excited that this was going to be a fun and convenient way to cook throughout the week. This app is so glitchy and it crashes constantly. On top of that, it is extremely confusing trying to figure out initially how to write the scripts and constantly having the app crash on you while trying to figure it out is pretty infuriating. In the description, this app is spoken about as if they’ve provided so many recipes, when in fact they’ve really only uploaded maybe 15 total recipes (which is really lame... you think they could’ve been bothered to provide more than that considering the amount of money you paid for the smart version).
Clunky & glitchy but promising
I love the idea of this app, but every time I turn on the pot I have to reconnect to my phone or ipad -- it never seems to just find it automatically -- and sometimes it takes forever. It becomes easier to just do it manually. And when I add a recipe to one version of the app it doesn't synch with the other device; what's with that? Adding DIY recipes is kind of a pain on the phone or iPad; it would be nice if there were an online app I could use as a master for it so that when I was typing I could use a keyboard. If this app worked as expected, it would be a five for sure. As it is, though, I feel I could have just gotten the cheaper non-"smart" pot.
