What's New in Version 2.0.0
New look and design to make it easier to use. Added email capability to email readings out to caregiver, doctor, etc....Works with Apple Health.
Now Works with Apple Health
My improving my review because the app was improved to sync with the Apple Health software, framework, or whatever it is. We can also email readings from the app, without needing to go to the web site to do it. Both major enhancements and improvements.
But I have a nit: the date and time in the app for readings are way too small. There is a lot of room on the screen to make that text bigger; please do so. Let’s face it: a lot of people using BP monitors and using this app are on the “old” side compared to typical iPhone-glued-to-the-head crowd. We need a bigger font for the date and time of each reading.
Much, much better than at the time of my first review. Hence, an extra star. To give it 5 stars, I will need to poke around in the program more to see whether I find other things that bug me or could work better.
One thought, right off the bat, is to have a separate history list that records only the averages of three readings, with the ability to send those averages only to a doctor.
It is hard to review this app since I cannot sign in. Before I got the app, I created an account on their web page. As is my habit, my password uses alphanumeric and punctuation characters so it is difficult to crack. Imagine my surprise when I tried to sign in to the app using my secure password only to be informed that it only accepts alphanumeric characters! I contacted support and they verified this stupidity. I was told that my feedback would be forwarded to the developers for consideration. With all the news about hacked accounts, this is unconscionable. I informed Omron that until this was fixed, I would not use the app. I am not willing to compromise security due to incompetent developers. Hopefully they will quickly remedy this disconnect.
Downloaded and installed the app on my iPhone 4. The app description indicates that it is optimized for the iPhone 5 & 6 but makes no mention of not working with the iPhone 4. Tried several times to pair my phone with the Omron Model BP786 (which I might add works very nicely) but each time my the app could not detect that the Bluetooth on the phone was turned on and instructed me to turn it on in settings. Shut the phone down and turned it back on but still continued to get the same message. So far I have not been able use this app at all which is frustrating since this was one of the reasons that I bought this particular model.
