Heart Pal - App Review

If you don't suffer from high blood pressure (or low for that matter), don't take medication, and aren't responsible for anyone to whom these items apply, then this App won't interest you... because they are the raison d'être of the App.

Now for the ACIDS test:

The main entry screen allows you to enter systolic and diastolic heart pressures, as well as pulse. You can also enter notes to attach to individual readings, which could be helpful in later analysis. In addition to this, you can enter any medication that needs to be taken, including dosage and, very importantly, when the medication needs administering. You can choose imperial or metric units.
The App then takes care of graphing this information in a very neat way, as well as issuing reminders for medication to be taken.

There is a free version to try, before going for the low cost, unlimited full version.

It is a neat way to record heart rates. The App will serve as a reminder of medication to be taken, although this can also be effected with the built-in alarm. The App is not indispensable but medical supervision is.

The App does not record your heart rate (obviously), it is merely a very neat and elegant way to record the readings that you have obtained with a heart pressure monitor. The part that is indispensable is proper medical supervision.

Your information is only stored on your iOS device so, there are no security issues. On the other hand, it also means that there is no medical supervision of individual readings, just when you show the data to your specialist.

ACIDS Test Rating:
A neat addition to proper medical supervision.
