Reviewer: Jeremy Steinberg, GP Registrar, RNZCGP Date of review: August 2016 Review: "This app allows users to easily track their blood pressure, thereby helping their doctor to make better prescribing decisions." Safety concerns: "Blood pressure targets are generally individualised taking into account age and other medical problems, this app does not allow one to take that into account."
The formal app review is based on the Mobile App Rating Scale (MARS) developed by researchers at Queensland University of Technology, Australia.(1) It is designed to score apps on a few comprehensive dimensions — engagement, functionality, aesthetics, and information quality. Each dimension comprises several items which are rated on a 5-point scale from “1. Inadequate” to “5. Excellent”.
