Over 76.4 million adults have been diagnosed with hypertension in the United States.

Almost 80% of those treated for stroke and 70% of heart attack patients have high blood pressure.

Needless to say, patient education and efficient blood pressure tracking can play a key role in keeping your patients safe.

Blood Pressure Report is TriStarApps’ solution to ensure hypertensive patients keep accurate records of their blood pressure readings.

The app has a “lite” or free version as well as a paid one.

The App

Blood Pressure Lite starts up and offers us five tabs from which to choose from.

  • Home
  • Readings
  • Charts
  • Settings
  • About

On the “Home” tab, dials are presented for entering our blood pressure readings and pulse along with buttons to change the date and time.

Below the number picker the last five readings are showcased for quick reference.

The “Readings” tab shows a list of all past readings using a color-code system for different blood pressure levels. We can tap on readings to edit or delete them and we have the option to save our records to an SD card or just mail them to one of our contacts. The lite version allows us to e-mail our readings records only three times.

The app comes with a “Charts” tab where a chart based on our past readings is made using either a pie chart for different blood pressure reading levels or a line chart with blood pressure readings and pulse readings.

The “Settings” tab allows us to customize our desirable blood pressure ranges for Systolic & Diastolic. An entry field for your doctor’s phone number is available and you can configure an e-mail to send readings to. The color-coded system is displayed and explained on this screen.

Lastly, the “About” tab provides us with the app’s version number and the copyright notice.


The user interface is simple enough and requires little explanation. Perhaps the decision to place the color-coded system’s explanation on the settings tab is not in itself a good idea considering that if you’ve just took a reading you’d want to know what it means right away. On this regard, the app could also provide more information about the ranges: What does “Good” mean? What about Stage 1 Hypertension? This is a patient oriented app and patients don’t have to know by heart what those terms mean.

Other than that, Blood Pressure Report runs nice and did not crash while we were testing it. The only difference between the lite version and the paid one seems to be the limitation on the amount of e-mails one can send and the ads displayed on-screen.
