Better health with smartphone apps
A variety of smartphone or tablet apps are available to support your heart health—for example, by allowing you to track home blood pressure readings and share them with your doctor.
Downloadable software can educate and motivate, helping you to move in a healthier direction.
According to one estimate, the number of downloadable health-related software programs, or "apps," for smartphones and tablet computers may already top 40,000. These digital tools can help you monitor your physical activity, plan healthier meals, and keep track of your blood pressure and other personal data.
