Good software, simple and clean. I think it is more suitable for BP tracking than complex database applications, buuuut it is overpriced..
Also i'd like to see some improvement in charts.

Let me see if I understand this. For $25 you can buy a 'one trick pony' that will only track your blood pressure and pulse. But for $50 you can buy a general purpose database with a user friendly interface, like Bento, that will replace all the overpriced fee based 'one trick pony' databases that have proliferated in recent years, like this one, with a minimum addition of user knowledge and effort while allowing the user to customize the output and data entry to fit their personal needs. Which sounds like the better choice? While I take issue with Bento's (Filemaker) upgrade policies and regard it as predatory, It still offers a more cost effective solution if a user is considering purchasing multiple 'one trick pony' databases. Besides, there is no law stating that when a developer offers an upgrade that the user has to buy it, especially if the previous version is doing an adequate job.

Well, sometimes you just need a pony that will do the job.

Why should I buy Pixelmator when Photoshop exists? Why should I buy any text editor, when TeX beats them all? If I spread your idea to the whole software market, there will be about twenty do-all-things applications. And nothing more. I don't think it's a good idea.

We successfully sell another product: Box Shot 3D. There are lots of professional applications like Maya or 3D Studio Max. Even free apps like Blender. And Photoshop can do the job, but customers buy our software. Just because it is simple, stable and it does exactly what they need.

The same is for iBloodTracker. When you run it - you will see all what you need to track your blood pressure. And nothing more. If you think that something is missed - just drop a line to support and the feature will be added (most of new features were added after user requests).

Bento looks promising, I'll definitely take a look at it. But according to reviews (and your review too) it has two problems: stability and upgrade policy. iBloodTracker is stable because of its simplicity and its upgrades cost nothing.

So, if you need a pony that just does it's job - you are welcome ;)

I agree with all that you say - providing your only interest is in a single such product. However as a consumer, I am also interested in value. There are literally hundreds of single use fee based, databases available for exercise, to-do lists, medications, Media libraries, recipes, home inventory, etc. A person could spend hundreds of dollars on such products and in a couple of years wind up with a sizable group that lack support, updates or require costly upgrades, or have simply gone out of existence. My position is that if a user needs encompass a number of such products they are better off buying a single general purpose database from a known reputable company and customizing it to their needs, as opposed to spending much more money for a bunch of products with an unknown or unproven pedigree.

Additionally, judging from most of the other comments posted about this product, I am not alone in my opinion that the product is overpriced for what it does. However if numbers of users are purchasing the product at the price you charge for it, then my opinion does not matter and the price instead reflects savvy marketing.

Pixelmator is *far* from a one shot pony. Let's keep this in perspective. iBloodTracker 2.0.0 does not work with any of the USB blood pressure devices, which would justify the cost. It doesn't, so any database will do.

$25.00 Ouch, that's a lot compared to most Mac shareware! I'd buy it at 1/2 that price.
