Dear Kellie,

i recently changed from PC to Mac and was wondering if i could transfer the software to my new computer? (i have BG, BP and Weight package). Also do you have an iPhone Aps so that i can enter the reading on my phone and synchronise late?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Hi Paul,

    You can transfer the software if you setup a Windows virtual machine on your Mac. For more information about doing this, see:

    I am currently investigating ways to run our applications on Macs without needing to install a virtual machine + Windows, however that option wouldn’t be ready until sometime in 2012.

    As for iPhone apps, while this is something I would like to do in the future, we have no firm plans as yet.

    Thanks for your feedback, and hope this helps!

    I am also interested in upgrading my software from your company to install on my macbook. Also, when you do get that option up and running, will you be charging an upgrade fee?

    Hi Victor,

    Thanks for letting me know of your interest in this.

    I have not decided on this as yet, but the answer is probably yes as I believe it will be part of a new major version release.

    Thanks again!

    Hello Steve. I am really interested in your BP software in particular. This week my primary care doc asked me to chart daily BP readings three times daily. He wants me also to average the daily reading.

    I’m a technically challenged 74-year old male and can’t even remember how to spell EXCEL.

    I am transferring to an iMAC from a PC and I don’t really know what’s involved with purchasing your PC-based software for use on the iMAC. I have loaded Windows XP on the iMAC.

    I watched your very good video, but I’m still not confident that I understand how I would input my data.

    Another question I have is, “will I be able to periodically Email my doc graphs that show readings and averages etc?

    While waiting for your reply, I’m going to poke around your web site and will probably discovery you have addressed these issues. For this, I apologize.

    I also want to find out if I can download a temporary version to learn how the data is input, charted, printed, and Emailed.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

      Yes, you can download a 15 day trial by using the instructions on the following webpage:

      http://www.my-health-software.com/view/apps/my-blood-pressure/mybp-download

      Depending on how you have setup your iMac to run Windows, installing the trial should just involve opening the above webpage using Internet Explorer inside Windows, and then following the instructions on that webpage.

      If you then choose to purchase the software, you receive a “license” or code that you enter into the trial. This converts the trial into the full version, and you retain all your settings and readings that you entered into the trial.

      > my doc graphs that show readings and averages etc?

      Yes, there are a number of ways to do this. The method I usually recommend is described on the following webpage:

      Hope this helps!

      If you have any technical questions, or run into any problems getting things running, please feel free to email me at support@my-health-software.com and I will do what I can to help you get up and running.

      Unfortunately not yet. It is still on the todo list, but I am not sure of how much work will be involved, or when it will be ready.

      At this stage, the only way to run it on a mac is via a virtual machine solution.
