This week at 148Apps.com, we indulged in a little healthy living with our review of the iHealth Blood Pressure Dock. Site editor Rob LeFebvre writes, "The iHealth Blood Pressure Dock is a fantastic piece of tech that will allow anyone, regardless of experience, ability, or consciousness to have their blood pressure taken and monitored over time.

The free app that works alongside the actual blood pressure dock and arm cuff is simple, easy to use, and can be set up with multiple users. This allows families to keep track of more than one family member who might want or need to do so.

While high blood pressure is no laughing matter and should be monitored by a doctor or licensed health care provider, the iHealth blood pressure dock is ideal for tracking blood pressure in between doctor visits."

Meanwhile, at GiggleApps.com, writer Amy Solomon took a trip to learn about polar bears via her review of the Smithsonian's Polar Bear Horizon. She writes, "Polar Bear Horizon – Smithsonian Oceanic Collection is an interactive application based on the book of the same name and now part of a series of Smithsonian applications developed by Oceanhouse Media. Like other apps by Oceanhouse Media, this application includes the choice to listen to narration allowing readers to follow along the included text which becomes highlighted when words are spoken, or to read this book to oneself. Auto-play is also an option."

Finally, 148Apps.biz founder Jeff Scott announced the return of MobileBeat to San Francisco, saying "I think of MobileBeat as the business of mobile conference. The conference is about making connections with the business side of the mobile industry. This year the focus of MobileBeat is on something we see ignored all too often, design."

MobileBeat Returns to San Francisco, July 10-11

Posted by Jeff Scott on June 18th, 2012

I think of MobileBeat as the business of mobile conference. The conference is about making connections with the business side of the mobile industry. This year the focus of MobileBeat is on something we see ignored all too often, design.

Design: The New Battleground for Mobile

The most successful players are focusing on one thing: How to make products, services, and devices as compelling and delightful as possible – both visually, and experientially.

Under appreciated most of the time time, design truly is the way to make mobile experiences stand out and succeed. No exception this year, there are many big movers in the industry coming out to share their knowledge, including:

• Mark Pincus, Founder, CEO & CPO, Zynga
• Dave Morin, Co-Founder & CEO, Path
• Hill Ferguson, Head of Mobile, Paypal
• Mark Curtis, Founder, Fjord
• Chris Weber, President (US), Nokia
• Scott Dadich, VP Digital Development, Conde Nast
• Jason Spero, Head of Mobile, Google

Take a look at the conference site for more info as the agenda gets filled out.
