The Smart Cooker app works with Instant Pot Smart smartcooker. It allows you controling and monitoring the cooker wirelessly via Bluetooth connection. The app comes with a collection of recipes covering a large variety of food materials, cuisines and techniques. The recipes include traditional ones such as “New England Clam Chowder” and “Classic Mashed Potatoes” as well as intriguing ones such as “Onsen Tamago: Hot Spring egg (sous vide egg)” and “GABA Rice: Germinated Brown Rice”.
If you want to exercise your culinary creativity, you can also write recipe scripts using the 6 provided commands which include maintaining a temperature or pressure for a period, heating to a specified temperature or pressure, etc. The possibility of cooking style is unlimited. Once your recipe script is tested and proven, you can share it with friends who can reproduce exactly the same cooking procedure on their Instant Pot Smart.
This app also provides you an option of using GPS location for automatically adjusting the cooking time based on the sea level elevation. You may turn on or off the feature at your desire.

Ratings and Reviews
Needs A LOT of work
Great pot, great idea, lousy execution. The app allows you to set a notification message, which I did, I have not yet seen one. I have to watch the timer. I have saved “Favorites”, and seen them go into my list, I come back later - they are gone. I would have hoped, after all the time this app and product have been out, there would be more recipes that could be downloaded and sent straight to the pot, if they are around, I just don’t know where. I hope this all improves.
Not For My Older Instant Pot
I realized going in that this app was intended for the new Instant Pot with Bluetooth controls. I was naive to think the otherwise-excellent looking recipes might include the programming needed for the older pre-Bluetooth models.
Instead, they are all about "recipe script" this or set for specific temperature which my 14 mode model - couldn't they add another paragraph to say "for older machines, use the "Sautee" setting for 5-8 minutes or until meat is browned, then set to "stew" setting or "Manual low pressure 10 minutes" or whatever ?
So I will likely remove the app until I get word that those of us with the older (6 qt 14 mode) models have a way to adapt the recipes for our machines ...
Worst app I have used
This app is seriously making me consider returning the instant pot altogether. My boyfriend and I are college students and we were really excited that this was going to be a fun and convenient way to cook throughout the week. This app is so glitchy and it crashes constantly. On top of that, it is extremely confusing trying to figure out initially how to write the scripts and constantly having the app crash on you while trying to figure it out is pretty infuriating. In the description, this app is spoken about as if they’ve provided so many recipes, when in fact they’ve really only uploaded maybe 15 total recipes (which is really lame... you think they could’ve been bothered to provide more than that considering the amount of money you paid for the smart version).
