The TorquePro app is all I use. It gives the code(s). Google does the rest.

Yes, scantool.net offers a WiFi version for the apple products

I personally use android devices (bluetooth) so don't know how good the refresh rates are through (WiFi) on apple products.

Very interested if this can actually deliver 3hz. The cheap ones manage about 1 or 1.5. For scanning it doesn't matter. When using it with Harry's lap timer it would be much better because it would track throttle open percent and rpm much, much better at 3hz. Still not real time like a real data logger but it would be much more useful.

Default Re: Torque Pro app

Torque Pro is an OK app for real-time monitoring, but it is limited by the OBD-2 bluetooth adapter you choose.

Cheap adapters like the ELM-327 are clunky and slow, and lots of ebay-tier ELM-327 devices spontaneously die, but a good ELM-327 device will give you a slow and delayed monitoring of your OBD-2 systems that is pretty reliable.

Torque Pro is limited to generic OBD-2 code reporting, so will not give you any sort of BMW-specific code. Some times, the Motronic engine management throws a BMW-specific code that is not necessarily the same as a generic OBD-2 code, which is why a Peake tool is better to use for first-line CEL diagnostics.

BMW proprietary software, like DIS and INPA, are even better to use if you're serious about real-time diagnostics and data logging.

An install of analogue or digital gauges is the most effective and reliable way to get real-time monitoring of your engine conditions - far better than any scanner intervention. The Peake R5-FCX2/3 is also well worth the purchase price because it is an effective medium between Torque Pro and BMW proprietary software when it comes to vehicle diagnostics.

Also OBD Fusion ($5) works with iOS or Android.

Does anyone know of a OBD1 bluetooth adapter and Android app for the 1995 m3 (S50)?

Unlikely to ever happen. OBD 2 was government mandated and set a universal set of codes used by all makers. OBD 1 diagnostics is far more primitive and I believe proprietary to each manufacturer
