  • Excellent for characterizing cardiac rhythm

    By Alabama redneck (educated)
    I have been cardioverted twice for atrial fibrillation. Thus, it is important that I monitor my cardiac rhythm regularly. A few months ago I noticed an interesting anomaly in rhythm when I looked at my heart rate. Every third beat occurred earlier than the two previous beats and showed less blood flow. this pattern was reproducible. As a Med school professor, I had an MD/PhD student who studied genetic changes in young and old rat hearts due to aging, thus I am familiar with ecgs. I suspected a condition termed trigeminy in which every third beat is a premature ventricle contraction (PVC) beginning in the ventricle instead of the SA node. I emailed the graph to my cardiologist who had me come in for an ECG. It confirmed my “diagnosis” that indeed I was in trigeminy. Subsequently flow normalized and I have not again seen this condition. Electrolytes such as sodium and potassium play crucial roles in regulating cardiac rhythm so this condition could have been due to lower than normal concentration of an electrolyte such as potassium.
  • Great App

    By Douglas the II
    I have used this app prior on an older iPhone. Back about a year ago I didn’t care for it because it wasn’t as accurate. Now since I think the Developer did some tweaking and fixed it I have no complaints. I have actually used it along with a true 3 lead heart monitor and it is maybe one or two BPM off but that’s a huge improvement from the older versions. I recommend holding you index finger sideways pointing to the right side of your phone with the camera. For some reason you get a more accurate reading that way. Just a suggestion! I recommend this app to anyone who like me has heart issues. I suffer from sinus tachycardia and this is pretty much the best app. Also you get the free stress test as well as participation in the Heart Disease Study when you sign up. Anything I can do to help scientist and doctors treat heart issues and save lives I’m happy to review this app. I don’t review a lot of my apps but this one is deserving!
  • Mr. RTH

    By Thonehill
    Works very well and matched my blood pressure machine within 2 beats. Make sure you use light pressure with your finger. At first I could not get a reading because I was using too much pressure . I've had this app for some time now . Since I have a bad heart, I use it all the time. This is one of my most important app's. I am not sure why this app is asking me to submit a second review? My review would be the same as above. I have a bad heart so I find this app very handy indeed since I almost always carry my phone with me. Plus it reminds me to check my heart rate! This is a great app! Very cool indeed! Note: In Aug 2019 this App was showing that I was having a uneven heart beat. The medical doctors told me that my heart was doing fine. Aug 15 I had a major heart attack. Thank God I survived .. My heart surgeon told me that I had survived many heart attacks in the past and no one caught it.
  • Unfortunate requirement to create login

    By kfr3d
    The good news is the measurement technique appears to work great. The bad news is you can only use the app once before being prompted to give your facebook account or email address to create a login. This day and age, I'm simply not willing to give everyone and their dog my email address or access to my facebook profile just to use their app, it indicates that my personal data collected on this app is probably being stored online and potentially available to the developers. I don't care what their privacy policy says, it's only a matter of time before an unscrupulous app developer following this model lies and sells that data to advertisers to start selling me heart medication or health products. I would much prefer a standalone, offline only app that only saved data locally. EDIT: it is now possible to use the app without signing in! Thank you Azumio. More stars for you.
  • Great App!!

    By Still tick'n
    I have been using this app now for several months. I use it at various times of the day during my activities. I am 69 now but have been active all my life and this app lets me know my heart rate before and after activities. I swim 1 1/2 miles almost daily and the app makes it quick and convenient to keep an accurate record of my heart rate. My resting heart rate now ranges between the upper 40’s to the mid 50’s. And, without this app I would not have known my rate was so good. I used to try checking my heart rate by trying to measure my pulse by doing it the old manual way was a pain; as I always had to have a watch or clock in which to take a measurement. No longer, as I just place my finger on the light of my iPhone and it not only takes a convenient measurement but keeps a record. Love this app!!!
  • Terrible app

    By Animal attack
    I paid the $9.99 for one month to test the credibility of this app. It is terrible to say the least. The only perk is that you can check your heart rate, lots of free apps where you can do that, and that’s about it. The stand up test is the real joke. No matter what you do it gives you a low score, I’m extremely healthy, I have regular doctor visits and am very physically fit, and this consistently gives me lower than 50% rating. Even though my heart rate is 58 BPM. Not to mention it never explains to you why you’re receiving the score you got it just gives you a random score and makes you feel horrible. If that isn’t bad enough, you can not compare it with other peoples because the friend system DOES NOT WORK! You cannot add or view other people and they probably do this so you can’t compare your ridiculous scores. I give this app a 0/10 because the free version is complete garbage and littered with ads popping up every second. Do not waste your time or money on this. You’ve been warned!
  • My Cardiologist....

    By Kknola
    I saw my cardiologist today, and I told him about this app on my cell phone – my iPhone, and he was really enthusiastic and excited about it. I have had times when I have needed to know what my heart rate was, and I just couldn’t do it the typical away. Well, I got this, and I can take my heart rate whenever I want or need to. It’s easy to use, and I think it’s pretty accurate. It’s one of the best apps I have ever gotten because it really helps me. I get tachycardia, and he has asked me what my heart rate was when I got it, and I never could give an answer. Well now I can, but I sure hope I don’t get tachycardia anymore. I feel like I’m taking better care of myself. I think it’s just great! And it was free! I may upgrade soon. Thanks for creating this app! Blessings! 😊
  • This app is not free

    By YahYah24
    The app takes a reading and then locks you on a screen that forces you to give either your e-mail address or your Facebook account information. I tried to get around it, thinking this app is free. But I couldn’t. So I put in an alternate e-mail address I send junk mail to like I do with all apps that pull this type of sucker move on users. Then, after casually selecting the option that the app save my heart rate it sticks me on this inescapable screen that tells me I can use it something like 7(?) times for free but then it’s $9.99(?) a month. Dear App Developer. This 1 star review wouldn’t be here if there was transparency from the start. I’m having a heart issue. It’s why I downloaded this app. Thanks for frustrating me even more while trying to use it. Much appreciated. My advice is to download an app that’s actually either free, a reasonable one time cost, or at the least - is completely transparent in the description that this app is subscription based only.

    By Shaaron24
    These people know exactly what they’re doing ... They scammed me out of money by renewing my subscription and tallying it up without my knowledge for months when I was only under the free trial. then one day I wake up and have a bill from Apple for $63???? For THIS app ??? Since WHEN is it okay to do this to someone without telling them every month ? I didn’t even agree to this . I didn’t even want to renew the free trial .This app isn’t even worth the ridiculous monthly price they try to charge . Would be better off buying one from Walgreens and would save you WAY more money . they scammed me. Since when is it ok to charge someone or hold someone accountable for something without letting them know ? Without giving them a proper billing statement or ANYTHING ?i didn’t use the app for months let alone have a single transaction from them then boom I see this ? I WILL be requesting a refund and I hope no one else purchases this app and falls victim to this , OUTRAGEOUS
  • Alerted Dr.

    By snfkolhs
    One day I had a sudden onset of chest discomfort. Noticing that my heart rate seemed to be speeding I used the heart rate app to take my heart rate. It showed a rate of 127 and from the readout of the pattern I could tell that it was also very irregular. When it seemed to settle down, I did the same procedure again and saw a normal heart rate and rhythm. When I went to the Dr. a few days later I showed him the two readings and the huge difference between the two. This alerted him and caused him to put me in a 30 day heart monitor. Being able to show him the readout from this heart rate app was much better than just listening to my symptoms. It convinced him that something out of the ordinary happened and he is suspecting I may be having episodes of Afib.
