AGraham96 - Works for what I use it for—but...
If you have tattoos you won’t have as great an experience with it. I mostly use this where I don’t have any now, because trying to see veins through ink with this just highlights the tat in white like one of those invisible ink lights.
The picture is extremely faint and grainy, but it’s great for a general idea of where to look. I don’t really love that I spent so much on this, but it’s definitely not worth deleting. I’ve gotten some good help from this thing and I recently recommended it to a friend too
Huntin lovin redneck - Costs less than your lunch will today.
So from time to time in the back of the boo boo bud I struggle to get a vein on the unstable patient that is circling the drain.
About 3 years ago I was drinking one night and stumbled across the vein seek app. I down loaded it, it cost me $4.99. I played with it at home for a little while and thought it was pretty cool. Still not sure how it works. So after a few months I picked up one of the above described pts. I stuck and stuck and stuck some more. I finally remembered I had that app, might as well give it a try, being as my pt was about to die, everything was worth a try. Sure enough I turned it on, adjusted the contrast, and boom, all the close to surface veins lit up. I sunk a 24g IV into one of the biggest veins I would find and ended up getting the pt stable enough to transport.
I’ve used this app on multiple hard sticks since. I’ve even broke it out in the er to help them out on multiple occasions. So to all my fellow providers, here’s a tool that you will always have on you and I highly recommend buying it. It may very well save your pts life.
ASmallParamedic - Better than expected!
I’m a paramedic and was looking for a cheap alternative to a vein finder for patients that are “hard sticks”. I just downloaded this and I’ve been using it to look at veins on myself and my partner and it seems awesome! I’ll admit that I wasn’t expecting much from an app, but this app already exceeds my expectations. It’s not magic and I don’t expect it to show every single vein, but it DOES show veins on my arm that I cannot see. And on veins I can see, it shows which direction the vein goes. I have not yet used it for starting an IV, but I will definitely be using it as it will be nice to have a place to start on patients where you can’t seem to find anything. I imagine this will (at the very least) give a good idea of where to start. I also see this being useful when you miss an IV and the vein feels like it’s right next to the needle to potentially save the IV and save the patient from another IV stick.
fijipa - Concerned that this actually works.
I'm a physician. I have a handheld ultrasound machine 15K not including the cost of my linear probe. But I bought this to see if this actually works. I'm a bit concerned that it does work in the middle of an IV drug epidemic since anyone can buy this, I hope this doesn't help people overdose. I think this has the potential to be dangerous.
You do have to adjust the screen and hold of 6 inches from the Arm like the developer said in a response to a poor comment. I can see this being useful although not as good as the vein finder or an Ultrasound if you don't have access to either it is well worth the $5. What is really needed is this technology to be an app for smart glasses for it to be optimally useful. Imagine your nurse starting your IV with a VR headset with camera only augmented vision to find your veins. That would be cool.
S&BMommy - Wow! Unexpectedly good.
Very much worth the $5. My charge nurse asked me to start an IV on a patient that wasn't mine, edematous, and a very hard stick. Got it on the first try without a visible vein (only found in with Vein Seek Pro.) Marked my top and bottom point and aimed between the lines. Went a little crazy and decided to check all the staffers veins too. Works great on light, medium, and very dark skin! It's not going to keep veins from rolling but the finding is much easier.
The only con I had was that it didn't work well on folks with extensive tattoos on their forearm. Ink interferes with the light spectrum. Other than that, worth every penny!
Blarghy23 - VeinSeek Works
To get the app working: 1) hold the phone FAR AWAY from the skin, 2) turn VeinSeek on (button in top right), 3) turn flashlight on (button in bottom left), and adjust contrast slowly from the left side until veins just start to appear. It's easy to use and works exactly as shown in the video, but you have to follow those directions, or it doesn't work. The directions are also repeated in the help button at the bottom right of the screen.
Dustin terrell - It worked for me!
I’m a paramedic and sometimes it’s crucial to get IV access. I have never been good at finding veins by feel, especially pediatric veins. I sweat bullets when starting IVs on kids, but I actually was able to locate a couple of good veins I couldn’t see on a pediatric patient that was fair skinned. I got the IV first try. It was well worth the price. It doesn’t make the stick for you, but it allows you to gauge a good area to start. Love this app!
NotMyKidsAccount - Save your money
I work in a hospital lab and thought this would be interesting to try. The large veins that I know are there don't show up at all. Yes, I held it far enough away. I tried it in good lighting on a variety of patients and positioned it in every way imaginable, and I didn't find this app to be useful in locating veins for blood draws. Might be useful for other applications, but not for a clinical laboratory.
claylohse - Very impressed
I was pleasantly surprised with this app. I do acute home visits and this cheap app helped me feel confident and find veins on a few patients that I would have probably not been able to get. It doesn’t show the vein if it’s very deep but if I barely feel a vein or think I might feel one, a lot of time this would me feel confident if it is a vein or not. Great tool!
Brandylynn223 - Great app! Impressed.
Just got this app. Still playing with it to figure out how it works best. So far I have been impressed. If I hold the phone about 12 in away from the skin the veins show better. Also seems to show better on the palm side of the arm. For $5 I was not expecting much, but this has far exceeded what I expected.
Unruly Hair - Exceeds Expectations
I use this app every now and again— and it works surprisingly well! I mean, considering most hospitals grade vein finders can run you up to a couple grand, I’d say this app is quite impressive for what it can do.
I thought maybe there was rumor of a 2nd version coming out at some point? Any more news on that front...? I’m definitely interested.
kwazi30 - Not too bad
I am a nurse and have used different vein finder machines, and for 5 bucks it works decent for in a bind. It would be much better if there was an infrared option like the good vein finders. I do have to pull a co-worker to hold it above for more difficult I’ve starts. None the less I have used it on my patients and it has worked.
Lovejulzz - i can’t really see much
well i don’t have many veins myself but when i used this app to locate them (not a medical professional) i found that it was hard to hold the camera and do what i have to do. i also couldn’t really see anything in the black and white camera and the flashlight made it worse. the one review suggesting goggles was good. but anyway, if you do not want to spend the $5’on this app then here is what to do: turn your iphone flashlight up all the way, take your case off, put the flashlight up to your skin in low lighting, and there we go. free vein finder.
Lorac45x - Hard to see veins
Wish it were easier to see veins
ED RN MAD - Very Disappointed
I use a vein finder at lease once a week that we have in our in ED. Most times its being used by someone else. So I decided to purchases this one so I can have my and and not have to delay patient care. After downloading and trying this app, I rather wait - what a waste of money.
7bt3 - Waste of money! DO NOT BUY!
I’d give it zero stars if I could. This app is absolutely worthless! Wish I could have tried it first, then I’d have saved $5.00! I tried it numerous times in various lighting. Couldn’t even see any veins. Adjusted the contrast and still couldn’t see veins that were visible under normal lights. Save your money and buy one of the commercial vein lights!
HanaaSAL - It’s bad not even 6 inches would show the vein
I wanted a quick solution going tomorrow to have an IV and tried this app but it doesn’t show anything except when you can see the vein with your own eyes. I tried different lights bright low and distance wise 6 in, more less but nothing worked.
thinkfst - This is not a real vein finder
This is nothing more than a black and white filter that allows you to adjust the contrast of the image with a slider, but to me it’s more like a joke if I compared it to a 2 other vein finders I own.
Of course the price can’t compare either but I wasted $6 that could have used to purchase a $200 useful REAL vein finder.
knitboy1 - Doesn’t work
This “app” simply uses lighting contrast to pick up bulging surface veins and the shadows they cast rather than actually find veins. And if you miss the veins that are bulging out of someone’s arm, you shouldn’t be starting an IV anyway. Anyone know how I can get a refund? $5.00 for an app that is useless is a scam as far as I’m concerned.
lukner - Great app. Not perfect but helpful.
This app makes use of the phone’s ability to “see” infrared (heat). It’s no panacea but works well.
Medic2CRNA - Game Changer
This app is GREAT! I don't right reviews but I had to with this one. This developer needs credit where it's deserved.
Don't hesitate. A+
Agrios - Not compatible with new iPhone 11 pro
New cameras and light on the new iPhone 11 pro do not allow enough contrast for app to work properly. I can’t see veins like I did on my iPhone 7. Not usable at the moment for me
jayrytay - Refund
App does not function as it should tried B on different type of races and sizes of arms on different levels and lighting and still a failure and disappointed I put money out for product. Looking for a refund
ChristeeFlowers - Oh yup
This app is amazing. Makes my job so much easier. Makes placing a difficult PVAD so simple!
gdfvbj - Waist of money
Your better off throwing 4.99 out the window of your car than to buy this app. But it’s my own fault for thinking an app like this really works.
Best review21 - Not for dark skinned
This app does not work if you have dark skin. I paid for it and wasted my money. I could not see my vein, I even had my colleagues tried and still could not see anything.
Nurse Cristy - Amazing
Finding this app made this home health nurses week!!! I love it!
Gynedoc - Useless
Thought this would be helpful in finding veins in difficult patients. But it is useless. Tried it on my own arm with huge vessels. Found nothing of value. Totally useless even with obvious visible large veins.
Biju2007 - Just a black and white picture
Just a black and white picture . You can see vein much clear in naked eye than this Camara. It seems the owner itself gave 5 star. Waste of money and time
Dowless@51 - Scam
Don’t know why I thought it work but it’s csm I have a reall vain finder this one is a scam
44bebet44 - Not useful
Sorry, but this app isn’t worth it. I was optimistic and bought it hoping it could help with hard sticks, but it just turns your pic into black/white.
okieviewer - Terrible
The technology is garbage. It only shows the most superficial of veins that you can see clearly without the app. This adds no benefit. Don’t waste your money.
kebl2268 - Doesn’t work in patients with poor accesss
Tried to use it several times but failed every time to locate any vein.
Susazawr - Can I give it 0 stars?
This app was absolute garbage, I wish I could get a refund on my $5 that I spent in a moment of panic and emergency. Whoever wants to get this, please read the reviews first. DO NOT GET THIS.
ka'iu528 - Meh
I was excited for the app but was only disappointed. Waste of my money. Wish I could get a refund for every vein I couldn’t find...
Nurse456 - Not impressed
Seems to only show veins you can see with your eyes anyway
brosphone2 - Don’t bother
Doesn’t work. No different than a similar app, except you have to pay $5 for this app.
NationsCartel - Very good app.
This app only works if your veins are already visible. I wasted my money on this cuz my veins aren’t visible to the naked eye. But if your veins are visible this app does help see them better.
jscyq5 - Doesn’t work
Waste of $5. Just a black and white camera app. Can’t see the veins on my own arm with this app
Unforgvn - Thumbs down
I'm a dialysis patient that gets poked on a daily basis and this app absolutely bites!!!!!! I want my $5.00 back so I can buy an app that does what it claims!!!!!! Thumbs down!!!!
lost nursing girl - Doesn't work AT ALL
I bought this thinking it was a neat and helpful tool for guidance as a nurse. NOPE I have yet to see one single vein, pretty upset I bought this.
ZHamandi - It’s terrible!
Not one vein! Nothing! I followed instructions and tried every lightning possible. I will be asking for a refund.
Jerry A. Griffin (real name) - Unusable
Unusable, please refund purchase price. Thank you, Best Regards, good luck on your next try. Sorry not even 1 star. Your feedback forum is total BS.
Andrew Reese - The Candy Man - Waste of Money
I have an iPhone+.... this did absolutely nothing and I tried different distances, slide mivement, etc...
Devildogmarine - Poor
Total rip off. Use a flashlight. Very disappointed.
thisbitch-85 - Crap
Doesn’t work I want my money back
r-roaddogg - Absolutely horrible
Doesn’t even show visible veins
blome13 - Don’t waste your money
Does not work.
Dr. Propofol - Useless garbage waste of money!
It’s more of a joke than a useful app. BTW I’m a physician

This doesn’t work. Please refund my money.

Clbboss - VeinSeekPro
Waste of money doesn’t have the right lighting to be affective on a phone. No stars warranted
ImprezzzaGT - It’s Okay .. But just Barely
Could be way better especially in this day and age with all the new tech getting around.
Plus it could be like 2 bucks instead of nearly $10.
I know to some people 10 bucks ain’t much but to others 10 bucks can get you to and from buy you lunch and Maybe a Snack ^^.
Hope to hear from you guys !!
P.S Good Work Though :)
dannickname - How to get refund? Doesn’t work!

veinseekpro - Cannot see a single vein
Could not see a single vein after multiple tries. Very disappointing.
Scotttaylor41 - diont wast your money
dont wast your money
Kfp29 - Not bad.
Not a perfect app, however with the right adjustment of setting this will help in finding a vein. Will still try to use it for patient with difficult veins. Will do a follow up review.
Mattyj001 - Gimmic, waste of money.
Gimmic, waste of money.
Nurse Canr - HUGE waste - completely useless. Not even 1/5
What a lousy app. I have veins I can normally see without a light that didn’t show up. Annoyed I wasted my money.
Douglasfur - Not really effective
Just downloaded this app, tried it on myself and it doesn’t show any veins that are not readily visible by the naked eye. Showed the veins on the forearm well but anywhere there was adipose tissue it does not show really anything. Will cont to try this app on different situations to see if its user error.
Abhi000 - Unfortunately not helpful
I went head thinking it would be great, but it didn't work
rpn nurse - SHOWS NO VEINS
do not waste your money on this. The advertising is completely deceiving. You can't even see any veins other than the ones you can already see with the naked eye. If i could i would give it 0 stars
Lisa new phone - Huge Disappointment!
Should have read the reviews before purchasing!! Huge waste of money! Only illuminates what you can already see!
disappointed RN - not worth it
only shows veins you can already see dont waste your money
Interested in this game - Do not waste your money
Bought it to check if it was legit. It's awful. It illuminates the veins you can already see; which defeats the purpose of a vein finder! Doesn't illuminate the ones you can't see or palpate. Someone had to give it a go- so I bought it. But don't waste your $!
