NOTE: Works best on iPhone 4/4S/5/5S/6/6S/7/7+ because it has flash. On iPhone 3GS and iPod touch the app has to be used in good lighting.

NOTE: Make sure that your fingertip completely covers the camera lens. Press gently, since pressing too hard reduces blood flow in your finger and it's harder to get a result. Make sure that your fingers are not cold. This app is for recreational and fitness use only!

iPhone user987

Full of pop ups and nagging messages  iPhone user987  1 star

Waste of time! Starts taking measurement then automatically opens App Store to get you to download other apps. Try switching back and it pops up ads, log in messages, and other nagging alerts. Annoying and raises your heart rate! Would rate -1 stars if I could. Deleted app!


too much pop ups  Preciouz818  1 star

I had this app years ago in my old phone and I just now reinstalled it in this new phone and for about 5min in, it was already giving me a hard time. Pop ups were getting in the way and Id have to close the entire app and reopen it just to get rid of the pop ups....waste of time!!!


Helpful  KayleyKitty  5 star

I need to constantly get an accurate reading of my heart rate and this app is truly closest to the doctors machine! Thank you I will continue to use! The only thing I don't care for is of course the ads!

John Spuler

Super gross annoying ads  John Spuler  1 star

Really annoying full screen ads. Wasn't like this before.

Bete Noire

Used to be good  Bete Noire  1 star

It used to be simple & relativity clean. Yes, there were ads, but they weren't intrusive and didn't obstruct the app's functionality. After several "updates" it's a fight to get through large screen hogging ads that block your view and sometimes can't even be closed without closing & restarting the app before you can do a reading...and that's when trying to close an ad doesn't redirect you into the App Store.


Intrusive ads make it unusable  Pwhitacre  1 star

I couldn't even get results from my heartrate test because of the ads. I'll stick with my stopwatch thank you, uninstalled.


Very nice so far  blonivta  5 star

Nice app just wish all the ads would stop


Works  skankamusic  5 star

Even with my wallet case on. It's free so idgaf about ads.......... why complain?


So. Many. Ads.  Suspence1  1 star

This used to be a great app, but over the years they have added layers upon layers of ads, login screens, requests to give Facebook details, etc. Used it today, I had to go through 6 screens of all of that to get to the HR monitor. For a simple goal, they make this painfully cumbersome.
