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!

Instant Heart Rate: HR Monitor Reviews


Not worth a rating  Vnfekgnuitegie  1 star

I've taken or tried to take my heart rate several times and it gives me a result of between 130-172 BPM. These are all taken while seated wearing another HR monitor. Move along, nothing worth getting here!

Complete garbage  bp81937474  1 star

Couldn’t get past the permanent pop up ad to even take my pulse once after it made me create and account or link to my Facebook while it said I had a week left of my trial. Utter crap. Popups sending me to surveys when trying to X out of them. Immediately deleted.


Is it charging my iTunes account:(  SPHawaii  3 star

The developer reached out when I groused on-line about some issues, so I appreciate that.


Unsatisfied customer307  whywhocares  1 star

Not paying money for a heart rate monitor app, should be free its to basic


Not free as advertised, gains total access to your device  Caycedece  1 star

I do not believe for one second the high reviews for this app. Once it loads to your device you have to give it permission to access your device in fact it states that even when not in use it will run continuously and may drain your battery. To use it you put your finger against your camera lens (if you have a protection cover on your IPad or IPhone you’ll need to remove it) then your supposed to get your heart rate reading, BUT there are constant pop ups to buy “extra” features or a professional version. It’s very difficult to hold your finger still against the camera lens and close down the pop ups at the same time. It took me 20 minutes to get one reading. You can only do one reading in a 24 hour period of time, so once a day. Worst app ever.

Scammy, spammy and naggy  angry from darlinghurst  1 star

Scammy because instead of closing the ad, the little red x opens it. Spammy because it forces you to register then the email blasting begins. Naggy because you only get a few inaccurate reads before you have to upgrade to premium. Don’t waste your time.

Don’t trust these people  Electricbambi  1 star

Opened the app and took a measurement, once done a screen pops which tells me I have to sign up with email to save the reading. I sign up, then next screen tells me I can access the app free for 14 days then after that $14.99!!!! It’s a heart rate monitor!! And there’s no mention of payment or limited trial periods in the description - deceptive conduct! Deleting immediately


JOASI  Joasi5  2 star

Ignoramus finder

Invasive data gathering app  Ignoramus finder  1 star

This app requires an email address or Facebook login before it’ll operate. I’m not so bothered by that as you can put in any nonsense email address and it’ll work. To be fair, it works ONCE before that was necessary. What bothers me is then it demands a reminder to check your heart rate: daily, weekly or custom. There is no option to turn this off. I tried setting up a custom reminder and turning off all days but it wouldn’t work. The only reason for such tight controls is to gather data they have no business having. This app was deleted from my phone within minutes of opening it.

Heart rate monitor is accurate. I have checked it at the cardiologist office.


Stupid stupid stupid  TheBelgianGuy  1 star

After 9 pulse measurements over a couple days I now can’t do anything without going premium. Nope. You guys have a poor business model and wasted my time.


Accurate App  Tcupp67  5 star

I have been using this app for a while. One Saturday I felt my heart racing and used the app. My heart rate was 153. I thought this can’t be right. It went like this the whole weekend. At work on Monday, my heart was still racing. I really didn’t think much about it. I walked two miles that day. The next day this was still happening. I took my heart rate with the app and it was over 160. I was light headed and just felt weird. I went to the ER and after an examination, the doctor told me I was in Afib. I was admitted to the ICU and my heart was set back into a normal rhythm. I’m set to see a cardiologist and I am being treated for sleep apnea. I’m on meds to keep my heart in rhythm normal. I am a 52 year old woman. My mother died suddenly of a heart attack at 53. If I hadn’t been keeping track of my heart rate, I would just have put it down to fatigue or menopause. This app is correct.


Not free.  DosMJGs  1 star

Nice idea, but no. The “free” demo only works just long enough to start demanding money or personal info.


Convenient and fast  uskowalski  5 star

Only took a second. Finally something useful. Need more functions to validate the price of this iPhone. Thanks
