- Place and lightly hold your (index) finger against the back camera lens and flashlight
- Do not press too hard, otherwise blood circulation will be altered and the results could be
- When using an iPhone or iPad without a flashlight, be sure to take the measurement in a well-lit area (bright daylight works best)
- Remain calm and try not to move too much during the measurement, as this can compromise measurement accuracy
- Do not measure with cold fingers when the blood circulation is poor

Your resting heart rate varies depending on your age and training level. A very fit and athletic person has a lower resting HR than someone who’s hardly active.

Avoid this app  Daphnephoria  1 star

I purchased this app a few years ago. Since that time it has become stacked with pop-in ads, incessant solicitations for 5-star ratings, and now a limit on its use making you pay again to use the thing you already paid for. Stay away from this app. Frustrating.


Excellent App!  HMK23  5 star

Simple and effective.


Wow  Raider13FL  5 star

Just used it for the first time. Being an A Fib patient I have become paranoid and it was easy to use, fast results. I am going to explore this app even more. Thank you!


Not for 6s Plus  Salllybbbbbbbbb  1 star

It doesn't appear to work on the larger phones as the lens and light are farther apart and can't be covered at the same time as they indicate.


Yep  Dustoff287  5 star

Works like a charm.

Boo!  Boo'er  1 star

Boo this app! Booo!!


Do not download  AaronPWong  1 star

It worked fine at first however after roughly 6 days it began to take longer than usual to register an accurate reading. After about 10 days it just failed entirely. This app just wants your money for the ads. Don't download. I've already deleted.


Doesn't work with 7 Plus  Zp15a  1 star

This needs to be updated to use the telephoto camera on the 7 Plus since the regular camera is too far from the flash!!! It's not giving accurate readings. It either won't work or will give me readings 10-20 BPM lower than usual


Horrible  Jenny983  1 star

I understand having ads but having them come up in the middle of a reading is not something that should happen. There is also a 3 readings a day limit. If you are using this for more than just a fun app then I would find something else.

Xyphoid Process

Poor performance  Xyphoid Process  1 star

Worked sporadically at best. What's the point of having a heart rate monitor that takes so long to register a result that your post-workout heart rate goes down while you're waiting for a valid reading?


Works ok but...  Bmadding  1 star

The app works ok, but you need to sit through ads before you can check your pulse. If you don't feel good and want to check your HR the last thing you want to do is wait through ads.


App needs to be updated for iPhone 7 Plus!  Quad5Ny  3 star

The app needs to be updated to use the telephoto lens on the iPhone 7 Plus. This is because the normal wide angle lens is too far away from the flash and does not provide enough illumination. Also remove the login prompts that happen on every launch. This is a paid app.


Great app  Yshenouda  5 star

Really great and practical
