    I am an engineer, I tested the app by measuring a known beat. It produced wrong EKG. so clearly this app is garbage and full of misleading information

  • Totally inaccurate & unreliable

    by adougj

    I have been using this for a couple of weeks. I compared the readings with one of those finger pulse/oxi meters that doctors are now using. The heart rate measurements were not the same. Sometimes very different. I also compared with a BP cuff. Same inaccuracies. The graph of the heart beats is also totally off. It appears to be fake. I have tried contacting the vendor and they have not responded. STAY AWAY FROM THIS

    I measured my heart rate same time with this app and and taking reading in a traditional way. App gave me somewhat correct reading once. Other readings were incorrect, example 60/89. This app is not giving proper readings. But I know that camera can be used for this purpose, if it is good enough. Idea is that camera registers rhythm from tiny blood vessels on skin. So without proper light and good camera this is not recommended. Maybe good idea is to use clean finger too.

    Utterly misleading rubbish.. ...so don't bother downloading this App! I only tried it for one reason - curiosity, and it failed to impress: it gave a totally different result each time, so NOT reliable! Besides which, you should NEVER rely on these Apps, because the outcome will differ from device to device. If concerned, ALWAYS consult a professional in these matters, or you could worry yourself sick about nothing...NOT a good idea, and DEFINITELY NOT an App. you should use...EVER!!! Uninstalled.

  • by Linda J. Fricker

    Absolute rubbish. I was taking my pulse with my free hand and didn't match up at all. Also I have ectopic heartbeats and although I could feel them there was nothing to correspond on the monitor.

  • Misleading... fake waveforms

    by kingoblues

    Accurate to take pulse, but the waveforms are fake. I think it was misleading to make it look like you are getting more data back than you are. Want my money back.

  • Loud and inaccurate

    by BlooCube

    What’s with all the beeping when the volume is off? Took 4 resting readings in a row and they increased from 68 to 85. Used a real monitor and got a consistent 70. If you have heart issues and/or need to check your heart in public, this is not the app for you.

  • by john vitale

    I liked this app until I ran it without putting my finger on the camera and it still showed heart beats. False readings. I removed it.

  • by ChiomaKaye

    Is there away you can create the from turning on camera light? It burned my finger after holding it on the lens a few seconds.

  • Major flaw

    by PippinSays

    It show the heart rate ok, but it will only save it if the heart rate is regular and normal rate. I want to show my doctor when rate was irregular and jumped from fast to slow. It is worthless at this point.

  • by A Google user

    Doesn't do anything on Samsung S7. Shows a fake graph instead of the actual sensor waveform

  • I’m sorry

    by debald1

    I’m sorry to give it such a bad review, but I tried 23-30 times both front and back camera without getting a successful reading.

  • Works great for normal rhythm

    by Sa654

    The app records heart rate if everything is OK. I have tachycardia. During an episode, it fails to work, and gives error message every time.

  • Does not work!

    by Sweetgrlooh

    Waste of money does not work correctly.

    by dr Bruce S

    Much artifact gave erroneous results when checked against wrist pulse.

  • Misleading!

    by LoLaMC

    I had the older version of this app from the same developer and a few days ago there was a message asking me to upgrade to the new version for free. I did and was charged $1.99!

  • Worthless, ineffective piece of junk.

    by science_chick21

    Even if I sit PERFECTLY still like it wants me to, this fails to capture a pulse or is wildly inaccurate: it shows 54 BMP with an irregular heartbeat right AFTER I stop exercising . It's only two bucks, but get a small latte instead.

    didnt work.

  • by Jacob Dongon

    my s9+ sensor turns on but the app does nothing.

  • by Anupom Ghose

    Completely fake. Heart rate doesn’t without sensor and this one uses camera only that even works with red light.
