  • 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

    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.

  • by ameer tamour

    Fake, I mean litarly fake app, do not place your finger on the camera and still it will give you a random result :/ Hahahahahaha,,,, shame on you guys!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 warren jeffries

    You know it doesn't work if you can put your phone on the sink and not touch it and it shows a reading LOL TRASH

  • by A Google user

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • by annmarie lindon

    Thought it was nice til i noticed it was showing beats even when my hands were no where near it. Disappointed.

  • by shekhar kalia

    fake...even if u dont keep ur finger there..it keeps showing pulse!!!

  • 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.

  • Dr Bruce S

    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.

    heats up the led so much that its burns my finger. one plus 5 user

  • by M Pet

    Simple, pointless as there is no information or pear data to guide you how you fare.... Have a look at Cardiio on an iPhone - That is a useful app

  • by Pranay Sawant

  • by Sandra GREG
