When you're stressed, your heart and breathing get out of sync. Breathe Sync™ gets your breathing and heart back in sync fast, so that you feel more relaxed and think more clearly. (No external sensor required.)
Breathe Sync™ is a simply designed iPhone app that helps you get in sync wherever you are. It picks up your pulse through your finger on the iPhone camera lens, analyses it and gets you breathing in sync with your heart. We call this synchronised biofeedback breathing. You'll call it 'a great way to feel great fast'.
After only 1-3 minutes you will feel more centred, more relaxed and more able to think clearly. Breathe Sync™ directly affects your Autonomic Nervous System which helps reduce your stress levels.
It is also the world's first biofeedback breathing app that also gives you a well-being score, your WQ™, so you can track your progress. Your WQ™ is based on your pulse rate variation, which is affected by your nervous system, and gives a good indication of your inner well-being.
Over 16,000 people around the world use Breathe Sync™ for a number of things everyday -
1, To reduce stress
2, To relax
3, To get in the zone (to perform, to create or to produce)
4, To alleviate anxiety
5, To aid mindfulness and meditation
6, To prepare for sleep
7, To lower blood pressure*
8, To increase self-control
9, To improve their immune system
10, To measure and track their inner well-being
11, To feel good fast
Get in sync now. Follow your heart.

Similar to a hardware product called Stress Eraser I had years ago...this app uses your camera to read your pulse and help synchronize your breathing. I like the audio and visual cues that let you either breathe with your eyes open or close. Works pretty well so far.
Won't work on my iPhone 6 Plus!
I cannot get the app to work. It opens successfully but won't work beyond that. I've deleted and downloaded it again, to no avail. Oddly enough, it works fine on my wife's phone (same model).
Not on this iPad
On OS8 and only get a circling arrow. My finger is over the camera on the back of ipad. Won't read it, evidently. Will give more stars if there's a fix soon. Or- delete will be next step. Sorry.
