Choice Compass is a scientifically tested decision making app that uses a U.S. patent-pending method to access the mind-body process of decision making to help you make a more informed decision by literally "listening to your heart."
Choice Compass helps you by analyzing changes in your heart rhythm that occur as you concentrate on 2 choices you are considering (“stay here” versus “move”). The app then reports which decision is closer to your heart’s dynamics - associated with positive, rather than negative choices.
Here's an excellent explanation of the science behind the application and how our Choice Compass decision making app works: http://www.choicecompass.com/decision-making-process/

How to Use:
1. Type in 2 short choices for the question you’re trying to get answered.
2. Start a 5-second countdown as the decision making app measures your heart rhythm.
3. During this time, also think about the decision you’re trying to get answered.
4. Once the app has finished, view the results for your choice comparison.
• Easy-to-use interface, with tutorial at launch and tips at the top of the screen to help you learn how to better listen to your heart.
• Loads previously used choice pairs.
• Tracks the results when a particular choice pair is tested multiple times. This way, you can see which of the two choices wins on average over time.
• Tips available for making your results more accurate.
• Read about the science behind Choice Compass.
• Share Choice Compass decision results to Twitter and Pinterest.
• Turn sound on/off.
• Send feedback.
• Share Choice Compass with a friend.
How it Works:
Researchers in neuroscience and psychology have found that unconscious processes are sometimes better at coming up with solutions to many decisions, than what our everyday conscious thought processes allows. In essence, Choice Compass provides a link to your subconscious mind-body connection by using the results of basic physiological research. It shows that a calm state of joy/compassion/bliss is accompanied by more rhythmic heart activity.
About the Inventor:
The creator of Choice Compass, Dr. Julia Mossbridge, is a neuroscientist and perceptual psychologist. Working outside the lab on her own time, she gathered data that drives the patent-pending algorithm that powers Choice Compass.
Choice Compass is not meant to diagnose or treat any disease. The choice algorithm is based on average data and you should use common sense when following its advice.
Note: Choice Compass requires a minimum hardware of the iPhone 4GS or newer (not iPhone 4 or 4S) in order to provide the camera frame rates necessary to detect heart rhythms used by its algorithms.

Based on feedback and heart rate data from multiple testers, we improved the algorithms Choice Compass uses to both detect heartbeat rhythms and analyze these rhythms.
Because we found a gender difference in the data that seems likely to be produced by hormones, we now ask you to choose a gender before you use the app. If the previous version of the app was working well for you, choose "female" as your gender, because the new "female" algorithm is closest to the algorithm in the previous version. If the previous version of the app often chose what seemed like the wrong choice to you, choose "male" as your gender. Otherwise, just choose the gender that is closest to your own, and read Choice Compass Tips (in Settings) for more information about gender.
Added Twitter and Pinterest sharing buttons to enable you to easily share a Choice Compass session result.
Enhanced the documentation for how to achieve the best results and to further explain the science behind Choice Compass.
Ratings and Reviews
The gender thing is intriguing
I liked the original version, but I'm a woman and I read that the update is similar if you are female. This one seems more fine tuned. I'm intrigued by the gender thing -- I want to learn more about how men and women have different heart rhythm reactions to ideas and thoughts. Wild.
Love the update.
I love the new new gender update! Now Choice Compass can be set for a male or female user. It's much more accurate. I love that this app reads me.
It gives me honest and powerful direction. I trust what it has to say.
Ran tests with obviously far preferable scenarios compared to essentially terrible ones and the terrible ones won out as often. Wish I could get my money back for this claptrap.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
