Ratings and Reviews
Make the app playback louder.
Stethoscope OK. Does amplify sound as advertised, noise cancellation could be improved but acceptable. Please continue to improve. I would also like more comfortable earpads, the Littmann has larger, more comfortable earpads.
My main complaint is that the App is poor. Playback is very quiet when using any device except the stethoscope. Playback on iPhone speaker almost inaudible at max volume, playback on Bluetooth headphones just as bad. It’s not a problem with my ears, I’m in my late 20s with no hearing loss... playback is just quiet.
Also the sound of the recording does not match the tracing of the heart sounds, it is off by a second or so. They should sync up to be useful. It feels like a cheap mistake.
Finally, entering the pin to access recordings is annoying, I feel like it should have Face ID/touch ID like most other apps.
Overall I’m disappointed in the quality to price ratio. $300 is a premium, you need to reflect that. You guys have potential, please fix the app.

Thank you for your feedback.
We don't advise that users playback audio through the speakers of their mobile device, bodily sounds are too low frequency to be adequately reproduced by the speakers of a mobile device or even PC. Plug-in headphones and you should be able to listen to the audio much better. Make sure that the option to 'Play from iPhone' is toggled to On in the Settings panel, may help some. You can also playback and listen to sounds through the CORE itself.
Also using other Bluetooth connected devices like headphones is not recommended; limitations with the Bluetooth bandwidth will result in poor auscultation transmission.
If you've set up a PIN TouchId should be available to you (appears at the bottom right of the screen). We don't currently support FaceID.

Sorry to say....!
The app seems very intuitive but the audio playback out of my iPhone speakers is horrendous. Even in a quiet room, the playback from the sample audios provided is barely perceptible and I can’t see how I would be able to share the audios with a patient or even save them in a chart. As an adjunct to a medical device, QUALITY is paramount and as of this time, the app gets a fail, period. If I can’t hear the audio clearly at least 2 feet away with my speakers all the way up, I consider that as horrendous quality. Not to mention that it does not even work with touchID or FaceID....seriously...!

Playback is extremely quiet. App needs lots of work
There should be a way to delete individual tracings, as opposed to the whole patient.
As the other reviewer said, play back is virtually useless. It is completely inaudible in a noisy setting, like an operating room. I can’t comment on the synchronization of the audio and the tracing, because I couldn’t hear the audio.
This is disappointing. I was excited to obtain this new tool, however, the way it stands currently it is more of a novelty than a useful tool.

Thank you for your feedback! To delete a recording, just click on the recording in the app and scroll down to select "Delete Recording." You do not need to delete a patient in order to delete a recording. I hope that helps! Regarding the playback volume, we recommend always using headphones to ensure good sound quality and high volume.
