WHAT USERS ARE SAYING

7-day and 30-day history
It uses optics where as the pediatric finger monitors use minute pressure changes to detect the pulse. You're finger tips are filled with blood capillaries, try a finger stick and see how much you bleed, and your arteries turn into veins in your finger tips (and toes) reversing the direction of the body's blood flow. The pediatrics Pulse/Oximeter (for one example) or just a finger pulse monitor gets the infant's or adolescent's pulse rate (the Pulse/Oximeter gathers more data than just the pulse).
This app tests out just fine. I ran numerous test against my Sphygmomanometer (blood pressure taking device) and it was never more than 2 points different at the most and occasionally it matched exactly. (By the way, I've worked in Healthcare all my adult life...since 1973).
I learned of the app through one of our local hospital's mail flyers for their "Healthy Hearts" initiative. You do need to calm down and sit still to let you heart rate normalize to get the best readings though. This is not a toy nor is it a gag!
Amazing idea with a simple interface.
I am impressed by this app overall. Graphically, it is somewhat plain. Its usefulness, however, more than makes up for the simplistic interface. Being so easy to use, I will definitely recommend this to my senior parents to use on their iPad. The accuracy isn't perfect, but it is good enough to get the general idea. Although the price is slightly high, I am pleased with this purchase. My only suggestion would be to add some simple extras to the side tools menu to make the app more complete and worth the price. Possibly a timer to manually check the pulse, and maybe some not too technical info about the cardio system, etc.
Really funny app
If you really think this app works the you have to be joking. It's a great practical joke at but it isn't realistic. I give credit to the developers for developing something like this it's great to use at parties or with friends. Although it's a joke at the results aren't too unrealistic, and are actually pretty accurate. 5stars/5stars!
