Heart Rate - Free
By CMG Research Ltd
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Use your iPhone's camera to measure your heart rate.
The applications detects how the colour of your finger changes when blood flows into it. Similar to the way that a medical pulse oximeter works.
Please note, this app is intended to be used for fun only and should not be used for any medical purposes.

Great for its purpose and I'd like more
It's a running view of heart rate. Perfect for my counselor work: clients are asked to be aware of heart rate during discussions. Wish it gave a report or history somehow to track anxiety over time. Pencil and paper works for now. I just list the heart rate range instead of an average as it sometimes changes quickly and it'd be impossible to gather all data points.
Disappointed that it doesn't keep any record
Very quickly and easily, it not only gives the number of beats per minute big and bold, but also shows a visual graph of each beat going up and down - not sure what the higher and lower spikes mean (would be nice if this site had more info or if the app itself did, but I can't find it - and that's about it. I'd like to see a record kept.
Ok, but confused
Think I like it, but bit confused as to the point. The app appears to measure heart rate. However, it nearly wants you to measure "forever" with no final number. Would suggest after a certain amount of time and after give some number as result. Also why ask age and sex when they appear not to correlate to anything.
