Ratings and Reviews
Good teaching tool!
1st, this app is NOT a game.
2nd, the app requires the Heartbuds device to work appropriately.
3rd, To hear the heartbeat (or lung sounds) while you are recording, plug your earbuds into the Heartbuds device. Save your recording to the app. Playback your recording over your device speaker system. It's nice to be able to let the patient hear their own heartbeat. If you can use a stethoscope, you can use the Heartbuds device and app with ease.
4th, I'll give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ when they release a Bluetooth version
Thank you from a nursing instructor.
Works for me
I bought the device for fun and it works fairly well after I played with it for a while. I found that pressing it too hard makes buzzing noises that makes the quality worse. As for the app, I cannot figure out how to "set brand" for the life of me. Thankfully, it works w/o registering so I'm not even sure what the point is. Perhaps you can get unlimited recording if you "set brand" (w/o it it stops recording after 2 minutes or so.)
Works great, can record and play back heart beat.
Thank you for the APP.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
