Eureka! It finally works on iPhone 6/iOS8!
After almost 6 months, Runtastic finally updated this heart rate monitor app so it works with the iPhone 6/6+ and iOS8. It even has Apple health kit integration. I've only taken a few measurements but it seems to be working as expected.
My only quibble is that I wish they would make the heartbeat sound optional because I think it unconsciously excites the user, speeds up your heart a bit, and gives a slight measurement error.
Perfect if you're healthy
This app is great for measuring your heart rate. My only complaint is that I have a heart condition and when my heart is acting up I try to take my HR and I can see the line bobbing up and down and it has the bpm listed, but the tutorial comes up and tells me I'm not holding it correctly and it won't accept my measurement. It has happened on several occasions, but it otherwise works very well if you have a normal heart.
Works about 40% of the time
I did a search for the most accurate heart rate monitors. This one was in the top 10 for accuracy. It seems accurate when it works. Most times, it states that its detecting HR and measuring HR. Then it gives the "error" message instructing me on how to use the app.
Also, it doesn't seem to have an athlete's setting. My RHR is around 46. This seems to cause the app to glitch.
