- When using an iPhone without a flashlight, be sure to take the measurement in a well-lit area (bright daylight works best)

Worse than free version

Edit: If on an iPhone 6, don't bother with this app. After upgrading my phone I truly did waste my money on this. Further, with no updates to this app since January, it is clear that the developers have no intentions of fixing the problems reported. Save your money and buy a better app.

I originally tried the free version of this app for a science project with my daughter and it worked well enough that when I started needing to check my heart rate often I bought the full version. I should have either kept the free version or bought something else. Sure, there are no annoying ads for games, but when I need to get a heart rate quickly I don't like first having to exit ADS for the company's other apps! I paid to get rid of ads, not have the game ones gone but still have ads! The app also hangs and crashes quite a bit on my iPhone5 when the free version didn't! Sure, it was only $2 but I could have saved my money and bought an app that was actually ad free and stable with that instead. If updates fix this I will revise my review. As it stands, my money feels wasted.

Room for improvement

It does everything it says, and though I haven't compared.. I have no reason to doubt the accuracy. However, I do wish there were more options for times taken, a customizable list would be nice: for people who test things like waking up, going to bed, before/after meal rather than "general."

Lastly, this is just personal, but I'd love the option of turning the phone sideways or something and getting a graph view with adjustable time frames and multiple filters at once. I know changing an app is a lot of trouble though, so I don't expect this from the busy team but keep up the good work!

Bad App

I have tried this app many times on my iPad Air. I followed the instructions about going in to General settings and turning on background refresh, but this program doesn't even show up in the list of programs that can be refreshed. I want to App Store to see the list of apps purchased to see if the program needs to be updated. And could not find it in the list of programs purchased even though it shows up on my screen as being available and I am able to open it. I try to connect with the developer and cannot sign in our set up an account not sure what the problem is it says it recognizes my email but I never was at their website before to set up any kind of account. I need a refund of the do 1.99 I spent on this product.
