- our Privacy Policy and terms of use:

NOTE: Works best on iPhone 4/4S/5/5S/6/6S/7/7+ because it has flash. On iPhone 3GS and iPod touch the app has to be used in good lighting.

NOTE: Make sure that your fingertip completely covers the camera lens. Press gently, since pressing too hard reduces blood flow in your finger and it's harder to get a result. Make sure that your fingers are not cold. This app is for recreational and fitness use only!

Customer Reviews

Prepare to be asked for more money--often

I generally don't feel strongly enough about apps to write reviews, but this one has to be written. Once upon a time this app was free...and useful. Then one day it quit working. After trying many things I finally figured out the app was no longer free, and free versions weren't working. I paid the five bucks for the app and got a functional version again. Then one day it quit working again. I updated the app and logged in, only to find all my saved heart rate checks had been deleted, and now it was taking me three ad screens just to get to the heart rate monitor--and that's if I was lucky. Apparently buying the app doesn't exclude you from ads--it entitles them to now demand I pay 10 bucks a month for premium on every other screen. I can't recommend this app, because its creators are too greedy to leave well enough alone. I never know when I'm going to log in and find I can use the app, and when I'm going to log in and find they're twisting my arm for more money.

Best heart rate app hands down!

I've been using this app for a few years now. I initially had a machine that went on my finger to take my heart rate (which I do still use at home because it does my oxygen as well) but this is way more convenient to use when I'm out and about. I actually do use this along with my pulse ox machine because this records you heart rate for you. My Dr. was skeptical of the apps recordings at first so he tested it against the Dr office pulse ox machine then against himself with his stethoscope taking my heart rate. It's spot on! He actually downloaded the app on his phone too!

As a nurse I recommend using this app

I'm a nurse and have compared the instant heart rate app feature with state of the art hospital used pulse oximeters and the data was consistently accurate. The app is very convenient, easy to understand and genuinely provides an edge to your wellness plan by tracking your heart rate and being able to tag your activity level at the time it's calculated. Great for keeping a health journal. Love this app!
