NOTE: Works best on iPhone 4/4S/5 because it has flash. On iPhone 3GS and iPod touch it 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!

OK up to a point.
It seems reasonably accurate for measuring resting pulse rate. I have no problems with it measuring up to around 85 or so BPM. But whenever I try working out or do any exertion that gets my heart up near 90 BPM or more this app cannot measure it. I've made sure my hands are clean, have tried several finger positions over the camera lens, have tried almost all my fingers, but nothing works. After the pulse slows down to about 85 BPM it starts to get readings again. At this point I'd say it's OK for curiosity sake to get resting BPM but not for any serious monitoring of heart rate.
Update: feb, '14. Still no better even after some app updates. It's OK if you're not doing anything but it simply won't read any pulse rate over about 85 BPM. It does register some fluttering if you have an occasional irregular pulse.
The med. That challenges the norm.
I have had a really challenging time with medications that like to regulate my immune system for close to 8 yrs now. The latest med. possesses a couple of side effects that lately needs to be moderately monitored to avoid a gotcha situation. This app is playing a very big roll in making sure that my BP rate does not drop to low. I have been using the app 24/7 now for 2 weeks and I can say with its simplicity it sure is giving me some pease of mind.
This truly a great App.
I have AFib & I use to have to break out my BP Monitor wrap it around my upper arm to get my ❤️ Rate then log it in a book. This is a Great App for me. It's Convenient & Quick & I can take Notes. I'm so Thankful & Pleased it was Created. I just went to ER last week when my ❤️ Was in AFib & showed it to the Drs., Nurses & Ambulance medics& they all Marveled. I also compared my BPMs with the one they had me hooked up to in the ER room & it was Pretty Accurate so Thank You Kindly! For Creating it...👏👏😊
