Hey Azumio, guess what?

You're not going to believe this. I just found three apps, released just this year that can do EXACTLY what your app can do (well, the one useful thing that it does anyway). And guess what else? These apps are just as accurate, polished, and easy to use as your app. Except, well, there is one minor difference... Each of the developers (I.e., your competitors) added this nifty feature that lets you pay to remove the ads. You pay . . . and the ads go away. One even comes without ads. Now I remember you guys had something like this a while back ago. Maybe you still do, I can't tell since it disappeared after I have you my money. But it was weird, there must have been a software bug somewhere or something, because the ads didn't stop. Instead they doubled. Or maybe I was confused. I know in some situations no is supposed to mean yes, maybe that was the case here. Eh well, this shouldn't be a problem for you. After all, you've got the "Stand-up Test"! Which I know from your ads has a value of $12 a month or $30 a year for the rest of my life. And that picture of the tiny little guy sitting in the tiny little chair? Priceless. I mean really, who can touch that?

Tired of purchasing for this app.. Read

UPDATE: STILL TRYING TO MAKE ME GO PREMIUM ON AN APP I PAID FOR. Still disgusted. Feel cheated and contemplating getting a refund from Apple. Such a waste. Thanks for ripping me off. I'll just buy a heart rate monitor from Walgreens. At least it won't try to get me to subscribe after I pay for it. Slimey.

I am so tired of having to make purchases for this app to get the maximum usage out of it! I paid for the app for $1.99, THEN I bought the stand-up test for $3.99, NOW it is asking for a subscription?!? Are you kidding me? They took away the graph feature and now if you want to use it you have to subscribe!

I'll admit that their customer service is prompt and courteous but that is it. I'm looking for another app that isn't so money hungry now. I already paid you, I shouldn't have to keep paying you for the app when it was initially free and I upgraded to "premium". What does my upgrade cover that the free version doesn't? Bad move guys. Bad. Move. Could not be anymore displeased with a company than I am right now and I originally left a 5 star rating. I feel cheated.

Pesters You!!

I will never "log in" to check my pulse rate. I will never share my email address with this company. In fact, of all the companies I would definitely not share my email address with, this one would be at the top of the list!! And why is that? They continually nag me to check out all their other products! The app is an "ad fest" for everything else they wish to sell me!

Every single time I use the app I must select "remind me later" before I can check my pulse. Extremely annoying!

Guess what? The only thing "remind me later" is doing is reminding me to keep updating this 2 star review. D'oh!

Did I mention that I actually bought the premium version to remove ads? That was a total waste of my money. Premium is now a monthly subscription. Wasn't when I paid for it! No way I'm paying every month! What a rip off!

Update: Just clicked on "remind me later" so that I could bypass the login and check my pulse. It then, once again, as it has done so many times in the past, nagged me to write a 5 star review. So here I am updating my 2 star review! Needless to say, my pulse rate seemed a bit high when I was finally able to check it, lol. Sigh.

Perhaps it should be pointed out that just because the company asks you to write a 5 star review it does not mean that you must. How on earth can so many been obeying when they constantly pester you? Surely it is a mystery of the ages.
