Good App Gone Bad x2!!!!

For the last 2+ years this had been one of the best apps on my iPod. The application could quickly detect and record my heart rate, simply holding my index finger to the camera lens. Previously it let you record how you feel and add notes, for future reference. I had even used it to show my cardiologist irregular beat problems. This was such a great app I bought the Premium version. Then 1) I upgraded my iPod to a new generation (the one that uses the iPhone6 camera) and it stopped working. It wouldn't work on the iPad Air2 either. I notified Azumio ablut the problem and they said they would have a fix by September 2015, and that never happened. 2) The new version 5 of this application (still doesn't work on the iPod, but works on the iPad) but is now a socil media subscription based piece of JUNK!!. Now the app it wants you to log-in to Facebook, or add your email to their database, and the Premium service at $4.99 per month, or wait the special price of $30/year. No thanks. Not to mention they contimue pushing their other apps, even if they are already installed on your device. Fix the app and make it a fixed price to own the software.

Works well, good redesign

I've tried all the pulse measuring apps I can find, and this is by far the best. It is accurate and quick, and much more tolerant of slight movement than any other app. It's easy to accurately measure my pulse while riding a bike, for example. The latest redesign mostly fixes my main complaint about earlier versions, which was that it pestered you for their other apps; this version has moved that into the background and now hardly bugs you at all after the first launch. There are multiple other nice touches, like the Health app integration and the well-designed tag system in this redesign. RECOMMENDED

So Grateful for this App

This is one of those apps that help to bring about a change in your life. I've always wanted a heart monitor device but wasn't ready to spend the big bucks. Then I found this app that checks your heart rate by using your phone!!!!! That just blew my mind. I use it most everyday and in conjunction with other health monitoring apps. If I hand to identify something that's not totally perfect about it it would be that sometimes it takes a while to pickup on my pulse. That's it. Most every other time it works great. I've recommended it to my family and friends and I recommend it to you.
