The best Health & Fitness app on Mobile Premier Awards 2011 according to the jury of industry experts and as seen on Dr. OZ show.

Instant Heart Rate uses your iPhone's camera to detect the pulse from your fingertip - leveraging similar technique as used in pulse oximeters.
Place the tip of your index finger on the iPhone’s camera, and in a couple of seconds your pulse will be shown. Instant Heart Rate will beep with your pulse. A real-time chart will show you every heart beat.

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!

Like it, and suggestions how to use
Just went to the doctors, who measured me at 93BPM. This app measured me at 96, but measurements varied by three in either direction. What I did was re-measure myself, but did the following:
* I was completely at rest.
* I placed my finger on the camera lens, at a 45 degree angle.
* and most importantly, I held my finger steady using my thumb and forefinger - so the thumb was on the front of the iPhone. While holding it steady, but did not press down too hard.
The results were a consistent 92 or 93 BPM.
If you hold your finger steady with thumb and forefinger, and relax while tested, I believe the app is really super accurate.
Quick & Easy
I use this app to keep track of my pulse during different activities. I use it at various stages of my workout to give me a quick measure of how hard I am working. My husband also has this app and showed it to his doctor, who had never heard of it. His doctor tried it and now recommends it to his other patients.
Accurate and Useful
I've had this app for several months now, and I've used it in several different activities and situations. It works and it is accurate. I tested it against the readings the hospital took during a recent visit. Probably the best thing is I don't have to find a watch or an artery; just start the app and put my finger on the camera.
