My husband is the only member of my family that does not have an iPhone, and he gets tired of all the iPhone hype, but even he was impressed by this new app:
I read about it in the February issue of O[prah] magazine, and downloaded it on the spot. It uses the iPhone camera to detect the pulse in your fingertip–you just hold your index finger over the lens for 10 seconds to get an instant read. You can store your data, check your pulse against different targets, and even share your data on Facebook and Twitter. All for only 99 cents!
I don’t know how accurate it is, but it measured by resting pulse at 61 bpm, which sounds about right.
I always say that watching my son wrestle makes my heart race, and I remembered to check my pulse at his first match of last week’s tournament–it was 131 bpm! And that was after I fumbled with my phone–it probably was even higher before that distraction.
Have you discovered any fun new apps lately?
