Needs to filter based on criteria

All in all, I’m very happy to participate in these studies. For all the people complaining about “lack of compensation” I would say that sometime we should just do things because they help others, not because we personally get compensation for it.

Knocking off one star because it needs to filter the studies based on eligibility criteria. As a guy, I cannot possible participate in a cycle tracking studies, so it should either not be show at all or have an option to dismiss from your available studies due to ineligibility.

Are You Kidding me??

Being truly impressed with the health features of the new Apple Watch, I resolved to do my part in participating in the research app.

I immediately ran in a huge bug trying to register with the heart study. In filling out the profile, one of the fields asks for date-of-birth. Unlike most other forms that pop up direct input fields, this form required me to scroll back month-by-month starting with the current month to get the the calendar month and year of my birth (!!). Let’s see; if a person is thirty five, that’s potentially 34*12+6 = 414 calendar months they will have to scroll through to get to their birth month. If someone is 64 years old, you’re talking 63*12+6 = 762 calendar months they must scroll through - month by month! Really?!

To make matters worse, the app has no clear provision for reporting bugs.

APPLE, you’re better than this. Hopefully someone will read this review and pass this app back to QA.

I still support the goal and will keep an open eye for the next revision.

Power beats pro don’t count for some reason

I’ve been trying to work and help with a couple studies. And for some reason the Powerbeats pro earbuds don’t count as compatible your buds for the audio test. I don’t know why but they do work with Apple play and have in your volume adjustment and loudness detection like AirPods do and I know it works with Apple but for some reason it’s not working with this app.
