Ratings and Reviews
App has flaws
I had been dutifully recording my pet's breathing rate nearly every day for 2 weeks in advance of a vet appointment, and then with a single click, I managed to unintentionally clear all of the history without any warning. Now I have no record of his breathing rate for tomorrow's appointment. The app designers should make it more difficult to erase history, with warnings or confirmations or something. This is so frustrating!
Useful to measure but not to track
Good measuring breathing rate, but not to track it. It keeps all the measurements jammed into one big line graph. So if you take it daily for months, it becomes impossible to see the actual numbers or even trends over the past week or month- which would be the most useful to see if there's an issue or for upcoming Vet appointments.
You can't change the date range for the graph either. I tried emailing myself the results but it just sent a picture of the same graph. So you would need to clear it out every month to see anything decently. Wish the app would have a date range function or even an additional page where it lists the actual numbers.
You can't change the breathing rate limit. You have the option to, but there's no way to get the keyboard part of the screen to retract to press "done" and save it. If you quit the app it does not save it.
Useful tool with annoyances
I am not the first to get irritated that this useful health monitor does not make it clear how to update the alerts. My dog had one high breathing rate, and ever since, I get a daily admonition to contact my vet about a (null) high breathing rate. I have e-mailed the data to my vet, which did not cancel the daily alert, and I don’t want to erase the data history, so we can look at it over the long term. Hopefully, Cardalis developers will reply (I also e-mailed the company), but as this is a minuscule part of the parents company’s work, I don’t think they care. The app isn’t even mentioned on their website, though the medication with the same name is.
