Needs HealthKit integration
App works well, but to be really useful it needs to be able to write results to HealthKit. Any chance you could add that feature, or open source the code so the user community could do it for you?

Developer should at least offer paid version like 99 cents to give user an ad free experience.
App well worthy of paying for but not worthy enough to give my time up for an ad as I don’t believe in giving up my free time at the expense of others.
Too many other ad free heart beat monitors to use but they are not as good as this one. Too bad as there are many like me that are sick and tired of intrusive ads.
I work in a hospital. I hooked myself up to an EKG while using the app. The heart rate shown on the app was 70, my actual heart rate shown on medically approved hospital equipment was 86.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
