Android app review: Instant Heart Rate

An apparently useful application for Android is Instant Heart Rate, which can be installed from the Android Market.

What it does is measure your heart rate using the built-in camera of the phone.

On my Motorola Milestone, there was a serious flaw though. Once you use the Instant Heart Rate app, the camera's brightness will be totally off: all your pictures will be severely overexposed (all white).

A reboot of the phone solves this problem. Inconvenient when you have something running in the background such as a GPS tracking application or instant messenger sessions.

For now, I uninstalled this application.





I tried that heart app also and it did just the opposite on my phone. I know my heartrate but now all of the pictures I take are dark and fuzzy. Sucks to. It was a new phone
