    easy....it also uses the camera to address these problems. if your hot and sweaty looking it adjusts the heart rate up. if your blue it allows you to make emergency calls only. ha!

    completely agree. an EKG is in no way like a fingerprint. It is a dynamic electrical reading of your hearts electrical activity. i dont belive it is practical to use it for identity as the above user said, it changes. speaking from a medical standpoint, this is a useless and very unreliable method of identification assuming the phone produces an accurate EKG (which it probably wont). Plus the thought of being locked out of your phone in the early stages of a heart attack is scary. my 2 cents

    PS good luck to the med student/resident/doctor who wrote the post i quoted.

    pursue the dream.

    I'm a cardiac tech. If there is one thing I know, it's the heart. And this app is in no way shape or form worth 99 cents.

    Wow...forget the heart attack issue...think of the bomb applications! "If my heartbeat stops my iphone will signal your deaths!" lmao this is rediculas!

    Or how about this, your holding your phone and the phone uses it's sensors to know that it wasn't handed to another person but detects irregularities in your pulse it could automatically dial 911 for you!

    *Think outside the phone*

    you guys wondering about the phone not letting you make emergency calls in a heart attack, even locked iphones make emergency calls.
