Heart Rate Monitor is exactly what one would expect from a heart rate monitor app. It makes it easy check your heart rate by placing your finger on the rear camera lens or aiming the front facing camera at your face from about 15-20 cm away. I used my finger on the rear camera primarily during my tests. I found this mode to be easier to use and it seemed to provide more consistent test results. It was also less awkward then staring at my face in the gym while waiting for my pulse to be taken.

Steve Jobs Would Not Be Happy

Apple hyped its release of iOS 8 and touted its amazing new features. Unfortunately, we can’t use all of them. Steve Jobs would not be happy with Apple’s execution of its most recent product launches – other than the record breaking iPhone sales.

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Drop Test

Special thanks to PhoneBuff for testing the survivability of the new Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. I think you need a new case to protect your new iPhone. What do you think?


New iPhone? Health app?

I picked up my new iPhone 6 last night from an Apple Store. Actually, my wife was kind enough to pick up my preordered iPhone for me because she works around the corner. She braved the hoards of Apple fans and waited in a 25 minute line to receive my iPhone 6. Thanks sweetie.

The iPhone 6 has met my expectations with more screen real estate and a much thinner body than my old model (iPhone 5). The iPhone 6 is a bit slippery though and feels like I can break it like a candy bar. A very expensive candy bar. I can’t wait to test out all its new features, and to use the new Health app (which currently suffers from bugs). I’d like to say I’m surprised that Apple’s launch was plagued by bugs, but I’m not. Hopefully Apple will release an update exterminating the bugs shortly. The Health app looks so sad right now.

Apple Bars Health Data from iCloud

Apple Bars HealthKit Data from iCloud Ahead of iOS 8 Launch by International Business Times

Good news on the privacy and security front! International Business Times reports that Apple’s strict rules for developers keeps your health data off of iCloud. A good idea in light of the past iCloud hacking fiasco.

 

iPhone Users Fume Over iOS 8 Download

iPhone Users Fume Over iOS 8 Download, Say Apple’s New Operating System Eats Storage Space, Takes Too Long to Install by NYDailyNews.com

It should come as no surprise that iOS users are complaining about iOS 8 gobbling up valuable storage space and taking forever to install. The substantial amount of storage place required and wait-times to download iOS 8 (and accompanying complaints) have happened with every iOS launch. Unfortunately, this is what happens when every Apple fan and their parents are downloading Apple’s newest iOS to experience Apple’s newest features (except HealthKit – for now). I plan on installing iOS 8 later tonight, and will be picking up my iPhone 6 from the store tomorrow (hopefully).
