Pulse is the app that measure you heart rate with a simple microphone. Like a digital stethoscope. In free culture this is a Phonocardiogram*.
The heart rate values was validated with some heart rate monitoring like Polar and Zephyr Bluetooth technology. The consideration for a lot of applications that can be made with this app, include ubiquitous heath and changes for life.
*Pulse can be used with many very low cost devices developed by “Prof. Dr. Emílio Takase”. For more information about his work and others software like this can be here: http://educacacocerebral.com or http://sapiensludens.org

The bifurcated path:
Place the microphone in the palm of your hand or inside a cup and use like a stethoscope.

Since the mobile device market is very fragmented, this application only works on some devices.
