This application requires that you feel your pulse and press the screen with the stylus when you feel a beat. It does not use the screen to feel your pulse itself.

So much for measuring your heartbeat. They're measuring screen taps!

You can measure your heart beat without a Zaurus. Just count your pulse beat in 15 seconds and times it by 4.

I can make this for you in JavaScript if you really want it.
