Wish I could return 1/5
Piece of GARBAGE! Do not buy this. It worked the first time, and never worked again. I only get a message telling me to plug the thing in, and it is already plugged in. I have tried recalibration that doesn't work either. Huge SCAM. Stay away from this junk.
Does not send data 1/5
I have had the thermometer for over a year. It's not used often until someone feels sick. Every time I use it the app does nothing. No readings. It says the Bluetooth is connected but nothing
I have deleted the device from the Bluetooth, and reset the device. iPhone says Bluetooth is connect but no readings are transferring to the app.
Has never worked properly regardless of the app version. What a waste of money and lots of aggravation

Won't pair to iPhone 7 Plus.
The best thermometer I ever used it is very helpful and fast!
User twice so far 5/5
By OH badger
Set up was easy. Like audio plus text instructions. Used it twice and compared to my standard thermometer. They were the same. Used with iPhone 6.
Return your Kinsa and buy a regular ol' digital thermometer 1/5
After several attempts to calibrate I kept encountering the error message saying my thermometer could not be calibrated due to my L/R audio not being centered. I checked and re-checked that my settings were exactly what the Kinsa help menu suggested but I was still unable to calibrate. I reset the phone and the app but still nothing...which is exactly what you want to happen in the middle of the night when your kid is sick and you're just trying to get a temperature. Would have made this a 0 star review but apparently 1 is the lowest I can go.
Will not calibrate to IP7 plus 1/5
Will not calibrate to IP7 plus
F you Kinsa 1/5
3:30am my kid is sick and the thermometer won't connect to my phone. We had a better thermometer but it got medicine in the barrel and quit working.
Great tool! 5/5
A friend gave this to us ages ago and it lay forgotten in a drawer till I couldn't find our regular thermometer. It worked perfectly and set up was a breeze. The tracking feature will be super helpful at our dr appointment.
Health app syncing broken 1/5
By Little Lar
The latest update broke syncing with the health app (again). This on again/off again syncing is aggravating. Other than that the app woks ok, but since what I want is the syncing I will only give this app 1 star until they fix it.
Was 5 star before update! 1/5
Ever since the update it only shows one profile. Even when I hit the profile button at the bottom it only shows the one profile I had 4! Hopefully it gets fixed soon. I loved this app and was great for keeping track of my kids symptoms and temperatures.
Great app 5/5
Does what I need and has great support.
App is worthless 1/5
By Tired of app crashing
I love the idea of Kinsa but hate the app. At first I hate the stick thermometer and it was great until it stopped working. I could not get my phone to recognize when it was connected. Instead of purchasing another stick, I purchased the ear thermometer. Once again, it was great until it stopped connecting to the app. I've tried on two different phone but cannot get pass the "pairing you thermometer" screen. I'm tried of dealing with this. I loved it when it worked but it's way more trouble than its worth.
No family support hobbles this app 2/5
Great if you're a single parent or the only techie in the family. There is no syncing with other devices or users, so parents must create redundant entries m, once for each device, or only one parent is tasked with entering all data. Nice idea, but sharing safely is absolutely essential for any app with any aim toward family usage. When my wife and I can both enter data from our own phone and the other person see it, then I can give this app my full support.
Having issues 2/5
The thermometer/app have been working great until lately. It will read a temp (with questionable accuracy) but freezes on the screen to record symptoms and save the temp to a profile. I've closed the app, unplugged the thermometer, and started over to get a temp reading that's 2° different from the previous reading a minute earlier.
Great idea but app is awful and not well thought out. 2/5
I already hate the app after only a few minutes. The temperature tracking is great but if I want to input other symptoms or notes and make a mistake it won't let me delete history making it inaccurate and therefore not at all helpful for record keeping. Plus it's incredibly irritating knowing it's wrong and you can't change it
Great thermometer! 5/5
This thermometer has been great to use so far. The readings come out super fast and it's really intuitive to use. Having the thermometer linked to the app is a bonus because you can easily keep track of history for the whole family. The Sesame Street feature is great for my toddler! Thank you to the weeSpring parent panel for sending me this thermometer to review!
Hot Thermometer 5/5
Love this thermometer!!! It save time, temp, and the individuals symptoms. There are many excellent features to this app and thermometer, I haven't even used them all. I'm buying one for all my grown child for Christmas. It's that great!
App won't open 1/5
It shuts down immediately. Please update.
The best thermometer! 5/5
I love this thermometer. So easy to use and I love that I can keep track of my daughters temp when she is sick. Thank you for upgrading it so it now works with my iPhone 7!!
Useful for tracking sickness episodes 5/5
We use this to log every time we get sick, even if we don't have a fever. Quite useful, love it
Love love love 5/5
Best app ever for tired mom w multiple kids who are always picking up something. Makes me feel like a better parent!
Returning to the store 1/5
After three attempts to obtain a valid calibration all it does is repeatedly give the same readings which are not at all accurate. I will buy something more traditional. It is just gadgetry for gadgetries sake.
I love this app! 5/5
It makes taking temperature easy and remembering past reading even easier.
Fantastic app for the whole family 5/5
I love how many options the app has. It's nice to be able to take my children's temperature, put in symptoms and medication all at the same time so I don't have to remember. It will also remind you to give medication.
Pointless and awful 1/5
Needlessly complicated, useless waste of time and effort. I have a I Phone 6, and after repeatedly trying to set it up and being unsuccessful I checked reviews, to find that many people with the same phone as me are having problems. Waste of time and money. Ridiculous.
Love it but not for iPhone 7 3/5
Please update to make it compatible with iPhone 7 Plus!
I love the thermometer and the app is great for keeping track of temps, even for multiple family members.
Unfortunately now that I've upgraded my phone the thermometer and app are useless. Hoping for an update very soon as I'd love to continue using it!!
Worked fine now isn't syncing. 2/5
This worked fine this morning but now isn't reading/syncing only saying to plug in thermometer (stick version) when it's already plugged in. I love this thermometer just need it to work.
If it worked... 1/5
I got this when I had an iPhone 6. I really like it. I like that I can track the temperature and symptoms. However, I now have an iPhone 7 plus, which makes this obsolete as it doesn't recognize it being plugged into the lightning charger via the aux adapter. I had to dig out my old phone and wait for it to charge just to use it. Good thing I still had it. This needs to be fixed asap.
Stopped working 1/5
By Beit Ariella
My iPhone update the app automatically and the app and thermometer no longer communicate.
This app does not store data 1/5
After restoring system from a backup, nothing was left there. Unbelievable.
Not working 1/5
By Seth Mimik
This worked the first time I set it up, but the very next day the app couldn't recognize the thermometer. Deleting and reinstalling the app did not help.
Months later, I decided to give it another shot. Installed it again, and it worked just fine for a day before having the exact same problem as before.
Now that the latest iPhones don't even have headphone jacks, I doubt this app will get any further support. Oh well.
Still waiting ... 1/5
Loved it when i had an iPhone 6 but haven't used it since upgrading to the 7. Super disappointed!!
Total Fail 1/5
Couldn't even complete the app setup -- wouldn't connect to thermometer in any configuration. Seems like a nice idea though.
I received this thermometer free from work; total waste of time. I have to set it up each and every time I want to use it, even though the app just says once. I also tried to take my husbands temperature, and said it was to hot to remove and let it sit. Took his temperature with a regular thermometer, he had a low 99.5 fever. Don't know what the point of it is, if it won't take a temperature when they have a fever. Total trash!
Update messed it up 1/5
By Tried to use this
It was working well before the update-- granted I had to plug and unplug the thermometer a bunch. But now, after the update, the thermometer won't work at all. The app gets caught in a loop and asks me if I'm using my Kinsa thermometer. When I say yes, it asks me what symptom I'm entering. When I type temperature it goes back to asking me if I'm using the kinsa thermometer- then what symptom I'm entering, then if I'm using my kinsa thermometer, then what symptom I'm entering ... on and on. This shouldn't be this hard. There is room for someone else to execute this type of app properly. Kinsa has failed at that!!
Great app & wonderful thermometer 5/5
I love the kinsa thermometer. It works very well and the bubble popping game keeps my children distracted. Great app.
Thermometer disconnects everyday 1/5
By I need to tell you...
Such a good starter idea. But the fact that you have to reconnect the thermometer every time you use makes no sense.
Promo fail. Marketing suicide. 1/5
I signed up with the promise of getting a free temperature scanner through our kids' school to try. Nothing ever showed up. Waste of time. Our school was duped. Shameful.
No longer working. 1/5
By House of Calm
The app will no longer recognize my smart stick.
Not accessible. 1/5
Does not meet Apple guidelines for accessibility. Asked about that glaring fault - Kinsa replied that they had 'no plans' to make their app accessible.
Total fail - deleted app
Love this! 5/5
Thank you for updating the app for the iphone7! I love this thermometer!
Not working anymore since the update. 1/5
Not working anymore since the update. Followed all help instructions but still won't work,
Not working anymore 1/5
By LolaDeb L.
Used once today then went to use it again and nothing... the Temperature screen says, "Plug in your thermometer. The extension cord is optional for temperature taking." Never changes after plugging in thermometer or extension cord w/thermometer attached!
Won't let me take temperature 1/5
Keeps saying too warm when trying to take temperature.
Kinsa App 1/5
The current update (today) won't let my thermometer measure. It's stuck on the message the temperature is to warm on the device.
Finally can work for iphone 7. But inaccurate. 1/5
Unable to set up it.
Does not work with my iPhone 6 Plus 1/5
By Rich in Indiana
Does not work with my iPhone 6 Plus. Very disappointed.
Great concept 3/5
Great concept for a cool gadget. Ear thermometer only worked for a few months, then stopped connecting. The stick thermometer no longer works with the iPhone 7, even with the adapter.
