If you have: felt fine, as you say, and have previously had a negative work-up, and there is nothing different except that you downloaded an ap (!), I would "un"download it and try to move on and not worry about your heart rhythm. If you are noticing a change in symptoms--palpitations, tachycardia, light-headedness--make an appointment to review them with your doctor. Good wishes:)
