Apple introduced a few health-related features in the new iOS 8, and even released the HealthKit tool to help the developers integrate it within their apps to make use of it.
When iOS 8 was released, there was a bug which prevented HealthKit, but with the latest iOS 8.0.2, the bug has been fixed, and we get to see more apps hit the App store with the feature.
Several health and fitness-related apps have been updated lately with HealthKit integration, such as Fitport, MyFitnessPall, WebMD, and a few others. These apps now allow users to share their health and fitness data with Apple’s new Health app introduced in the latest iOS 8, and makes use of it.
The bug was expected to be fixed in the iOS 8.0.1 update, but it came with it’s own set of problems, such as the loss of cellular connectivity and malfunctioning of the Touch ID on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Apple did pull the update within sometime, and mentioned it’s going to release a the new iOS 8.0.2 update which will fix the bugs, and introduce HealthKit integration.
We should see more health apps making use of the new feature, with more apps hitting the App Store in the coming days.
