Apple already supports applications compatible with HealthKit in the App Store
One of the features that mainly solved the launch of the new version of the mobile operating system for iPhone and iPad, iOS 8.0.2, has been one that was related to the possibility that HealthKit apps were available in the application store of Apple. Now, once this is fixed, The first iPhone applications compatible with HealthKit begin to arrive.
Problems with iOS 8.0.1 delayed the arrival of apps compatible with HealthKit
The App Store team, after solving errors in the iOS 8.0.1 version, has finally begun to allow and approve the first applications compatible with HealthKit in the app store for iOS devices. The first of these applications is Fitport, which represents an alternative that will allow you to consult on the same site all the information related to the user's health status, in addition to synchronizing said information, constantly, with the Health database, something that could not have been possible so far.
Obviously, thanks to these applications users can control different types of data and contrast them through the Health or Health application, which was included by Apple in iOS 8, although until the arrival of the latest version of iOS they could not have been available.
When opening the Health application, we should now have the permissions requested from users, which will have to be accepted individually, each of these elements, to allow access to the statistics that will be shared with third-party applications. In principle it will be necessary to activate the ability to read and write the data.
It is important to keep in mind that the devices updated to iOS 8.0.2 are the ones that will currently have access to these applications compatible with HealthKit, which are beginning to appear in the App Store. Then we leave you with FitPort, one of the applications currently available and compatible with HealthKit.
