Health App Review1 min read

Health+App+Review

Apple’s mid-September release of iOS 8 arrived with a few new built-in apps, one of them being Apple’s “game-changing” Health app.

What this app provides is a domain for Apple users to log and track their nutrition and physical activity.

The app is free to all iPhone and iPad users, which nobody is complaining about.

Apple Health alone is helpful, but there’s a catch. HealthKit apps are available for purchase that enable you to do way more with Health.

Basically, in order to use Health to its fullest, you will need to pay. Encouraging users to be more active and benefiting from it on a corporate level is a win-win for Apple.

The new emergency features are innovative as well. Users can add whatever medical information they please and it can be accessed from their lock screen in the case of an emergency.

Apple Health alone is helpful, but there’s a catch. HealthKit apps are available for purchase that enable you to do way more with Health.

What’s most difficult about this app is the display, which is confusing and overly specific. Without an in depth tutorial, the app is hard to maneuver.

This app lacks that “awe” factor Apple has been known to create, but has potential to be helpful in many ways.

I recommend this app, but only if you pair it with HealthKit apps.
