The First of The HealthKit-Connected Apps Shows Up In The App Store

The FUBAR’ed public launch of iOS 8.0.1 was supposed to enable the release of HealthKit connected¬†apps in Apple’s App Store. Now that Apple has finally gotten it right with iOS 8.0.2, we’re seeing the first of the HealthKit-enabled apps beginning to show up.


9to5Mac¬†first spotted the entry of HealthKit enabled apps into the store, as they saw FitPort, a fitness dashboard app allowing users to save and view health stats from Apple’s Health app database, appear.

With the appearance of FitPort, we should see a flood of HealthKit-connected apps begin to appear in the App Store over the coming days.

Just before the release of iOS 8, Apple discovered a HealthKit bug which meant HealthKit-capable apps could not launch alongside the new mobile operating system. Apple then released iOS 8.0.1 earlier this week, which fixed the HealthKit issues, but had the unfortunate side-effect of disabling the cellular connection and Touch ID sensor on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets.

Apple appears to have finally gotten it right with the release of iOS 8.0.2 Thursday evening, which fixes both the HealthKit related issues and restores cellular and Touch ID capabilities to Apple’s latest handsets.

MacTrast will keep you posted as more Healthkit-connected apps begin appearing in the App Store.

FitPort is available for the iPhone – $1.99 in the iOS App Store [DIRECT LINK]
