Big news that followed were record 4 million plus pre-orders placed in first 24 hours, release of Android One, etc. Another interesting news that moved mobile freaks is bug in Apple HealthKit.

This is not the first time when Apple didn’t match up to the mark with their new software product, Apple Maps faced lot of criticism by user. The Cupertino based company have learned from their mistake and before user could make any complain about HealthKit they themselves spoke out about bug in their new health platform.

A spokesperson from Apple said, “We’re working quickly to have the bug fixed in a software update and have HealthKit apps available by the end of the month”.

Announcing about the bug in HealthKit app from Apple spokesperson is a pretty smart move. Its will save them from critics to give negative reviews about the platform. The apps have been made unavailable for user to download from the store, they haven’t specified the time when it will be made available to users.

Brian Mueller said, “Sounds like HealthKit won't be working at all this week, and there's no ETA for when a bug fix will go live”.

Apps for mobile platforms can be tricky sometimes, and health tracking apps are most sensitive ones. A small miscalculation will yield wrong results and one cannot take chance with health of user. There are huge number of healthcare apps over the store, but only some of them from third party mobile application development companies are popular among users, reason for their popularity is accuracy in tracking features they offer.

Apple has made a nice move speaking out about the bug and removing HealthKit apps from reach of users. The developers are working with Mount Sinai Hospital, the Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins University and electronics health records provider AllScripts to make their HealthKit platform perfect before releasing it to end-users.
