CareKit

by Rob Poulter


So at Apple's (final) Town Hall event they announced CareKit, which looks pretty interesting, although details are kinda scarce beyond their press kit so far, with release being "Spring 2016" so I guess sometime before WWDC.

After making Repeat thinking about meds, it's kind of funny to see Apple bring out a framework aimed at that sort of thing. Particularly since I was having a shower thought the other day about making an app around tracking wound recovery, logging spots-that-might-not-be-spots and so on. Glad that it was only a recent thought and only half-considered, seeing as that seems to be one of the card functions which is going to be released as part of CareKit.

I'm pretty happy that my next app idea is aimed more at education than health, since Apple seems to be moving in that direction more lately.
