iOS 8: Healthbook as aggregator, faster camera speed
By Phil Dzikiy | 04.07.14

Apple’s planned Healthbook app in iOS 8 is described as “an application that aggregates health and fitness data from various applications and hardware accessories” in a new 9to5Mac article. The feature, which mainly summarizes much of what’s already been reported about iOS 8, alludes to Healthbook being a sort of base app for other possible health-related applications. Additionally, the article notes Apple is working to speed up the time required to take a photo with the new iPhone’s hardware components, and pushing to further improve overall speed in iOS 8.

Call me a cynic, but isn’t this just another USA-only gimmick App, that will never be used, like Passbook, Stocks and NewsStand - something the everyone just wants to delete but can’t?

Gimmick? Maybe.  USA-only?  Not sure how Healthbook could be beneficial to just us yanks.  But I agree that a lot of these iOS bells ‘n whistles are crud that would be nice to be able to delete, rather than moving to the last available screen.
