MyHeart app launched in UK

The first ResearchKit app to be made available to users outside of the US has launched in the UK.

The MyHeart Counts app is now available to UK iPhone users allowing them to monitor their own heart health whilst participating in a large-scale study designed by cardiologists at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

The study is one of the largest cardiovascular research trials ever conducted, and will look at the effect of physical activity on heart health and the risk of heart disease and strokes. It uses the iPhone to keep track of how active people are throughout the day, using the ResearchKit software.
