    Hello,
    Is there any best health app to sync with health featured app on iOS 8 for iPhone 5?
    One of my friend has iPhone 5S and he said he got all data in health featured app on ios8 because 5S has motion recognition sensor ? It is true that iPhone 5S has got it but 5 does not?

    There was a bug in healthbook, so all apps that integrated with it have been pulled from the app store. Apparently they're working on an update to fix it in a month or so.

    If there is a bug then how does it gives data from 12th september ? He said he does not have any health app on the iphone nor does he have an ipod to sync with nike app which is bundled with ios. ImageUploadedByiCafe Forums1411058018.202249.jpg ImageUploadedByiCafe Forums1411058103.737288.jpg

    You asked for apps. Third party apps that work with Healthkit have not been released because of the bug mentioned. Apple's stock Health app is a completely different story.

    This information is gathered by the M8 motion coprocessor. I bet if you download an app that counts steps, it too would have a bit of a backlog step data.

    I think perhaps the M7 just assists the A7, offloading those responsibilities. I'm not surprised that your iPhone 5 is capturing and storing data. Try downloading this app Moves and see if it accesses that data.
