One of the more noteworthy announcements anticipated from next week's WWDC will be that of the Healthbook suite. With a UI based heavily on Passbook, it's set to serve as Apple's ticket into the lucrative health and fitness market, and to give us a better idea of how it may all pan out, one concept maker has come up with a rather beautiful video design and an interactive iOS 8 Healthbook mockup.
It has recently become apparent that Apple plans to make a concerted push into the health and fitness market this year, with reports suggesting that the Cupertino company will introduce a "Healthbook" suite with iOS 8. This feature is set to tie in closely with the company's inaugural smartwatch effort that we've also heard a great deal about, and as per a report from Reuters, the fruit company may be planning to build a dedicated, third-party-supported, App Store-like hub for fitness-related services.
Since the past few days, we've been hearing about Apple's supposed iOS 8 Healthbook app endeavors, and today, a new screenshot released into the wild via China's Twitter-like service Weibo offers what appears to be a legitimate glimpse of the app running on iOS 8.
As well as offering some big improvements upon existing features, iOS 8 is expected to deliver some significant new implementations of its own, and with fitness and tracking-related devices and applications currently in vogue, it is thought that Apple will hop aboard the bandwagon with a new, native app called Healthbook. As the name implies, the app will be to fitness and wellbeing what Passbook is to vouchers and tickets, presenting the health-conscious with an all-in-one hub for tracking key aspects such as exercise, diet and activity. 9to5Mac first shed light on Healthbook a while back, and is now back with some more in-depth tidbits regarding the forthcoming app.
