Apple – ResearchKit – Should be made for Android

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

Hundreds of millions of people around the world have an iPhone in their pocket. Each one is equipped with powerful processors and advanced sensors that can track movement, take measurements, and record information — functions that are perfect for medical studies. The sheer number of them being used across the globe opens up new possibilities for researchers. With ResearchKit, researchers can easily create apps that take advantage of iPhone features to gather new types of data on a scale never available before.

Is what Apple is saying, but then they mention China as having half the worlds parkinsons disease patients and highest number of “mobile phones” users.  It makes me think that if ResearchKit is really going to service, they’re going to have to take Steve Wozniak’s advice and starting making Android phones.
