Australian Startup 'HealthKit' Annoyed By Apple's Use of its Name

Posted by · 7248 views · Translate

Apple's use of the HealthKit name has annoyed an Australian startup, who also shares the name HealthKit.

HealthKit is an Australian startup platform that connects doctors and patients in a similar way that Apple plans to do so in iOS 8. The company tweeted that it was 'feeling annoyed' after the news broke that Apple would be using the HealthKit name. The company followed that tweet by saying "Apple likes our #HealthKit name and so do we!"

“It is very flattering that they like our name, but I’m a little let down because how hard would it have been to spend five seconds to put into their browser and find us?” Alison Hardacre, co-founder and managing director of HealthKit told WIRED. “Everybody worries that Google or Apple will come into their space and their business will die, but no one thinks that company will come into that space and use the same name!”

HealthKit bought its corresponding domain name in early 2012, which Hardacre claims is "too important" to let go. It is also speculated that Apple made last minute changes to HealthKit's name and original design after many 'HealthBook' leaks surfaced.

So far, Apple has yet to respond to the public complaints.

WTF is new in it ? Almost all Crapple products are / were copied and now this brand name. This is not a news, its something that they do regularly. So nothing to bark about it. For the iSheeps who support Crapple for this name stealing, would they accept if anyone use Crapple brand name for their products ? Stupid iShits. When apple does its divine, when others then its stolen. ROFL. Grow up !!!!!

The only thing new in it is upgrades you can't figure out especially samshit so fck off!!! Almost all samshit trolls are this desperate to believe something that already is apple material compared to wannabe bull shit especially samshit logo, this is news because it not released like you're too clueless to figure out 24/7, nothing to bitch about anyway for the samsheeps who worship samshit for this gimmicking critic crap, that's been your lonely ass strategies, you'll believe any foolish junk they throw in your chipped brain, it has been samshits last destiny but there is only one way that they can do but can't figure simple shit out, copy and whine about apple because they have nothing better to do, why else have we haven't heard from them? Delusioned screwed samshitters. When samshit goes bonkers, samsheeps break out on their period and rashes. WAKE THAT FAT ARSE UP!!!!
