Launch of iOS 8 has a hitch; HealthKit compatible apps are removed from the App Store

Launch of iOS 8 has a hitch; HealthKit compatible apps are removed from the App Store
Check your iOS powered device, because Apple has started to push out iOS 8 to eagerly awaiting iDevice users. Actually, not all Apple devices will be receiving the update. You must have the Apple iPhone 4s or newer, the Apple iPad 2 or newer or the Apple iPod touch 5th generation. While Apple continues to push out the update, things are not going perfectly well for the Cupertino gang this afternoon.

According to a tweet from developer Brian Mueller, Apple has removed all HealthKit compatible apps from the App Store. The list includes Mueller's own Carrot Fit, calorie counter MyFitnessPal, and WebMD. All three had support for the HealthKit initiative that comes with iOS 8, including the Health app.

Apple is said to be working on a fix for the problem, but it looks like all apps that integrate with the Health application will have to sit out today's launch of  iOS 8. An earlier tweet from Mueller indicated that the problems could last throughout the remainder of the week.
