Extending CareKit Apps

  • Christopher Baxter


In this chapter we’ll investigate further options for developers to extend the usefulness of their CareKit apps through integration with HealthKit and developing an Apple Watch app and a Today extension. You will learn how an Apple Watch app can communicate with a CareKit iPhone app and receive notifications. By extending the iPhone app, you will learn how patients can benefit from combining these technologies and therefore improve their after-care experience. The chapter concludes by wrapping up the ZombieCare example application.
