I’ve seen a few discussions about iOS HealthKit recently, and most seem to miss the point of the app. There seems to be a notion that HealthKit is trying to compete with apps that do data visualization, that it somehow wants to take over managing all the wearable sensors, or even push Apple’s wearable fitness tech. While I don’t know what Apple’s intentions, all these assumptions don’t seem right and miss a major reason for HalthKit’s existence – to be an information broker.
After Apple announced they will stop developing Aperture, Adobe was nice enough to offer a Lightroom plugin to migrate Aperture libraries to Lightroom. I previously wrote some custom scripts around the Aperture library, and can appreciate how much pain they must have gone through to deciper the library Aperture (hopefully they had some help from Apple). The Aperture libraries aren't always consistent and can vary depending on how old they are, or how many times they crashed, so there were bound to be some bugs in the Aperture Importer plugins.
