Hipbone: now backing up all your Health data

When we first released Hipbone we envisioned a way for iPhone users to back-up their iOS Health app data. Hipbone users would have their health data backed up to a trusted source (i.e. Dropbox) in an open format, using Open mHealth schemas. From there they could do whatever they wanted with that data; the possibilities were endless!

We only achieved this goal for a handful of data types stored in the Health app.

We’ve been hard at work and proud to announce a new version of Hipbone, that’ll give you the ability to pull any health data out of the iOS Health app, translate it into an open format, and then back it up to Dropbox. The choice of which types of data you back-up is still up to you.


When you first start the new version of Hipbone, you’ll be prompted to review the types of data you’d like to back-up, including the new types.


Besides adding support for all of the different types of data, we’ve fixed a few bugs to improve Hipbone’s performance.

You can download the new version of Hipbone on the App Store.

Let us know what you think of the new version @openmhealth or tech@openmhealth.org!
