Samsung launches new gamified health app in Korea | mobihealthnews

Among Android phone makers, Samsung has consistently been ahead of the pack in including health apps and functionality on its phones — or at least in paying them lip service. The South Korean company announced its S Health app last year and then upped the ante in March, when it launched its Galaxy S4 phone with the promise of an optional suite of connected health devices that would interact with the app.

Now, it appears the company is poised to go further, adding a second, companion app with a gamification element. S Health Buddy, an app which features a cartoon avatar who loses weight along with the user, was recentlyadded to the Google Play store (in Korean only) and announced in Korea.
