Introducing’s new apps – putting you in charge of your personal data


With the recent launch of our app store, we wanted to tell you a little bit more about the inital wave of third party apps on there.

As you’d expect with anything built on the platform, all have been created with unprecedented levels of privacy for consumers concerned about how their data is being used.

But they have also been designed to bring greater insight and benefits from the data we all create online everyday – and to put users back in control of what they share.

The below apps – and many more which will be joining them soon – will all let you see what being in control of your personal data looks like.

So, without further ado, here they are:

  • HealthyMe – Allows users to download all of their medical records into one place where they can easily be searched, viewed, and shared.
  • Finsights – Private and secure financial manager that instantly gives users a window into all of their expenses and spending.
  • Sand – Analyses a year’s worth of social media data across Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and other social sites to analyse posting habits, including by day and time.
  • Happy Not Happy – Provides insights on the emotional content and mood of a user’s social media posts over the previous two years.
  • Retina Risk – Diabetes manager that uses health and device data to help patients identify their risk for sight-threatening retinopathy, as well as track and monitor disease progression.
  • VaxAbroad – Analyses your immunisation records to see what vaccines you need before traveling to a specific country.
  • MyDuchenne – Helps individuals track and share their child’s Duchenne muscular dystrophy condition and visualise information using simple timelines and graphs.
  • SocialSafe – Allows you to import every photo you have ever posted, re-posted, commented on, or liked across every major social network.
  • – The dashboard app for discovering and connecting to data sources and managing permissions with third party apps.

All can be downloaded here.

One thought on “Introducing’s new apps – putting you in charge of your personal data

  1. I believe what you typed was very reasonable. However, consider this,
    suppose you added a little content? I am not suggesting your content isn’t good,
    but what if you added a post title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Introducing’s new apps – putting you in charge of your personal data
    – is a little vanilla. You could look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they
    write article headlines to get viewers to open the links.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to get
    readers interested about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would
    make your blog a little bit more interesting.
