HealthKit integration not working for me


#1

I poked around and created an account a long time ago, but I have not used Beeminder. Today I learned that it can integrate with HealthKit, which sounds close to perfection. :slight_smile: Unfortunately, I can’t get it to work. I am using iOS 11.0.3 on an iPhone 7.

The Beeminder app does not show up as a “source” in the Health app. In the Beeminder app, I get an empty screen under Settings > Health app integration. In the iOS settings app, I don’t see anything related to HealthKit under Beeminder, just Siri & Search, Notifications and Background App Refresh.

What do I need to do to use HealthKit integration with Beeminder?

Oh, PS I tried deleting and re-installing Beeminder. No go.

Oh wait. Maybe I have to create a goal first?

Thanks so much for asking about this, @jdtangney! The app does expect you to create the goal first. (Full instructions at https://blog.beeminder.com/apple/) Eager to hear if that solves it. And thanks again for asking because it means we need to make that more obvious!
