If there's a hole in my memory, it's right where the date of my last tetanus shot should be stored. Luckily, Google Health promises to help us keep track of the many medical details in our lives that would otherwise be lost. But stored information only matters if it's accessible when and where we need it. Independent developer Ford Parsons' application Health Cloud provides access to health profiles quickly and conveniently, for iPhone owners anywhere.

Health Cloud is the first released app to use the Google Data APIs Objective-C Client Library's new support for the Google Health Data API. The recent version 1.7 release of the library also offers a variety of performance and memory improvements for iPhone and Mac developers. It still provides easy access to Google Docs, Picasa Web Albums, YouTube, and many other Google services.

If you have an iPhone or an iPod Touch, you can download Health Cloud today to keep your Google Health account handy. Or if you're a Mac or iPhone developer, check out the Google Data APIs Objective-C Client Library open-source project page for an introduction to adding Google services to your products.
