New iPhone? Health app?

I picked up my new iPhone 6 last night from an Apple Store. Actually, my wife was kind enough to pick up my preordered iPhone for me because she works around the corner. She braved the hoards of Apple fans and waited in a 25 minute line to receive my iPhone 6. Thanks sweetie.

The iPhone 6 has met my expectations with more screen real estate and a much thinner body than my old model (iPhone 5). The iPhone 6 is a bit slippery though and feels like I can break it like a candy bar. A very expensive candy bar. I can’t wait to test out all its new features, and to use the new Health app (which currently suffers from bugs). I’d like to say I’m surprised that Apple’s launch was plagued by bugs, but I’m not. Hopefully Apple will release an update exterminating the bugs shortly. The Health app looks so sad right now.
