Microsoft HealthVault ends its Windows Phone support

Microsoft has sent out emails to Windows Phone members who use the HealthVault app, informing them that the company will be ending support for the app "due to compatibility problems".

Windows Central readers sent over the email that Microsoft pushed out informing them of this decision:

Thank you for using HealthVault.We're reaching out because you are a user of the Microsoft HealthVault app for Windows Phone. Recently, we have seen some issues with the app due to compatibility problems. We want to continue to provide a reliable HealthVault experience for Windows Phone, which we believe will be best delivered through the HealthVault website. We will therefore be ending our support for the app and removing it from the Windows Phone Store.Rest assured that this change has no impact on the information you store on HealthVault, which we encourage you to access using the HealthVault website ( The site provides similar functionality to the app and is accessible by using the browser on your mobile device or PC.
