ResearchKit, Apple's software framework intended to turn smartphones and tablets into medical research tools, was on Tuesday made available to developers and researchers.

Cornell and Stanford Universities, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the Universities of Pennsylvania, Oxford and Rochester are among the first institutions to develop apps using ResearchKit.
