One of the featured apps, PRIDE Study, is also the latest ResearchKit-enabled app to hit iTunes. The app, created by researchers at the University of San Francisco, will enable "the first longitudinal health study of LGBTQ people today," according to USF.

The goal is to help scientists understand health issues unique to LGBT people in order to help improve their overall health. Initially, the app will enable participants to vote on health topics they want researchers to investigate, like whether LGBT people may be at more at risk for certain types of cancers, for example. Participants will then complete annual questionnaires about their health, which will inform the scientists' research.
