What's New in Version 3.7.0
- you can now sync 2-ways!
- bug fixes
2-way Sync is the Killer Feature
The sync feature alone is enough to warrant a five-star review. My wife and I can both update & check our daughter's readings. The app even alerts you if an update has been made. Readings are also available online in a secure interface. The interface is clean and simple to use, albeit with too much social junk. The graph is a nice touch but the Y axis needs to record over 450.
The app is not perfect, however. The food log is crude and as such is almost completely useless. There is no pre-populated food database and food items manually added to the database don't record serving size or carbs. So you have to figure out the carb count and serving size each and every time you log a food entry. I use Calorie Counter for food logging, which is an excellent app.
Second, medicinal logging needs to support dosages with up to two decimal places of precision. For example, 1.25 units. However, this seems to be an issue with all diabetes apps.
Nevertheless, this is the best app for the iPhone for insulin and blood glucose logging. I've tried them all. Please make an iPad version!
App Yes / Website No
Working off my iPhone the App in general is just ok. Do note that if you don't use the email option to send your charts to your physician, that the website printout for Blood Presure only reads one of the three readings (Systole / Diastole / Heart Rate) per print out. Yup that's right! So either you choose which of the three you believe your physician would like or change the drop down under Blood Presure to the next item and print the whole chart one more time and so on for the third reading. Glucose Buddy get rid of the drop down on your website in charts, my Doctor would love to see all my answers on one set of charts not three. Another reason why I rated this App only "It's OK" is; if you're like me and rather use the website to type in most of your readings while it's booted up in the same facility as one's iPhone, be ready to watch, even with one of the fastest computers on the market, the little Windows loading symbol go around and around and around and around for ever. Glucose Buddy's website is extreemly slow and consistantly locks up while loading medicines on one's PC due to the fact of man size fingers up against an iPhone. Hope this was helpful to you all, be-blest !!!
Okay...Needs a Few Improvements
This program is fairly nice. I do wish that there were a few cosmetic improvements however. First of all, a clear delineation between each day is really needed. Furthermore a way to easily identify each month would be very useful. I do upwards of 12 blood tests per day, so being able to quickly identify the day, month, and time of each test is really important to me. The extremely small text that gives this info in the programs current is difficult to read. How about color coding each month, adding Bold text for the time, and inserting a dividing line between each days results?
Adding the ability to input a desired range in which you would like to have your results fall into would be useful. Then having a pie chart that displays the percentage of your tests that are within range, above range, and below range could provide valuable feedback for the user. Everything else is quite well done. A solid app for logging blood test results!
