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!
Would really love to see an iPad app also
Updating my review from a few months ago. This app has started to be extremely buggy on several of our family's iPhones and iPads. It won't sync, won't establish a connection to the server. This is a completely useless tool if we can't all sync the logs we make while our little diabetic is in each person's care. I have emailed the support address for help and have received nothing back from them.
This is a really excellent app for a busy family managing a young child's diabetes. Lots of flexibility for labeling, notes, and between-meal events. After using it for several months, here are things I would love to see:
I would like to be able to choose what I am seeing on the graph. Daily low, daily average and daily high are good to know. But sometimes I would like to look at just every day's breakfast number back a few weeks, or see a line for breakfast compared to lunch and dinner, or bedtime compared to a nighttime reading.
Also, our family has several adults who care for our child at various times, and everyone is using this app. Some people are on iPad and some on iPhone. I would love to see a version of this app for iPad with the sideways view and more historic data displayable on the graph screen at one time.
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 !!!
