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.
My 12 year old daughter was just diagnosed last week with T1D. As a pediatric nurse who has taught many parents of new diabetics, I immediately became the deer in the head lights.
Our family wanted to keep things as normal as possible for our daughter and as easy as it could be. We immediately looked for an iPhone app to help us all be in the loop at the same time and help her to be as in control as well. We started using this app 2 days after discharge from the hospital and has been fabulous. Our daughter logs sugars, time, insulins, carbs, and can place notes if needed. She hits sync and I can immediately sync to my phone at work to see what has been happening. We have used it when school calls with a question since we can see all the logs and frequently have emailed it to our Nurse Practitioner to review and make changes in insulin/carb ratio, bedtime insulin and insulin sensitivity ratio between appointments. So far, so good. Will start exploring more into other options we have not yet accessed from this app. Thank you so much for helping a mother feel some type of control yet allow our daughter to be empowered!
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!
