What's New in Version 5.5.0
Updated to allow exporting data to Diabetes Pilot Pro
I have been a type I diabetic since 1964. I'm now age 80 years and have been using an insulin pump since 1989. This program has been indispensable going back as far as one of the early palm smart phones. It not only provides good record-keeping, the algorithms are extremely helpful in determining insulin doses both for food and for high blood sugar. I have never learned to use the food database very well, and I use another food database to look up foods. Also my wife has an encyclopedic knowledge of various foods and their carb contents.
My one suggestion is that you make it possible to use different insulin/carb ratios at different times of day, as at different mealtimes.
I am certain many more diabetics join me in offering heartfelt thanks for this program. I also appreciate the variety of reports which can be constructed with this program.
Love the app, but.....
You guys really need to do some cleanup on your foods database. Foods that say "1 serving" are not helpful. Or those that list only grams. There are two serving types that are most useful - ounces for most things, and cups for liquids. You sometimes have dozens of entries for the same food, and if I peck around long enough, sometimes I can find one with a portion size I can work with. Sometimes not. One suggestion would be for you to combine foods that are the same, and let me pick the appropriate serving amount after selecting it. Another would be to show the serving portion on the first screen so the user can see it before making their selection. I'll increase my star rating if you improve this. As is, I have to give low marks.
Oh - another thing. Make for a seamless migration to the more advanced app.
Very Good App - Some Suggestions
I have tried several other diabetic apps but Diabetes Pilot has been the easiest one to use. While it's database of foods is not the best one I've seen, it does have a fair range of foods listed. I am surprised that market chains like Arby's and Boston Market get fair representation but others like Dunkin Donuts and McDonalds are not represented. Also, products from Snapple, Starbucks, Lean Cuisine, etc. would be welcome. I have other apps that do include these sources.
Syncing my iPhone or iPad to the Mac desktop program (via WiFi) is a neat feature. I hope that in the near future, the iPhone/iPad apps will also allow one to select from a saved meal that has been stored on the Mac Desktop.
Reports are nice (on both the computer and iPhone/iPad). I would suggest that a setting to graph only actual glucose readings daily (not averages) could be produced without other elements being measured. Also, adding in test results, such as A1C would also be nice.
All in all, I recommend this app! Looking forward to future updates!
