You can use Glooko at no cost if you are sponsored by your doctor, insurance plan or employer.

The app also shows you what time of the day you go high or low, which days of the week are your best days, and how your blood glucose levels compare to previous time periods. The Glooko app is compatible with most BG meters, insulin pumps, and CGMs available in the market. See www.glooko.com/compatibility/ for a complete list of compatible devices.

Ratings and Reviews
Has become unusable
Too many bugs to list. Feedback to Glooko has not resulted in big fixes. Latest release makes the history screen unusable. Uses icons with dosages but no med names. Comments no longer readable. They threw away a usable list that showed med, time,!dosage, comments and food notes in favor of a screen that shows a blank calendar. User has to scroll a whole page, then click on every icon to see the data.
None of the bar chart y-axes work. All are cut off at an arbitrary level that is lower than the exercise, insulin or carbs for most diabetics. Looks like your numbers are lower than they are. Have it use a scroll bar on the line graph to then read the number for the associated bar.
I’ve reported other issues as well, including problems with the data being transferred for cross app integration and roll up. Fitbit, for example.
After the most recent change, this app is no longer worth the annual (paid up front) subscription cost. Sad bc Glooko finally fixed most of the glucose meter sync issues. Still goes down a rat hole for several minutes if auto sync kicks in, but far more reliable and quick now than previously. But if I can’t use the data, what good is the Bluetooth upload?
I no longer recommend this app.

Hey there - thank you for all of the detailed information you have provided in regard to the issues you are experiencing. We are definitely working to improve and fix any issues within the Glooko app to make it the best experience possible. We hope that in the future that the Glooko app will meet your needs and exceed your expectations!
Love the app, please add more exercise apps to pair with this
Love the app- makes it so easy to see trends and adjust basal and bolus rates accordingly. I really need it to work with more exercise apps and import data from them, though. I love the Nike Run Club app and Map My Run, and would love if my data from them could be part of this. Exercise affects my blood glucose level more than anything else I’ve found, and this would help me manage my diabetes even better to see the timing and intensity of my workouts along side the info from my CGM and insulin pump. Please considering adding these!

Thanks for the positive feedback, Katelyn! We're SO glad you're loving the app! We love getting product suggestions from our users, and we're passing this along to our Product Team as an enhancement request! 🙌
Still no integration with Apple Health
It’s been 3 years now that Apple Health has been on iPhones. So it’s apparent that Glooko has consciously made a decision not to integrate with it. I have no idea why. This would be different if the app was free. This app presents no real value over other apps. There are free apps out there that can integrate with more devices and apps and have better user interfaces. I’ve yet to find the value in this app due to its price. It should be free. I have no idea why people think it’s worth paying for.

Hey there - while there is definitely no one size fits all app for diabetes management, we do our best to enhance features, add capability and increase ease of use so that our app can work for as many people as possible! We plan on integrating with Apple Health and would love to keep you updated. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
