No Heath App integration
Count and med logging options are thorough. Charts and stats are top-notch,This may be useful for folk with Type 1 diabetes or others who MUST use medication to manage. But the app suffers from not being integrated with IOS Health, and therefore not sharing information with other excellent Heath tools that are out there which a lot of people already use.
If you currently use any other diet, activity or medical tracking app or think you may want to in the future, be aware that this app cannot export glucose counts (or other data) to Health Kit and cannot import activity or nutrition info entered in other logging apps via the health kit. You need to use this app for all logging of counts, food, steps and exercise (which is not nearly as user friendly as apps with food/exercise tracking as main purpose) or you need to manually enter info into this app daily (i.e. Your total steps from Fitbit, walks/runs from Runkeeper or the Apple Watch Workout, and daily carb total from LoseIt...for example). That is a lot of fuss and not worth it for me.
I first got this app years ago before the activity tracker boom and before health kit. I'd hoped they would eventually update with the times, but they haven't. I'll be looking for a new app that plays well with others--a missing feature that is essential in any modern health tracking app.
The Best and Effective So Far
As a newly diagnosed Type 2 I was very much concerned and interested in finding just the ideal app that would let me log my data, show me results immediately and something I could share with my Doctor at each visit. I believe I've found it! This app is not only user friendly but let's me visually see my results. I especially like the graphs, the entries are easy to use and I can take a snapshot of my progress anytime. The "topper" was the website and how I can access it from any computer and I can sync it with my IPhone! One drawback that I can not award five stars is that my web entries do not sync to my IPhone but I can sync my IPhone logs to the website no problem. That is confusing and lack of info when I want to share my data with my Doctor via my IPhone. Log data on website does not match log data on IPhone. On the biggest upside to this entire package is that it is all free both the IPhone app and membership to the corresponding site! Free is good and this app is as well. I will be looking for further updates, I really love this app!!
Update: 20 Sept. 2014. I have changed my rating from a one to a four as they seem to have finally fixed the issue where the data synching would fail for weeks at a time. For about the past two weeks I have had zero problems with the app. The reason I did not give them a five is that they never answer support requests. They need to understand they are in a customer service field of business, not just an app development business.
Easy to use, yet does everything I need to manage my diabetes. My Doctor likes the printed log available on the associated web site. When I forget to print the log for him, I just handed him my phone, and he can look over the logs very quickly.
Update: the app has developed an ongoing and serious issue. The logs will no longer sync with the online data base. This makes it impossible to print out my logs.
There has been zero response to my messages to support. I have found this is a commonly complained about issue on their community forums.
Second Update: it has been several months since the last update and the inability to sync data with the server is even worse. I have now gone over two week, trying several times a day, without being able too connect with the server. I have resorted to emailing a copy of the data to myself to provide backup. There continues to be zero response from support.
While I have years of data in this data base, I have begun looking for a more reliable app.
