Ratings and Reviews
Ads make it worthless
The app has a lot of decent features. The interface is cluttered to the point it’s hard to use and hard to find things. The reporting aspect of the app is poorly done, and that’s the most important part. In the free version, the ads after a day become so obnoxious that it’s fundamentally unusable. Full screen ads with the volume forced to 100% that offends everyone in the room. If you purchase this app you are funding a company that cares about monetizing the app far more than providing a good user experience. A premium subscription is VERY expensive, and honestly provides only a few real benefits, outside of removing the ads. I will look at EVERY alternative in the App Store before I feed this marketing tactic. There is a “plus” version with a one time app purchase that likely removes some ads, but there is no clear statement of any difference so the only way to know is to buy it and find out. If you read enough review responses, you will learn if you buy that version you simply get another nagging form of encouragement to buy the expensive subscription. What this app provides is worth no where close to what the premium version provides.
This app was great
I loved this app before they changed to the subscription model a few months back. There are so many things you used to be able to do that aren’t available, even small things like using a custom label instead of before/after a meal. And now in order to share your graphs with your doctor you can only go back two weeks and you have to print it out vs email it. It’s a real shame not to be able to afford an app that used to be an asset to my medical care. I would have been able to use this app had there been a one time purchase price, but I can’t justify adding another monthly automatic charge just to log my glucose levels. I used to hype this app to everyone I knew with diabetes. Even my doctor was impressed, although I had to explain what happened when I could no longer send her my full detailed data via the health portal. Now I tell everyone about the app, explain how the developers forced a subscription model on users, and use it as an example of how patients suffer when profiting from their diseases becomes the goal. I wish I had never trusted this developer with my data. Now it’s locked away and I had to start over again with another app.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for reviewing our application. We enjoy receiving feedback such as yours in order to improve upon our app.
I'm sorry to hear about your experience. I empathize with the points you mentioned, especially that you are unable to send the logs needed to your doctor.
Can you send us an email at email@example.com so that we can help you with your problem?
Please accept my apology, and I hope that you will consider giving us another try.
This made a HUGE difference in my life!
First off, I’m a type 1 diabetic. I was diagnosed at age 2 and have had it for 28 years now.
I found out about Glucose Buddy online as one of the top 5 apps for diabetics. It’s only day 2 and already my glucoses have greatly improved. Mind you it takes time to fine tune it, and I made the additional effort of learning how to count carbs (yes, in all my years as a type 1, I’ve never really done that.) But this app is absolutely incredible. My daily readings are the best I’ve ever seen in all of my years of carrying this disease. It wouldn’t surprise me if my next A1C reading is the best it’s ever been, too. I encourage all diabetics to get this app if you want your readings to improve! Make the effort and stick with it, you won’t be sorry.
P.S. It caters ty type 2 as well.
