What's New in Version 1.3
Updated blog integration
Glorified User's Guide
I saw this app mentioned in an email I received from Minimed so I thought I'd give it a try. What a disappointment!! All it is is a collection of the pump's User Guide, the glucose sensor's User Guide, instructional videos from the Medtronic web site and some additional travel tips bundled together. I thought it would possibly have some type of feature to sync my pump and/or glucose sensor, but it doesn't. Any information from my pump or sensor has to be manually entered into the app. And even that information is limited in the app...for example, my pump is programmed with 7 basal rates and 6 bolus ratios. This app has a maximum of 6 basal rates and 4 bolus ratios. So I can't even completely enter in my information. This app is useless for me!
Sluggish as all get out
I think app has nice features...if you can get to them. Better have all your account information handy and committed to memory or kept in a safe place for future reference, because setting up/resetting accounts is no fun on this. And I'm not much of a fan of the company either. Placing an order? I have WiFi + 3G, but I just sit and spin, spin, spin, spin the black circle.
By default the app always capitalizes the first character of the user id. Since some user ID's don't have the first character as a capital letter, it would be better if the default was to not capitalize the first character.
