Summary

Complementary logbook app that, when combined with the developer’s proprietary ‘Sync cable’, and various manufacturers’ compatible blood-glucose meters, saves the user with diabetes from having to manually enter blood-glucose readings. After a user has connected their glucose meter via the ‘Sync cable’, the app will automatically sync data to its logbook. The logbook can accept readings from multiple meters, and combine data into one tracking format. Contextual tags can be assigned to readings, and the user can draw on the app’s integrated food database to add nutritional information (including carbohydrate values) about consumed foods directly to readings. Multiple-view options allow trends to be tracked over timeframes. Data can be exported in CSV file for in-depth analysis, and a two-week or one-month PDF summary of the logbook can be emailed to healthcare professionals.

Review: “Just started using the app. The ‘Sync cable’ is easy to install. Just plug into the phone and the meter, and, in the app. choose your meter, and it downloads your reading.”

Review: “ ‘Glooko’ is a cable that can connect meters, from a variety of manufacturers, to a phone. The app does the translation of the data from the data formats of the meter manufacturers, and fills in its log book. It is a shift in the centre of the diabetes data management universe. I think that data in your smartphone (instead of your computer) is a move closer to where folks with diabetes live their lives.”

Review: “Any diabetic with a smartphone has suffered. You look at your glucometer. You look at your phone. And you think to yourself: “I can use this phone as everything from a news aggregator to an email-getter, to a virtual goldfish bowl. So, why can’t these two devices connect?” Well, here’s some good news. Thanks to a new product called ‘Glooko’, they now can. When I got my ‘Glooko’, I was impressed by how easy it was to use. You download the app, you plug the cable into your meter and phone, and, within a few minutes, all your data has been downloaded onto your phone. I was able to scroll through my blood-glucose readings, either on a continuous list, or on a chart that broke them down by day. After only a few minutes of poking around, I had figured out how I could make notes on my blood-glucose readings, and also see why I run through test strips so fast. In terms of intuitiveness, speed, and simplicity, I was very impressed. However, there were some obvious features that were missing. Why couldn’t I look at my blood-glucose readings on a graph, for example? Why couldn’t I calculate my average blood glucose during certain times of day? Why wasn’t there any other way to analyse my data?”
