Reviews

Reviewer: Diabetes UK
Review: “The app is aimed at helping people with type-1 and type-2 diabetes better manage their condition, and is an example of how technology can help people with diabetes minimise the risk of complications. It is designed to be quick and simple to use, taking the daily chore out of logging levels such as blood glucose, carbohydrates and calories. The app was designed by a team that included user experience professionals, clinical specialists and people with diabetes, to help you manage your condition. Although there are a number of diabetes tracker apps available, the Diabetes UK app has some unique features to give it the edge. It is the first diabetes app that allows you to track how you are feeling, and see whether this affects your levels. Save specific records as ‘talking points’, to help you recognise patterns, and use them as reminders in healthcare appointments. This unique feature will help you get the most out of appointments by setting an agenda of your concerns.”

Review: “The main benefits of the app are being able to keep track of blood sugar results, and seeing trends in your readings. You can store medical information, and doctors’ details. 1%-5% of the patients with whom we are familiar use this app.”

Review: “I wouldn’t give it quite as many stars as four out of five. It seems to only like weight being entered in stones and pounds, which is a pain for us metric types. But, more importantly, it lacks an export, backup, restore function—I would consider that a little vital. If I do exercise, I have to add the fact as a note (but that’s OK). A body-mass indicator (BMI) calculator when entering weight would be useful, too.”

Reviewer: Diabetes UK
Review: "The app was developed in consultation with people with diabetes, in the form of focus groups and across social media channels. The app allows users to record a range of levels including blood glucose, insulin, carbohydrates, calories, weight and ketones, but also allows you to record your mood and take pictures of your food intake for reference. The app is well and truly mobile so that users can input data on the move and even share their results with healthcare professionals. The app is currently only available on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. At present, data can only be exported for a one-week period in a graph format. After taking feedback from our community of app users, we will be developing the app to include a function to download all data as a .csv file later this year."

Reviewer: Diabetes UK
Review: "The benefits of this app is its simplicity to use, which makes it very user friendly to add new data. Log and track a range of levels: blood glucose, insulin, carbohydrates, calories, weight and ketones. View your data in day and week graphs to spot trends. See your daily average blood glucose level, total carbohydrates and total calories. The first diabetes app that allows you to track how you are feeling and see whether this affects your levels. Share your entries – for example, send your graphs to your healthcare professional. Graphs and notes can be shared on Facebook and Twitter, and you can add photos of your meals, or anything that reminds you of your day, to your graph so you can work out what affects your levels. Save specific records as 'talking points' to help you recognise patterns and use them as reminders in healthcare appointments. This unique feature will help you get the most out of appointments by setting an agenda of your concerns. I think the main drawbacks are its lack of a y-axis when representing the data (this is due to having multiple variables on one graph). Additionally, you can export data via email but its not in a particularly useful form."
