Summary

Carbohydrate counter with a food database. Aims to allow blood-glucose levels to be tracked. The user measures and enters ingredient data, or selects from predefined serving sizes. The app generates a total for carbohydrates, fat, protein and kcal. It can calculate the amount of insulin needed, based on variable carbohydrate-insulin ratios. Also tracks insulin (and other medications), and sport, and other activities. The log is searchable, and meals can be recalled. The food composition database can be added to, and adjusted. Apple version apparently in development.

Reviews

Reviewer: The app developer, blogging on TuDiabetes, a social network of the Diabetes Hands Foundation (DHF)
Review: “The US food database is a bit too huge for my app. For this English-language app, I used an English version of the Norwegian food database. This fits on most devices. It would also be nice to have a database with foods in different proportions (for instance, an apple ‘per 100 gram’, or ‘per piece’). I know all that information is available in the US database, and I used that to make a more elaborated Dutch version.”

Review: “I am Dutch (type 2 since 2004, with underactive thyroid, and hearing impaired), and I have the app on my phone (like its previous version). It is very handy, and works like a charm.”

Reviewer: Blogger; app developer. Both on Diabetesforum.be
Review: “When starting, the app crashes regularly. After trying several times, it finally starts up. Otherwise, a very handy app. Will come in handy as a ‘beginner’.” [Reply blog from the developer: “Yes, there are still crashes; we get details from Google. We will definitely try to improve. We see particular use of the app in the Netherlands (30%), in the US (30%), and only 15% in Belgium. It has always been striking that the Dutch use this app more.”]
