When you first install the app, it will ask permission to turn on your Bluetooth. This is what will allow you to pair the app with your glucose monitor. After that, you can proceed to sign up where you will be asked permission to give the app access to media on your phone, which is the part I don't fully understand yet. Anyway, the sign-up process is really easy as you will just be asked to fill in some basic information about yourself. This APP serves as a great resource if you want to have the right information about diabetes including teaching you how to make sense of glucose data, advice about exercising, meal plans, etc.

Pros

I like that the app gives you a quick tutorial to familiarize you with navigation of its features and functions. It tracks your progress and helps you keep logs of all the information related to your condition. It is a great resource for diabetes related information.

Aside from the numerous features that are beneficial to your health and super helpful to any person with diabetes, the app has a very friendly user interface which is very comfortable to use. I think that this is the best app for keeping track of everything; it has such an extensive log. You can track everything that is relevant to your diabetes including blood glucose, medication, exercise and weight, blood pressure, etc. This is truly one of the most extensive logs I have ever seen on any diabetes app,

Pros

It has a very easy to follow tutorial to teach you how to use the app. The sign-up process was pretty straightforward and it even gives you options to sign in with your social media handle instead. It gives you the option to synch with googlefit so that you can track the number of steps you take daily. It has such an extensive log.

Cons

There are even more helpful features locked away until you upgrade but I guess the developer has to make money somehow.

I found this to be a good app with a good plan and execution. The APP has an easy sign-up process, which is always a defining factor for me. Any app that gives me the option to sign in with a social media handle is a winner. The application lets you choose the level of intensity of your use; from easy to intense. I started from easy.

Pros

You can log blood pressure and glucose levels. You can set up a weight loss plan, log your meals and track your workout time. The device is able to pick up your location and track your workout time as well as the distance you have walked. It tells you the amount of calories you burned in that session. You are provided a graph that clearly shows your progress from your current weight to your desired weight goal. The layout is very comfortable and engaging and the audio function is really good.

Cons

No complaints.

This is handsdown the best guide to diabetes ever, whether you have it or it is a friend or family member of someone who has it or even a health professional. I was honestly so surprised to learn that the app is completely free. Usually, when it comes to apps with this level of usefulness, users are charged a fee.

Pros

Easy to navigate interface with some really cool features including bookmarks and notes. The most up to date information from the most trusted sources made available in the least challenging way possible. I really liked that it doesn't just talk about treatment and management but also really explores preventive methods and guidelines.

Cons

None at all.

Upon installation, the app opened to a dull green backdrop that I found very calming. I know that is not the point of its creation but it just instantly made me feel a lot less stressed and I just had to point it out. The developers also did a great job with how everything was placed on the app and the features were easy to identify and interact with.

Pros

It provides a logbook so you can track your blood sugar and it then helps you calculate your estimated HbA1c. It allows you to create a report of your logs that you can export but you will have to upgrade for that function to work. It also has a 'challenges' function that tasks you with certain activities to promote your health as well as cheer you up because having diabetes doesn't mean you can't have fun. It lets you connect and sync with googlefit

Cons

None.

This app is really amazing. My dad has been living with diabetes for a couple of years now . Taking his medication has really been hard bacause at tmes I forget but this app has been a life saver. The iHealth has always reminded me when I forgot to give my dad the medication. It has helped me read about data through cloud sharing and when my phone is not available I can easily log and see how my dad is progressing. I definitely recommend this app.
