Too little information from too many touches for data entry. All I want (need) to see is a simple line chart of my daily average mg/dL. Colored buttons are cute but don’t indicate a trend. I want to know if I’m improving or getting worse over the last 7, 30 or 90 days. Apple Health does better. I granted permission to read and write to Apple Health but data is not shared.
I was unable to even sign up for the site. The message stated that my passwords didn’t agree. I redid them and double checked. However, I got the same message. Then, I tried to change the password. But, I wasn’t allowed to do even that. Nothing I tried, including starting all over, worked. There is no star for 0.So, I had to give them a1 just to send my message!
You don’t have more than 2 choices in your Application and I use TRUEbalance, Oh’Care Lite, ReliOn Prime & ReliOn Premier Compact. It’s impossible for me to pair my glucometers with your Application. Can you add the 4 mentioned above to your Application and send me an email when you upgrade the same?
I was just diagnosed with Type II a few weeks ago, & I knew the best way to track my sugars (the way I would consistently do it, anyway) was with my iPhone. I tried several free apps & overall have been happiest with this one. I especially like the Google Health interface. My only request would be an option to manually input readings via some keypad/scroll wheel method like the other apps (perhaps this could be a user enables option?). I sometimes have trouble getting the slider exactly where I want it, & I just think a more straightforward input method might be convenient for some people. I had no problems setting up custom labels for all the different times of the day I check my levels. The Twitter feed is a nice addition to read what others are doing. Thank you to the developers for creating this free useful app.
I don't know what everyone else here is complaining about... 1. You can customize as many categories as you want, such as Pre-Lunch, Post-Lunch, Other, Fasting. You can set as many of these as you want. 2. it is very easy to place the dot. What you do is slide around until you find your number, then pause there for a few seconds and it will lock it in. You DO NOT have to let go at just the right spot. If it is wrong (which seems rare for me) you can just touch it and move it again. My only complaints are that (1) the X and Y axes of the graph are flipped compared to most blood sugar graphs. From left to right you have the reading, and up and down is time of day. If there was an option to change that so that it could be shown either way this would be a 5 star app! (2) Daily/Weekly/monthly overlay (by time) graphs would be nice too. Lastly, (3) I'd like not only a % in range but a % above and % below. Just more information. FANTASTIC app overall. Great job! Keep up the great work!
Review update, Dec 6, 2016: This new version looks great and it now works flawlessly with IOS10. It now syncs with the Apple Health app, instead of the Microsoft Health Vault; you can choose different times of testing, pre or post meal time. Great update. As soon as I upgraded my iPhone 5S to IOS10, the syncing function with MS Health stopped working and gives an error message instead. This app needs updating. Review update: June 26, 2017: I am getting duplicate entries for every log. Why? The only difference is the occasion (post dinner v. post snack). This seems to be a bug.
Let me start with this statement. This app has potential. I absolutely love the fact the blood sugars are sent to my google health profile. My endo can see my blood sugars in near real-time! Now let's get down to brass tax. The interface can be infuriating. I want to be able to graphically see where my blood sugars are, but not have to place them graphically. An option to add blood sugars with using the telephone layout keypad would provide a fast entry solution. I would like to be able to send my insulin intake to google health. please add support for this. additionally, i would like to be able to log my carb intake. Granted, i know, there are many other apps out there that do things similar to what i am describing. I have used them and have only found one that does most of these. This app would be the best because of the google health integration!
This is the only diabetes app (or any medical app for that matter), that stores your data to a real PHR - Google Health. Great work! Where's HealthVault though? Like the new ability to set your own context to anything you want. Love the twitter integration - all my diabetes friends are there! I'm not sure what Daiysed is taking about below - unless he's using an old version.
Really like the basic functions of this app, does the data collection and tracking suffice for me. Quick and Easy. However the main feature that attracted me in the first place, the ability to tweet, For me, it's iffy at best. Some times it will tweet, most times it won't, and I have to copy/paste over to the Twitter app which had no problem. Not perfect but, for free, it's OK.
As a type 2 diabetic, I've already tried and discarded many diabetic log apps. This one is the worst of all. The interface is difficult to use and even worse to figure out. You cannot limit testing to just breakfast, lunch, dinner and bedtime. Entering readings is nearly impossible along with the time of day. No documentation means it is impossible to synchronize with Google Health. It may be free but that only means it aint worth nothing...
This looked like it was going to be a pretty good app I liked the graphics ....but I Keep a different schedule only imput is from 9.am. to 9 p.m. and you cant add Random or Fasting samples just B/L/D not ever gonna work for me very hard to get the time and Glucose levels input in the correct area Instructions would be helpful too!
Nice that it's free, but very difficult to accurately drop the data marker in the right place. Also, you can only input data for meal times and I check at other times of the day, also. Nice that you can send data to Google Health account, thought. A couple of interface tweaks would vastly improve this app.
Tracking BG without any ref (except time) isn't terribly useful, add spots for short/insulin, and meds would be very nice. Also, food intake would be great. I realize that there other apps that do this, but none (that I've found) which link to Google.
I kind of like the app but there is no help menu and if you want to send feedback there is no send button so you can’t send it. Also all of my reading are duplicating themselves so using the app is pointless. The numbers are not accurate if they are duplicated. I’m gonna delete the app and try something else. Keep working on it and I’ll keep checking back to see if there are improvements
After upgrading to iPhone v10 the Bant appt produces an error when and will not sync with MS Healthvault. MS Support says issue is with Bant. Bant Support does not appear to exist, at least they never respond to any queries on the issue. Bant responded to me and advised they will no longer support iPhone. So why is the app still available at the Apple Store to download.
Too simplified, doesn't give you the option to enter random bg. And who would share their bg's on Twitter or store them at google health? There are many good apps to track your blood glucose levels so my advice is to skip this one...
Understand how your unique lifestyle impacts your blood glucose control. What is your personal diabetes story? Take meal photos, track weight, capture step data, and even sync directly with your Bluetooth blood glucose meter. Over time, trending of this data will help you adjust your daily habits to improve your diabetes. What is pre and post blood glucose? Taking a blood glucose reading before a meal and then 2 hours afterwards, can help you see how your body responds to certain meals. Were you active after your meal? Did you skip a meal? Let's better understand your behaviours and how it affects your diabetes. It's not just about numbers, it's about your personal diabetes story. -- bant integrates with the Health app to read your blood glucose, carb, weight, insulin, and step readings. -- Medical advice disclaimer- UHN makes no warranties or representations as to the accuracy, sufficiency, or completeness of the data provided by the application.
