So far, I have read about the following diabetes-related applications for the iPhone:
* DiaMedic (already mentioned in the discussion mentioned above)
* GlucoseCharter (also mentioned before)
I am curious if anyone has tried any of these and what your experience has been with them.
FYI i wanted to develop the app for the iphone like some people mentioned but you need to pay to develop for the iphone without a guarantee it will be approved by apple so i didn't. i started working on an app that will run on android.
I had called the reps of glucophone. They anticipate they will roll out in the next 6 months through a major provider. Nice thing regarding the glucophone is the attachment will be the meter and can send results directly to the server so you can upload it on your computer or can be sent to parents or caregiver. If this phone does roll out, the plan is the iPhone will use the attachment as well.
The recent TCOYD conference in San Diego had put a picture of the glucophone up to remind everyone to set their phones to vibrate. Talk about OOOOOHs and AAAAAAHs from the crowd of 1000+.
My daughter and her boyfriend and I were talking about it and he thought it would be convenient and discrete.
Have you seen Pocket Aid for the iPhone? It lets you put your medications, doctor numbers, contact numbers and so forth.
It is not specifically for diabetes but is a very nice tool to have for the just in case times.
Has anyone seen the Glucose buddy? its 5.99 I am all for free, but sometimes you have to pay to get a good one. I think as others have mentioned I would probably be a pain because you would have to manually input. But I am a parent and have to manually input anyway. I have to put it all on the computer (to email to the DR. ) and then in a Binder for the Dr. and she has it in her meter. I just thought that this would be a great way for me to be able to keep track in case of emergency. When I have to call the Dr. they always ask for the numbers for the day.
Just wanted to let you know I've developed an app for the iPhone/iPod Touch.
Islet 2.0 allows entry of glucose, insulin, food, and exercise data. Backdating is possible. You can email comma-separated lists to export the data. Graph all types of data - view high, average, and low data on an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Export full-size graphs. $2.99 on the App Store - http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=2....
I am actively developing this app still and would love to hear some feedback! You can find more information and screenshots here: http://www.iabetics.com
