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.
- there's only the ability to enter 4 readings. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Bedtime. There's no fast/morning or pre-meal. You could, I suppose, enter in 2 breakfasts then note which one is the pre and which one is the 2hr later. Bedtime I guess you could note "waking" for the morning fast.
- there's no entry for medication
- pause too long while drag/dropping and it sees it as a completed entry
- I like the "trends" graph
- I like the drag/drop kinda thing going. you can fine tune it once it is entered.
Due to insurance copays rising I am going from from my pump back to MDI. My pump (medtronic) used to calculate dose based on bs and carbs- so i was looking for something like that for my phone. I have a palm pre. I found an app for it called Diabetrac that does the same thing as my pump. Ran a few tests to compare between the two and it looks good. As soon as my pens arive I will be switching over.
Just noticed (2:30 MDT Tuesday Sept. 21, 2010) that Diabetes Pilot has gone from $12 to $6. For a limited time... Is it worth trying now? I've thought it looked good but the price has always scared me away. I don't know how long "limited time" is, sometimes it's very short. Anyway, has anyone tried it and liked it?

I use Diabetes Pilot for the iPhone and I have the desktop component. I really like it. The customizable food database information is easy to enter. They are very responsive when I've ever had an issue. They respond on weekends. I never regretted getting it. I just wish it could control my pump and take data from my Dexcom. See? I still believe in magic.
