Anyone know of any apps being developed for the iPhone? I just switched from a Treo 650, and am missing my CalorieKing carb database, among other things.

I know with the SDK release that we are likely to see some cool things in June, but am wondering if anyone has learned about any diabetes-specific apps.

Nothing here yet that I know of, but I was just thinking the same thing. I made the exact same switch a little over a month ago. Really happy with the iPhone so far. Wonder if the guys at are looking at the iPhone?
- Have a place to enter blood glucose readings, and allow users to enter in older blood glucose data. Allow them to use both unit sets (mg/dL , mmol/l)
- Allow people to enter medications, including quantities and times they are taken.
- Provide calculations of 7, 14 and 28 day blood glucose averages.
- Place to record A1C.
- In food search, allow users to tag items which have 15 or less grams of carbohydrates. Also, allow people to see carbs as the first nutritional information field.
Exactly!! A carelink system for the iPhone. (As it is carelink - on the minimed web page- only works on flippin PC's...)
and only then on XP not "7".
How about an App that keeps all the prescription #'s and reminds you when to refill them!!!!! Also that keeps track of how many refills you have left.?? Any thoughts??
Why does your "sweetspot" website go to a ".dm"? Firefox tells me that the cert for that site is for the .com only.
hi id like to see an easy ....way to record blood sugar numbers ....that would input date... time automaticly ....maybe a list of foods /quantitys as checklist......user input on main computer...alarms to remind you to test......way to mail results to doctor
thanks mark!
Hi !
I am little more demanding... I would like to have time(date), BG, insulin, OH (with food database, at least USDA one, and if there would be user_db option that would be nice (changeablke by user). PC application to add to database and to have data stored on computer as well as iPhone.... Actually I am looking for such application for my PocketPC too...
Hey all,

This app was released for the iPhone on July 17th, 2008:

Glucose-Charter(tm), v1.0.

There are 10 reviews at this point, giving it 4 out of 5 stars. It cost 4.99. I haven't downloaded it yet, although I'm on the verge. Has anyone tried it yet?

Apparently there are a few bugs, including not having a place to enter insulin amount, or the ability to adjust time/date stamps.

I am a mac user and I just haven't found any program that will really work for me and my life style. I spend quite a few minutes every few days writing everything down by hand, slowly scrolling back through my histories. It sucks, actually. I use a Minimed paradigm 522 pump.

In response to Adam's question - there needs to be a place for notes (stress, exercise, illness) and it would be cool to have a pattern/graph option.


another app log. i have no opinion of it as i've not used it yet.
