This group is for people who are interested in trying out new diabetes-related smart phone and web-based applications that are in development, and giving feedback to help the developers make them as useful to people with diabetes as possible.  It's a great chance to to let the folks who are working to improve life with diabetes know exactly what we want and need.

Have you ever tried to use an application on your phone or computer that was supposed to help with your diabetes management, but missed the mark? Maybe it was confusing, or too time-consuming, the interface was hard to read or it didn't seem to really do much of anything. Here's a chance to let an application developer know BEFORE their app hits the market how they can make it better!

Hello everybody!

Thank you so much to those of your who shared your experiences and feedback on using Mobile Diabetes Detective. We learned so much from you and are already making changes to address your comments. But we would love to hear from more of you. Please take some time to use the application and let us know what you think:


For the full experience, please create your own account (this is a research project which means that we don't share any user information with anybody).

Thank you!

Hello everybody! Great to see new people joining in!

As Emily mentioned, the first application we would like you to try is MoDD (Mobile Diabetes Detective). Feel free to try it out with a test user account, or create your own (this will take a few minutes as the app will ask you a few questions). Feel free to post your comments here or reach out to me personally: lena.mamykina@dbmi.columbia.edu.

Thanks, and looking forward to hearing from you!
