Type 1 college student Greg Weintraub reviews the dLife Diabetes Companion App, which is both a logging app and education resource.
REVIEWER'S BREAKDOWN -
- multiple ways of viewing blood glucose entries
- a lot of information about food (recipes and nutrition) that is difficult to otherwise find in one place
- a user guide is built into the app
- no home screen, so navigation can be confusing
- no way to place custom tags on blood sugar entries
- no measurement of blood glucose in mmo/l (used outside the U.S.)
- some aspects of the interface load slowly
