It WAS a Great app 4/5
By The Art Deco
I really did like this app; it did everything I could want for monitoring
They decided you had to pay to get many of the features.
To be clear, I don’t mind, or have any problem paying for an app; people deserve to be compensated for their work. However, there’s a like between paying, and overpaying, which is where we are now
Update ruined this app 2/5
This app used to included an estimated A1C calculation. An update changed that to a paid feature. Something that the app used to provide at no cost they now charge $6 per month for! No thank you. There are plenty of other decent apps that do this calculation for free.
STOLE MY $30 1/5
Selected the upgrade to get A1C but although Apple emailed my receipt the app never changed. A1C locked. Restarted phone, still locked. I’m out $30!
I love this app, but now after almost a year it wants me to pay a fee for my estimated A1C....that’s disappointing
Subscription - bad idea 1/5
I loved this app when I first downloaded it two years ago. But as time passed, features have slowly been removed and added to a subscription model. The padlock on the A1c estimate and now any grid older than a week both caused me to stop using this app.
Don’t trust this app or its developers 1/5
I originally really liked this app as it gave me the info my Dr. wanted. Then this evening I went to record my last blood sugar test and found out that the app had been changed and they are forcing me to pay a unreasonable monthly fee to get the same or similar ability I had yesterday. If they can change the app on my iPad without my permission or my knowing about it ... what else can, or are accessing on my iPad. My review went from a 5 star to a 1 star. Don’t use this app.
Good app when it was free 1/5
By GW Rider 61
No way is this worth a monthly subscription. A one time purchase would be fair but not a recurring cost.and now they have locked down the graph!
New graph, new money grab 1/5
I don’t want to pay a subscription for every app I use!
Takes Advantage of Disease 1/5
I would have paid for this app, but was disappointed to see that it requires subscription to use as a full-featured app.
Worse, I was solicited for feedback often in order to improve upon an app I am now required to subscribe to if I want to benefit from my own feedback.
Unfortunately, the base (free) portion of this app does nothing more than provide for a basic log. There are other diabetic trackers that will provide the same features at a one-time charge.
By “improved graph”... 2/5
By The Uber Dork
...they actually meant “we’ve now moved the full graph behind a pay wall and the free version only includes a graph for 7 days. Pretty weak guys. Time to start looking for a better glucose tracking app.
Lack of Credibility! 1/5
By Az Bennelly
I wrote to the developer inquired about offering a special discount for diabetes patients as most medical providers do, he replied positively and agreed to offer 33% discount on the annual subscription. Unfortunately, his words were only on paper!.He never gives this offer at all. For the lack of credibility and for the lack of respecting the customers, I’m here declaring that this app is not deserved to be used.
Used to be great 1/5
This used to be an awesome app. In the past year they have locked out the A1c portion of the app and want you to pay for it.
Took away graph history over 7 days unless you pay 1/5
I was really enjoying this app then an update came and all the graph history over 7 days Is hidden UNLESS I pay the minimum $6.99. I’d rather delete and use the native Apple health app or find a new GENUINELY free glucose app. ✌🏻
Another update to lock out features. 1/5
By H. Melville
First, they updated and it locked out A1C unless you subscribe. Then it locked out more information on the data/insights page. Today there was an update with a “new and improved graph”...which is only visible if you pay a ridiculously high subscription.
This was a great app. Would have paid a flat fee as it had all the features I wanted and presented data in an easy to understand manner. Now it’s a micro transaction horror. It’s being removed from my phone and I’ll b using a different app that, while ad supported, doesn’t lock away the basic functionality.
Shame, as at my follow up yesterday my doctor really liked the way this app presented test results.
A life changer 5/5
Glucose is fantastic. It allows me to track my glucose and A1c easily, which keeps me on target for my goals. I highly recommend it for other diabetics.
Not impressed 2/5
I do not like the new and improved graph. The old one was much cleaner to look at. Sorry but it looks like a step backwards.
By Post me not
Each update adds more advertisements and locks down the features previously offered. This has happended with other apps as well. I won’t be updating anything else.
Sorry, but this app is not with the subscription fee just to get the estimated A1c. Back on the search. Love being able to electronically track and pull up morning fasting numbers. The estimated A1c feature was great to use as a tool. But the price for the estimate number. No thanks.
Not worth the trouble. 3/5
Support? What a joke! Paid for the app, Gets you nothing in the way of support. Used to love the app, now I don’t. A1c locked and when data cleared it returns next time app is started. Big big disappointment!
I loved this app. I’m Type-2 Diabetic.
Been using it since July 2019
But now there’s a paywall to access all the data that was once free.
And the recent update crashes every time I open the app.
Gonna look somewhere else now.
I was gonna rate it 5 stars but nah 👎🏻
A1c now locked behind subscription 2/5
I’d pay a one time fee for it to be unlocked but a subscription is really pushing it.
No AC1 2/5
This used to be great, now it’s just OK after putting AC1 tracker behind paywall.
Not very happy that I am now asked to pay for the estimated A1c now. That’s a rip off.
Love this app 5/5
By Haider fjs
It’s really helping me to keep up with my blood glucose check
Money Trap 1/5
Suddenly, the estimated A1C is a locked subscription based feature. Uninstalling this app. I hate when sneaky developers change an app on my device like that. They do it whether it’s supported by adware or if you paid for it. That’s the greedy nature of software developers. I won’t feel sorry for this developer when Apple inevitably incorporates these very simple recorder and calculator functions into the Health app, and forces these developers to find another source of revenue.
Was an awesome app 2/5
I am new to prediabetes and diabetes. I found this app with awesome reviews. I could do everything I wanted. As others have mentioned, one day there is a subscription - monthly or yearly option. A one time fee would be fine but not a subscription out of the blue.
Great app 3/5
When I first got this app, it was easy to use and free. I’m keeping the app, but I’m not paying more for an A1c average than it costs me at the hospital. It’s too bad that you guys went that way.
Estimated A1C No Longer Free 1/5
Estimated A1C No Longer Free
This app was free... No longer now for $5 bucks a month... 1/5
Not nice to change the rules... Without letting the user know...
This was a free app... Now this app is $30 a year...
Could be better 3/5
I would rate this a 4 or even a 5 if the meds data base was expanded.Those of us taking more than diabetes meds need to track those too. I need to take cancer meds but they don’t exist on the current database. I requested a change but...crickets! Also the filters for reports could also be expanded. No need to show all data for 90 days in a report if docs want only Blood Pressure or only Fasting Blood Sugar. It is too cumbersome now. If you need to go back and add or edit something daily for a week you have to readjust the date and time 7 times. It would be better and faster if you could adjust those once and make the 7 additions the go back to the current timeline.
WAS a great app!?!?! 1/5
have used it for a while now, but the recent update charges for A1C calculation....time to find a new app
It was a 5 decrease to 4 4/5
By Yahoo User2
Reason for decrease in rating is because it used to estimate of A1c now it making me pay for it and I had this app for a few yrs on my phone. The reason I dled the app was because it gave me my A1c estimate and now it doesn’t. Not fair to long time app users.
Looking for different app that will provide me with my A1c.
By Friendly player
My husband and I have been using this app for over a year. It was an easy app but then came the changes, different PDF file, NO A1C for free and never providing feedback to questions. I have become very disappointed in this app and will be searching for a new one.
Looking for something else 1/5
I have used this app for a long time and loved it. Now they want to charge for the estimated A1C. I don’t think so.
Loved it until they charged me 1/5
I was loving this app for months, all of a sudden I try to use it and now I have to pay to see the results. No way,
I have had this app for at least 3 years I think... well a long time and have touted it to every diabetic I know...
BUT now they need to make money and have locked the estimated A1c...so I will aggressively let everyone I have told to seek other apps cause it’s all about the money!!!
I paid for a year’s subscription so I could get the A1C estimator. It continually bars me from using it for weeks on end. I hate this piece of crap. These people are thieves.
SHAME ON YOU 2/5
By TM- Disappointed
my husband and I both use this app to track our blood sugar and A1C average. This is the only number our doctor asks for when we see him every 3 months. He also looks at the graph if he feels there is a need. Now the A1C is licked and costs $30 to unlock! Is this greed or stupidity? It was free but now we will no longer use this but go in for testing instead. It all costs the same and at least I get to see my doctor when I have it checked there! What a bummer. I could tell if I needed to be worried before now I am back to having to figure this myself. SHAME ON YOU!
I have used this app since being diagnosed with type 1 in May. Have sung it’s praises to my doctors. However now if you want your Est A1C you must pay a fee.
To me this is profiting off desperate people. The cost of having diabetes is horrible to be begin with. The amt of supplies you need is overwhelming. And if that is not enough. Now we must pay to get a simple mathematical calculation.
Nice going. Will be looking for other apps.
Was 5 stars, then 2 stars 2/5
Updated on 12/3/2019
They just keep locking it down. The A1C was available in the data tab, but now that is locked too. But I get my A1C estimate from my meter.
As a pure data logger, it is easy to use. But paying $30/year just to get the A1C? You gotta be kidding. The calculated A1C isn’t accurate anyway since it is calculated only based on the logged data points. My blood sugar could be very low when the readings are taken, but spikes in between the data points. This app has no way of determining that. So they are making me pay $30/year just to give me a guesstimate? My meter gives me that already. or I can go back to using a spreadsheet and calculate a average.
Updated on 11/13/2019
I found the A1C in the Data tab at the bottom of the screen. They moved it from the main data entry page. So now I don’t understand that padlock and what A1C info you will get if you pay the subscription.
Updated on 11/06/2019
Well, this was a good app until this most recent update. The A1C report was a standard feature, now in order to see it, it will cost me $30/year, every year. Are you kidding?
The tracking function is still decent, sure beats writing it down on a piece of paper. However, my tester will display my A1C, so that’s where I will go to get it.
I would gladly pay $5 one-time to purchase the app.
Sorry guys, bye.
Original review below:
This is a great app for tracking glucose and feeding the data to the Apple Health app. It is easy to use, good UI, decent graph output.
Some suggestions for future versions:
- Allow users to re-arrange the sequence of time-of-day options. Most users probably test at certain times during the day, such as “wake up” “before lunch” “before bed”, but the predetermined sequence forces the users to scroll through all of the other time options just to select the one we actually want.
- Explain exactly what are the benefits of creating an account. I signed up with userid/pswd, but it doesn’t really do anything, and couldn’t find any details on what it does. Does it save our data on some cloud or icloud? Sync with other devices, or just to send us junk mail? I ended up logging off and didn’t sign-in again.
Updated on 1/15/2019
With the most recent update, this app is now 5 stars. It is simple to use, clear display of data points and graph, allow users to specify ideal range for high/low, and date range for calculating A1C.
One user made a comment about the app’s calculated A1C not being the exactly the same as the one taken at the doctor’s office, but fairly close. This makes perfect sense, since this app can calculate A1C based ‘only’ on the data points entered into the app, maybe x number of times each day, compared to the doctor’s office which is the actual A1C taken from the blood sample over 90 days. This app’s estimate A1C gives the user a trend, so the user can judge how well they are doing over time.
Thanks for creating this great app.
Money hungry developers 1/5
What started out as a very useful app is going downhill fast. They keep taking away features with every “upgrade”. I expect glucose tracking to disappear within the next upgrade or two. C’mon, no estimated A1C unless you pay? It’s a calculated value for Heaven’s sake. For that you want a monthly fee? No way.
Changed App 1/5
Used to be able to see your A1C until they upgraded the app. Now it’s locked unless you upgrade to premium. I’m not paying to see my A1C. Deleted the app.
Wow! So good!!! 5/5
When you have enough to do just taking readings and meds an app like this is beyond helpful. So detailed yet easy to use.
Paid Ads Removal, Continued Ads placement 3/5
I am writing this review to protest the ads that have cropped on my screen when using this app to log my glucose readings. I would have rated this app with **** stars but I can’t get convinced to do so. When I downloaded this app, I PAID $ to have all ads removed. Why are you guys so sneaky at the way you push your ads to customers who have paid for ads to be removed? Why is my scream getting so distorted with your ads? Isn’t it unfair that you would not ask me for consent to place ads on my screen. We are diabetic patients who do not want to feel more stressed out by sifting through your ads just so we can use the app for what it was intended to do. I urge you to please, remove those ads from my scream, and hope that you take my complain serious. I might have to ask for a percentage of $ you get for placing your ads on my screen when you know ver well that, I paid to have them removed.
Frustrated app user.
I have used this app for about 4 Month’s now, and I absolutely love it!!! Not only can I log my Blood Sugar’s but it even gives me my A1C. I really like this app because the app told me my A1C was 7.6 and when I went to my Endo appointment... it was actually 7.7!!!
Definitely recommend it:))
Not anymore 1/5
By bravest PAPAyA
Used to track my A1C on here, but that’s no longer free and not worth $5/mo. Maybe a 1 time fee, because I get needing to make money. I guess the developers care more about money than helping diabetics.
A1C locked 3/5
It was a five-star app, but they recently locked the 90 day average for the A1C. You can unlock it by paying a monthly fee.
Great app ruined! 1/5
I just wanted to let you know how deeply disappointed I am that you have decided to take away the most important and useful feature of this app. The A1C estimate was a great benefit to me. But the allure of the damnable subscription model has won out. I would have gladly paid a one-time price for this app. Now, I guess I will be searching for a new app. I thought your team really wanted to help us through our diabetic journey. The true reason has become apparent. It’s a darn shame.
Was a good app, ruined by subscription model 1/5
By Todd DD
Was a good app, liked that it respected privacy and didn’t require and account. added expensive subscription model and took previously free features and made them paid. Deleting.
