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.

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.

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.
Was Good. Would pay once but not ongoing. 3/5
Was a great app. Fairly accurate to my blood work results. I would pay for the app if it was a reasonable one time purchase but I won’t do a subscription that’s as high is this is. I just need to track and get an estimate on my a1c.
Now charging a subscription for an estimated A1c? That stinks and I’ve just deleted the app. I’d be fine with a one-time price to buy the app, but an ongoing cost?
I have been using this app for quite some time and found it useful as apps go. One day I find a lock on the A1c and ransomed for money when it was free the day before. No warning, no options. Sleezy way to do business! You guys nust be ex used car salespersons to pull this crap! Glucose+ money from consumer is more like it! Too bas I can’t give it a no star for a rating, now belongs in the trash!
This app used to give you your A1C estimate. Now you have to pay for it
That’s a bummer.
Gave two stars. Really..charging almost $5.00 to get an average glucose reading which was previously no charge. This change is so greedy. Used to be a great app. Now taking it off my phone.
Bad update 1/5
The most recent update took a great app and removed some basic features that you have to pay for now. Look somewhere else, there are other apps that are still free
this was a fine app until the last update. now, to see one’s estimated a1c one must pony up $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year. once again, greed wins the day.
Was fine, not anymore 1/5
I liked this app cause it was the simplest app. All I need to do is track my glucose, nothing else. One morning I woke up to them no longer offering estimated a1c unless you pay. Will be deleting.
It’s not easy being diabetic. 4/5
By M.C. Waffle
It’s nice to have a simple system that keeps details in line.
It WAS great 5/5
It was going great and then today I wake up and it’s a paid app. Can’t see your A1C now they want you to pay for it after 6 months of using it. Should have been a paid app from the start.
Was great, now not. 1/5
By Biscuit and chips
I have to PAY for my estimated A1C now?! Seriously? Such bs. I will find another app. Horrible.
By From an old Programmer
I have used the app for along time. The reason I started using the app is A1C, easy to use, & can delete the data when ever I needed.
I to would buy the app but I don’t rent. Hate the A1C info was blocked but life.
New Monthly Charge 1/5
By Kee Kee 29
It’s too bad they decided to now charge a monthly fee for someone to see an ESTIMATED A1C number. I will be removing this app.
Tricks you into thinking it’s a “free” app 2/5
Used for several months and enjoyed the simple manual entry use. accurate A1C . Then after 3 months wants a yearly $30 to track A1C, nope ! I’ll pay you $30 for lifetime tracking but not $30/year.
Needs work and no Subsrcriptions 1/5
Doesn’t sink between devices. Cannot enter everything on one screen. Requires subscription. I was thinking this was going to be the app for me until everything LOCKED and now needs a monthly subscription. I do NOT do subscriptions and have no desire to pay a monthly fee and be nickel and dimed into poverty. A one time fee I might pay if they fixed somethings, but I am not paying every month for the rest of my life
Warning-Do not update 1/5
Would only rate as 0 but reviews won’t allow it to be lower than a single star. Must pay now to see estimated A1C numbers. Was a great app until this latest update. I will be deleting.
Yep, losing another person..... 1/5
I now have to pay 30 dollars a year for my estimated A1c........that was included in the basic until this recent update.....that's just bad business. Shame on you guys.
Grandfather people who put you on the map! 1/5
Not paying this.....I would've even considered .99c for current subscribers. But no I'm not doing this!
Money hungry 1/5
They are now charging for your estimated A1C, which was a free feature. Don’t we already pay enough when we have diabetes? Deleting the app.
Features now locked and require payment 2/5
After getting used to the app over the last 6 months for my family member’s diabetes, I just found that I can no longer get an A1C calculation in the app without subscribing to one of the new plans. There is literally a digital lock where that calculation would be. This is truly poor form. App team should have grandfathered in prior users as opposed to requiring payment for features that were previously gratis.
By b d bruce
I use this app tp monotreme my blood sugar and a1c it’s perfect except why anyone would expect us to pay for a upgrade to see our est a1c is just WRONG!!!
This WAS a five star app 1/5
Been using this ever since I found I am diabetic back in April. And it works great.
And then they just took the main feature away, estimating your a1c and want you to pay $5 a month all of a sudden.
You’re gone. Switching to another app moneygrubbers!
A1C Estimate Is No Longer Free 4/5
Used to use this app daily but now they want to charge for certain features. A1C calculator being one of them. Changing to another FREE app.
Went from 5 star to 1 star 1/5
Loved using this app to track my a1C but now that feature is locked and I have to use a paid monthly or yearly subscription for that feature? Not worth it to me. A one time fee for the app and maybe I would bite but not a recurring subscription for the 1 feature most diabetics want. Guess I go back to just letting my doctor tell me what my a1c is every 3-6 months.
Used to be... 3/5
I have used this app for over a year and enjoyed it. It has helped me- mostly to track my blood sugar levels and my A1C. Now the developers got greedy and the latest update means now I have to pay for the A1C levels! No thank you, I will move on and find another app that doesn’t try to extort my money. That’s what the ads are for anyway.
A1-C just padlocked until I subscribed. 1/5
It's a very good app and I was using on a regular basis however, today I see a padlock on an estimated A1 C and the ransom of a subscription to see the estimated results.
No thanks I'll go elsewhere.
Free version doesn’t calculate A1C anymore 1/5
I have been using this free App for 2 years. Because of the recent App change, it doesn’t calculate A1C anymore (only the new expensive version does), therefore I will switch to another App.
How frustrating.... 1/5
I have been using this app since my diagnosis of diabetes and have shared it with many due to the tracking of sugars, seeing an estimated A1C and the visual tracking feature. How disappointed and frustrating it is when you open the app...and BOOM now it’s money to review those things that have been encouraging and helpful to stay on track. Yeah...no thanks. Will be removing this app. Not sure the reason for the change....it was not for the better. Will be warning others about this once praised app and sudden costly changes that magically appear while disappearing features you have been using with no warning.
Wow, was free now paid 1/5
I’ve been using this app for months and it did its job. Now you have to pay to see your est. ac1, really!!!
Charging ?????? 1/5
Loved the nice simple app was easy use and the A1C estimates were great.
Why would you all of a sudden charge for that????? I have me desire pay for it and sure hope they just don’t start billing with out permission based on an obscure statement in terms of service.
Going have delete app.
Money hungry 1/5
I’ve used the app and liked it until now suddenly they are greedy and want almost $5 a month to tell you A1C that they use to do free. Not into apps that want to exploit someone’s disease for money. I’m deleting this app.
Glucose Monitor 2/5
After a trial period, you have to pay $4.99 a month for your A1C score
Purged My A1C History 1/5
Woke up one morning and they decided to hold my A1C readings hostage. After years of using, this app is a bust. Do not buy.
Now they want to “monetize” your data. 2/5
After using it for some time they took away estimated A1C and made it a paid only feature.
After collecting your data they decided to hold some of it hostage for $$$. Can not trust them! They could do the same with my records in the future. Don’t depend on this app if you value your health data!
I’m have been using this app for a long time now to track my number. I’m appalled that you now want to charge to see what the A1C estimation is when it used to be free!
You should be ashamed of yourself. I will be uninstalling this app!
This was a 5 star app for me Until 1/5
I downloaded this nice free app to monitor my glucose and even have an A1C estimate. Things have been awesome 5 Star until today! Now they suddenly want me to pay a monthly fee to use the A1C tracker. They already have my information fir solicitation purposes and who knows who they sell that to. They also have lots of my glucose history for that same purpose they might sell. Now they suddenly spring a few on me!!!! That makes this a 1 star rating if that. I lodged a complaint and have not heard back. If they do not resolve this I will simply get a different free app. User beware.
Good but watch out for the ball buster 2/5
By Tulsa Kid
I’ve been using this app for a little over four months and it WAS a great a little app to track all of my needs.
Now they have cut out some of the items it tracks and in order to get them back, they want you to pay $4.99 a month!
Grab a piece of paper and a pen and do just as good a job as this app.
Unfair to public to suddenly change to a MONTHLY fee to do what they’ve already been doing FOR FREE!!!
Got greedy 1/5
Was a useable app but not like everyone else they went to a subscription plan and are charging for a feature that was free. Time to find a new app.
A1C Ransom!!! 1/5
I’ve used this app for 9 months and loved it. Now comes the A1C ransom. Sure, I realize the developers need to make money but, as others have noted, a one time fee is fairer than a monthly/annual subscription. You guys (developers) are acting like this a gaming app, when instead, the people who use this have a serious medical condition, and rely on the A1C reading to stay healthy. Shame on you for a bait and switch scam!
