WAY Overboard 2/5
I installed this app long ago. Did EXACTLY what I needed...tracking my glucose. THEN, wow, it became so cluttered with ads, useless junk (there may be some value to someone), that it’s became so difficult to be the simple glucose tracker I wanted that I had to dump it. So obnoxious. I wouldn’t mind chipping in to fund an app that was simple to use, AND THEN STAYED THAT WAY.
Subscription DOESNT WORK!! 1/5
By Oaky M
I purchased this app subscription to help me track my mothers glucose. I don’t mind paying for something I use.
However the adds are still there and the features are still locked!.
I emailed the developer repeatedly to report the issue. Each time submitting a screenshot of my purchase receipt. Still waiting for an answer.
To complicated 1/5
This program is much too complicated for me. How do I unsubscribe.
Almost there 4/5
Liked this app enough to subscribe for a year. Many features I do like.
If I could ask for more, I'd like to be able to see a synopsis of my daily macro intake.
It's good to see how an individual food rates, but at the end of the day I'd like to glance at my totals.
What were my percentages of fat, carb and protein consumed during any given day.
Would help with fine tuning.
Very good 5/5
I really like useing GLUCOSEBuddy it does everything that I need. Thank you
Had to shut my phone down because of error 2/5
I was trying to add my Facebook friends when it started blinking and wouldn’t go away.
Good but need to fix bugs 4/5
But every time I try to use camara for food Puc I get kicked out.
Not worth it 1/5
It doesn’t manage anything.
Not user friendly 2/5
By Nurse with opinion
The older version of glucose buddy was easy to use, intuitive, never had any issues with it. The current version is complicated and difficult to use. They ‘improved’ it into a mess. Wish I hadn’t wasted my money on it.
Great App 5/5
Even if you are just using the free version of this app there are a lot of options available. I've tried 3 other apps and none of them compare to those one. I like the product scanner for the food log in. It works great! Will be upgrading to the full version. The only comment I can make about the upgrade is that it would be nice to have a yearly renewal fee rather than have to pay full price again. Overall a great app!
Charging now for what was free 2/5
By Janis k-c
So I've been using this app for a long time and loved the a1c feature then with last update you now have to pay $39.99/yr to do what I've been doing all this time for free
Useless unless you want to upgrade 1/5
By Mama Linda Rose
All it does is have you enter data, then tell you to upgrade to premium to get anything that you couldn’t get by recording your data in your notes app.
Sugar Control 5/5
By Ed Plaster
I’ve been looking for an app that helps me log my food and my blood sugar so I can achieve better control
Too cluttered and expensive 2/5
I like the ability to include notes and tags, and the graphs are a good idea but not very useful on the free version. The screens are so filled with ads that it’s hard to actually see much of your own data. The paid version is WAY too expensive for what you get ($14+/month?!). I will continue looking for an alternative.
All in ONE 5/5
I can keep an eye on my glucose levels, meals, cals, control carbs..And my exercise levels in just one amazing app!!!
I like this app. 4/5
It’s easy to use and carry my glucose readings to my doctor appointments. I also like the estimated A1C. It helps keep me on track with my carb intake.
I am sad that it doesn’t take my activity-steps from my Fitbit. I don’t carry my phone during most of my activity, especially my water aerobics, but I do wear my Charge 3 Fitbit all the time. If it read from my Fitbit it would have 5 stars
The worst. 1/5
You download the app and they start grabbing at your for money for everything. This junk is what Steve Jobs hated.
LOVE the product but... 4/5
In the “activity” section, there is no weightlifting option. This is the best exercise for type 2 diabetics. PLEASE add!!!
Charge you to get back your own data! 1/5
Unconscionable that they hold your data hostage until you pay their premium fee to access your own older data! Terrible - I was forced to pay them. Don’t use this app! The only one star rating I’ve ever given.
Not easy to use, weird ad blocking screen 1/5
I’m not sure how this has gotten such good reviews! From the very beginning, there was a lot of pressure to “upgrade“, with even a warning of it this will be the “only time” I can upgrade, with a full screen countdown clock? 10,9,8...what? Of course I said no, and it ends up that the features they were trying to get me to pay for, are already on the app such as your A-1 C average level? I wanted to enter previous data from the last month but that became too difficult in this app. When you are entering the information, they have a tag that you can say before breakfast or before lunch etc. but then they don’t have a separate area to add food. Even though I might be entering my fasting blood sugar level, they make you add the food on that page? So in that entry you have to look hard to understand that I ate that breakfast AFTER I took my level. Also after entering about four numbers, this ad began to block the view and then when you click the X to close it, it would open it. That happened a few times, and I quickly deleted the app!!! Never had anything like this on an app!
One Stop Shopping, Kinda 4/5
2 days in and great app so far. I’m a visual person so graphs and images resonate and sometimes inspire me.
I love Integrated tracking of medicine, blood pressure, nutrition (haven’t used this yet but awesome that it’s here), and exercise tracking.
I am disappointed that my 2 main activities are not listed; Crossfit and Martial Arts (specifically Filipino Martial Arts).
I am also disappointed that there is no way to integrate a heart rate monitor for real time tracking during exercise.
Otherwise this is one of the best apps for diabetes tracking I’ve seen. One stop health tracking is where it’s at! Keep up the awesome work.
I really liked this app, I was looking into premium and decided to really analyze it.
App was really nice.
Adds are horrible 1/5
By Sara Parko
I couldn’t even get through day 1. Way too many adds and self promotion to upgrade. Let someone try it first, come on.
New diabetic 4/5
By To ur
Pretty good app. Helps me keep track of my sugars.
So glad I found this app 5/5
Where has this app been all my life one of the things I like most is you can send results to your doctor in PDF form that makes it so easyj
Love love love!! 5/5
This app has really helped me lose weight and get my diabetes under control! I have lost 37 lbs!! I am constantly checking to make sure I get as many steps in as I can. Plus, the link to LifeCoin is huge! I also found sweatcoin. I am using all of them!! It’s great!! Thank you!
Effective and efficient 5/5
This app is both effective and efficient at keeping your diabetes info at your fingertips (pun intended).
no daily tracking, hard to navigate 1/5
Free version fails to provide the most basic feature which is having the ability to simply track you day to day glucose levels. You need to wait for a weekly graph. The app is cluttered and seems to always have an add on the screen. For straight forward, clear and easy tracking use the app Glucose.
Adding recipes 4/5
By walley slayer
I like the app. Except for every time I try to add recipe it tries to sell you the upgrade and you can not add it. Frustrating.
Big Help 5/5
This app is a big help to keep track of my blood sugar readings.
Glucose test 4/5
It’s nice to be able to keep a record of your blood sugar but a better graph and A1C info would be helpful.
Great program 5/5
Great program to track glucose
Would like without adds 3/5
Keeps track of daily glucose readings and interfaces well with health and other medical apps
Amazing app 5/5
I have Hypoglycemia, and this app really helped me be on track
Glucose Buddy 5/5
It is really helpful,
Newest update renders app useless 1/5
Newest update renders app useless. Why get rid of sugar graph bars that line up with daily exercise. Spent an entire $39.99 and app still falls short of previous revs. I’m moving to another app
It works. 5/5
By Where's the outlet?
Keeps me on target!!!
Check up from Doctor 5/5
By mama marcy
My A1-C has drop to 6 after using Jardiance. I have lost 13 pounds. My blood pressure is 120/70. My sugar is between 70 and 110. I feel great.
Good app! 5/5
I love this app, it has helped me see what I’m doing wrong as well as what I’m doing right. I’ve learned to portion my meals, average out my blood sugar and pressure and share everything with my doctor. This app is well worth it! Though I hate it wouldn’t let me use my name to send a comment though!
Too many adds 3/5
Too many ads in your view
Cannot change the subscription. 1/5
I want to change my subscription to monthly instead of annual, but they will not let you do it! I wasted $39 for nothing. Wont even use it.
Love app, but... 3/5
I would like the food database to be more robust! Not up to snuff compared to some other apps like “Lose It”. Moreover, i haven’t been able to input recipes. Maybe haven’t tried hard enough because of so many other foods lacking, as above.
Most importantly to me; exercise is useless because I cannot input manually! I recumbent bike in the winter & will swim a lot in the summer. Program seems useless for indoor biking & obviously limited in swimming! But, I’d love to track exercise on BP & BS in the app.
Great app 5/5
By Husky dusky
Thanks I am very excited about this app. It is make me very aware and active in order to monitor about my health!!!
Premium is Wasted money 1/5
I paid for a year and found the app to be absolutely unusable. There are so many ads trying to sell you products that go with the app that you CAN’T use the app! It’s a scam. I’m disappointed.
Blood sugar 5/5
Nice way to log and track blood sugar.
Great App 5/5
Love the app. Only wish you could add menu items!
