What a great resource!

This is such a needed app! Having diabetes can be isolating because of all the (unfounded) shame and stigma - and sometimes the existing communities tend to have an air of negativity in them. I’m SUPER excited for this app because it‘a such a beacon of positivity for those of us living with this disease everyday. Thank you, Healthline!!

A little disappointed

I love the concept of this app. All the people are great and the support from members is phenomenal! But that being said the app itself needs a lot of help. I don’t receive notifications like I should it’s all over the map sometimes yes most times no. There are glitches like you hit on a notification and it goes to a blank screen and sits and flashes. And finally don’t try to search for anything because that is disorganized at best. I went to look for a past post because I needed more information on it a it was nowhere to be found. I had things come up from years ago but never found what I was looking for and that was only posted a few weeks ago. I hope the developers can fix these problems because it would be the most awesome app ever. But am still very grateful for the support of the members.

Community is great, Dev is not

I used this app for a few weeks on my ipad, when I went to use my phone, I couldn’t sign in, after a finding my email domain was missing a letter, I tried to contact the developer to either correct the entry or create a new user I’d, after an iOS update I have been unable to use the app again as it has stored my phone number on an account I can’t access. Dev still hasn’t contacted me after more than a week since I was locked out. The folks using the app are positive and supportive. Wish I could have continued, but I’ll find another group with real developer supporting it. Thanks for the good times.
