It’s was okay.

The app was okay, I was hopeful and went ahead and paid for the year however when I got inside the app, the lists of foods are limited. I found out I had to put in the foods I am accustomed to eating. There are no meats, chickens, or anything like this to choose from...which are consumed by many daily. If the food lists contained more of the everyday food people eat I would have kept the app.
It’s hard enough being diabetic on its own let alone having to enter in your own food, find out the GI, how much it weighs etc so that it could be entered. that’s too much work for an app you pay for. I was hopeful sorry I had to cancel. 😓

Developer Response ,

The app is about glycemic index and carbohydates. Meat doesn't contain carbs so its glycemic index is 0. There's no need to include them in the list because the idea of glycemic index and carbohydrates is explained in the first page of the app.

Nope. To get all the features they've implied come free you gotta pay $4.00 for it.

I don't know about you, but I hate being manipulated, and this app has one sneaky, bait and switch app-store description.

Allow me to preface the following with this: I don't mind paying for a good/better app. Do it all the time. But, the developer for this thing must be a former E.A. smartphone game developer because they're charging TWO separate $2 in-app purchases for features they've conveniently implied come with the free one; They buried the required purchase part after the main first paragraph where it implies the features come free. You gotta be really paying attention to catch it.

Now, I admit that $4 isn't braking the bank, especially for a good app. This app might be good after you've gone through the process of buying all the features needed, but I ain't rewarding them for their deceptive practices.

Good App Needs Some Improvements

Being a Type 2 diabetic I am constantly looking for diabetic tools that will help me manage my diabetes ... like counting glycemic loads.

This app is almost there but lacks certain features that will make this app great.

Adding combination foods is extremely important. While this app allows you to add new foods it falls short on convince because you have to know the GI for the food and almost always have to look up on the Internet. Very inconvenient!

Still don’t understand the food calculator: does the food calculator exits to create combination foods? If so, how do I transfer the items I listed on the food calculator under ONE NAME to my daily log instead of the multi items that were added.

I saw today that all my foods under GL tab in my food table just disappeared ... what the hell just happened? Did I hit a wrong button? It would be nice if I could restore that tab!

I believe this app is on the right track, but just not 100% there yet ... I’ll be glad when it is!
