Ratings and Reviews
Much Better Than The OEM App!
I use a True Metrix Air, and while I love the Bluetooth connectivity, their app hasn’t been updated in over a year, and I can no longer adjust anything, because all the settings are broken.
I downloaded this app a long time ago, but it didn’t have the Bluetooth support for my device.
I just reinstalled it, and I’m so glad I did!
Synced perfectly, and downloaded all the data from my device, so I haven’t lost any of my old data!
Thank God there’s an app out there, that allows me to continue to use my Bluetooth device for glucose monitoring!
Great diabetes app for Type 1. Missing Apple Health Integration
-Easy to read graphs.
-Easy to enter information quickly without extra clicks.
-Excellent reports on website.
Allows entry of custom medications such as Symlin, GLP-1, etc.
-Data export feature (however this could be better; I have to select the email option and then grab the file from an email rather than export directly).
-Pleasing color scheme.
-Reminders for medication
-Displays average BG and insulin over various periods of time.
-Syncs with Strava for exercise data!
-Fast load without the extra useless eye candy of other diabetes management apps.
-Does not write to Apple Health unless you have a CGM. For finger stick people, neither glucose nor insulin injections export to Apple Health.
-Does not import food data from 3rd party apps. PLEASE PLEASE add this! This will bump to 5 stars! Either a sync with Cronometer or a read from Apple Health will do (Cronometer writes carbs, protein, and fat to Apple health). If you read carbs, fat, or protein from Apple Health, then effectively you have added sync from other popular food trackers such as myfitnesspal.
-Export of CSV only vía email is a bit klunky, though it works.
-Cannot remove bad data. If you have sugar on your finger or use a strip to test to make sure it is really Diet Coke that the waiter brought you, those readings cannot be removed from your database - and mess up your charts.

Longtime Glooko User
Longtime Glooko user & T1D.
Back in the day when I got my first iPhone, the iPhone 4s I immediately sought out a way to get my glucose data on my phone. This was back when they still sold the analogue cable to plug into the side of your glucometer to sync in readings into your device. I found this super helpful back then to share data with my doctor. Eventually technology caught up and began to have Bluetooth and cloud services so Glooko became a bit of a dinosaur and I stopped using it.
Finally transitioned to pump therapy after almost 30 years MDI via Omnipod + Dexcom.
Glooko is a partner with Omnipod apparently so I finally re-downloaded the app in an effort to track my insulin delivery with the software since the original omnipod system is a bit antiquated and requires usb sync to get data into the cloud for review.
Overall, the app hasn’t changed much amazingly. Slight improvements but plenty of room for growth imho. Also could really use a widget to reference delivery data, that would useful.
Syncing with Dexcom seems buggy. Works off and on, but not always. My app didn’t update for a week with glucose data even though settings confirmed I was actively synced with my Dexcom account.
