Ratings and Reviews
Thank you for this app! Love almost everything about it. This app could definitely be a lifesaver, IF you already know WHERE the glucagon kit is located. But if the user can’t even figure that part out, then what? (Not including primary caregivers, they are most likely to get the kit quickly & administer the shot correctly.)
I *love* the fact that you can add the kits locations, but why not make it easier for the user to locate that info? A friend, co-worker, relative... who has little to no experience administering the glucagon shot will be flustered, either trying to remember where their diabetic friend said they kept it, or fumbling through the app, trying to find the feature that will tell them where to find the dang shot! All the while, our poor diabetic friend is about to (or already has) pass out! Oh yes, plus they have to take time to mix it.
Just a little change to an already helpful app... but it could make the world of difference! Please, make the format a little more user friendly, & a bit easier to navigate in a real-life emergency situation. Larger font, easy to navigate interface, with a large labeled button that clearly states: “shot location”.
Let’s make it easy for glucagon kit users... they are after all, trying to save someone’s life.
While the app is an awesome idea, it has a serious glitch where it won't respond to your swipes. Very frustrating because you can even scroll through all the steps if it doesn't respond. You need to be able to go through each step very quickly as you would be doing in a real life situation. Hope it gets fixed because it is a great app!
I was so excited to enter our kits in & be alerted to when they expire.
Well... now they’ve expired. I can’t edit the date in the kits to update to the new glucagon. Can’t figure how to delete them either but I can add more kits... looking forward to an update so I can continue to keep track of my 7 year old’s glucagon that’s at home and at school.
