Most times won’t open

Decent app but does not fully communicate with Apple Health. It also about 50% of the time won’t open on the first try. Have had to reinstall a few times.
The concept behind the device is good, but if you work with your hands and skin is tough it might not read.

Doesn’t sync to Apple Health!!!

People bash Apple for having so many developer requirements, but this app is an example of why this is. It’s absolutely infuriating that this doesn’t sync with Apple Health. It’s a shame because the device is pretty decent. However if I’m manually entering the info to Apple Health, I might as well be using a dumb device.

The app is also overbearing and intrusive. There’s no option to use the app without an account. They nag you to change settings to always allow your location, and they want all kinds of other personal information. You can’t even use the app unless you state that you have some form/stage of diabetes. This all screams of privacy issues with absolutely zero user benefit since again, entering the data into Apple Health must be done manually.

That said, if you don’t use Apple Health (you should) and you’re the type of person who would say post your blood glucose levels daily on Facebook, then meh… you might be ok with this app despite also having laggy synchronization and useless feature bloat.

Frustration

Twice since I purchased the Pogo monitor, the app has logged me out on its own. I believe it was part of an upgrade, but really don’t know why. Each time I have had to reset my password to log in. Once submitting the new password to log in, the app requires me to pair a pogo monitor. When I connect the monitor I purchased and have been using for less than a year, I get a message that says my monitor is already paired with another account. I run the risk of losing the historical data, which my GP asks for at each 3-month check up. Why is this a problem. To establish “patterns”, you need data. So frustrating for a monitor that works so well and makes it easy to test.
