I want my money back! This app crashes every time I load it. Worthless!
But I see two major flaws immediately. (1) It assumes you will always forever only eat three times per day, and exactly three times per day, and the time elapsed between those meals will never vary. The literature even says words to the effect of "since that's what your physician orders". Um, no she doesn't. Even in the olden days when you were required to match your food to your insulin and most type 1s were only taking two shots per day of mixed short and intermediate, FOUR meals were suggested. But in modern times of MDI and matching your insulin to your food, no one has over told me how many times to eat or when I can eat. This REALLY needs to be changed to be effective and useful to the modern type 1, IMO. In the meantime, since I generally eat twice pet day, I'm going to hope it will accept -0- insulin and -0- carb entries. (2) it should allow for multiple BS checks. If BS is out of control (which is the supposed target audience for this app) you're typically checking three times per meal - right before, an hour later, and two hours later, because that's the best way to spot patterns that variables will produce. You especially need to do this for the last meal, since checking what could be over 12 hours later is largely useless for determining if your preprandial dose was sufficient - or if maybe it's your long-acting that needs adjusting.
Another thing I don't like, but thankfully can be turned off, is that it assumes I'm going to eat the exact same number of carbs each meal, again, based on "what my physician told me". First of all, the RD or CDE would be the one to tell me, but again, not since the long-outdated "exchange diets" has that scenario existed, and even back then my exchange plan did not set the same number of carbs each meal. Thank goodness that can be changed. I also wish it would account for those of us using TAG since it would be nice if I could dispense with doing all the math TAG entails.
All in all, I'm still not clear whether I'm even using it correctly or exactly what it's going to end up telling me, but after using it a couple of weeks I'll come back and update my review.
