Review by cherry2win

Waited and worth it! - Had pc version for two years with type2 and it really helped. Swithed to Mac a year ago and the consequesnce was that Diabetes Pilot was not supporting Mac. I ended up talking with the founder of Diabetes Pilot and he assured me that it would be developed down the road. Well, it is here and I have updated to the Mac and with ease was able to synch wirelessly through my iPhone and I'm very happy to be back on line. In the meantime I was reclassified to adult onset type1 and am even more happy to have the Diabetes Pilot tool to aide in the management of the disease.

Version 1.3.2
Review by cablepuller

Food almost Impossible - This program could be so much more but it is just frustration to the Nth degree. It does not recalculate edited foods. If your food is onions your choice is 1 cup. You van edit that to .25 cup but one must then go through and do the math for every bit of nutritional information for 1/4 cup of onions. This program is nothing but a spreadsheet that only wants you to use what they have. Editing can be done, but it’s a nightmare!

Version 1.4.3
Review by Rex Rana

The Best Diabetes App - I have been using this app for a number of years. My doctor’s are impressed with the reports that can be produced. I have also tried other apps (some free and others with relatively small charges) and have found them either adequet or silly. I especially like that I can taylor the medications (including Insulin types) and can track and monitor weight, Glucose and BP, among other important vitals. The Food Database is large and I can add other foods that I cannot locate in the database. I highy receommend this app.

Version 1.4.3
Review by Parsondave

Pretty good program - I find the glucose and exercise programs exceptional. I would like to see a line for A1C readings. I really don’t like the food logging program at all. Some products for which I wanted to alter quantities were measured in ounces; i needed them to be measured in cups or tsp or tblsp. Altering amounts requires an esoteric knowledge of how the foods are calculated, then apply basic arithmetic to recalculate volumes appropriately. The locating foodstuffs is awful, and requires guesses as to how the particular food is catalogued. It is not a transparent part of the program. I use another much simpler program for logging food, then transfer calories and carbs to Diabetes Pilot by using the Quick Entry button. Fortunately that part of the program accepts all kinds of names that I can use for these entries. If Calorie Count provided Glucose logging, and a place for A1C logging I would use that program exclusively. But they don’t. What I do works for me, therefore I am content to give Diabetes Pilot a 3 star.

Version 1.4.3
Review by Ron46

Pricing change - I purchased this application for MAC, iPhone and iPad years ago and have been had a positive experience with the applications. Now the functionality I used is being held hostage for an annual fee. If I knew this originally I could have made an informed decision, now it feels like paying an annual ransim is required for what I have been using. I know the industry is going this way, but the policy is stated when the app is purchased, not after years of use. I have found another application that even supports iCloud jsynchronization. Bye Diabetes Pilot!

Review by astabear

Great tracking app - I have been using this app for 3 months. It is an excellent tool to record glucose readings, weight, exercise, and food intake. I like the interface with the ipad, the iphone and now the apple watch. Easy to use and understand. I believe this is an excellent tool in the management of diabetes.

Review by NotSoOldFogy

Excellent App. - Easy to understand, even easier to use. I can track my food intake / exercise regimen and see what’s working and what I might need to change. For a New Diagnosis it’s made it extremely easy for me to understand how this New Normal aspect of my life works and what I need to do to manage it. Bonus? Even my Dr was impressed. They were aware of tracking App’s but had never seen anything like this one before. During a visit, if they want to know how my sugar / carbs have been doing over the past few weeks? My phone has it. Graphed or listed. The ONLY concern I have with this App is security/privacy. One thing that’s concerned me from the very beginning (Almost caused me to by-pass this App while searching for something I could use on my phone) is the back-up/sync method. Not sure what the platform requirements for the App are but, I can’t see ANY reason why link-cable synching/backup is NOT possible with this program. Synching over Wifi, while convenient, is simply not secure. ESPECIALLY over public / unfamiliar Wifi networks. Which is where someone who travels frequently might find themselves. Needing to back-up private, medical, information to a laptop but unable to cable-link to a device to do so. A completly secure cable link would solve this problem with optional Wifi link when trusted networks are available. This seems kind of obvious. So why Wifi ONLY?
