Glucose Buddy iPhone App and Website Review - Page 5

Accessibility

For a really good review of Glucose Buddy accessibility features and limitations I recommend the aninvisibleminority.wordpress.com. The author is legally blind and presents a very detailed review.

My Thoughts

The was the hardest review I have written to date. On one hand Glucose Buddy is a well thought out application with features not found on any other app. One the other hand, it is riddled with small problems that seem to have existed for some time without being addressed. With no update to the application in almost a year and major problems with the website, I wonder just how dedicated the developers are to maintaining this application. It does have good points and all the problems can be corrected. A review of the glucose buddy support blog informs that one of the original creators of the application, Matthew Tendler, is no longer an employee of MYLEstone Health, the company that developed the application, although he is still an owner. I have no idea what is going on with MYLEstone health but it appears to me that once Mr. Tendler left, all support and future development for Glucose Buddy left as well. I hope I am wrong. If I am wrong and this application is updated or the website issues addressed I will update this review.Thumbs Down

Unless the developers of this app and website correct the cross-browser compatibility issues and correct what I think are problems with how they average so much of the data, I would stay away from Glucose Buddy.

One final comment. When I am done using a website I usually remove all my data. There was no method I could find to quickly delete my account and the data stored on the websites database. I was able to delete one record at a time, however if a user had thousands of log entries I would hate to be them should they decide to remove their information.

Drinking two glasses of water before each meal may help people lose weight, a new study has found. Obese dieters who drank two glasses before breakfast, lunch, and dinner lost five pounds more than their dieting peers over the course of three months. Experts say it could be that the water helps fill people up more quickly, thus ensuring they eat less.
