LogFrog DB does not have a website to sync data too and for some that might be an issue. It should not be. The application stands alone very nicely. Data backup to Google is secure and as reliable as any website.
LogFrog DB is fun to use. The data can be saved and viewed in manners no other app I have used can. Not having a website to sync your data and view it with ease is a small setback. Not everyone has a Google account, nor do they want one. I have several and my guess is most nerds do too. If e-mail exporting was done with an attachment alongside the embedded text, that would be better than my work around. Some people will say it lacks detailed food tracking ability, I say great. I have a food logging app that I love. I would rather have a diabetes app that tracks carbs only than one that does a half-!#% job of tracking all food data. At least one diabetes app I am currently testing does sync with another food app. But that the food app sucks! Where is the benefit to me?
LogFrog DB has set a new standard for ease of use and simplicity in design. It will be the bench mark by which I measure other diabetes management apps.
LogFrog DB on my iPhone has been a valuable tool for helping me manage my diabetes. Regular blood glucose testing is very important for any diabetic.

When entering data is inconvenient, cumbersome or boring, I have a hard time recording the information I know I should. This app is not inconvenient, not cumbersome and not boring.

Experts say it could be that the water helps fill people up more quickly, thus ensuring they eat less.
