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. Recording those readings and events that affect glucose levels can greatly improve your understanding of what steps you need to take to improve your health.
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.

Each year in the U.S. diabetes results in the amputation of about 65,700 legs or feet. About 85% of those began with a diabetic foot ulcer. And for Dr. David Schwegman, the mission to educate people about the issue is personal.
His father, a diabetic, had a foot ulcer that resulted in the amputation of his left leg, which contributed to his death, his son said.
"He became a statistic," Schwegman said. "He was one of the 50% of people that died within five years after having an amputation."
Every time you roll your shopping cart into the supermarket, you’re making a decision that goes far beyond whether you’re going to have pork or pierogies for dinner. You’re actually choosing between being a victim and a victor. What you put in your cart goes a long way toward determining whether you’ll be compromised by diabetes or start controlling and eventually even beating it.
