Diabetes Apps are available on both iPhone and Android phones to assist in diabetes management
Apps typically log blood glucose readings – although some allow you to log carbs, food, medication, weight and more.
Diabetes apps tend to vary from being completely free up to just over £5.
Before delving into an app store on your iPad, iPod or iPhone – or the App Market on Android, have a think about how you’d like the app to help you.
Do you want an all singing, all dancing app, or do you need the app to serve one particular need? For example, do you only want to log your blood glucose readings – or would you also like a food and carbohydrate diary too?
A potential ‘pit trap’ of diabetes iPhone apps is that a number of them may only be compatible with US blood sugar measurement units
Be sure to check the descriptions and screenshots to see if the app gets the units right for you (mmol/L for UK, mg/dL for US).

Do you wish to have any of the following?
There are many more features available as well. Have a good look around the app store to see what is available.
A number of the paid for apps have a lite or trial version available for free, which are a good way to test whether you like the feel and ease of use of the app before buying the full version.
If you do not require more detail or the extra features, you may decide to stick with the lite version.
