New version of Diabetes UK Tracker app launched

Diabetes UK has announced the launch of an Android version of its Diabetes Tracker App. It has been designed to help with diabetes self-management, by a team including people with diabetes, clinical specialists and user experience professionals.

It allows users to log and track a range of vital data, including blood glucose levels, insulin and carbohydrates, to share it with their healthcare professionals and visualise their results across days and weeks.

The iPhone version of the app, which appeared in September 2011, has been downloaded nearly 30,000 times, and went on to win a Third Sector Excellence Award in September 2012.

New features

The Android version introduces new features, in response to user demand:

  • In addition to the original social media sharing options, users can now export their saved data in comma-separated value (CSV) format in a spreadsheet, by email
  • An interactive checklist allows users to keep track of the diabetes healthcare checks and standards they should receive. The checklist explains the care they are entitled to, and lets them record when these checks have been made and set reminders for future annual checks.

These new features have also been incorporated in an updated version of the iPhone app, which has been submitted to the App Store and will be available as soon as Apple have approved it.
