How do you like them apps?

My husband is a programmer by trade.  In trying to figure out how to keep up with the times and also help the T1 community, he has taught himself how to make phone apps.  He built one for calculating insulin doses and is charging 99 cents with the proceeds going to help us obtain our goal of getting a diabetes alert dog. 

He would like to make more apps to help the T1 community in particular.  If there is anything that you would like to see in a phone app please leave a comment and let me know.  It doesn't have to be for T1, just anything that you have not seen out there but think is a great idea. For now he is only building for the android market. 

Here is his description and screen shots:   (keep it simple is his motto)  If you happen to use this app, feed back is welcome to be sent to   phone app in the subject

This app helps you determine the correct amount of insulin units for a particular meal. You can either just enter carbs and insulin-to-carb ratio, or you can also enter data to correct for high or low blood glucose levels. It is simple and easy to use.
My daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes last year and we needed a tool just like this, so I decided to make one and offer it to you. Proceeds from this app will go to help us get a Diabetes Alert Service Dog for my daughter.


  1. You guys are amazing. I will share on FB Heidi...and there anyway he can get Dexter to communicate with my Droid? I would love to see Joe's number while he skates? I don't even know if that is possible. I am an idiot when it comes to technology.

    Love ya!!!

  2. Love the idea... unfortunately the correction part wouldn't work for us since we still use diluted insulin to correct. That and I don't have a smart phone...

    That is so cool that your husband can design stuff like that.

  3. WOWZA! That's pretty dang cool :)

  4. Just told my husband about the app and he bought it. He has a droid, so it should be a big help!

  5. I'm so impressed! I have an iPhone. Would love to see him create iPhone apps too!
