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.

Recent headlines about cinnamon are the result of an accidental finding in a Maryland USDA research center. Incredibly, the catalyst was as American as good old apple pie, flavored with -- what else -- cinnamon. Scientists were testing the effects of various foods on blood sugar (glucose) levels. They expected the classic pie to have an adverse effect, but instead they found it actually helped lower blood glucose levels.
The researchers then took their surprising discovery and tested it in a small 60 patient study conducted in Pakistan, reporting in the journal Diabetes Care. All the patients had been treated for type 2, adult onset diabetes for several years and were taking anti-diabetic drugs to increase their insulin output. But they were not yet taking insulin to help process their blood glucose. The subjects were given small doses of cinnamon ranging from as little as a quarter teaspoon to less than 2 teaspoons a day for 40 days.
