Before you say, there are plenty of them, here are the requirements

Lets me track multiple readings per meal cycle such as pre-meal, one-hour, two-hour and occasionally 3-5 hours

Accurately records and displays readings. For example, being able to pick a reading time like prelunch and watch the trends over 30 days

let me associate calories and carbohydrates with associated readings

Notification alerts so I won't forget to take the next reading

I've tried a few of them and they all fail for a variety of reasons. Most the time they fail because they only track the ADA substandard measurement protocol. I found one that would capture the glucose readings away want but didn't do the appropriate carbohydrates/calorie tracking or display. When you use multipoint per meal measurements, simple graphing is useless because you can't tell for low is the first thing the morning or your blood sugar dropping out the middle of the afternoon.

Looking forward to your feedback.

I was looking for such an app for my droid but have not found one. The ones I have tried didn't work. I use my log book. You can also get the BAYER USB meter that connects to your computer that will track it for you. The problem is it won't work with a phone.
