I'm getting my Android smartphone tomorrow for the first time and I know that one of my mobile apps will be Diabetic Connect; other than the DC version for Android, does anyone have any suggestions in regards to safe, reliable and informative free or aid mobile apps that I can download for my Android device? I know that there was an episode on dLife in regards to certain mobile apps for download but I've completely forgot which one it was; any suggestion listed below via the comment box will be greatly appreciated since this is my very first smartphone that I've had the chance to own myself.

For my phone, I just use CalorieKing for carb counting. IPhones do have more apps, but android makes various glucose logs and ect.

I only use two apps. DC is one and an app for telling me what carbs are in the foods I may be eating, I got tired of looking the info up in the book the docs gave me plus I would always forget it.

I use OnTrack which is a free app thru the Play Store and I can enter BG readings according specific times of day (such as specific meals, sick, ect.) , also can record BP, A1C, Insulin, Weight, and also is very accurate on est. A1C. Love the app!

I have a droid phone and Diabetic Connect will not work on it even though I did what tech support said to do. I gave up and uninstalled it however, it works fine on my tablet and the tablet isn't a droid. I have tried other apps but find most too time consuming to use so I have uninstalled all of them. I can't stand having to search them for what I need. The only medical app I have on my phone is ICE (In Case of Emergency).
