I am starting my search for a new tablet and apps that would help me keep a record of my diabetes progress. I have heard a lot about the kindle's. Which tablets are the best and which apps would be best to use. I will be getting something when we get our income tax back which is usually the end of February or first of March.

I have a Kindle Fire and love it! I am not too familiar with many others. The Samsung tablets are good too.

I use a Kindle Fire tablet as well, and love it, but not sure about apps for diabetes management either. For that I use my smart phone, I have an android and I have downloaded a few apps, the one I like best is mySugr which I know is also one you can get on the internet, so I imagine you can get it on Kindle as well. It is free and has all kinds of interesting things to manage I believe you can keep track of diet stuff, but I'm not positive, I've never tried, I just do BG on it. Best of health. Heidi

Hi Bre! I have a Kindle Fire tablet and I love it. I hadn't thought about an app for D management, but now i think I will look into it. I t is the best I have tryed. I had a few others, but they were low end and not very good. For the money I think The Kindle is a good buy. I want to upgrade in the next year or so, because I think the newer ones have a longer battery life. Always want more battery power. LOL

The old computer adage is "buy the hardware based on the software you want to run".
In other words …the question would be what software (apps) is best for doing the things you want to do.
Based on that find the hardware (tablet) that runs that software.

I use the iDiabetes app for the iPad, it includes a daily log and allows you to log as many times per day as you want, goals, graphs, reports, medication reminder and nutrition preferences and a lot more useful tools including a discussion forum. You can also download the Kindle app and place it on your iPad if you are also considering that format.
