    I use MySugr.
    The app is great but you can upgrade to a paid version.

    I use the OneDrop app to record my blood glucose and insulin doses.

    I find MySugr to be the most user-friendly I've found. It's a little childish in places but is really easy to use and is customisable to your own particular target goals. It also predicts your next HbA1C which is cool, though haven't seen yet how accurate it is. I just use the free one and have found that to be fine.

    I use cronometer, which is great because you can tailor it to include any markers you want to track yourself and at he same time also record fitness, or foods, and make notes.
    its available as a pc download with a phone app as well,both work together seamlessly

    I have been using Diabetes Journal for the last 3½ years as it does everything I need a journal to do.

    Well worth the $2.00 I paid for the licence to get rid of the adverts.

    I use OneDrop too. Straight forward and no issues so far
