    Pump is OK - Good size so doesn't get in the way. Pretty easy to use.
    Unfortunately the MyLife app is poor. Takes an age to connect (to the pump) so using the bolus calculator takes an age. This is fine if you don't need to calculate insulin onboard but otherwise not great. I chose the mylife YpsoPump as there were plans to integrate with Freestyle Libre and also allow the app to 'push' your dose to the pump - dates for these keep moving out though. Plus based on app experiences to date I can't imagine the app to pump bolus dosing would be great.
