The Diabetes Management App from Dario Launches in Multiple Countries

Dario is a cloud-based health management platform for mobiles that can be used for monitoring diabetes and blood glucose in individuals. This app was made available by LabStyle Innovations Corp. on a complimentary basis for iOS devices in the US. However, with the success of this app and in accordance with the worldwide roll-out plans of LabStyle, Dario is now available for European and Australian users as well. On December 12, 2013, this complimentary app was made available to iOS users in the U.K, Australia and New Zealand.

The Dario app can be used for the management of diabetes irrespective of which monitoring device they are using. The app allows users to enter their statistics into the app manually in a simple and easy format. In addition, in the coming weeks, the company will integrate the app with the Dario glucose monitoring device and website application, making the entire process completely automated, simple and error-free.

 

The app is designed to make life easier for diabetes patients, allowing them to manage everything between monitoring and therapy through a single mobile app. With the help of this mobile app, people with diabetes will be able to check their blood sugar levels easily and in real-time using their smartphone. The app also provides them with useful views and insights regarding what they should be doing next to control their situation.

While the app is currently available on iOS only, it will soon be introduced on Android devices as well. However, the software is completely integrated with the pocket-sized monitoring device of Dario, which comes with strips, lancets and a meter to connect it with your phone. A website application for this app is also available to enable patients, medical professionals and caregivers to access and track information and ultimately make proactive interventions in emergency situations. In the coming time period, the app will be made commercially available and it will be allowed to integrate with other diabetes devices and procedures like insulin delivery.

Appsee helps mobile developers keep their users happy

 

Appsee is a comprehensive analytics tool that is built within an app designed for iOS. It provides developers with analytics to measure the experience of mobile app users. The platform, which was formerly known as UserVOD, is now launching a new one that is completely redesigned, fully-stocked, and renamed to match its new casual structure.

 

Appsee offers mobile developers a number of useful features that can help them increase and monitor user engagement and retention. Some of the many features offered by this service include in-app analytics, UI analysis, single session recording and tracking, automatic events, and touch heatmaps.  By using these analytics, developers can optimize the experience of app users, resulting in higher app ratings and improved performance metrics.

A number of app development companies use traditional tracking metrics such as number of daily users and downloads to analyze the performance of their apps. However, it is important to understand what these figures actually mean in order to use the results of these metrics in an optimized way. As many analytical platforms offer only a narrow set of tools for app analysis, it is difficult to understand user behavior in a standardized way. Developers choose to manually select which measures should be checked since many platforms don’t offer automatic identifying and tracking system.

Appsee offers a completely new and innovative approach for mobile app developers to help them understand user behavior and experiences. The platform uses an entire suite of analytical tools that track and measure experience metrics in detailed and comprehensive ways. A number of famous apps like My Supermarket, Onavo, and British Gas use Appsee for handling analytics due to its intuitive and easy-to-use design and attractive visual reports. The developers can easily add this in-app analytical platform to their own using a single-line code and Appsee SDK. Once the system is integrated to your app, it will track every gesture of your user and store it for analysis.

To provide better accessibility to developers, a fully integrated online dashboard is made available, through which they can get reports regarding multiple sessions or a single experience at a time. The platform also allows you to filter the stored sessions across multiple variables and filters, some of them being first time users, crash sessions and churned users. After identifying a single point of interest, developers can specifically track that with the help of these filters. Some of the additional features offered by Appsee include detection of UI and usability problems along with fixing suggestions and optional user video recording for a specified percentage of the session.

Keep a Track on Your Health and Well-Being with Angel’s Technology

Health and well-being are becoming a major concern for people nowadays. This is why they keep looking for convenient ways for keeping a track on these factors on their own. Responding to this need, a lot of new technologies have been introduced to the market, some of which are truly remarkable. A multitude of health-tracking technologies allow people to track their health vitals and maintain a complete record of them on the cloud-based integrated web applications they offer. Among these technologies, the most common thing you can find is health bands.

It seems like a new health or fitness band is introduced to the market every other week without a fail. All of these bands, however, have a limited measuring capability. They allow you to track only a single metric like your heart rate or number of steps and fail to go beyond their core functionality. Therefore none of these bands offers a complete solution that can help you monitor all the aspects of your health at the same time. So, while you get to monitor one aspect with complete accuracy and precision, you remain completely unaware about the others.

To solve this major issue, Angel has introduced its latest technology into the market. It is designed like any other health wristband, but it offers you much more in functionality. The device is designed to give you a complete picture of your health, measuring a multitude of metrics through this single band. To cover the costs of the device’s first production effort, a funding campaign was set up by Angel on Indiegogo. The company has almost reached its goal of $100,000 and is planning to put the band into production really soon.

This new innovative health band by Angel combines four different sensors for temperature, movement, optics and acoustics. Using these sensors, the device allows you to monitor factors like pulse, activity level, body temperature and blood oxygen level. The regular tracking and measurement of these metrics will allow you to deal with a lot of complex medical and health challenges in a much better way. You can deal with medical challenges like:

  • Detecting irregularities in the heart rate to provide an early warning about cardiovascular heart condition
  • Measuring the ovulation cycle and determining the best time to conceive
  • Providing doctors with data on demand using remote, on-line connectivity systems
  • Analyzing vital signs and motions during sleep

 

All this information can be made available to you through multiple apps and web-based platforms on your smartphones, tablets, laptops, and even your treadmill after a short time.

Unlike other bands that only allow you to measure a single health metric, this new technology by Angel goes far beyond that. Using Bluetooth Low Energy profiles, the technology is made compatible with major fitness apps including Wahoo Fitness, Strava, RunKeeper and Endomondo. So, if you are looking for a comprehensive health and well-being tracking device, this innovative health and fitness band by Angel is definitely designed for you.
