An application designed for a specific device or operating system such as iPhone or Android is called a native app. It can only be used when you are using that device. There may be a desktop version or website that accompanies the app, but it is a separate product. D Sharp is unique because it uses a cutting edge technology platform (including jQuery Mobile, Node.js, MongoDB, HTML5 and cloud hosting) to deliver the same product to whichever networked device you choose. It is essentially a mobile website with the functionality of an app.
D Sharp currently allows for only one carb to insulin ratio setting. We are working on adding multiple ratios for bolus delivery and different basal rates. If using a pump, always use the pump’s suggested insulin dose.
We encourage you to use D Sharp with a diagnosis of pre-diabetes. Our interface allows the user to customize the app for their treatment. We’re less concerned with what type of diabetes you have and more about how you care for yourself.
We are working on a single log-in for multiple accounts. We know this is a feature that many parents and caregivers need. For now, it will require logging in and out for each person. Alternatively, if you have two devices you can designate one device for each person. For example, a mother could log her oldest child’s BGs on her phone and her youngest child’s BGs on her desktop.
Logging in on one device will not log you out from another one. In the future there will be an option of adding a view-only or caregiver account to an existing user account, which will allow the entries to be marked by who made them. For now, it’s best to let him know if you make any changes, if he’s the primary user.
The current app market has developed as a one-time purchase for a single device without the option of a subscription service. This is slowly changing as the market and new technologies are developed. D Sharp provides a service to our customers, which is best supported by a monthly fee. We prefer to think of it as an ongoing relationship with added features and tools to keep you on track such as the weekly email updates, blog articles and SMS reminders. Traditional device-based apps tend to sit on the phone unused unless there is an active community to support them.

D Sharp was designed to work best on modern Internet browsers. We ask that you take a few minutes to download one of the following free browsers in order to get the most out of D Sharp: Safari, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome
D Sharp does not have the ability to sync with any glucometers at the moment. We are looking into this feature and hope to offer a partner glucometer in the near future. While syncing does save some time, we also feel that you will gain a better understanding of the cause and effects of your BG readings, insulin or medication use through daily observations.
Who We Are
D Sharp Mobile Diabetes Management started out with a simple and very personal goal: create an app to make managing type 1 diabetes easier.
The simple request quickly grew into a cross-device, cross-platform web-based app for any type of diabetes. More
