DBS_Blog_DTOP_Belowtitle_336x280

Applications make your life easier. In a matter of seconds,  you can find the quickest route to a great restaurant, or vintage clothing store. You can find out which actor played Dracula in the 1931 movie.  A laugh, or a smile, is a thumb tap away. Etc.

It’s no different when it comes to diabetes. Literally, there are dozens of apps out there that are centered around the disease, and, to tell you the truth, that number can be overwhelming.

What we’ve done is narrow that number down to eight. Here, and on the pages that follow, you’ll find the apps we feel will help you the most. Enjoy! Oh, and please do take note of anything with a * next to it: it means that we’ve pegged the app as a MUST DOWNLOAD.
