Android App
Android App To enter/modify/add data to a specific column just tap at the column of your choice. Then the single data mask can scroll to any field you wish. On the right side you can add, modify or delete every entry. Click on save in the upper right corner when you are done.

To enter new data with the current time just click at the plus button at the top of the logbook view. Please note, that this entry uses the current time AND the same date of the displayed day!

Android App You also can use your own datatypes in the app to track anything you can imagine. Please do this as follows:
  • 1. Add a datatype with the PC version (Menu 'Diabetesprofile ->Datentypes ->Add'; Press the F1-Key to get help there)
  • 2. Synchronize your PC version with 'SiDiary Online'

Alternative you can add datatypes even without the PC version, if you open in 'SiDiary Online' in the section 'Data' the menu 'Datentypes' and click on 'Add'.

  • 3. Synchronize your app with 'SiDiary Online'
  • 4. Activate the selected datatype with the button 'More ->Settings ->Programsettings'
  • 5. If necessary re-start the app
Now you can enter the values for your datatype in the single data mask as shown on the left
Android App If you want to use the bolus calculator please press the appropriate line.
Once you have accepted the notes about the bolus calculator you can enter your appropriate values to calculate your bolus dose.
If you have entered in SiDiary Online your carb- and correction factors and then synced the app with SiDiary Online these factors are also known in the bolus calculator and used automatically. Otherwise, you can enter all this data manually here.

By clicking the Accept button in the upper right corner you can transfer the result directly to your logbook.
Please note: The result of the bolus calculation will not be rounded. We have deliberately refrained it since it depends on the situation, if it should be round up or down. This decision cannot been made by the app for you.

Some notes/hints:

  • In the events and in sport the app will store you entry in a list. So the next time you will enter the same you can simply select it from this list.
  • The weight will be saved once a day. So it’s possible that you see a weight in in the entry mask which you have entered previously on that day.
  • The same as for weight is for remarks: one field for a day. To assign a remark to a particular column, it is therefore advisable also tracking the time for that remark.
