Dribbble, I need your help! I'm a type 1 diabetic who has struggled to manage my disease for years. I've tried countless journal applications to help me track and manage my health, but have always grown irritated by clumsy interfaces and slow input speeds. My disease takes up so much of my time already, I didn't want to spend my life entering data.
Which is why I've started a Kickstarter campaign to build an iPhone application to help diabetics. It's fast. And more importantly, it's intelligent. It learns from my medication habits, making adding entries take seconds rather than minutes.
I need your help to spread the word and to fund the campaign. Even if you're not diabetic, it's likely you know someone who's affected. No pledge or amount is too small. Help me prove that good UI and thoughtful UX can help improve peoples lives.
The crazy thing is that if 7.5k people donated just £1 each the application could go on to help thousands of people!

I love this. You should team up with Novo nordisk.
Sorry to hear you're diabetic, but I pray you find all the luck in the world on your adventure creating this app!
good luck this is really great.
This looks great. Very noble of you to want to release the app free of charge.
Thanks guys. It's my hope that the design community finds the value in providing diabetics with a well designed application. Even if you're not diabetic, it's likely you know someone affected. Any pledge you can give would help. No amount is too small!
@Piet Aukeman I'm lucky enough to have a steady day job, so the project really isn't about making any money. I just want to put the best application I can out there, free of charge.
I've worked on a diabetes desktop app for a big healthcare company in the US, so I know they suck. Best of luck with the project, the Kickstarter-to-free app path is a great idea.
Why is the data in your screenshots so sparse? It be great to see what it looks like if it test two or three times a day.
Just watched the video on KS. The interaction and data entry process looks great.
You have my support. Looking forward to your app being fully realised. Good luck @Nial Giacomelli
I know of a big company that tried to create such an app with a 6 digits european budget and that is not even close to what you accomplished here. I should convince them to back your project !
I really hope your kickstarter will work and I'll definitely spread the word.
Any Android version one day ? :p
@Andrew Liebchen I'd be interested in talking to you about your experiences in the field! Thanks for the kind words
@Cam Macbeth Thank you! Very much appreciated
@Stéphanie ✿ Thank you for the kind words. The crazy thing is that if 7.5k people donated just £1 each the application could go on to help thousands of people!
As a fellow type 1 diabetic, like you, I've tried numerous apps and never found anything worth using. This looks great and I'm really looking forward to seeing more.
I am type-1, as well. All of the current apps lack a lot besides good design, so I wholeheartedly support this.
Not diabetic, but I love the idea and your design. I threw a few dollars your way - good luck on reaching your goal!
Backed! Good luck with the campaign Nial!
Best of luck with the campaign!

I offered Nial my skills to help him make this application even better. I'm currently working together with him redesigning the whole app to give it a personality and make it fun to use.
