Well there's a lot to check out here. Thanks for the thread and the links.

I did a search a while ago too. I was specifically interested in Open Source, or Freeware, and whilst I did come up with a lot, the one I downloaded and installed is called cron-o-meter. It's download URL is CRON-O-Meter

It looks like it is ideal for people exercising, dieting, and those who have diabetes and/or hypertension. And they have Windoze, Linux, and Mac versions too. Yep, it's free! Like all good things

But to be honest, I haven't used it at all. Reason is I am trying to wean myself off of sitting behind the computer all day. It's that sedentary life-style which made me put on the kilo's in the first place, which led to hypertension, and now the D Dx.

So instead I use a plain spiral bound book, and a supplementary book the CDE has given me [she only wants to know the BG readings], and my spiral bound record's are cluttered with other measurements including BG, BP, Weight, Waist Circum., Food's I have eaten at mealtimes, food weights, day's temperature, etc.. Whenever I need to chart something I just open up Calc of Open Office. Also Open Source and free, and better charts than MS Excel 2010 Beta.

I thought I would follow up on my earlier post. I now have the Google Nexus One android based phone. The phone is really great btw.

The ontrack software I mentioned before is available through the Android Market app and is free. I believe it will work on any Android based phone.

The software does the basics of collecting sugar, food, medication, exercise and weight info. Then you can display it in a variety of graphs and reports. Its all the essential data collecting and reporting that I need.

Having it on my phone has made a real difference in my control. I'd even call it fun.

I realize this is an old thread...

I'm a Linux(Debian) user as well. I have not found a suitable package to replace the app that came with my OneTouch meter. What I ended up doing is using Sun's VirtualBox, load Windows on the Vbox and run the meter through the virtual machine. Works pretty good so far.

But I'm always looking for something that I can run directly in Linux instead of my W2k Vbox.

I'm another Mac user here. I use Diabetes Logbook X to track my blood sugar, carbs, etc. It will track dosages of insulin, and all the usual stuff. I just print out one of the reports for my doc when I go. There is a Palm app that integrates with it. (that's how long I have been using it!)

On my iPhone/iPad I have Wavesense. I really haven't gotten into using it, but have continued to use my trusty old Diabetes Logbook X.

Thanks. I found this thread while searching for Linux meter software. I haven't found an out-of-the-box replacement for the OneTouch software, but I have a work around.

I've been looking for software for my android phone (Nexus S) which lists nutritional info, and it would be especially good to find something that has Canadian restaurants. Anyone using something like this?

As for tracking, I agree with previous posters that the OnTrack for Android is great. It has been very useful to easily email my RN each day as we work out my lantus/apidra doses.
