Gem, the function to remember passwords is usually implemented on the client i.e your PC or phone. web browsers have an option to remember passwords that you can use to achieve this function. in internet explorer you can enable it under tools->internet options, go to the content tab and clikc on the 'auto complete' settings button. here you can enable the remembering of passwords. In firefox is usually asks you in a bar below the top menu bar if you want to remember a password. Of course being involved in IT security I would never do this but I'm paranoid ;-(

With regard to the mobile site layout issue of carb values can you try to describe what it looks like ? On the HTC TYTN II I had it worked ok and that should be a similiar screen to yours, however I have never played with a HTC Touch. We will always try to fix any issues if they are reported.

Thanks for your reply.

Yes I have seen the save password feature pop up in google chrome.... but I am also reluctant to do this for any site!

With the carb counter on my phone, it is readable but what happens is the carb value drops to the next line, rather than being on the same line as the other details (I hope this makes sense!) But its no big problem - its still usable and so good when you are on the go!

thanks

Hi Alex,

What phone do you have? We're currently working on an iPhone app which contains a diary and carb list.

Thanks,

Simon

Hi Simon,
I have an Iphone 4, I looked about and found a great app called DiabetesDiary which is really useful. An app with a diary along with a carb list would be really handy.

Thanks,

Alex

I've just finished the DAFNE course and used the iphone app in conjunction with the paper diary during the sessions. Just want to say how brilliant both the app and the mobile version of the site are working for me.

It would be really handy to have a sick day rules tab in the app, especially if it can help with calculating the tdd! If you're not well, maths gets harder ;-)

I did find a little typo in the carbs directory in the app, made me smile to see a Pot NODDLE :-)

Hi ytyynycefn,

Thanks for your feedback on the app, just so you know there is a dedicated thread on the Site Development forum for requesting new features in the iPhone app.

On the subject of sick day rules, we are unfortunately allowed to publish any DAFNE-specific info in the app, as on the app store it is accessible to people who haven't taken the course yet. This will stop us from publishing the rules in the app - though if you are a verified DAFNE Graduate (which you aren't yet - did your DAFNE Educator team give you an invitiation flyer?) you can get the handbook on the mobile version of the site which is formatted for display on small screens such as the iPhone.

The app currently shows your recent average TDD's - so what I can do it add percentage calculation to this to help you implement the sick day rules - how does this sound?

Simon

Thanks so much, Simon, a percentage doozit sounds great. I've "graduated" on here now too so thanks for pointing that out! I'll bookmark the sick day rules too, this site could literally prove to be a lifesaver :-)

Hi,
I was wondering if a possibility of adding your own sections within the target area could be a consideration in the new release. This can be useful when consuming a meal before doing sports, as I reduce my ratio by half before playing sports. This generally at breakfast and evening meals.
Thanks
