In early April, Nokia greenlit a new diabetes app, MyGlucoHealth, for its Ovi app store -- now, the app's developer, Entra Health System announced that worldwide downloads for the free app total more than 150,000. The free MyGlucoHealth App allows Nokia handset users to upload and manage blood glucose readings using the MyGlucoHealth Wireless meter, however, it can also stand alone as a blood glucose tracking application. Entra confirmed to MobiHealthNews that while the number of downloads for the app is now greater than 150,000, not all of those users are using the company's wireless meter.
Interestingly, outside of the US, India, Saudi Arabia and other countries in the Middle East have shown the highest number of downloads and use of the application, John Hendel, Chairman of Entra Health Systems stated in a press release.
The strong response in Spain, Mexico and some South American countries has also encouraged the company to push to create a Spanish version of the app soon.
Within Europe, downloads of MyGlucoHealth's App has been especially strong in Italy, France, Germany and Great Britain, the company said. For APAC, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam were the countries that Entra highlighted in its release.
