It is also worth checking out Glooko, a startup from Palo Alto. They have a logbook product that runs on iOS (the grapevine tells me Android is under development) and also has a web site it can sync with.

The biggest factor in blood sugar rises is what and how much you eat, so logbooks and software can help you track the correlation. (Exercise is the biggest factor in lowering blood sugar.)
