In February 2016, the research healthcare information newspaper reported the results of an evaluation of the application by an online survey. Pregnant women could use the enforcement 69.5 percent of the time.

Users have accepted the application and expressed the desire to use it in case of 5.5 to 7.0. A total of 4.3 patients out of  7.0 received 4.6 times the useful application of 7. Overall, the women ranked on the application 5.0 7.0 for the use.

From the results above, it was concluded that the application could be useful to control gestational diabetes. The results are less than stellar, but they are a good start.
