Kiyoshi Button

Managing blood sugar around the clock is a daunting task for many. Our aim with the new button is to offer users a brief respite and encouragement during their challenging days.

Drawing inspiration from concepts like the “Easy Buttons” (?) and Stuart Smalley’s “Daily Affirmations” (?), the “Kiyoshi” button, when pressed, plays a reassuring chorus of “You got this.”

He sports a CGM on his left arm!

A lot silly, a bit addictive!!

Version 1.4 public beta users:

You can download the public beta from here: (Not yet)

This version contains a background feature not available from the versions you can download from the AppStore.

When “Background” is enabled by you in the settings, it will attempt to “shugga” whenever the operating system allows the app to announce it while the app is in the background.

You can set the minimum interval this is allowed to happen as well – in case the operating system is generous that moment.
