Turning real-time health data into engaging experiences
What we believe in
Adding joy in life with diabetes
Even though diabetes is a serious condition, daily life with diabetes does not have to be. We want to design rewarding, user-friendly and engaging experiences for people with diabetes so they stay healthier and can have as stable blood glucose as possible.
Setting own targets
Keeping blood glucose stable is hard. We want to encourage and help people to take small steps towards better blood glucose management. Therefore you can set your own daily targets in Happy Bob and get rewarded when own targets are met.
Being Data Driven
“What can’t be measured, can’t be improved” is especially true with diabetes. We leverage the real-time CGM and exercise data to turn the daily diabetes management into positive and motivating experiences.
Who we are
We are a small group of people with different backgrounds from gaming to diabetes research, who all have been touched by diabetes and how overwhelming life with diabetes can be. We strive to build Happy Bob into an experience that turns daily diabetes management into a rewarding and positive experience.
Positive approach motivates in self-care
“For me it’s fun for the comments or see how many stars I can get each day and seeing myself score points to stay in my range. Happy Bob helps to take a step back and remind myself not to take it all seriously – I’m after all not a pancreas and doing the best I can.”
Changed my outlook on this whole disease
“I just wanted to let you know that I simply love Happy Bob!!! I have him set to Snarky Bob and it’s totally changed my outlook on this whole disease!<br /> <br /> I’ve been a Type 1 diabetic for 35 years now and never has trying to keep my blood sugars in range been so much fun! Thank you so much for this!”
Manage diabetes the fun way
“I LOVE THIS APP! IT IS THE BEST AND I LOVE ALL THE EXTENSIONS! This is so fun and a great way to manage diabetes the fun way!”
The best thing to happen to my diabetes
“Even the snappy comments motivate me to see how fast I can get my blood sugar down and even though the stars do absolutely nothing, it’s still motivating to try and reach the daily goal. And being able to set different goal levels is awesome! Overall, this app is amazing. Switching between setting is easy and I’ve had no problems trying to communicate with my Dexcom. 1000/10, everyone struggling with diabetes management or feeling alone or unheard with disease NEEDS this app!!”
“So much fun! Makes checking your sugar more then a chore! 💝”
“As a 51 year old diabetic I absolutely love this app. It is encouraging and helps you maintain a good number with a fun little Bob.”
Helping with diabetes
“I love this App it helps me with my blood sugar and his comments make me laugh, when my blood sugar is high or low. I can tell this game was made to help people with there diabetes and the creator has experience with dealing with diabetes.”
Made me Happy Michelle!
“I just love this app so much! It’s almost a competition who can outdo the other people who have the app! It encourages us to eat right and everything that comes with it to ensure a good BG. Thanks for making this fun!”
Best diabetes management app
“Other diabetes management apps are boring and can be anxiety-inducing. Happy Bob is exciting and feels more like a game than an app to help monitor a disease. The app is easy to set up and connect, it’s star system motivates and rewards, and snarky Bob is hilarious. I prefer Happy Bob hands down to similar apps that I’ve used in the past.”
Best diabetes management app
“I absolutely love this app. I cannot overstate how important it is to have encouragement when you're feeling rubbish, or entertainment (snarky mode) when you're feeling up to it, when you're dealing with constant testing. It is amazing how your brain can interpret a cold, hard number and make you feel like a failure, really ruin your mood, but this provides the comic relief or kindness needed to keep me sane. Thank you so much to the developers!”
Love trying to earn stars
“My 9 year old LOVES snarky Bob! She loves trying to earn stars. Thank you for adding a little fun into Type 1 monitoring.”
Best thing since CGMs
“Best thing ever since they invented cgms. Makes me laugh even when the times are rough. Wish i had this 28 years ago when i got sick. Brighter days”
“Happy, snarky and sarcastic commentary turns your CGM into a cool little Diabetes companion”
Gamification is brilliant
“Thank you so much for making this app! It's super clever and fun. Gamification of glucose levels is brilliant! I love that there are multiple personalities to pick from. As someone who had had this stupid disease for 20 years, I appreciate this so so so so so much. ”
With his help I can keep better track of my sugars and for the times I forget to eat or bolus he is always there to remind you of your numbers.shamrockcutie2004
