Abstract
This chapter analyses the current state of the art in the field of mobile apps for managing diabetes. It then focuses on the problems that have prevented these apps from reaching a broad audience. A novel approach for using mobile technologies to remotely manage the health status of older adults with diabetes, which can be easily extended to other chronic conditions, is proposed. The chapter presents a novel approach for managing diabetes in older people, shifting the focus from symptoms and biometric parameters to function improvement and well?being enhancement. The widespread adoption of mobile devices and the rapid advances in information and communication technology (ICT) provide a great opportunity for developing systems and apps for empowering citizens to take better care of their own health status. Another relevant factor that may compromise the mainstream use of these apps is that, in most cases, they are not based on clinical standards.
