I've always liked lifescan meters as a meter, but I felt their software left a lot to be desired. For many years, I have used excel to make a paper template for manual logging of my results (see the sheet named manual). A few months ago I tried logging directly into excel a few different ways, but eventually went back to almost exactly how I did it on paper. Now with the data in excel you can get some nice analysis, trending, graphs, etc.
If you're unhappy with your meter software, would like to try something different, and especially if you're inclined to tweak things, give it a try. I hope you like it.
