This paper aims to present the development and testing of a mobile application was designed to assist the diabetic more fully in self-knowledge, in learning the disease and in the conscious choice of food. The procedure for the development consisted of: survey and analysis of mobile applications related to diabetes; application of a questionnaire to the target audience; definition of functionalities and information architecture; graphic interface prototyping; application development; usability testing. This work resulted in the Querida Diabetes (Dear Diabetes) application, which includes the essential functionalities for better diabetes control, presenting an innovative and intuitive interface.
