Both xdrip+ and AndroidAPS do BG predictions based on IOB and carbs on board. Android APS predictions are based on a lot of stuff (Total IOB, COB, insulin sensitivity adjustment). xdrip+ only has a basic prediction based on Bolus insulin IOB and COB. I defintiely like AndriodAPS predictions better, but when I started with xdrip+ the predictions were somewhat useful.
