    @CHERYAA Glimp can read Libre sensor directly, or does it need BluCon or MisoMiao Add-ons?

    A bit of a read with nfc in the phone glimp can read the sensors.
    I've been using glimp for 2 years its been good...

    The Miaomiao and bluecon makes glimp into proper COM.

    Any phone with Bluetooth would pair up with them..

    I've just added the Miaomiao to mine im still getting the settings right (glimp polls it when it wants a reading).

    Its the blood corrections that make it better.

    Here is the type of App that I think would work well.

    Simple Screen with only three type of inputs.

    Glucose Reading, Insulin, and food.

    The Glucose Reading would presumably have a Date and Time and come from the Sensor.
    The input fields for Insulin would be simply how many units of one or more type (types stored with default)
    The food entry would be a drop down list of things you normally eat.
    At breakfast time, the list might by cereals, eggs/meat/potato, Waffle, pancakes etc.
    Lunch would be a list of your favorites in order of must likely usage.
    Dinner, the same.

    A chart could be drawn with the sensor readings, and possibly smoothed.
    On the chart it would show a dot where insulin was taken, and another dot where food was consumed.
    Touch the dot and it would show the details.

    For those that would like a much simpler process and typically each the same type of food, this would make the analysis a bit clearer. Why over complicate the process?
