    I have just got my MiaoMiao and was wondering what app is the best to use along side it? I use a iPhone and Apple Watch if that helps.

    Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me :)

    Spike is the best on iOS, xdrip + or Glimp on Android.

    I have just been advised that Spike was pulled last month but brought back and you now have to pay £99 a year anyone know if this is correct?

    No, you can still do it on a free Apple account - the app itself is and always will be free. You just need to plug your phone into your computer once a week to “re-sign” the app, as it’s unofficial. Go to Spike-App.com and choose the “semi-manual” install method.

    I can’t get on with Android. I hate the user interface, I have to use one for my first responder volunteering, and it’s HORRIBLE. But that’s just me :) My teenage son loves his Android phone.

    That’s brilliant, you just made my day!! I have been looking forward to it arriving and using it, only to be told it would cost £99 a year I don’t mind plugging it in once a week thank you
