Many of us have been using the Libre for some time, but someone has, at last, created what seems to be a credible app for using it on an Android phone. The Glimp software can be found here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=it.ct.glicemia
It seems to need activating with the Libre reader, but then it reads the raw data without doing any interpolation or use of any predictive algorithms. This means that it also reads immediately after the sensor is activated (unlike the Libre reader which takes an hour to settle in) and also continues to read beyond the 14 day limitation imposed by Abbott via the Libre Scanner. This is one of the screenshots from Google Play store:
Now it’s not clear how good the readings are beyond 14 days and based on my recent experiences of the sensors, I wonder whether that data will be of any use at all, however, a step in extending the Libre sensor life can’t be a bad thing, so I’ll be getting my old NFC enabled Android phone out and giving this a go later today or tomorrow.
An update: I used Glimp for 24 hours. At the end of that period, my sensor died. It stopped providing readings. It is also a new Libre reader. I’ve never had a sensor do this before, so I can’t conclusively say that Glimp is the reason that it died. I’ve heard anecdotally that others have seen sensors die after use with Glimp, but unless I risk another sensor, the only advice I can give is that if you are using a new sensor, you might want to consider that there is a risk that Glimp can kill a sensor.
