About this app

The FreeStyle LibreLink app allows you to monitor your glucose with your phone. [1] Check your glucose by holding your phone near your FreeStyle Libre Sensor. The App is compatible with both 10-day and 14-day Sensors.

You can use the App to:

* Check your glucose with a painless scan, instead of a routine fingerstick [1]
* View your current glucose reading, trend arrow, and glucose history
* Add notes to track your food, insulin use, and exercise
* See glucose reports, including your Ambulatory Glucose Profile
* Connect to healthcare professionals with LibreView [2]

Compatibility may vary between phones and operating systems. Learn more about compatible phones at

If you would like to use both the FreeStyle Libre Reader and the App with the same Sensor, you need to start the Sensor with the Reader first and then scan with your phone. Note that FreeStyle LibreLink and Readers do not share data with each other. For complete information on a device, scan your Sensor every 8 hours with that device; otherwise, your reports will not include all your data.

FreeStyle LibreLink is intended for measuring glucose levels in people with diabetes when used with a FreeStyle Libre Sensor. For more information on how to use FreeStyle LibreLink, refer to the User’s Manual, which can be accessed through the App.

[1] If you are using the FreeStyle LibreLink app, you must also have access to a blood glucose monitoring system as the App does not provide one. Fingersticks are required for treatment decisions when you see the Check Blood Glucose symbol, when symptoms do not match system readings, when you suspect readings may be inaccurate, or when you experience symptoms that may be due to high or low blood glucose.

[2] Use of the FreeStyle LibreLink app requires registration with the LibreView system, which is provided by Abbott and Newyu, Inc.

The app works well enough. It gets the job done anyhow. Unfortunately, after updating my phone to Android 13, the notifications are kind of borked up. If you set the app to vibrate only, it doesn't do anything... No sound and no vibrate. If you set it to sound and vibrate, the vibrate works again but now, when I start a scan, it makes the loud sound that it used to only make if you tried scanning before opening the app on screen (out of words) Last time the app updated was early 2021...

Overall I really like this app and haven't had any of the problems like most of the people I describing. The only Main and major problem I have is that the center doesn't always stick to my skin. And I'm getting really tired of having to call customer service to get a new one. As far as scanning it I've never had a problem & readings are right on when compared to finger sticks. I see that new freestyle Libra 2&3 have alarms that I wish I had on this one.

The blood sugar readings are easy enough, and the sensor is easy to apply. I would give the app a much higher score if it had better UX. I can enter notes, but I can't see them a day later, nor can I download them for historical comparisons. Data is key. This is my 7th sensor. The lack of quality programming really bugs me for such an expensive item. Also, it would be nice if there was a larger bandage/sticky tape overlay I could use to secure the sensor to my arm during the final sensor days.
