Notes for use with Abbott Freestyle Libre and smartphone:
-You can use Glimp togheter with Abbott Freestyle Libre reader
-Verify that your mobile has NFC support and that NFC is enabled
-Keep Glimp open on the graph form
-Move back of mobile very near to the sensor
-Two short vibrations means reading OK
-One long vibration means error in reading
-No vibration means NFC missing or not active, or mobile too far from sensor
-New sensors must be initialized with Abbott reader or "Glimp S" app before using them with Glimp
-With Glimp you don't have to wait one hour to start using a new sensor
-Glimp don't stop reading from sensor after expiry date, but don't guarantee accuracy of data. Use the sensor data at your own risk!
-Abbott Freestyle Libre Reader processes the sensor measurements and displays glucose values based on statistics, instead Glimp records and displays glucose values as they are read by the sensor

UPDATE: avoid updating to V4.18.18. Cannot calibrate results anymore. I cannot say enough good things about this app, without this app the sensors where useless. When I first started using the sensors, the reading where off by a large marging, sometimes even up to 80 points. I had no way of telling the official app that the readings were off. With this app I am able to calibrate it using a couple of readings from my Bayer contour meter.

I've tried this with several sensors (all 14-day Libre sensors) on my Samsung 9+. I have no difficulty reading the sensors with the Freestyle Reader, but Glimp consistently generates an error when attempting to read the sensor. "Error in sensor data: No coherent data. Please read again the sensor." I've tried every possible configuration option based on the Glimp manual, but have had no luck. I have not found a way to request support.

Dear Stephen. Abbott encrypted new 14-days sensor data to avoid external apps reading sensor :-( This is an Abbott decision so I kindly ask you to complain Abbott.

I absolutely love Glimp but am really sad that it won't work with the 14 day sensors sold in the US. Glimp is the only thing that made me be able to use Libre, as without Glimp, Libre is too inaccurate for me to use, and the graph on the reader is pretty useless. The graph on Glimp is fantastic and the amount of info it provides can't be beat. The fact that the graph is interactive and can give you exact readings for any time in the past is invaluable, and the ability to zoom it to make it easier to get the info in wonderful. Being able to calibrate it when needed makes it always accurate, which is the most important thing in any kind of meter, and the statistics it gives are wonderful too, in fact, everything about it is wonderful. I love everything about Glimp and using it makes me love using Libre. Once I am out of the 10 day sensors I won't be able to use it, therefore I won't be able to use Libre since it is too inaccurate without using Glimp and I find that very upsetting. I am hoping that the developers of Glimp will soon find a way to make Glimp work with the 14 day sensors sold in the US so I, and many others who love it, can continue to use Libre and this wonderful app. The only problem I have with this app, aside from it not working for the 14 day sensors sold in the US, is the latest version takes much longer for it to give a vibration when scanning the sensor and even longer to get that second vibration when scanning the sensor than it ever did before. I have been using Glimp for almost 2 years and no other version has done this, but as long as it keeps scanning and working, I can live with it, even though I liked the way scanning worked in previous versions better. I wish I could figure out how to go back to the previous version without uninstalling the new one which would delete all my old readings. To the developers of Glimp, thank you so very much for having provided such a wonderful and helpful app to make the lives of diabetics so much easier. Please keep working on getting it working for the 14 day sensors sold in the US. I, and many others, will be very happy and grateful if you can make it work for the 14 day sensors sold in the US. Thank you again for your wonderful app and all of your hard work in providing this app for us.
