About this app

App for managing diabetes, compatible with Abbott Freestyle Libre, Libre Pro, MiaoMiao, Bubble Mini and BluCon. Not compatible with Libre 2 and USA 14-days Libre sensor. It does not read Libre sensor on Wear OS!

Functionalities (only on smartphone):
-Memorize blood glucose levels
-Acquires glucose values from Abbott Freestyle Libre sensor without Abbott reader
-Memorize insulin units, carbohydrates and sport activities
-Remote Glucose Monitoring via Dropbox and Nightscout
-Compatible with Wear OS
-Continue glucose monitoring keeping the smarthpone in an armband positioned over sensor

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

This app is not approved by Abbott and there's no guarantee about the correctenss of glucose values read from the Abbott Freestyle Libre 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.

This seems to work well with one somewhat important exception; it appears to be inaccurate. When using the device that came with the sensor, the readings are almost always higher than with this app. The higher the blood sugar level, the higher the discrepancy between the two. For example, when this app says I have a level of 76 mg/dl, the reader device is only one point higher. When the app shows 135, the reader shows 150. I keep this in mind when using the app, which otherwise works flawlessly. It does, however, skew the statistics that the app offers, making them somewhat less reliable. If not for this problem, I would give it all 5 stars.
