Approved for use with FreeStyle Libre sensors
The FreeStyle LibreLink app is approved for use with the FreeStyle Libre sensor. Now you can check your glucose by scanning your sensor with your phone.
You can use the FreeStyle LibreLink app to:
* View your current glucose reading, trend arrow and glucose history
* Add notes to track your food, insulin use and exercise
* See reports, such as Time in Target and Daily Patterns
* Share your data with your doctor and family, with your permission
Compatibility may vary between phones and operating systems. Learn more about compatible phones at http://FreeStyleLibre.com.
USING YOUR APP AND READER WITH THE SAME SENSOR
If you’d like, you can use the FreeStyle LibreLink app and the reader with the same sensor. Start the sensor with the reader first, then scan with your phone.
Remember that the app and reader do not share data with each other. For complete information on a device, scan your sensor every eight hours with that device; otherwise, your reports will not include all your data. You can upload and view data from all of your devices on LibreView.com.
FreeStyle LibreLink is intended for measuring glucose levels in people with diabetes when used with a sensor. For more information on how to use FreeStyle LibreLink, refer to the User’s Manual, which can be accessed through the app. If you require a printed User’s Manual, contact Abbott Diabetes Care Customer Support.
Consult a healthcare professional to confirm if this product is right for you or if you have questions about how to use this product to make treatment decisions.

 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.
 Use of the FreeStyle LibreLink app and LibreLinkUp app require registration with the LibreView system, which is provided by Abbott and Newyu, Inc.
To resolve any technical or Customer Service issues that you are having with a FreeStyle Libre product, please contact FreeStyle Libre Customer Service directly.

You must click the ‘Check Glucose’ button every time you open the App.
I read my Freestyle sensor MANY times every day, and EVERY time I open the app I must press the check glucose button before performing the scan. It would make much more sense if the app defaulted to performing the scan, with the option to cancel out when you want to access other features.
Maybe 20% of the time you get errors scanning and you must repeat the process, which is weird, because that just never happens with any other Bluetooth LE devices that I use, nor with the freestyle handheld meter.
Otherwise, pretty good, and my preferred glucose meter out of the main players. Quite accurate, only a little lag.

Brilliant functionality, in need of iteration and UX improvement.
This technology is ground breaking for diabetes and pioneering getting this on apple. The app is functional, without getting into nitty gritty complaints the biggest UX issue I have is the graph axis’s have been designed with portrait mode in mind versus how diabetics usually interpret blood sugar graphs, including that from the LibreLink reader. Just because there’s real estate, it doesn’t mean it’s best used for the graph. The vertical axis is WAY over exaggerated and makes your peaks and troughs appear two to three time more severe then they do compared to how one normally views and interprets data or any normal graph layout. This causes an immense amount of anxiety and overreaction when testing using the app.
It’s to the point where I would rather carry the librelink then use the app, even though the integration and technology is excellent. This poor choice of design has had a large negative effect to myself and likely many others. Many overactive hypos or stress because graphs aren’t mean to be designed in portrait.
I founded a User Experience Design agency with a large team that designs for enterprise and understand how hard design can be. Perhaps it’s just me, but I doubt it. I would like your design team to make efforts to validate the graph design issues as I have seen other comments echoing the same issue. Thanks.

Thank you for the note - we will look in to this.
The colours that indicate in-range or out-of-range are a surprisingly helpful addition, compared to the reader. The sounds appear to be the same when there is a successful scan or an unsuccessful scan. This should be changed. Maybe these options could be configurable by the user (similar to the reader) so that, as a further option, you could set it to vibrate rather than make a sound. Which I think helps with privacy issues as some people don’t notice a vibrate but definitely notice a ‘beep’. The only real drawback is the inability to share the data between the reader and the app, so I’m trying to remember to scan both every 8 hours, as I find it easier to use the reader in the middle of the night or while driving (when you can’t touch your phone). So glad that Australians can now use this app.
