Developers need to look into this

I would give this app five stars but it keeps telling me alarms are unavailable! Bluetooth is on, I’ve had my phone on me all day. I’ve had this sensor not long and the app has notified me multiple times that alarms are unavailable scan sensor.🙄☹️ Other than that I must say scanning my arm and having a blood test the readings are very accurate.

1/7/22 (Update) finally had one that works properly with the alarms. Just popped in another one last night and yet again it’s giving alarm signal loss. customer service won’t do much other than replace it but the same issue happens again and again I’m sick of replacing them. might change to a different brand because clearly this brand is faulty!

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.

Pretty good

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.

Thank you for your comment. Try changing the Notifications sound volume in your Settings menu or putting your phone into vibrate mode. If you need further help, please contact us at 1800 801 478. Thank you.
