Unreliable after last update I think we would like more

I have used the libre now for about 18 months and have enjoyed it immensely. Personally I have not updated to IOS 14 yet. But since last updated libre app it is unreliable. Is slow. Does not always vibrate. Sometimes have to cancel and rescan. It still scans but it’s not what it used to be. Previously app was fast and 100% reliable on scan.

I have a lot of other features that I would like to see to. The app is to help improve glucose management but would be pleasant to have an app that contained more proactive options rather than reactive that learnt my issues with diabetes and adapted to my issues to help me better manage my diabetes. Also a nicer way to enter extraneous information such as insulin injections and times and carbohydrates. Current implementation is not nice to enter or view this info or how it affects my glucose graphs. Nor does it suggest how minor changes could dramatically improve my life. Just thoughts for future developments.

Would be great to able see more.

Been using the app for nearly a year. Would be great to be able to view Daily Graphs and Last 24 hours in landscape. I know you can view graphs landscape via LibreView. Possibly even a feature which allows you to select a point on the graph where you didn’t scan to pin point when an event occurred, in the Logbook Detail. The sensor is collecting data throughout the day to create the charts, so would be amazing to see that. Also, pinch or zoom feature so you can look close to see more detail at one point. I know you briefly get this when you scan, but being able to do this in Daily Graph and Last 24 Hours anytime would be great. Sometimes it’s quite difficult to see exactly what time an event happened due to the only 3 hours being displayed on the horizontal and in 3s on the vertical. These would be great additions as I use the data religiously to determine what affects carbs had on my levels and sometimes identifying between point where a scan wasn’t performed is difficult. You have to draw an invisible line and kind of guess what the reading was or points where scans weren’t performed. Did my levels spike at 7:10pm or 7:20pm or 7:30pm?

Thanks for the suggestions. We are continuing to improve the app and we will look in to this.

The app I've been waiting for. Almost perfect

I've been waiting for this app since before apple even allowed NFC access to developers! A brilliant app and much better than carrying around another device in your pocket which can only do one thing. I do think it's missing a few little bits that should demonstrate the benefit to this over the reader device. Namely healthkit integration and a quick access button (maybe in the widget screen?). Imagine this feeding into healthkit along with your food entries via other apps and seeing all that info together... Really powerful stuff. I appreciate the team getting this app out when they could but I hope they follow with an update with these extras as I know from experience adding to healthkit is fairly quick and easy

Update: just had to restore my phone from a back up and realised that I have lost all my Libre data! Devastating! This app needs to use iCloud or something 😫

Update 2: seems that updates are very slow, as I had feared would be the case. Not sure if there is a dedicated team looking after this app, but it doesn’t feel like this is the case. Making full use of iOS could make this even more life changing. HealthKit support (so data can’t be lost!), widget ready for iOS 14 so you can see stats on your home screen would be very powerful in managing this condition.
Maybe consider open sourcing this if dedicating the resources is too tricky!
