The LinkBluCon app can be used with BluCon (TransAm or NightRider) with Abbott's FreeStyle Libre sensor to get near real-time glucose trends.
Type 1 and Type 2 diabetic patients can use this app to connect their iPhone to a BluCon device to read the Freestyle Libre sensor every 5 minutes. Readings are available to the user through a user-friendly and intuitive GUI. This relieves the user from having to scan their sensor every 5 minutes.
LinkBluCon connects to BluCon over a Bluetooth connection to display glucose trends. It also provides a logbook to view past readings. No sign-up is required.
LinkBlucon app can share the glucose readings with the healthKit by enabling the option in settings. User can see his glucose levels in healthKit.

Please note that a fingerprick test using a blood glucose meter is required during times of rapidly changing glucose levels when interstitial fluid glucose levels may not accurately reflect blood glucose levels or if hypoglycemia or impending hypoglycemia is reported by the LinkBluCon app or when symptoms do not match the LinkBluCon app readings.
This app is not approved by Abbott and there's no guarantee about the correctness of glucose values read from the Abbott Freestyle Libre sensor.

No Health Sync?
From what I can tell this won’t sync with the iOS health app.
Doing so would enable a number of features (like being able to display current blood sugar on the apple watch), so it would seem like a pretty big feature omission.

This is mainly a winner!
I have the NightRider waterproof model. While it is a bit bulky (thick) I have gotten past that with an armband and a Velcro strap to secure the sensor and NightRider in place. The LinkBluCon app works well on my iPhone and provides good records and alarms which will wake you out of a sound sleep for readings out of the range you preset. As a bonus, I find that the sensor will continue working after the 14 day period. I’ve used it two days past with no problem, not sure how long it will actually go.
Night rider and App.
After being inundated with emails touting the direct to watch connectivity, I bought a Night Rider. After some back and forth about delivery with customer care, I received delivery. Luckily it was received after the software update a few days ago to support the US 14 day sensor. If not, it would not have worked at all. Per customer care, the direct to watch functionality for the US 14 day sensor should be available in a few weeks. Nothing about this is mentioned anywhere in their marketing materials. I only bought this for the direct to watch function. Charging $25 for shipping a $9 priority mail envelope is also obscene.
