xdrip/xbridge/G5 reader for iOS devices -

  • Initial and subsequent Calibration
  • Additional calibration request alerts but not the 12-hour calibration request alert
  • View latest calculated value on Home screen with "minutes ago" and diff with previous reading
  • Always on notification (not really always but almost always) that allows to see the current value by just lifting up the phone (iOS 10).
  • Upload to Nightscout
  • When the app is in the foreground, upload will always happen immediately after receiving a new value, also at app start,
  • When the app is in the background, then the trigger to upload is a remote notification.
    • The app will subscribe to a service as soon as you launch it. As soon as the first bgreading is received, the app will receive a remote notification the minute after it's supposed to receive a new bgreading. This remote notification opens the app in the background, and allows it to do an upload to NightScout. The upload may have a delay of maximum 1,5 minute. The trigger is actually being sent by another app on a spare iphone on my desk which is always on. There's no guarantee that this app is always alive. There's no guarantee that upload to NightScout is successful.
  • set transmitter id
