The LinkBluCon app can be used with BluCon (TransAm or NightRider) and 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.

Ratings and Reviews
New version, not improved
The latest update renders my night rider useless. It drops the connection consistently and does not accurately track blood sugars. Despite being able to calibrate, does not come close to actual blood sugars after about five minutes. Wants connection is dropped, takes five minutes to reconnect. Not ideal if you are having high or low blood sugar‘s.
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.
I downloaded this app from apple App Store on my iPhone 7 and have tried for two days to get it to work.
I’ve watched videos on how to do it and I’m doing it right , I’ve even deleted the app and redownloaded it with no results. I’m not happy so I gave app one star
