• I'm glad to hear you got something to work, @nienno!

    I think you're right about missing a companion app that accepts a Web request over BLE. The Android app on this thread might be able to do it, by making a Web request itself to, and then publishing that. While I don't think I can give many details on that, I can get you started with https://developer.android.com/training/v­olley/simple

    It also might might sense to do this as a "push" action rather than a "pull" one. As in, maybe it would be too slow to make a Web request in order to respond to a BLE request and then give the answer. You can tell xDrip to send a "Broadcast Intent" every time it receives a new reading. The BLE app could then pick up those broadcast intents, and use them to publish the value.

    Again, I can only get you started, but you enable the broadcast intents by going to Settings -> Other Settings -> Inter-app settings -> Broadcast locally. There's some documentation at https://developer.android.com/guide/comp­onents/broadcasts, and it starts with probably-confusing overview, then gets to showing you actual code at the "Receiving broadcasts" heading.

    Let me know if you'd like me to try to expand on any of this!
