Welcome to the Android APS documentation¶
What is AndroidAPS?
AndroidAPS is an app that can communicate with bluetooth-enabled insulin pumps, and runs a version of the OpenAPS “oref0” and “oref1” algorithms.
Primary goals behind AndroidAPS:
- modular app where it is possible and easy to add new modules without touching the rest of the code
- app that allows localization
- app where it is easy to select what will be included in final apk with an easy change and compilation
- app which supports open and closed APS mode
- app where you can see how APS works: input params, result and final decision
- ability to add more APS algorithms and let the user decide what to use
- app which is independent from a pump driver and contains a “Virtual pump” to allow users to safely play with APS
- app with tight Nightscout integration
- app where is easy to add/remove constraints for user safety
- all-in-one app for managing T1D with APS and Nightscout
