I noticed that the app is not displaying the symbols for the OpenAPS (NS-dev branch) pill properly.

think that might be using an old version of safari or some limited webview
I've seen that in @danamlewis's screenshots

I think it's the version of safari
using the unicode chars for the status was easy, but I had a feeling it might not work everywhere

funny.
i dont really use my ipad ever (well until today!) so i did not even have chrome on it.
just installed chrome. guess the app uses chrome first and safari as fallback. so works now in the app.
oh wait, i take that back. swear it was working for a minute.

Pretty sure you need to upgrade iOS to get some of them.

that's all we've used our ipad for (bedside BG display) since we first got DIYPS set up. :)
unfortunately my ipad is old and can't keep up with the number of treatments in our NS.

we actually have 2 of them in the house that never get used. one is now permanently set up bedside and the other next to my laptop on my desk now :)

need to work with someone to optimize the resource requirements for displaying the blue cityscape
the change to only pull 3h initially helped a lot, but once it pulls everything it often can't handle it and will either crash or only display the most recent treatments
works much better on my (much more powerful) iPhone 6s

yeah i noticed it being slow on the ipad (several years old) vs 6s
