Ditched another app for this one

Agnes morris

I’ve had it for 8 months now. However because my bc pill has never been added, my calendar will always be off. Knowing that there are tons of different types of BC and you may never actually get them all in there, it would be nice to be able to edit the pill slider. Because even though I am able to make a personal account for my pill, it still won’t take exactly how many pills are in there in calculation. So I end up having this problem where it thinks I’m on pill 12 but I’m actually at the end of my pack.

It’s good for just keeping the calendar of your period and such but if you are like me who likes everything sewed up and organized, this might shake you a bit because of some of the inaccuracies that will start to happen. And then instead of just editing what pill you are on, it makes you wipe all of your data and you have to re-enter it. It’s such a pain.

Other than that though, the calendar has come in handy for someone like me who never gets her period and has to scroll through months for the doctor to get to her last day.

Hi there, we're so sorry to hear about your issues with your pill. We strive to include as many pill brands as possible, and would like to know more about what brand you are on so that we can incorporate it into the app. May you please email so that we can assist further?

Great App Could Use Other Features Though


I think this app is a wonderful new alternative compared to other period apps available. It is really nice how this app can be specific to the type of birth control you are taking such as ring, IUD, patch, shot instead of only having the pill option. The app is great at providing you with information on your type of birth control as well as other important facts. It is also nice to be able to get reminders for your birth control right from the app.

However, I think this app would seriously benefit from adding a comments option for the calendar. That way the user can add more detail to help them be able to give their doctor as much information as possible if needed. Such as if your period started at around 10pm and you want to be able to specify bleeding started late night instead of it appearing like it was all day. It would also be very helpful if the dates when you put in or took out your ring were customizable instead of set based on when you put it in once. Some people wait an extra week sometimes to take it out and get their period, but with this app you can't really adjust that.
Also, for some reason my ovulation dates are not appearing in my calendar. I see that it is a feature from the featured pictures in the app description, but I cannot figure out how to get my ovulation dates to appear.

Overall, it is a wonderful app and I'm sure it'll only get better!

Well-designed, but misses the point


I downloaded this app hoping it would take the place of another period tracker I've had for a while that's a little cumbersome. I was impressed with the simplicity and ease of use of this app...but it won't track my period. I don't really have an unpredictable cycle; every other app I've ever used has been within a few days of predicting my start date. I input periods all the way back through July hoping that it would figure out my cycle from that, but because my period in October was late due to stress, my cycle is too unpredictable for the app. This wouldn't be a problem if the app still even tried to guess, but it doesn't. So I'm logging my periods on two apps; one that's better at logging symptoms (this) and another that will actually tell me when I'm ovulating or about to start. I'll probably have to give this one up soon, but I hope future updates will address the issue.

Hi! We're sorry to hear you're having issues with your period predictions.

For 'No Method' or 'Copper IUD' users:
The app should be predicting your upcoming periods in two places - the calendar and Profile View. To see in the calendar, visit Day View and click on the calendar icon in the upper right corner. To see in Profile View, select the Profile tab.

Your period predictions will stop showing in the calendar and/or the Profile View if you periods have recently been irregular (meaning that you do not get your period every 21-35 days). Your predictions will return once your periods have been regular (within the 21-35 day cycle) for 1-3 cycles.

For Ring, Combination Pill, and Patch users:
If you are a 'Ring', 'Pill', or 'Patch' user your period prediction will be tied to when you are on your placebo pill week. You can see your period predictions in Profile View by selecting the Profile tab.

For Hormonal IUD, Implant, Shot, and Progestin-only Pill users:
Many hormonal IUD, Implant, and Progestin-only Pill users get their periods very sporadically or not at all (since there is no hormone break) so it is impossible for our developers to create an equation for accurately predicting periods. Unfortunately, Spot On cannot learn from your cycle and that is why you are not seeing period predictions.
