This app rocks!
At first I was hesitant in purchasing this app bc of the price, but then I thought what's an extra 10 bucks?! After using it I'm sooo happy I decided to buy it, it totally changed my cycle, it makes it more "fun". It's such a complete app, all the medications and appointments are already stored in the suggestions, so it's very quick and easy to input information. Now I could say: well worth the money!
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY
The App froze when I tried to enter a protocol for my 2nd cycle. There is no way to get assistance for technical issues, as the email address is no longer in service, rendering my communication undeliverable. (I'm sure the developer still got her freaking money!) I bought this App earlier this month, so guess this is my fault for failing to realize that the most recent update for this App was in December 2010. (I blame the hormones for my stupidity. Thank you Caroline for taking of advantage of women going through a tough and emotional situation.)
This is an excellent app! I thought the original version was good, but the new version is so much better. It has a bunch of improvements and new features, and is super easy to use. Honestly I couldn't go through my cycle without it. Amazing!
