Period Tracker ios versionAndroid version

period trackerTrack your periods with a press of a button. Lots of apps predict your period’s monthly due date. But Period Tracker doesn’t base its projections on the standard, 28-day calendar—since so few women’s bodies actually adhere to it. Instead it will take out the average of your last three months’ menstrual cycle to predict the start date of your next period. Apart from your current and the future period dates, you can also know about the ovulation and the fertile days, the moods that you are going to witness and the symptoms in a simple month-view calendar. You can download here ios version / Android version


Mommies who use educational apps, should try The Honor Roll.  The app was previously released as "Moms With Apps" and has been redesigned, refocused and renamed "The Honor Roll". It is now an expertly annotated and curated catalog of apps covering all developers in the entire iOS app store as opposed to a subset of developers.
