Charting Apps?

I was curious if anyone is using any phone apps to track their cycle.   They seem to have an app for everything, was wondering if there are any good ones for charting.

Your friend's app is an ovulation predictor, which is fine for some, but for someone who is charting their cycles, a more complete app would be needed...one in which you could enter daily temps, cervical fluid, and other fertility signs, and then see it all in "chart" format, not just calendar format.

There are many different apps out there, with different capabilities.  That's a good thing :smileyhappy:

LOL! I hadn't even thought about that, I should have ODD put the period tracker app on her itouch, that would make things so much easier, even if she doesn't keep track of symptoms or anything, but just the start and end of her period. I had figured we'd sync up over time, but in the 2 1/2 years of her having her period, I think we've only had it around the same time half a dozen times at most. She's still relatively erratic.

Yea, my dd was keeping track of hers on an app at first and then she sorta quit.  We're pretty well synched right now...in fact, she just texted me that she started, and I should start today as well.  No wonder chocolate tasted so good yesterday on our little girls' day out :smileywink:

ODD used to chart herself, for the first 18 months and then she hit summer break and got tired of it and stopped, but she's still pretty erratic, so its easy for me to make a note on mine so at least when she is like, hmmm, wonder when my period is going to show up, at least I have an idea of when to tell her. I don't know what she's going to do when she goes off to college next year, oh ya, figure it out herself. Or, knowing her, call me every time she starts so I can continue to keep track for her. LOL!

I started off using Period Tracker and then added Fertility Friend to it. I am not TTC anymore, but still track my period. I have always loved FF, but I like period tracker because I can add notes into it including when my ODD starts her cycle.
