|Application name:||Spot On|
Today’s period app is Spot On, a very friendly user one made by Planned Parenthood, a company that offers health and parenthood services. The app offers a simple interface with a very basic arrangement, that lets you manage your period and cycle, while getting hints and guidance. You can even get some automatic reminders, if you forget to log some pill intakes. Also, it can remind you to get an appointment with your gynecologist. Pretty clever, right?
On the resources section, you can get a lot of very useful information about sex, birth control, periods, parenthood planning and some info about the apps prediction methods. The last feature actually shows how committed is the service, on giving you precise and trustful information.
The only thing I didn’t really liked here, is when it crushes while trying to get into the calendar section, but that’s pretty much it, the rest works quite well. Spot On doesn’t cares about your Facebook or Google account info, neither your e-mail, or personal data like that. So, if you want to back up your cycle data and stuff, just export it. This is not very common with these type of apps, but it works fine.
