Helpful but... 3/5
This app is good for tracking period cycles, but one thing that irks me is that you have to pay for helpful information, for example things that can help alleviate period discomfort and pain. This info should come free, it’s ridiculous that something that simple has a fee.
My Age 5/5
By Sanaa M.
I love this app but there’s only one problem, I wish I didn’t have to lie about my real age. I understand the COPPA requirements and all. But it would be really helpful if Flo allowed younger people to use the app.
When I first got the app most things were free, but now all of the insights are for premium users except one video. I used to enjoy reading through the insights that were available even though most of it was common knowledge. I guess I’m going to have to find similar things from another source. It’s kinda like they are gatekeeping useful information that I think many women will benefit from. In school they don’t really cover much, and some insights could teach you a lot. Not to mention the constant notifications with the new update. I keep thinking I’m going to start soon because that used to be the only time I would get notifications from the Flo app. Now I’m probably going to switch to another app that is similar to the old Flo because I’m over the unnecessary notifications.
I started using to track my daughter’s very irregular period several years ago. The tracking function is fine. The fact that this app is for 12+ is absolutely inaccurate. The “Secret Chat” options have disgusting comments that no 12 year old should be reading. It is a platform people are using to write and discuss the most sexual and graphic things no child should have access to. I’m so glad I downloaded in my phone and not hers. Get a different rating if you want to have discussion boards like this. It is so inappropriate!
Used to be Great 3/5
Flo is still very accurate in predicting my periods but I dislike how they are now pushing their subscription on me. This is why I’ve decided to switch apps.
Love this but... 3/5
I’ve been using this app ever since I got my first period. It does it’s job and I love the feature where I can tell stories to other girls. I wish there wasn’t any paying to do stuff like the doctor option and so on. I don’t think that’s fair.
it’s okay 2/5
it’s a good app i guess, my personal viewpoint is just that women shouldn’t have to pay to know more information about their own body and the changes going on inside them. kinda defeats the whole purpose.
I love It 5/5
This app knows me better than I know my self!!
Absolutely hate this 1/5
When i first started my period this is the app i got. It worked fine only 1 or 2 days off at most. Then it was 1 or two weeks off every single time. I have been using it and just assumed that it would be on time this time. It never was again. I am deleting this app as I type
What’s with this locked, subscribe, and pay thing? 5/5
By Logan Ti Ode
I really do love this app but why is everything locked now. Now you have to pay and subscribe for so much, I hate when this happens. I never imagined it would happen to Flo, I’m still not going to ever stop using it though. Thank you for building this amazing app.
Getting worse 3/5
From one update to another, this app is getting worse. Soon i wont be able to breathe without the premium content....
I am usi g this app for like 2-3 year now, and it s really disappointing these days!
For how long can i track my period for free (Just to be prepared)?
i can't find chats 3/5
the recent update has taken away chats !! :(
Used to be Awesome 2/5
I have been using Flo for the last 4 years. I thought it was extremely good when I first started using it.
Now? I receive daily prompts to “take charge of your health” meaning they want me to pay a monthly or yearly subscription fee.
$10 a month is a lot of money for many people out there! And who can give the yearly rate up front?
Flo used to be all about empowering women and giving them the tools they need for self health for free- because we already have to pay for pads, tampons, cups, period underwear, Motrin, etc every month. Now Flo wants to cash in on that too.
Now I understand that app developers need to make money too- but how about you develop “other” content for your subscribers that can afford to pay, and leave the really helpful stuff that used to be free, free?
I’m seeing that you are giving first time period advice only to paid subscribers. You are giving quizzes and saying that you have advice or thoughts on what could be going on with our cycles, but then the answer is only for paid subscribers. Dangling a carrot in the hopes that someone will pay.
Flo, I can’t afford your premium service, and I don’t appreciate that you’ve taken all of the free content that was free for years and now people have to pay to see it.
You also show you couldn’t care less by your copied and pasted responses to everyone here complaining.
I get it: You are a business and you have a bottom line. It’s not personal; it’s business.
Nothing personal here, Flo, but I’m taking all my period info I’ve logged for 4 years, inputting the data elsewhere, deleting your app and using my phone’s free period tracking Health app. I may even browse the other period apps out there. Might find a better match!
Have fun catering only to paid subscribers. It’s been a nice 4 years, but I’ve had enough of your attempts to offer “insights” into why I have irregular periods and then telling me I have to pay for them. How is your paid for content any better than a free search engine and web m.d.?
Love the free app, hate all the recent tactics to upgrade 3/5
By Flo friend 2
Have been using the app for over a year now and loved it! The app helped with fertility windows and we had no issues with getting pregnant based on their insights. Recently they’ve really been plugging their upgrade which would cost a fee. I’m annoyed that every time I open the app to log details or look something up they are pushing this upgrade on me. I’m even considering using a different app now to just be down with this annoyance.
only upside is tracking your cycle 1/5
this app is crazy money grabbing. even if you want some simple advice, you have to pay for it. i would personally like to know how to take care of myself without having to hit a pay wall. aside from that, the creators of this app don't know that people that aren't women have periods. it's insulting and this app is garbage.
trans people exist 3/5
it would be really great if this app acknowledged that trans people exist and can menstruate. they consistently use “women” and “girls” which is super alienating and uncomfortable if you’re transgender. having color choices other than pink (nothing wrong with pink i’m just sick of it) would be neat too
The best period app!!!! 5/5
This is hands down the best period app out there. After tracking my periods for a few years, Flo has gotten when I’m going to have it to the T (I used to have really irregular ones and didn’t know how to keep track, so this is great). The chat feature always has useful info and is really supportive. Overall just wonderful!
It used to be good 2/5
I’ve had this app ever since I started back in 7th grade and talking on there with other girls about embarrassing experiences was free and it made me feel like I wasn’t alone, everyone was so supportive of one another. But now they make you pay for it :/ a horrible idea
Love it, but.... 5/5
Hi, I love how this app tracks my period, but I think it could work on being more inclusive. I am a trans man who still gets my period (unfortunately 😗✌🏻) and I think this app could be more inclusive to that!!
Went from good to terrible! 2/5
At first I really loved this app. I appreciated how they listened to users to add better features, specifically with the forums/community aspect. However I’ve just gotten to the point where I can’t stand this app anymore. They are just doing more and more to push the premium feature. They’ll act like they’re offering a feature to you and you’ll take time to start that feature (like taking a quiz about symptoms you’re feeling) just to have the results only available if you pay. It’s very misleading. They’re adding more and more pop ups and ads to try and convince you to pay for premium. For the price, it doesn’t seem worth it at all and those I’ve talked to in the community agree that it’s not worth it. I’m looking for a new period/fertility app to use so I can be done with Flo for good. It’ll be worth the annoying process of transferring my data over.
Help pls 3/5
The app is great but it always says my period is late by five days. Which I don’t understand because if it’s always late by five days then it’s not late the app is just wrong. How do I readjust it?
Tracks okay but the **** notifs drive me nuts 1/5
Update to the developer’s asinine reply: turning off *all* notifications would negate the purpose of having the app to track my period. What I’m asking is for the useless daily notifications that beg me to buy something be able to be switched off. Read my whole review next time; it clearly says that.
The tracker is cool and very accurate now that I’ve used it for years but for the life of me I cannot turn off the daily notifications with useless workout and energy info that come every day. I checked every notification setting off and still they come without my permission. I can’t turn the app notifications off totally because then I’d miss the period warnings. It’s a dumb hill to die on but the notifs get increasingly annoying and are completely irrelevant clogs in my Lock Screen and Notification Center. Please fix this, I love the app otherwise, but considering finding one with less notifs
Not Accurate! 2/5
I was using this app for 5 months while trying to get pregnant, with no luck. It was a week and a half off from my ovulation cycle even though I was filling out all of the info accurately. I only give this 2 stars because I like how the app functions.
Good, and useful
By NUNYA BUISSNESS!
When I tap on something it doesn’t work.
Doesn’t recognize nexplanon as form of BC 4/5
Loved this app when I wasn’t on birth control, it really helped me track my cycle and ovulation and helped me determine when my hormones would affect me according to that. But now that I’m on nexplanon I don’t see a use for this app, sadly. I would love to be able to track my irregularities in my cycle without it telling me I’ve been “late” for 14 days. Can you please make an update that helps us women on implanted BC options to be able to track our experiences on these forms? Thanks
I love this app but... 5/5
By Mackenzie Bergemann
I love this app but I think they should add a birth control setting. Like if a woman, such as myself, gets and iud or goes on the pill. After placing my iud I bleed for two months straight and I logged all of it but after I stopped bleeding said I was late. I would’ve liked it to show me my next period dates but it just goes on to say I’m late. Cause I still wanna know when to predict my menstrual symptoms. But I love the app.
GET IT NOW 5/5
This app is amazing I highly recommend it
Started great, now about to delete 2/5
I’ve used this app on different phones for years. I love that it stores your data and can give pretty accurate predictions on ovulating and menstruating. It can notify you when you’re about to start either which was so helpful. Within the past couple years they started adding more insights, articles, etc. which were sometimes helpful but I never used them heavily. With the most recent updates they’ve started to make these extras available to only premium users which is fine, but I now find myself using it less and less.
The kicker that’s got me about ready to delete is that every day it gives notifications about goofy stuff “find out more about your hormones” “what you might be feeling before ovulation.” I’ve gone through every setting and there is no way to turn it off. I’ll be showing something on my phone to someone and get a notification about “tips to keep your vagina healthy” and it’s embarrassing. The only way to get it to stop is to turn off notifications for the whole app through my phone settings, but then I don’t get notifications for when my period is coming or when I’m ovulating so it defeats the whole purpose of the app!! I just wanted a simple tracker, not all this extra bs. I noticed the iPhone Health app that comes preloaded on the iPhone has a menstruation tracker with the same features, predictions, and upcoming period notifications. I’ll be switching to that. Disappointing to see a helpful app become so demanding & useless.
Saddened and disappointed 2/5
By Strawberry brain's
I used to really love this app, cycle predictions were accurate, the design was easy, and most importantly the content WAS FREE. The new updates, for the most part, were fine. The drawings are super cute, the predictions were still fine, but all of a sudden important stuff like what to expect at your first OBGYN appointment or other important questions kids might not feel comfortable asking, were locked! You have to pay to get to this, which I think is crazy! Why have an app targeted to young women trying to learn about their bodies, but have it be a subscription, when it’s targeted as free? I understand times are tough now, and this app may need funding or something, but the premium is just terrible, and I hope you will fix it so young girls and just women in general can easily access valuable information regarding their bodies and health without having to pay. (I understand having some things locked, but now it’s gotten to the point where almost every article is for premium users...so frustrating!)
I truly love this app, I’ve been using it to track my period for years now. I would highly recommend it!
By Livy N
i am not one to write reviews, but this app deserves it. the open yet anonymous chats are amazing. i have never been so proud or open about my period. i also no longer have the feeling of going through daily female struggles alone (including mental health.) i have never felt so loved
Wants you to pay 1/5
They want you to pay to keep track of your period. It’s bad enough we didn’t ask for it and already have to buy pads or tampons. 🤦🏻♀️ will never download this app again.
Asks for payment too many times 4/5
I only use this app now to check maybe around when my period starts but it will have you track your moods then ask you for payment like it’s got such valuable information that you didn’t already know. Just kinda a turn off of the value of the app
It was a little confusing but it seems like a great app!
Five Stars 5/5
This app really helps me keep up with my period and gives me insights on why I feel the way I do!! I highly recommend this app for all women!!
poor app 1/5
By bloody huchimama
this app is so bad.
It was good and then... 4/5
It’s good for tracking and everything. It was SO much better before the insights started being for premium users only.
Why premium? 3/5
As females we already have to go through paying for tampons, pads, medications, etc. Why do we have to pay for something to track it? Flo has a very nice setup but I am not going to pay an outrageous price for any of the premium content when I am already paying big bucks for hygiene products. Flo should have everything free and then have donation amounts that people can choose to pay. I would be willing to donate but not pay the tons of money to have to continually pay.
Greatest app for girls 5/5
By Apps up the grwats
Omg this is the best I love this app it can comment on things and see when my periods coming.
Super annoying and over priced 2/5
In the beginning the app was great. I was able to learn helpful tips about my period, mental, and emotional health, and then one day all of that free, and helpful content was turned into premium content. I hate having to pay just to learn why my appetite changes on my period. It’s also annoying that I get reminded everyday to become a premium user. It’s ridiculous. I mean come on one month is $10. You’ve got broke, depressed, and mentally unstable college students out here and you think adding another bill/subscription for my period is necessary? Ok.
Worst app experience ever. 1/5
By Bread kittens1
I have been dealing with all the changes and things becoming paid for and not free any longer. That’s fine, but today I login and I lost EVERYTHING. I’m 20 weeks pregnant and I had been tracking everything with this app. I can’t change anything back to the correct due date, the information is all wrong. I officially deleted this app today.
Accurate and so helpful! 5/5
I’ve been using this app for almost a year now. I can now see when my period is coming and ending. Amazing on how accurate it is! Love this app!
Disappointing Update 2/5
I have been using this app as a period tracker for a couple years and I used to love it. However, the new update has changed the interface and made it so that all the helpful features are available only to premium users— and unfortunately that’s just not something I’m willing to spend money on at the moment. The free version is now basically just a calendar and all the other great features are no longer available. Sad to be looking for another period app now!
Yeah, I'm not paying 50 dollars a year to track my period. I'll buy a calendar.
This app is super accurate with timing your period. But ever since they started promoting Flo premium every 5 seconds I HATE this app.
Best Period tracker! 5/5
By Freddie Mercury:)
I use this app for tracking my period, it is really easy and reminds when NOT to wear white pants😂
La amo 5/5
By mariangel 1234
Demasiado bueno predice mi ciclo perfectamente súper recomendable
Use to be good! 1/5
I use to love this app & now you have to have premium to do anything. Won’t even tell you why you feel a way without wanting money. It cost more than it should.
