Community section & articles should be optional 1/5
Agree with other reviews that the data collection & analysis part of this app is excellent, but the community section & content everywhere adds stress and clutter to the experience.
Developers have scattered community posts and in app badge notifications across the app as a “growth hacking” technique. Like ads these features should be opt-out for premium subscribers. I’m considering unsubscribing unless there’s a feature added to opt-out. Ruins the experience imho. Not worth the stress!
Love BUT 4/5
just wish it had notifications for birth control like NuvaRing. Alerts reminding you to take it out and when to put it back in. I would rather get those types of alerts rather than notifications of of strangers posts. If it wasn’t for the fact of how long I’ve been using it and it’s accuracy as far as estimating the day I will get my period I’d probably leave to one that does give NuvaRing alerts. Using it until I find another one I like
I really like glow, the only thing that I don’t like about it is how they make everything for premium members only. But when you want to know what your periods are, they are normally on track, and pretty accurate with the reading. I Consider this app if you are not pregnant and not wanting to get pregnant, I also consider this app if you want to get pregnant, and if you’re recovering from a pregnancy or more. I love this app, it tells you when you’re ovulating, and it tells you when your next period would be.
I couldn’t even set up an account 1/5
I have never downloaded or used this app before in my life. I recently decided to switch fertility tracking apps, and downloaded this one to try. I clicked getting started and filled in all of my information and kept getting an error saying that I had input the wrong email and password combination (I was trying to create an account!), so I figured I would just try to use my alternate email address. Then I received a message saying that I had too many retries and to try again later. So I deleted and downloaded the app and got the same error message. 😡
Error Message 1/5
I have tried to create an account for the last two days. Every time I select next, I receive an error message that states, “too many entries, try again later.” I have even deleted the app to see if that helps and I still receive the same message! Ridiculous!
Great App 5/5
I live this app really helps since im trying for a baby 💗
Prompt to upgrade 2/5
So nice to get prompted to upgrade every single time you open the app. So useful! Also the repeating sale just for me is so thoughtful. Because there aren’t any free apps out there to track your period or see a calendar or read articles or write on message boards, it’s just so special to be asked again and again. And again and again. And again and again.
Best Female App 5/5
I love all of the advice, science, and support behind this app. It is easy to use and has incredible resource!! Love love love.

It’s a very helpful app, I love it
Glow app is cool 3/5
I love the app and the forums but I’m having trouble viewing the comments... a post may say 4 comments and when I click it, it doesn’t show the 4 comments .... idk if this is a glitch or user error but please help. It’s very hard to use
Easy to use but aggravating 2/5
This app reminds me to take my pill everyday. Great! And I can log my period and symptoms quickly without any problems.
However, I’ve turned off Community Alerts and Glow Announcements but I still get a notification 🙄 sooooo annoyingggggg! I wish it could just stop..
Great app 5/5
I track everything with this app it’s awesome!!
What happened to the post 2/5
In the last month I have not been able to see any post.. my profile or anything. Keeps saying I’m offline or something. Is something going on?
I love Glow! 5/5
Try premium version...it’s worth it!
A functional tool, buried in useless nonsense 2/5
I appreciate the apps tracking ability, the calendar, and the fact that you can keep track of symptoms throughout your cycle to better learn about yourself. However, these useful features get buried as the app tries to act as a social network. I have to weed through polls about weight loss (really?! Can we please have a women’s reproductive health tool that doesn’t focus on diet culture?!), trashy message boards, and a bunch of other crap that has nothing to do with tracking your cycle and understanding your body in a healthy way. I wish there was a feature to toggle off all
The social networking stuff and just use the functional tools. Still on the lookout for a better period tracking app.
Can’t adjust luteal phase
I like it 5/5
Lots of annoying notifications but great app to track. Great resources. Great topics discussed. I would recommend
Good to track cycles 5/5
I am very satisfied for using this app for last 4 years
By Jessica Frye
I’m only giving it 4 stars based on the free version it’s possible had I had the premium version I would likely give the extra star to make it five. I really like this app I prefer the prediction when I used it on my kindle fire before switching to my iPhone but either device this app is my go to preference
Creating account 1/5
Wouldn’t let me sign up kept telling me wrong email and password how is that possible when all I’m doing is creating an account in an app I never used
Amazing app!! 5/5
I love this app. It is truly amazing.
So accurate 5/5
By shay shay123!!!
Out of all of the apps I have, this one is most accurate! 😁
Thank you Glow 5/5
I got pregnant on my first month using glow. Thank you, Glow ❤️
Overall the App for PHONE... BUT for APPLE WATCH. 1/5
On my phone the app seems to do quite alright
Cons non of the information transfers to my watch no matter what I do now I’m going to have to change me period app and transfer all my info. It was going so good 😩
Great tracker; poorly moderated community 3/5
Just a quick review here. The app is great for tracking my fertility and my TTC journey... However after scouring through the community I really lost a lot of respect for the app. The community is overrun by a lot of children (13-16) who really shouldn’t be exposed to or seeking out X rated content. I’m scared to death I’m going to come across pictures of someone’s daughter; since it seems the moderators let everything else slide.
There’s a huge difference between sex education and exploitation.
Most accurate than others I’ve used 5/5
By Mama Jedi
I use 2 different apps to track my cycle. Between the 2 Glow is way more accurate in terms of ovulation and when my periods start. Hoping to be pregnant soon!!!
Toxic community 1/5
I have never seen such a rude, disrespectful, and hate filled community in my life. Those women will judge you for anything and everything you do with their holier than thou complexes. The actually tracker side of the app is sub-par and ill be deleting this immediately because of the negativity of that community.
Love it 5/5
Umm what? 1/5
By Idk Idec
My little sister had eve installed in my phone and she uses it to track her period since she doesn’t have a phone yet. I guess she said something that would be “offensive” to some people and her account got suspended. Well, I had an account too and it suspended mine too even though my account is not linked to her account at all. I just deleted the app and so did she, but it’s kind of ridiculous with the suspensions. She said she said she called someone’s makeup bad and her account got suspended. Ridiculous
Don’t buy the premium package! 1/5
I doesn’t worth! I accidentally bought an one year subscription believing it was a monthly payment that I could cancel anytime to try the full version and it wasn’t. They said they couldn’t do anything, that I had to check with the app store to cancel it and Apple said they couldn’t do anything either. I didn’t get my money back for something I don’t use because it is trash.
Super informative and helpful
Used to be better 2/5
It’s over complicated now. It used to be simpler to log data. The period calendar is awful now and isn’t as seamless to use. Also they’re pushing premium so hard
I keep trying to open the app and it’s crashing!!! Help! I store all my data there so I don’t want to delete it.
Best app ever recommend 10/10 5/5
😍 This app is amazing/ wish somethings were free. 4/5
This app is amazing. I love the design of it and also how easy it is to use.
Tracking my period/ Ovulation
My first months ovulation was off but that was due to me not knowing my cycle but now the app is pretty spot on. Now I know that I have a longer cycle than the average. I love that I am becoming more aware of my body. Its amazing to feel and see body changes during your cycle.
I love the community. I am TTC-ing and find that having advice from other women is encouraging. Its almost like a sex aid class where you find out that we all experience the close to or the same symptoms during our periods and ovulation. Be careful for what groups you join. The relationship groups can be very draining and might require you to be Dr. Phil Because the women/teenagers want a lot of advice for toxic relationships. That is not the apps fault. You can always exit a group.
I don’t mind that you have to pay for the app. Its just that I wish predictions were free.
May you please make an option to turn off notifications for a specific comment. I don’t want to see who replies each time to a comment that I posted on. Its annoying.
I like it for tracking my cycle 1/5
But the people in the “community” are weird AF. I wish there was an option to turn the community off.
Edit: I deleted this joke of An app. The community moderators are as awful as the people in the community. Find something else to track your period, TTC.
Updates not improved 3/5
Update in app not for the better. Harder to use and more of a push to upgrade
They don’t let you use the app unless your 13 that’s ridiculous.
Seems to be the most accurate at predicting ovulation. Flo is way off and so is Clue
Don’t use it 1/5
Warning others that Men are rapists is apparently abusive and will make it so you can no longer use the app.
I like the calendar tracking 1/5
This is not a great resource for people using assisted reproductive technology or have non-male partners.
I have used this period tracker for a few years now and really enjoyed how simple and fun it was to use although i was very disappointed to find that the most recent update deleted all of the previous information i had stored up over the years. It was fairly predictable and now i have to start over again 😓.
The community will scare you 2/5
I love this app because it helped me get pregnant (tracking was great) but once I started looking at the different discussion boards I realized I had to stop using it. This is by first pregnancy and all anyone talks about is how they’ve miscarried in their first trimester or had ectopic pregnancies or how they didn’t hear heartbeats during their first or second ultrasound. With my hormones already all over the place...I had to stop reading. It’s unfortunate too because the app offers great info but the discussion boards no matter which ones you look at are all soooo frightening.
Login Function Unusable 1/5
I had high hopes for this app but it appears I simply can't use it. I've never had a Glow account before so I clicked the "get started" button and filled out the initial form. I repeatedly got a "wrong email/password combination" error message... even though I was creating a new account. Went to the website through Chrome, created my account that way, came back to the app to try to log on, and now I'm getting a "user not found" error. Oh well. I tried 🤷🏻♀️
Awesome app, thanks so much. Can’t wait to see my son 5/5
We had been trying for 6 month and wife didn’t conceived. The app help us keeping track of her ovulation and let us know what days my wife will have better chance to conceive.
I love this app. 5/5
By CT 07
I love being able yo talk and discuss issues wiyh other women who are going through the exact same thing! The groups in the app are the best part! There are also to s of resources that are available to those seeking help with things like infertility, planning a pregnancy, or avoiding pregnancy at the current time. I totally give this app 5 stars!
Not worth it upgrading 2/5
Since you pay that much money I was excepting a lot from it but I’m disappointed. Kinda got cat-fished by glo saying If you upgrade you will get this but it’s the same. I don’t know what exactly the upgrade did but it’s the same as the regular FREE one that gives you same information. Made it seem like you get more for what you paid but no. Don’t upgrade. My personal opinion. It’s okay for tracking period but for ovulation and taking pictures of the your ovulation strips gives wrong information.
They are great!! 5/5
Almost perfect 4/5
Doesn’t account for any clomid, hCG, IUI, or IVF treatments
