My children and I... 5/5
Love the app it comes close to predicting my monthly cycle along with my two daughters.
Comments aren’t showing up 3/5
Every time I click on a post that has comments none of them will show, please fix ASAP
Ovulation date 2/5
Doesn’t adjust ovulation date for cycle length. It took me 4 months of failing to conceive to realize that the ovulation date is set for a 28 day cycle and even if you have a 26 day cycle, it doesn’t adjust to your correct ovulation date........ that’s basically the apps only function and it fails at it 🙄
Beware of false advertising 1/5
The app itself is ok. But beware of deceitful marketing...
I had been seeing the “try glow for free!” Option Since I first downloaded the app. They recently had a sale, so I finally clicked the “try for free” banner. I read everything on the next page which clearly stated I “could cancel before the trial was over and I would not be charged” and understood that if I wanted to continue with premium it would then charge my card the sale price of $33 for a one year subscription.
Well the second I downloaded it they charged me via apple pay, which I did not know was coming (since they literally just stated that I wouldn't be charged yet...).
When I reached out they said they couldn't do anything since it was all through apple pay. I followed their instructions for requesting a refund through apple (about a 10 minute process) and was flat out denied the refund. I feel so deceived and upset with this company. I thought they were doing really cool stuff but turns out they're just ripping people off.
Way too overwhelming 2/5
This app has way too many tabs, bars, panels, charts, paragraphs of text. It’s ridiculously overwhelming and not intuitive. It feels like it was created by advertisers or sponsors who push their own products and services masked as Glow “information.”
Keeps me on track 5/5
Glow is so easy to use and it such a great help to me to track my period and my fertility. Love the “mood” and “symptom” trackers too!

Love this app!
Good but people are toxic 3/5
It’s a good app and everything but that whole community is the reason I deleted it. The women on there are so vicious and mean at times and I personally could not deal with it.
Really like but.... 2/5
I have really liked this app but I recently had a miscarriage and they don’t have an option to record that or leave out a cycle when predicting future cycles. Because of this lack of feature my last couple cycles are not correct with ovulation.
I’ve been using the Glow app REGULARLY. I mean at least once a day I try to go on it to log and I still can’t message anyone. It’s been a month and a day of continuous use. What’s going on? Is there something I’m not doing right?? Overall it’s a good app but if I have to pay to message people that’s just dumb.
Better Than The Other Popular One 5/5
I have been use the FF for over 12 years now. I was hesitant to try Glow bc I am loyal to FF buttttttt......Glow is way better. Honestly the OPK analyzer alone is worth the switch but I love everything about it. It’s more user friendly, more active and the loo and design is very fresh/new/updated can’t find the exact wording for it but it’s just very positive and refreshing. I hope it stays that way!
Awesome awesome awesOMe! 5/5
I appreciate this app immensely!
Didn’t get premium.. 2/5
I upgraded to premium and every time it still asks me to upgrade and won’t show me further information/analysis. The basic stuff it shows isn’t very helpful so I’m not a fan and wasted $7.99.
Drama prone app 2/5
I used this app for a while but one I find it’s time consuming to put everything in and two the groups in that the app has users seem to like to attack each other and make people feel like nothing. Anytime I wanted help with a question or something I would get attacked and felt like crap. If you love drama and gossip type stuff then this is for you cause otherwise stay away from this app!!!
The best 5/5
By Sandy Harrigan
My husband and I kept trying to conceive and nothing happened. My friend told me how the Glow app was great so I downloaded it and it was a dream come true. The app tells you exactly when you're ovulating and your chances of getting pregnant on certain days. And it really works and is accurate. Any woman looking to conceive this is the app for you. Thank you Glow!
Doesn’t work 1/5
By kaiser is cute
It won’t let me make an account.
Uninstalled after failing to do its basic function 1/5
I was tired of this app giving me near-heart attacks with every “late day” notice because it wasn’t adjusting itself. This is despite my faithful input every single day of my last 3 cycles. Finally after 3 months of this I’ve had it. I’m looking for another app.
Excellent Tool and Informative 5/5
I like Glow because it’s not just a practical record keeping tool but informative as well.
I got suspended from this app for writing an opinion in the “ controversy corner.” Ridiculous. Stupid app for dumb kids.
Educated but discouraged 3/5
This app is very helpful to learn about your body, your cycle and yourself. The ability to join and leave appropriate groups is wonderful. The complaint I have is that the app inundated me with how and why and when I should consider IVF. After trying to conceive for almost a year now, I left certain community groups to avoid having to see success stories of others while I’m unable to conceive....only to be reminded daily by the app itself that I’m not conceiving. Then it goes on to suggest that I update to the premium service and then various IVF options. I already know that’s an option, but to have the daily reminders is a little debilitating in my venture.
Perhaps this app could be altered to have an optional section without pushy “suggestions/notifications” that remind me daily of my inability to conceive.
Community is ridiculously rude. 2/5
The predictions have gotten better for me, but this community is rude. I shouldn’t have to change what topics I read through and post in simply because snobbish women feel the need to judge others and post their negative condescending opinions in the comment sections below other women’s posts. It should be made more clear that just because someone lives differently than you or has a different opinion doesn’t give rights to being snobbish and acting ugly. I come to this app for positivity, not so that people can treat me like I’m a dummy for handling things differently than they.
Mostly great, but missing something 4/5
I love the percent chance of pregnancy this gives and the predictions you can edit but I would love it if there was an option to skip a period. If you don't log a period, it says your period is late, then starts counting the days you're late and if you don't plan on have a period for a while, it will just continue to count the days late, not giving any pregnancy percentage and just staring you right in the face like something's wrong when everything is totally fine. Other than that, I really like the look and use of this app
So far, meh 3/5
While it’s nice to have a somewhat easy way to track all my stuff in one place, I’m super bummed that there isn’t a way to mark my ovulation when it actually happens. I know that Glow estimates it for me but it hasn’t been right yet, but there’s no way to mark it (other than writing a “note” for that day). I wish, similar to the period setting, it would estimate it for you, then allow you to adjust the actual date(s) for more accurate data analysis.
Glo Review 5/5
This app is great!
By Ashley Hohmann
If you’re not willing to censor yourself 99.9% of the time, don’t download. Free speech doesn’t exist on this app, and you can be suspended easily. Not worth it... much better apps out there.
Love the app
So much for signing up for a free trial to see what other advantages I will be getting more with the app if it doesn’t want to show me!
About to cancel that.
Just started TTC with my partner and this app is amazing and is giving so much helpful insight. I highly recommend this app (and going premium for feminine product discounts). The other apps by Glow are great as well!
The Best Cycle and Fertility Tracker 5/5
This app is the best if you are trying to track your periods or if you’re trying to get pregnant. I’ve been using this app faithfully for 5 years at first to track my cycles and it was always correct with the dates. The ovulation dates are correct as well because I had my daughter in June 2018 and when I checked my calendar her date of conception was the exact date that the app gave. I would recommend this app to anyone even with the updates it has never steered me wrong.
Easy to use! 5/5
More accurate then many other apps I’ve used.
Love it 5/5
Best app I have tried so far. So many amazing topics and things to help all of us women to reach our dream goals.
It’s alright 3/5
It’s not always accurate lately for me it’s been off. The community room is good great stories and support
What happened? 1/5
Used this app 2 years ago when I was TTC with my first. Downloaded again as we are planning on TTC our second, this app is HORRIBLE. It won’t let me update my status, enter my sons dob. Deleting for good
LOVE THIS APP 5/5
It keeps me on top of everything and I’m not very aware of my body and what’s happening! I couldn’t be more grateful and bought the premium immediately! I would highly recommend this app!
Nifty little app! 5/5
I really enjoy this app for many reasons; first & foremost it’s a great, positive & uplifting community for women (our partners as well) to chat amongst one another & share their experiences, the good & bad. Secondly, it helps my partner & I prepare/plan for our “miracle” which is amazing, especially when you’re busy with life as we know it! It helps to have a PRIVATE calendar to log important events! 🥰
All & all I would highly suggest taking a chance on this app, there’s so much helpful information here!
Used to love it 3/5
I used to love this app but the last update it seems the ovulation test logging part no longer works to take a photo of the strip. Also, the forum doesn’t appear to be working.
It keeps glitching out 1/5
It glitches out
Love this app!!!
App won’t sync with apple watch 4/5
I’ve been using Glo for a long time and i like the app but i recently got an apple watch and the app will sync to my watch then sometimes it says no period data on my watch. Is there a way to fix this?
Just ads and heterosexism 1/5
Glow used to be great, but these days it’s 90% ads. They reeeaally want you to do IVF through their program. 🙄
And as a queer person, there are so many things that make me feel out of place here. Switching to Clue.
Stop sending me 400 notifications a day 3/5
The amount of notifications I get from a period tracking app is insane. I’d rather roll the dice with my calendar app than open my phone and have to clear out 30 notifications about some community discussion I have no interest in. Can you make it an option to shut off notifications?? I tried to do that yet I still get more alerts from this app than most group chats.
Cluttered with paid add ons 2/5
By What is the verbal diarrhea
When I first got this app it was great kept everything on track ,it’s pretty accurate but now it just feels like the app is cluttered with a bunch of add ons you have to pay for. It’s annoying with all the pop ups for the add ons when you’re trying to enter things. I don’t even use this app everyday anymore just during the week of my period.
Great app 5/5
This app is always on point. It’s been right every since I started using it.
Great app! 5/5
By Denee' B
I love this app but I hate that if I click multiple sex sessions the option to choose birth control method disappears.
Best app ever 5/5
By Lovers only
I love Glow. This app has everything needed to stay connected and organize.
Great app for avoiding pregnancy or ttc. Sometimes it can have your ovulation off so definitely make sure you pay attention. Other than that it’s very easy to use and the boards are good for interacting with people.
Never worked with Apple Watch 3/5
I chose this app because I have an Apple Watch and it is one of the only fertility apps that has an Apple Watch function. I never was able to get it to sync to my watch— it just kept saying “need data.” Despite all of the suggestions in the help section to get it to sync it never worked. The phone app is fine but I decided to go with a different app to track periods and fertility.
Shady charging schemes 1/5
This app is okay for tracking periods, but be careful what you click on.
I guess at some point I did a free trial for the premium version. Well, the other day an ad popped up that said, “try premium free for 14 day”. I clicked on it. No other warnings popped up, letting me know I wasn’t eligible to try for free. I guess since I had already done some sort of trial in the past, that pop up didn’t apply to me. Honestly, it’s something I can’t remember doing. That was that, they charged my apple account 48 bucks. Looking through Q&A’s it says they don’t do refunds.
By why do i have to do tbks
Have had to reset my password 5 times and now the app doesn’t recognize my user name. But I can log on to the website no problem.
