Inaccurate notifications are frustrating 3/5
No app is going to be accurate on its own as far as ovulation without OPK use. But today I get a notification that I am going to ovulate tomorrow. I am 4 days past ovulation. Opening the app confirms that the app knows this. Still I get this completely wrong notification.
As for the period predictor, it goes off of cycle days instead of days plus LP, so it can be off by a day or two.
Overall I like the calendar, although I’d like to to have your literal phase tracked on the calendar the way Fertility Friend does. I like the option for photo OPK, although I wish it had an analyzer like Premom. And I like the forum, although I see a lot of ignorant and immature posts from kids harassing other people or promoting teen pregnancy. The app is decent if you use it with another two or three. And disable wrong notifications.
No Support Whatsoever 1/5
At some point last week, Glow completely messed up my period and ovulation in the app. It had me ovulating the day after my period! The app is literally useless with this wrong information. I’ve written to Glow support twice now and have received no response of a correction of the app for me. If I have to leave Glow, I’ll lose a year of information I will have to put into another app. Horrible!!! I wish I had never started with Glow and had gone elsewhere. Maybe now that I’m posting publicly they will help, but that is not ideal at all.

Here are some things that I look for in a period app.
1. Not having to pay for a subscription
2. Having a community of other women who also are on the app
3. Being able to accurately predict when my period is
All these points were hit! Plus you can “add a partner” so that whoever you add to your cycle can know when you are on your period
I love this
Can’t even voice my opinion on anything
Accurate Predictions 5/5
I have been using Glow for years to track my periods because I am not on birth control. It is extremely accurate.
It works! 5/5
I love how all you have to do is fill in your symptoms everyday. Glow does the planning and thinking for you. All you have to do is follow Glow’s advice!
I am PREGNANT!
I never give less then 5 star reviews... 2/5
... because it’s difficult for me to be critical of anyone. The people who developed this app clearly put a lot of hard work into it.
The issue is they claim portray the app as the best of the best and world class, but it’s not. It’s not intuitive, the reporting is difficult to read, the app is slow, and the community feature is very poor.
I haven’t tried other apps because I paid for a premium membership. I trusted that I would get my money’s worth.
However, I do believe the people working on this app are working to improve it. There’s easy access to support, and they respond quickly.
I’ll continue to use this for a few more months to see if they make the changes I need for further use down the road.
Am I missing something?? 2/5
Tried to sign up, every time I finished typing everything in and submitted it it would say email and password don’t match????? Tried again and same thing, after trying 2 times it said that I had tried too many times??????? I never realized your password is supposed to be your email. Unless I am missing something
Poor quality 1/5
By brittany toscano
The app has been very slow and won’t reload or load any content. I can’t update my profile bc it says “failed to sync” I turn my phone off and on. Re-download the app I’ve tried everything.
Love it 5/5
It’s easy to use and it’s a community app so you can talk to other women about female things lol
Can’t create a new account 1/5
I just got the app and when I try to set up a new account it says that my name and email does not match. I have never been on this app so I don’t understand why it is wrong. Also now it is saying to many wrong entry’s try again later.
This app is filled with hateful people. I deleted it and won’t be back.
Won’t let me sign in 1/5
I try to create an account, and it keeps saying “too many retries try again later”?? I deleted the app and redownloaded it again and it still says the same thing.
Years later, still love Glow! 5/5
By Alyssa Duvall
I’ve used Glow to track my fertility and avoid and plan pregnancy for years now. I don’t use any other NFP methods, just relying on Glow’s accuracy in predicting ovulation. It has worked beautifully for me!
Disappointed with customer service 1/5
I love the app so far, to the point where I purchased premium. Upon doing this I received no premium features. It still was asking me to sign up. I would press to sign up and it would say I already did. I basically paid $18 for nothing. I tried to contact them but no reply.... would be nice to have my money back...
No free trial Premium charges you right away 1/5
By Sena Castino
I get that stupid pop up to upgrade to premium and now that we are ready for a baby, I clicked the 7 day FREE trial to see what it was like. My husband just told me days later that they charged me for a whole year. Are you kidding? I’ve done several free trials and purposely put it in my calendar to unsubscribe and NOT get charged. This app changed SO much since I’ve become a member in 2015. Not interested in GLOW anymore 👋🏻
Really helpful !!!
Great app 5/5
Great I have my whole family linked so they know to leave me tf alone
Best app ever!! 5/5
I like the apps but.. 4/5
I don’t understand why the apps don’t sync (unless I’m doing something wrong)
If I’m not
It would be AMAZING if I didn’t have to put in the same info on all of the apps made by the developer
I’ve been using glow for a couple years... 1/5
I do not recommend it’s The notifications/offers to subscribe/discounts on subscriptions are nonstop and distracting from actual charting. This app ignores all input symptoms and does not change ovulation date based on info unless you have paid subscription... also the subscription is more expensive than other apps. Suffice to say I never paid lol and just kept track of my periods but the random junk I don’t care about is frustrating. Recently switched to a tempdrop and the NeoFertility app; much more effective, safe, intelligent, user friendly, intuitive, and less than half of what glow charges for a year subscription to an app (glow) that is not medically competent.
Accurate and easy to use! 5/5
I love the Glow app. After the first few months of recording my cycle, Glow has given me accurate forecasts of my upcoming cycles. I like how I can update the physical changes my body goes through throughout the month. After using this app consistently, I feel like I have a better accuracy of when to expect my cycle and what is happening with my body. Thanks Glow!
Magical app 5/5
This thing is spot on every month! As long as you input the calculations in correctly as often as possible, it will Perfectly sync
By beanith beanorito
I can’t even log in to start it because it keeps telling me wrong username and password when I’ve never had this app before
My Baby Caylilly 5/5
I have a four favorite: I’m never going to c my family again for fear this may take all nights rest: Doug and Jon. What should we do? It’s cool
Natural Family Planning 5/5
Been using for almost a year. Great way to know your cycle, great for the partnership. Frankly, can be helpful in regards to avoiding pregnancy. Seems extremely accurate, just need to update with as much information as possible.
Love the app 5/5
Love the app ive been using it for about a year. Im pretty irregular but almost always gets my pediod right, and so many things more. I would recommend to anyone
Glow makes me glow inside and out 👌🏻💪🏻👍🏻👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻💜💜💜💜💜 5/5
I love glow gives me more options then I even thought u could want. I no gloss for my back and so easy to use, gives intelligent tips and advice and is really cool love love love this app will recommend !!.!!
Spot on 1/5
I don't love it like I used to. It used to predict my period to the day, lately it's been off by a day or two every month. All of the extra stuff on here is annoying and unnecessary. Logging is more difficult now that every section has to be saved individually and I find myself losing interest in this app. Sometimes, more isn't better...
Update: the app now takes at least a full 15 seconds to open and half the time it crashes as soon as it does. When I can log, it’s very laggy and annoying to use 😞
Still way too cluttered, constantly asking if I want to to try IVF which I have to close out everywhere it pops up. Still off by a couple of days. I now only only go on and log if something happens, the rest of the days I leave blank
What about IVF 3/5
It would be nice if the predictor was able to be “paused” for IVF. Right now I’m not trying to predict my symptoms for ovulation etc., because I’m using assisted fertility to conceive. So when the app tells me I haven’t logged symptoms it’s because I’m not tracking my CM or body temp. I’m tracking my meds and bloodwork estradiol/progesterone levels.
The only helpful part of this app for an IVF patient like me, currently, is the community aspect.
Watch your wallet 1/5
I was unknowingly charged $20 for this app so be careful downloading because I had no warning or notice.
“Too many tries , try again later “ 2/5
Hello . I’ve been trying to create an account for 4 days now . Tried deleting and downloading the app again and I still got the same message “Too many tries, try again later”. I tried once in the morning and once at night . Is there anything else I should try to do ??
Need help 1/5
How do I get my money back if my child accidentally purchased the gold premium? I den want that.?
This app is not a go to app 1/5
Honestly the app needs to exercise if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all. You go looking for support, advice, people who have experienced what you’re going through and in return you get a smart remark, rude comment, criticized, judged. When I say something back to them, that’s when the post gets deleted. It’s cool though, I’ll find something better. Screw this and those on it. People hide behind a screen but probably wouldn’t dare say half the stuff to your face. Good day, and GOOD RIDDANCE glow and glow baby.
Perfect App 5/5
This app is the best for your fertility tracking, it has a ton of different options. So you can use the app even if you’re not pregnant or trying to conceive.
I wanted a period tracker and this was highly recommended. When I went to set up an account it wouldn’t let me use my email or password it said that it was the wrong combination and I tried it several different ways then it told me I tried to many times. Unfortunate that I wasn’t able to try this app.
This app is the best 5/5
I’ve been using for a month now , the people are nice and when I need answers there’s always someone here to help me
Love it! 5/5
User friendly and love how I can share with my partner.
Not great 1/5
App always has glitches, changing data. Not worth the membership.
Amazing app! Literally right on point for everything!
Signing Up 2/5
By sammie ;(
I recently downloaded this app in hopes of tracking my period, but when I went to sign in it said my password and email weren’t correct? I retried and now when I try to sign up it says too many tries and it’s not allowing me to do anything.
It’s good 5/5
I like this app. It keeps track of my period, ovulation. Normally, I never remember when my period is due. So the app is very helpful for me. And it also tells you the ovulation days if you want to get pregnant or opposite.
Too busy now 1/5
I’ve had this app for years, but they keep updating it with “new features” and now it’s just a jumbled mess of stuff I don’t need on the screen. I’m young and generally good with technology, and even I have a hard time finding the button to track and log. I just want to track my periods and see it on the calendar – that’s literally it. Nothing more. They’ve tried turning it into a convoluted social media app of sorts, and it makes it much harder to just simply log a period. Hate this app now.
Love Glow 5/5
Glow has been very beneficial to me.
One of my favorite apps! 5/5
I appreciate the information provided within the app without even going Premium. Not only are you able to log your cycle, but you’re given detailed information about it’s aspects.
The most accurate app by far 5/5
I use SIX different fertility / menstrual cycle trackers, because my period is irregular. Glow has been the easiest and most accurate by far. If a category in the log is not relevant to me (I don’t drink or smoke), I can customize it so that option doesn’t show up for me to fill out. The charts averaging my cycle lengths is so helpful. I don’t like how they keep asking if I want to upgrade, but if that’s my only complaint, they’re doing amazing!
Great app 5/5
Excellent tool for help tracking when Aunt Flo is going to visit.
Loved the app but it’s getting annoying 2/5
It keeps randomly shutting down on me. I’ll be in the middle of writing a post in the community and it just crashes. It’s getting irritating. Also, the premium offer/ad pops up way too much. I understand once a day but it constantly pops up.
