Tracking is good, community is not /: 1/5
The tracking function of this app is awesome but the community function is not so great. I used to enjoy it but it seems that lately people are becoming more and more rude and there is more trolls who lie on their posts and are just trying to get a response out of people. Someone even told me I’m ignorant and called me multiple names over my opinion on something. She told me to go “F” myself and multiple other things but never got deleted. Her name is @Cheyanne if glow would actually do anything about it. I’m over it. It’s upsetting. I had to delete this app because of the negativity.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP 1/5
They steal money period. Requested a refund for an unauthorized purchase. In this economy, I can’t afford to have purchases come out of my account. I’m a performing artist and I’ve lost all of my work due to covid-19. This company is scamming. I’m so upset.
Glow-AMAZING app!:-) 5/5
By Highly Midkiff
This app not ONLY is beautifully designed but is well organized and offers everything you could want for women’s health: facts,data and most importantly a safe space to learn and grow! A truly amazing app! I don’t know what I’d do without it. Thank you!
One Cycle with this app and we’re pregnant! 5/5
I have tracked my period for years with an app called “Flo” and it did well for that. When I tried to use it for it’s “trying to conceive” portion and tracking ovulation, it was a let down. After our first cycle not getting pregnant, I downloaded “Glow” and purchased both a pack of OPKs and a BBT (basal body temperature thermometer). I logged all of my period data into Glow that was in Flo and it immediately said a much later ovulation date than Flo had predicted (aka hubby and I at the point I was ACTUALLY ovulating, we were taking a break from being rabbits, missing it completely). I tracked and tested with Glow and found my accurate ovulation window and sure enough we found out today we are pregnant! If you’re TTC this is your app!!!! (and PreMom app with their BBT, was a huge help).
Good info, but a little spammy with constant upgrade ads 4/5
I appreciate the info this app is providing me. It’s fairly easy to use—but cluttered with two much info and constantly advertising the upgrades. It would benefit from some white space and simplification.
Best tracker out there 5/5
I wanted to track moods and symptoms to see how they correlate with my period and it’s amazing for that. I’ve been using it for 6 years now to track my period and I hope it works just as great for pregnancy planning.
Can’t log my period?!
Helps with ovulation 5/5
This helps with ovulation. Haven’t been pregnant for 3 years.
By The girlnextdoor2u
Easy to use. Love all the features! I want to add a picture of my partner but can't now. Help!
Accurate but too much Community 3/5
The fertility tracking was accurate - I got pregnant after only three months of trying - and I really liked the functionality of adding pictures of multiple ovulation tests so you could compare side-by-side. The biggest downside of this app for me is the Community section. I with there was a way to hide it (if there is, it’s not obvious to me). Everything the app posts is flooded with women posting - not commenting on the article, etc., but posting photos of their pregnancy tests. It gets annoying when that’s all you see. It’s also unsettling for someone who’s TTC with a first baby to read about women who’ve tried for YEARS with no luck. I know we all need support, but it would be better to make the community section something users seek out vs putting it at the front and center of everything, so we can choose what comments and topics we see.
Love it 5/5
I absolutely love this app it helps me keep track of my period and moods.
Great but it’s not quick and lags!? 3/5
The app used to be very fast to save all input information but in the last few months it takes forever to save anything!
Great Before Updates over the last few years 2/5
This app was so much better when it was simpler. Now there are loads of pop-ups, adds, and things like remind me of a gambling slot machine. It is just overwhelming now. I loved it when I started using it 6 years ago, and now it is it just overwhelming to the senses.
Download This App !!! 5/5
I used this app to connect with women, track menstrual cycle & pregnancy. You can ask for advice on topics from relationships, children, pregnancy & etc.
Too much advertising for premium 2/5
By Liz Arezina
If you’re a chill mom who just wants to track some symptoms and see what size fruit your baby is, this probably isn’t the app for you.
It’s full of annoying pop ups and brightly colored buttons pushing the premium version. I get wanting to up sell but dear God.
Also a bit of feature creep. They have tried to cram everything imaginable into the app that any mom could ever want. Because of this, it’s just information overload.
Look somewhere else especially if you don’t plan on upgrading.
Keeps crashing 4/5
I usually love this app but I tried logging on today and it kept crashing!! Saw update so I updated it but it STILL keeps crashing
App Issues 1/5
Unable to keep app open. It closes down within 10 seconds.
Keeps crashing today
Force closing 4/5
Love the app but keeps force closing even After update.
Great app 5/5
Does Not Recognize Pregnancy or Miscarriage 3/5
I have been using this app since 2014 to track my cycle. Since getting married in 2018 I have been using this app to help predict when I am fertile.
In June 2019 I had a positive pregnancy test. Unfortunately that pregnancy ended about a week after the positive test, but this app has no way of marking that it was a pregnancy and miscarriage, not just a long cycle. I put in a daily log that i had a positive pregnancy test, but that did nothing to change predictions.
Since then my cycles have been very abnormal (due to hormone rebalancing and depression/weight gain) and the app just doesn’t recognize or register why.
there needs to be a way that periods can be put on hold and pregnancies, no matter how short, are recognized - and predictions are altered because of that data.
Worst App 1/5
This app don’t view what’s being put on the website and delete post without reason! I have seen nude children and people showing body parts. This app also allows under age people here! It does not support people of color!No one has become any closer to getting pregnant. This app try to sell items that don’t work! It needs a lot of improvement!
I live this app!!! Keeps it right on track and even reminds me to drink water. Love it!
I use it every day 5/5
It definitely helps me to be more informed and focused on my cycle.
Not accurate 1/5
I’ve been using this app for months TTC and it’s always off. I switched to another app and was pregnant within the first cycle.
Too Much Beta 3/5
Three updates in forty-eight hours tells me that we’re being used as your guinea pigs and automatically knocks off a star.
Nothing but drama 1/5
I just read a review from 19h ago and I can vouch that everything this person said is the truth!! The admins will let a group of “regulars” bully, push around, and pick on people. If you are pro life. Nope. This app isn’t for you. If you and your significant other have an age gap, nope. This app isn’t for you. If you are a trump supporter.. NOPE. This app isn’t for you.
I have seen innocent women make a post in one of their rooms where the rules are strict, and the women in that group will be sure to let you know that the topic doesn’t belong. They will be extremely rude, and disrespectful about it. It happened to me the first time I ever made a topic and instead of telling me nicely that the topic didn’t belong, they were very very rude about it. I’ve seen so many cases where someone will post in that group without knowing the rules, and here comes all the mean comments saying how their topic doesn’t belong.
The group of “regulars” will gang up on anyone who they see as a weak target . They will pick on, and bully anyone who they can. I’ve seen them tell the admins “f*** you” , and absolutely dog them out, and admins won’t do anything about it . These women are extremely nasty to other users, yet they never have any consequences which is probably why they do it so much. I think they enjoy going at it with people. There will literally be a post with 300+ comments of nothing but regulars going at it with people saying mean things, and admins don’t give a lick! The women in the community will tell people to “respectfully disagree” but as soon as a trump supporter, or pro life woman has something to say, the women get nasty. And I mean absolutely NASTY. And don’t post asking for advice, because they will take that as a one way ticket to bash you! Then they will use the saying “this is a public forum, so you will get all types of answers”. Yes. That’s true. But that doesn’t mean be downright rude and disrespectful. You can give your opinion without being a jerk, but they must not know this. And yes, it’s true that they will twist your words. They love doing it, and using it to pick on people because they know that there will be no repercussions. I honestly think some of them put on a face for this app, and act like their crap don’t stink. I refuse to believe that these women are like this in real life. But then again, it wouldn’t surprise me.
2 weeks ago, I was suspended and I got an email explaining why. Literally the next day (not even 24hrs) after they emailed me, someone from Another country tried to log into my gmail :). Hm. Explain that, Glow. I USED TO use the same password for my email account and for my glow account, so Glow had my info. Sounds fishy to me. Tread lightly, and carry a big stick. You never know with this app.
NO NO NO NO NO 1/5
By Baked Beans88
DO NOT USE THIS APP. The community feature is an absolute joke. The admins have favorites who are regulars and they allow them to run wild. The community is nothing but bullying, harassment and people attacking others for differing opinions. If you’re being bullied and reach out to the admins for help, they do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!! I was bullied and name called for HOURS. I emailed and reported the other users and the admins allowed this to happen and I received zero help. I begged for help for HOURS WHILE I WAS BULLIED AND HARASSED, and nothing was done to the bullies. This is the most disgusting and toxic app I have ever seen in my life. What is supposed to be an app to empower and encourage women is nothing but an attack on anyone who doesn’t matter to them. The same “regulars” attack women and young girls 24/7... not just on the weekends when the admins are sleeping. The admins allow this behavior EVERYDAY. The admins allow child pornography, MEN to get on the app and spam the community and they NEVER monitor the real issues. If you email and report anything, there’s a very good chance it’s overlooked and the admins will pretend they did something productive. I would rather shove my fist in the garbage disposal than to be on this app any longer. The admins are completely WORTHLESS and don’t do their jobs. These admins have one job, monitor and protect the women on this app. They do NOTHING but condone disgusting and inappropriate behavior. STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP!!!
Use to be great 1/5
I’ve been a part of this app for a few years now. They have a fairly good period tracking portion of the app. The community section of the app use to be wonderful and a place for people to come together and for advice.
Unfortunately over the past year the app has really taken a turn. I’ve witnessed people threatening physical harm and stalking users, finding out their personal information and attacking them. Not only that but there’s even been a post with child pronography in it. When asked for answers from the admin, they simply suspend you and refuse to answer your questions.
I no longer feel safe using this app
We are using Glow across four devices. All at the same time, we have one day past ovulation, today is ovulation, tomorrow is ovulation, ovulation is in 2 days. It’s next to a miracle to get pregnant as it is, following a guide that is this inconsistent is frustrating to say the least. Devs, I don’t know if it’s a data issue or some kind of refresh issue; this clearly is not what users should see.
Republicans Not Wanted 1/5
Do yourself a favor and DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP! The community is full of angry and toxic women. There are a group of abusive girls that get away with everything, and Glow does NOTHING about correcting it. If you have a different opinion then them, they will name call, report you for no reason, get you suspended, make your comments and posts disappear and make your “glowing” experience horrible. I got permanently blocked for talking about a negative incident with a fellow member. Administration left a person to harass me for 12 hours and nothing was done about it or the person who was verbally abusive. If you admit you are a Republican/Independent, just be prepared to be hated and harassed for no reason. What Glow doesn't seem to understand is those same people they protect, are the same ones giving them a bad name, and in return, bad reviews like this one and the ones made before me. It seems Glow doesn’t care that Republican/Independent voters get their period, become pregnant, raise families and HAVE OPINIONS TOO! There is an agenda going on, and nothing you say will change their bias. After my ban a post was made and people were making false accusations about me. Since Glow silenced me, I could not defend myself. I want nothing to do with this horrible app. I have emailed administration seven times to delete my data and community profile, only to be ignored. Their administration is unprofessional and unfair. They have actually told fellow members I know to let the usual suspects bully them. Fighting back would get them into more trouble. How does that make any sense? They say in their fake, robot, generic responses that they strive to make Glow a safe and inclusive place, but they are lying. It’s anything but that. Don’t believe them. I’m now stuck on the outside looking in at people who should be banned enjoying Glow and continuing the cycle of bad behavior. This won’t be corrected until the team will finally delete my account and data like they say they do in some of these responses. With the election coming up, it’s only going to get worse on there, so STAY AWAY! I’d like to thank Glow for doing me a favor and getting me off that terrible energy on there. It’s opened my eyes to how rude, evil and disgusting people can be behind a keyboard and computer screen. Don’t waste your time fighting with them, you’ll never win. Administration clearly have their favorites who can do whatever they want without fears of being even warned for bad behavior. All of this is true. I have saved all my emails and screenshots of the awful things that go on there. They also got into trouble a few years back for selling data. They say in some of these responses that they don’t do that anymore. But check it out, there are articles all over the internet. Bye Glow! You will not be missed. Now get to work and remove my data!
They Sell Data on Abortion’s & Miscarriages 1/5
Caroline, Horrible Customer Service
They I needed help and kept getting a response from the same person who ended up deleting my account and all my information but then still kept all my post and comments up so I had no way of removing them. Your data is not safe on here they’ve had security breaches in addition.
Won’t even open anymore 1/5
I had this app on my iPod 5 and it used to work well. Used to. I haven’t been able to open the app for a few months now.
I have a newer iPhone and wanted to move my data over but can’t do it because it won’t open. What a waste of my time.
Needs to be free 5/5
Simple to use and a great tracking chart. Wished it didn’t cost to use full app.
Disappointing changes 2/5
Suddenly “needs” (forces) personal data that I’m not comfortable adding to change your status. Not set up to adjust for a pregnancy loss (even an early one) and cannot be adjusted to change your ovulation date if you want to manually correct. Incredibly disappointing as I’ve used this for awhile and overall liked it. Will not use anymore.
The layout is so confusing. It’s very messy and I have no idea where I’m at and what’s going on. I’m not even sure if my period is logged in. It got me so tired I just gave up. I wanted to try it out since I have been using flow for a while and wanted to compare to see if my ovulation days were accurate. But I love flow everything is orderly and simple. Glow you need to hire someone to make this app a lot more simple and easy to navigate.
Very very nifty 5/5
Have you ever wished you could track all of your monthly physical and mental health symptoms to know for sure, when they happened and why? This app allows you to track all of that and much more. After 3 months of tracking your monthly cycle symptoms you can easily compare and understand exactly what happens and exactly when. It’s really an amazing app and well made too. So much customization and personalization. Every woman needs this app!! I love when I’m at a docs appointment and they ask all those questions like “when was the last time you had sex?” Or “what day was the last day of your most recent period?”. It’s a total game changer. Also it’s helps to know exactly what to tell your doctor. When you can see your period is changing or acne is worse than it was however many months ago you’ve since tracked it, you’ll never have to wonder if it was “all in your head” or “maybe your not remembering it right”. This app with the subscription is worth it for any woman out there that wonders about their ever changing monthly symptoms.
A hassle to use app 1/5
I have been using your app for a couple of years now. And it hasn’t been a great experience.
There are too many pop ups and adds and constant bombardment of filling in unnecessary info.
It’s not easy just to be able to add the first day of the cycle. When you click on the calendar, you get bombarded to add a log of too much info. And it’s not intuitive just to be able to click on the day.
It’s really a hassle to use this app. I’ve only stayed with it because it has my history. But honestly every month when I need to log my cycle, it feels like a chore to do so with this app.
Great App 5/5
Amazing app. Pretty accurate! Love the active members! Very helpful
Love this app 5/5
It’s absolutely one of the best apps I even downloaded to my phone
Came here from Eve. being told by the developers and reviews to come here, still sex sex sex sex sex. Bloody heck.
Love it 5/5

Best application ever, So helpful ❤️
Posters beware!! 3/5
App itself is great for tracking cycles and all that Jazz BUT women in the forums are disgustingly rude and I had to delete after the first post I made because all it was was a bunch of bitter rude women. Glow.. please monitor your posters!!!!!
So complicated 2/5
I just want something to track my periods, which got harder and harder to do with every update. Why is there a social media component, and why is it easier to find than where to enter my cycle info? Why do I have to read a headline about getting fatty liver disease when this is an app for reproduction? Feels sleazy.
VERY RUDE USERS 2/5
I don’t understand why so many women on this app are so rude. It’s getting out of hand. It seems to always be the same women as well. WHY DONT THEY GET REMOVED OR BANNED?! It’s sickening the way they talk to people and nothing happens to them but if you simply as one of them why they’re acting that way your comment gets deleted. I LOVED this app the first time I had it downloaded. Not so much anymore.
I really love the app 3/5
However, it’s a bit confusing to post a comment.
rude community 1/5
the ladies on this app are rude and miserable.. ask one question they dont agree with you gt called all types of names. and respond with rudeness
Love it 5/5
