I’m sure it works for some 2/5
I like how my charts look, but I hate nearly everything else about this buggy, ridiculous app. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to email support. And now they want you to pay a monthly fee to use their full range of services. Currently trying other apps out to see if I can find something better that doesn’t frustrate me so much.
I Love this app! 5/5
I have been using Kindara for over 2 years to track my periods and ovulation and used it to get pregnant. Love this app!
Easy to use 5/5
There are plenty of options to make your charting system your own in this version.
Great app. Disappointed in requiring subscription 3/5
I love this app. I’ve been using it for several years and it’s amazing. I love the ease of charting with it and I love being able to talk to other women about our cycles and journeys in TTC or TTA, but with this recent change now not only can I not track all the symptoms I was but I can’t access the community. Suddenly changing the app and locking those users who have been part of it for a long time and now requiring payment.... this is not okay and I’m highly disappointed in kindara for doing this. Won’t be recommending it like I use to because of this.
A must! 5/5
This app helped us conceive for the first time! Easy to use, navigate, and full of extremely helpful information. A must for anyone trying to get pregnant!💕💙
Great way to keep track 5/5
Great way to track everything when trying to become pregnant. I put in the results of my ovulation tests daily and it would help me track when and if I would menstruate. You are able to place the days you menstruated and every time you have intercourse which help me organize things. I would suggest this app to any female.
Great interface 5/5
By AC Chicago Cardinal
Enjoyed all the options and found the interface very friendly. The ovulation estimates were also pretty accurate (I got backup confirmation from also tracking cervical fluid quality and temp); I was especially impressed because I have an irregular cycle and the app automatically tailored it to my custom cycle.
It worked two months and I’m pregnant
Great intentions! 3/5
By Eliza A Bennet
I love the purpose and goals of this app! Tracking is an amazing tool when both TTAvoid Pregnancy and TTC! The community is so supportive and share such good insight and guidance with one another. The app itself has some kinks/issues including only letting you share your chart once per cycle or not letting you customize your chart enough.
Also Wink links perfectly with Kindara! Best BBT thermometer I've ever used.
Thankful for Kindara 5/5
Kindara has been a huge help to my husband and I on our fertility journey. I’m so thankful for this tool that allows us to easily track my cycle. I’m able to record all the data that’s important to us, and because we can sync it on both of our phones, we can both stay up-to-date. It’s nice to have a birth control/fertility awareness option that we do together!
Easy to use! 4/5
It was quite easy to use. I only put in the information I wanted. Worked out well.
Got me pregnant! 5/5
I don't think I would have charted without this app. After watching my cycle through 10 months of setbacks (endometriosis, fibroids) I knew exactly when my cycle had gotten back to normal. And sure enough, I'm pregnant now, for the first time, at age 41! I'll continue to track in case of problems, and if we have to try again, I've got what I need.
PS after having my beautiful son, this app helped us get pregnant again, and after a miscarriage or two, we now have a little girl, too. I'm continuing to use the app to keep track of my cycles as I approach menopause.
☺️ user turned 😥 2/5
I learned how to chart using kindara almost a year ago. I loved the app then and would probably give it 5 stars at that point. I have been somewhat indifferent about the updates thus far, but the most recent 3-4 updates have been extremely glitched (each one meant to fix a previous glitch seems to create a new one). I’m extremely disappointed about kindara’s move toward paid premium features. I agree with another reviewer that this is particularly unfair to ongoing TTA-ers. Who would just have to continually pay vs a person TTC only needing the app until pregnancy is achieved. The feature I am the most disappointed that kindara is removing from the free version is unlimited custom data. Any of the other things are just kinda meh to me. I’m very strongly considering looking for a new app or even going to paper charting if I don’t find one that’s as comprehensive as kindara. But I would be incredibly sad to lose the kindara community over these things, but (I'm thinking because of a new glitch) I cant access the community right now anyway. $4.99/mo is far to steep a price for the features offered, especially considering the glitches.
New upgrades and premium/good public ruined app 1/5
By Sad about premium
I’ve been using Kindara for several years and have become especially close to about 5 or so women on the community who also have severe Endometriosis and are trying to conceive. Two of them overcame their infertility and gave birth to their healthy babies this past year, one is halfway along in her IVF pregnancy, and the rest of us have now moved on to IVF in order to have children. I love Wink and ordered one as soon as it was available-it’s incredible and saves a lot of time. I’ve noticed Kindara hired some new high-level employees last year and since then got greedy, asking users to pay to use the app (when we’ve already paid for Wink) and then playing around with the app and ability to track one’s daily data, with endless bugs and issues since around Thanksgiving of 2017 (what an inconvenient and stressful time to roll out such an overhaul guys!!!) and messing up the community (as of today it seems the app won’t let me login to connect with the other ladies I’ve become so close to over the past few years-I’m freaking out). Please, please consider fixing your customer service and revert the app back to the way it was before the 6.1 version.
Amazing app 5/5
Love this best way to keep track of my body’s cycle
Easy to use! 5/5
Have been using several apps to chart my cycle and this one had been a huge help especially due to ease of use. Data entry is quick and predictions were usually accurate.
Love this! 5/5
So helpful and so simple!
Used to be 5 star 2/5
I used to love Kindara. Swore by it, got pregnant using it, recommended it to every single person I came across who was trying to have a baby. Not anymore.
They started "improving" it. Every time they would push out features it would cause horrible problems for existing users. Duplicating data, or worse, deleting data. I experienced both on more than one occasion.
But it was worth it to stick around because Kindara had the best community, hands down.
Whether you were TTC or TTA or pregnant or just tracking periods, there were women out there to bond with. The TTC community was pretty fantastic. I was happy to have a group of women to go through the highs and lows of trying to achieve pregnancy. I'll never meet most of them, but I was privileged to be part of their journey.
The new "premium" changes have destroyed most of that community. Charts take forever to load and it's difficult to find the charts you want to see, and wait forever for comments to load and then load again and again as you can no longer just scroll through an entire chart. Everything is clunky and awkward. The app has lost it's polish and ease of use.
Most recently I got an email letting me know I have 1 day to subscribe lose access to extended charting, which has been free for years. Sure, they sent out something several months ago that talked about their ridiculous new monthly payment structure - which makes no sense for 3 out of 4 of the communities who use Kindara and smacks of being a greedy money grab - so it's not unexpected.
But at the time of the initial premium announcement they said that Wink owners would get a free year. Apparently, according to customer service today, the original Wink owners - the ones who paid for a product that didn't deliver until almost a year after the promise date - are not grandfathered in. Even though this is not indicated on the FAQ which just states that Wink purchasers get a free year with no mention of when the Wink was purchased. I would have started complaining earlier if that had been made clearer.
So use at your own risk, don't expect appreciation, you are simply a monthly fee to them. Most everyone I know refuses to do the subscription service and will now only use Kindara as a free chart maker and will use FB to replace the community that we've lost.
I'm giving 2 stars, 1 for the free charts and 1 for the Wink and it's ability to store temps and send via Bluetooth. Two years ago I would have given them 5 stars without pause.
It's heartbreaking to lose Kindara as an all-in-one resource.
Awesome app 5/5
This app has help me a great deal! If you are looking for a great way to keep up with your cycle and charting this is the app to use
Great Customizable Tracking Options! 5/5
The app is very flexible and lets the user determine the level of detail to which she wants to track her cycle. I love that it’s customizable!
Good Tool for Tracking Cycle 5/5
This app has been helpful in giving me a general idea of when I will start my period and when I will ovulate. I used an ovulation kit as a more accurate way to figure out when I was ovulating. Two months after using Kindara and the ovulation kit together, and I’m now expecting! :) I especially like how you can use this app to enter notes each day and keep track of things like cervical fluid, spotting, intercourse, etc.
Great app 5/5
Great for tracking. Easy to use great visuals.

This app is a fantastic tool for anyone who is trying to get pregnant. Very easy to understand, helped me learn more about my body, and it was all done with a nice sense of humor.
Love it 5/5
Easy to use
LOVE this app! 5/5
Love how simple it is to input and read data. It really covers every aspect of fertility—with as much or as little detail as you want to use.
Keep track, easily! 5/5
It’s nice to see all my data in one place!
Excellent app! 5/5
I practice NFP and I've used Kindara for 45 cycles now to successfully avoid pregnancy. Love this app!
Wonderful. Used 3x, got 3 babies 5/5
I used this app for 3 months in the spring of 2015, 2 months in 2016, and 1 month in 2018; all three times have led to almost immediate pregnancy.
Great App 5/5
I love this app! Very easy to use.

There are so many options within the app!
Excellent Tracker 5/5
Easy to chart, read and predict the monthly cycle. Helps organize data so easy to track and make plans!
It WAS Getting better 2/5
I have had a love/hate relationship with this app. A few times I have started to switch because they rolled out something new that didn’t work quite right. At the moment I am having an issue with data being erased. After I input the data for the day, I check my chart and it has deleted half of the information for the previous day, so I have to try to remember it and input it again. Sometimes it will delete data from a week or two previously which is annoying because I won’t remember what was going on that day and the data is lost. Now with the premium option they will be taking away the ability to have more than 4(!) custom data fields. I track so many things in this app and am not willing to pay for a subscription to do things that I have been doing for free. If that happens, it might be time to switch for good. It is a shame. This was the best fertility app I had come across, but if it comes down to it, I will just track it myself instead of pay.
Great app, great resource 5/5
App has resources and instructions for how to use.. Great tool to keep track of your cycle and ovulation!
I loved this app, it effectively helped me predict when I would have my period. I used it mainly to track my period, never really used it for charting but since I’ve had my first born I want to use it for charting but I HATE having to pay for the use of some features. I just want to chart I don’t want to have to pay for features that would be helpful..I’m highly disappointed. Most likely would need to download a different app
Horrible updates!!! 2/5
It used to work so smooth, now it takes forever to load charts, some charts you can't see, cannot delete comments just horrible!! Fix this! The only reason i'm giving it 2 stars is for the community they are amazing!
Love it, buttttt 3/5
Love this app. However, will not be paying for it if it comes down to that. I see a lot of other women feel the same way, sooooo I hope you’re listening Kindara!
Great App 5/5
I live this app for tracking all my fertility signs. Very user friendly!!!

By Hachi's Mom
I have used other apps before and this is by far the best one. I have learned so much about myself by tracking my cycles on it! It's so detailed but extremely easy to read and understand. I will continue to use this app and have been sharing my love for it with everyone :-)

Super Helpful!! 5/5
Lots to learn and track here — excellent work! Happy I have the app!
Great app 5/5
I wish it were better 3/5
This app has the potential to be so much more than it is. But it isn’t. The controls don’t allow for hiding unwanted chart options. Some couples don’t need “protected” as an option, others don’t need “insemination.” Putting “unprotected” as a euphemism is silly too. But the fact that “withdrawal” is even an option is just sad. Having it there just perpetuates the spreading of misinformation. And the section is prominent, so don’t open it in a public place unless you want to share your intimate life with others.
This app was supposed to be the great one. I have a paid app that also has a free, with ads option that I use reliably called, MyDays. It works so much better. I tried this one out while using them in tandem. MyDays still wins even though it doesn’t show a completed chart, just data or a calendar.
The UI on this is not intuitive. It has the least used items in the most prominent place on the data entry page. The important things like the temp section cannot be accessed while sleepy. The area is so tiny, one has to be wide awake before entering anything. And the chart view, while copying nearly square for square the STM charts, still makes unfortunate color choices. The color for the week or so of fertility is of all colors...pink and red. The menstrual colors are peach. Um. No. But remember in data section, if you need to press one of three choices for cervix height, firmness, and openness, you have all the space you could ever want. It is a big open, almost grid-like section that eventually will have three dots checked.
In the end, it still doesn’t give all the info you need. If you miss taking your temp, don’t bother looking at the chart. It has no idea how to chart on mucous and cervix alone. Ugh.
But, I still have to give it 3-stars. There is nothing inherently wrong with it. If you put all of the information in, it will produce a pretty smart looking chart. If other people need to look over your chart, this is the app to make one. So, this app is really just digital paper charts, with pretty colors.
I wish I could give a more optimistic review, but so far, this is what they have given us to work with. Please do better, Kindara.
Great app to help track 5/5
Kindara has been so helpful in keeping track of period, symptoms, ovulation and more. It’s apps like this that make me grateful for technology
