My opinion

My Days and Ladytimer are too basic for my taste:

  • On My Days you can only write notes; there are no symptoms nor moods and you need to upgrade to get access to setting password and enabling notification.
  • On Ladytimer you can’t add symptoms nor moods and the graphics are not attractive and the colors not interesting.

The best free cross-platform period and ovulation tracker apps are Pink Pad and P Tracker.

  • Pink Pad is presented like a diary. Neat and graphically pleasant. I love the fact that it uses the averages method. It was actually designed by a woman 🙂 I also like the fact that it proposes a sister app: BabyBump after a woman gets pregnant instead of having to look for another application: There is a sort of logic continuity between the apps… BUT an upgrade is necessary to get more moods and charts.
  • P Tracker is a well presented calendar and very easy to use. A P Tracker Companion for Men exists for iPhone only and permits to sync some info that will allow a man know when to understand mood swings 🙂 and a Deluxe version for Android is on the way. (Deluxe for iPhone is available.) The thing with P Tracker is that it set a 4 period day by default which make you have to adjust any change manually every month and has a fixed 14 days luteal phase… making it good for women with regular periods.

Honestly, I’m using both to see which one will predict things for me better. Which one is your favorite?
