Claire3513 - Paramount to My Conception
Update: I had no idea this app turned into a pregnancy tracker after you miss a period. Amazing!!! Adding 1 more star for a full 5 star review. I still think the free content is far better than the paid content and the anonymous chat should go away, so much negativity there.
The free features of this app are a million times more valuable than the paid features. The period and ovulation tracker was paramount to my husband and I conceiving - I’m terrible at keeping track of these things on my own (usually my period just sneaks up on me). The symptom tracker and the “dive into your cycle day ##” feature were especially helpful in recognizing that I was showing signs of being pregnant, rather than just experiencing PMS. Because the free features were so helpful, I tried the trial of the paid version and was very disappointed in what it included. Especially the “chat with other future moms”...oh my goodness, get rid of this, it’s just a platform for women to work each other up into frenzies over trying to conceive. It’s comical at first, “anyone else want to conceive so bad they imitate symptoms?” and then sad, “I’m crying at work right now because two other women are pregnant and I’m not”, and if you keep reading it starts eating away at you...everything posted is so negative.
Ricecake2003 - love it!
this app is super useful for tracking periods, and has given me mostly accurate predictions so far! it’s been off by a day or two a couple times when i first started using it because it wasn’t adjusted to my cycle yet, but since then i haven’t had any issues. i love the insights where it gives info about my period and the different changes that come along with a period, and i especially love that you can comment anonymously on posts and get help from and give help to the community. by far, my favorite thing about the Flo app is that you can have it give you reminders to drink water, take meds, and weigh yourself if that is something that you’re concerned about! the reminders are super helpful for me as my meds are for adhd, so i need a reminder so i actually remember to take them lol! the only thing that i would adjust is that my water bottle has metric markings, but i live in america, so i have to convert the metric to ounces to track my water because the only way to use metric for water is to switch the entire app over to metric. this isn’t a huge deal because google is a pretty good converter but it’s just something that i’ve noticed. overall, this is a great app and i’ve recommended it to friends and family, and now i’m recommending it to you!
Naughty nixon - It’s nice but...
So I used this app for my period And it was great up until my period change and I came on a week early which was perfect for my weekend away because we were planning to get pregnant and my ovulation date was set for a specific day. Well I was on my period a day or two longer so I figured it would probably change my ovulation date. Well my trip was set to be at least about 2 to 3 weeks away and I kept checking the app to make sure and to see if my ovulation date was going to change well it didn’t change it stay the same and make sure that I refresh my app just in case and it stayed the same. Now the day I get to my destinations for my trip is my ovulation day that was on the app that’s what we were depending on. Three days later I go on the app to mark the fact that we made love and the ovulation date changed to the day before I arrived on my trip. Immediately I was upset because it seems as though we may have missed the ovulation day due to the fact that the app didn’t update until after my ovulation date that was set originally. So I deleted the app because of that. It’s very upsetting when you’re trying to get pregnant and your ovulation date just seems to change along with your fertile days changes I just think that that is something that they need to look into I no longer want to use this app.
kathynicole - Extra features only available with premium
I originally downloaded this app to track my period and my symptoms. I do still like it for that, but I also really loved when more features were added such as giving helpful bits of info about the whole cycle. This info wasn’t always that helpful for me because most of it I knew already, but I do think it’s helpful for younger people. I didn’t learn much about the menstruation cycle in school, and I just can’t imagine much has changed. It was also helpful that they gave you tips seemingly based on the symptoms you plugged in. However today I went to log my symptoms and noticed they added in stories on why we get cramps, etc., but they are all only available to premium users. And when I went to the screen that used to have helpful articles, mostly all of the information is locked for premium users. This is all information that should be provided for free. Now kids are still going to have to wade through inaccurate information on the internet because apps like this are charging for the most basic information. I understand that you need money to survive, but information menstruation shouldn’t only be available to people with money. Also you would think they could get a moderator for the chat rooms or a professional to help answer questions, but no. So the chat rooms and answers are inaccurate and overrun with teens who don’t know anything because apparently female anatomy is only available to people with money. It’s such a shame.
Fairysparkles6 - Definitely the best period app.
After I got my first period I used the same app for years to track it. It never predicted my period right. For the longest time I just figured I was super irregular as many girls are when they start there period, but eventually I realized It said I was consistently late by approximately the same number of days every cycle. I just dealt with it for awhile. When I finally decided to check for a better period tracking app I found Flo. This app is SO MUCH BETTER!! It usually predicts my period pretty accurately, sometimes spot on. When my cycle shifts it always makes adjustments and often becomes more accurate. I also love that it doesn’t mark your period late until A certain number of days after your cycle was supposed to start (I think 5, which is the “official” number of days that make a period considered late. It doesn’t just mark it late when your period doesn’t start the day it was predicted to. I was especially impressed when I missed a period after my wisdom tooth surgery and when I logged my next period the predictions continued to be accurate immediately after. It seems like the developers did a great job on the actual software as well as put lots of thought, research, and expertise into it. It’s a great app!!
Milia G - Currently On a Free Trial
I’ve had Flo in the past and loved it. I didn’t have a phone for a year so I just recently got the app again and noticed a lot of changes, including that some features are only available through a payment. The payment is only around 14$ for the entire year.
I don’t think that’s so bad but if it’s out of budget I understand. The features on the free trial are pretty awesome so far, it’s like having access to a gynecologist because the information you give about your period has so much feedback. It’s really surprising what the app tracks and the amount of feedback you get about symptoms, tips / tools, workout ideas, food recommendations, yoga, meditation, and self- assurance. I wanted to take the time to write a review because I was really hesitant to redownload the app with the reviews talking about payments but I’m glad I did and it appreciating the free trial so far. If you’re unsure try the 1 month free trial and see how you like it.
Bonus for the awesome private community conversations that are available to everyone, so that you’re able to anonymously speak with other women/ girls on the app and freely ask questions or help respond to others. It’s just really awesome. I appreciate the app
lauritaGarcia - Great for period tracking only
I downloaded this app to track my periods, was great for that and plenty of little helpful insights/articles on the feed.. I used it to help conceive as well. Once I actually became pregnant and switched to “pregnancy mode” the little helpful insights diminished to almost none, maybe one every few weeks.. what would frustrate me also would be when I would click on the “For You” and it would show an insight article but then disappear before I got the chance to click on it. (Happened about a 100 of times on different occasions.) also the app doesn’t really have any symptoms tracker differentiations for the pregnancy mode... which seems kind of bizarre. Another thing is that in pregnancy mode it doesn’t say anything about the development of the baby at however many weeks you are. Not even a brief little description of what’s going on in your body at this time or a brief description of the development changes your baby is experiencing.. nothing at all.. I’m a first time mom so I use (5) different pregnancy apps to kind of bring all the information together, given that not all say the same thing or some say things others don’t and/or are more informative. I find myself using this app less and less as it isn’t very helpful in the pregnancy mode. I am currently 27 weeks so I’ve used it from the very beginning and nothing is getting better about it.. hopefully this review is helpful
Jamieeeeeee21 - Too many ads
I only want notifications that tell me when to anticipate my menses start date or ovulation, but I constantly get notifications like “Feeling frisky today? Your hormone levels are up!” “Set up a workout today” “It’s normal to feel down when your hormones drop” and other inappropriate statements that are embarrassing to receive when I am showing a work colleague something on my phone. I reported the issue to Flo and they said I had to turn off notifications altogether! It’s ridiculous how we cannot filter what we want to be notified of. Also, at the doctor’s I was asked the first date of my LMP. That’s what Flo is for. It took a full minute to open the app and click out of the annoying in-app pop ups that try to get me to use their features when all I wanted to do was go to my calendar. I don’t want to speak to your health advisor or whatever else you want me to do. I want a simple, unmessy, easy app to track my period. Lastly, I’ve been having issues opening the app and all I see is a huge ad saying “87% off Flo premium. Click next” and there is NO X at the corners to get away from the page. The only thing to click is “next” but I don’t want your premium. I have to close the entire app and reopen it to get the ad to disappear. Your app has a lot of people using it but it seems to be devolving into something sloppy and profit-hungry. I miss the days where it was a no-hassle, modest period tracker.
simply0413 - Amazing but needs a touch.
Don't get me wrong, Flo is amazing and you'll never use another app after you download this but it could use a few touches. The one idea I have isn't really important but if you want to have more fun with the app you should also have the choice of using your own photo for a background picture. Doing this would make it a little more fun along with being able to choose the color of the circles or bubbles. Also, it would be cool if people could make their own articles for everyone to read but make a separate column you can click on, incase viewers don't want to read other people's. And lastly, the articles usually talk about tampons. Not everyone wears them including me. It would be great if you could tell everyone how they work and if it hurts. I personally am really sensitive about "down there" and it would be great to know what it's like. Or even talk more about pads. Right now I read things I can on the internet and see how to insert them and everything. But I rly think sticking something up there is really nasty. Again just my opinion. But overall this game is really good. If it was just a little more fun and fit for everyone I would be giving it 5 stars. But hopefully something I said can come true. To Whom Ever It Regards, - Unknown☺️
GeekyGirl007 - New update ruined it..
There should really be a way to turn off virtual assist and my daily insights. Some of us came to this app because it was clean and simple, all these new updates and features are ruining that. It’s getting more and more intrusive and cluttered with every update. I don’t need or want all this crap on my screen. If I could toggle it off it’d be great but they give you no options, just shove all this stuff in your face. Why can’t anything be simple? Why do we need advanced AI and health stories on the front page? We don’t! Just a simple app that tracks and predicts our cycles and does it well. Please get rid off all this extra junk or at least give those of us who don’t want it a way to toggle it off. I hate this app now and will be finding a new one. To the developers- please don’t ask me to contact you for a solution. It seems to be your canned answer to every negative review and I will not be contacting you. If there is a solution to this issue or you have future plans to fix this issue, please just let me know here so the whole community can see it too. Nothing is going to be fixed in this situation by me contacting you. You used to have amazing customer service and really care about your users needs. Not anymore, there hasn’t been a genuine reply to any users feedback in a long time. This use to be a great app with caring devs behind it, but I can’t say that is true anymore sadly. Zero stars.
darion smith - 2+ Year User and still Loving it !
I have been using this app for awhile now and have been very dedicated to tracking my body's cycle. With this app I avoided pregnancy successfully for 2 years without hormonal birth control by working around my fertility rhythm using the information Flo provided. The longer you use it, the more accurate it it becomes. I think it is essential to track our menstruation. Apps like these can be life changing for women; Reproductive knowledge is empowerment for women. I always enjoy the updates and community sections. Tried other period trackers but I always just come back to Flo because I enjoy the aesthetically pleasing interface and ease of use. This is an app that gets better with time.
Only until recently have I desired more; after giving birth I'm breastfeeding of course, and that can often cause you to go a while without a period. I wish there was a way to log this information as I await to have my cycle again, in a similar manner to flipping a switch for the pregnancy mode. When you look at past data, pregnancy shows up as yellow days in your year calendar. Just a thought. Could continue to aid in accurate predictions if this info was considered.
Thisislexi2 - Pretty good
The reason I downloaded this app was because I have fairly irregular periods. They have always been irregular, but I discovered that I have hypothyroidism which contributes greatly to irregular periods. I am also breastfeeding and have been breastfeeding for 18 months. I do notice that when I take my thyroid medication my periods become a lot more predictable and more normal. So, with that being said I did not expect this app to be spot on for me. I am just not one of those women who have a really predictable cycle. If you have a predictable cycle than this app will work great for you!! It tells you ovulation days so you can try (or avoid) getting pregnant. It reminds you when your period is due which is nice. Since my periods aren’t regular it took about 4-6 cycles to actually get the app to correctly predict my periods which is understandable. It’s important to log all your symptoms because that’s how it tells which phase you are in. This month it said I was supposed to start, but when I updated my symptoms, it changed the date I was due for my period. My period actually came 3 days before it was “due” but still, that’s pretty good guessing with someone who has irregular cycles. I do also love that they have articles you can read that educate you about your body. 4.5 stars.
Sammi578 - Absolutely love, but am a broke college student :/
I’ve had this app for a few years now and can honestly say I love it. It’s helped me with so much, including with figuring out how my medications affected me, where before I was so confused with what was going on. Watching this app evolve has been so cool, and I used to have a subscription in the earlier days, which was super handy. I also just tried the free trial of the newest premium version, which is absolutely amazing, and provided me with so much information that I actually feel somewhat educated on my body and how it works. I am a newfound broke college student and am bummed I don’t have the funds to pay for it right now (which I believe is an essential part to keeping this app running, because though we should have the right to free access about the health of our own bodies, I know I can trust this app based on the knowledge that hundreds of hours of work have been put into this by real doctors, instead of finding less trustworthy and sometimes misleading information floating around the internet). I will continue to be loyal to this app and will also hopefully soon be able to take advantage of the healthcare advice again!
mimi.w_1013 - I use it everyday
I just got this app yesterday and already love it. It’s so easy to use and very informative. Setting up your period (or pregnancy) might be a little confusing at first but once that’s done, you’re fine. I love how precise they try to be and get to know you with surveys (they’re optional). I also love how they give you all different articles to read about (romance, hygiene, body, clothing, exercise, etc.). You also get to chat anonymously with other women and girls - we really help each other out. I could write so much more but don’t want to take up too much time😂. I tried other apps and like this one the best - I would definitely recommend it!! I just finished my period so I don’t know how accurate this will be but based on my calendar at home, it’s right on track. This is the app to use! No app will be perfect, but this is the way to go - i can’t even say how much I love it (weird to be saying about a period app haha!) I’ll update my review once I’ve gotten my next period to see how accurate they are. One thing I don’t like is that they limit how many words/how long your comment can be which gets very annoying so if they can change that, it’d make the app even better.
OtakuCat_14 - Not Alone
Before, I would always keep the details of my sex life, menstrual cycle, and other feminine problems to myself. After Flo, I feel so much more secure and content with all of the aforementioned issues. The app is well-designed and visually pleasing, as well as easy to use and practical in those uses. Not only can you track your period with Flo, you can also access a community page to share stories, take surveys, and read articles. The period tracker itself is very accurate for me and is usually always on point. The period tracker also gives you the details on your ovulation cycle and such, which gives me a sense of security and preparedness. While I don’t use this feature of the app, there is also a pregnancy mode which can track your pregnancy’s phases and tell you about said phases. I’ve come to love the app and it quite honestly bests all of the other period tracker apps I’ve tried. Flo is great for any woman who loves planning and organization, or any girl looking for advice on her first experiences. The community is accepting and welcoming, and all shared stories are anonymous for those who want to vent. Overall, a wholesome app with a feel-good vibe. Definitely a keeper for me.
iLuv302 - Love this app.
So I paid $2 for another app cuz it said it could tell me what phase of my cycle I was in and also send updates to my husband when I was in a new phase and give him heads up for ideas to support me, which is so awesome in theory, but the app is pretty dry, I don’t like the layout, and the insights about the phases weren’t as helpful as I would have liked. AND I could only track certain symptoms at certain times of the month, which is just plain stupid. So I came back to this free app because I like the design and the tracking features because I have random symptoms all month that I will never remember and need to reference at appts.
That said, the ideas behind that other app are great. I would love to have insights about each of the phases and the opportunity to sign my husband up for emails that help him understand my cycle as it happens, too. I would even pay for that. (Not a lot, lol don’t gouge me.)
I never understood much about my period and lady bits until I was older, so this has been very helpful overall. And it is usually pretty accurate at estimating dates (within a few days), even though my period can be really wonky and frequently comes early.
C_Turtles - Good, but having issues (now MORE issues?)
UPDATED CORRECTION: My ovulation week (which happened weeks ago) jumped up an entire week too for. So now my period and ovulation dates are changing for seemingly no reason. This has never happened before. I understand the developer’s response, but I’m still not sure if you’re understanding the issue or if I’m failing to see something. Like I said, I’ve never had issues with this EVER, so why is every single thing changing. My period date. Changed over 6 times in the last few days, and so did my ovulation too. This makes no sense.
I never had issues with this before, but this month, the day on when my period is going to start keeps changing. Every day it gets bumped up to the next day. First it said the 18, then 19, and now it’s up to the 21st. I don’t know if there’s an error occurring in the calendar or what, but it’s really annoying and confusing. I can’t tell what day is the correct day for my period to start, and now I’m worried everything else is wrong or the dates are offset (like for ovulation, as an example).
Note: this has nothing to do with periods being late, as this is many days prior to when my period should even start.
Lyylla - Love this app!
I used MyDays to track my cycle for years, I saw a sponsored ad to try Flo about 2 years ago and it’s been extremely helpful! I’ve always had pretty regular cycles, but this app is so much easier to use and I feel like it’s been very accurate for me. I have been able to successfully time ovulation and conceive my first child with the help of this app! I love the pregnancy mode and the helpful daily insights. One feature I’ve really come to love and appreciate is the insights being more tailored to me. I was a little apprehensive of being asked to identify my race/ethnicity a few weeks ago, but now I’ve noticed that the insights have been so much more relatable and I think that’s absolutely amazing!!! I read so much stuff online about pregnancy and childbirth and my first thoughts are always about how the material relates to certain groups of women, compared to others. I love that the developers have taken this into consideration. I would like to suggest that not only Flo, but more if not all, pregnancy and childbirth resources provide more info and materials for single women or women who are not in traditional man/woman relationships or marriages.
Bikerchick3008 - Almost Perfect
I love this app, and all the options it allows. Especially the symptoms it allows you to add day by day, it really helps me figure out my cycle and how my body is responding to my life. The app is relatively easy to use, and pretty customizable. The two main things that I wish to see updated in this app, is the option for the app to tell you how many days late you are. Currently if you are late, instead of reflecting that, it just keeps pushing your "expected period" date to the next day. I have been trying to find a way to see if i'm missing a setting to add this feature but so far no luck. I really like that feature on other apps so hopefully Flo adds it.
And number two and perhaps the most important, I wish it allowed you to add a PREVIOUS pregnancy. It allows you to go through add previous periods so it can give you an accurate cycle length/prediction, however no options to add previous pregnancies which I think would prove very helpful to the app being able to predict future periods/pregnancies.
Also I would like to have the option to add a personal picture instead of just the avatar but it's not really that big of a deal.
All in all I love this app and highly recommend it!
camymac - Disappointing, to say the least.
I've used this app for years, and I used to swear by it. With recent updates, it's near impossible to enjoy any of the content other than the bare bones period tracking without being bombarded by the 'premium content' label on everything. This app used to be informative and accessible to all which is what drew me to it, but now I can't read an article or my health insights without paying for a subscription, which isn't really an option for me since I don't have money to spend on that.
Flo developers, you'll lose a significant amount of your users through your lack of inclusivity. It's only been more disappointing to come to the app reviews to see the same complaints as me, and also see that your response is always to contact you guys directly. Unless you're making this content more accessible and inclusive, there's no point in saying the same thing to you all through an email or a feedback message directly on the app. I'm sure this review will get the same generic response as you've given most recent reviews, but this app went downhill so suddenly and disappointingly that I can't help but speak my mind.
Will be looking for another period tracker app that isn't constantly telling me I need to have money in order to understand my body.
Aydee221 - Not woman-owned, Paywall is a slap in the face
I’d been using Clue up till now. I read that Flo had some additional tracking options (such as indicating when you change your chosen period collection method and, if applicable, how much you collected). They must have still been rolling out the feature because I didn’t have it or find a way to enable it.
But the paywall is why I’m writing this review. Literally everything except tracking your period and a generally unhelpful and unmonitored community chat is locked behind that $50 subscription. If I track a symptom consistently and the app recommends an article to me, just let me read it. Or at least a portion of it. Don’t immediately hit me with the ad to subscribe. The frequency of that ad alone is enough to make me not want to subscribe.
And don’t get me started on the community chat. It NEEDS to be moderated. There is some straight up harmful garbage there (not all but enough).
I also did some digging and the app is not woman-owned or founded (which is important to me). Some entrepreneur guy founded it and as far as I can tell they don’t use revenue from the app to support any women’s causes.
I think I’ll be going back to Clue, where at least it’s designed by women, for women, and has a more thoughtful paywall.
Alizzard98 - Starting to deteriorate
The app was great a few years ago because all the information that I received from my stats were really useful. However, recently there has been a premium version added to the app (a little pricey for me) and you can’t get away from their ads. Now, when you open the app you have to wait 3 seconds to close their own ads, not ads from other companies, Flo ads. It’s starting to feel like a cookie clicker game where you have to watch their ads to use the app. Also, now when I receive my stats, I have to go through this virtual assistant where I punch in pre-made answers and it seems a bit redundant to me (and at the end they suggest you pay for premium). I have recently switched to the Apple version of Flo in the health app because it has a lot of the same features but you don’t have to be bombarded by their suggestion to pay for a premium version. Really disappointed that the app got to this point because I used to always suggest that my friends use the app, but not anymore. I might be more interested in getting premium but $50 a year or $10 for a month seems a little pricey for something I only really spend about 5 minutes a day on every few days and I worry the premium version might not get me away from more ads to come from Flo.
Abcdefghihklmnopqrstivwxy - Chat Boxes and More (very important)
I’ve had this app for almost a year and I was cool with it and all but they took the chat boxes/comment section away. I understand the articles like up to your daily log ins, but when they had comment sections, you really got to talk to people with similar problems and get advice. Now, it’s just article after article. I used to spend close to an hour on the app in a day but now it’s five minutes to quickly jot my mood. I hope you bring back the comment section because I got a lot of help from it.
Also, update the moods or what you are feeling and the symptoms like headaches backaches. What about stomachaches? They don’t always fall under cramps. And the sleep monitor, you should be allowed to manually input the minutes. I don’t like that it rounds my 26 minutes to 30 when it’s less because it’s not 100% accurate.
Lastly, you should have different times of the day where you ask how we are feeling. Like, at 7-8am you ask our morning mood, then around 11-1pm you ask our mood then because no one is consistently happy from when they wake to when they sleep and no one is angry either. People have periods when their emotions change hourly so that should be taken into account.
Soccer002005 - Love this app ( have a suggestion for the app)
This app is amazing. Has helped me so much through my periods and even if you don’t have your period yet it gives girls great health tip each. My favorite thing about the app is the The community. You can give your opinion, advice, ask or answer questions, tell your story or experience on all different kinds of topics. You can read other people’s questions, experiences, tips etc. and the great thing is is that everyone is Anonymous so you don’t feel ashamed or embarrassed asking a question or something. All my friends use this app and you should too it has changed our lives.
My suggestion is about the Community. I feel like it is a very difficult if you have asked a question and you are going back to see if anyone has answered and you have to try and find the section you wrote it in. I feel like there should be a certain button to press that takes you to all of the questions and things you have every done on the app no matter what topic it is. so you just have all of your questions and answers tips etc. all in one place.
MCGM2430 - No longer worth it
The app was great when I started. After so many years of irregular periods thanks to Depo it finally started to regulate so I downloaded Flo to track my cycles. A few months in I ended up getting pregnant and switched to the pregnancy tracker feature which was really nice. However, I’m now 38 weeks pregnant and suddenly everything is locked and you have to update to premium for. I get that the ‘basic’ tracker features are still free, but this is pretty upsetting. At least having a limited amount of resources still be free for those who are pregnant, such as “Your pregnancy at week __” or “Your baby at week __” would be nice. I’m definitely going to switch to another pregnancy app for the short remainder of my pregnancy. Very sad that I’m literally in the home stretch of my pregnancy and the app developers decide to do this.
Also, please don’t respond with paragraphs upon paragraphs of explanations about how you’re keeping basic features free, the extensive lists of doctors you pull articles from, and your excuses as to why you’re charging so much for “premium” features that have been available for free for quite a while. No one cares, and they can look at your other responses to the upset reviews about this sudden change (for the second time might I add).
Bck223758 - Love it but need some improvements
Even before I discovered that you can text other people it was really helpful. But now that I’m able to contact others anonymously and talk about real world stuff that you would be embarrassed to about outside of the app, it’s a hundred times better. I only wish you could see notifications for when people respond to your comment. Like an social media (I don’t think this is social media) it’s stressful putting something out there in the world and waiting for answers. Especially if it’s important, having to scroll through so much just to learn that you didn’t get a response it’s annoying. Having notifications that tell you if someone liked your comment or commented on it will relieve stress and make things simpler.
Also, if your looking for a period app this one is really cool. It has easy to work period schedules, hooks right up to your iPhone health app and has really cool information. I know I have definitely learned a lot from it, and I feel much better about myself after reading articles on it. It’s also a great community of girls, girls who will stand up for you and are really empathetic and helpful.
inneedofheadspace - I love this app!
As a young woman my goal is to track my period and symptoms and make sure I am healthy and there are no massive changes in my cycle. Little did I know I was getting more than just that! These secret chats have literally saved my life. I talk with other people my age about common insecurities and problems. I feel more confident in my body knowing I am not alone in some struggles. I wish there was no premium because I feel like learning about my body should be free. But I get that without money Flo could not survive so what if Flo gave premium content to everyone and added a feature where you could get a custom period or pregnancy box once a month. It would take some time to get right but I know for sure I would buy it. Women would have to take quizzes on how many products they use in a cycle and what products they prefer and all that. They should also include some type of food maybe fuzzy socks and a book! All things you can personalize. Of course this box would not be cheap but it would be worth it!! And if you think you might be pregnant maybe include a pregnant test! Please consider this ♥️ But all together a great app 👍🏼
crystalv82 - Use it!
I downloaded this app a few years ago and it was super helpful. I used it all the time and it was so great at predicting when my period would start based on patterns of symptoms I logged in previous months. It helped me become more aware of my body and its patterns.
I don’t even have a uterus anymore but I still use this because I can say “why am I exhausted today?” And look and see Flo telling me that my period might start today (I usually log it even though I don’t get it). This is helpful because while I don’t bleed, I still have symptoms and knowing what’s going on and what’s out of the norm has been so helpful.
I never used the paid membership, mainly because it was only a real option after my hysterectomy, but the free version is worth a lot regardless. It has proven to be indispensable for me, especially as someone who never had regular cycles.
I highly recommend Flo. It’s so great if you want to make plans for vacation or special events because you can look ahead at predictions and see that you might need backup on xyz days.
Thanks for keeping me sane, Flo!
CCCat_3p - More of a media maybe?
This whole app is real nice with the tracking part but the “insights” articles should have a separate chat on it (I heard there use to be) but it should totally come back. There’s so many nice people supporting each other and so many people getting answers to their questions on topic or not. For all the consistent off topic chats it would be awesome if there were a separate part where we could make a small chat. I don’t know how I imagine this would be but it would help sort the people with the same questions so if someone does know the answer they don’t have to keep repeating and repeating and repeating themself’s over and over again so they only have to say it once where everyone who had the same question could see it. Also it would be cool if you could have a check box or something in the settings to where you can manage your “don’t show me post like this” so you can say “on or off” so if you don’t want to see the post on that topic now but might change your mind later...I’m not sure how difficult this would be for the people actually making it for but it’s something to wrap your minds around I guess... O.o
Chicken crosser - I Love This App!
I have been using Flo consistently for years! I started using them when I was about 15 maybe 16 (I'm going on 22 now) to better predict my cycles and give me a heads up (I worked and went to school so I didn't always keep track of days) and have never strayed from them. Not only does it track my cycle down to a freaking T-literally always accurate- but I used it during my pregnancy and loved the insights and tools it had for this mode as well! Though it does offer premium now (which I don't personally have) the free version is perfect for a simple tracking app! But don't let the option for premium make you think you can't enjoy all the other things it offers-with the free version I still do certain surveys pertaining to my health and can get basic insight on things I may be concerned about around my cycle dates-if anything premium just gives you a bit more so if you want that bit more than I'm sure premium would be great. Overall THANK YOU for keeping the app as amazing with the free version! I hope this never changes!
Nattt22222 - Great if you’re able to pay for premium
When I first downloaded Flo, I had the premium membership, and it was great. The chat boxes were really insightful, and the tracking provided me with lots of useful information about my health. However, when my circumstances changed and I had to cancel the premium membership, it is literally just a calendar on your phone where you can log your period and a few symptoms, and read a couple of articles. I understand that Flo requires funding to exist, but I was incredibly disappointed by just how limited the free membership is. Without payment, it is just another cycle-calendar app. The reason I’m writing this review now is because my period is late and a little chat box just popped up that claimed it was going to go over the possible causes. When I clicked into it, the first screen was a list of things like pregnancy, stress, diet etc (stuff I could simply find online), and when I clicked next, expecting some sort on insight tailored to my input, it just said the next bit is for premium subscribers only. I couldn’t believe it. So far, I’ve found the app is basically pointless unless you’re willing to pay.
Tares Ann - Other free apps are better
I downloaded this app just to try it out. I’ve used another period tracking app for about 8 years and was just branching out to see if anything was better. When I first signed up it offered a free 30 day trial which was nice considering I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the app or not but still got charged and had to dispute the charge with Apple. At first glance the app has a lot to offer but once I started diving into it I realized it really doesn’t offer much more useful options than most free apps. For starters my old app I can log cervical position, feeling, and opening, this only allows you to log cervical mucus. The helpful tips aren’t all that helpful either. I logged breast tenderness and it told me to check my bra... it’s supposed to be able to pick up on patterns from past cycles. That being said I always get tender breast before my period and I had logged my past cycles so I’m not sure why it’s telling me to check my bra. It also shows that I ovulated on a day that I clearly logged OPK negative. The chat rooms are an absolute nightmare! If you’ve been on any ttc groups on Facebook it’s the exact same in this app. Honestly they’re better off removing the secret chats. With all this being said there are free apps that are just as good as this app and will save you money.
Grace3535 - Love this app!!
I love this app so much it has helped me track my period so I always know when to expect it and when to expect my pms symptoms so I can keep those more under control. I also love the info features and little pop up quizzes and info! It’s so great to be able to learn more about what is happening with my body during each part of my cycle.
My only recommendation would be to add the option of having a miscarriage. I unfortunately had to go through this but without being able to put it in the app as an option all my future periods and ovulation dates were predicted off and I was back at square one. I know all women’s bodies are different but I think having more info on miscarriages and even the ability to put it in the app to understand what happened to my body during that time would be incredibly helpful. I’m sure there is something in the chat but I don’t particularly like the chats very much it’s a lot of contradicting and I don’t know what’s accurate and what’s not but if you had this option it would be so amazing to be able to gain information and more accurate predictions.
Niky biotech - Flo got my pregnant after only 4 month. Was trying for 2yrs before flo
I had the free version of Flo, after i was told by a friend to get it for trying to get pregnant. I downloaded it and me and my man we’re trying for almost two years, using fertility sticks to know when I had the better chance to get pregnant which cost ($50 for the cheapest ones) did everything we could and couldn’t conceive and had suffered sadly four miscarriages. I downloaded flo and used it daily, logging my sex, symptoms everything I got pregnant with my rainbow miracle baby only four months after downloading the app!! I swear by this app if your trying to conceive then conveniently I just switched he the pregnancy log flo in the app. Also since I was logging all my sex, and symptoms, spotting it helped my obgyn figure out my real due date since I have two periods a month and ovulate at odd times compared tor regular women. Now my daughter is 18 months and I’m trying for my 4th baby using the app! I recommend this to any one who is trying to get pregnant!!
24xoL - Good but not great
I like this app for the convenience of being able to track my period, input exercises and symptoms, however, I don't think it's very accurate on it's own and it doesn't allow many options to override the software. Sorry in advance for the length...
For example: After trying to conceive for a few months with no success, I started charting my fertility and discovered that I usually ovulated a few days after Flo predicted (Flo goes by the typical "day 14" rule, which doesn't change no matter what data you add unless it's results from an ovulation test, and many women do not ovulate on day 14!).
My second issue is with the period logging. I miscarried last month and had to switch back from pregnancy mode. While I logged all of my miscarriage bleeding as "period" in the app (basically three weeks worth) and now it's telling me that my period should start now. I understand that the whole point is for the app to predict your period, but miscarriage throws your cycle out of wack. It is very frustrating knowing that I'm going to have to go in and fix the period log every day and have the app tell me that I'm "late." I wish they could come up with some way to fix that.
BritBlex - Love this app but not accurate
I have been using this app for about two years. I started using it after my previous app became outdated and the developers never updated it. Immediately I loved the features and look of this app. I have been tracking my cycles and ovulation using apps for about 6 years so I consider myself knowledgeable. Well, we decided to start trying for a another baby early this year (2018), following the ovulation days in Flo. We had no luck the first few months. Now this would be our third baby and the last two were conceived our first month trying, while using my previous app. My cycles are very regular and ovulation was always accurate. I noticed my body’s ovulation symptoms were not lining up with the dates on the app, they were about a 5-7 days before the app predicted. Sure enough, we then tried the week before the app predicted and we are now pregnant! FYI: my husband works away from home so we literally had to schedule for him to be home when I was ovulating. Also, I now have the app in pregnancy mode and the due date is off a week. I really like the app but would love for it to be more accurate.
reesha doulo - Almost!
This app is (was) perfect. Before the update, it had super useful articles, perfect for a young woman who just started her journey. I loved it when I started mine, it helped me learn about my body and how I can support it throughout my cycle. There were some that were unavailable, due to in-app purchases but that was understandable. However, this feature has been completely removed for those who don’t wish to pay $10/month! This was so upsetting, as this was one of my favorite features of the app. Women should be able to learn about their bodies for free, especially young woman who may not have someone teaching them or have someone to turn to! This app still has helpful features though. There are graphs and reports you can view that sum up your personal cycle and there are monthly reports that sometimes include information about what a full cycle consists of. There are conversations where you can chat with girls about various topics (feels like a sleepover!). Not only can you track period flo, products and symptoms, it is great for tracking everyday habits like sleep and water intake. I only rated it a 3 because they put their profit over women’s needs!!!!
i miss democracy - Love the update!!
I can’t believe there are bad reviews for this new update. Why do people expect everything to be free? I’m American, so I have absolutely no expectations that anyone will give a **** about my wellbeing without me digging into my wallet. I’m also very poor, but this app is in my budget, because it’s important for my physical and mental wellbeing. Are there more than three options here that I’m not considering? 1) Tracking your period is really important and you pay for premium 2) It’s not that important so you keep the free version or 3) You simply cannot afford the premium even though you want it. None of those are the developers’ faults. When I gave my first payment for this app, it was something like what I was looking for. They’ve taken my money and everyone else’s and have turned it into something that is nearly PERFECT. Please don’t complain about your budget or income in an App Store review. Work it out.
Requests: more info on nutrition depending on the cycle day and more moderation in the community. THANK YOU FOR THIS GLORIOUS APP!
KBrennen - Love it, but I wish it had a few more options...
I have been using this tracker for about a year, and I love how far it has come in a short period of time. The ease of use, ability to set reminders- all things that I have come to really enjoy about this app. However, I do wish it had the ability to work for my spouse. Something like- giving him updates or alerts for fertile days, etc. Just something that helps both of us toward our goal.
Also- I wish the app had more options when it comes to symptoms and moods. Stomach aches are common for me on my period, and I wish there was the ability to track them to see if perhaps there was a way to avoid them, or at least have a better idea when I could expect them- we all know our cycles are linked to something! For moods- I feel like angry and panicky don’t always fit the bill for me. I’m more grumpy or just generally annoyed, rather than something that harsh. If not adding more options, perhaps the ability to add custom options that we can then track.
All in all, I absolutely love this app and look forward to future updates!
P-sakk - No premium, no content
Again, but not by mistake this time, they’ve removed all content aside from a calendar. You have to be premium to see even the most basic of articles. Super annoying and seriously just no thanks. $10/month? I pay less for Hulu/Netflix. Lol. There are other apps with more free information and yet still I chose you guys. Been using this app for years but Im officially done. It should be health over money. Good luck. I’ve been reading through reviews and well you seem to have a lot of upset users now. Y’all should really reconsider what you’ve done to the app.
I have been using this app for a couple of years now. I am now pregnant and have switched the settings. I’ll be 20 weeks tomorrow and aside from seeing just how far along I am, I have to subscribe to premium for any other information. I was able to read the what happens at 19 weeks insight last week with no issue and now it is labeled as “premium content” So if I want to read anything about 20 weeks tomorrow, I have to get premium?? It’s usually a short insight so to have to pay $50 for the year or $10 a month for just that, sounds unreasonable. Is this the new norm?? No premium, no content?? Just a calendar.
Guess I’ll be on the hunt for a new app with more info.
Angynono - Do not try flo premium worst customer support
I tried out the Flo premium to see what it was like since they had a one month free trial. I didn’t use it much and wanted to cancel it. I contacted support on how to cancel it and they sent a list of steps on how to cancel it. I was having an issue with one of the steps where the screen would pop up blank and then disappear. I let support know and they responded with the steps of how to unsubscribe. I asked if there was a support number I could get further assistance or a manager I could be passed on to and was sent the steps of how to unsubscribe. The next day I contacted support again asking if there was a support number or a manager I could speak with and asked if they would please not send me instructions on how to do it myself since I was experiencing issues and I was unable ti unsubscribe myself. They responded by sending me the steps in how to do it unsubscribe myself again!
Flo has the worst customer service experience I have ever received. I don’t think they even read my message. They kept sending me the same information. I regret ever trying Flo premium and am still unable to unsubscribe. I don’t understand why they are unable to unsubscribe me from this membership. I have never been so frustrated with an app in my life.
laner724 - Reaches my expectations but could be a little better
So when I first got my period, I had no clue how to know when it came and what would come with it. I got this app because I had see many ads about it. I immediately liked it, and used it regularly. I really liked the quizzes that would ask you to see if you knew some knowledge and how to improve staying healthy. My favorite part, however, was when an insight was posted and it asked a question that you could comment on. I have noticed that this has not been uploaded recently, and I am missing it because many other users had relatable, funny, and inspiring stories that I think should be shared with everyone on the app. If this does get added again, I hope there will be a setting where when someone comments on your comment, you will get notified. Overall, this app is really great and helps me keep track and not forget which I do a lot with other things. I also keep learning new things that can keep my body healthy and clean.
cardenj - Super useful but needs an update!
I’ve been using the app for about a month now and so far I really love it! Obviously I haven’t really had the chance to see how well it does with period/ovulation predicting, but the main reason I love it is for its day-to-day functions. I love the insights given about possible changes and reasons my body might be behaving differently.
I only knocked off a star because I’d like to see a few things added to the symptoms category on the calendar; 1) along with food cravings I feel as though there should be a place where you can log what it is you’re craving (as cravings for different foods can indicate that your body is lacking a certain nutrient), 2) you should be able to log whether or not you’ve had a loss/gain in appetite, 3) I had read another review about maybe starting in-app chat rooms where you can message groups/individual people about specific problems and I thought it was a great idea! The insights that the app gives are helpful but not the same as advice given from people with the same experience.
Overall I highly recommend!!
Loveyahi - I love Flo! However,
Flo is a remarkable app and I prefer it over any other tracker. There are a few concerns I have. One being the chat rooms. With so many people commenting this on Flo and the App Store, and you claiming to read our reviews....I’m surprised you haven’t changed this. Two words: Group Chat. This will help us all help each other more frequently! I mean, I haven’t had an insight in 6 months! Anyway next, we all miss the quizzes page, with all the interactive quizzes you could take about all the different topics! I don’t even know why you removed that, it was amazing. Also, some features that might add some pizzaz to Flo is being able to change your profile/comment icon, change the app icon format on your screen, getting notifications when someone replies to our comment instead of having to scroll scroll scroll, and also a search bar, so we can search for our insights instead of having to legitimately go on a quest for them on the insights page.
Another thing is with the new update i can’t see the secret chats anymore? i used to and now i can’t? is it premium?
Best regards! I hope you make some changes!
Kaila Jab - Better Than My Wildest Dreams
I don’t usually write reviews but this app is honestly amazing!!! I didn’t want to pay the monthly subscription, but I told myself “what the heck would it hurt?!” My husband and I are trying for baby #2 and after a few months of coming up with a few negative pregnancy test I looked up some apps that would better assist me on this journey. The very first day, I fell in LOVE with this app!! I have no clue how I didn’t use it sooner! The way they talk you through the things you may not understand, or the FAQs, also not to mention that they have these really great slide shows that will tell you what to expect when you’re ovulation and how your body may feel. If you’re second guessing if you should pay the extra cost - don’t! That extra coin is going to make you fall deeper in love with this beautiful app. I honestly wish I would’ve used sooner. Woke up this morning after only a week of using this app to find I’m ovulating. I cried so hard, to the creators of this app - thank you! 🥰
VeryFertileMyrtle - Cute Reminder for your partner
I’m really enjoying this app. I’m a mother of 5. We planned for 4 and received a bonus! 😉 We don’t want to use artificial contraception to prevent more pregnancies and this app has really helped me keep track of everything pertaining to my fertility. The only thing I would love to have added is the opportunity to be able to share with my husband the data to be able to plan days for sex. We don’t want to have more children so it would be nice to have him be able to check on his own where my fertility is because I can’t always remember to send him a screenshot of the calendar, plus, I think it would be so cute to have him receive the reminders from the app and not just me. I’m super busy tending to five kids, after all. I feel like I always have to be the one to initiate because I'm the only one who knows when it’s safe. I found another app that does this reminder, but it would be fabulous to just have it all on Flo because I enjoy this app so much. Thanks and have a great day!
Jesikai - Pushy Advertising, I’ve About Had It...
I get the need to push users towards the subscription version of the app so that the company stands a better chance of getting funds for future development and continued support, but wow! Every time I open the app now, I am locked out of it by an ad for a discount on the subscription unless I kill the app and immediately reopen it. No exit button, and waiting does not get rid of it. Must be killed and immediately reopened. Flo has been steadily ramping it up with the pushing over the past couple of years, and it’s led to very poor advertising flows that are more irritating and less functional with each update. I only stick with Flo at this point because I have no way of transferring years of cycle data over to a different app.
Another thing: stop it with the pop up that blocks access to the ‘My Daily Insights’ area that has suggested symptoms that are not relevant to me, at all. They’re always symptoms that I never have, rather than ones that are common at that point in my own cycle, per the years of data that the app should have on my cycle. Either make it tailored to the person’s data from within the app, or just get rid of it.
Laladiva - Birth control
I personally love this app! I have recommended to all my friends and have used it for years! The new updates are great too. I’ve thought about all the different features and even the customizable reminders. I love that you can set a reminder to take your contraceptives and personalize it to work for the individual. Something that i think would be great to add would be a birth control mode. So those who take a form of contraceptive can use it and help them. But for those who don’t, don’t have to bother. I feel like this mode would include being able to log it and in my case the pill. And log the symptoms you’ve being experiencing along with the pill. It would also be nice for the insights to include some information on birth control and on other hormonal things that we all go through. As opposed to how to hide your pad or stuff like that. I know there are a lot of younger people who use this app which is great but there are many older users as well and we could use some new information too. Just a few thoughts! 😊
GirlWhoWaited0423 - Review
I love this app, it’s very helpful, but I do have some suggestions. In terms of mood options, maybe you could add some moods tailored to mental health such as “depressed” or “anxious”, I feel like it would help me personally as opposed to labeling it under “mood swings”. Additionally, if there were an ovulation app without pregnancy that would be helpful. I’ll use myself as an example; I’m not looking to get pregnant any time soon, but it would be helpful for me to see when I’m ovulating so I can plan around it. Also, I wouldn’t mind more insights, quizzes, and interactive questions/polls that fit with my inputs. I find it very insightful to hear what other women have to say about a particular topic. Lastly, if our mood fluctuates throughout the day, we should be able to input our current mood, the time we began feeling that way, and an option to explain why we’re feeling that way. I’m just thinking of those with depression much like myself, and it would be interesting to see when, how, and why my mood changes. There might be a pattern that can help us identify a problem or issue.
Millie9512 - Decent but needs improvement
Great as a basic period/cycle tracker for keeping a record of your symptoms including cervical discharge and pms symptoms. However, I’ve noticed it’s very inconsistent. For example, in the past when I would log a negative ovulation test the day before my predicted ovulation day, the app would push back my predicted ovulation by one day. However, I did that for this cycle, and it didn’t push it back a day. Seems odd. Also, I’ve been logging birth control pills for the past week, yet the app is not sensitive to that information at all. Furthermore, I find the daily insights really basic and redundant. Hopefully, they can help younger people, but if you are already pretty knowledgeable about your cycle and/or fertility, the information will be way too elementary. Lastly, as others have pointed out in their reviews, the anonymous chats are a MESS. It’s full of people spouting nonsense and praying for “baby dust” from the lord. If you want community support or to hear people’s stories, you’re better off finding one of Reddit’s many sub groups for women’s health or fertility. I don’t think the premium content is worth it.

Crewman83 - Excellent for all stages of life
This app is excellent for first time young adults right up to menopause for tracking your periods, ovulation and monthly symptoms and pregnancy. It is intuitive and changes with the more information you give it tho u may not notice at first. I only have the free version which is more than enough for me and well thought of to not add pressure to buy any extras so it still gives you the critical needs of the app all for free. I urge all women to download and enter this app daily and watch as your body tells you subtle signs of what’s to come. Thank you for this well made easy to use app! For years now It’s Helped me track my period and then ovulation and now pregnancy. The added private chat subjects weekly opening up the ease of conversations women just should have and all private so no stress discussing anything. And best of all... it works perfectly fine for free for critical information so your not held at ransom at all. Highly recommend for young women new to the world of their body and periods or those trying to conceive for tracking body symptoms that you may otherwise miss. Very detailed daily multiple choice entries of symptoms to help the app predict what your cycle is doing. So easy to use and links with health app for added benefits and info all in one place. The best app I have on my phone.
ChloeVt - So Good!
I had no hope for this app, just thought it was be one of those crappy apps. But this is super reliable, gives you everything you need to put down and more things like that. I only had a little bit of information on my cycle and it’s literally so accurate already which I DID NOT expect at all ( that’s why I had no hope for it ). But it’s just SO GOOD, simple and easy to function for the younger people like me out there. The only thing is, when you are logging in your daily symptoms or period symptoms there isn’t an option for aching. A lot of people I know get aching in their back AND in other areas in your body that just take over your body and eventually your body is aching so bad. For me, my main period symptom is this horrible aching in my thighs to my feet and I have no option to log it in. So I was just wondering if you guys could add in a feature to make that an option to log down :) Thank you for making my period regular!!! I seriously recommend it! <3
Emerald Gamer Girl - Good but there are issues
Flo is overall a pretty decent app. It tracks quite accurately, and has a ton of information available for users. My one issue is the app’s attitude towards LGBTQ+ people and matters. I think the app should have a choice at the beginning for what gender you are, so if you don’t identify as female you won’t be misgendered every time you open it. I also have a massive problem with the secret chat, as my comments keep getting deleted. I have ones with lots of likes that are then removed because they violate the policy. I can’t help but notice that they are always the ones in the LGBTQ+ sections, talking about LGBTQ+ topics. I get very annoyed because I’m not discriminating against anyone, not being offensive or swearing excessively, not being political (unless gay is counted—which, in the gay section is very strange), and I’m not promoting anything illegal! It’s always on topic and completely relevant, but they always get removed. This is exceptionally frustrating when I use the app as a way to connect with other queer people/women and need the sense of community; which is impossible when comments get removed. Apart from that, it’s pretty good. Please take this into consideration for future updates.
Catadorer - Love this but pls take note
I love this app and it is very helpful although it does have some features that I don’t like or would like to improve. Please can you add more options in the daily log, like different feelings, types of medication/vitamins, more types of exercise, any unusual bodily functions, things you ate today, how your skin/hair is etc would be amazing!!!!
Also can you please bring back the chat room things where we talk about subjects and offer advice? I loved those and I know that so many other girls did too. Or even can you make a general chat room for girls to talk about anything? That is a request I’ve seen a number of times and I know that Flo users would adore that feature.
I definitely support the whole don’t be afraid to talk about your period thing and the videos with famous women about periods are awesome but I reckon the Flo users liked it better when you just had the daily advice and chat rooms. Love the advice too! But can you broaden your advice page to how to deal with relationships and stuff?
Thank you so much!!!! I love Flo so much and I only want to see it improve so if you can improve any of these things above that would be amazing! xx
EJatEms - Great until recently
Have used the app for a few years and have loved it. I’ve just decided to make the switch to a different highly rated period app after contemplating it for a fair while. The main reason is that features on Flo are constantly being restricted to premium members. I believe top notch features could be a paid subscription model but not sure why this is the case when earlier versions of the app had almost everything for free.
If you don’t mind a very simple app for free, or paying for the details - get the app, or at least consider it near the top of your choices
I don’t like the increasing content restrictions. It feels like profit is the priority now, not open information. I’m sure a large number of the target audience are young, somewhat vulnerable and unsure of the things they experience during menstruation. They’re also probably a group who has less access to money for the app. Sexual liberation is also becoming a focus for the app, but it feels like this is a marketing ploy to gain more paid subscribers as it’s not free for the masses.
Tiger Hater - 💖🌸AMAZING🌸💖
I’m 13 and I’ve had my period for ages now and so far I haven’t found much apps that are really good. But I saw Flo come up on my Snapchat and I downloaded it, I wasn’t expecting too much as every other app I have tried was horrible. But I love flo! It’s amazing! There are heaps of surveys on there to help you! Of course they are optional. But I absolutely love this app. This app tracks your ovulation, and helps you if your sexually active, and it has a pregnancy tracker in case your planning on getting pregnant or if you are pregnant. You can either have this mode “on” or “off”, of course mine is off but this app is just amazing! I definitely recommend you to this app and I have recommended it to my friends too. There are in store purchases but I’m not sure what they are I’ve never bought anything, it’s completely free. And it’s amazing. I wouldn’t recommend any fix ups, it’s just great.
hvhvyvni - Subscriptions
I’ve been using Flo for a while now and it’s a pretty good app and quite accurate, the one problem I have is the amount of stuff you can’t do without a subscription I get that the app needs to make money but I feel like there is so little that you can do for free, for example the chats with the health assistance, you get half way through and then they ask you to pay for a subscription which isn’t really an option for me, and the annoying thing is I would find those chats really useful if I didn’t have to pay, as well as the insight section, you can’t read any of the things in that section which is another thing I would find useful if I didn’t have to pay. I just find it very inconvenient because I have a lot of things I want to find out and most of the time they have a thing for that but I can’t read it without a subscription. Other than that I think it’s a pretty useful app I just wish they would expand what you can do without a subscription :/
Chickadeeella - Great but...
I’m 13 I have had my period for about 3 years. now and I was just scrolling through the App Store looking for a good period tracker because all of my ones tell me over a period of 10 days I could have my period within that time frame but the never actually tell me the date it’s due but I saw this and thought it looked decent so I downloaded it and all I gotta say is I love this app you can get accurate predictions and you can leave anonymous comments on chats but I don’t like how you have to pay for premium I feel like you shouldn’t have to pay to learn about your body and there are a lot of things you can read to find out what to do in embarrassing situations but you have to pay for them those could’ve saved me in a lot of situations but I’m not paying for something we have the right to learn about for free I would’ve given this app 5 stars if i didn’t have to pay for most things
TheGirlOnTheMoon - Chat rooms
I don’t know about other age groups but in the 13-17 group there’s a LOT of girls requesting a chat room or something similar for sharing our problems, rather than having to scroll all the way back down through the insights to find one with comments. If any of you developers actually read the comments, you’ll notice how many of them begin with “off topic, but...” To me this really indicates the need for an improved feature on sharing our thoughts and issues. Suggestions:
- chat room as an added feature
- being able to “favourite” some of the insights so that we don’t have to scroll down
- notifications for when someone has replied to our comment
- more insights that encourage Flo users to comment on a diverse range of topics (in order to mitigate the “off topic, but...”)
tarabelle88 - Almost perfect
I love almost everything about this app, but there are a few certain features that it lacks so I actually have to use it combined with another app.
Ovulation test results should also cater for the digital kind, so that you can log low, high and peak fertility- and then the app should adjust the predications accordingly.
And on that note- when logging a peak (or positive for the non digital) ovulation test, basal temperatures should still be taken into consideration with the predictions as OPK can show peak but ovulation can still be 12-36 hours away.
I love that I can see the cycle days on the calendar, and my predicted period/ovulation days- makes it easy to look ahead when making plans.
I do also wish that when logging a miscarriage, that the app would discount all of those days instead of showing as a super long cycle which just throws out all of the other calculations.
PCTS1986 - Good until the latest update
I used to love this app, have been using it for over 2 years. It was accurate and provided a lot of information. Would have easily been 5 stars. That is, until the latest update. Now it asks you to upgrade to premium for any and all information. It gives you a little teaser then automatically directs you to upgrade to premium where you have to pay (but they keep shoving down your throat a free one month trial even though cc details are required for that). Used to be a great free app, not so much anymore. Unfortunately will be looking elsewhere now.
Reading the other reviews, they give a stock standard answer as to why they are making more content for premium users only but I read a response from them one year ago saying they valued the free subscribers and would maintain the same level of content for them. Guess they lied and decided they wanted money instead of loyal customers.
DorkyUnicorn11 - Good but...
It is totally awesome how you can know when I could have my period just in case I forget, and the emotion things and stuff are pretty cool too (no other app that I know has that) but... I’m 11... so yeah... I can’t track my own! I only help my 13 year old cousin with setting it up because she got her period not long ago(she got it about 2 and a half months before her 13th birthday and when she could, she downloaded the app for all the other stuff that isn’t on other apps...because before that she had one that makes age not matter). And most of the 5-6th graders at my school have their period too. And also some 4th grades and 1-5 3rd graders! I really want this app and to rate it 5 stars but I can’t because I’m “too young”. Even if when I’m 13 and I do get this app... I won’t change the rating unless I KNOW younger people can track their periods. Please fix this, Sincerely, this random girl who put too many words into a review...
#myrevieww - Not In love with the new update
I used to love the simplicity of this app. I was able to track my period, symptoms and ovulation and get a quick breakdown of the month every time I logged my period and it was perfect.
With the update, some of the things I used to love about the app are unavailable without the membership and I get constant pop ups for information about the premium version and quizzes, that if you take will have you at a sign up page to join the premium membership.
The constant pestering about the new membership makes me not want to go on and long my period or symptoms because a quick 5 second action now takes a few minutes of adds about premium features.
I understand and appreciate the effort that has gone into creating the premium app, but I am at the point where I’m ready to get rid of the app all together as it’s just not what it used to be , and the changes haven’t benefited my experience.
Newbie twenty14 - I live by my Flo Tracker
My Fav by Far and it really helps prepare me for upcoming Events and outings as well as having the graph I am able to clearly see the changes each month as I want to show my Doctor once I have enough information stored.
Would love for example when Ive chosen angry or mood swings if there was option was it caused by work, partner etc because I use the note section alot to write what was the cause but it does not show on the graph.
Also alot of questions are off Topic which is a great read and helpful I was wondering can there could be a colour option or Icon to be clicked for Off Topic comments so its easier to get to the gold mine of help and experience for that subject.
Lastly its invaluable having other Women of the World to reach out to, THANK YOU DEVELOPERS for this App and making it Free 🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷
Mica_Westlock - _Wonderful! SUGGESTION-PLEASE READ
Flo is such a simple and effective app to use, it has everything a girl/woman needs to keep track of her period, ovulation, pregnancy and everything in between. The health insights are an absolutely fantastic idea! To make this app even better, I have a suggestion that I think every person who uses this app would enjoy. In the discussion insights, there are many users who talk about their want for a section just for discussions. The idea is that for there to be another feature, in which everybody can anonymously post their stories, questions and thoughts and feelings, any be able to give and receive advice (especially in the psychological sense). I believe this will make Flo even better, and I speak for everyone. Please take this idea into consideration! Keep up the good work!
rattatatatatattata - great app
i love flo! very productive, check on the app almost everyday to see when my next period is! i’m not sure if it’s efficient though because i did put it when i started and finished my period from the last month but the next month i could start days before what the app had said i started. i hope you understand what i mean, sometimes it can’t be 100% efficient also with the pregnancy’s and stuff because i’m young and i’ve definitely know i’m not pregnant or going to be, anytime soon. besides that, i still continue to use it because it’s better than using a regular calendar and counting up the days because my days are very random so i don’t blame the app for not getting the right days. Love the app! Would recommend!
Me92736291937 - Love it
I absolutely love this app and it helps so much and is very accurate. Usually I’m not exactly regular but a few days off from the last one and it still predicts it perfectly. Flo feels like a personal doctor because it knows me so well AND there is also a great community of people on it to support you. I love that it is anonymous and it talks about issues that need to be discussed and I feel so much better about myself cause everyone just brings me up and shows me I’m not the only person suffering with different things. The only thing that is bad is that if you post something later on you have to find that post again and look. I would rather if there was a section that told you if you got a reply. Other than that I think this app is great and I really recommend it.
Mandalion96 - Excellent App overall!!
“Flo” is a fantastic app that effectively caters to its overall purpose, record, predict and calculate the average in your own period cycle and ovulation. As a long-time user, and someone who has a fairly regular cycle, with no children or other medical conditions that could result in irregular periods, I’ve had nothing but a great experience with the app. As a busy woman who forgets when her cycle is coming up, Flo notifies you if your period is coming up soon, but this prediction feature works far better when you log in your period symptoms (bloating, flow level, acne, etc) lastly start and end dates. The user interface is simple and easy to follow when setting up your account plus navigating throughout the app is simple and seem less! Would highly recommend!
happyhealthy28285 - Impressed
I have been using Flo for almost a year now on the free version and loved it to track everything then recently I changed it to the premium just because I had the chance with the free trial and all and all I have to say is wow I’m actually impressed. The the daily guides, info packs and even your cycle summaries are so detailed. If this is the new flo I don’t think I’ll end up going to the free version it’s actually worth paying for now which I never thought I’d say. It’s very informative and the information is so valuable! The only change I’d make is I wish you could custom a few icons and add things like meals etc. or toilet movements but I mean other than that it’s great!
amber__2041 - I love it but to improve...
I love the app because its so helpful, informative and easy to use to help track your health. It also suggests articles about your body (such as acne) to improve your overall health and wellbeing. If you want to go the extra mile, you can take courses to provide a more in-depth solution to any problems you may be experiencing by answering questions to make the courses personalised to your advantage. However to improve the app, if some courses and other resources are made free or are more affordable (especially since younger teen girls may be using the app) then I think the app would benefit and be enjoyed more by its wide and diverse audience. I also think if this is changed, Flow could benefit significantly by attracting more users as the app is one of, if not the best app for providing information about health and wellbeing for girls and women.
CJ910! - Features to add
The app is great and helpful but I feel like a feature that should be added is energy levels or something similar to that, plus with the stress it should allow you to select an option as to why (work, school, personal life, no reason etc.) and more emotions to choose from such as agitated and depressed also in the exercise section walking should be put there as another option other than that everything seems perfect! Other feature that should be added is instead of just having days have times during the days as for example I find I lot of the time my period sort stops or I won’t bleed during the night but will during the day and a lot of the time I’ll start my period very late in the afternoon making the amount of days the app says I have slightly inaccurate
Jadiekins7 - Super useful for tracking
Love this app, although, I would like it if you could still see when you’re ovulating even with contraception reminders. With the pill if you miss one or are sick you’re more likely to get pregnant - and seeing as no contraception is 100% it would still be good to have your main ovulation day lit up on the calendar regardless of contraception reminders. Other than that, I love the reminder feature.
Would like a little more options in pregnancy mode as well. None of the data input options change, despite that there’s heaps more stuff going on in pregnancy that can be logged (like morning sickness, spotting, carpel tunnel, restless legs etc). Had to download a different app during my recent pregnancy, which sucked because I prefer flo and don’t enjoy having a tonne of apps around.
J-muffin😫 - Developer won’t cancel subscription
During trial period, I tried to cancel my subscription before I incurred any cost as I didn’t find the app suitable for my needs. I couldn’t find it under my usual subscription location to be able to cancel, so I emailed the developer who explained to me that I must not have an active subscription and that I won’t be charged once the trial period ends.
Today I noticed I have been charged the premium fee, despite attempting to have the subscription cancelled. Again, I have emailed the developer who has given me a long list of things to try (which I tried the first time) in order to cancel it again!
This is really poor on your behalf, there should be a simplified “opt out” not making customers jump through hoops and be charged unnecessarily even after they’ve contacted you asking for it to be cancelled!!
I’m still awaiting a response and refund!!
If I could give you zero stars, I would.
silverlily111 - Great insights and features!
I’ve had this app for a few months now and I absolutely love it! It’s easy to use, has great features for logging symptoms and tracking your menstrual cycle! But the best part of the app are the personalised recommendations! I only have the free version of the app, but I am still given a few custom articles and tips every day that are tailored to fit my symptoms and needs. I rely on this app every day now to search my symptoms or to read about women’s health and educate myself on something new! The app interface is easy to use and you can set a custom background and themes to make it even more personalised!
Seriously cannot recommend this app enough!
CCS2013 - Good depending on your cycle
I found this good for general tracking and being able to see patterns however as soon as my husband and I started trying to conceive i realised the ovulation prediction was wrong.
I have a cycle that moves around up to 5 days, although it is not classed as irregular it’s hard for Flo to predict ovulation.
Due to my personal circumstances (hard to track O) i started charting my basal temp - and subscribed to natural cycles. In Natural cycles you can plot the temps, and through that it was easy to find that i ovulated on the 20th day, not 14th.
Flo is great if you like to track all yr PMS symptoms, log as much info as much as possible. You can add yr temp in Flo, but natural cycles generates a chart. This saved me some $$ on OP sticks. It’s always down to personal preference. If Flo generated a basal temp chart i’d give it 5 stars.
catch22jesus - I am not a pregnant person.
Loved this app until it recently started referring to pregnant women as pregnant ‘people’. This app is concerned with menstrual health and period tracking, something experienced by 50% of the earth’s population — the word we have for these people is women. It has just occurred to me that the people at Flo do not even have a definition for the word woman anymore as according to them, adult human females are not necessarily women. Woman is not a dirty word. Adult human females need a word to describe ourselves and the specific health issues we face. Flo should know that better than most. Keep identity politics out of our health apps. Can Flo define ‘woman’? Does Flo even have a word for its target audience? Or are we separated into our body parts? Menstruating people, people with a cervix, pregnant people… this is both dehumanising and medically irresponsible.
Caityd_99 - Amazing but please add this update!
Hello, I have been using Flo for about 6 or 7 months now and so far it has been really accurate and very informative to young girls like my self, I have learnt so much not just about periods but about general health and what normal and what’s not. One of my favourite features of the app is how you can share experiences, stories and information anonymously.
This may sound weird and TMI but in the days leading up to my period I tend to urinate a lot and I have asked some of my girl friends and even my mum about it and they have also said they have realised it too. I think that excessive urination should be added as a symptom option, I really think it could help women like me.
because_hadee - Loyalty lost!
I have been using this app for more than 3 years now, and found it very reliable and helpful. It helped me a lot during my first pregnancy, especially the insights, tips, and calendar etc.. So easy and simple to use!
BUT for the past few months flo has changed from a lively insightful women's app to a useless space waster on my phone. No notifications whatsoever anymore. At first I thought it was my phone, but when I checked the settings I realised it was because I now have to pay to continue using it. The pregnancy calendar tracker no longer gives insights like it used to. I clicked on the insights a few days ago and was happy to see some information, only to be bitterly disappointed when it disappeared before I was able to read it!
That was the last straw, and I have now downloaded another app, and will be deleting yours, seeing as you are now too commercialised to care about your long time users!
ChibiChatter - Cluttered
I can’t open the app without it trying to direct me to a personalisation quiz, or a bot chat room with “fun facts about periods”, or an article about sexual health, or unsolicited advice about my exercise/hygiene/dietary habits, or random mythbuster facts about generic biological functions like goosebumps, or...
And for the love of god, I’ve turned off every notification except “your period is due”, and STILL multiple pop-ups a day chirping about my hormone levels, and new deals on the app, and whatever else this thing thinks I need shoved in my face.
Look, I just want to mark the day I woke up in a pool of blood, maybe log a few symptoms, and check the graph to see how this compares to last month. Get out of my face. Please. Every time I check in there’s more useless add-ons to wade through before I can get to the basic core functions I want to use.
LaynePepper - So helpful!
I love this app. I've been using it for around a year now. When I first got it, and my periods were very regular, the predictions were very accurate and the health insights were really interesting. However, a few months ago, I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome, making my periods much more irregular (I didn't get one for three months) along with a bunch of other symptoms. It would be good if you could log specific reproductive conditions like PCOS or Endometriosis and get specific insights related to these. That aside, the app has been very useful in my diagnosis and treatment as I have an extensive and consistent log of many cycles when I visit the doctor.
TatyLove05 - Prediction is off
This app isn’t like any other app, it helps a lot! Whatever you’re unsure of Flo has the answers. I’ve used it for about 2 years and other apps aren’t as helpful as Flo. There’s only one thing about Flo I don’t like and that it’s always getting the prediction of my period wrong. It would always say one day late and then two days late. I’m not even sure if I’m able to fix this but it really frustrated me, and worried me. Sometimes my period would skip a month and that REALLY stressed me out. But apparently it was only because of stress. That one little issue with the app is that stressful but regardless it’s a really helpful app. There are articles you can read to help you understand your body and what happens as you get older. I would only wish for the app to fix that issue.
tahliauser11 - Great app but..
I really enjoy using Flo and reading through articles which gives me a better understanding of my body but I am extremely disappointed now that there is a premium feature. We all should be entitled to read information and receive personal data but now we all need to pay for that. I feel there is no need to pay for certain features such as reading articles as you can so easily go onto the internet to find these things out. Everything used to be free and it was helpful but now we need to pay for information about our own cycles. I have had Flo for a few years now and the change has left me disappointed. I love the app but the premium feature doesn’t help.
sara12346783 - THEY TAKE YOUR MONEY DONT DOWNLOAD
I downloaded this app as a free trial. I am pretty onto free trials and don’t mind when they roll over onto a MONTHLY payment. Today I found $77 had been taken out of my account because the free trial has rolled over to a PREMIUM PREGNANCY ASSIST UPGRADE. And they have charged me for a whole YEAR. It’s not even a monthly sub . A whole year. I was happy to go to a monthly subscription so I went on there and changed it to monthly non premium option. And now it’s charging me for ANOTHER $19 Month after this year is up. I can’t believe it. Especially at the moment with covid and struggling with money. I emailed them the SAME day they took the money out and they said they couldn’t help me with my enquiry and told me I have to go through apple. I have now emailed apple to sort out this problem. And will be reporting this company to consumer affairs.
Thanks for nothing
Haybayxoxx - Love love love ... but ...
So I love this app it’s amazing it does everything it says it supposed to and more, however, could you possible look into implementing and option to log the morning after pill / emergency contraception pill into the cycle “mood and symptoms” area - as the emergency contraceptive pill totally F’s up your cycle and creates a whole new set of hormones and can make your period up to 1 week late, it would be great to be able to log this information and have the cycle prediction updated so we don’t stress the hell out thinking it didn’t work and our period is late for other reasons
Other than that I’d totally recommend and have been for months !
Artemis8CHBL - 🚨 Flo please pay attention 🚨
As you know, trans people get their periods as well. They don’t always identify as a female or use she/her pronouns. As I see lots of chats and insights and different things that say “Womanhood” and “girly chats”, using she/her pronouns a lot and basically a bunch of other things that make it seem like cis women (people who are born female and identify as female) are the only people on the app.
A suggestion is to change “womanhood” to “adulthood” and “girly chats” into “secret chats” and changing she/her pronouns to they/them so we can make this app more inclusive and everyone can feel comfortable with their bodies.
The only other thing that I have is having to pay money for Flo premium. When I got the app I thought “Cool! I’m finally gonna learn about what’s happening to me without feeling awkward!”
Then I realised most of the insights that I want to learn about and most of the questions that I want answered are only accessible to people who pay. I definitely don’t think someone should have to pay to be able to learn about their body.
Overall a great app but a few flaws that are making people like me mad.
HInskip - Have been let down
Have been faithfully using Flow for years while trying to get pregnant.
When we finally conceived I was loving the weekly update informing us when our little one is up, what’s developing, what fruit or vegetable equivalent is currently floating around in my fist size baby motel... My baby daddy is stuck interstate while I’m in stage 4 lockdown in victoria so we have loved the updates.
Then today, week 14 begins and I’m all “ooo! what’s this week”! only to discover that suddenly i cant access any of this information without upgrading to premium membership for a monthly fee. Content I have had easy access to for the last 14 weeks, with no warning now comes at a cost. I’m sad and disappointed with this underhanded money grabbing and will be looking else where, and advising anyone seeking an app for this purpose to steer clear.
Unimpressed by this bundle. - Privacy Concerns
My "personal advice" and "product or service offerings" settings have always been set to OFF, yet I’m constantly bombarded by unsolicited messages in my notification centre! The only way to not get these is to turn off notification for the app altogether but then I won’t get the notifications I have chosen to receive, which completely defeats the purpose of using such an app. I understand a free app will serve ads and have no issue with that if you only did that discretely when I’m using your app. Disregarding my wishes and forcing advice/offers on me is disrespectful and intrusive. If you can’t even respect my chosen settings, how can I trust you to respect the privacy of my health data? I stopped using another popular period tracking app for this exact same reason. I will also never use your app nor recommend it again.
Raspberry8 - Good with clear issues
This is a good tracking app, however some issues affecting usability. Main issues I have are:
1. app takes a long time to start up, with a very non discreet and bright opening page . Not really something I want to open at work and wait to start up.
2. Reminders aren’t very good. I find them very difficult to figure out. It doesn’t automatically start up again for the next cycle, and you miss reminders, turning reminders on is confusing. I think I have turned it on but nothing appears. I end up creating another one, and sometimes I get double the reminders. Not very clear how to use these.
If you can please fix this, that would make me want to rely on the app, right now, don’t find it altogether reliable.
jessjasonlives - The BEST period/women’s health related app!
I was on the hunt for a period tracking app after coming off the implanon and had tried many before Flo and couldn’t understand why i wasn’t happy. Then I found flo. This app is amazing. Tracks your cycle, ovulation, bleeding days, when most likely to get pregnant and when your not, your symptoms EVERYTHING! Plus a super supportive community to post and read. Plus health advice! Thank you so much, this has given me everything I need and more in a period tracking app. I can see myself using this and only this for all my sexual/women’s health needs moving forward.
nabgsghs - Please read
This app is amazing for tracking your period, but, I feel like it needs more things that you can track, more moods and exercises and I feel like we should be able to add “other” and then add what it is that we felt/did. I also feel like we should get notifications when someone replies to one of our comments, and be able to save or make certain insights stick to the top. It’d be great if you had an online chat room or something where we could post certain things we want to ask too, kinda like yahoo, so we know where to find it and were able to search questions we want answered if we don’t want to ask them ourselves.
That’d be great, thank you :)
ZigZig11 - Best! I adore it!
This has to be one of my all time favourites! To have super accurate predictions you have to log at least once every three days, your mood, exercise, symptoms etc. I don’t have Flo premium but I know that have super detailed, well researched, fantastic programs, for acne and skincare, mental health and even Covid! They also have this thing which I ADORE. It’s called Secret Chats, where you can talk anonymously about experiences and discuss all sorts of topics, from periods, to crushes, to music etc. it sounds like I’m sponsoring or something but I just love this app so much. It’s even good at tracking inconsistent periods. I’m in awe. 💖
Beccat 1000000 - Long time user, recently disappointing.
I’ve used this app for about 5 years and it’s been fantastic to help me track my period, mood and sexual activity. Over the past year or so, I have been bombarded with “BUY PREMIUM” messages. This makes sense for extra features, but I am now being asked to pay for features that used to be free. My last pregnancy 3 years ago gave me a couple of helpful tips about baby’s growth and how to manage pregnancy. My current pregnancy - all of this information is locked behind a paywall! In my opinion, this is lazy of the developers to put content that used to be free in the “premium” package. Why not add more new amazing features in premium? Instead you chose the easy road that exploits users for minimum effort on your part.
Mt Inkheart - Amazing!
I just got this app a few days a ago, and I’ve got to say I’m impressed. There are no offers for premium or anything, there articles about your period, and you can change the colour scheme. Nice layout, doesn’t crash so far, and you can have a passcode.
There I one thing I think would definitely improve the app though.
It would be great to be able to change the actual app artwork and opening screen for when you type in the password. It’s great that you can change the colours when you’re actually in the app, but I’m not really that much of a fan of pink.
Ok thanks, keep up the great work!
babysura22 - Lacking in pregnancy support
This app is full of good stuff for when you’re TTC-ing or just want to track your period and get health tips along the way. But once you’ve become pregnant and switch your profile, the support is very lacking (even for a full paying subscriber). For instance they repeat the same label warnings for weeks, never give any advice whatsoever on how to manage morning sickness and there are very few recipes for recommended meals. They talk more about how to check in with your partner’s sympathy symptoms rather than helping you feel better through nutritional advice. I guess they have separated this content to a different app, which I find sneaky and exploitative. Very disappointing.
ivylee13💚 - The best app for girls!
This is honestly the best app to get for any situation for any girl. It tracks your cycle accurately and they have these “secret chats” which is just a chat room filled with different topics like health and friendships, relationships ect. And all these women come together to share their stories and tips to help out other women and it is so helpful because you can always find the help you need. It’s just absolutely amazing and the app itself giving you different options on how to deal with your period is exceptional and I’m in love with the whole algorithm of the app. Love, love, love it!!!
bustfrunds - Used to be good
I’ve had Flo for years now and really enjoyed it for a while. I’ve just deleted it because I got a notification that was extreme click-bait - it said something like “You’ll be very emotional today, click to find out why!” and it wanted me to upgrade??? I have anxiety and this made me feel very targeted and anxious that I’d have to pay money for someone to tell me there’s something wrong with me? Please don’t reply with “Hi there, we are always trying to upgrade our features so we need money to give you the best” spiel, I’ve read enough responses on here to abhor the copy and pasted answers. Just warning any people who are thinking about downloading or not, the only good part is the tracking section, all previously free content you have to now pay for, and they monitor secret chats religiously.
naumj - Was good but now it’s not
I loved this app until you made every feature accessible only if you have a subscription! Not long ago I loved this app due to it’s helpful cycle/ conception insights that were very knowledgeable and was some what accessible to most people. Understandably, there were still some features behind a paywall, but in general it was great. Now the free version has none of these features! Considering the financial hardship many people are currently going through, it would’ve been great if the app still had some of those free features. Now it is just a boring app that just tracks your periods and logs your symptoms. With regret, after sticking out for a while - I will now be transferring back to your competitors apps as a result.
Puppy🐶💙🐶 - Great but has a slight glitch
Hi! I love this app. It helps me so much when I first needed it to now, teaching me things my mum couldn’t explain. It is a great tracker and education app abd is everything I need for my changes I highly recommend this app for other girls. Before your most recent update, I was able to do everything. Just after I updated it, I go to community chat, go into one of the topics and pick a chat. However, when I’m done, I press the x button but I can’t access the app no matter how many times I press it. So every time I want to exit or go into another chat, I have to restart the app and it is really frustrating. Please fix this glitch. Thank you!
dontdrinktheessentialoil - Cannot log and Spam
I don’t like the app as I cannot open it without constant subscription adverts. There is no option to close them unless I click and view it. They come ever 20 seconds. Also as my periods are long it refuses to log them. If I start a period and end it it changes the start date to make my cycle last days less than it lasted in reality. Then tries to make me read articles on my symptoms but then before I can view them it tries to make me pay. I hate this app and it’s ruined my tracking as it keeps changing my logs
Update: Received an email asking to contact about issue. Mentioned the issue of it changing my cycles length automatically to be shorter. Was then told to just try uninstalling and reinstalling. I’ll be uninstalling but not reinstalling
Jjjordyyyy - Changes to Health Insights ruined one of the best features of the app.
Flo is a good app for tracking, and marking cycle symptoms. It is usually accurate and makes it easier to predict my cycle.
One of the features I loved about the app was that in the “health insights” section it would tel me which hormonal phase I was in and what to expect.
However I was suddenly very disappointed recently when I saw they changed this section. It no longer tells me which hormones I am experiencing the changes with, and it no longer tells me which symptoms to expect. In the “swipe for more info” section that has been added, it comes up with a generic unchanging article. It’s the same article every day.
I think this change really reduced the quality of experience of the app for me which finds me using it less. I used to use the app every day to check which hormones I was experiencing changes with and what symptoms to expect, but maybe now I use it once a week. I might even stop using this app all together.
Please consider bringing the feature back.

Nighmare1234🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄 - Awsome, but I have a request
So this app is awsome! I love it, but I do have a request. So I’m a trans guy (ftm) and I still have my period, so I was just wondering if there could be a secret chat for trans guys? I just think it would be nice to talk to others about this? Anyway great app!🖤
Biggie-Cheese - Whats the big deal?
Honestly i dont really care if facebook knows when im having my period. I dont care if everyone knows im on my period, in fact i would like them too know.
So people need to stop freaking out over the fact that our data is going to facebook.
This is a great app over all
Dave82at - Sharing data with Facebook
Flo shared private data with Facebook. Not the way to go.
CrazyLily_7876 - Pretty good
It’s a great app, it lets you track your feelings, your weight, symptoms etc.
Also, it’s quite accurate and it lets you log any day as your period if it does come unexpectedly.
The only problem I have is when you add your age, you must be 13 or older to log your period.
And it irritates me as I’m 11 and many girls my age and even younger get their period at such a young age.
Anyways, overall this app is great for tracking your periods and cycle.
Fingasick - Offensive insights
The features of this app are good, and I like the functionality and interface. After using it for 3 months, it’s quite accurate.
However, I find some of the “insights” to be offensive. Recent insights I’ve received include a post about making sure your vagina smells good, and a survey asking about “homosexual” sex. It’s clear that this app is not designed or maintained by women.
I’ll be switching to a different app.
chennelx - ...
It use to be a great app...until they updated it and you have to literally pay for everything. It’s very pricey as well. Imagine being young and just wanting to get some insight on your body, and people are trying to make profit off of that...that’s shady. I honestly do not recommend this app.
Lilbeasts - Late by
This new update removed the late for period by x days and now for each day late it just puts the start of your next period for the following day. It seems much less helpful now. It no longer tells you when you were originally expected to start bleeding
Pelly101 - I like it... but...
I like the app cause I can keep track of my moods cycles and more
But recently whenever I’ve tried edit my period dates, it kicks me out of the app all together and I kind of rely on that function a lot, so I think I’ll start looking for another app to use...
asluchevsky - Disappointed
When I came off birth control to start trying to have my son, I just needed an easy spot to track my period. While there were some other bells and whistles that were interesting, that was really all I ever used it for. Now a couple of years later, it’s essentially unusable for that purposes without paying for a subscription. All I want to do is enter my period dates, and I have to watch/click through ads (multiple) to do that? It’s way out of hand.
Chrystlin - Don’t bother unless you’re willing to pay
Honestly Flo used to be good but now it’s garbage. You can’t access anything without paying for premium. Not even the “health insights” that used to be free. They went from being a great source of information and period tracking to being a money grab. You could say the whole community aspect makes up for it but that has way more to do with the users than the app. The app seems to want to start divisive conversations and often asks really outdated and sexist questions. Seriously thinking of deleting it.
Kiki2336 - not like it used to be
i’ve been using flo for almost 6 years now and so many things have changed, and i don’t say that in a good way. nothing is free anymore, you have to pay for everything.
Chuzi64 - Was super good until the premium happened
I feel like its the best app but the premium thing is so annoying specially when you’re in the middle of reading something and then you cant continue cuz you have to pay for premium to continue it.
Jrpetts - What happened?!
I loved this app up until a few weeks ago when it started spamming my phone like crazy about things that I am not interested in and are somewhat offensive. I have played with the settings to no avail and contact support who told me to turn off the notifications all together. But I do want the ones relevant to me! I’m disappointed to uninstall.
Brittneyann, - Use a different app
It used to be really good and informative but now it just wants you to upgrade to give any information. Not worth it! There’s a thing called google which is free.
ivor🦝 - Women aren’t the only ones who have periods
Could you add a category for trans men or AFAB non-binary people? Women aren’t the only ones who get periods, there’s some other people who get them too.
Ti-T'homme - Helpful
awcatlady - The app is good but...
Flo is good app but I find it creepy how it knows when I am late for my period. I don’t tell it anything and somehow it just knows and most of the time it doesn’t even get it on the right days.
BoyceCaro - Belle application mais..
Fonction graphique n’est pas suffisante.. il n’y a rien pour visualiser sa température, etc.
Lpn2000nurse - App review
Great app, very easy to follow and understand. Its not the basic boring app, it has tons of information and interesting facts based on your symptoms as well
Lauren ☺ - Constantly requesting subscription
I have had Flo for probably 8 years now and it has changed so much since. It was great at the beginning, now it constantly requests you to upgrade to premium. Opening the app I have to dismiss and click through way too many things. I just want to track my cycle, they’re making it too complicated.
YA BETTER LIKE IT - ehh
its alright ig just i don't understand why u need a subscription to use this app? like periods are natural u might as well carry around a paper tracking your period then pay for someone else to do it when really in the first place its none of their business.
Itunesmaster8499 - Great app but way so pushy for Premium
I used to love this app and it still has a great layout and functionality. But it’s SO pushy to get you to upgrade to their paid premium version. Constantly giving me options and buttons to use and then shoving me to the paywall. It’s annoying enough to get me to quit using it.
You😘😁 - Whyyy
Great app for period tracking except every time you try to check your period it forces you to click on 500 things that you don’t need
floppykittiexo - Ads
Today I went to log my symptoms and got an add for a sale that I could not exit out of until I clicked "get my offer".
I just want to track my symptoms, y'all. Please don't make it so we have to go to a purchase page to exit out of an ad.
^jen^ - Annoying pushy
Every time you open the app, every time you check the calendar or tap anything.. really.. it tries to encourage you to pay for a subscription….
Caitlin obrien - Predicts my period accurately every time
This app is seriously incredible but I feel a bit used when it comes to making me pay for more insights.
The only sad thing is that they probably sell my data and then make me pay for Pro which is based on insights about my period data they just made money on.
PizzaPillow06 - Too Many Lefties
I hate the fact that my gender is being trivialized and erased in order to accommodate the mentally unwell. Plus, is very inaccurate and beginning to become a cash grab. Take your business to Clue or Apple Health - they're much better interfaces.
J🐷 - !!!
this is an amazing app but i hate all the gendered terms. not all people who get periods are women, alot of afab trans men and nonbinary folk do too. it can get tiring and sometimes invalidating when every period product/app is made for cis women.
dotheram - Not LGBTQ+ Friendly
I like the app a lot, it’s very aesthetically pleasing and well organised, but it ain’t LGBTQ+ friendly unfortunately, as in its very cis oriented. I believe that period apps should really take into consideration the sexuality of the person for it to be every more accurate to the individual using the app. For example if you’re lesbian, protected or unprotected sex doesn’t necessarily apply, nor does your chances of getting pregnant.
I may be the only one on this but sometimes when I try to be as accurate as possible for my period, some parts just don’t relate to me!
Astoria is gone - I'm so disappointed
I was enjoying this app until they started charging me to use it. Guess you only get a limited amount of free time on the app :/
Quincy577 - Not trans inclusive
Needs to be people with periods not women as nonbinary people and trans men also have periods and can elect to get pregnant
XmasMaddy - Gender neutral options
This app is amazing and helped me a lot with my period and stuff, but sometimes the way it addresses me bothers me. I’m non-binary and i would prefer if the app used my preferred pronouns they/them. it just makes me uncomfortable when people call me a girl or she. there’s also a lot of trans men on the app that are trying to track their periods but are being called girls too. i would like it if there was a setting so we can choose our gender or pronouns that we want the app to use.
cabbage user - Wanting you to pay for information that is free
I've noticed that all the health insight articles require a subscription now. I think that is ridiculous when I can simply go online and find similar health information for free from medical websites. Because you have now switched to requiring a subscription for free information, you've drastically reduced the usefulness of this app. Sure I can still track my period for free, but I can also simply track my own period just using a simple calendar and best guessing ovulation just like the app.
Bring back the free insights! Or I'll likely switch to another app or simply use the old fashioned calendar.
hdndbdnsmsmzh hx - dear flo,
i used to love this app because it allowed me to track whenever i needed too and majority of the time it was right! however, in the past month whenever i try to edit the date it closes the app and brings me to my home page. if you don’t get this fixed i will be deleting the app and finding a better one. thank you
RainStickland - Privacy Invasion
This app 'needs' your personal data to provide you with 'period tracking'. Things like your email account, Apple ID or Google account. What amounts to a calendar now wants to share your health and medical information with advertisers. There is no reason whatsoever for them to 'need' my easily stolen and misused data. You cannot even use the app without granting heinous privacy violation permissions to them for absolutely no logical reason. Why do they need my email address or Apple ID within the app itself? Why does it need to share that with its servers? I uninstalled this the moment I realized it is a prerequisite. I do not recommend this app to anyone unless they want their extremely personal information stolen.
Moonlight Cat 123 - Hey look..
I love being able to track my period and I like how accurate it is. Secret chats are fun too. Good design all around too.
My issue comes with the personal assistant telling me it has concerns over something I logged and asking me to take this survey to check for things that may need to be brought to a doctor’s attention, then slams me with asking me to pay premium.
Like. If I have possible reason for concern over my health, on a very accurately made app, but it hits me with that? That just seems insensitive and money-hungry. I understand making money. I just think that way of doing it is.. morally wrong.
Claraty Clare Clare - Pretty Good!
I’ve been using this app since I got my period (a month after I turned 10) and it’s great. It’s really fun to track what’s happening inside your body as it’s happening and through the years it’s always been accurate. I’ve never run into Facebook data issues but I am a tiny bit offended by the talk of making your vagina smell good and the articles about sexuality. It seems to me that it’s an app made for women, by men. I apologize if I’m wrong but it’s just kind of mean. Blood it coming out of me how am I supposed to smell good?? Anyway, overall it’s a good app. 👌
🌵🦋💗 - Did they take secret chats off of flo?!
Secret Chats were amazing and now I can’t find them in the appl please help!!
MsBubblesxo - Great just needs more options
When it comes to the physical activity and what not, there should be more options, such as house cleaning, basic walking, running errands, etc. There should also be a spot to put in the things you were craving if you had cravings. Maybe even a spot about what you ate that day?? Otherwise i like it!
Alisha630 - Would be 5 star but
This app is great overall! Predictions are usually accurate if you use the app correctly! However, recently when viewing cycle reports or other reports, the reports don’t finish the way they did before. the payment screen shows up to purchase additional access and the report freezes and won’t continue. I would like to finish viewing the rest of my report that is available with free access. Hopefully this can be fixed!
averageGirlie - Premium?
Great app, but the premium thing is really annoying. All the stuff that’s important is blocked off from girls who can’t pay for premium or are too scared to ask their parents. I would suggest making less article and whatever just for premium members. That’s definitely the only reason I didn’t give it five stars.
Em macles 10 - Change things
I really love flow it’s a great app and gives you notifications before you get you’re period but only one problem I would like more symptoms and it to be nicer looking kinda like the Eve app all of the symptoms are cute and pretty and there are a lot to choose from which is good.
CrystalMarie0326 - Very user friendly!
Easy to use! No complaints!
Aliushca - Love it!
I've never kept track of my monthly cycles until I stared using Flo app.
Now when doctors ask date of last period I always know which date to provide. Also when I'm feeling more emotional than usual, I'll check the app to see when that time of month is.. if it's week before I immediately calm down knowing I'm not having a problem with any issues except my hormones. Love it!
TeddyDoucette - I get it. I was assigned female. Shut up about it
Im Nonbinary (he/they) who recently stopped the bc that stopped my period for 5 years. Never had a cycle tracker. This one, specifically, calls you a woman every chance it gets. I get it but 5 times in one minute is too many. Never using this app again.
vanessaaaa! - don’t recommend if u r young like me
i’m 11 years old (born in 2008) and it won’t let me say my real age!!! i really don’t want to lie bc this stuff is rly important!! you guys should definitely change that bc u can get ur period when your as young as 8 :((
J102364 - Good intentions, not executed so well.
While I think this app has good intentions, it doesn’t always execute it well.
-Forums seem at first like a good idea, but they don’t always work out. In sections where younger people who got their periods more recently are talking, a lot of misinformation is being spread, which I believe could have a long term impact on someone reading. The problem is that the people giving answers are just as clueless as those seeking them.
-This app is very gendered. It constantly talks about people who have periods as ‘girls’ or ‘women’. They ignore the fact that not everyone who gets a period is a women, and standards like that can cause a lot of hurt to those who get periods but do not identify as female.
Otherwise, it’s an alright app for tracking periods. I just found it very hard to use because the amount of misinformation spread through this app bothered me. I feel like just a period tracker would have been enough.
Elimyanne - Disappointing
The info was helpful for the first 2 trimesters, but I felt abandoned in the 3rd! As someone expecting their first child, I was really hoping to rely on and utilize the info and support provided particularly during the final stretch of my pregnancy. Instead the weekly articles started to become less frequent and were shorter in length. It really felt like no effort was made to write them at all. There were even grammar and spelling mistakes during the 39th week, which just seems lazy. There definitely could have been more info about labor, birth, and what the baby/my body were doing during the final few weeks. Disappointing!
onpred - Good
It’s a very good app for women🥰
Love ya justin bieber - Not there for me
Flo used to be there for me Flo used to tell me things about my heath now if you want to know things you have to pay all they seem to care about is money now… just make the app free and put on some advertising:(
