Wowwwwzaaaaa05 - THIS is THE app
If you need a period app, this is the way to go. I read Alissa Vito’s book In The Flo and it has changed my life.
Learning that women live on a 28 DAY cycle instead of a 24 HOUR cycle (which men’s bodies do) was a total game changer.
Not only does this app help you track your period with insane accuracy, they also give you insights on how to treat your body, mind, and spirit well throughout all FOUR phases of your cycle.
It gives you tips on what to eat, how to exercise, and the best ways to socialize treat yourself, and e in a relationship during each phase of your cycle.
I had so many symptoms every period but after syncing with my cycle they all went away! This app is a god send!
Sarahsiders - After years of use, I’m so disappointed
I have used this app and recommended it to others for years. I love the functional medicine approach, Alissa’s books and the cycle syncing method. I’ve spent years inputting my data into the app for various reasons as my cycle has always been problematic for me. For the last month, the app will not even open. This happened once before and tech support told me they could not address it and I would need to delete the app and download it again. This means that months and months of notes and data are gone! I have not put this information anywhere else except the app because it was the one place I could track patterns and get suggestions. I feel very angry and sad that all these years of information are likely gone forever. As a therapist who works with women, I have recommended the app to many others for the benefit of connecting mood and cycles but I can no longer do that because the app is so dysfunctional. This is not what the Flo Living model is about, and I am very disappointed in the company for promising and not delivering on this. I recommend this app be moved to an account rather that merely an app. If I had an account with FloLiving, I could input the information and access it via the account. As it is now, the app retains my data and it is not stored anywhere else so when the app doesn’t work, the data is gone. As it stands now, do not download the app until this is addressed.
AndyRdgz1103 - Started great at first....
When I first downloaded this app, I was so happy at how accurate it was. A feature I particularly loved was how I was able to input my daily symptoms and the app gave me accurate explanations for them, as well as recommendations on minimizing any unwanted symptoms. After a few months of use, however, I’m not able to input my symptoms, that includes any past or present symptoms (I like looking back to see if I’ve made any improvement). It kinda highlights the date and that’s it, I’m not able to click it. It does let you add your period start date, but I figure the whole point is to track your months progress :(
It’s a bit disappointing since I used to ALWAYS be in this app, but since this started happening I haven’t been using it much (I do check every now and then to see if this issue has been fixed and unfortunately it hasn’t). I’m not sure if this is just a bug in the app that needs fixing. I’m up to date on the latest version, so I don’t think its an update issue. I hope they fix it soon, this used to be my favorite app to track my period! Giving 3 stars because it worked well at one point, it’s not working now, but I’m hoping it’ll work again in the near future.
Kk13820 - glitchy glitchy
like many of the other reviews say, this would be such a great app IF it worked. I’m a big fan of Alisa Vitti’s work and that’s what compelled me to purchase this app (it’s the only paid app i have) but luckily i have two other trackers that are reliable. A month into use and suddenly I can’t add any symptoms to my chart, and that is SO frustrating when you are ttc and having trouble nailing the ovulation window. I heard her on a podcast recently saying this is one of the top paid apps for women’s health....if that’s the case why doesn’t it work? how can you keep charging for it if you can’t work out the bugs? So many AMAZING charting apps are free and I would so rather give money to something at least trying to be what it says it is. I would buy the books over and over to support this work but at least the money would deliver something it had promised! and i have to echo an earlier review- the partner feature assumes you are with a man, which is just painfully ignorant. I’m still a huge fan of everything this brand has created, but i’m glad i have other charts to turn to and it definitely leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
As of writing, this app hasn’t gotten an update in 10 mo despite a developer response that great new things were coming (a year ago).
Meowzin - If you make a mistake scheduling...
Per the FAQ, if you accidentally schedule a cycle incorrectly there is not a way to delete it. The options are to manually edit the data or DELETE THE APP AND CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT. How is this a realistic solution? (btw you have to go to the FAQs to even get to the edit option.)
The idea and info within the application are great and really informative. But the most basic of calendar features are far below my realistic expectations. I’ve been using Clue to track my cycles for years and enjoy it, but following a recommendation I purchased this app with the intention of gaining more insight on actionable steps to take to improve and understand your individual cycle. Personally I find the design a bit flat and gimmicky towards women, in that the color palette and wording skews stereotypically feminine like a tacky tampon commercial. It just doesn’t resonate with me; women don’t need to be marketed to about having a period— it’s a fact of life and is oddly softened and glamorized in media lol. I want to feel empowered, not pandered to, you know? The content of what you can learn about your unique phases is fantastic, but so far the experience is lacking so I’m waiting on an overhaul of the interface if I’m to use it again. Because I really would like to learn the insights it could provide!
Kattttttttttx0 - This app would be so much better if it was actually customizable
This app really makes no sense. The suggestions are great and the way it tracks your symptoms and what not but the key thing I need it to do is to track my period which it is not accurate and I cannot make it accurate. My period almost never starts on the day that this app says and it’s because I can never edit when my period actually starts without erasing all the data already put in. For example: If it says my period is going to start on the 10th but it actually starts on the 12th the app does not let you edit your period week to reflect that so the dates are always off. If you”schedule a new period” you erase all your data from the month before and lose everything and have to start from day 1 so all the data gathered about your symptoms just washes away. This app has great suggestions and explanations about symptoms but I need it to track my period accurately, which it does not. This is a problem for people who have inconsistent cycles. Also!! There’s no increase hunger option on the symptoms!! It has “cravings” but I don’t have cravings im starving lol.
Morgan_a92 - Not Impressed
I had listened to a podcast in which Alisa had talked about this app and how it included ideas for how to eat and exercise during each phase of your cycle. I downloaded the app thinking that it would take a lot of the guess work out of the tumultuous relationship that I have with my cycle. I was so disappointed that the “food” suggestions are limited to three or four items, rather than the robust list that I was hoping for to help me create more meal plans from. The exercise suggestions are okay- I’ll give the app the benefit of the doubt and try to implement some of the suggested intensity (or lack thereof) levels advised for each phase of my cycle to see how it affects me. I suppose the app could be useful for those who make the in-app purchases, but truth be told, considering there wasn’t anything advertised upon downloading the app that said “in-app purchases,” I was jaded into thinking I was getting a really great deal for the $1.99 that I paid. That just wasn’t the case. If you want the most out of this app, just know that you’ll be dropping another $1k+ in addition to the cost of the app.
Overall, just really unimpressed. I’ve gotten better value out of the free Clue app that I use for cycle tracking and will continue using that over this.
Beddy620 - Great advice, poor estimation/calibration
I’ve used this app for years but the past few months it’s gotten worse. It doesn’t seem to adjust my estimated cycle due to the current average length of cycles anymore, making it usually 2-4 days off on its estimate of when my menstrual phase will start. It used to take previous data and make better estimations on cycle length, now it seems to just be stuck at 25 days when my average cycle is closer to 27-28 days. This also incorrectly estimates my ovulation, making that 2-4 days off as well. Doesn’t seem like a big deal but now that conception is a goal of mine, being 2-4 days off is a big issue. I also liked how it used to send my partner emails letting him know what phase of my cycle I was in and how he could best support me, which it no longer does either. Unfortunately after years of using this app, I’ve decided to track my cycles with a new one due to the poor calibration of data.
It does still have some good features, hence the 3 star rating. It has great advice for movement, nutrition and goals/productivity for where you are in your cycle. For that, i will still refer back to it from time to time.
Mia nic - Good, could use some improvement
I recently downloaded this app and so far am generally pleased with the experience. I love that MyFlo gives you specific recommendations based on your symptoms and current phase in your cycle — this is very helpful and informative. However, I would like to see more in terms of emotional wellness. For example, I would really like to see specific symptoms (and corresponding recommendations) related to mood such as anxiety, irritability, happiness, sadness, apathy, calmness, depression, etc. I believe these are important aspects of/insights into our cycles and provide valuable information about our health and wellbeing. Having recommendations for various mood-related symptoms such as these would greatly help so many women/menstruating people. I also do not love the format/functionality of the app but it is user-friendly and overall would recommend. For these reasons I will continue to use my previous tracking app alongside this one, but hope to see this app grow in the future and overall would definitely recommend!
Splinter14 - Too many glitches + not queer friendly
I love the idea behind this app, but there are too many glitches that go unanswered (for example, I can’t even add notes right now to each day, the app is just frozen). I’ve emailed support about these glitches 2ce in the past year to no response. It’s also not queer friendly. My parter is a woman, not a man, and the language embedded in the app assumes I’m dating a man. Tbh you might want to consider that a large portion of your following might be 2 queer women who desperately want to get email updates about their partner’s flo. I’m bias, but we’re loyal consumers in the period arena. I’m disappointed because this was my favorite app so far with tracking my cycle. Especially disappointed because the cost of the app suggested a certain level of functionality that simply does not exist and has not for over a year. Ultimately, it seems like just a fancy ad for her book and a way to fund her work (which I’m all about! It’s important work!). Buuuuuuttttt in that case the app should be free until you can afford to make the app useable. Please don’t review her supplements here, as that could not be less helpful to me or anyone else browsing the App Store for a period tracker app.
Emily Medaglia - Life-changing but the app is very glitchy
I want to like this app. Alisa Vitti and her teachings have helped me eradicate cramps, mood swings during my luteal phase and I have learned so much about my body in the last 3 months. But this isn’t personal towards that at all or towards Alisa. The app is subpar. It has erased my data 2 different times (like entire months worth of logging in information). I’ll go into the app and POOF - everything is gone from the last 2 months. I’ve reached out to the tech team and their instruction led me to delete my data again, and I followed their instructions to the t. Losing all my logged in information is extremely frustrating and feels like a hugeee waste of energy and time.
I really hope they update this app, make it more interactive and filled with information. I also really, really hope they’re able to fix whatever bugs are causing it to glitch and delete info. As much as I’m upset about it I still want it to work :-/ hopefully they’ll get it to be fixed soon. I have other apps downloaded that I’ll be looking at, can’t afford to lose my info again.
Quark159 - Nice, but missing some features
Love how the app lets you track symptoms, gives you recommendations, tells you what that symptom means, let’s you change the start and end date of present and past periods. Overall, I like it. DO NOT use the app to prevent pregnancy, did not accurately tell me when I was ovulating. Missing features to include tracking pregnancy on chart and end of pregnancy (termination or miscarriage). Found out I was 6 weeks pregnant end of May, the pregnancy ended a couple weeks later. I am on my 4th cycle after that and my period calculator still says my cycle comes every 40+ days when it has been a regular 28 day cycle. I like the app, but wish they would include new pregnancy/end of pregnancy buttons, symptoms, etc just like like the menstrual cycle info. And use this info to update the menstrual cycle algorithm. Again, DO NOT use the app to prevent pregnancy. I think I ovulate much earlier in my cycle than what I thought (and what is traditionally taught in school ~14 days).
Coolappgirluser - Bad app, shames hormonal BC users
DO NOT PURCHASE! **bad tech, shaming hormonal BC, trans-exclusive**
It’s not just that this app is incredibly poorly run. It’s constantly glitching, telling me I am on two separate stages of my cycle at the same time. Tech support was no help; they only told me to uninstall and re-install my app which did nothing. They also ignored my follow up email.
What’s WORSE is that when you subscribe to this app, you unknowingly pay two dollars to get shaming emails into your inbox all the time about how it is the most disgusting thing in the world to be on hormonal birth control. The content of these emails is only meant to shame women who make the choice to go on hormonal birth control for whatever personal contraceptive or noncontraceptive reason that they have, without offering solutions other than what is presumably the pull out method? It’s so despicable to me that this organization preaches bodily autonomy and knowledge for people who menstruate and turns around to shame people who make a choice in their lives about contraception. And another thing: they use only “women“ in their content, which is incredibly trans in gender non-binary exclusive. DO NOT PURCHASE.
Mlayner - Great Concept, Poor Tech
Firstly, I really like the features of this app. I love that it recommends food, exercise, work, and lifestyle suggestions for each phase. I also like how I can log symptoms and it gives helpful info as to why you might be having those symptoms as well as tips to reduce any unwanted symptoms.
What I don’t love about this app is how glitchy it is. It regularly takes forever to load, sometimes just doesn’t load at all and I have to go delete the app and then reinstall it for it to work again. It also keeps showing that my cycle is 26 days when I’ve been logging 28 day cycles for over a year now. Sometimes the calendar is glitchy and doesn’t let me end yet symptoms or change a previous cycle. Sometimes certain buttons just don’t work.
I would give this app 5 stars if they solved the tech issues. It makes it really inconvenient to have an app that doesn’t work half the time. Deleting and reinstalling regularly is annoying and inconvenient too. It would just be nice to have an app that works like it’s supposed to.
Thechubblife - Has potential but not there yet
I had heard great things about this app and was very interested to try it out for the cycle recommendations. While I do like the cycle recommendations, the options for symptoms are very limited and I’m now unable to add notes for any day that isn’t during my menstrual phase whereas I could previously. This is a problem for a number of reasons-the biggest being that this app is intended to help the user cycle-sync and understand their hormonal symptoms which is not possible if the user can’t add all of their symptoms.
I also like to keep track of when I’m “intimate” with my partner. I don’t have the intent of becoming pregnant and, while I am on contraception, I find it helpful to keep track of thy activity. Having that feature could also be helpful to a user who IS trying to become pregnant.
All in all, this app has the potential to be great but it’s not there yet. More symptoms and the ability to add symptoms/notes on all days needs to be added. Until then, I’ll still use (in addition) my trusty Period Tracker Lite as my go-to for detailed tracking.
Early intervention queen - Great information but the app itself needs work
This is by far the most informative period tracker I have tried. It has huge potential for improving wellbeing. However, the app doesn’t always feel native. It doesn’t have support for ApplePay. I tried to purchase some additional support and even PayPal didn’t connect correctly, so I couldn’t make the purchase. Also I don’t understand why it doesn’t seem to be syncing with Apple Health. I’ve been using another app for period tracking, and I don’t see why it can’t see some of that information. I want to use this app and enjoy it. I want to purchase with ApplePay. I want them to make it easy for me to feel better and use their app to improve my health. I want to pay you money and you’re making it hard for me to do that. It’s energy I should be spending on feeling better. You have the best information and I want it to be easy to access it.
Nattiek - Super glitchy
One month into using the app I stopped being able to input symptoms, the day would highlight but nothing would happen. So I uninstalled and reinstalled the app, but it lost all my information. That was a bummer, but I kept using it because it started working fine again. I tracked everything for a month and then the same thing happened, I couldn’t input my symptoms. I emailed tech support about it and they told me to uninstall and reinstall, I told them I did that before and it lost all my info, they told me that doesn’t happen. What the what?! But I did it anyways, this time all my info reappeared after reinstall which was good. But then it literally happened again, near the end of the month it stopped letting me input symptoms. Having to uninstall and reinstall this app every month this is ridiculous! Reading others reviews this seems like a really common issue so I’m not sure why it’s not being addressed?
Maritalplans - GREAT idea, needs lots of work
I was so excited when I first got this app. All the functions were working great and it is so much more than a cycle tracking app. HOWEVER, after just four weeks of use, the app suddenly wouldnt open anymore. I ended up reinstalling it as a last attempt, but when I logged back in, it treated me as a new user and all my data for the month was gone! Such a waste and disappointment.
As of this review, the last update to the app was 7 mo ago—totally unacceptable in the world of apps. After reading other reviews, it seems this problem has been going on for months with no action from the developer who, by the way, still continues to collect money for a faulty app.
For the developer, I suggest pulling the app out of the store until you have dedicated resources to keep up with the functionality of the app. Currently, it’s not worth $2 and it’s harming the reputation of the other awesome work you’ve done in this area. I’d love to come back and try again once you get it together but for now, Im moving on.
Emily M. S. - App Doesn’t Work
This app is not as dynamic or editable as the Flo app. I can’t edit my period dates, therefore my cycle predictions are wrong. I thought it might be a temporary bug but this app hasn’t improved for months now. It predicts my cycle as being 2 weeks long, which is not correct due to not being able to edit my period dates. For example, if I forget to log my period started until a few days after it started, I can’t select a previous date. I try to, but it just glitches and won’t accept the date.
It doesn’t have as many data tracking options as Flo. Not as many symptoms, moods, etc. Generally lacking in symptoms/things to track. Flo app is much more dynamic than MyFLO. I’ve been using Flo for years now. And I was excited about MyFLO after learning about this program. But very disappointed with this app, especially since it costs money and Flo does not.
I find the food and exercise tips helpful but that information can be found in her book. Until this app is improved, don’t waste your $5.
Rybaldi - Frustrating to use
I was excited to start using this app when I heard an interview discussing it. It was a bit frustrating to pay for the app and then find out I had to pay more money for more information. I was still able to learn some basic and helpful info without paying more money though.
My biggest frustration is that I paid for the app and it is incredibly slow/doesn’t have good functionality. I’d expect something I paid for to work better than free apps. It takes a while to open. But once open, it is difficult to add symptoms since there is a lag time between clicking on a day and when the “enter symptoms” box opens. There is also a lag time when I go to “save.” So I click again and end up opening something else inadvertently, which I have to patiently wait to close. I end up not really using the app much because it is so frustrating to navigate.
HNE31 - Not worth paying for!
As many other reviewers have said, the app is very glitchy. I’ve had multiple instances where I try to “edit” symptoms for the day and I’m not able to do so. I was told to delete and re-download the app, which worked... for a a few weeks. It’s back to glitching again. The information it provides is useful, but it’s also the exact same information every time (ex: acne, probably due to liver congestion from excess estrogen) vs changing based on your data. You really could just skim the book or take a picture of the symptoms to refer back to when you’re experiencing them and need a reminder of what might be helpful and use a different app to track symptoms and cycle (and there are TONS of apps to try, I really like Ovia). I expected WAY more from an app I was paying for. Many of the free apps provide far more useful information. I’m deleting this and will not use again.
RavnBee - Not functional
Heard about how amazing this app is about tracking certain things. Tried it & loved it. However the app itself needs a lot of work. Some pages you can’t go back to the previous page. Upon being in my Luteal phase, & skipping a period (I’m irregular with my cycle), it won’t allow me to input any more data. When taping the day, the number turns black. If there’s a limit of days for being in a cycle then that needs to be fixed. Thought the whole point of the app was to track YOUR cycle, not how many days the app allows you to record data per cycle.
With what it has as of now, I do think more options could be added in the “symptoms” section. Example, if I’m feeling nauseous one day, maybe it’s because I had food poisoning”? Just to make it a bit more detailed without the app thinking it’s because I didn’t get enough sleep, etc.
Really want to use this app, as it has huge potential. However it doesn’t function properly, and think it needs a revamp.
Nattoh80 - Janky but well intentioned app!
Love the concept and help but have to repeatedly at least once a month delete and reinstall bc of janky ness. Mostly, the app just freezes when you click a date and won’t let you add any data.
I hope the developers continue to support it. The concerning part is that you pay for it and that issue has been ongoing since I got the app over a year ago. You’d think if someone were on it, there would have been at least a few bug fixes by now.
I love the suggestions and the symptoms and break down of the phases.
I hate the calendar view and wish they made a circle/wheel view too, that feels more like a cycle to me and helps me visualize the phase better too.
I’d settle for just fixing the bugs so I don’t have to delete and reinstall about every 5th time I open the app. Major nuisance.
Loucrecia - So far I’m disappointed.
I’ve had this app for about a month. For one thing, it was supposed to cost $1.99 to purchase, but for some reason I was charged a little more. Maybe it was taxes, I don’t know, but it would’ve been nice to be told & not just get a surprise.
I’ve also had some issues with bugs...having trouble getting the app to work right at times. I’ve removed & reinstalled it at least twice because of this, which is aggravating to have to keep doing that, especially considering I’ve only had it for a month.
But my biggest disappointment is how, although there is some helpful information shared as far as how to improve symptoms & a few other things to focus on during each part of your cycle, the main focus seems to be to sell these special programs that are outrageously priced! So, the amount of free information is very limited. I kind of wish I’d just opted for a free tracker.
Mrs Stacy W - Not worth it! Doesn’t work!
I’ve had this period tracker for several months and have tried to make it work for me, but it doesn’t. First, I love the information it provides based off where you are at in your cycle. This has helped me to become more in tune with symptoms and to better understand the different phases. However, the app simply doesn’t work! Every couple weeks, it stops working. I have to delete the app and then reinstall it. In a three month period, I’ve had to do this 5 times. It gets to a point where it either won’t allow me to enter any data on a particular date or my previous data disappears. Uninstalling and reinstalling wouldn’t be that big of a deal if it didn’t then pose login problems. It’s a point now where I repeatedly get an error message when attempting to login or even use the “reset your password” feature. In my opinion, there are too many free period tracking apps out there that work better. This one isn’t worth it.
Imwritingareviewsam - Great app in theory
I was so excited to use this app and track my symptoms and keep track of my period, but it never seems to work quite right. It lets you put in your daily symptoms, but won’t let you go back and read it at a later date. The most annoying part was that I would still be on my period, but the app wouldn’t let me enter when I finished my period. It just automatically ended it and wouldn’t let me change it. In addition, I just track my period this past week, but the app doesn’t have the emojis next to those dates like it should so now I have no idea what day I started. It’s supposed to highlight the days in different shades so you know what phase you’re in, but it was not accurate at all. I would be on my period starting on February 22 and then it’s say my next period would be March 4th, with all the phases in between squished in that short time frame. Don’t buy this app. It’s a waste and very frustrating.
Femmefan88 - Really good app that could be great with updates!
I never write reviews but I love love love this app/idea enough to ask for some edits to make it even better. Only app of its kind I can really find. Would love to see it be updated in response to all the reviews.
-Right now any selection of the “Cramps” symptom under “I am experiencing” displays recommendations based on mid-cycle ovulation cramping, which is obviously a mistake. A bit annoying bc managing cramps is a major reason I use the app!
-More options for tracking under “I am experiencing” for both negative symptoms and positive signs - at the very least, please add some buttons for mental health/energy like “Inattentive” “High Energy” “Anxious” “Focused” “Distracted” “Verbal” “Inward Focused” “Sociable”
-This is a long shot but would really distinguish the app: Allow the tracking of more than one person’s cycle (like multiple calendars you could toggle between) - for family and friends of the user. I would love to track my partner’s cycle on the same app.
-Please disclose your privacy practices. This is very sensitive to e info and we deserve to know what’s being done with it, and to opt in or opt out.
Missodessa - JUST TERRIBLE DONT WASTE YOUR $ or TIME.
The apps functionality is so bad all this did was add another layer of stress to my life. I'll go back to using my calendar app to log my period because this is just a big NOPE for me. This app will not let me add the end date of my period it just decides when my end day is. my period doesn't last the same amount of days every month so this is stupid. Also this app is currently telling me I'm menstrating until September after just finishing my period so I'm not sure if this app has some sort of bugs that need to be worked out but it's too much of a mess to use. You would think adding a start and end date to my period would be simple no this app complicates everything by giving you little control which is pointless.
It's telling me I'm 60 days late on my period as I'm trying to add the period I'm currently having which it will not let me. I'm deleting the app off my phone.
Bearah0 - Life Changer
I would never have described myself as affected my my hormones. Naturally positive, energetic and self-motivated every day of the month. However consistently (albeit loosely) following the food suggestions for hormones has been a GAME CHANGER for me! I have more momentum, follow through, inspiration... I can go on. For real bullying/peer pressuring every single one of my friends (not on an IUD) into following this. INCESSANTLY. I was experiencing a noticeable change to my daily life after 6 weeks of being intentional. Mama Mia, do yourself a favor and get this!!
1) follow the phases
2) log your symptoms
Phase info and recommendations from symptoms have made a HUGE difference... and I wasn’t even struggling! I’d pay $500 for the benefits I’ve gotten from this app and awareness.
Jkshdiirf - MyFLO
I purchased MYFLO supplements that promise a better period after one month. I was skeptical at first bc it just didnt seem realistic. I’ve been suffering with long periods my whole life (I would bleed for 2 months most the time 😭) and was willing to try anything besides birth control. I finally purchased these supplements at 27 years old (after many years of dealing with this horrible period) and within one month I had normal period just like the website promised . I literally didn’t change a thing. I kept my diet the same and I don’t have a good diet (working on that next) I am so happy I made the decision to purchase the supplements and the app. It has change my life ! The app has helped me realize how on track I am.
Deitramag - Where Has This Been All My Life?!
As I was reading about some scary lady symptoms I’m experiencing, I came across a really comforting article written by the woman who created this app. Who knew someone could comfort me so fully just by helping me understand my body. I literally cried because I’ve never once experienced such a deep sense of care from any gyno/doctor in my entire life. And she did it in one article! I downloaded this app immediately, and I can't believe nobody has created this sooner. A lifetime of sucky periods, and terrible hormonal cycles, and I'm just now getting to learn how to fix it. I’m a huge believer in using food as medicine, so this is right up my alley. It feels so validating to have something that fully supports that method.
Episteme - Clean & Simple App
Most of the menstrual and ovulation tracking apps on the market today are the most ridiculous, comical things I have seen, but not this one. It is simply designed, simple to understand, and doesn’t overwhelm you with information. Most of the apps these days treat you like you are a teenager who needs bells, whistles, and emojis to understand anything. There really does need to be an industry intervention to stop this foolishness. I couldn’t take it. I am so glad I found MyFlo. It tells me only the essential information I need and doesn’t treat me like a 13 year old. It treats me like the 45 year old woman I am. Thank you! 🙏🏽
Chelsea A. H. - Glitchy
I’ve been using this app for years and it has always had a few bugs, but I really liked how it informed you about all your different hormonal cycles. For the past month, however, the app just won’t open. It’s stuck on “checking for updates” permanently. I’m going to attempt to delete the app and reinstall but I’m bummed about losing my past data. Also, since I haven’t been able to check the app, I was unhappily surprised by my period today 🙄
Update. Now that I’ve forfeited my data and downloaded the app all over again , it’s just stuck on ‘getting data for the first time.’ And then it tells me that I should check my internet connection. I’m literally sitting three feet from my router and every other app and browser is working just fine. Really frustrated. Knocking off another star.
Chicago witch - Internal server error
Firstly, the app had a major design problem in that when I opened it, it said it was searching for updates for several minutes but then it would not prompt you to update, it just got stuck on the loading screen. Then, I updated manually, had to sign in again, and I was prompted to change my password. Tried to change password and I keep getting an “internal server error” message, making it impossible to access the app. The timing of this is kind of suspicious to me. Considering the recent leak about the repeal of Roe v Wade and the data that this app has access to, I’m concerned with how my information is being used while I don’t have access to it. Fix this! Give us a progress update! Something! There are tons of reviews complaining about this already. I’m grateful I didn’t enter more specific data besides just tracking the dates
Littlesunflowersoul - It Just Stops Working
I began using this app many months ago and loved it. I’m not sure what changed but the app won’t even open for me anymore - even after deleting/re-downloading it. Prior to this glitch, I noticed numerous issues in the app while trying to input my symptoms and tracking my month. It wouldn’t allow me to input a period I had missed (due to glitches) at the time. It’s become less and less useful to me. I was super excited to learn with this app as I had begun diving into the book as well and had begun trying to rebalance my hormones I purchased from the site. It’s disappointing. I hope this app can get things together again to make it useful. At this moment and time though, I will be using a different app and I have to say this app is not currently worth the money it costs, unfortunately. 😔
Carlzmoney - Great app, just needs a few improvements
I love the content on the app and find it very helpful and interesting to learn about the different phases of my cycle. The app constantly sends me notifications that I’m in a new cycle and usually it’s the wrong one. For example today it told me I’m in my menstrual cycle (kinda freaky) and then it later notified me that I’m starting my luteal cycle. When I open the app it’s accurate though it’s just the push notis that are false. It also needs to be easier to edit the period dates. Still a good app that I am happy with though. Update-looking at my calendar it’s telling me that My menstrual cycle happens twice this month. Very confusing. Also, my period doesn’t last that long so I wish there was a way to pick that date range
Bkozel - Unreliable at best
So disappointed in this app. First of all, once you set up your cycle length when starting the app, you can’t change it. This was a bummer since the app inexplicably changed mine to 37(!) days a few weeks after I set it up. The only way to fix this is to reset the whole app, losing all your data. After i transcribed weeks of data and reset, I was unable to re-input all the data as this app is EXTREMELY GLITCHY and wouldn’t let me access days to add symptoms and notes. This was a huge waste of time, and honestly it feels pretty predatory how many opportunities they take to try to sell their “programs” that cost THOUSANDS of dollars. I appreciate some features like the cycle-specific recommendations for exercise, diet, etc, but there are plenty of books that have this information. Not worth the struggle of losing weeks of tirelessly tracked data because the app is not sound. Skip it.
DAriesKOTA - Good Information, Needs Work
The information is good, there are recommendations for different symptoms etc and then links to Vitti programs for more in-depth work. Unfortunately, the recommendations are just marked by the date which makes it hard to go back and find specific ones when you don’t remember what day you had the symptom. When scrolling through the calendar it continuously prompts you to add symptoms every time you scroll because it’s so sensitive.
Things that would be helpful:
-Showing only the current cycle in the home screen
-A place where it tells you what number day of your cycle you are on
-Having past cycles (i.e. year calendar) on a history tab
-More sophisticated tracking of recurring symptoms
-More sophisticated tracking for positive eating/lifestyle (i.e. able to track seep daily, common inflammatory foods like dairy/gluten, the type of exercise)
-The language is definitely not always inclusive
-Happy to have the partner emails
-Love that it prompts you to schedule things based on the phases of your cycle
-The colors and design are nice
Looking forward to keeping this as a secondary period-tracking app and watching for improvements! It’s definitely a game changer and could really make a difference!!!
Ululay2022 - Days since app failure
I love this app and have been using it for years now. I have recommended it to multiple friends and usually only have good things to say about it. Except, it’s been about a week since it stopped opening and sires internet connection issues. I have restarted my phone, used different internet connections, deleted and redownloaded the app… and then went to google to see if I was the only one.
Turns out there is a whole Facebook community complaining about the same thing. I’m super bummed that they have not addressed the issue and haven’t even sent any update or posted anything on their website to give the users any information about when it will be back up and running.
Rebeccatoner - Loved it at first
I’ve been using this app religiously for several years, and I love the ability to see different recommendations for different cycle phases and share with my partner or doctor if needed. However, for several weeks, with the worst being today, the app does not function properly. I cannot input new data. When I click the date to add symptoms, the date just sort of… stays stuck on highlight, and I can’t do anything else in the screen. I’ve closed the app and reopened, I’ve removed it and re-downloaded it. I am disappointed that such potential has been wasted, no updates appear to have been made in over two years, and tech support is nil. I’ll be going with a different app that doesn’t give me extra issues when there’s enough to manage.
Zarinah95! - Great idea with room for improvement
I have listened to many podcasts and have read her book. I’ve got to say, it’s quite a revolutionary concept in terms of taking control of our bodies and health. However my main complaint with app is how many times I’ve had to re-download it because it freezes when you try to log symptoms. I don’t mind because I like the app but I would highly recommend that the developers figure out another update soon, which I’m sure they’ve looked into already. I’ll give it five stars when I don’t have to download it every month 😊
Rkmiron - App could use some work
Love the concept, but the app could use some work. For one, there’s a persistent glitch that many have mentioned. At a certain point, the app stops letting you add symptoms. You have to delete and re-download. Not the end of the world because your data is saved in your account, but still annoying. Then there’s the app itself. It’s a tracking app, but it doesn’t summarize the data to tell you anything. I can only look at my symptoms on individual days. The app doesn’t tell me if for instance, “cravings” is my most common symptom. I would expect to be able to see these symptoms in a chart or graph to really be able to understand how often I’m experiencing a symptom and how how to address it
Aidhwowhcjska - Good App but not LGBTQ Friendly
I RARELY write reviews especially ones with criticisms, but I feel this is something that needs to be said. I love this app and all of the tips it gives with symptoms. I could take or leave the pushes to sell their products but hey, I get it. Gotta pay the bills. I am a cis woman who is in a relationship with a woman. Something that irritates me about this app is it defaults to tips about my relationship with my partner as if it is a man. It’s 2021. Not every woman is in a relationship and not every woman is with a man. And cis women aren’t the only ones who bleed. This is a quality app with good tips, but please stop thinking that because I have a uterus I must be with a man. Thank you!!!! 🏳️🌈🏳️🌈
BrownsGalore - So helpful!
Each month because of feedback and suggestions I receive after using the tracker, my period is improving! It used to feel like 2 weeks of every month we’re lost to me because of super low energy, mood swings and physical discomfort.
This month only had one day of that kind of low energy - just before cycle started AND no eye headache accompanied this switch in hormones. I am turning 50 in July and this should be when I start saying things are getting harder because of my hormones but actually they are the best they have ever been : ) thanks so much!!!
LokiBabe - App will not work.
I started reading the book that was wrote by the author who I assume created this app. That is what made me download and purchase the app. Its been a few weeks of tracking; loved the insights, recommendations & advice it gave to me. Now I am unable to even sign into the app. Ive tried all problem solving solutions and still nothing. The app is telling me not connected to the internet, none of my other apps are telling me this while I try to open them. To be honest I loved this app and being able to track and follow my cycle. Please fix this glitch! I have read some other similar reviews.
So after deleting and re downloading I thought maybe all the bugs had been worked out. Now I am unable to edit or put in my symptoms
PLEASE FIX THIS APP
Catiecade - So many glitches/crashes lately
Don't know what's going on. This is my fave app for the recommendations/analysis it gives you about your cycle. But my god, for the last two months it hasn't let me log any info! And then when I try to open it, sometimes it just crashes. Have downloaded other apps since ~ may just purchase another one like Clue.
I got some feedback about resetting the app, and that fixed the glitch. But for the past 6 months or so, the app hasn't been predicting my cycles correctly despite entering all my info every month (I'm very regular). I uploaded another app I used to use and it predicted my cycle perfectly within one month. I guess this app just isn't working for me anymore.
Sophie Cowger - Really bummed!
After reading the reviews I thought this app sounded like exactly what I’ve been looking for to track my cycle and corresponding symptoms and identify patterns. Unfortunately I have had so many tech issues with the app not working that I have barely been able to use it in the three months I have had it. I’ve been trying to log my period for 9 days now and haven’t been able to get in - it just says “checking for updates” forever. Today I tried again and was prompted to reset my password and it keeps giving me internal errors every time I pick a new password. I am too annoyed to keep checking back, and am forgetting all the things I wanted to log and what days. Hope this works better for other people!
Roglows - Not a good app
I next to never leave negative reviews but I have to here. There are free period trackers better than this. The concept of MyFLO is great, but the app itself it just not functional or easy to use. If my period starts at a different day than the app thinks it will and I have to manually change it, then it seems to throw off my whole cycle.
So basically none of the info it’s giving me (in terms of my current stage and potential symptoms and help) is accurate. Right now it has me as 6 days late...but my period starts tomorrow. This is not accurate and it seems really difficult to fix.
Alisa V has a great books, but it’s super disappointing that her app - which we pay for - is so messy.
Don’t download. I wish I’d listened to the reviews before purchasing.
Acpc 85 - The tracker is really not easy to use
I LOVE the idea of being able to see the recommendations for the phase I’m in. I read the book by Alisa Vitti and was excited to be able to not go back to the book to find out what I should do. But the user experience of the calendar is just terrible (make your own judgement—there’s a question ‘how do I change my period start date’ in the FAQ section). If I forgot to input my data to the app, I can’t even go back to the previous days. I’m still in my period, and wanted to input data, the app is already telling me I’m in follicular phase and I can’t even change it. I haven’t even indicated my period ended! Super frustrating and annoying. Two stars only for the app idea. The execution of this app is just terrible
Aim for greatness - Do Not Update
I purchased this app years ago and it worked perfectly until just over a week ago when the app wouldn’t load. Was so disappointed that I had not just kept my period tracking in my journal the way I used to. I just used the app five minutes ago and all of my info was there and I was able to track the period I just had. I went to the App Store to look at reviews and it said there was an update. I updated without looking at the reviews and now I get a signup screen. There is a login, but I am not able to login either. My periods have been fairly irregular for the past year, so the information was actually really useful to my doctor, now it is gone. I am so disappointed with this experience. Thanks for being one more thing women can’t count on.

Bec.Pilates - Supportive/Educational
I downloaded this app from a recommendation from a podcast I regularly listen to. It’s helped me understand how my body changes throughout each cycle and within each phase of that cycle. I love the information provided about each phase which includes tips to best support your body, mind and energy levels during that time. The app is user friendly and the notes section has become somewhat like a daily journal entry. Really enjoying learning more about my body and how best to support/honour being female.
Abeja999 - Good, BUT
So far, I really like using the app to track my cycle. I’ve read the book, and so this was the only cycle tracking app I could find that tracked all stages of my cycle, not just the menstrual. It is occasionally glitchy, but quitting and restarting the app seems to help, and I remain hopeful that a future update will fix this bug.
My main point of contention however, is that in the book, Alisa specifically states that while our common societal acceptance is for the menstrual phase to be week 1, this is not in fact the case, and it is instead week 4. And yet, in the “My cycle phases” section of the app - while it does list the phases in their Alisa-ordained order - when you click each one for more information, the purple section under the heading says “phase one” for menstrual, “phase two” for follicular, and so on - completely contrary to what Alisa teaches us. (?!?!)
Why on Earth her own app undermines her writing with this oversight is beyond me - the logic is good, it is based in nature, and the app should reflect her point of view from the book. Otherwise- what is the incentive for choosing this app over another with more bells and whistles or a more modern aesthetic? The selling point is Alisa’s viewpoint, so logic would dictate that the app should follow that to the letter.
Melissaleehoneyb - Constantly having trouble opening this app
Although I really like the concept of this app. It has been very helpful with giving information and keeping track. That’s why it’s so upsetting to me that after using the app after a month it always stuffs up. It never lets me open it and I have actually sat there for half an hour once to see how long it took to open so that I could keep track and use it. After half an hour it still didn’t
Open. It just freezes. This also happened everytime they update thier app. Although I update the app and my phone it still freezes and doesn’t open. So I’ve had to delete it and re track everything again. I’ve had to delete and re download this app 3 times already. I don’t want to keep losing my data and tracking because it’s just getting annoying now. I may have to get a different app if this keeps happening. FIX THIS ISSUE!!!
Jovial123 - OMG could’ve spent 100x for all this good info
I just downloaded the app today and just... wow. I’m in awe of how informative and well designed it is. I love that I can look up what food is good for me in this stage of my cycle, then schedule that meal in my calendar with a click of a button. So many more cool functions I didn’t know I needed but I’m so glad they’re included. Best app ever.
Bkay101 - Great app but...
This app has an awesome concept and I love the level of information it provides so women can take charge of their health and well-being around their monthly cycles. I did however notice that in the recommendations for the menstrual phase under “love”, it only refers to your partner as being male, which was a little unsettling. This just assumes that if those using the app are in a relationship then it is with a guy. It would be great if they could make it a little more inclusive for those using the app. Otherwise I have found the app helpful, easy to use & informative.
Kassandra1998 - Not worth it, glitchy & inaccurate
Bought this thinking it would be great and accurately predict my cycle but it has stuck to a 35 day even though I have been 29 days for the past 5 months. You can’t see what day of your cycle you’re on so you have to manually count, can’t scroll up on the calendar without it going into the day your finger landed on... To be honest it felt like it was just there to sell the courses... The redeeming quality was how in depth you can log in your symptoms for the day. Since moved on to using Natural Cycles which so far has been more accurate after 1 week of use.
Chelsea J. - So many bugs unfortunately
I love the idea of this app but there are just so many issues and bugs. One being, I’ll track my symptoms and when we make love and yet when I reflect back on previous months where a little dot is below a date, (the dot let’s your know this is when you have tracked symptoms in the past on a certain day) the symptoms aren't there or tracked. Basically the best the app does is let you know where you are in your cycle, it’s has so many other great features but they never seem to work.
Jessie3474 - App doesn’t work
I used this app for about a month then it stopped working about two weeks ago. I can launch the app but not use any of the facilities. I thought about deleting it and downloading it again but having read other reviews it seems this is a common and recurring problem so don’t think I will bother. Seems like a pretty handy way for the company to make a few dollars then not deliver content. It’s a shame because I like this app more than others I’ve tried and think it has potential. But it just doesn’t seem to work consistently.
X.chica - Excellent way to learn about my inner self
So far, it looks so easy.
I don’t have any major issues around my cycle, but I wanted to learn more about it, get my mind and body in synchrony, and listen to all the little cues that my body is trying to scream out. I love that this app allows me to learn about my inner self in an easy and not time-consuming way.
Kafrcmrgerjlr - Good app but needs fixing for longevity.
The MyFLO app is a great concept for tracking your cycles. But the only extremely frustrating issue with this app is that it regularly freezes, disallowing you proper usage and access to your daily entries. The only way to fix the issue is to delete the entire app, and then go through the whole process of reinstalling the app, signing in/passwords and sitting through the introductions & tutorials all over again.
Lisamareeaustin - Freezing app
I’ve had the the same issue as Melissa Lee Honey above. Love the info and function of this app when it’s working - but I’ve also had to delete and retrack because after a month of tracking it just freezes and won’t open. It now says ‘checking for updates’ but never opens. I still get push notifications but can’t open the app. Please fix this issue as I don’t want to delete the app and use something else, but I can’t use it at all at the moment.
Allyrosee - Please fix bugs!!!
I really love this app, and find everything it has to offer so insightful. However I find it crashes every few months and I’m having to delete and re-enter my data, meaning I lose all of my tracking! So frustrating :(
Lkaoff - Good Idea, but...
I bought this app specifically because I could sync my partner. This feature has never worked, and the makers are aware and haven’t fixed it.
I don’t like that you can’t change your cycle length after registration.
My cycle length has been stuck on 14 days and it’s a bit annoying.
I love the basic information it provides, but dislike the fact that she is always trying to up sell. Sort of feels like a taking advantage of vulnerable women gimmicky type thing.
Karri97 - Have to delete and download again every month
I love this app but every month after I’ve entered a period I am unable to add new symptoms to any day and have to delete the app and download again. This has happened too many times that I don’t bother entering symptoms anymore (which completely defeats the purpose of the app). I switched to this one from clue because of the cycle syncing extras but if this doesn’t fix it looks like I’ll have to change back.
Pamn1 - I love the app BUT...
This is a great app but it freezes! Yesterday it said “checking for updates” the wheel started turning- and turning -24 hours later! I opened the app and yes I was still seeing the same pink page with “checking for updates”. So frustrating when you want to log your daily info before you forget how the day went for your hormones. Please do a fix for it.
Tash Wonder - Doesn’t learn your cycle length changes
I asked to have my cycle length changed through the help section and they said I can do it through edit my cycle in the app in FAQ which was pretty strange to begin with, so I messaged them because I certainly didn’t want to lose my data. So they knew I only want to change my cycle length moving forward to make ovulation and next period more reliable. They did alter it and lost all my previous 2+ years data. Said sorry about the miscommunication...
The app didn’t update with over 6 cycles at much shorter length.
Other frustrating thing is when you lodge symptoms, the recommendations are the same no matter what part of your cycle you’re in. So all very automated and doesn’t give much insight to your specific part of cycle or symptoms at that time and is mostly a sales pitch for all their courses.
Not happy about data loss...
1linds1 - Great app but deleted all of my info
I love this app and all of the information and guidance it has to offer, however I went onto the app and noticed all of my information was gone and I had lost all of the months worth of tracking I had been doing. I am Unsure why this happened but I am alittle sad I have lost everything. Besides this, this is a great app and I would highly recommend!
Rosienerney - Essential App for all women
By far the best period tracking app I’ve ever used. An essential for all women who want to truly know how their bodies work. I recommend this app to all my health coaching clients. I hope one say all women will use this app and understand their bodies the way Alissa teaches.
Alifeinflow - Shame it’s gotten glitchy
Sadly, after several years of using this app I am leaving. It’s become glitchy and the data has become buggy. Doing strange things, changed dates of what I recorded and no longer reliable. Disappointed as I had a few years of data here but can’t rely on accuracy from past month. Just tried to record a new cycle starting today and it won’t show on my calendar.
Love-yoga23 - Not very reliable
The app keeps crashing for me almost every couple of months - many of the functions don’t work intermittently, which makes the calendar get all messed up. It’s way too unreliable for cycle tracking. The recommendations page also never works for me so I don’t feel I get much from it. If you’re using cycle tracking as a contraceptive method, definitely invest in something more reliable
Mn4455 - Clean and easy to use, please add BBT tracking!
Still playing around with this app, but it Looks like a really interesting tracking app, the prompts are great. So far have found it clean and simple to track, but am disappointed I can’t track BBT! Would be great if this was added as a feature - unless there is the ability to do this and I haven’t found it yet?
Yosallyd - Not my favourite
I really enjoyed the phases breakdown and extra tips regarding food and exercise. I found that it didn’t actually predict my period very well as it only seemed to take it account the last period length when predicting. Perhaps this was me miss using the app, but i guess that also means it’s not very user friendly. You also have to be online to access it, which wasn’t always convenient.
Jadea1111 - Good app but constantly freezes, crashes and won’t open
I really like this app and I enjoy using it a lot, but it’s so buggy and it seems to be getting progressively worse. I’ve had to delete and re-download a few times because of it, and I’ve had to re-enter data because it only seems to remember half when I log back in. My app won’t even open at the moment. :(
Jessa .x. - I love everything except the glitches!
Definitely the superior cycle monitoring app in terms of relevance and the user friendly aspect but it often glitches and doesn’t allow me to add daily notes/symptoms. I find myself having to reinstall far too often.
LOVE but Help - App not working
My app hasn’t been working for two weeks, data won’t load it just keeps circulating as if it’s refreshing.
I’ve tried updating, re-downloading etc.
Unsure where or how to fix.
Please help, I love this app.
ALISHA.KELLY - Women need this app!
It is so amazing to see that Alisa has created an app which actually helps women to properly understand their cycle! This is so important for every woman to know and I love that she has outlined the 4 phases of your cycle so clearly! She’s a Wonder Woman.
Channgel - App doesn’t open
I’ve had this app for almost a week now - the last 3 days I’ve tried to open the app and it just won’t open! It stays on the loading screen which says “checking for updates”. I’ve only just now read past reviews and it seems as if this is a regular occurrence. Very disappointing - going to find another solution I think.
Thisiswaytoohard - Had it 7 days and it has FROZEN
I’ve only had this app 7 days, and now it has stopped functioning and I can’t make any entries.
There is no-one to contact, to troubleshoot, or rectify the issue.
I don’t want to delete the app and re-install it, as I’ve entered a large amount of information, and don’t want to risk losing it all (I would never be able to remember it all).
This is the first app I have ever paid for, and the only app I have ever used, that has stopped functioning.
When I set it all up, I was thrilled with what it seemed to be offering, and what it seemed to be capable of - now I’m annoyed, and hoping that someone has an interest in rectifying the situation.
It would a real shame if this app doesn’t work, and a waste of my valuable time and effort and details.
APMC 2019 - Great concept, poor execution
I really love the concept and if the app actually worked, I would be over the moon. Unfortunately it doesn’t and it defeats the purpose of having a period tracker if I had to reset my app every month as the period phases are never right and I have been told there is no solution at this point (ie resetting app in order for the phases to correct themselves & simultaneously wipe out all data and you’re back at square one)
Cycle syncer - Disappointed with features
While the overall concept off the app is good and informative it lacks features and is very static. Most other cycle tracking apps enable you to view stats and you can track more detailed symptoms like different moods, if you’re feeling sick etc.
Seems more like a promotion for Alissa Vittis lifestyle products rather than a useful app.
UserCBT - Not enough updates or new information
Honestly, looking at the same explanation and advice every time is really turning me off this app. Surely as time goes by the developers could have added new content or at least some different suggestions in. Getting stale... what made this app stand out from the rest in the beginning has stopped.
The Mrs T. - Good but not Great
Great app to learn about the different cycle phases and what they mean, especially if you’re keen to ‘cycle sync’ however the app has a tendency to just ‘stop working’ every so often and the only fix is to delete it and re-install.
S.d.d17 - "Checking for updates" since 27 April 2022
Not sure what's going on but the app has been stuck checking for updates and am unable to get the application to work again. I'm afraid I'll have to delete the application and lose all my data.
App developers - can you please rectify this issue as I would not like to delete the app but it's looking as though that's what I'll have to do.
Smithy7766 - Great concept, but disappointing main function
A great concept for an app-and fantastic food/lifestyle advice, but huge error that doesn’t ever get fixed with correcting ‘next expected period’. Have reported this several times & never fixed. Its ALWAYS one week out-has been for over 2 years of using it. Seems simple for an app to be corrected if thats exactly what its about..
Morimoto zoe - Doesn’t open
I loved this app and had a quick skim through, after just ONE day it no longer loads or opens, which is a real shame because the information inside it was really gold. Is there anyway the developers can fix this?
It keeps telling me i have no internet connection and it can’t open when i’m clearly on 5G and have wifi too…
KO1.52 - App freezes and loses data - stops working
I really loved this app, it was so useful. However it keeps crashing and freezing so then I have to delete it to refresh. Even after deleting it and redownloading loading it, the app won’t open. So disappointing because now I have to find a new tool.
CT4170 - I have been waiting for this
I have needed something like this in my life for a long time. This is easy, simple, informative and helpful
BLB0584 - Great idea - but it just stopped working...
I love the idea behind this app and was really excited to use it. However, about 10 days in to recording, it just stopped working. I click the “+” to add symptoms and just nothing happens. I’ve updated the software on my iPhone and the app scans for updates when it opens and doesn’t say there are any. It’s very disappointing.
Gsgshdhdndndkx - Great at the start...
Initially loved this app! But for over three months it hasn’t let me add any new data, period dates, nothing. It continues to freeze or crash I’ve tried deleting and re-loading the app but still same problems:( please fix these issues! Such a shame it was so great with all the info and tips when it was working.
Dm R O - Great concept but poor functionality
If this app consistently worked properly it would be amazing. I was able to add symptoms each day for about 1 month but now when I tap on the date nothing happens. I also can’t access past dates to compare. Disappointed 👎🏽
Mya0403 - So glitchy!
Good concept but terrible delivery. Sometimes I’m unable to track anything because nothing happens when I click on dates. More often than not, the app just won’t load at all. I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall many times over
TallyLou - Very useful
Fantastic app & used to be very useful! However, there is no setting for when you’re pregnant, postpartum, etc. This has affected the app’s ability to predict my cycle now that I’ve returned to normal.
Bellc1997 - Stopped working
I downloaded the app because I love the concept behind it. I ignored the other reviews thinking surely it must be fixed as so many reviews have mentioned the same thing.
It worked great for a month & now I can’t add and track any symptoms, the ‘+’ symbol has stopped working completely.
Estie00 - Could be better
Like many others here, I do love the concept and it could be really good if a few major issues were fixed. I can no longer add symptoms which is very important for me to keep track of with certain health issues.
Disappointing for a paid app.
Shanniidc - Stopped working
Was working great when I first downloaded it. Then it stopped and won’t allow me to change or input information.
Patiently waiting for updates to fix all this is getting annoying now.
Livmzg - Crashes a bit
If/when you upgrade so it doesn’t freeze/crash, it will be a better app
Adriana Zoe - Glitching for ages now
When I’m tapping on the date nothing happens anymore. I can click on tomorrows date and it tells me what phase my cycle is in but it no longer allows me to enter today’s symptoms. Very disappointing and I hope it can be fixed soon because I really enjoyed using this app. Updating my phone has not helped.
Meg2535 - Loved the podcast, app isn’t functional.
I’m really keen to get to know my body’s cycle but this app isn’t easy to edit your details, particularly your menstrual cycle and it sent me a notification yesterday I was menstrual and today follicular… confused.
Snbw_ - Won’t open
Can’t even open the app, never used it, money down the drain. Says it can’t connect to the internet but everything else can so it’s not my issues. Deleted, lesson learned, read reviews first and don’t take star rating at face value.
...Ell... - Was a Great App to start with
I Loved this App however after using it for 2 months it has become glitchy. I cannot log anything into my days to say what symptoms I had or anything. I really hope the app
Improves as I was enjoying learning so much about myself.

Nickie_290 - Too many bugs!
This app glitches constantly. You’ll basically pay $3.00 for an app that will work well for one week and then freeze every time you open it, glitch out during use, or lock you out of your account altogether. It’s terrible.
Graaca - Love it BUT...
It was great before IOS14 update ... can’t input information in it now, and if I dis-install it I will lose all my data !! Please fix this ! Thx
Naturedani - Not working
I haven’t been able to use it since the updated version. It asks me for a new password but when I try it there’s an error message. I really need this fixed as I use this app a lot and I need all the info I put it there.
D.m.z - Doesn’t work after just a few weeks!
This app desperately needs an update and I wish the creator would acknowledge it, given that she actively promotes using it as part of her plan and in her books. This app is unusable. You can track symptoms for just a couple weeks, although its not very user-friendly and quite ‘clunky’... and then it just won’t let you track anymore. It’s also sending alerts for the wrong phases. And the partner email option hasn’t worked once. It also has question after question in the faq about what to do when the user makes a mistake... if the app isn’t user-friendly enough that you need an overly detailed faq about how to avoid it, don’t you think it’s time for an update? I’ll be switching back to the Clue app.
EmilyHenry1709 - Great but...
The app and Flo Living methodology have changed the game for women who want to embrace their period and live synchronously in tune with their bodies. BUT about once a month I have to delete and reinstall the app as it won’t let me add daily logs; pretty silly for a paid app.
Salemstribute - Money grab
Her book isn’t worth the money either, more useful information through that tho. At least if you get the book on a e-book website you don’t really pay for it. Just saw someone else’s review that encourages another app called Floka, hopefully it will actually run and it’s free.
Lauradoesyoga - Loved but
Since I updated my iOS the app won’t open properly which sucks because I loved how good it was at tracking my cycle. FIX THIS BUG PLEASE🙏🏻
Twentysomethingyogi - Meh, a let-down
$ to download and $ for content. I used to use it, but then I found out about flöka for personalized recommendations. Much happier now.
Anrotsam - Don’t recommend this app
I’ve used this app for only a month, then, after I made an update, all my data got erased and replaced by info i did not put and that I cannot even remove or replace with my actual data.
I’ve been in contact with Support for a while and they have never been able to fix it. They gave me a code so I can subscribe to the Flo28 Cycle syncing membership but I’m not even able to use it and I have no idea of hie to make this work since no explanation came along. Plus, when I try to get to my account through their website, it gets really confusing since each time I want to get to one of their portal (monthly flights or flights 28) they ask me for my username and password, which seem different depending on which portal I want to connect. Honestly, why did you guys made things THAT complex??
Knowing that I gave my money and support to this app for nothing and that i can not even count on any support to solve my problems encountered is really frustrating. That is why I do not recommend this app at all !
Zookeeper! - Took my money!
Had to pay for the app and it says “internal server error” whenever I try to set it up! Garbage!
Isabella1233493 - Glitches
Had app for over a year, then all of a sudden I couldn’t log in and now I can’t log anything, and lost track of my cycle and data. Changing apps immediately 😒
09845ak - DONT PAY FOR THIS APP!
I rarely pay for apps but heard about this one on a podcast. I was excited to use it, given the details it would offer.
It worked for about 6weeks and then crashed and locked me out and won't allow me to sign back in. The app is completely useless. It sucks because I paid $3 for nothing, and I stopped using my other tracker when starting this one so now I have to start tracking all over again.
VERY unimpressed. Don't waste your money!
Notbadmonadeen - Doesn’t work anymore
It used to be amazing but now just says “internal server error” anytime you try to login. Sad because I used to love this app.
Sbeaton4 - Terrible update
I’ve been using this app religiously since 2020 and this last update is so confusing and has so much junk I really don’t use it anymore. So sad bc it is was the best on the market before - and I’ve tried them all.
Shawna The Destroyer - Womp womp
Looks like I’m not the only one with “updated” app issues. Super bummer.
I’ve been using iP Lite to track for almost 10 years and have never once had an issue. I thought the features of FLO might be fun but in the 4 years I’ve had it, I’ve actually never paid attention to the cycle advice - partially because it was not very interesting and largely because it wasn’t clear where it was coming from. As if all these fancy features disable and distract from simply tracking your cycles?
Music_girl10 - Amazing until…
I’ve used this app for years and learned so much about my body.
This past month everything stopped. I get error messages anytime I go into the app. I’ve tried to reinstall without success.
I’ll keep checking back in hope that the bugs get fixed. It was my favourite periods/symptoms/education app hands down (when it worked).
Arian_Vancouverite - Not liking the May 2022 App Update
SHORT VERSION: New App functionality is 80% for upsell purposes & 20% what u paid for and it’s not even working properly. I will update my review once this has been remedied.
LONG VERSION: Not as user friendly as original version. Most importantly I can’t edit my period START and END date post app update without them manually changing it after doing a 2nd follow up email. Despite this workaround, I’m still not able to get “Insights” despite me meeting the min. 3-mo worth of data on the app. It seems their manual fix didn’t really sync so my Period Cycle and Duration are all inaccurate.
Customer service is slow and after I sent them detailed snapshots of issue, the reply seems like they didn’t really read it and just directed me to FAQ as if I didn’t try to troubleshoot that before doing the much harder thing to do which is email them.
I don’t like having to give this review bec I feel they have so much potential. :(
Elfaniel - Mandatory password
I loved this app until it asked me to add a password to protect my information and then led me to a blank screen. Even when I closed the app the screen stayed blank. I wish I had been given a choice weather to add a password or not.
And the new display of the calendar is so confusing and difficult to read. It was nice and clear before. Now the colors make it hard to seethe dates. And you have to really look to see the month.
Melaniefoodlove - New update kicked me out
I have used this app for a couple years and it has been amazing. But recently I went to log in and noticed I had been logged off. It is prompting me to change my password but when I do it says it has an internal error. Please fix!
Mindsetlifestylematters - Update
The new update is hard to read. I liked it better the old layout. And the little bubble with the date for quick reference for your next period is gone
Tanou_444 - Can’t log in anymore! Lost all previous info
I truly loved the app but it is very glitchy. I lost all my previous information when I updated it. Now, I can’t access the app anymore. It is asking to change our password and I receive an internal error message. A bit disappointed since I’ve paid for it in the past.
_Lib_13 - Update won’t let me log back in!
I used to be a regular user of this app but since the recent update it’s asked me to create a new password - fine - but everytime I try and click “submit” I get an “internal server error” and can’t move forward. Really bummed I won’t be able to use this app anymore especially when I relied on it to know where I was at in a given cycle.
Mlmvrf0311 - Update erased years of data
The recent update erased years of data that I had accumulated with this app. Incredibly frustrating and now it won’t let me edit when my latest period began.
Originally you didn’t need an account for this app but now apparently you do and it reset everything. Very disappointed and upset from this. I would use it daily to track my cycle and before the update I recommended it to everyone.
Tinkasucevic - Good in theory
I love the idea behind this app as it truly does help women with the whole idea of cycle syncing. I would just say that the app is not very user friendly. It’s hard to make changes in the app when it comes to your cycle. I seem to always be struggling with technical issues. Otherwise it’s a great app but it would be super helpful if it was designed a bit better in terms of usability!
NikkiMunro - Not working since update
I use this app a lot but since the update I can’t even login. It tells me to reset my password which I do and then just says internal error. I cannot get past this page and I can’t access any of my past months data.
Cheeee4678 - Not working
I’ve been using this app for over a year. Then all of a sudden it says it’s been updated and asks me to change my password to get back into my account but every time I do it says “internal network error”. Haven’t been able to get back into my account for a while now. Disappointing when you are tracking
Kristieholden - Latest update sucks
I really liked the app at first because it made it simple to know what stage in my cycle I’m in and what to eat, how to exercise, how to approach work, etc. But the latest update SUCKS. It’s not user friendly at all. It’s overwhelming, not clear where I am in my cycle, when I go to cycle sync I can’t tell where I’m in my cycle, and adding my period feels like extra work and I can’t edit when my period actually ended so I don’t find this app useful at all and I’m not going to use it anymore. Glad it was only a one time payment or I’d have cancelled my subscription immediately after seeing what the app looks like and the UX now. Not user friendly at all!
DarDar2309 - The new app is terrible
I have always used this app and loved but the new design of the app is terrible. I like some of the new features but whoever designed it must not use it because it’s so difficult to navigate through.
Julicalderon - The worst app
I had such high expectations after reading the book, and sadly the app has never worked since I paid for it. My s/o never receives the emails, I can’t add details about my daily food, exercise or symptoms and now it doesn’t even load. I have reinstalled the app many many times and nothing happens. Contacted the support service and they only said “there is a bug and you need to reinstall it”…total waste of money and time trying to set it up. So sad. The methodology is extremely good from the book, but the app is garbage.
Blah blah is already taken - Amazing app that never works
The cycle syncing, the info, the recommendations… everything about the actual app is perfect. But it frequently requires reinstalling or the network just doesn’t work. I recently was unable to give my doctor accurate info, which is why I use these apps in the first place.
Edit: updated and committed a “server error” when forcing me to enter a new password so I’ve lost all my data and am locked out.
Vanessay692 - Worked for a while.
It was working wonderfully, but now for some reason you can’t add data to it.or open it
Ncl 76 - Was good but something happened with update
Another one who’s App won’t load after having it work fine for the last year.
NelleWalker - Not profound and super limited
I paid for this app after listening to a podcast interviewing the founder- she made it seem like the app would provide extra info on handling each week. I thought I’d be able to access recipes for each week as that was insinuated on the podcast. Instead, you get a monthly tracker that is super similar to period trackers, you get a vague overview of how the week will affect your brain, energy, love life and diet but it never changes. So essentially I’m paying $3 for stagnant information that is never changed up.
Wsubcg - No longer works at all :(
I’ve used this app for years and loved it. All of a sudden it wouldn’t open this last week. I even tried deleting the app (along with ALL my longstanding data) and reinstalling. Still won’t work. It keeps saying it can’t connect to the internet even though everything else on my phone functions perfectly.
Jess.elizabeth - Disappointed
I lost over a years worth of data, I have free apps that are more reliable
FireBug - Doesn't open
The app doesn't get past the loading screen. Noticed afterwards that the app hasn't been updated in nearly 2 years. Such a waste
Fannyjae - Love when it works
randomly stopped working, uninstalled to reinstall and now it says it needs internet when I’m already connected and just freezes. Pretty disappointing for a paid app
Gingershvite - Was great
Was great, but now I can’t even open the app. Keeps saying check internet connection, but my connection is fine.
J S P. - Frustrating
The app has some great information in it but is so faulty it’s hardly worth it. It’s very glitchy and has crashed on me multiple times. For the last several days it won’t even open. Please invest in a better app… but at this stage I’m shifting back to Flo which works way better!
Lovinit_user2011 - Updates required to use , no updates exist
This app has been checking for updates for 2 week , can you give us the updates so I can continue to use the app ?
Invest more time into maintenance maybe ?
An defy ants - Terrible
I spent money on this app for it to work for a week and then crash. I uninstalled it and reinstalled and it still doesn’t work!!
Waste of money. Very unhappy.
Y2Jane81 - Worked well for about a minute
It worked well the first time I opened it and then it all went downhill from there. I can’t add any information and I sent an email to the developers like two years ago and I still haven’t heard back from them. A paying app should work A1 which is really not the case. Now I can’t even open it it just search for updates.
Jay-182182 - Crappy app
I’ve been using the app for a while. Too often it won’t let me input info or it glitches out. I’ve been completely unable to get into the app for the last 3 days. It just won’t open. There are much better apps that you don’t need to pay for.
MissD129 - Unable to open app
I just purchased this app and it is locked on the purple, opening page...
I have no idea how to request a refund at this point and am quite disappointed, as this app was just recommended on a friend’s business (Facebook) page and I was really looking forward to using it.
Gjkg14633 - Please fix!!!
App completely stopped working on Friday and I see others have the same problem. I’ve removed it, reloaded it, restarted my phone. Nothing works. Crazy for a paid app. Please fix quickly.
ChereneFrancis - Stopped working
I was enjoying it and it looks like they have neglected the maintenance because it doesn’t work. I lost all me data and now have to start over elsewhere. Too bad because I did enjoy using it.
Weekndsl - Just bought this app and it doesn’t work!
I spent $2 on this app and it doesn’t work! Wow… please fix this!
Nekonezume - Will change this back when this works again
App has been broken for a week. Completely unable to open it. It’s a great app and I’ve used it for years.
It would be nice if there was a “pregnancy mode”. I took a break from the app for a year while I was pregnant and waiting for periods to return. The app then messed with my automatic average cycle and says that I cycle now every 38 days. It would be nice if you could turn off the auto and on again at will.
Lbechkos17 - Doesn’t work anymore
Tried restarting my phone and everything, app just doesn’t work anymore I’ve been trying for days. So disappointing as I base my cycle around it and have no idea where I left off.
Ld2222222 - Doesn’t even work??
I wish I never bought this app. It was so good at first while I was looking around at all of the info. But now for 2 weeks every time I open it, the app is stuck on the intro screen saying “checking for updates please wait…”. My screen will be open for 10 minutes on that page never letting me into the app. I really want to love this app but it simply does not work. I paid for this app and it doesn’t open - how is that possible???
