Great app all around
by Kg9274729273 on 2020/10/23 20:11
I use this for pregnancy prevention, tracking of my period, and general health & wellness. Love that this lets me track many different things besides just those pertaining to my cycle! I’ve also learned a lot from the education section of this app since they have very interesting articles. Generally an all around great app. (Would be cool if they put a water consumption tracker in here.) ;)
Excellent
by MelandDayne on 2020/10/23 15:37
Easy to use and informative
Too expensive
by Susihkz08910513 on 2020/10/23 15:09
I don’t like how you have to pay to get premium. It wasn’t like that when I first downloaded it a few years ago, and the cost is expensive.
So helpful
by Autumnbug11 on 2020/10/23 07:39
I've always needed help remembering dates and such. This app not only does that, but does it in a fun way and provides information and tips.
Amazing

Lots of details!
by UNCacapellalovin on 2020/10/22 07:18
You can log just about anything and everything, from your period to your moods to the position you were in when you tried to conceive...I don’t use every bit of it’s functionality but it’s helped me know when I’m ovulating after just 1-2 months of logging! The only detail that is missing in this very detailed app are more representative graphics. Not everyone is fair skinned and I think it would be a good move for Glow to add the option for different colored graphics based on your ethnicity.

It’s a great app, but not for me.
by ZheAwesomePenguin on 2020/10/21 14:28
I love the design and how colorful and bright everything is. But I wish there was a way to hide all the things relating to pregnancy. I know I’m the minority on this, but even the suggestion of it to me makes me sick and uncomfortable. I hate seeing kids, I hate seeing the prenatals, I don’t want to know my chance of pregnancy(ew), I just want to track my cycle and that is it. For that reason, I’m going back to the free version of Flo. It’s not as colorful, but I don’t have to have fertility and pregnancy talk shoved at me every five seconds. I can mark what I need to and that is it. If Glow ever came out with an option to opt out of everything regarding pregnancy, I’d make the switch. But right now, it’s not worth it. I can’t have myself becoming physically ill from an app every time I open it. It may sound silly, but it genuinely disgusts me. I’d rather watch the internet Gauntlet again.

This is a great app with lots of options to track your cycle but the site is way to busy. I have to search for where to log my entries for each day instead of that being the landing page when I click on the app.

I am a women who's period is always irregular. My periods are between 28,30,35, or even 45 days apart. It is awful because I'm constantly in pain. It feels like I'm ovualting all the time. Now that I have a very steamy sex life, feeling the pressure of a missing period is very stressful. I read an article on the app and it mentioned getting on the pill to help regulate my periods. I did but because I am 38 and already have 3 children of my own. I have decided to get a Tubal ligation to permanently resolve my worries. This app has helped me guide my way through my menstrual cycle. I highly recommend this app to all my girlfriends. It's so hard to remember our monthly periods.

Use this app to track my period and when my husband and I were trying to get pregnant it was so nice to have a beautifully organized calendar of my most fertile days. It’s so nice to be able to look back and see exactly when my last period was and all of my logged symptoms. In my book, this app is a Must-have.

This app saved me. I struggled to get pregnant for years and the amount of emotional support you can find here is incredible. It’s more than just an app to monitor your cycle. It’s a community. Being able to sync your app to your partners phone is great, though I never used it for my cycles. However, I plan to use it to allow him to track our growing baby on Glow Nurture; an opportunity I wouldn’t have if not for the accuracy and tips I received from Glow to help me get pregnant. Thank you, Glow!

by Mrsmoothcool on 2020/10/16 22:19
I like this app because it combines so many things and gives a lot of information but I think it needs work. I wish It gave me more information on my temp and my CM and what that meant. I don’t like all the notifications for 5 different topics, and I could do without the community portion, honestly I don’t care about random strangers posts. I really wish I could sync my tempdrop automatically to this app instead of having to manually add it in. GLOW PLEASE TEAM UP WITH TEMPDROP, it would help so many people.
Great App!

by Jpp6677425996 on 2020/10/16 15:40
spammy app filled with nonsense they’re always trying to send you notifications about to look at. feels like tracking your period with a slot machine. i don’t care about the gossip posts on your forums. and the “insights” are a joke. after i log i had sex, it sends me a notification that i have an insight... “you just had sex!” yeah, duh, i just told you that. do yourself a favor and use flo instead. calmly designed without all the junk. and very informative.

If you have a miscarriage this app makes it incredibly difficult to edit it and constantly sends reminder of your “would have been” pregnancy.

by Babydoll1693 on 2020/10/14 15:10
Love this app! Especially the community aspect of it but I’m knocking off one star because I am using this and another app because Glow sets a solid date of when your period should come but doesn’t give you a range of dates that it could come on. I also like the notes section and the option to add medication. If Glow could add the range of dates your period should come w/o immediately saying “you’re period is late” then it would be perfect.
I love it

I’ve had period tracker apps in the past but I’ve never had an app that has so many features and fits so many different lifestyles whether you’re just tracking your period, trying for a pregnancy or you are already pregnant. I love the app so much I paid for the premium membership for a lifetime. I’ve use glow for quite a few years now and I recommended to everybody. Most Tracking apps out there aren’t as developed as this one and don’t have such an amazing community as this one!

by hanner1091 on 2020/04/22 19:12
Have you ever wished you could track all of your monthly physical and mental health symptoms to know for sure, when they happened and why? This app allows you to track all of that and much more. After 3 months of tracking your monthly cycle symptoms you can easily compare and understand exactly what happens and exactly when. It’s really an amazing app and well made too. So much customization and personalization. Every woman needs this app!! I love when I’m at a docs appointment and they ask all those questions like “when was the last time you had sex?” Or “what day was the last day of your most recent period?”. It’s a total game changer. Also it’s helps to know exactly what to tell your doctor. When you can see your period is changing or acne is worse than it was however many months ago you’ve since tracked it, you’ll never have to wonder if it was “all in your head” or “maybe your not remembering it right”. This app with the subscription is worth it for any woman out there that wonders about their ever changing monthly symptoms.
Great
by DominicanPrincesa on 2020/08/19 15:37
This app is pretty good. Not only can you track your periods, track ovulation, track your pregnancy, and keep track of your babies growth and development, but you also have a community of people where you can find a group for anything. There are groups for baby names, breastfeeding, labor, trying to conceive, relationships, etc. This app would be perfect, if I weren’t for some of the women on there. They really aren't the nicest people and they try so hard to enforce the rules that they sound very rude towards any new person that makes a simple mistake. It isn’t even their job to attack people like they do. Just report it to the admin or politely let the person know and move on. You don’t need 5 women repeating the same thing on one post. Another thing I don’t like is when you make an anonymous posts, why cant you comment on your post and still remain anonymous?? That just doesn’t make sense to me. All in all, it’s a good app. I’m on it constantly. EDIT: THIS IS A HUGE PROBLEM. There are underage teenage girls on here trying to get pregnant. People are encouraging them and giving them advice. The admins are aware and so far have done nothing about it. They have not deleted the groups of underage teens planning pregnancy. That’s ridiculous.
Pretty good up until lately
by anonymom2b on 2017/12/08 12:04
I have been using the app for about 7 months. We have been trying to have a baby and I can never keep up when I last had my period unless I look at my BC pack. Obviously, now that I’m off of them I needed something to help track it as well as ovulation. It’s been pretty good with some exceptions but I think that is mainly because of some issues I’m having and not because of the app. I have found some great support and advice among the members. It’s also just nice to have a place to go and join specific groups that are similar to your situation or interests. That has been a very positive experience. Women lifting people up. The last few days the app hasn’t been able to open. I’m not sure if it has something to do with the latest update but I have never had this issue until this week. I hope it gets fixed ASAP because I have really come to rely on this app for logging all of my information.
Slow, Bloated, and Busy
by obxmusicfan on 2020/08/27 03:27
REVIEW UPDATED AUG. 2020 - I literally only keep this app because of how long I’ve been using it and how much data I’ve logged. It has gotten SO BAD! First I thought it was my older phone and chalked it up the that, but then I got a new phone and it’s the same. It takes forever to load anything, it’s multiple clicks to do input data, and the app interface is busy busy! The pop ups are too much, the little widgets are too much. There also used to be a lot more free tips and graphs, and for how much advertisement happens on this app it should still have those things But mostly this app is SLOW! Glow used to be awesome, but now it’s just outdated. If you’re just getting started with tracking find a simpler app (not Eve because Glow owns them I’m fairly certain) that’s simpler and works smoothly, like Clue. That app is actually made by women for women, unlike Glow which I read was started by a bunch of men! That fact really started to show in the last couple years. Also don’t be fooled by the pretty pictures you see here on the App Store. This app looks NOTHING like that at all! I contacted support and they told me the update was “rolling out slowly,” but that was almost a dozen updates ago...
Very good, but could be better
by Sbpitchin on 2019/11/12 17:25
UPDATE: The community feature is nice but there are some very rude and nasty ladies on the forums. Post with caution. I really do love Glow, but there are a few things I wish the app had. First of all, I wish that if you are using the app to conceive a baby that after your “ovulation date” it showed “days post ovulation” instead of “days until next period”. I don’t know why but seeing “days until next period” makes me sad and most women are symptom checking after ovulation and I feel like that information would be more helpful. If you aren’t trying to conceive then by all means leave it as is. Also, when putting in symptoms, cervix position, BBT, CM consistency, etc, I wish there were more every day insights into how that matches up to where you’re at in your cycle other than just comparing to other glow users. I never know if what I’m logging is normal for where I’m at in my cycle and I never seem to match with the other users which makes me concerned. I do feel like the newest update is very helpful though and have learned a lot from glow.
It was great...before the update
by acx04 on 2019/10/04 03:01
I had this app for over a year and it was great. It gave me some scientific research facts, easy to use, excellent at keep notes and easily tracked my period. Until recently, the new update made it harder to log and re-log, it’s also harder for me to edit my notes when I need to add something. The cycle analysis is always in the way and it’s only promoting glow premium; I don’t mind the advertisement until it gets in the way of everything I need to do on the app. The security lock on the app is very good and convenient. The stories that every other glow user makes it feel like social media and it makes me want to stay on the app explore and communicate with all the other women on the app which makes me feel very warm and fuzzy every time I see women supporting each other on the app. I’ll wait for the next update but if it’s really not giving me easy and quick access then sadly I have to find a more simple and easy to period app to use. Hopefully the glow staff and creator can do something about the new updates. Thank you very much for taking my opinion into account.
Tracking Great, Community Not
by JennyL4859693 on 2019/01/23 18:39
I loved being able to track my dates, my symptoms and have all of my information in one spot to look back on. However I became turned off from the app when I began looking through the community section. A lot of people seemed extremely rude. It seems like those who can’t get pregnant want to make those who are feel bad and those who can get pregnant easily want to brag about it and make those whole can’t feel bad. There’s a forum to see if pregnancy tests are positive and some people said no even though it was an obvious yes just to be rude while others didn’t have the positive line and the comments were so harsh. I felt like this was supposed to be a place for support, a place to get advice and a partnership of women who want people to understand what they’re going through. My jaw would drop reading comments and my heart would hurt seeing responses. If you use the app, use the calendar and track your symptoms but avoid the community. There are some really nice and great people but there are more people who aren’t who ruin this app.
Most Accurate Period Tracking App
by AmandaUchiha on 2018/07/04 13:41
I don’t know how well it works for fertility as I’m not trying to get pregnant, but this app predicts my periods better than any other app I have used! That alone earns this app 5 stars! It’s usually perfect or only a day off. The community can be fun but I agree that some of the ladies on the app can be very rude, but that goes for any social based app so I won’t dock a star for it. Great app overall, just avoid the community if hash words get to you. EDIT: I have been seeing bullying and rude comments in excess lately. I would suggest that there be harsher penalties for bullies and rude women than just having their comments removed. There are grown women on this app who will literally stalk your profile and comment rude things on your other posts as well, just because you said something that they don’t agree with. I’m still leaving it at 5 stars, but as someone who is a strong advocate against bullying, this is very concerning to me.
Second time user!
by lil mater on 2018/08/03 07:02
I used this app for nine months before I got pregnant with my perfect little boy that’s one this month! This app was a ton of help and I have told many people like me about it! We are trying again so I am using the app once again and it’s just not the same at all! It is a lot more difficult to maneuver around and a year ago (without paying for prime) it was a lot more helpful. It really seems like this app is now based on trying to advertise and get woman to get fertility help when they really don’t need it! That’s all that’s been popping up since I’ve used it now for the last three months. Vitamins, bbt, keep track of your fertile window (which you girls only have 12 hours really so make sure it’s every day if not more:) GNC has a his and hers vitamin pack...look at the label and buy each vitamin separate because it is “blend” if not! Vitamins will take around 4-5 montages to start helping so don’t give up! Best of luck
I absolutely love this app!
by Danita Marie on 2020/07/29 18:18
It’s addicting!! I am constantly reading the community posts and getting sucked into the juicy stories! Besides juicy stories, the community can be quite a system of support and knowledge. They answer questions and offer kindness when and if you post about something that is bothering you. I also love how Eve/Glow grows with you!! It starts as a period tracking app (Eve), then it’s a trying to conceive app/ovulation tracker (Glow), then there’s a pregnancy version (glow nurture), and a version for when your baby is born (Glow baby). It seriously is the best. I love the daily calendar where I can log important things and I love all the articles. They are so helpful and informative. I remember reading the articles daily when I was pregnant. Every article described how my baby was growing each day and what new sensations the baby was experiencing with growth. It was amazing. I highly recommend this app!
Issue with adding my partner (husband)
by Brooke Lee Lui on 2018/09/10 01:54
The directions indicate to add my husbands name and email, then says “success, an email and notification will be sent” I’ve done this 4 times and although he’s checked his email, junk mail, spam box, etc he’s not received any of them. However it also says in the directions for him to sign in using his email to his own flow account. These are a bit contradicting directions, so is something wrong in the app, or does he need to download and sign in and we won’t receive the email and instructions?? Please help as he’d like to be able to see my account as offered. Otherwise, A+ with the app, I love everything about it and all the information. I would LOVE a pdf or something with a list of what all the acronyms mean, I have some of them down but I have to go to google and try and find each one if I cannot figure it out :) ... I’ll change my review to 5 stars and update once my hubby can link up and see my day to day entries as offered. Thanks!
Was better before update
by gp22222 on 2018/04/29 22:52
I still use Glow and value it, but the recent update is less good than the old style. In the old style, I could glance ahead to see exactly where I’d be in my ovulation cycle weeks down the line, which was helpful for scheduling vacations and scheduling life in general as someone who uses the app for contraception. Now the app is flashier looking but there is less information. I can still see the green ovulation window for future weeks by checking the “period calendar” but I can’t click on future dates re: chance of pregnancy or have as good of a total picture of my fertility. Basically my criticism is that it’s clumsier now to look ahead and that even within the current week, the app has become much more geared towards something you have to look at look at every day to get all your information. I’m not quitting the app or giving it a poor rating, but the new changes are less good and make for less effective family planning.
The best app if trying to conceive
by BelllaNicole on 2018/04/07 12:07
I was using a different app to track my periods and fertile window, and after much frustration —due to its inaccuracy- downloaded Glow. Once I saw the interface i immediately knew i should’ve been using this all along. It’s gorgeous and very user friendly. i can’t dress how easy it is to track everything i.e. BBT, physical symptoms, CM and ovulation test results to name a few. One of the things I most appreciated was the notifications it will send you to remind you it’s time to take your prenatal. Cute, right? Another way it helped me was you can search for topics other women posted and see what the responses were. By doing so I was able to discover some things I could do to increase my chances of conceiving or as we say, getting that BFP! I highly recommend this app and i am so happy i found it. You won’t be disappointed!!
BEST FEMALE CYCLE APP I’VE TRIED
by 2 Weeks Nicotine Free on 2020/08/30 02:00
I’ve used Glow for years now. I got pregnant for the first time this year. I started using their sister app called Nurture, which is also an amazing app. Unfortunately, I experienced a pregnancy loss at 20 weeks. Glow has an option to document if you’ve specifically had a pregnancy loss, (and not just that you’ve “had” the baby). Ever since my loss I’ve went back to using Glow and all my insights and analyses are custom to my specific situation. It helps me understand what may be normal after a pregnancy loss. I can’t express enough how great and caring it feels to have an app that individualizes service in this way. It has helped me feel more in control and confident about what’s going on with my body; which, in turn, makes me more confident to get pregnant again in the future. I would recommend this app to all females!
Too much content I don’t want to see
by sfgirl94115 on 2020/09/04 06:16
The app has a lot of pros. If I was looking for community or health information it makes it easy to access that information. I like the bio stats of the data I input. However, I want to use the app to track my personal health and it’s annoying to have to scroll through polls about makeup, posts about cheating, sonograms etc when I am dealing with fertility issues. The last thing I want to see after a miscarriage is a post and hundreds of comments about someone’s sonogram or positive test. I’m happy for that person and her successful pregnancy but it shouldn’t be in my feed because I don’t know this person and I don’t want to have the entire community’s thoughts on it either. I wish they had an option to mute things to allow for more control on what I view when I use the app. I upgraded to the paid to avoid having to see ads. But was disappointed to continue to see content I have no interest in.
DONT BE FOOLED
by Ckeoenebsjzocnf on 2018/05/24 23:50
this app encourages bulling and this is a day in and day out constant problem and they have done NOTHING to resolve all the hate and underage drama all over this app. It’s also encouraging young ladies to have sex post photos they shouldn’t be. Making comments on things they’re not even old enough to know anything about. If you end up with a stalker on your page they won’t do anything to help you resolve that either. They will however make a victim feel like they did something wrong and attack both people. Even the person who has been being verbally abused. You cannot get away from the abuse because “mute” as they put it is NOT the same as a block. So now I have a stalker on my page who will not leave me alone and they won’t do anything about it. If you download best beware of all of these issues.
One Cycle with this app and we’re pregnant!
by LandiMandy on 2020/05/26 22:48
I have tracked my period for years with an app called “Flo” and it did well for that. When I tried to use it for it’s “trying to conceive” portion and tracking ovulation, it was a let down. After our first cycle not getting pregnant, I downloaded “Glow” and purchased both a pack of OPKs and a BBT (basal body temperature thermometer). I logged all of my period data into Glow that was in Flo and it immediately said a much later ovulation date than Flo had predicted (aka hubby and I at the point I was ACTUALLY ovulating, we were taking a break from being rabbits, missing it completely). I tracked and tested with Glow and found my accurate ovulation window and sure enough we found out today we are pregnant! If you’re TTC this is your app!!!! (and PreMom app with their BBT, was a huge help).
Ok
by altdancer on 2018/03/26 15:36
I have been using several period tracker apps as I have been considering switching and am trying to find the one that is best for me. One thing that I would love to see change is more personalized content. More specifically, I am trying to avoid pregnancy. In my health profile I have selected never when it asks about when we will think about it. That may change, but it is where we are right now. We even just terminated a pregnancy, so it is definitely not on the table. So why does the app show me things every day about fertility and trying to conceive? The poll a few days back was “have you told people you are TTC?” We’re not. That is what it says in my health profile. So my suggestion would be to tailor content to the goals listed in our profiles. Also, not a big community person, so it is annoying that everyday the little red dot is there alerting me to new content even though I have not subscribed to any groups.
Accurate & Helpful!
by Kipperly on 2017/11/30 08:10
After coming off BC, I began using this app frequently to attempt to find a pattern in my irregular period. Although it did take a bit of time for Glow to get the estimations correct (which seems expected), for months now my period has been arriving the exact day Glow predicts. The estimated dates of ovulation match up with my symptoms as well and help you you in TTC or avoiding pregnancy. Once my boyfriend and I did began TTC, the ovulation predictions were successful in us conceiving, but we did lose our baby. Glow was quite quick afterwards to correctly predict my period again. We’re giving our next go some time, but in the meantime, the Glow community is a wonderful place to go for support, advice or just some fun. I also love that I can track daily symptoms, moods, CM, medications, flow and so much more. Glow is a super simple app to use and I personally find it extremely helpful.
Love this app
by P.Sherman42wallabyWay on 2017/10/03 18:13
So not only does this app track your period but it also predicts your fertile window and when you ovulate. This app is actually pretty smart because my other 2 apps predicted my period 9 days before I actually got it but Glow was right on point with prediction and I wasn’t quite sure when I ovulated this month and it helped pick a date on when I should have based on my info I had logged. The best part about this app is the community. Most apps just log everything this app has a forum of different pages you can join and chit chat with other ladies, especially if your going through something you feel like you can’t talk to anyone about chances are someone on here has gone through it. I love it and it’s a nice escape from facebook.
Not what it used to be
by Kata478536 on 2020/08/01 09:56
I’ve used glow for many years now. While TTC our now 2 year old daughter, I noticed the layout starting to change and I didn’t love it but it worked. Now that we’re TTC again and I’m using the app more, I’m disappointed. The app is so slow when just wanting to symptoms to your calendar or edit a period. I feel like there are too many “bells and whistles” that weigh this app down. Personal, I just want the calendar, not the message boards and community portion. For me, I’d prefer an option to have the calendar on the main page upon opening the app and a separate button along the bottom or something to access things like blog posts, community forums, etc. I loved using community forums/message boards on another site while TTC the first time and it would have been cool to have it through an app like this, but the layout on Glow now is so messy in my opinion and so slow. They need clean it up and find a way to make it move faster.
Pros and Cons
by Diamond Snowflakes on 2018/04/28 12:46
I love this app and it’s accuracy with period tracking. It’s always somewhere within 24 hours of its predicted start date. I do have two pretty big irritations though. For one, it’s been a lot more cluttered and difficult to navigate, more so since the update. I have to go all over the place just to find what I’m looking for. It’s not streamlined at all. Another thing, I personally have no interest in the community aspect of it, but it too promoted. I’m not crazy about getting notifications on what’s going on with the community. I’m just trying to track my monthly cycle. It’s probably nice to have for other people who feel desperate for answers, but it gets such a prominent place in the app, adding to the complication and clutter. For keeping track of symptoms and all the little things that are indicators of where you’re at in your cycle and adjusting accordingly for accuracy though, this app is top notch.
Accurate but too much Community
by Courtc3 on 2020/05/19 17:55
The fertility tracking was accurate - I got pregnant after only three months of trying - and I really liked the functionality of adding pictures of multiple ovulation tests so you could compare side-by-side. The biggest downside of this app for me is the Community section. I with there was a way to hide it (if there is, it’s not obvious to me). Everything the app posts is flooded with women posting - not commenting on the article, etc., but posting photos of their pregnancy tests. It gets annoying when that’s all you see. It’s also unsettling for someone who’s TTC with a first baby to read about women who’ve tried for YEARS with no luck. I know we all need support, but it would be better to make the community section something users seek out vs putting it at the front and center of everything, so we can choose what comments and topics we see.
I’m not the reviewing type!
by MissyCDai on 2020/08/12 18:09
This app’s purpose has helped me tremendously in regards to trying to conceive. It is extremely accurate as to when my period starts, but is always off in my ovulation day. But it does help with tracking my symptoms, logging my moods, and recording any changes my body goes through daily. After a loss, my body has changed drastically with my cycle, so the ability to have all my information in one easy to find spot is amazing. I also enjoy that I can connect with my husband so he can log items, too. We’re working on baby #1 and we’re excited that Glow (along with my ob/gyn) is helping us through this process. It’s comforting knowing I can turn to this app and find many groups of people who are in similar boats who can offer advice, and share their stories, and offer motivation. Great app!
Just one little thing!
by headquarterss on 2017/10/17 19:28
If I'm in the middle of reading someone's comment or post on the Community portion of your app, sometimes I read something there that I want to check with my own calendar. So I go to "Home" to check out my calendar, but when I click back on "Community" it starts me from the top of the community page, and not the post I was just on. It would be really great if you added the ability to click between Home and Community without losing your place of what you were reading within the community posts! If I want to reference my own calendar, then I have to click on Community and scroll, scroll, scroll until I can find the post I was looking at originally! Kind of like if you're on Instagram and you switch btw your likes and home page, that would be great!! Thank you!
Almost accurate
by Dyneohmite on 2018/05/08 16:28
I am currently a mother of one beautiful little girl. We’re in the process of figuring out cycles and timing for #2. I only ever used Ovia for my first, and it took us nearly a year to conceive. I understand it takes more than doing whatever an app says to make a baby but it was my first, and I never thought it’d be that hard to get pregnant! Fast forward, I’m now using Clue, Ovia and Glow, they’re all 3 getting the same information, as their programming allows, and Glow is by far the most accurate in its predictions and adapting to MY body based off of the information I input. My only complaint is the app sends excessive notifications daily, but, it’s thorough and I’m sure not going to delete it for that! Give it a shot! Good luck makin babies!
Game-changer! Fantastic for Tracking cycles, symptoms, more options would be even better!
by spazzymcgee45 on 2018/08/29 21:24
Just wish there were even more options for customizing and tracking things like symptoms. I think it would be good to add physical symptoms such as “muscle tension,” “muscle cramping,” “leak/incontinence,” etc. cause I think quite a lot of women may deal with those symptoms, especially around menstruation. Like, if I could create my own customized variables to track, such as inserting/taking out nuvaring, having had an episode of enuresis during the night, etc., that would be amazing. Also, for tracking sex, if there was a way to select “multiple sessions” but still be able to track birth control methods, position, orgasm, that would be great too.
Constant pressure to go Premium
by mrs.bre on 2019/09/29 12:03
I’ve used this app for about two and a half years. I’ve found it to be easy to use and helpful. At different time I liked the offered community and I like being able to customize my screen. I will say that some of the this they preview on my screen that I didn’t chose to click into (like I would a group) can be pretty raunchy or even traumatic, considering a variety of women’s experiences with abuse and relational difficulties. I’m not usually thrilled with that. BUT my most frustrated complaint is how the app changed in the last year or so. I was pregnant from March-December last year, and regained my need for the app recently so upon returning, everywhere I click its a push to use the premium, paid version of the app. I feel like I can barely click anywhere. It’s overwhelming and pushy. I just want the tracker!
I would give it ZERO stars if I could.
by Take a minute and read on 2019/09/27 17:44
Now let me explain that the period tracking, ovulation tracking, pregnancy tracker have been decent. Not super significant but does the job. However, when it comes to the “Glow Community,” it is utterly and completely pathetic. There are forums in which topics are discussed. The issue I have is that I have had my account suspended now TWICE for nothing more than the fact that I “hurt someone’s feelings” with my opinion in an OPINION BASED FORUM. I have not disobey they rules by any means. I don’t even get a notification of suspension. I just attempt to make a comment and am told “your account has been suspended”. It’s been brought to my attention that those who disagree with your opinion are able to report that you have hurt their feelings and you are immediately suspended. It doesn’t make sense to have an opinion based forum in which only SOME opinions are welcome as long as they fit along with the apps majority. Just disgusting.
Starting over
by Rosebud89 on 2017/11/08 12:55
I was using glow to track my cycles for 7 months and became pregnant. I then starting using glow nurture. I deleted glow because I wasn’t going to use it to track my cycles. Unfortunately I had a miscarriage at 9 weeks. I turned off all email notifications and let glow nurture know about the miscarriage since it was and still is too painful. Well I just got my First period after my MC and am back on glow (it remembered my info). I am still receiving notifications of pregnancy in chat rooms I was on in glow nurture. (Which I have deleted) I feel glow should give the same respect and when you log about a MC they should stop sending you reminders and notifications from glow nurture about how far along I am and notifications from the pregnancy chat rooms I was in before.
Easy and valid
by Bsouthe1 on 2019/03/28 01:34
Free and easy to use. I initially started to chart my own ovulation using strips, and normally Glow is always right on target with the ovulation predictions. It’s also been pretty spot on with my period predictions, only off by maybe a day. This has also probably been because I had been consistently measuring and reporting these things myself for a few months at first, but whenever I read a Glow prediction and then followed through with an ovulation test or would anticipate my period, ifs all been very close, If not exact. I find this to be an easy to use, valid method for charting and predicting your cycle whether it be trying to conceive or trying to avoid. Thank you Glow!
😍 This app is amazing/ wish somethings were free.
by Rainkyri on 2019/05/20 11:01
This app is amazing. I love the design of it and also how easy it is to use. Tracking my period/ Ovulation My first months ovulation was off but that was due to me not knowing my cycle but now the app is pretty spot on. Now I know that I have a longer cycle than the average. I love that I am becoming more aware of my body. Its amazing to feel and see body changes during your cycle. The community I love the community. I am TTC-ing and find that having advice from other women is encouraging. Its almost like a sex aid class where you find out that we all experience the close to or the same symptoms during our periods and ovulation. Be careful for what groups you join. The relationship groups can be very draining and might require you to be Dr. Phil Because the women/teenagers want a lot of advice for toxic relationships. That is not the apps fault. You can always exit a group. Prime I don’t mind that you have to pay for the app. Its just that I wish predictions were free. Dead Developer, May you please make an option to turn off notifications for a specific comment. I don’t want to see who replies each time to a comment that I posted on. Its annoying.
They’ll charge your debit/credit card for a free trial without your permission
by Chy Johnson on 2017/10/02 05:52
Your app charged me for a free trial that wasn’t even over yet because it had just started 2 days before my iTunes account went on lock because my card was charged without my permission from you guys now I don’t know what the issue is I have reached out to you guys through email 4 times now and no one ever responds I can no longer download apps or update apps because my account is locked until I pay $7.99 for a free trial please get back to me because I am not gonna pay you guys for a free trial that wasn’t even over yet before you guys charged my debit card without my permission now I am so extra and petty that I’ll bring this to any News and even the police because I’m not gonna let you guys trick me for my money so like I said someone needs to get back to me soon because I’m growing very impatient and I wanna go to the police over this I don’t care if it’s only $7.99
Disappointed
by t.g.ft.h on 2019/10/06 14:15
I’m disappointed with this app. I’ve had it for years, mostly to keep track of my ovulation period, but I’ve been recently diagnosed with PMDD and PCOS so I’m trying to keep a better record of my symptoms. I was planning to log in everyday so I could better visualize the changes of my symptoms. I allowed glow to send me notifications and they send notifications multiple times a day about “sales” that they’re having. I don’t think it’s worth my money... I don’t plan on purchasing an app service. STOP with the daily sales! Once in a while, ok, but every single day? It’s extremely annoying. However, if you don’t spend money, you can’t see your analysis. And I’m not asking for predictions of my symptoms, but just an analysis of month to month. It’s useless to log in everyday if you don’t spend money. I’m turning off my notifications again as I realized the log ins are useless.
Educated but discouraged
by Helimom2015 on 2019/03/01 03:11
This app is very helpful to learn about your body, your cycle and yourself. The ability to join and leave appropriate groups is wonderful. The complaint I have is that the app inundated me with how and why and when I should consider IVF. After trying to conceive for almost a year now, I left certain community groups to avoid having to see success stories of others while I’m unable to conceive....only to be reminded daily by the app itself that I’m not conceiving. Then it goes on to suggest that I update to the premium service and then various IVF options. I already know that’s an option, but to have the daily reminders is a little debilitating in my venture. Perhaps this app could be altered to have an optional section without pushy “suggestions/notifications” that remind me daily of my inability to conceive.
Pretty good :)
by Crd5q on 2018/06/08 12:00
Good fertility tracking app; wish I could opt out of the "community" feature. I have no interest in having a mini Babycenter on my phone. I unchecked everything I could but still get red dots for "community notifications" and they bug me. App is a big crowded but I get that many women using these want to track as much info as possible. I'm not a huge technophile and prefer a more basic setup but app is user-friendly enough that I keep up with it. I wish the layout were a little simpler though. I wish I could find my temp chart more easily. But out of 4-5 apps that I downloaded with the idea of tracking period dates and daily temperature Glow is the one I ended up using. One cool feature would be to display days until you can take a pregnancy test.
Too much clutter
by Blairomie on 2018/10/18 16:14
I used Glow to conceive my first son in 2014. We even paid the $50/month to use the GlowFirst function. Now that I’m ready for another baby, i thought I’d use the app again. Big mistake. It’s basically a huge chat room for bored women. There are over 4K comments on a wedding dress post. It’s a PREGNANCY planning app. Not sure why anyone TTC would purchase (and brag) about paying full price for a tight fitting dress. I mean, you’re PLANNING to gain baby weight. The whole thing is just annoying. I feel like i’m reading the babycenter birth boards. It’s obnoxious because i am now involved in a medical trial and have only the next 21 months to conceive, deliver and breastfeed before i have to get back on endocrine therapy after having breast cancer. I expected to come back here and find the useable app i used last time. Instead I’m considering going to an actual fertility specialist because honestly, a transvaginal ultrasound sounds better than dealing with this overstuffed and basically useless app. Also, there is a 12+ rating on the app. A reviewer commented this is MUCH to mature for a 12 year old. Someone from the Glow team responded that the apps are “generally” for 17+ Yet, i have a screenshot from today and the App Store lists the app as 12+ Women are discussing x-rated stuff that even at 37, i don’t want to hear (and I’m not a prude). This app has gone WAAAAAYYYYYY downhill.
Premium is a money scheme!
by IreneIscream on 2019/11/03 17:47
They advertise that you can spin a wheel every so often to get discounts. Well I ended up getting 10/15% off and I considered the purchase. When I thought I was getting a better deal I went ahead and clicked buy thinking it would take me to the total cost or a preview before the transaction. It did not! They immediately charged me 68$ and I didn’t even get my discount. To make things worse I didn’t even get premium access for a week after the purchase. I’ve contacted them over 5 times now in the last month and a half about my discount not being applied and my subscription being late. And even with the promise of excellent customer service with prime membership there has been no reply. This just proves all they care about is money in their hands and not the satisfaction of the customer nor the product they are giving. Please take this into consideration when using this app.
BIASED ADMINS & GLOW DOES NOTHING ABOUT IT
by ttcmomma on 2019/03/17 03:24
The community aspect of this app is baffling. & Glow absolutely does not care. I’ve seen comments that do not break any community guidelines get deleted simply because a biased admin does not agree with what the comment said. Multiple users have gotten suspended for speaking up about it, including myself. Users who bring legitimate concerns to the attention of an admin in the group have gotten suspended by that same admin simply because they either don’t want to deal with it or just don’t care. You claim to be a supportive community but clearly some of your Admins are not and you refuse to do anything about it. Don’t bother replying with a generic developer response. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Watch me get banned from this app just for saying this. Goes to show the corruption. ✌🏼 @ developer response, so you have nothing to say about everything else I mentioned? Btw, one of the posts didn’t break any rules actually but you won’t do anything about that. I could name a few users I’ve personally talked to who’ve been banned for no reason. They didn’t break any guidelines. Stop beating around the bush and only responding to one part of this review. Respond to the whole thing. I’m not the only one who’s noticed this issue. Some of your Admins are biased and some suspend people for absolutely no reason. Like I said, do something about it. 🙄
Love the app but please return to the original view
by Nicolerenee2222 on 2018/07/11 23:34
I love this app and I believe I am one of the earliest users of it. It helped me get pregnant in 2014 with my first child. I feel like it is way more accurate than other apps, even fertility fan. That being said, I am not a fan of the update as I cannot open the app and immediately see my calendar. I do not like that I have to click an extra button to see it and then it is hard to read. It was so much easier with the original view. Not sure why the change but it doesn’t work. Please return to the original view. That is the only reason for the missing star. Other fertility apps take you straight to your calendar as the first thing you see. There’s a reason for that.
Excellent app until now...
by anonymoushopeful on 2017/12/14 03:42
I have been using this app for almost a year to track my period and ovulation. It has been a GREAT resource and tracking app until now. I purchased the iPhone X and when I attempted to log into my account, the app wouldn’t load. I contacted them via their email and after following a few suggested actions- I am still waiting for my information to be recovered. I have removed the app from my old phone, logged out, deleted and re loaded the app, turned my phone off and on, updated my iOS, Re synched my account....and still nothing. My information still exists but my period tracker and ovulation is on some default. I have emailed their customer service yet again in hopes they will resolve this issue sooner than later! I am at their mercy as I trusted this app with my information and never kept another record. If they resolve this major glitch, I again would recommend this site but recommend you keep a backup log. Update: as of today they have recovered my logs! I must say their customer service was always in contact with me and luckily were able to restore my account. I hope to those of you this is happening to reach out and give them a chance.
Needs Updates, Frustrating App
by SherriAE on 2019/02/05 13:45
I have been using this app, along with a few others for 1 year. I find Glow to be the worst ovulation tracker, as there is no option to manually mark ovulation. When I initially started tracking my periods after I stopped BC, I had 40+ day cycles and a few months in, learned I was not ovulating. I started tracking BBT and using ovulation strips & taking a few supplements, which have shortened my cycles to 27-30 days. I have been ovulating past 4 cycles. Glow still always predicts the 40 days even though I log literally everything. I always input the Positive ovulation tests and have great temp shifts. The algorithm still says I didnt ovulate yet. I did! Very frustrating. Glow needs to add in an option to manually mark ovulation when this occurs. There are better tracking apps out there
No longer free
by cjs_3 on 2019/02/11 22:17
So, I had this app for a year and I only got it because it was free. Today I received a notification saying I had three options to choose from because it is no longer free. Then if you don’t want to pay then you have to go into settings and manage it that way, instead of just deleting the app because you will be charged to your account. This is in very small print at the bottom. I don’t mind paying a reasonable price for an app, but when you try and trick the buyers and make them go into their settings just to get rid of it or you’ll charge them, in my opinion it’s absurd. People should be able to just delete an app without being charged. Just want people to know what they’re getting into. Other than that the app was pretty accurate, but because of poor business strategy I’m giving a two star review.
Best app
by Emleejass on 2020/01/25 20:38
I started out with Eve then went on with Glow where my journey began as i was TTC. This app was so helpful every step of the way. 2019 was a trying year and this app made things easy for me and the women on the community can be a bit harsh sometimes but for the most part i love how it brings women together...giving each other a boost and telling them not to give up. The stories on here are amazing. This app gave me tips...great information on it. The best part is that after a year, this app helped me get my positive....the women on there reminded me not to lose hope and I’m glad i didn’t. I now move on the Nuture. I have never had a problem with these apps.
Great basic period tracker
by Neen_Machine on 2018/04/08 21:24
I thought this app was fantastic before I got pregnant. Now after a miscarriage I am moving to a different app. 1) They have a companion pregnancy app, which I was super excited about. You use the same login... but they don’t port any of your data, which seems crazy to me. I had to enter the date of my LMP, average cycle length, ovulation date, etc. which really annoyed me considering they already have all of this information. 2) More importantly, after I miscarried the user experience was just really bad. It keeps those dates marked as “pregnant” which is tough emotionally (but I could handle it), but more troublesome is that my listed average cycle length has gotten longer. My pregnancy/miscarriage should not have added any length to my average cycle (all cycles prior to my miscarriage were ~32 days and now my cycle length is 36 days). This is a pretty fatal flaw in their algorithm IMO. If I had been several months pregnant instead of several week, would my average cycle have been weeks longer?! I may use this to continue tracking my period but honestly I probably won’t. I also like that with other apps you can see your cycle days throughout the cycle without manually counting each time to see which cycle day you ovulated on, etc.
Updated review
by MG171586 on 2018/02/23 15:34
I recently left a review after my history had been erased with an upgrade which of course is extremely disappointing and worrying as this is my only way of tracking. I deleted the app and reinstalled it and it all came back. Not sure if that’s supposed to happen but I’m glad I did it. I’m pretty happy with the app otherwise, I like that it has optional features catering to different stages for different women. I was pretty upset when my history was gone but wanted to leave a better review after it had been resolved. The developer did respond but I happened to get it back on my own. Not sure how well it’s tracking fertility as I am not actively trying to get pregnant again. Will update when I do!
Keep taking features away
by Colorlover23 on 2019/10/03 06:53
Glow was great, and user friendly, gave lots of info, and made everything easy to access, but there was a recent update where they took away a ton of information and want you to pay for premium now. In particular the “average cycle day” was super helpful for helping me to make sure my cycles stay regular, but now it’s super inconvenient because I have to scroll back through past months and count days. Almost every feature except for the date my period is due and my ovulation date have been changed or taken away, it’s frustrating and I haven’t found another app that’s better, yet. I just think it’s rude and stupid to take away an app feature and then try to charge someone for that feature, if they want it back, glow will never get any money from me, for that reason alone.
Great app, but..
by Amethyst_24 on 2019/01/02 14:15
I downloaded this app and really loved how accurate and user-friendly it was. However, I vehemently agree with other reviewers: the majority of the community is crass and immature. I found anything BUT support in the community, all because I was pro-life. Quite the opposite, I was insulted and harassed for my beliefs. My account was even suspended for “stirring up dissension,” when I was only expressing what I believed. I didn’t appreciate the heavy censoring on pro-life posts, when others could discuss abortion positively without being censored. I eventually deleted the app and found one I liked better. Personally, I get too emotionally invested in any social platform I use, so it’s best for me to use an app that has no community. ☺️ Other than that mentioned above, this app worked really well!
Not happy about update
by gabeyho on 2018/04/14 17:27
The new update includes a scrolling feed of which the user has no content control. Now I have to involuntarily see community posts with foul language and lewd photos. I like this app for tracking and have been using it for years, but the community is vulgar. I have no desire to see pictures of peoples backsides in their underwear, or of their trip to Jamaica and the discussion of how much they did it with their boyfriend. I have always just ignored the community but if they’re going to start forcing me to see hi-lighted community posts and photos I think I’m done here. Thanks but no thanks. I will not be recommending this to anyone else from now on until they change this feature.

Great app all around
by Kg9274729273 on 2020/10/23 20:11
I use this for pregnancy prevention, tracking of my period, and general health & wellness. Love that this lets me track many different things besides just those pertaining to my cycle! I’ve also learned a lot from the education section of this app since they have very interesting articles. Generally an all around great app. (Would be cool if they put a water consumption tracker in here.) ;)

by Susihkz08910513 on 2020/10/23 15:09
I don’t like how you have to pay to get premium. It wasn’t like that when I first downloaded it a few years ago, and the cost is expensive.

by UNCacapellalovin on 2020/10/22 07:18
You can log just about anything and everything, from your period to your moods to the position you were in when you tried to conceive...I don’t use every bit of it’s functionality but it’s helped me know when I’m ovulating after just 1-2 months of logging! The only detail that is missing in this very detailed app are more representative graphics. Not everyone is fair skinned and I think it would be a good move for Glow to add the option for different colored graphics based on your ethnicity.

by ZheAwesomePenguin on 2020/10/21 14:28
I love the design and how colorful and bright everything is. But I wish there was a way to hide all the things relating to pregnancy. I know I’m the minority on this, but even the suggestion of it to me makes me sick and uncomfortable. I hate seeing kids, I hate seeing the prenatals, I don’t want to know my chance of pregnancy(ew), I just want to track my cycle and that is it. For that reason, I’m going back to the free version of Flo. It’s not as colorful, but I don’t have to have fertility and pregnancy talk shoved at me every five seconds. I can mark what I need to and that is it. If Glow ever came out with an option to opt out of everything regarding pregnancy, I’d make the switch. But right now, it’s not worth it. I can’t have myself becoming physically ill from an app every time I open it. It may sound silly, but it genuinely disgusts me. I’d rather watch the internet Gauntlet again.

I am a women who's period is always irregular. My periods are between 28,30,35, or even 45 days apart. It is awful because I'm constantly in pain. It feels like I'm ovualting all the time. Now that I have a very steamy sex life, feeling the pressure of a missing period is very stressful. I read an article on the app and it mentioned getting on the pill to help regulate my periods. I did but because I am 38 and already have 3 children of my own. I have decided to get a Tubal ligation to permanently resolve my worries. This app has helped me guide my way through my menstrual cycle. I highly recommend this app to all my girlfriends. It's so hard to remember our monthly periods.

Use this app to track my period and when my husband and I were trying to get pregnant it was so nice to have a beautifully organized calendar of my most fertile days. It’s so nice to be able to look back and see exactly when my last period was and all of my logged symptoms. In my book, this app is a Must-have.

This app saved me. I struggled to get pregnant for years and the amount of emotional support you can find here is incredible. It’s more than just an app to monitor your cycle. It’s a community. Being able to sync your app to your partners phone is great, though I never used it for my cycles. However, I plan to use it to allow him to track our growing baby on Glow Nurture; an opportunity I wouldn’t have if not for the accuracy and tips I received from Glow to help me get pregnant. Thank you, Glow!

I like this app because it combines so many things and gives a lot of information but I think it needs work. I wish It gave me more information on my temp and my CM and what that meant. I don’t like all the notifications for 5 different topics, and I could do without the community portion, honestly I don’t care about random strangers posts. I really wish I could sync my tempdrop automatically to this app instead of having to manually add it in. GLOW PLEASE TEAM UP WITH TEMPDROP, it would help so many people.
Great App!

spammy app filled with nonsense they’re always trying to send you notifications about to look at. feels like tracking your period with a slot machine. i don’t care about the gossip posts on your forums. and the “insights” are a joke. after i log i had sex, it sends me a notification that i have an insight... “you just had sex!” yeah, duh, i just told you that. do yourself a favor and use flo instead. calmly designed without all the junk. and very informative.

If you have a miscarriage this app makes it incredibly difficult to edit it and constantly sends reminder of your “would have been” pregnancy.

I got banned for no reason from the forum.. I want to share my pregnancy journey with others but I can’t even tho I’ve been on this app for years n even made a new account. Thumbs down Glow 👎 negative stars. Stop taking away people’s constitutional rights and freedom of speech.

One of two
by Babydoll1693 on 2020/10/14 15:10
Love this app! Especially the community aspect of it but I’m knocking off one star because I am using this and another app because Glow sets a solid date of when your period should come but doesn’t give you a range of dates that it could come on. I also like the notes section and the option to add medication. If Glow could add the range of dates your period should come w/o immediately saying “you’re period is late” then it would be perfect.
I love it

Period predictions are extremely accurate. I like that I’m able to track symptoms and add notes for each calendar day to reference later, which helps me to forecast symptoms and plan accordingly. I also enjoy scrolling through the blog section; there’s so much women empowerment! Overall, great app!
Pregnant!

Great tool to track menstrual cycle and ovulation
by R06Lady on 2020/10/13 05:08
This helps track your menstrual cycle and ovulation. Adding logs is great. I didn’t pay premium and it was still helpful. I hope to get pregnant soon.
This is it Ladies!!!! The only App you’ll need!!!

Super easy to use, and keep track of your cycle, fertility Etc!!!! And after I had my baby, I could still use the same App to track my cycle!!! I used this App from the time we started trying to conceive, during my pregnancy and still use it for my Period!!!!!
Great App with a greater Community!
by Alexus Benzin on 2020/10/13 03:49
I’ve had period tracker apps in the past but I’ve never had an app that has so many features and fits so many different lifestyles whether you’re just tracking your period, trying for a pregnancy or you are already pregnant. I love the app so much I paid for the premium membership for a lifetime. I’ve use glow for quite a few years now and I recommended to everybody. Most Tracking apps out there aren’t as developed as this one and don’t have such an amazing community as this one!
👌🏽

Good way to track your cycle, have to pay for other features
Very very nifty
by hanner1091 on 2020/04/22 19:12
Have you ever wished you could track all of your monthly physical and mental health symptoms to know for sure, when they happened and why? This app allows you to track all of that and much more. After 3 months of tracking your monthly cycle symptoms you can easily compare and understand exactly what happens and exactly when. It’s really an amazing app and well made too. So much customization and personalization. Every woman needs this app!! I love when I’m at a docs appointment and they ask all those questions like “when was the last time you had sex?” Or “what day was the last day of your most recent period?”. It’s a total game changer. Also it’s helps to know exactly what to tell your doctor. When you can see your period is changing or acne is worse than it was however many months ago you’ve since tracked it, you’ll never have to wonder if it was “all in your head” or “maybe your not remembering it right”. This app with the subscription is worth it for any woman out there that wonders about their ever changing monthly symptoms.
Great
by DominicanPrincesa on 2020/08/19 15:37
This app is pretty good. Not only can you track your periods, track ovulation, track your pregnancy, and keep track of your babies growth and development, but you also have a community of people where you can find a group for anything. There are groups for baby names, breastfeeding, labor, trying to conceive, relationships, etc. This app would be perfect, if I weren’t for some of the women on there. They really aren't the nicest people and they try so hard to enforce the rules that they sound very rude towards any new person that makes a simple mistake. It isn’t even their job to attack people like they do. Just report it to the admin or politely let the person know and move on. You don’t need 5 women repeating the same thing on one post. Another thing I don’t like is when you make an anonymous posts, why cant you comment on your post and still remain anonymous?? That just doesn’t make sense to me. All in all, it’s a good app. I’m on it constantly. EDIT: THIS IS A HUGE PROBLEM. There are underage teenage girls on here trying to get pregnant. People are encouraging them and giving them advice. The admins are aware and so far have done nothing about it. They have not deleted the groups of underage teens planning pregnancy. That’s ridiculous.
Pretty good up until lately
by anonymom2b on 2017/12/08 12:04
I have been using the app for about 7 months. We have been trying to have a baby and I can never keep up when I last had my period unless I look at my BC pack. Obviously, now that I’m off of them I needed something to help track it as well as ovulation. It’s been pretty good with some exceptions but I think that is mainly because of some issues I’m having and not because of the app. I have found some great support and advice among the members. It’s also just nice to have a place to go and join specific groups that are similar to your situation or interests. That has been a very positive experience. Women lifting people up. The last few days the app hasn’t been able to open. I’m not sure if it has something to do with the latest update but I have never had this issue until this week. I hope it gets fixed ASAP because I have really come to rely on this app for logging all of my information.
Slow, Bloated, and Busy
by obxmusicfan on 2020/08/27 03:27
REVIEW UPDATED AUG. 2020 - I literally only keep this app because of how long I’ve been using it and how much data I’ve logged. It has gotten SO BAD! First I thought it was my older phone and chalked it up the that, but then I got a new phone and it’s the same. It takes forever to load anything, it’s multiple clicks to do input data, and the app interface is busy busy! The pop ups are too much, the little widgets are too much. There also used to be a lot more free tips and graphs, and for how much advertisement happens on this app it should still have those things But mostly this app is SLOW! Glow used to be awesome, but now it’s just outdated. If you’re just getting started with tracking find a simpler app (not Eve because Glow owns them I’m fairly certain) that’s simpler and works smoothly, like Clue. That app is actually made by women for women, unlike Glow which I read was started by a bunch of men! That fact really started to show in the last couple years. Also don’t be fooled by the pretty pictures you see here on the App Store. This app looks NOTHING like that at all! I contacted support and they told me the update was “rolling out slowly,” but that was almost a dozen updates ago...
Very good, but could be better
by Sbpitchin on 2019/11/12 17:25
UPDATE: The community feature is nice but there are some very rude and nasty ladies on the forums. Post with caution. I really do love Glow, but there are a few things I wish the app had. First of all, I wish that if you are using the app to conceive a baby that after your “ovulation date” it showed “days post ovulation” instead of “days until next period”. I don’t know why but seeing “days until next period” makes me sad and most women are symptom checking after ovulation and I feel like that information would be more helpful. If you aren’t trying to conceive then by all means leave it as is. Also, when putting in symptoms, cervix position, BBT, CM consistency, etc, I wish there were more every day insights into how that matches up to where you’re at in your cycle other than just comparing to other glow users. I never know if what I’m logging is normal for where I’m at in my cycle and I never seem to match with the other users which makes me concerned. I do feel like the newest update is very helpful though and have learned a lot from glow.
It was great...before the update
by acx04 on 2019/10/04 03:01
I had this app for over a year and it was great. It gave me some scientific research facts, easy to use, excellent at keep notes and easily tracked my period. Until recently, the new update made it harder to log and re-log, it’s also harder for me to edit my notes when I need to add something. The cycle analysis is always in the way and it’s only promoting glow premium; I don’t mind the advertisement until it gets in the way of everything I need to do on the app. The security lock on the app is very good and convenient. The stories that every other glow user makes it feel like social media and it makes me want to stay on the app explore and communicate with all the other women on the app which makes me feel very warm and fuzzy every time I see women supporting each other on the app. I’ll wait for the next update but if it’s really not giving me easy and quick access then sadly I have to find a more simple and easy to period app to use. Hopefully the glow staff and creator can do something about the new updates. Thank you very much for taking my opinion into account.
Tracking Great, Community Not
by JennyL4859693 on 2019/01/23 18:39
I loved being able to track my dates, my symptoms and have all of my information in one spot to look back on. However I became turned off from the app when I began looking through the community section. A lot of people seemed extremely rude. It seems like those who can’t get pregnant want to make those who are feel bad and those who can get pregnant easily want to brag about it and make those whole can’t feel bad. There’s a forum to see if pregnancy tests are positive and some people said no even though it was an obvious yes just to be rude while others didn’t have the positive line and the comments were so harsh. I felt like this was supposed to be a place for support, a place to get advice and a partnership of women who want people to understand what they’re going through. My jaw would drop reading comments and my heart would hurt seeing responses. If you use the app, use the calendar and track your symptoms but avoid the community. There are some really nice and great people but there are more people who aren’t who ruin this app.
Most Accurate Period Tracking App
by AmandaUchiha on 2018/07/04 13:41
I don’t know how well it works for fertility as I’m not trying to get pregnant, but this app predicts my periods better than any other app I have used! That alone earns this app 5 stars! It’s usually perfect or only a day off. The community can be fun but I agree that some of the ladies on the app can be very rude, but that goes for any social based app so I won’t dock a star for it. Great app overall, just avoid the community if hash words get to you. EDIT: I have been seeing bullying and rude comments in excess lately. I would suggest that there be harsher penalties for bullies and rude women than just having their comments removed. There are grown women on this app who will literally stalk your profile and comment rude things on your other posts as well, just because you said something that they don’t agree with. I’m still leaving it at 5 stars, but as someone who is a strong advocate against bullying, this is very concerning to me.
Second time user!
by lil mater on 2018/08/03 07:02
I used this app for nine months before I got pregnant with my perfect little boy that’s one this month! This app was a ton of help and I have told many people like me about it! We are trying again so I am using the app once again and it’s just not the same at all! It is a lot more difficult to maneuver around and a year ago (without paying for prime) it was a lot more helpful. It really seems like this app is now based on trying to advertise and get woman to get fertility help when they really don’t need it! That’s all that’s been popping up since I’ve used it now for the last three months. Vitamins, bbt, keep track of your fertile window (which you girls only have 12 hours really so make sure it’s every day if not more:) GNC has a his and hers vitamin pack...look at the label and buy each vitamin separate because it is “blend” if not! Vitamins will take around 4-5 montages to start helping so don’t give up! Best of luck
I absolutely love this app!
by Danita Marie on 2020/07/29 18:18
It’s addicting!! I am constantly reading the community posts and getting sucked into the juicy stories! Besides juicy stories, the community can be quite a system of support and knowledge. They answer questions and offer kindness when and if you post about something that is bothering you. I also love how Eve/Glow grows with you!! It starts as a period tracking app (Eve), then it’s a trying to conceive app/ovulation tracker (Glow), then there’s a pregnancy version (glow nurture), and a version for when your baby is born (Glow baby). It seriously is the best. I love the daily calendar where I can log important things and I love all the articles. They are so helpful and informative. I remember reading the articles daily when I was pregnant. Every article described how my baby was growing each day and what new sensations the baby was experiencing with growth. It was amazing. I highly recommend this app!
Issue with adding my partner (husband)
by Brooke Lee Lui on 2018/09/10 01:54
The directions indicate to add my husbands name and email, then says “success, an email and notification will be sent” I’ve done this 4 times and although he’s checked his email, junk mail, spam box, etc he’s not received any of them. However it also says in the directions for him to sign in using his email to his own flow account. These are a bit contradicting directions, so is something wrong in the app, or does he need to download and sign in and we won’t receive the email and instructions?? Please help as he’d like to be able to see my account as offered. Otherwise, A+ with the app, I love everything about it and all the information. I would LOVE a pdf or something with a list of what all the acronyms mean, I have some of them down but I have to go to google and try and find each one if I cannot figure it out :) ... I’ll change my review to 5 stars and update once my hubby can link up and see my day to day entries as offered. Thanks!
Was better before update
by gp22222 on 2018/04/29 22:52
I still use Glow and value it, but the recent update is less good than the old style. In the old style, I could glance ahead to see exactly where I’d be in my ovulation cycle weeks down the line, which was helpful for scheduling vacations and scheduling life in general as someone who uses the app for contraception. Now the app is flashier looking but there is less information. I can still see the green ovulation window for future weeks by checking the “period calendar” but I can’t click on future dates re: chance of pregnancy or have as good of a total picture of my fertility. Basically my criticism is that it’s clumsier now to look ahead and that even within the current week, the app has become much more geared towards something you have to look at look at every day to get all your information. I’m not quitting the app or giving it a poor rating, but the new changes are less good and make for less effective family planning.
The best app if trying to conceive
by BelllaNicole on 2018/04/07 12:07
I was using a different app to track my periods and fertile window, and after much frustration —due to its inaccuracy- downloaded Glow. Once I saw the interface i immediately knew i should’ve been using this all along. It’s gorgeous and very user friendly. i can’t dress how easy it is to track everything i.e. BBT, physical symptoms, CM and ovulation test results to name a few. One of the things I most appreciated was the notifications it will send you to remind you it’s time to take your prenatal. Cute, right? Another way it helped me was you can search for topics other women posted and see what the responses were. By doing so I was able to discover some things I could do to increase my chances of conceiving or as we say, getting that BFP! I highly recommend this app and i am so happy i found it. You won’t be disappointed!!
BEST FEMALE CYCLE APP I’VE TRIED
by 2 Weeks Nicotine Free on 2020/08/30 02:00
I’ve used Glow for years now. I got pregnant for the first time this year. I started using their sister app called Nurture, which is also an amazing app. Unfortunately, I experienced a pregnancy loss at 20 weeks. Glow has an option to document if you’ve specifically had a pregnancy loss, (and not just that you’ve “had” the baby). Ever since my loss I’ve went back to using Glow and all my insights and analyses are custom to my specific situation. It helps me understand what may be normal after a pregnancy loss. I can’t express enough how great and caring it feels to have an app that individualizes service in this way. It has helped me feel more in control and confident about what’s going on with my body; which, in turn, makes me more confident to get pregnant again in the future. I would recommend this app to all females!
Too much content I don’t want to see
by sfgirl94115 on 2020/09/04 06:16
The app has a lot of pros. If I was looking for community or health information it makes it easy to access that information. I like the bio stats of the data I input. However, I want to use the app to track my personal health and it’s annoying to have to scroll through polls about makeup, posts about cheating, sonograms etc when I am dealing with fertility issues. The last thing I want to see after a miscarriage is a post and hundreds of comments about someone’s sonogram or positive test. I’m happy for that person and her successful pregnancy but it shouldn’t be in my feed because I don’t know this person and I don’t want to have the entire community’s thoughts on it either. I wish they had an option to mute things to allow for more control on what I view when I use the app. I upgraded to the paid to avoid having to see ads. But was disappointed to continue to see content I have no interest in.
DONT BE FOOLED
by Ckeoenebsjzocnf on 2018/05/24 23:50
this app encourages bulling and this is a day in and day out constant problem and they have done NOTHING to resolve all the hate and underage drama all over this app. It’s also encouraging young ladies to have sex post photos they shouldn’t be. Making comments on things they’re not even old enough to know anything about. If you end up with a stalker on your page they won’t do anything to help you resolve that either. They will however make a victim feel like they did something wrong and attack both people. Even the person who has been being verbally abused. You cannot get away from the abuse because “mute” as they put it is NOT the same as a block. So now I have a stalker on my page who will not leave me alone and they won’t do anything about it. If you download best beware of all of these issues.
One Cycle with this app and we’re pregnant!
by LandiMandy on 2020/05/26 22:48
I have tracked my period for years with an app called “Flo” and it did well for that. When I tried to use it for it’s “trying to conceive” portion and tracking ovulation, it was a let down. After our first cycle not getting pregnant, I downloaded “Glow” and purchased both a pack of OPKs and a BBT (basal body temperature thermometer). I logged all of my period data into Glow that was in Flo and it immediately said a much later ovulation date than Flo had predicted (aka hubby and I at the point I was ACTUALLY ovulating, we were taking a break from being rabbits, missing it completely). I tracked and tested with Glow and found my accurate ovulation window and sure enough we found out today we are pregnant! If you’re TTC this is your app!!!! (and PreMom app with their BBT, was a huge help).
Ok
by altdancer on 2018/03/26 15:36
I have been using several period tracker apps as I have been considering switching and am trying to find the one that is best for me. One thing that I would love to see change is more personalized content. More specifically, I am trying to avoid pregnancy. In my health profile I have selected never when it asks about when we will think about it. That may change, but it is where we are right now. We even just terminated a pregnancy, so it is definitely not on the table. So why does the app show me things every day about fertility and trying to conceive? The poll a few days back was “have you told people you are TTC?” We’re not. That is what it says in my health profile. So my suggestion would be to tailor content to the goals listed in our profiles. Also, not a big community person, so it is annoying that everyday the little red dot is there alerting me to new content even though I have not subscribed to any groups.
Accurate & Helpful!
by Kipperly on 2017/11/30 08:10
After coming off BC, I began using this app frequently to attempt to find a pattern in my irregular period. Although it did take a bit of time for Glow to get the estimations correct (which seems expected), for months now my period has been arriving the exact day Glow predicts. The estimated dates of ovulation match up with my symptoms as well and help you you in TTC or avoiding pregnancy. Once my boyfriend and I did began TTC, the ovulation predictions were successful in us conceiving, but we did lose our baby. Glow was quite quick afterwards to correctly predict my period again. We’re giving our next go some time, but in the meantime, the Glow community is a wonderful place to go for support, advice or just some fun. I also love that I can track daily symptoms, moods, CM, medications, flow and so much more. Glow is a super simple app to use and I personally find it extremely helpful.
Love this app
by P.Sherman42wallabyWay on 2017/10/03 18:13
So not only does this app track your period but it also predicts your fertile window and when you ovulate. This app is actually pretty smart because my other 2 apps predicted my period 9 days before I actually got it but Glow was right on point with prediction and I wasn’t quite sure when I ovulated this month and it helped pick a date on when I should have based on my info I had logged. The best part about this app is the community. Most apps just log everything this app has a forum of different pages you can join and chit chat with other ladies, especially if your going through something you feel like you can’t talk to anyone about chances are someone on here has gone through it. I love it and it’s a nice escape from facebook.
Not what it used to be
by Kata478536 on 2020/08/01 09:56
I’ve used glow for many years now. While TTC our now 2 year old daughter, I noticed the layout starting to change and I didn’t love it but it worked. Now that we’re TTC again and I’m using the app more, I’m disappointed. The app is so slow when just wanting to symptoms to your calendar or edit a period. I feel like there are too many “bells and whistles” that weigh this app down. Personal, I just want the calendar, not the message boards and community portion. For me, I’d prefer an option to have the calendar on the main page upon opening the app and a separate button along the bottom or something to access things like blog posts, community forums, etc. I loved using community forums/message boards on another site while TTC the first time and it would have been cool to have it through an app like this, but the layout on Glow now is so messy in my opinion and so slow. They need clean it up and find a way to make it move faster.
Pros and Cons
by Diamond Snowflakes on 2018/04/28 12:46
I love this app and it’s accuracy with period tracking. It’s always somewhere within 24 hours of its predicted start date. I do have two pretty big irritations though. For one, it’s been a lot more cluttered and difficult to navigate, more so since the update. I have to go all over the place just to find what I’m looking for. It’s not streamlined at all. Another thing, I personally have no interest in the community aspect of it, but it too promoted. I’m not crazy about getting notifications on what’s going on with the community. I’m just trying to track my monthly cycle. It’s probably nice to have for other people who feel desperate for answers, but it gets such a prominent place in the app, adding to the complication and clutter. For keeping track of symptoms and all the little things that are indicators of where you’re at in your cycle and adjusting accordingly for accuracy though, this app is top notch.
Accurate but too much Community
by Courtc3 on 2020/05/19 17:55
The fertility tracking was accurate - I got pregnant after only three months of trying - and I really liked the functionality of adding pictures of multiple ovulation tests so you could compare side-by-side. The biggest downside of this app for me is the Community section. I with there was a way to hide it (if there is, it’s not obvious to me). Everything the app posts is flooded with women posting - not commenting on the article, etc., but posting photos of their pregnancy tests. It gets annoying when that’s all you see. It’s also unsettling for someone who’s TTC with a first baby to read about women who’ve tried for YEARS with no luck. I know we all need support, but it would be better to make the community section something users seek out vs putting it at the front and center of everything, so we can choose what comments and topics we see.
I’m not the reviewing type!
by MissyCDai on 2020/08/12 18:09
This app’s purpose has helped me tremendously in regards to trying to conceive. It is extremely accurate as to when my period starts, but is always off in my ovulation day. But it does help with tracking my symptoms, logging my moods, and recording any changes my body goes through daily. After a loss, my body has changed drastically with my cycle, so the ability to have all my information in one easy to find spot is amazing. I also enjoy that I can connect with my husband so he can log items, too. We’re working on baby #1 and we’re excited that Glow (along with my ob/gyn) is helping us through this process. It’s comforting knowing I can turn to this app and find many groups of people who are in similar boats who can offer advice, and share their stories, and offer motivation. Great app!
Just one little thing!
by headquarterss on 2017/10/17 19:28
If I'm in the middle of reading someone's comment or post on the Community portion of your app, sometimes I read something there that I want to check with my own calendar. So I go to "Home" to check out my calendar, but when I click back on "Community" it starts me from the top of the community page, and not the post I was just on. It would be really great if you added the ability to click between Home and Community without losing your place of what you were reading within the community posts! If I want to reference my own calendar, then I have to click on Community and scroll, scroll, scroll until I can find the post I was looking at originally! Kind of like if you're on Instagram and you switch btw your likes and home page, that would be great!! Thank you!
Almost accurate
by Dyneohmite on 2018/05/08 16:28
I am currently a mother of one beautiful little girl. We’re in the process of figuring out cycles and timing for #2. I only ever used Ovia for my first, and it took us nearly a year to conceive. I understand it takes more than doing whatever an app says to make a baby but it was my first, and I never thought it’d be that hard to get pregnant! Fast forward, I’m now using Clue, Ovia and Glow, they’re all 3 getting the same information, as their programming allows, and Glow is by far the most accurate in its predictions and adapting to MY body based off of the information I input. My only complaint is the app sends excessive notifications daily, but, it’s thorough and I’m sure not going to delete it for that! Give it a shot! Good luck makin babies!
Game-changer! Fantastic for Tracking cycles, symptoms, more options would be even better!
by spazzymcgee45 on 2018/08/29 21:24
Just wish there were even more options for customizing and tracking things like symptoms. I think it would be good to add physical symptoms such as “muscle tension,” “muscle cramping,” “leak/incontinence,” etc. cause I think quite a lot of women may deal with those symptoms, especially around menstruation. Like, if I could create my own customized variables to track, such as inserting/taking out nuvaring, having had an episode of enuresis during the night, etc., that would be amazing. Also, for tracking sex, if there was a way to select “multiple sessions” but still be able to track birth control methods, position, orgasm, that would be great too.
Constant pressure to go Premium
by mrs.bre on 2019/09/29 12:03
I’ve used this app for about two and a half years. I’ve found it to be easy to use and helpful. At different time I liked the offered community and I like being able to customize my screen. I will say that some of the this they preview on my screen that I didn’t chose to click into (like I would a group) can be pretty raunchy or even traumatic, considering a variety of women’s experiences with abuse and relational difficulties. I’m not usually thrilled with that. BUT my most frustrated complaint is how the app changed in the last year or so. I was pregnant from March-December last year, and regained my need for the app recently so upon returning, everywhere I click its a push to use the premium, paid version of the app. I feel like I can barely click anywhere. It’s overwhelming and pushy. I just want the tracker!
I would give it ZERO stars if I could.

Now let me explain that the period tracking, ovulation tracking, pregnancy tracker have been decent. Not super significant but does the job. However, when it comes to the “Glow Community,” it is utterly and completely pathetic. There are forums in which topics are discussed. The issue I have is that I have had my account suspended now TWICE for nothing more than the fact that I “hurt someone’s feelings” with my opinion in an OPINION BASED FORUM. I have not disobey they rules by any means. I don’t even get a notification of suspension. I just attempt to make a comment and am told “your account has been suspended”. It’s been brought to my attention that those who disagree with your opinion are able to report that you have hurt their feelings and you are immediately suspended. It doesn’t make sense to have an opinion based forum in which only SOME opinions are welcome as long as they fit along with the apps majority. Just disgusting.
Starting over
by Rosebud89 on 2017/11/08 12:55
I was using glow to track my cycles for 7 months and became pregnant. I then starting using glow nurture. I deleted glow because I wasn’t going to use it to track my cycles. Unfortunately I had a miscarriage at 9 weeks. I turned off all email notifications and let glow nurture know about the miscarriage since it was and still is too painful. Well I just got my First period after my MC and am back on glow (it remembered my info). I am still receiving notifications of pregnancy in chat rooms I was on in glow nurture. (Which I have deleted) I feel glow should give the same respect and when you log about a MC they should stop sending you reminders and notifications from glow nurture about how far along I am and notifications from the pregnancy chat rooms I was in before.
Easy and valid
by Bsouthe1 on 2019/03/28 01:34
Free and easy to use. I initially started to chart my own ovulation using strips, and normally Glow is always right on target with the ovulation predictions. It’s also been pretty spot on with my period predictions, only off by maybe a day. This has also probably been because I had been consistently measuring and reporting these things myself for a few months at first, but whenever I read a Glow prediction and then followed through with an ovulation test or would anticipate my period, ifs all been very close, If not exact. I find this to be an easy to use, valid method for charting and predicting your cycle whether it be trying to conceive or trying to avoid. Thank you Glow!
😍 This app is amazing/ wish somethings were free.
by Rainkyri on 2019/05/20 11:01
This app is amazing. I love the design of it and also how easy it is to use. Tracking my period/ Ovulation My first months ovulation was off but that was due to me not knowing my cycle but now the app is pretty spot on. Now I know that I have a longer cycle than the average. I love that I am becoming more aware of my body. Its amazing to feel and see body changes during your cycle. The community I love the community. I am TTC-ing and find that having advice from other women is encouraging. Its almost like a sex aid class where you find out that we all experience the close to or the same symptoms during our periods and ovulation. Be careful for what groups you join. The relationship groups can be very draining and might require you to be Dr. Phil Because the women/teenagers want a lot of advice for toxic relationships. That is not the apps fault. You can always exit a group. Prime I don’t mind that you have to pay for the app. Its just that I wish predictions were free. Dead Developer, May you please make an option to turn off notifications for a specific comment. I don’t want to see who replies each time to a comment that I posted on. Its annoying.
They’ll charge your debit/credit card for a free trial without your permission
by Chy Johnson on 2017/10/02 05:52
Your app charged me for a free trial that wasn’t even over yet because it had just started 2 days before my iTunes account went on lock because my card was charged without my permission from you guys now I don’t know what the issue is I have reached out to you guys through email 4 times now and no one ever responds I can no longer download apps or update apps because my account is locked until I pay $7.99 for a free trial please get back to me because I am not gonna pay you guys for a free trial that wasn’t even over yet before you guys charged my debit card without my permission now I am so extra and petty that I’ll bring this to any News and even the police because I’m not gonna let you guys trick me for my money so like I said someone needs to get back to me soon because I’m growing very impatient and I wanna go to the police over this I don’t care if it’s only $7.99
Disappointed
by t.g.ft.h on 2019/10/06 14:15
I’m disappointed with this app. I’ve had it for years, mostly to keep track of my ovulation period, but I’ve been recently diagnosed with PMDD and PCOS so I’m trying to keep a better record of my symptoms. I was planning to log in everyday so I could better visualize the changes of my symptoms. I allowed glow to send me notifications and they send notifications multiple times a day about “sales” that they’re having. I don’t think it’s worth my money... I don’t plan on purchasing an app service. STOP with the daily sales! Once in a while, ok, but every single day? It’s extremely annoying. However, if you don’t spend money, you can’t see your analysis. And I’m not asking for predictions of my symptoms, but just an analysis of month to month. It’s useless to log in everyday if you don’t spend money. I’m turning off my notifications again as I realized the log ins are useless.
Educated but discouraged
by Helimom2015 on 2019/03/01 03:11
This app is very helpful to learn about your body, your cycle and yourself. The ability to join and leave appropriate groups is wonderful. The complaint I have is that the app inundated me with how and why and when I should consider IVF. After trying to conceive for almost a year now, I left certain community groups to avoid having to see success stories of others while I’m unable to conceive....only to be reminded daily by the app itself that I’m not conceiving. Then it goes on to suggest that I update to the premium service and then various IVF options. I already know that’s an option, but to have the daily reminders is a little debilitating in my venture. Perhaps this app could be altered to have an optional section without pushy “suggestions/notifications” that remind me daily of my inability to conceive.
Pretty good :)
by Crd5q on 2018/06/08 12:00
Good fertility tracking app; wish I could opt out of the "community" feature. I have no interest in having a mini Babycenter on my phone. I unchecked everything I could but still get red dots for "community notifications" and they bug me. App is a big crowded but I get that many women using these want to track as much info as possible. I'm not a huge technophile and prefer a more basic setup but app is user-friendly enough that I keep up with it. I wish the layout were a little simpler though. I wish I could find my temp chart more easily. But out of 4-5 apps that I downloaded with the idea of tracking period dates and daily temperature Glow is the one I ended up using. One cool feature would be to display days until you can take a pregnancy test.
Too much clutter
by Blairomie on 2018/10/18 16:14
I used Glow to conceive my first son in 2014. We even paid the $50/month to use the GlowFirst function. Now that I’m ready for another baby, i thought I’d use the app again. Big mistake. It’s basically a huge chat room for bored women. There are over 4K comments on a wedding dress post. It’s a PREGNANCY planning app. Not sure why anyone TTC would purchase (and brag) about paying full price for a tight fitting dress. I mean, you’re PLANNING to gain baby weight. The whole thing is just annoying. I feel like i’m reading the babycenter birth boards. It’s obnoxious because i am now involved in a medical trial and have only the next 21 months to conceive, deliver and breastfeed before i have to get back on endocrine therapy after having breast cancer. I expected to come back here and find the useable app i used last time. Instead I’m considering going to an actual fertility specialist because honestly, a transvaginal ultrasound sounds better than dealing with this overstuffed and basically useless app. Also, there is a 12+ rating on the app. A reviewer commented this is MUCH to mature for a 12 year old. Someone from the Glow team responded that the apps are “generally” for 17+ Yet, i have a screenshot from today and the App Store lists the app as 12+ Women are discussing x-rated stuff that even at 37, i don’t want to hear (and I’m not a prude). This app has gone WAAAAAYYYYYY downhill.
Premium is a money scheme!
by IreneIscream on 2019/11/03 17:47
They advertise that you can spin a wheel every so often to get discounts. Well I ended up getting 10/15% off and I considered the purchase. When I thought I was getting a better deal I went ahead and clicked buy thinking it would take me to the total cost or a preview before the transaction. It did not! They immediately charged me 68$ and I didn’t even get my discount. To make things worse I didn’t even get premium access for a week after the purchase. I’ve contacted them over 5 times now in the last month and a half about my discount not being applied and my subscription being late. And even with the promise of excellent customer service with prime membership there has been no reply. This just proves all they care about is money in their hands and not the satisfaction of the customer nor the product they are giving. Please take this into consideration when using this app.
BIASED ADMINS & GLOW DOES NOTHING ABOUT IT
by ttcmomma on 2019/03/17 03:24
The community aspect of this app is baffling. & Glow absolutely does not care. I’ve seen comments that do not break any community guidelines get deleted simply because a biased admin does not agree with what the comment said. Multiple users have gotten suspended for speaking up about it, including myself. Users who bring legitimate concerns to the attention of an admin in the group have gotten suspended by that same admin simply because they either don’t want to deal with it or just don’t care. You claim to be a supportive community but clearly some of your Admins are not and you refuse to do anything about it. Don’t bother replying with a generic developer response. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Watch me get banned from this app just for saying this. Goes to show the corruption. ✌🏼 @ developer response, so you have nothing to say about everything else I mentioned? Btw, one of the posts didn’t break any rules actually but you won’t do anything about that. I could name a few users I’ve personally talked to who’ve been banned for no reason. They didn’t break any guidelines. Stop beating around the bush and only responding to one part of this review. Respond to the whole thing. I’m not the only one who’s noticed this issue. Some of your Admins are biased and some suspend people for absolutely no reason. Like I said, do something about it. 🙄
Love the app but please return to the original view
by Nicolerenee2222 on 2018/07/11 23:34
I love this app and I believe I am one of the earliest users of it. It helped me get pregnant in 2014 with my first child. I feel like it is way more accurate than other apps, even fertility fan. That being said, I am not a fan of the update as I cannot open the app and immediately see my calendar. I do not like that I have to click an extra button to see it and then it is hard to read. It was so much easier with the original view. Not sure why the change but it doesn’t work. Please return to the original view. That is the only reason for the missing star. Other fertility apps take you straight to your calendar as the first thing you see. There’s a reason for that.
Excellent app until now...
by anonymoushopeful on 2017/12/14 03:42
I have been using this app for almost a year to track my period and ovulation. It has been a GREAT resource and tracking app until now. I purchased the iPhone X and when I attempted to log into my account, the app wouldn’t load. I contacted them via their email and after following a few suggested actions- I am still waiting for my information to be recovered. I have removed the app from my old phone, logged out, deleted and re loaded the app, turned my phone off and on, updated my iOS, Re synched my account....and still nothing. My information still exists but my period tracker and ovulation is on some default. I have emailed their customer service yet again in hopes they will resolve this issue sooner than later! I am at their mercy as I trusted this app with my information and never kept another record. If they resolve this major glitch, I again would recommend this site but recommend you keep a backup log. Update: as of today they have recovered my logs! I must say their customer service was always in contact with me and luckily were able to restore my account. I hope to those of you this is happening to reach out and give them a chance.
Needs Updates, Frustrating App
by SherriAE on 2019/02/05 13:45
I have been using this app, along with a few others for 1 year. I find Glow to be the worst ovulation tracker, as there is no option to manually mark ovulation. When I initially started tracking my periods after I stopped BC, I had 40+ day cycles and a few months in, learned I was not ovulating. I started tracking BBT and using ovulation strips & taking a few supplements, which have shortened my cycles to 27-30 days. I have been ovulating past 4 cycles. Glow still always predicts the 40 days even though I log literally everything. I always input the Positive ovulation tests and have great temp shifts. The algorithm still says I didnt ovulate yet. I did! Very frustrating. Glow needs to add in an option to manually mark ovulation when this occurs. There are better tracking apps out there
No longer free
by cjs_3 on 2019/02/11 22:17
So, I had this app for a year and I only got it because it was free. Today I received a notification saying I had three options to choose from because it is no longer free. Then if you don’t want to pay then you have to go into settings and manage it that way, instead of just deleting the app because you will be charged to your account. This is in very small print at the bottom. I don’t mind paying a reasonable price for an app, but when you try and trick the buyers and make them go into their settings just to get rid of it or you’ll charge them, in my opinion it’s absurd. People should be able to just delete an app without being charged. Just want people to know what they’re getting into. Other than that the app was pretty accurate, but because of poor business strategy I’m giving a two star review.
Best app
by Emleejass on 2020/01/25 20:38
I started out with Eve then went on with Glow where my journey began as i was TTC. This app was so helpful every step of the way. 2019 was a trying year and this app made things easy for me and the women on the community can be a bit harsh sometimes but for the most part i love how it brings women together...giving each other a boost and telling them not to give up. The stories on here are amazing. This app gave me tips...great information on it. The best part is that after a year, this app helped me get my positive....the women on there reminded me not to lose hope and I’m glad i didn’t. I now move on the Nuture. I have never had a problem with these apps.
Great basic period tracker
by Neen_Machine on 2018/04/08 21:24
I thought this app was fantastic before I got pregnant. Now after a miscarriage I am moving to a different app. 1) They have a companion pregnancy app, which I was super excited about. You use the same login... but they don’t port any of your data, which seems crazy to me. I had to enter the date of my LMP, average cycle length, ovulation date, etc. which really annoyed me considering they already have all of this information. 2) More importantly, after I miscarried the user experience was just really bad. It keeps those dates marked as “pregnant” which is tough emotionally (but I could handle it), but more troublesome is that my listed average cycle length has gotten longer. My pregnancy/miscarriage should not have added any length to my average cycle (all cycles prior to my miscarriage were ~32 days and now my cycle length is 36 days). This is a pretty fatal flaw in their algorithm IMO. If I had been several months pregnant instead of several week, would my average cycle have been weeks longer?! I may use this to continue tracking my period but honestly I probably won’t. I also like that with other apps you can see your cycle days throughout the cycle without manually counting each time to see which cycle day you ovulated on, etc.
Updated review
by MG171586 on 2018/02/23 15:34
I recently left a review after my history had been erased with an upgrade which of course is extremely disappointing and worrying as this is my only way of tracking. I deleted the app and reinstalled it and it all came back. Not sure if that’s supposed to happen but I’m glad I did it. I’m pretty happy with the app otherwise, I like that it has optional features catering to different stages for different women. I was pretty upset when my history was gone but wanted to leave a better review after it had been resolved. The developer did respond but I happened to get it back on my own. Not sure how well it’s tracking fertility as I am not actively trying to get pregnant again. Will update when I do!
Keep taking features away
by Colorlover23 on 2019/10/03 06:53
Glow was great, and user friendly, gave lots of info, and made everything easy to access, but there was a recent update where they took away a ton of information and want you to pay for premium now. In particular the “average cycle day” was super helpful for helping me to make sure my cycles stay regular, but now it’s super inconvenient because I have to scroll back through past months and count days. Almost every feature except for the date my period is due and my ovulation date have been changed or taken away, it’s frustrating and I haven’t found another app that’s better, yet. I just think it’s rude and stupid to take away an app feature and then try to charge someone for that feature, if they want it back, glow will never get any money from me, for that reason alone.
Great app, but..
by Amethyst_24 on 2019/01/02 14:15
I downloaded this app and really loved how accurate and user-friendly it was. However, I vehemently agree with other reviewers: the majority of the community is crass and immature. I found anything BUT support in the community, all because I was pro-life. Quite the opposite, I was insulted and harassed for my beliefs. My account was even suspended for “stirring up dissension,” when I was only expressing what I believed. I didn’t appreciate the heavy censoring on pro-life posts, when others could discuss abortion positively without being censored. I eventually deleted the app and found one I liked better. Personally, I get too emotionally invested in any social platform I use, so it’s best for me to use an app that has no community. ☺️ Other than that mentioned above, this app worked really well!
Not happy about update
by gabeyho on 2018/04/14 17:27
The new update includes a scrolling feed of which the user has no content control. Now I have to involuntarily see community posts with foul language and lewd photos. I like this app for tracking and have been using it for years, but the community is vulgar. I have no desire to see pictures of peoples backsides in their underwear, or of their trip to Jamaica and the discussion of how much they did it with their boyfriend. I have always just ignored the community but if they’re going to start forcing me to see hi-lighted community posts and photos I think I’m done here. Thanks but no thanks. I will not be recommending this to anyone else from now on until they change this feature.
