Though Planned Parenthood is currently under serious attack, the company continues to focus on what matters: forging ahead in their commitment to helping women (and men) across the nation with a number of exceptional health services, both in the clinics and out.
Their latest offering? Spot On, a personalized period tracking app that is focused on educating and supporting users regardless of their family planning needs, birth control methods or sexual orientation. Unlike most period tracking apps, Spot On is free and focuses on birth control instead of fertility tracking and ovulation. Its design ensures that women who are trying to conceive will find it as helpful and easy to use as women who aren’t.
Why we love it: Just as every woman is different, so are her periods and birth control methods (including a lack thereof). The app allows for easy personalization (through emojis!) and responds with information that is useful to the user right up front — without assumptions and judgements. Those on the pill (for hormonal regulation, pregnancy prevention or something else) may receive a reminder to take it while someone who is on nothing at all can receive more information about body changes after entering their specific information. The result? Personalized statistics that help you to know and understand your body better.
