I currently have three pregnancy-related apps on my phone. I wanted to show you this so I had to google “how to get screenshots of your droid” to learn how and apparently it’s not a simple app and it involved a guide and YouTube video. BECAUSE DROID USERS ARE SMART NERDS AND ENJOY A CHALLENGE, MOTHER FUCKER. Anyway, so apparently it was WAY more steps than I was willing to take. Droid Developers, if you’re reading this, get on that shit. I am tired of gloating, hipster iPhone users. Thanks. Ahem… where was I?
Oh yeah, preggo apps.
I have one called My Days which is more of a family planning/period tracker calendar tool. It has so many awesome features that really help when you have no idea how to do that shit. You can set your cycle, input when it begins and ends, keep track of when you had sex, make notes, it’s very comprehensive. Awesome fact I didn’t know until I started writing this blog, it was developed by a guy who promised his wife to develop something awesome for her to use on her android phone. Awww factor = 10
Mom 2 Be is a countdown app/widget that calculates from your estimated conception date, gives you an estimated due date (I am not a big fan of due dates people, too many look at it as an expiration date when it’s nothing more than an ESTIMATE.) your pregnancy age, time remaining, approximate weight, length, and expected zodiac sign. It has a “tips” section that tells you a little about what happens during the week your on and a journal feature so you can make notes. It also has a widget that gives you a quick view of progress. I like it because it’s small and concise.
My favorite though, has to be Pregnancy Assistant. This app and widget will count from your expected due date or from the first day of your last period using an estimation for the average ovulation according to your cycle. It has two categories, Your Child and Your Pregnancy and gives all of the average estimations, tips, details, count downs and dates, but also pictures, on the app and the widget. For some reason, that makes me like it most.
Unrelated… I can’t stand people who bitch about the word preggo. It’s easier to say and type when you are constantly talking about pregnancy. Like you smug bastards don’t use short or slang versions of words, assholes.
I think the best way to find good apps is by word of mouth, so do any of you guys have apps that you love? They don’t have to be pregnancy related, either. Here’s my top 5 for you.
