We just got word that yet another personal boldily function has been molded by iPhone into an application to make your life better and better. This time the subject is a woman’s menstruation cycle. The app looks useful, thoughtfully planned and definately useful for women!
We figure that if the subject of a…well..bloody PERIOD is acceptable to the fine folks at Apple, then acceptance our our fabulous bladder-saving RunPee concept must be soon to find a home with the app committee folks at Apple.
Here is the Press Release all about Period Tracker. I should get this for myself.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
iPhones Used to Track Menstruation
Los Angeles, CA, June 25, 2009 – Most people use the iPhone to send
text messages and emails and browse the internet but women everywhere
have been using their iPhones to do something else – track their
Period Tracker, is a breakthrough app that has revolutionized the way
women keep track of their bodies and use their mobile phones. It has
a simple yet elegant layout with a one-touch button to log the start
of the user’s period and a countdown to the beginning of their next
one. A cute flower appears in the middle of the homepage when the app
predicts that the user is “fertile” and ovulating. And a month view
calendar helps the user see their cycles at a glance, while a notes
page allows the user to enter daily notes to indicate if they have a
“headache” or have been “intimate.”
“Period Tracker was the first app we ever came up with,” says Susan
Lee of GP Apps. “We had been married for several months when I got my
first iPhone and my husband brought up the crazy suggestion of making
an iPhone app. Having been married so recently, we were still
struggling to find a better way to keep track my periods, so we
decided to create Period Tracker.”
Period Tracker has been noticed by critics and platforms everywhere.
It has even recently won an award of a special grant by Adobe to bring
Period Tracker over to the Nokia smartphone platform.
“We love this app,” says David Lee. “We’ve spent so many months
developing it and improving it and we’re really proud of how it looks
and functions. We actually designed the entire app from scratch, at
times debating for days about how to make and keep the app the most
user-friendly and user-intuitive possible. We think it’s one of the
best apps out there.”
Period Tracker is currently available for the iPhone in the iTunes App
Store for just $1.99.
