Cycle Tracking and Baby Making with the My Days iPhone App

There seems to be an app for everything and My Days proves it. Instead of just being a basic calendar, the My Days iPhone app was made to help women track their period and ovulation. Created by Christian Albert Mueller, it uses color-coding and clean design layouts to let users literally count the days.

Design Features

Each of the calendars on My Days iPhone App utilizes a color-coded system so that users can easily see their fertility levels on any day of the month. This allows women who are trying to have children easily figure out the best days to conceive. Likewise, women who are uninterested in having children can use it for the fertility awareness method of birth control. The basic layout of the calendar makes it easy to view fertile days and read any notes from the previous month.

Adjusting for Individual Cycles

Initially, My Days uses a 28-day cycle to predict when a woman will be at her highest fertility levels. Over time, users can customize the app so that it reflects their personalized cycle. Women can take notes throughout the month regarding whether or not they took their birth control pills for the day or how their mood changes. The app even allows women to input their body weight on a daily basis and their basal body temperature. To ensure that women do not have any privacy concerns to deal with, the app can be password protected for heightened security.

Overall Impression

In general, the My Days iPhone app has an extremely straightforward design and a basic layout. It really is just a calendar. This app uses a fairly dull gray background that seems to bring the user’s mood level down just by looking at it. Fortunately, the coloring of the app really does not matter in regards to its functionality. It has a basic calendar, and icons that let users access the various features. To make sure that the app is attuned to the individual user, My Days also allows individuals to customize their user preferences.

Unlike some of the fertility apps available, My Days iPhone app is offered free of charge. It takes up very little memory on the iPhone and is extremely straight forward to use. This app’s only goal is to provide women with a way of tracking fertility, and it certainly succeeds at that goal. It could be a little prettier, but My Days is generally worth the memory space.
