Manage your period better

Cycles allows you to track your period. You can view your upcoming cycles, as well as look at ones from the past, and record relevant information.

More than a fertility app

Cycles is a handy app that shows that processing detailed information about your cycle doesn’t need to be complicated.

Cycles goes beyond a fertility app and provides you with information about ovulation.  For those who are more health-conscious and curious about tracking their periods, this app can be just what you need.

One of the first aspects to strike you about the app is how easy it is to use. This even trickles down to design, with the cycle cleverly represented by a circle and the straightforward insights and notes sections. Although other apps such as Eve and Flo can track your period, the fact that Cycles allows you to collect a larger array of data means its accuracy is enhanced.

An important factor in period tracking apps is to be able to use them on the go without announcing what you’re doing. The neutral and fuss-free design of this app makes it discreet, so there’s no issue checking it at your desk or during your commute. The developers have also put thought into keeping your personal data secure. Cycles requires a password or Touch ID to open.

Where this app falls short is the fact that alerts or reminders and sharing details with a partner are premium features. For many, the reminder about an upcoming period or fertile phase is the exact convenience the app should provide in a busy life.

If your period cycle is irregular, Cycles might not be for you. When you change the start date of your period, it affects all data in the past, meaning you won’t be able to look back and track it. The option to share with your partner is a useful tool for fertility planning; however, data does not sync correctly in some instances.

Where can you run this program?

It’s available on iOS 12.0 or later.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. You can have the same no-nonsense design but with a range of helpful reminders by using Clue.

Our take

Cycles does a good job of gathering the data it needs and using it to present information in a clear and useful way.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you’re looking for an app that can track data about your cycles, Cycles is a rather good choice.
