Bug fixes, mostly on the Apple Watch app
Ratings and Reviews
On my SuperMom tool-belt!
I have been using the Baby Connect app for nearly 7 years now, through 3 kids. I have tested out other baby tracking apps along the way, particularly when a new baby is born and I’m back into using the app multiple times daily. None other has this clean of an interface, that’s intuitive and user friendly, but still with more options than you could ever ask for. They have consistently improved the app through the years and respond to issues. I have seen them implement improvements, I’ve personally suggested. It’s organized well, with options to reorganize to prioritize the features you use. You can customize units and how you want certain things tracked and set alarms. I have profiles for all 4 of my kids, plus my husband and I so that when someone gets sick, I can log and set reminders for symptoms, temperatures and medications. I mainly track nursing and sleep with my babies, and diapers only as newborn and when there are anomalies. I have recommended this app to mom-friends and will keep it on my phone even past the baby stage because it’s a helpful tool for me when I’m playing Dr. Mom. I can only assume other apps are getting reviews because they’re sponsored and pushing for them. Baby Connect remains the reliable workhorse though and others don’t stand up in ease of use and functionality.
Love this app, but one wish!
I have used and am using this app with my two kiddos. I love how easy it is to use and how customizable the features are. That is so amazingly brilliant! The most powerful feature for me is the timeline and graph feature, because it shows me my child’s progress when I’m in the thick of it, and frustrated about the lack of progress.
One thing I would like to ask for, is on the graphs section, I’d love to see “nighttime sleep” and “daytime sleep” buttons in addition to “total sleep”. So yes, I’m asking for total hours slept at night, average length of sleep at night, # of sleeps at night, and the whole thing again for daytime sleep. It sounds like a lot to ask for, but with such a sophisticated software already, I’m sure it can happen! I’ll buy it again!
PS. On the days, weeks, month features on the graph feature, I don’t find it helpful to have the totals of whatever for that week or month, but would find it ever so much more meaningful it it was the average of that month’s whatever.
The phone app and website (which is free and looks just fine in mobile view on Safari, by the way, so your occasional caregivers can access it that way without paying for the expensive app) are AMAZING. This tool has every single thing I could ever think to record about my child's life. It takes some practice to learn how to customize the app to fit your needs, and the data export process could use a little work (for instance, there's no way to bulk export ALL data at once), but this app has already been worth the money as I care for my 10 day-old.
One of the primary reasons I bought this app was due to the promise of Apple Watch compatibility. While it does have a Watch App, it's pretty crappy. I mean, in theory it's great, but when it does actually load (which is rare), it takes forever and is actually faster to find my phone, launch the app, and log it rather than to try to go through my Apple Watch to log anything. (And my Watch works just fine on other apps so I don't think it has anything to do with my Watch's connection.) Once this company figures out how to make the Watch app actually WORK and be a quick way to log something, I'll gladly come back and change this review to 5 stars.
