Ratings and Reviews
Overall, Easy App to Track Necessities
Overall, I enjoy this app. I downloaded a few the night I brought my son home. Glow Baby is the one I decided to keep, with how easy it was to leave the app open and click on the timers for tracking feedings. It’s just as easy to track diapers as well, and I’ve been happy using the weight feature to track our doctor’s appointment weights. I think my favorite piece (over easy feeding tracking), are the tidbits of advice that pop up as you’re using the app. The articles and forum are also positive places to read and connect with other users. The only downsides to me, are that you can’t edit anything once you’ve clicked saved. I’ve had a few feedings where my son has been done.... and then a couple moments later decided to go back for round 2, the after-dinner snack. It would have been nice just to tack that into the original but alas, it’s not possible. Also, the top of the app are advertisements and soliciting for “memories” to be added. It’s a huge chunk of the space and I would prefer if I could make it go away since I don’t use memories.
Tracking with a lot of clutter
I enjoyed this app at first. I even bought the premium subscription while I was still pregnant. Tracking works well, and when the watch app works properly, it’s handy. BUT... they keep adding silly features that get in the way. The “AR” photo book seems gimmicky and I wouldn’t trust it to work reliably. They are always sending notifications about silly posts in the forums... Now the stories! So much clutter and nonsense! It’s too bad because I like the tracking features and use them pretty religiously.
I’ve been trying some other more streamlined trackers, and currently like Huckleberry because we’re in the throes of sorting out nap time and it helps guesstimate when the next nap should be. (And it’s not such a train wreck when I open it up!)
Apple Watch app... ugh. Bit of a let down. First: It’s easy to accidentally lose the reading. In the phone app you can leave the timer and it keeps running, but on the watch, if you hit back it cancels it. So many lost sleep tracks! Worse: it displays the times differently than the phone and makes me do math to estimate when the last nap ended! For some reason they tell you when the last one started and how long it was - but not in minutes, in hours! E.g. 1:25pm, 1.4 hours long. So it ended.... errr... how many minutes is .4 hours? 20 something? This is not kind to users who are not sleeping well!!
Developer Response ,
Hi there! Thanks for this feedback. We appreciate your comments about the sleep timer inside the watch, 1.4 hours might be confusing, I will send your message to our product and design team, I truly think they will solve the concern! Your suggestions are valuable to us, if you got further comments, please email us at email@example.com. It will help us a lot! And about the tracking feature, thanks for liking it! We are always trying to do better. If you could give us another chance, we will do anything to make this a five star experience again!
My preferred baby logging app
I’ve used this app for both my kids now, and also for my niece when I was caring for her as an infant. In that instance it was particularly helpful because my sister also used Glow and we were able to share information. Overall I am happy with the app, but there are a few caveats. They are really insistent on trying to get you to pay for the upgraded version. I understand why, but it’s pretty obnoxious and has gotten worse over time. Also, the “articles” are consistently terrible. Access to more is one of the “perks” of paying, which isn’t appealing to me. Some are so misleading or patently false that it makes me concerned for others reading them who might not know better. I don’t like the “community” aspect, but that’s easy enough to avoid. That said, it’s quite good at keeping track of all the things that my brain just can’t remember. I especially like the solids tracking because my daughter has food intolerances, it’s the only part that has me considering paying for the full version. I also appreciate the growth charts and generally being able to keep all of the information in one place. I use this app constantly and recommend it.
