Ratings and Reviews
I love this app and I really enjoy not having to worry about remembering when it's time to change. I am in high school so it's especially helpful when you're trying to worry about a million other things. The only concern/comment I have it that that timer stops when you close the app. This majorly drains your battery.
I only gave it a 5 ⭐️ so maybe people would actually be able to see this. This app started off good. Alerted you when you need to change, but then it stopped working. I would set the timer, then I'd check on it every so often and see that it had stopped and restarted itself. So I deleted it. Waste of phone space.
Tampon timer rating
I didn't really like it because it doesn't actually alert you. You have to go into the app to see if the timers done. In away that's good so the people around you don't know that your on your period if your not around your phone when the timer rings. But there's also really no point if you have to go into the app to see if the timers done because the whole purpose is so you don't forget your tampons still in.
