Whether you are a parent caring for your own child or a pediatrician, this growth charts app is for you! It allows you to track childrens' growth over time and display the data points on any of the included WHO and CDC growth charts. You can track height, weight, head circumference and BMI and determine the corresponding percentiles.
There is also a percentile calculator for quick percentile lookup in case you just want to know the percentile of today's measurements.
# Data Storage
You can add as many children and measurements to the built-in database as you like. The data is encrypted – if you have a passcode on your device – meaning it is secure should you lose the device.
The measurements are directly added to the growth chart PDFs. You can email these PDFs, print them out (if you have an AirPrint enabled printer nearby) or share them with other means provided by iOS, such as storing into your Dropbox or box.com. You can do the same with a spreadsheet file containing all this kids on your device, or one file per kid. Finally, there is an export option so you can transfer all your data to a different device of yours or a colleague.
Whether you're used to the metric system and have all data available in centimeter and kilogram or whether you're in the US and using imperial units, Charts has got you covered. You can switch the units you want to use right from the keyboard and these units will be saved as your preferred units. You can also change units from a dedicated list when viewing your child's measurements.

Ratings and Reviews
It is ok
I have been using it for years and went to go input my new sons info to compare against his 2 older sisters and noticed my app was gone. While I took my son to his peds appt yesterday my parents let my toddler use my iPad and she deleted the app. Reinstall it to find all data lost and the only way to back it up is via email. Now if only I knew she would get the iPad and that I needed to make sure I backed it up recently, if ever...should be standard to back it up or have it on a set schedule. I have my oldest daughters stats down as I found the app after her but have lost my toddlers 2 years worth of info.
A great free app for EASY charting
I started the tradition of marking my kids' height with my first daughter, but the thought occurred to me if we ever have a fire all the marks on the wall in our house would go up in flame and I'd have no backup. I tried other apps, but they were nothing like what I wanted. I love that I can use photos of my kids for each profile, and that I can send backup data easily to my email and many other apps. This app is easy to use I was able to put as many measurements for each of my three children as I wanted and see their percentiles and track their growth all the way up to my 17-year-old daughter. I highly recommend this app.
Special needs kids left out again...
I really wish these types of apps had proper charts for kids with special needs (e.g. Down syndrome, cerbal palsy, etc). These kids have special growth considerations because of their disabilities and typical growth charts have them all as failing to thrive because they just fall right off the chart.
