Ratings and ReviewsSee All
This app is all around pretty amazing. The in-app integration of being able to talk to a health care educator is so convenient. I love absolutely everything about this app except for the fact that there’s no option to put you accidentally doubled up on your pill one day. Normally if you forget to take a pill, you put it into the app, and they tell you what to do, but if you accidentally double up, the app can’t help you, and you can’t log it, so you must reach out to one of their educators. If the app was to include this feature, I’d give it a 5 stars.
Now that we’ve got the negatives out of the way, let’s go over what’s great about this app. 1) The app allows you to require FaceID to open it, so someone being nosy can’t open your app with sensitive information. 2) They allow you to insert your individual birth control method, so the app is tailor fit to you. ( I’d suggest adding the option to add multiple methods being used at once, but the app still works great without it. ) 3) If you chose to use more than one app to track your periods and birth control, you can export the data out of the app easily. 4) They have a very compact and helpful FAQ integrated into the app. 5) The app is FREE, and there’s no free trial / pay to use features.
Good, but missing key elements
I’ve been using this app to track my birth control ring for the last five months or so. It is great to be able to log my physical stats every day so that I can figure out when I am likely to experience what on any given month. I also like that you can add your own symptoms to track, and personalize the tracking system to suit you.
The problem with this app is that, at least for the ring, it only works if you do everything right. There is no ability to tell it that you took the ring out for a bit, or that it fell out, so it has no way to know that it needs to give you advice or warn you that you might not be protected. It would be amazing to have a “Ring’s Out” button that would start a two hour timer or something so that if I want to take it out to have sex or go for a run or anything like that, then it will tell me when I need to get the ring back in. The app also needs to recognize that sometimes women will go four weeks with the same ring and then do a ring free week specifically to move their period, not skip it. Right now, if you leave the ring in for four weeks, it assumes that you need to start a new ring at the end of week 4, and there’s no option for still having a ring-free week.
Please update this app with features to make it helpful even when everything doesn’t happen completely “by the book”.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, thank you so much for your feedback and your request for the ability to create custom and/or more flexible birth control schedules within Spot On, specific to the ring. We are pleased to inform you that many users have requested this feature, and we are working on an update in the near future to incorporate this functionality. If you have any additional feedback you'd like to provide while we work on this feature, please feel free to email email@example.com. Thanks!
Love using this app! But slight improvements can make it better!
I began to use this app on the day I visited Planned Parenthood to start my first birth control method (pills).
This app literally keeps me on track by reminding me to take my pill everyday, the same time, and it keeps record of all the days you pressed “yes” if you took the pill for the day so that if you feel unsure, forgot, or must take two pills if you missed, you can check and proceed to take action to get back on track. They also have a feature where you can add any symptoms, feelings, or when you stated your period as of well as the flow to look back on to see any changes or differences.
I gave this app four stars because as a suggestion, this app can improve if it can have an option where people can make an account or not. My phone suddenly stopped working and the four month progress I had put time to keep track of my moods, my side effects, and my period is now gone. I can’t look back on those four months to compare it to a new pill I was switched to. I would really hate to lose all of the progress I have made in the app to keep track of everything again. Thank you!
