There are several apps geared up for women, mostly because many of the things they do are the opposite of what their male counterparts require. Technology has made it possible for women to track and manage certain things and even share their experiences.
If you struggle with monitoring your birth control pill or patch, then this app shouldn’t be missing in your phone. myPill notifies you of the time you need to take or replace your contraceptives, as well as predict your next period, track your symptoms, and update you about the next checkup with your doctor. The app’s alarm goes off in a unique fashion and constantly sends you notifications about your next pill or if you’ve not taken your contraceptive.
As a woman, your urge to go the toilet may be frequent, given that you have got a small bladder. Plus, you may have to sit on the toilet or squat even when answering to the short call of nature, unlike men who only need to unzip and finish their business. SitOrSquat touts itself as an app which helps you find nearby toilet facilities and informs you if the facility is clean, not-so-pleasant, or unpleasant.
Women aren’t as physically strong as their male counterparts, in that they may be unable to defend themselves when they’re raped or attacked. So with the Companion mobile app, women can safely move around town feeling secure. In essence, the app works by selecting certain contacts from your phone and notifying them of your whereabouts through a live map. You need to respond to alerts, and if you fail to do so, your contacts are notified of the imminent danger you’re facing. It also features police and other emergency contacts that can be handy in times of need.
The Bottom Line
These apps are made for both iOS and Android. Other apps you can install on your phone include Clue, Workout for Women, and Clementine.
