The best period tracker app, Clue has finally come to Android

The best period tracker app, Clue has finally come to Android
If you are a lady, and/or have a special woman in your life, it can be a good idea to keep track of your monthly cycle. There have been plenty of options to do so on Android, but the definitive best option for mobile phones has been stuck as an iPhone exclusive until now. Finally, Clue - by far the best period tracking app around (according to my wife) - has made its way to Android.

As we said, there are other options, but Clue beats them all by sheer amount of data it can track, the excellent design, and the charts that it provides based on your data. Basically, Clue makes other apps seem like they are half-assing their approach to this market need. Aside from the days when your period comes, Clue can track when you have sex, your mood on different days, cramping pain, and more. It presents this data on an easy to read calendar, along with predictions for when you'll be ovulating or when your next period will arrive. 

While Clue is a great app, it isn't quite perfect. There is no way to sync data, if you had been using the app on iOS, and the history for manually adding info is just one year, and some people have data longer than that. There is also no web version yet, though that is in the works. But, it is one of the best apps for the service, mostly because it is thoughtfully designed.

I am a woman. I use this site obviously. I sell cell phones for a living, so this helps me keep track of the industry. Also, I am not single.

It's a troll from Michael, phone arena has had enough of those pesky little android fanboi's that think android is the greatest creation ever and that apple should just die. I don't know what PA has done to be punished in such a way, the level of android fanboi is crazy high here and they act like little girls, so the best Period app coming to their beloved android is the ultimate troll Hahaha!!! Nice Michael!!!!

As an avid android user, I too am annoyed by the android fanboys. There a lot more of them here then Apple fans. They feel the need to attack anything that's not Google. And how come they always bring up Apple in practically every thread? lol And a subspecies of Fandroids are the Samsung fans. They blindly defend Samsung even if they sound asinine doing so.

Wow, that's a ridiculous theory. I wrote the article, because I assumed that there would be female readers or male readers who have women in their lives that might benefit from the info. Unfortunately, all I got was childish jokes and terrible puns (which is redundant, since all puns are awful).

To be fair, your article was somewhat content free. For example, it's an app that tracks a lot of highly personal data, such as a person's sex life, when they might be trying to conceive a child, etc. and you have no mention of data privacy. The company's policy is vague, as it doesn't say what "usage data" is. Also, for many people, not having a "sync" option is a huge plus. They probably don't want to be data mined and sold by Google and others. So I don't think there is any expectation of profound comments.
