Another option for birth control!
When I was engaged, I was dreading the idea of using hormonal birth control. I thankfully found out about the Fertility Awareness Method and got this app in time for me to learn about it before officially using it to avoid pregnancy. It's a great app for people that are committed to charting their cycles and tracking their fertility. I like that this app is an organized and compact way to keep track of your cycle, but also does not tell you specifically what you can and can't do based on the data. As with most things, a user must still be informed and know what they are doing to use this app. In other words, the app does not interpret the information for you. Having said that, there are plenty of knowledge resources and tips within the app for people that are learning about tracking. There is also a community within the app that is a great resource of experience and information if questions should arise. My favorite thing about FAM is how empowered I felt when I learned more about what my own body was doing and understood what my cycle was saying. Kindara has helped me stay on top of my charting no matter if I am at home or traveling, because it is all right there on my phone. Highly recommend to people that are serious about learning the method and faithfully charting.
So I just recently got done reading the book “Taking charge or your fertility” and decided that I would start tracking. I have never been on birth control in my life and I’m 28 years old. My friends always ask me how I do it and I just say its not that hard to be extra careful. I never wanted birth control for the fact that it has so may side effects and chemicals in it. I don’t want that in my body. Anyways so after reading the book I stumbled upon Kindara it was the first app that showed up on the app store. So I figured I’d give it a try. I was using “Clue” and “Eve” before. There both great apps the only downside is they were never accurate for me. I have very irregular periods and they always seemed to just “guess” wrong. But now I want to take control and actually see whats going on and I love Kindara’s charts there easy to read. I also recently bought the Wink it should arrive in about 2 days and I have never been so excited about a thermometer before. For whatever reason I am. I have been using Kindara for about a month now and absolutely love it. Its super simple and easy yet very appealing and pretty looking and it has great features that work for all types or womens situations. I just love it. Thanks Kindara!
I love Kindara. The app is beautiful and functional. I'm TTA and was recently diagnosed with PCOS. I love that this app helps me keep track of my fertility AND helps me journal/ use toggle data that is also relevant to tracking with PCOS. Regarding the new premium subscription-- not thrilled. An on-going subscription verses a one time fee doesn't make sense for all the people who use this app to AVOID pregnancy and it kinda feels like a slight. I'm part of a community that is full of TTA people who will no longer be using Kindara (and are SERIOUSLY sad about it) because paying for an app,on subscription, that will be used endlessly and continually for a TTA person doesn't make financial sense where as someone trying to conceive finds they can pay for it for however long and then stop. See the problem? No other app comes close to Kindara in look or function (for TTA, CFH, or TTC) and no other app is as best suited for LEARNING how to use FAM (i.e. You place your own CL or mark your own peak verses an app doing it for you or trying to "predict" which isn't accurate). The new premium options are great, but weren't really necessary with unlimited custom data options. In fact, it might be a hindrance because some people feel the vaginal sensation options don't make sense. There was nothing wrong with the look before or the toggle data option. Overall, the 'upgraded' options are definitely not worth $4.99/mo.
So far, not bad
Well, I’m supposed to be on Cycle Day 9, but Kindara, for whatever reason, has decided that I’ve started a new cycle. There doesn’t seem to be a way for me to correct that, and I’m pretty disappointed. I’ve only been using the app for about a week, but I thought the app seemed promising at first. The look takes some getting used to, what with the little spotting bubbles floating all over, and the temperature dot dipping all over the place, but I think the overall layout is good and I was looking forward to using it. However, finding out some of the content is only for paying members is a bit of a bummer; this latest snafu with starting a new cycle randomly pretty much killed Kindara for me. Edited Dec 8: Ok, so it looks like the starting a new cycle thing was a glitch that affected a lot of users. After Kindara fixed it, I received an email and figured eh, why not give them a second shot. I redownloaded and have been comparing the app with two competing products. So far, I’d say Kindara is a strong forerunner. I like the way the chart is laid out, and how simple it is to add my information. My one remaining aggravation is that it seems vaginal sensation is only available to premium members, and that seems like an odd thing to have to pay for to me. (Wow, that’s a sentence I never expected to construct....)
Great app for natural family planning!!
I've been using the Kindara app for years and love it! I also purchased a Wink from the kickstarter and it's been a wonderful addition to my natural cycle charting routine... it makes it easy to test temperature first thing in the morning when you're groggy. It's clear they put a lot of thought and effort into it! The winkie face in the morning is sweet and the device itself is sleek and sophisticated. I never have used pharmaceutical birth control... and when we were ready to get pregnant with our son, I consulted the app for when I was ovulating... literally 2.5 weeks later I was looking at a positive pregnancy test! Now that we've decided to wait for more babies, the app has been an invaluable tool for helping me map out my cycle. When I told the doctor my form of birth control is the ovulation method, he jokingly said it was a good way to get pregnant... but here we are going 5+ years strong! I credit that in large part to the Kindara app helping me to keep everything together and know my body better. As a Registered Nurse, I recommend this app to friends and family as a much safer (and equally effective) method of birth control and family planning. Thanks Kindara for all that you've done to make a fantastic app that has helped me personally to have better understanding of my fertility and for our family to be able to plan ahead. No form of pregnancy control or planning is perfect, but Kindara comes pretty close! 😉
Would NOT USE if I didn’t have Wink
This app needs SERIOUS HELP. You cannot change previously set settings due to the apps inability to unglitch itself to make the change. Started off by wanting to edit the personal extra settings I had on the chart such as adding a dot on “prenatals” if I had taken them that day etc,- which it wouldn’t let me do so I had to completely delete each entry and readd it all in. Then when it came to updating my “temperature reminder” alarm, which to this day after a week of messing with it, STILL WONT UPDATE from 4:30am to 6am. Finally decided to just turn off that alarm and use the one on my iPhone. Uninstalled the app and reinstalled it hoping it would fix the issue..but NOPE! Instead none of my previous data entries synced right and instead show up blank so then I had to go in and re-edit all of my personal settings again. This app is a mess. Still waiting to hear back from support. Lastly the Wink rarely syncs with my phone (iPhone 7plus with current update), causing me to have to open the Wink again in the morning, unlock my phone and have the app open for 2-5 minutes for it to get it together. Remind you this is a $150 dollar “hi-tech” thermometer. Wound up just shelling out the $50 for Fertility Friend and manually inputting the temperature results in there. Just a massive expensive headache. 🤦🏼♀️
Some changes are not so great
Good resource overall. I understand why they want to monetize certain features and retain them for the paid version. However, it is bothersome for them to show up as a locked item in the data section and chart view. Why not simply remove them from cycles those are not active for and come up with a less obtrusive method for reminding users why they might want to upgrade. Being annoyed and frustrated doesn’t make me want to have more of something. At some point along the changes the calendar view became visually cluttered and difficult to tell what symbol is what. Also, I cannot scroll beyond a couple of months without problems. So, for instance, if I want to know when it would be 40 weeks out from the beginning of a cycle - this is a fertility tracking app after all - and I try to count weeks as I scroll through, at some point the calendar won’t accurately load the next month and then it will put me well into the future. Bothersome. Kindara could add a function to the calendar to find 40 weeks out from any given cycle start date. Even better if it would let you see the projected dates of future cycles as well.
☺️ user turned 😥
I learned how to chart using kindara almost a year ago. I loved the app then and would probably give it 5 stars at that point. I have been somewhat indifferent about the updates thus far, but the most recent 3-4 updates have been extremely glitched (each one meant to fix a previous glitch seems to create a new one). I’m extremely disappointed about kindara’s move toward paid premium features. I agree with another reviewer that this is particularly unfair to ongoing TTA-ers. Who would just have to continually pay vs a person TTC only needing the app until pregnancy is achieved. The feature I am the most disappointed that kindara is removing from the free version is unlimited custom data. Any of the other things are just kinda meh to me. I’m very strongly considering looking for a new app or even going to paper charting if I don’t find one that’s as comprehensive as kindara. But I would be incredibly sad to lose the kindara community over these things, but (I'm thinking because of a new glitch) I cant access the community right now anyway. $4.99/mo is far to steep a price for the features offered, especially considering the glitches.
New upgrades and premium/good public ruined app
I’ve been using Kindara for several years and have become especially close to about 5 or so women on the community who also have severe Endometriosis and are trying to conceive. Two of them overcame their infertility and gave birth to their healthy babies this past year, one is halfway along in her IVF pregnancy, and the rest of us have now moved on to IVF in order to have children. I love Wink and ordered one as soon as it was available-it’s incredible and saves a lot of time. I’ve noticed Kindara hired some new high-level employees last year and since then got greedy, asking users to pay to use the app (when we’ve already paid for Wink) and then playing around with the app and ability to track one’s daily data, with endless bugs and issues since around Thanksgiving of 2017 (what an inconvenient and stressful time to roll out such an overhaul guys!!!) and messing up the community (as of today it seems the app won’t let me login to connect with the other ladies I’ve become so close to over the past few years-I’m freaking out). Please, please consider fixing your customer service and revert the app back to the way it was before the 6.1 version.
Great data input!
We are strictly TTA, from now until menopause. Love the layout & ease of data input. Everything on 1 screen is great, no waiting for something to save before being able to enter something else. The drop shapes for type of CM with 3 levels for the amount of CM—just perfect. I added 3 custom boxes, CBFM peak, high & low in that order, so as they were checked they would show up with L @ the bottom & P higher, so I have a great visual for my clear blue monitor for the Marquette Method of NFP. So glad I found this app! It should make TTA much easier to chart & so happy dh can have it on his phone, that is great...he tells me, "our phones went off, it must be time for your self-check" I like that it reminds him so he reminds me to chart & he then checks the app so he is more aware of where we are in my cycle & knows when we can be 'together' & now can see when, not to ask, 'how about tonight'-I am no longer the gate-keeper, having to always tell him no during my fertile phase!
Best of them all
I have tried almost every period app out there over the last six or seven years... I have been using another app for over a year and with my extremely irregular cycles (40-60 days) I have never been able to get an accurate prediction date for the start of my period. I downloaded Kindara and input all of my cycle dates from my other app, and was told a predicted period start date that was over a week earlier than my other app’s predicted date. I started charting my temperature every morning, which helped me know a day ahead of time when my period was going to start. Surprisingly my period came a day after Kindara’s predicted date. That’s the closest prediction I’ve ever gotten from an app! And I was amazed that my temp dropped a whole degree the day before and the morning my period started, just like the info from Kindara says should happen when a woman is cycling normally. Overall I am extremely impressed and believe I have found my forever app!
Take control of your health!
After being on the pill for over a decade I have been so happy with the health transformation I've experienced with the help of Kindara app and wink thermometer. I was tired of mood swings, weight gain, hormonal acne, and other sensitivities. Quitting the pill was the best decision I've ever made, my health, mood, and skin have all improved and in such a short period of time! I love that kindara works with users that are both trying to avoid pregnancy and conceive- this makes it the perfect app to take you through any phase of life. It's so easy to use and helps me to feel confident in monitoring my phases. I feel like a new, free woman! Highly recommend! **update: after using kindara to track my fertility for 9 months, I am now pregnant and can tell you the exact moment I conceived! My fertility became predictable and easy to work around or work with, depending on your goal that particular month :) can’t say enough of how much this app has empowered my personal health journey!
I successfully used Kindara to avoid pregnancy for about 8 months, but mainly I was just trying to gather data to be sure I was ovulating, since my period was pretty irregular. I put in basal temp data religiously for 8 months, then stopped once I felt sure I was really ovulating. I didn't record any data for 5 months. Then I changed over to trying to conceive mode, and the app predicted my fertile window based on the old temp data. It was right! :D Very user friendly, much better than other similar apps. Helpful reminders that you can easily customize keep you on track. Highly recommend to anyone whether avoiding pregnancy or trying to get pregnant. Update: I used this again to track my period after it came back postpartum, and again when TTC a second time. It look longer this go-round, but I was able to use cervical mucus tracking to know peak fertility days this time. Again, very user friendly interface.
Helped me conceive!
I can't say enough good things about Kindara. When trying to conceive my second child, I read the book Taking Charge of your Fertility by Dr. Toni Weschler (a must read) and upon deciding to start charting my BBT, I searched for an app to help me do it. I tried a couple which weren't user friendly and didn't offer what I wanted, but then I found Kindara. This was back in late 2012 and I don't think it has been all that long since they launched. Using the app from the beginning has helped so much. I was directly in touch with the wonderful women who developed this app and they integrated one of the suggestions I made. They really listen to their users and they goal of helping women really get to know their bodies to maximize their fertility has become a reality for me. I am so grateful that I have this app to use every day. It makes my life so much easier!
4/5 charting/customization is great
I have used Kindara along with two other tracking apps for many years. They all have different strengths and weaknesses and using all three guarantees my ability to keep babies away. I enjoy this app specifically for its charting layout and simplistic view. At a quick glance I can promptly determine the information I need by its movable and highly customizable layout. That’s how it earns four stars. It loses one star for its inability to predict Ovulation. I love that it places this in our hands but I would also like this to be summarized by the app. I enjoy having the ability to chart CF type, cervix height and placement, temps and CF consistency and determine the data accordingly but I would also enjoy it if the app suggested this based on the data I enter. It’s always nice to receive validation. I especially enjoy this app for its customization abilities. You can toggle categories and add emojis for quick reference. So it can be a silly as charting moon phases along with your cycle or moods, pain level, details about the consistency of fluids- it can be anything. That is another star! It looses one bc these customizations only go future tense. If I were to add these in the past, they would delete next cycle. However if they are added “today” they will continue infinitely. So I can chart things on this app that I cannot on other period and fertility apps. All together: 4/5 stars.
