This app was very helpful. It helped give my sister-in-law something to focus on through her contractions on our way to the hospital. The clean interface and large buttons allowed for ease of use. Unlike other comments we found it comical when it told us to head to the hospital bc we were already en-route but it does appear to have been up-dated to follow the 5-1-1 rule of thumb. My sister-in-law was very disappointed to find that it wasn't available in the Google Playstore for her future use.
I like the actual timing of the contractions however, it would be more helpful to know what the level of intensity of the contractions are. Being able to "rate" the pain level of each contraction would be better because Braxton Hicks contractions can come on the regular but unfortunately not be a good indicator of actual labor. Also, according to most OBs/midwives, the rule to go to the hospital follows 5-1-1. Contractions that are 5 mins apart, 1 minute in duration and lasting for 1 hour. The app told me to head to he hospital when my contractions were ranging from 11 to 17 to 8 mins apart. It appears to only take into consideration if you've had 4 contractions total before suggesting to head in but not really considering the spacing aspect. Again, I do like the ability to see the time frame between multiple contractions but I feel there are features that would be more beneficial when actually determining if labor is real.
The screen doesn’t go off, when it’s pulled up, doesn’t have constant annoying advertisements like other contraction apps, I give 4 stars, because you can edit a contraction only if you buy full version, but when having contractions hit the button by accident a couple times. And this app also doesn’t record at what time when you were having the contractions, some other apps had that, so that would be nice to add, to be able to look back through the whole day at the time and intensity of the contractions.
Used this app a few days ago while I'm labor. I love the clean design and the large button tap for the start and stop of contractions. Very easy to use. The updates about when to pack or leave for the hospital were also an added bonus that I appreciated. The only thing I would have liked was for there to be some way to see what time the contraction actually happened. As I'm trying to think back to when I was actually in "active" labor, I'm realizing that information would have been helpful. That aside! Definitely get this app.
I used this app for about two weeks to make sure I was keeping the right track. It kept saying practice contractions and it calmed me down On the day of, it said to prepare and call the hospital. We did, so we were ready to go. Then, it prompted me to go to the hospital. I went to pee and what was left of my mucus plug came out. So I woke up my husband and got to the hospital. Three hours later, my baby was born. This app really helped me to come in at the right time and not freak out before hand
Good for timing
This was a great app for keep track of the spacing of contractions and length of each contraction. The interface was attractive and easy to use and read under pressure. My labor came on hard and fast so it was great to be able to see really how quickly everything was happening. The app did tell me to go to the hospital earlier than my OB advised. I would just lose that feature. Each pregnancy and doctor's advice is different. I ignored the alerts and followed my OB's advice. I would defiantly use this app again and recommend it.
By far the best and easiest!
This app helped me when other ones I started then prompted to upgrade and pay this was free, quick, simple and exactly why I needed. Once it said to call my doctor and head to the hospital I did just that and the Dr asked questions I only knew because the app helped me track it. So I was able to correctly track my contractions in the middle of the night while I wasn't aware of timing and have it exactly documented. This is the best app!
Seriously this app saved me from delivering my second son in the car! I thought I had time yet, based off my first delivery, when it told me to go to the hospital I was going to wait. My partner insisted that if the app said to go we are going and it's a good thing too because we were at the hospital less than an hour and my son was born! Simple and easy to use and understand, which is everything you want going into labor! A++++
Great, but rename the app!
This was a wonderful way to keep count when my attention was so fully consumed with the contractions. However, after a bit a message from the App Store to rate the app asked “How are you enjoying Contractions?” I almost threw my phone across the room! Loved the app, not the pain! By all means, use this to take the thinking part out of labor, but let someone else rate the app when the message comes up :)
Pretty decent in a basic way
Honestly overall it's nice, but owning it is almost no different than free and you can't do a separate session. Which may sound silly but I can't link my email into my phones mail settings as I use a non supported email. So I can't even export my data... and it doesn't tell you the overall start time and end time nor does it let you "pause" It says to potentially shower and eat but to do so you may not be recording contractions... overall it's simple to use which I like but a little disappointing.
Minimum viable product
Best UI out there - very simple & straightforward. I really like this one & am using it over the other two I downloaded. That said; is is definitely bare bones 3 basic missing features: if I hit the button by accident, then delete the accidental contraction, it should fix the "duration" time -- i.e., if I have a contraction at 10:10, bump the button accidentally at 10:05, then have another contraction at 10:10, then delete the middle one... the duration between the two "real" contractions should be 10 minutes, not 5. I should be able to update the length of a contraction. And I should be able to rate "strength" ... those seem the major missing features to me, but overall the app is usable, has a nice clean UI, and isn't annoying. Definitely worth a try, especially if you just want the basics :)
A freaking godsend!
Downloaded this app based on a side recommendation from a friend. When my wife thought she was going into labor, we were fixated on this app and getting closer to the 5-1-1 mark. Every call to the Dr starts with asking about those key metrics and calculating rolling averages on the fly in a stressful situation is not viable. Easily worth the price for free, splurged for the 2$ for the ability to edit contraction results.
Does its job
I wish there was a way to change the date of the contraction. I find myself forgetting I started a contraction and if I do this just before midnight and the contraction runs over into midnight accidentally, I can’t adjust it back to the time the contraction actually ended. It won’t let you change the day. I know I should just be staying in the app and ending the contraction when it actually stops for more accuracy but I’m forgetful. Otherwise I like the app. It does its job. Just could use some improvements.
Easy and straightforward
I downloaded this app about 30 minutes after I thought I was in labor and it was really helpful and simple to use. It was accurate in its suggestion to get ready and when to head to the hospital. The only annoying thing were the ads that popped up at inconvenient times, like that’s at all what you’re worried about when you’re in labor.. Still would suggest it and use it again!
Great for timing, sometimes annoying interprets
Love the timer; it’s slightly annoying to see its little interpretations pop up “Looks like Practice Contractions” etc. Especially for someone prone to prodromal labor. I can interpret the data just fine without pop up messages giving me extra ideas. Plus, they seem like they could be misleading for some people. Better to just let us see the data and avoid the interpretations.
