Spot On App bagged the Winner Award in the Apps Category Of Innovation By Design 2017 and we are not surprised. The female health and reproductivity centered health app is created by Planned Parenthood. With more than one million downloads ever since its debut in March 2016, the health app has become a darling of women across the world.
Unlike most fertility tracking apps that focus on pregnancy and fertility tips, Spot On caters to the long awaited need of all the women trying not to get pregnant. The App has become a favorite of a huge female population generally under 30 as it helps them to track not just their period but the entire fertility cycle according to the information fed by the user. It reminds you both when you have to take your birth control pills or the days you can go patch-free. It also keeps a track of your fertility cycle and reminds you of the most fertile days so you can ensure extra protection.
The app is divided into four sections of Day, Stats, Resources, and Profile. The first gives you daily reminder and check-ins, your cycle overview based on the mood, body, action and period info you enter. Stats, helps you organize the former data based on your priorities and offers you experience report of each cycle and a comparison of the same from other months. Resources offer insights into your period, fertility cycle, birth control and steps needed in case of a missed pill. In order to strengthen the user experience, the app offers suggestions in case you are unsure of certain medicines or definitions. Finally, the profile includes your basic information, period predictions, the control method you’re on with options of exporting your report and updating reminders.
Planned Parenthood has put a lot of thought into the entire design and executive process of the application. It aims at connecting with people and their health, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Considering the continuously increasing user interface of the app, the efforts of Planned Parenthood suggest a success, evident with the happy reviews.
