There are several period-tracking apps on the market, but none quite like Clue. What distinguishes Clue from the pack is the fact that it’s relatively discreet and not that gendered.

Once you input information about your cycle, moods and sexual activity, the app tracks your cycle and estimates your monthly visitor’s arrival. Never again do you have to wonder when it’s coming.


2. iBreastCheck

It’s free and it’s totally worth it.
