Grace Health Period Tracker, an app that sells as the best women’s health and fertility assistant, and says it guides women so they make informed decisions about their bodies, fell into our radar for the week.
Period tracking apps are a relatively new phenomenon, but it is believed that over 50 million women use period tracking apps worldwide. So, we considered Grace Health Period Tracker to help you understand if you should use the platform too.
We would be reviewing the app based on app design, ease of use, available features, pricing and feedback.

I just love this app. It’s so amazing. I use it to track my girlfriend’s periods and stuff. It helps me to take care of her more. And even though it’s free, there are no stupid adverts. Thank you, Grace.
I used the apps for a few days and then it started acting up. But, nonetheless, I got a message telling me to update thus solving the problem and as promised the problem was fixed. But for real tho, this is a starter pack for all women, ranging from tracking your cycle, safe windows, sexual activities and even getting free advice THIS IS IT, LADIES, THIS IS IT!!!!!
The first time I started using the grace app, it was working fine until one day it stopped, I had to update it & I lost all my tracking and everything, and then I started afresh. Today, it stopped opening and I checked my Google Play Store and found out that I need to update it. After updating it, I can’t track it again. If I click on track it won’t respond. I don’t know why. Please help me resolve this matter. I don’t want to uninstall and reinstall it again, I will lose all the information that I have.
I really love the app. It keeps prompting you to update your data and the language used is very warm and calming, however, it doesn’t give an alternative to track any other data not listed, how do we cope with this?
A) Users should be able to retain logged-in data when they update the app and updates should not so frequent.
B) De-congest the landing page. The landing page begins to look so busy after the usage starts; at least for privacy reasons.
Yet, the Grace Health Period Tracker has basic features and article recommendations that may help women understand their bodies well, especially during their period.
