Fertility friend, no question. Yes it’s kinda ugly but it has the best algorithm, no ads, and doesn’t sell your data.

Definitely Fertility Friend. It’s not very user friendly, but in terms of tracking and managing data it’s the best. It’s the app to use it’s you’re serious about getting pregnant. 

I also like Ovia from a design standpoint, but it’s algorithm gives such a broad window that it’s almost useless from a fertility perspective. I keep it around because I plan to use it post babies when all I want to do is track my period.

Another vote for fertility friend. The folks in the charters of the hive thread on here can help with any question about its less-than-intuitive layout at times, but I agree with the above comments about its algorithms/accuracy.

Has anyone tried Ovuview? It seems more user friendly than FF but I never see anyone talk about it on here.

Definitely Clue.  I’ve been using it since 2013 and love it.  All my friends swear by Kindara, so that one is good too.

Another vote for Fertility Friend. I almost didn’t want to try it because of how dated the interface looks, but once I used it for 2 cycles it’s a clear winner.

Ugly but dependable.

After the recommendations here, I’ve been using Fertility Friend. If you are really interested in several pieces of data, this is a great app. I waited until there was a promotion to go VIP. I think it was like $20 for a year. It’s a great deal when you are using multiple features. I would suggest paying for VIP when you are actually TTCing. That’s when it’s more useful.

I’ve used Fertility Friend in the past but Clue is also really good IMO. I’m not sure if it has temping information though.

I like Fertility Friend now after using it for 2 and a half cycles. I hated it at first but compared to Kindara and Ovia which I also use and just comparing across all three, Fertility Friend is the clear winner if you temp. If you don’t temp, then Ovia is great. I liked using Ovia before I started really TTC. With temping and the more detailed analysis from FF in terms of predicting the fertile window and then confirming the ovulation date automatically without me having to do anything other than enter my temps and CM, it’s gotten to the point where FF is pretty effortless for me.
