Glow is a new fertility tracking app that helps couples trying to conceive a baby.
The free iPhone app collects information about menstrual cycles, cervical mucus, and other physical and emotional states — from which it discerns and advises on how to maximize your chances of pregnancy. The advice comes from medical consultants, as well as anonymized, aggregated data collected from other users about what worked best.
“Our emerging ability to crunch and analyze vast quantities of data will be specifically used to help get you pregnant,” the developer says. “There is nothing more exciting than starting a family. But, the first step of getting pregnant can seem surprisingly difficult at times. Don’t lose hope. Pregnancy is a special experience, and our mission is to bring that experience to you as early as possible.”
