Pepapp is quite a great app, and here is why. So far, it has one of the most intelligent designs I’ve seen. Most of the times, when a period app has lots of features, but poor design, it gets kind of laborious to use. Pepapp is just the opposite. It’s quite intuitive and the smart-minimalist design makes it easier to use. I find this quite an achievement, because all you wanna do is open the app, log your symptoms fast and keep doing whatever you were doing.

The main menu shows just what you need: current weekdays, some great tips about women issues and the “+” button to log your symptoms and feelings, sorted in a very smart menu that allows you to log things fast. Also, you’ll get suggestions depending on your goals, which are: “trying getting pregnant” or just “tracking your period”.

Its “Pepzine” section is filled with lots of very helpful articles, sorted in 10 categories. This is key for today’s teenagers who are starting to get into their period.

What can I say? I love this period app! Simple display, fast and smart logging options and pretty nice colours too! Pepapp is quite a great option, that’s all I can say……period.
