Are you suffering from baby fever? Did your cousin’s adorable toddler almost kill you with cuteness over the holidays? Got a smartphone?

Woman Calendar for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
We’re not accustomed to discussing cycles; ovaries, periods or really, any body parts whatsoever on the Tech Sense channel. But, this app is definitely worth the trouble. Woman Calendar, described by it’s developers as a “Fertility Awareness tool”, pulls out all the stops; visual graphs, BBT charts (basal body temperature), and notes.
Think of this app like a digital calendar on powerful steroids.
This app also offers users a handful of great features like the option to backup data, print, export to mail, or CSV files, all through clean intuitive design, all cleverly organized.
We liked the ability the quickly view color-coded calendars signifying the type of day such as “fertile” “safe” and “ovulation”. It’s a robust app with the high sticker price of around $10.00.

WomanLog Pro for Android
Similar to Woman Calendar, this app is seriously detailed and helps you record things like cervical mucus, by date. We’ll take this opportunity to mention the password protection feature at this time.
The user interface is groovy! Users can choose from multiple flavors, colors and designs within the app, while monitoring their daily mucus on charts and graphs. WomanLog Pro Calendar is a win, and it’s available for about $3 in the Android Market.
