iPeriod is Just for the Ladies (mostly)
iPeriod won me over.
Although menstruation tracking apps aren't exactly new to the App Store, I've avoided reviewing any of them. It's not that I'm squeamish about the subject matter. It's just that I've never been the type to track this information, so why start now?

When You Need to Sleep or Relax Try a Little White Noise
If you have trouble sleeping or just need to relax, TMSOFT's White Noise may be just what you need to hear.

It plays tones at eight different frequencies that are broken down by which age groups should normally be able to hear them. It starts with 8000 Hz, which supposedly all people can hear. It then goes all the way down to 18-year-olds and below, which are supposed to hear tones at a frequency of 20,000 Hz.
iFitness Needs A Workout
The iFitness app might be the place for some to re-start but for most it leaves a lot of unanswered questions. Medical Productions Inc is the company behind iFitness iPhone app. But who is Medical Productions Inc and what are their qualifications? Your guess is as good as mine.
Health Cubby Connects Friends for Tracking Fitness Goals
Health Cubby is a social fitness app from App Cubby. Health Cubby allows you to set your fitness goals on your iPhone and follow your own progress as well as the progress of your friends. This app does not support the tedious task of calorie counting, which is fine by me.
