Buy iPeriod Period Tracker Ultimate / Menstrual Calendar on the App Store

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?

Buy White Noise on the App Store

Buy Full Fitness : Exercise Workout Trainer on the App Store

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.
