Keep on top of monthly issues with Woman Calendar for Windows Phone 8

It's no secret that women face challenges each month and there are solutions out there to help keep on top of everything. Woman Calendar is a Windows Phone app, developed by a small startup in Bulgaria, which aids women in keeping track of their cycle, as well as assisting in the emotional and physical changes that occur. The app is also billed to help men better understand and prepare for such times to arise.

We've previously looked at Woman Calendar a handful of times, but now the app has been bumped to support Windows Phone 8.

So what features are sported by Woman Calendar? Users can take advantage of cycle tracking, daily horoscope, check future period dates, make use of ovulation and fertile day calculators, temperature and weight tracking, and a daily pill reminder. It's a set of useful tools that many can rely on to help them through said difficult times.

Woman Calendar

Woman Calendar takes it further with the ability for users to store their data on the company's Windows Azure servers and thus being able to access it from any Windows Phone and Windows 8 device. Pretty neat. The Windows Phone 7 versions are highly rated, so we expect those who own Windows Phone 8 hardware to enjoy the added support (no lock screen support just yet, folks).

Here's the list of improvements for the Windows Phone 8 version:

  • Sports speed improvements
  • Overall UI has been refreshed with the layout altered so information is more easily accessed
  • Moods and symptom features are now available for free
  • Horoscope supports translations for languages other than English
  • All charts are available for free (restricted to the latest data)

There are two versions available for Windows Phone, as well as one for Windows 8. You can download Woman Calendar for Windows Phone 8 from the Windows Phone Store (free, ad-supported), and also pick up versions for Windows Phone 7 (free edition) that is also compatible with Windows 8. The paid version for Windows Phone 7 has a few more features, such as the ability to track 26 moods and 30 symptoms, password protection, Live Tile support and support to share your records via email.

  • ^haha
  • Sorry but this comment is hilarious. Lol.
  • There should be a notification for the spouse letting you know it's time lol
  • Notification: Get ready for
  • That didn't take long :)
  • Hey you asked for it lol
  • Great app, I thank developers for such an good app our girls community need that app with the red magneta phones,.
  • Well this can be used by guys to track their women to see when not to visit... I'm just saying.
  • "track their women" uh, more than one?  i guess you could use it to keep track of the women you've visited and when ;)
  • heh, good article Rich!  Very diplomatic :) 
  • Sometimes I wish I were female so I could use these cycle calculator apps. I find the notion of my body functions operating on a dependable cycle rather attractive.
  • Believe me, those cycles aren't always dependable! ;-) Great app for us women, I've been using it since my Lumia 800 days.
  • Well written, it's not just WP8 that is getting better, WPC also.
  • "daily pill reminder"...I will keep it away from my woman :P
  • The updates of this app are fairly periodic.
  • I see what you did there!! Hahaha
  • Haha good one mate...! :D
  • Hi khipara, you made me laugh! Greetings from the Woman Calendar developer.
  • LOL! I knew there would be some funny comments on this post. Yours takes the crown pal.
  • Made me laugh. Not that LOL, stuff...a real laugh.
  • Hahaha I'm so immature Lmao!!! ^_^
  • Is see three apps. One paid and one free for WP 7&8 and one for WP 8 for free. Is this right? Its strange because the free WP 8 version is from a different developer.
  • Hi Squatting Hen, you are right - both the Win 8 and WP8 version are from a different developer - Cool Apps. The reason is that WP7 version were submitted from a personal account and unfortunately Microsoft doesn't allow to upgrade your account from personal to company type.
  • 21 comments, almost all from males (including mine), disappointed.
  • Ohhh tracking app for women failed to track women on wpcentral, it failed its first test lols
  • We've actually been using the WP7 app to track my wife's cycle for close to a year. We don't want to have another child at this point and, for her own reasons, she doesn't want to be on birth control. For my own reasons, I don't want to use protection if I don't have to. This app helps us keep track of the relatively small window of fertility and keeps everyone happy. 
  • Hi WhyFiNYC,
    I am glad to hear you like Woman Calendar and find it usefull. Still, a woman's ovulation and fertility is strictly personal and could vary a lot. This is why I can't promise that you will be 'safe' by simply fallowing such a method, especially in the long term.
  • I just threw up in my mouth a little
  • Lol
  • Monthly issues for women?  Sounds like a calendar for tracking periods
    Dude I had to, the door was wide open
  • Am I the only female to comment on this? Seems so from the predictable contents of the comments ;-) Good, useful app. Makes me want to buy a Win 8 replacement for my nasty Win 7 HP laptop. Which won't be HP.
  • No you aren't. I use this app too, it's very nice.
  • No, you're not the only one-- I'm giving a side-eye to the comments as well (some are actually funny). People forget that apps like these have existed since Palm OS/Handspring days & are quite helpful. Nice interface. I'll try it.
  • "Monthly issues"... that's a new one.
