During the past year we have continuously added more features and content to the application but we are not done yet! While you are reading this, our product team is hard at work on new content in the app that we hope will excite you. The changes are targeted at both new and experienced Cyclers with the goal of making it easier for all to go from novice to pro as well as getting more useful content. Feel free to have your say on all the changes in the comments below.
The “Me page” becomes “Cycle Statistics” and gets a redesign
We know that many cyclers really appreciate that they can see the numbers behind their unique cycle on the “Me Page”. That is why we have put some extra love into redesigning the visuals as well as adding some more content. In the new version you will be able to compare all your data with the average for all Cyclers, access deeper information on how to interpret the data and see how well you are performing at entering measurements. All the data will be split into four tabs; the full cycle, the follicular phase, the luteal phase and the ovulation. There will also be a small version of the graph to go with the different phases of the cycle.
Another important improvement is that you will now get direct feedback on is your temperature fluctuations. We will rate your fluctuation as either “Excellent”, “Good”, “OK”, “Problematic” or “Too high”. If your rating is “Problematic” or “Too high” we will give advice on how to improve and what the reasons for this may be. Hopefully this will help you lower your temperature fluctuations, which will help us to faster find your ovulation.
Are you a newbie or a pro? Well soon you will find out! As a part of the new profile section and the progress you make we will give you a rank of “Newbie”, “Junior”, “Skilled”, “Pro” or “Star” (the exact name of the ranks are still being discussed so feel free to give us feedback on them). We hope that this feature will put focus on your own individual performance and act as a motivator.
Achievements are intended to guide and motivate new Cyclers as well as will give a hint on what to expect from using the app over time. The more achievements a Cycler has reached, the better both she and the app will have gotten to know her unique body and cycle. An achievement is reached by completing tasks within the app or when the app first recommend the Cycler to perform a certain task. Here are a few examples of the achievements that will be available:
- Add your first temperature measurement.
- Add five temperature measurements in one week, Monday to Sunday.
- Add twenty temperature measurements in one calendar month.
- The application has detected your ovulation for the fist time.
- The application has recommended you to take a LH test for the first time.
- Get over 50% green days in one cycle.
“My Profile” is the new “Settings”
With the addition of your Cycler level and achievements we are renaming the settings tab to “My profile”. This will be where you can find these new features, all your personal settings and manage your account. We will also make your renewal date and selected payment option more visible.
To go with all the new content and changes listed above we will make some adjustments to the tab navigation of the app. We will introduce a new icon for the “Cycle Statistics” tab and the “Me” icon will replace the old one for settings as this tab becomes “My Profile”. We are also considering adding labels to the tab navigation. As always we would love your feedback and thoughts on these changes.
