You can now download the new updated version of the Natural Cycles app. We worked really hard to improve it and listened to all of your valuable feedback. We’re super excited and proud of it, and we hope you’ll like it as much as we do!
Along with the major design changes, we have even more news! Natural Cycles is now available on Apple Watch, and the Natural Cycles algorithm has been updated to even more accurately find and narrow down your fertile window.
Track your Fertility mode
Safety is our number one priority and it was therefore important to make sure that the new design reflects what’s most important about Natural Cycles.
- The focus in the new app is on today’s fertility status – red or green. Simple!
- Below your current fertility state, you can see your predictions for the week. Here, it was very important to make clear that predictions may change in the future and should not be taken for granted – just like with the weather.
- After today’s current view, you can switch to have a monthly overview presented to you as a calendar. Here again, it was very important to separate your past fertility from future predictions.
- If you want to dig a little deeper into your data, you can have a look at the graph as well as your cycle statistics.
The new design is a result of several thousands of hours listening, analyzing and engaging with your feedback. Thank you!
Below, you will find an explanation of the icons as well as some answers to most common questions.
How to enter data
To enter your daily data, click on the + in the upper right corner. Enter your temperature and if you want to add any additional data, such as ovulation test result or a note, you click on “additional data”. Click ‘save’ and you’re all set! In this view you can also swipe to the left to go back in time to see your previously entered data. If you have entered any data and then swipe back, your data will be saved automatically!
How to access the graph?
You can access your graph under the “today” view by tapping on the graph symbol in the upper right corner – we are currently working on further improving the graph, so stay tuned!
Changes in the algorithm
With significantly more data from all you Cyclers, we were able to optimize our algorithm for the new app such that it will identify and predict ovulation and your fertile window with even greater accuracy. This update in algorithm might lead to small changes in the history of your data, which means that you might see a previously red day change into a green day, and vice versa. This is normal because we run a new, improved algorithm over your entire dataset. You do not need to worry about this – important is to always check today’s fertility status!
Natural Cycles Plan mode
For Natural Cycles Plan users, we focused on clearly highlighting your most fertile days. The most fertile days are indicated in red, while your less fertile days will be shown in different shades of soft pink colors. Your non-fertile days are shown in a light grey color.
We’re excited to hear your feedback,
All the best,
The Natural Cycles Team
