“Spot On” App Empowers and Inspires Good Health With Period Tracker
Sarasota, FL — Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida (PPSWCF) is thrilled to announce the launch of Planned Parenthood's new period and birth control tracking app: Spot On!
The app is designed by Planned Parenthood’s national office to help anyone with a period and/or using birth control to understand their own unique bodies, menstrual cycles, and birth control methods. Users can track and predict their periods, manage their birth control, keep tabs on their whole cycle, and get guidance, tips, and fun facts from Planned Parenthood experts.
“This effort is part of Planned Parenthood's efforts to find new and innovative ways to meet people where they are with the information and care they need to stay healthy. We are bringing support right to their pockets,” said Dr. Suzie Prabhakaran, Vice President of Medical Affairs for PPSWCF.
Spot On is currently available in the iTunes app store for iOS; an Android version will follow in mid-June. Spot On is now featured in the iTunes App Store in New Apps We Love in the US and Canada.
Barbara Zdravecky, CEO of PPSWCF added, “Spot On was made to empower women with confidence, choice and control in realizing their full sexual and reproductive health. It's free for everyone, accessible and easy to understand, and doesn't make assumptions about gender or sexual orientation. Planned Parenthood is proud to offer this new app to our community.”
