Absolutely Perfect! Does everything you need with a simple straight forward interface, including edits and a nice visual display of the last two hours of contractions. Made me look like a birthing pro with our first child's labor.
Here's a hint... It works just fine... But I'll say one thing... If you're using it you're probably not in established labour! Once I got properly started I didn't want to be doing with it anymore. Seems to be the best way to tell. Your contractions can be 5 mins apart right from the beginning. It was when I was getting impatient with people asking me questions that I knew I was right to be phoning the hospital. Then again, some people pop their babas out really quick whereas my labour was a 36 hour odyssey.
Life saver! I was unsure if I had to go to hospital after waking up with contractions. Used this app to time my pain for an hour and sure enough my contractions were less than 5 minutes apart. Threw my hospital bags into the car and made it in time to the delivery room to give birth an hour later. This app was a life saver!
Thank you! I've used it for my two false alarms - my husband timed for me, but this is so simple I can even do it myself while having contractions.
Easy to use while in pain Super easy to use. Super simple. I could be hunched over focused on my breathing. But still be able to use this and count where I was at. Very very useful
great visualization of timings - easy the edit errors The easy editability made this app stand a cut above the rest. It was easy to see the trajectory contractions were taking via the visual markers and avoided confusion caused by timers that just kept a running average of frequency and duration. Seriously, Contraction Timer's top bar made it super easy to know where timings stood whereas the timer our doula used could spit out a skewed average and hid any editabilty behind three other menues. Pick this one up!
Complete rewrite of application, for users with Android 4+ phones:
