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!
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!
simple & effective i like the simple design.. easy to start &stop.. no fuss and can clearly see the contraction timings. currently using the app now for feeding, just adding in the comments for more info.
Complete rewrite of application, for users with Android 4+ phones:

- Can edit any entry.
- Can add comments to entries.
- Added a recent contractions graph.

Please note that if your phone doesn't have Android 4 or newer, it will still use the old version of the app.
