One push of a button in the Period Tracker Lite app signifies that your period has begun. However, upgrading to the deluxe version allows for the most customization compared to other apps in the category. The deluxe version features a huge variety of symptoms that you're able to select and track over the course of your cycle, including 30 different moods which, if you know mood swings, sounds about right.

Clue has a surprisingly sophisticated design, so you feel more like a woman tracking her time of the month than a pre-teen just getting the hang of it. You have the ability to track cycle patterns and schedule birth control, breast checks, and period start date reminders. Clue is a "smart" app in that its predictions for start date, length of cycle, and days menstruating become more accurate the longer you use it. (Free; Android and iOS)
