We just released v8.8.1 for Period Tracker Deluxe on the iPhone. This update fixes an issue that occurred in v8.8 where some users who were updating from a previous version were being shown a log in page. If you encountered this issue in v8.8, download v8.8.1 to fix this issue, or you can read my previous post for instructions on how to get past the login screen.
In addition to the bug fix, v8.8.1 also adds the same improvements from v8.8 to the Calendar page. We noticed that many of our users seemed to enjoy the “intimacy” and “flow/spotting” calendar icons on their month-view calendar. So we decided to expand on this functionality by showing symptom, mood, and pill icons on the month-view calendar as well.
So now, if you enter any symptom, mood, or pill note, the corresponding icon will show on that day’s calendar note section. Then when you click on any of the icons, you will see that icon appear on the month-view calendar on each day that same note has been entered. You can even scroll back to past months to see when else you entered that same note. We hope this feature will be helpful to our users.
In addition to this feature, v8.8.1 also adds improvements to our Social section by adding larger profile pictures in Social. Just tap on a profile icon in public profile page to enlarge the view.
We hope you enjoy this update and if you have any questions or thoughts, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This update adds the following improvements to PTracker Social:
- Tip and survey responses to your posts now automatically appears in your following tab.
- Adds ability to follow responses to tip/survey question.
- Adds comment section for reporting abuse.
- Adds ability to view someone’s past posts in her profile pages.
- Fixes issue of error message popping up when re-entering the app.

Some of our iPhone Deluxe users have asked for a dark mode to lessen eye discomfort while reading their Social tab at night. Here’s a quick trick to invert the colors on your iPhone whenever you triple click the home button that does the trick!
- Go to your main iPhone Settings
- Click the General icon
- Click on Accessibility
- Select Triple-click Home
- Select Invert Colors
Whenever you want your whites and blacks to be inverted, click your home button three times fast. Here’s a screenshot of what your social tab will look like in this mode. One warning, the profile pics might look weird in this mode, but hopefully the easier to read text will make up for this.
Update: Period Tracker v 1.2 that fixes the hidden calendar issue is now available in the Windows Phone Store. If you were affected by this issue, please do not delete your app but go to the Windows Phone Store and download the latest update. This will fix the issue while preserving all of your past data. Thank you for your patience.
We discovered a bug in our Windows Phone app where starting in 2013, the calendar is hidden and the add note function is not working. Though you may not be able to see your past notes, they are safe as long as you do not delete your app from your phone.
We uploaded an update last night to the Windows Marketplace that fixes these issues. We are waiting for Microsoft to review and approve the update. In the meantime, please do not delete your app as this will cause you to lose your past information. When the update is available, please download it to fix the issue. We apologize for the inconvenience.
This past week we uploaded a 8.4 update for Period Tracker Deluxe (iOS). In this update we’ve added support for the iPhone 5 screen resolution (taller screen). We’ve also made several social improvements like adding a vote down button and adding the ability to add links to other posts in your post. We also fixed a lot of bugs.
Hopefully Apple will approve the update soon and it will go live immediately after approval.
We’re at work on an 8.3 update that will remove the add note confirmation page and allow users to hide the social tab. Sorry for the inconvenience. We’re planning to upload the update by 8/21 and receive approval from Apple about a 7-10 days after that.
