I'm using the 'health & parenting' one but I don't think its that great-I want one that is more specific on typical symptoms, day to day stuff and other useful information, maybe what to buy etc?
Which ones do you use?

I have a few!! Haha. I like the weekly images on the Health and Parenting one but that's about it!

Nurture has info daily which is nice and it also has posts from people after each bit, usually showing bumps, scan pics, talking about symptoms etc. It's is American and a lot of the posts are from a while ago but that doesn't bother me. I also really like The Bump for weekly info, it's also a lot slicker than other ones - looking forward to the 12 week update tomorrow!!

I'd be interested to hear what others use.

I agree re. Nuture. I also like the Ovia one (mainly because you can change the theme of the size of your baby each week between fruit/veg, bakery, fun/games and animals)

thanks, I'll check those out, I'm not so keen on the U.S ones but its harder to find a good app than I thought!

Completely agree, ladies! I use bump but have also used the H&P ... as well as a whole host of others (...which I've gone on to delete)! Anyone else feel as though we're seriously lacking a good UK based app? The bump is great but all the medical appointment touch-points are specific to the US system and therefore irrelevant (& a bit annoying/confusing).
Would be v intrigued to hear of any other UK mums recommendations.

If there are any app developers out there reading, there could be quite a money-maker here!! Or maybe that's a mat leave project for me...what with all the spare time I'll have wink haha

Bean you're so right! I would like a U.K based app which has lots of photos, a week by week section, and a timeline of when to do what i.e when to tell your midwife and things like you have to self refer because I didnt know!

I just looked at Nuture and its not for me-too American and too twee, Im trying Ovia but will look at the Bump too.
