PROS CONS 

✔ Basic symptom tracking (free).

✔ View blog articles written by non-health professionals (free on the website, paid in the app).

✔ Menopause forum (paid).

✘ Expensive at NZ $15.99 a month.

✘ Some concerns with the articles:
 - No apparent input from health professionals.
 - Many opinion pieces with varying amounts of medical information. The medical information is generally accurate but often incomplete.
 - Some may find the articles offensive due to the extensive use of colourful language and ranting nature. However, this may suit other readers.

✘ Some concerns with the forum:
 - It doesn’t appear to be moderated.
 - It is not very active, likely partly due to the cost barrier, with around 60-odd threads of varying quality.
 - There are no date or time stamps.
 - There appears to be little benefit of using this over a social media group such as a menopause Facebook group.

✘ The tracking feature is poor compared to other apps, eg, you can’t view any graphing within the app, you can’t add custom symptoms and there is no medication section.
