Preggie App Review (Enter to win a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Tablet!)

When I first found out I was pregnant, I downloaded so many pregnancy apps. But I have only used one or two out of the handful I downloaded. 

A week ago I was contacted my Preggie to try out their new app and write a review. Of course I jumped on this opportunity! Since I love finding new pregnancy apps. 

I don't know about you, but for me when I try a new app I always want it to be easy to understand. I hate downloading an app and it's way to confusing..which some pregnancy apps I've tried were way to confusing so I ended up deleting them. 

The Preggie app is pretty straightforward and easy to understand. And did I mention that this app is FREE! Most nice pregnancy apps you have to pay for and that really turns me off. So that's another plus in my book. As soon as you download it you create an account and it takes you to the homepage. 

You also have a timeline..that shows people all in your country that you choose and what they're posting. You can also follow others, so if you find someone who is close to how many weeks you are, you can follow them. 

You can also choose from different categories to read if you don't want so many different posts. 

The weekly updates are so fun and informative too! The main reason why I don't use just one app, is because most apps are a little different in what they explain that goes on in a new week.

A cool feature that I haven't tried yet, is you can chat with people who you follow. Even though I haven't tried it, I think it's a really cool feature that most apps don't have. 

The app is really laid out nice and just is really easy to use. You don't really have to guess where or what things are. 
Another awesome feature that the app has that a lot of others don't. Is called Live Moderation, users can tag @preggie in their posts asking just about anything and they're always there to help. 

I have only had the app for about a week. And only made one post but it's really interactive. A lot of people will comment/like your post. Most apps that I'm a part of I've seen some posts go unnoticed. If someone asked a question, no one would comment. But this app people seem more willing to help someone out or comment on their post. Which I really like that. It feels more like a community than a forum. 

**My one suggestion would be to make more categories based on pregnancy and babies. Like first, second, and third trimester topics. Let people create groups based on their due date. I have found that I really enjoy being part of groups with others that are due when I am. 

Overall I wish I had this app in the beginning of my pregnancy. But it's not just for pregnancy. Their are also moms on there. So you have support during your pregnancy and after the baby is here. I plan on keeping this app downloaded and I look forward to more changes and updates as it progresses! If you're pregnant, just had a baby, or even have a few kids, I recommend downloading this app and trying it! 

Want another reason to download the app? You could win a Lenovo Yoga 2 Tablet Pro! Who doesn't love a giveaway! All you have to do is download the Preggie App and invite your mom & mom-to-be friends!
