On August 2, this past Chinese Valentine’s Day (Qixi), Loving.fm (Chinese name Xiaoenai) added a period notification feature so that girls can inform their boyfriends of their periods. The app has recently launched an English edition in full swing.

Unlike period trackers Dayima and Meet You which specialize in fertility and pregnancy prevention, Loving.fm’s period notification “Aunt Flo” is a simple message board that shows timing of one’s period. Girls can then avoid the awkwardness of explicitly telling their boyfriends the ‘aunty’ has arrived, and mindless guys can now remember their girlfriends’ ‘time of the month.’

Most couple apps have standard features such as photo sharing, private messaging, diary, social network and other special in-app moments. Loving.fm also has a Sleep/Wakeup key to simulate saying good-night/making a morning call.
