“Periodical” is a calendar to calculate the fertile days according to Knaus-Ogino. One motivation was to create an application which does not have any “gimmick” – no flowers or other decorations, as seen on other calendars of this kind, but reduced to the essential functionality.
WARNING: It is not recommended to use this calendar to avoid pregnancy! There are more accurate methods, like measuring the basal body temperature.
It is possible to backup all data to a memory card or “internal” memory, if present.
