It was three years ago since my wife and I, moved by the Holy Spirit, decided to create a mobile application for the Billings Ovulation Method, with the idea that it could be free, supported in multiple languages and that it could help users and teachers to chart and to review charts in a more efficient way. We never imagined that this idea, which started as a small and simple project, would become one of the officially approved apps by Woomb International.
What motivated us to create an App?
At the beginning of 2017, by receiving our accreditation from Woomb Mexico®, we began teaching to a close community where we lived. At that point in time, when we tried to use the official approved apps, we found that either the app wasn’t in our language or that after a trial period, our users would be forced to pay a subscription fee to continue charting. This frustrated us since we knew most of our couples wouldn’t be able to afford this fee. That is how we started to formulate a plan to create a mobile application that could offer a free version where you can chart daily and have access to share your chart with an accredited teacher.
How and when was BillingsApp™ was approved by WOOMB International?
We began this project in September 2017, by March 2018 we presented it to our Director of Accredited Teachers, Benjamin Zamudio, who asked us to present it to our Woomb International Directors. The next month, we had the opportunity to do so during the International Congress 2018 held in Costa Rica. After presenting it to the directors, they gave us the authorization to use it for trials in Mexico. Six months later we officially opened the app in Mexico’s digital Stores (Google Play Store and Apple Store). At the beginning of 2019, the app was also opened in Guatemala. We were able to use the app in the Supervisor mode in Guatemala, and teachers in Mexico helped teachers in Guatemala to follow up user’s charts. Finally, at the beginning of this year, we started to work on a newer version that would allow us to support multiple languages and multiple countries. Finally, in September 2017, we presented the project to our directors in Australia who gave us their official approval.
What has been the reaction Worldwide?
BillingsApp™ is currently opened in 22 countries and in five languages. The number of users that are starting to download the app and use it is increasingly rapid. The community is receiving this app with very good and positive feedback. The majority feels this is a step forward and we have many countries waiting anxiously to open the app in their countries too.
What is the future of BillingsApp™?
We have been asked recently by our Woomb International Directors to open the app worldwide. Their desire is to allow women to decide which of the three official apps to use and not limit the app only to certain countries. So, in the last few weeks we have started to prepare the opening of the app in all. My wife and I really like this idea, and as the directors mentioned when they gave us their approval:
“We look forward to working with you to ensure that every woman on earth will be given the opportunity to use the Billings Ovulation Method®.”
