Top 10 Best Condom Apps

By

Updated April 07, 2014

As we become more reliant on technology, useful phone apps are more important than ever. Given the popularity of birth control apps, sex apps, and fertility apps, it would only make sense that condoms apps are in demand as well. After doing some exhaustive searches, it is my pleasure to present my list of the best condom apps.

Keep in mind, even though these condom apps can be useful, these condom apps are intended recreational or informational use. Where applicable, these apps should do not take the place of talking to your doctor. Also, most of these condom apps have an age restriction, so in order to download them, you may have to be a certain age.

3. iCondom

Price: FREE
Platform: Compatible with iPhone, iPod, and iPad

MTV Staying Alive has partnered with iCondom to release the iCondom app, with the mission to create the world's largest condom distribution map for iPhone (the first user-generated map of its kind). This condom app was created to help fight and prevent the transmission of STIs like HIV and AIDS. iCondom is the only international app for iPhone that can locate condom dispensers nearest to you, as well as show you their locations on a map. Additional features of this condom app include:

  • Being able to rate and comment on condom dispensers (e.g., if the machine is out of order or out of stock), so that others can have up-to-date information on the quality of the condom dispenser.
  • The ability to add new condom dispenser locations directly from this condom app. You can also indicate stores that sell condoms and what their operating hours are.
  • With the iCondom app, you can search (using your GPS) for the nearest place that sells condoms.
The amazing feature of this birth control app is the teamwork behind it. Much of its success will be dependent on the people who use it, since the information will be crowd-sourced (provided by you). Through everyone's contributions to the user-generated condom distribution map, iCondom hopes that this app will inspire a supportive community with the goal of getting rid of the taboo of buying condoms. The larger this map grows (with the hopes of becoming global), the more people will easily be able to find condoms and hopefully avoid the risk of catching HIV and STIs (as well as unintended pregnancy).

Price: FREE

Are you a condom pro? This condom app is actually a game designed to test your condom skills. The app was created because many people do not really know how to properly use a condom (even though they think they do!). Though condoms are the only birth control method to offer STI protection, if you don’t put them on the right way, it doesn’t matter how effective they can be. Additional features of this condom app include:

  • Allows you to unwrap condoms and practice putting them on and taking them off random objects, like candle sticks, popcorn, suntan lotion or flowers.
  • Teaches you how to open a condom (don't rip it!).
  • Offers useful condom information while playing.

Though Condom Pro is really just a game, people have reported that it is clever, fun to play, has great sound effects and graphics, and provides helpful information and practice.
