iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
When it comes to staying healthy, one aspect that always seems to get neglected is hydration. In a world where we’re spoiled with sugary drinks and artificial flavors, it takes a truly dedicated person to trade flavor for pure water.
WaterMinder, a brand-new health app for iPhone, is designed to help you stay on top of your daily water intake. Developed by Funn Media, this is one app you should have on hand even if you’re not a fitness guru.
Concept and Functionality:
Most people don’t want to feel like a lab rat when using fitness apps, meaning fewer questions to answer about yourself tends to be a plus. WaterMinder simply asks for your name, gender, and body weight, then uses this information to calculate your recommended daily water intake. From there, all it takes are a couple taps to add to your daily log.
One of the first things I noticed about WaterMinder is how clean the design is. The app itself is incredibly simple and straightforward, and it’s obvious that it doesn’t deviate from the original goal of being a quick and easy way to track your hydration. It even features cool animations that add a bit of pizzazz to the interface.
For those of you who enjoy visual representations of data, WaterMinder gives you an immediate idea of how close you are to your daily water intake goal based on the amount of virtual water that’s inside the person on the home screen. If you tilt your iPhone from side to side, this virtual water moves around just like real water.
Even though WaterMinder was designed with simplicity in mind, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have a few cool features for those who are looking for a truly detailed tracking app. For example, there’s a handy water intake history page that keeps track of every entry you make. This way you can see how well you did at meeting or surpassing your suggested intake amount.
If you’d like to learn why proper daily hydration is so important, you can read up on the topic within WaterMinder. This informative guide teaches you almost everything you need to know about water and how it relates to the human body. While this isn’t required reading material, I definitely recommend checking it out.
Lastly, if you’re hesitant to download WaterMinder because you’re fearful of forgetting to track your intake, the app includes a useful reminder feature that is fully customizable. Thanks to this, you can forget about forgetting! Also, you can get a quick glimpse of your water intake percentage via the app notification badge on your iPhone’s home screen.
WaterMinder can be downloaded from the App Store for $0.99, which is an incredible value given what the app can do. You should be especially mindful of staying hydrated during the hot summer months, so in the words of Little Orphan Annie, “Be sure to drink your water!”
WaterMinder is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
