App of the Week — Drip: Hydration Tracking

Drip, a hydration tracker designed by developer Kyle Genoe, is a simple way to log the water you drink. It’s an app that employs simplistic features to help you track your water consumption.

There’s no clear answer to how much water a person should consume each day, but its clear that it is absolutely essential to humans.

Your body depends on water to survive, with every cell, tissue and organ in your body needing water to work properly. It gets rid of waste, keeps your temperature normal, and protects sensitive tissues, to name a few of the vital things water does for us.

Lack of water can lead to dehydration which can drain your energy and make you tired, and can leave your body vulnerable to illness.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine determined that an adequate daily fluid intake is 3.7 litres for men or 2.7 litres for women.

Although its estimated you get about 20% of their daily fluid intake via food and other drinks, many people do not reach this recommended amount, and negligence is one of the key factors.

With Drip, you can record each glass or bottle of water you drink and get on with your life. No account is required for the app, there’s no annoying reminders, and no excessive charts; Drip is just a fast way to record something so vital to our well being, and makes sure to not overcomplicate the process.

The app integrates with Apple’s Health app, that comes pre-installed on iPhones. Drip allows you to create three different customizable drink sizes, allowing you cater to your particular habits. You can also change the unit of measurement.

Drip – Hydration Tracker is available for free on the App Store.
