Drop in a couple of parts of hydrogen, stick on an oxygen atom, and Voila! Water. Nutritionists tell us to drink more water. Now there’s a way your Mac, iPhone, iPad, and now Watch can tell you to drink more water, and when. It’s a perfect little tool to keep you hydroized and moisturated (honestly; I heard that on a TV weather forecast recently).
W.C. Fields On Water
As good as we know water is for us, there are many who disdain the natural beverage. W.C. Fields said, “I never drink water because of the disgusting things that fish do in it.” I understand the sentiment.
For Mac users who slave over a hot keyboard all day, there’s the Water app which reminds you through the day to drink water and displays a nifty neato graphic so you can track your daily water intake.
Drink water, click Water and the graphic glass begins to fill up.
Water couldn’t be easier to drink and the Water app couldn’t be much easier to use. It comes with a Desktop Widget which displays the number of glasses of water you’ve had for the day. There’s a graphic display for how many glasses you’ve had each day of the week, too.
Once, during Prohibition, I was forced to live for days on nothing but food and water.
Water the app wouldn’t be cool if it didn’t have some graphic animation in it, so the wave in the app moves. Set your daily water intake goal, click the app to add a glass to your daily totals, then sit back and bask in the glow of good health (and worn carpet and tile all the way from your Mac to the bathroom). Water the app just screams for an iPhone version.
I never worry about being driven to drink; I just worry about being driven home.
Water also has an iOS app for iPad and iPhone and it works much the same way. Add a glass of water with a click to your Mac or a tap to your iPhone or Watch.
This is the perfect app to keep you hydroized and moisturated.
