WaterMinder® Positive Reviews
Apple watch dream!!I normally forget about drinking water or to engrossed in my work. I've tried apps for reminders but my phone does not always get my attention. I got an apple watch last week to replace my Fitbit last week and stumbled across this app in looking for fitness apps that give the best apple watch experience and I love it. I've had a streak of meeting and exceeding my 100 oz goal since I've gotten it. The watch app gives me the needed reminders and makes it easy to register immediately. Also, the fact that all drinks count, not just water makes this so much better. It's easier to hit my goal, so I feel better about it, have greater consistency, and am more conscious of how much of my liquid consumption is not water. Looking at you coffee! The design is great. The quick adds are the best. The only criticism are the models you use for your character. Greater variety here would be awesome. Could even make a game or of it by having customization where options are unlocked. The badges have my attention (I will get them all), and I'm curious of what I could chase as a mini game over I have them. Fun is in the name of the company, let's have a bit more with this app!
Highly recommended!!.Version: 3.4.1
Only logs waterIf you just want to log water than this app is easy. However, it gives you the option to log any beverage but the glitch is it counts all beverages towards your water goal. It’s a “hydrate” total that includes soda, coffee, and even energy drinks as hydration and that is completely incorrect. I did not try alcohol but I suspect it would be included as was because the app doesn’t differentiate the kind of beverage logged in the correct categories. Obviously soda is not hydration and alcohol would be the opposite of hydration. So, the developers need to fix this glitch. The app Calory is by far more advanced and costs $15 a year for the complete premium subscription. You can log water and it only applies water to water; all other beverages are logged separate. It also bar scans your food so counting calories is so easy!!! Use the free version if all you want is a water logger. If this app was to develop into an app like Calory I would try it again because of the ease of use. But, currently it would have a long way to go to complete with Calory. So, if you just want to log water only and nothing else then it’s a great app and very easy to use..Version: 4.1.7
Does what it’s supposed to do but I wish it was more dynamic.I can think of many things that can be done to make this app more dynamic and adaptable instead of just a simple app that acts as a log and sends you preset reminders. The most obvious one is to change your required daily intake based on your level of activity. iPhones and Apple Watches log your basic level of activity (distance walked, flights climbed, number of steps) and many people log their physical activity into the health app using different apps and activity trackers. Wouldn’t it be cool if the app accounted for that and upped your required water intake based on your level of activity each day? Other things the app can adapt for can be weight and body water % (I use a smart scale that automatically calibrates this info to my health app), weather (like a reminder to drink extra water on a hot day), and consumption of diuretic drinks as logged into the app. If the developers can incorporate these features into the app then they would really have a complete app that stands out from the rest..Version: 3.8.1
Slowly, yet beautifully changing my lifeThe first thing usually I worry about is having an alarm that tells me what to do because that would seem very annoying, however with this app I find myself enjoying every time the water reminder tells me “hey ! Its time to drink water” - also - having the flexibility to choose the best time to remind me is key.
realized that my water intake throughout the day is under the optimum level that works for me - it has just been a week and I have found out lots of changes with my taste pallets whereby the more water I drink the better I feel + the less sugary and salty food I crave.
This app certainly is simple, efficient and does the job - I also love the animations they use and Apple Watch reminders, beautiful graphics. Being a bit greedy here - maybe more of those graphics ? Cuz they’r amazing - I’d be really really be happier with it..Version: 3.8.1
My 1+ Year Usage ReviewI have been using this app for over a year now and it’s a very good app. However, it can be much better because anything consumed doesn’t always update the main screen. At this time, I need to tap History and tap Hydrate to see the updated totals. Next, how does one determine the hydration factor impact for soy milk because this doesn’t appear to be a standard option in the app? Furthermore, Reminders need to be simplified to something like every half hour, hour, and other value entered by the user. BTW, this could be similar to the Podcast app. Also, I should be able to receive these reminders only during certain interval during the day and the reminder should tell me how much to actually drink to meet my daily goal. It would be nice if I could say, ‘Hey Siri, log 8 oz of water’ or similar phrase but I know that Siri is very limited in its abilities to do anything at this time. In summary, this is a very good application for tracking my fluid intake per day but there are a few enhancements that I feel would make this app even better..Version: 4.1.6
Just get it - already.Finally, an App that is dedicated to helping remind me to drink the 3 liters (100 oz) a day that I need (Women get 2 L). Graphic is excellent and is an instant seller when folks want to know what that sound is....
Put it on your watch to capture every time you are beyond arms length from your phone- it makes for a accurate counting of those ounces.
I am on a Keto Diet and it essential that I get all of my 3 L in a day - or risk medical complications. I have tried counting the water bottles, buying a 2 L jug (but seriously- who wants to lug that around), even stacking my refrigerated water bottles on my desk just to have them come up to room temperature.... and am free of all that now. One glance of the icon on the corner of my watch dial and I know how much I drank and how much to go.
Developer: my only ask is to not prompt me to drink more when you know that I had a drink moments ago. For such an awesome App it would rate a 5 if you put in logic to know when I last had a drink and prompt me again from that time. Deducted a star..Version: 3.7.9
Nice but has problemsWidget does not work. Doesn’t stay updated as entries are made on other devices. True on iPhone and iPad. If you try to add an entry from a reminder on watch, it might work, and it might not. Sometimes it adds the entry correctly, sometimes it adds my top option, 8 oz water, even if I added another entry like 10 oz coffee. If I add an entry that way, I have to double check to make sure it added correctly. More times than not, I end up deleting the entry and adding it manually from the app on my watch. iPad app does not live update data. I have to open the app, force close it, and reopen before latest updates from other devices show up. Come on guys. I have lots of apps that share and merge cloud data from multiple devices. If they can get it right, so can you. From a single app perspective, if you only use the iPhone app to do all the activities (adding entries and viewing current hydration), it works satisfactorily...well, except for the widget. I’ve deleted the widget; it is just useless..Version: 4.2.5
Awesome! (Especially if you have kidney stones!)I was never a big water drinker. My grandmother always said I would be dehydrated. Well, that didn’t happen. But what DID happen was that due to my not drinking enough water, my kidneys were not able to eliminate the particles that build kidney stones. So two years ago I was hospitalized for kidney stones. To avoid it happening again, my doctor recommended drinking 1 gallon of water every single day.
So this app is PERFECT for me! It’s so easy to enter your goals and log in your drinks. At a glance you can see how you’re doing. Anyway, I love it and I RELY on it. That kidney stone all but crippled me, limited my movement due to pain. I remember that pain and this app helps me keep it from happening again.
So thanks to anyone who read my story about how much this app means to me, and many thanks and gratitude to those caring individuals who developed it..Version: 4.1.3
Dynamic reminders were a huge missed oppApp is slick and has a ton of configuration options to personalize the app, but the biggest feature I expected to find was dynamic reminders. I blindly trusted the app’s position on the health app leaderboard and bought it without researching it much, and that’s my fault. But the reminders are static, and I expected more from a $5 app. Having 50 icons to choose from for your water buttons is nice, but I’d rather have options with my reminder settings. I get plenty of notifications from my phone as it is. The default settings include 7 reminders throughout the day. I only want reminders if I’m falling behind and not trending toward 100%, but as it is, I’m going to get 7 reminders every day regardless of progress. I’d like to be able to set a reminder to trigger on certain criteria, for example if I haven’t logged anything in over 3 hours, or if it’s 2:00PM and I am not yet 30% of the way to my goal..Version: 3.7.9
Good for tracking. Reminders need to be smarterI use this app to track my water intake. You can also use it to track other hydration sources, like sports drinks. Difference being the percentage of the amount consumed counting toward your overall intake.
Example, 100 ml of water will count 100% of that. 100 ml of a sports drink will count for a little over 100% and alcohol less than 100%. I don’t agree with counting alcohol consumption towards hydration, so I don’t use the app for those beverages.
The reminders are the part of the app that are lacking. They simply remind you to drink water at specific times during the day. They do not take into account how much you have already consumed, when you consumed your last beverage, or how much you need to consume to reach your daily goal. This feature needs to be enhanced to consider those things. More than once I’ve been reminded to drink water after I just logged drinking 1 liter. :-(.Version: 3.5.3
Needs more A.I.I’ve had this app for years but rarely use it. I’m starting to use it more. The app and its use is great. Very easy to use. It WORKS. Never had issues with bugs. It’s handy for logging water in take, but that’s where it stops. It needs more. Please 🙏 can you guys update and improve your app to make it smarter and more useful for people and athletes by dipping into HealthKit data; use people’s metrics and fitness/activity data and calculate/compensate needed hydration levels based off people’s exertion instead of just a generic X-amount based off of gender, height and weight. To help prevent injury for athletes, people should know how much more hydrated they need to be for better recovery. And if people are drinking/logging tea/coffee/alcohol, that definitely does not count towards water in take or hydration; it depletes hydration..Version: 4.2.5
Wonderful App to UseEasy to use, loads of customizable features. Best ones are ability to create different drinks and their water content, choice of time of day for reminders, and the intelligence to stop reminding you when you’ve hit your daily goal. Getting 4 stars because reminders do not respect your recent inputs. I will log 24 oz of water at 8:58 and a reminder to drink water at 9:00. Dumb. Should have intelligent system to suppress reminders if you’re ahead of your goal, if you’ve logged intake within x minutes, and adjust your goal to consume x amount by a certain time. For example if I want to make sure I hit 100% of my goal between 8am and 8pm, the intelligent reminders should remind me to consume at an intelligent rate. I’ve been told they’re working on this feature set for this summer, but we’re mid way through and I haven’t seen it yet. Good app though. Works great with Apple Watch..Version: 4.1.10
Hydration Impact is a ProblemSo, I want to start off by saying that the app is really good other than this one issue. It’s very manageable and efficient.
However, different drinks don’t impact your hydration level as much as others.
If you look in the settings and go to “Hydration and Other Drink Types,” there is a chart at the bottom that tells the hydration impact of each type of drink. It would be really nice, but the values aren’t right.
For example, in the app, the hydration impact of soda is the same as water. They’re both set at 1.
Soda should have an impact of about .47 of what water has.
Juices should be at ~.55, not 1.
Energy drinks should be at .4, not 1.
Tea should be at ~.85, not 1.
These things don’t hydrate you nearly as well as water does.
That’s a pretty big issue in my opinion. I know that you can go through and add different drinks and change the coefficient of hydration of each one separately, but I shouldn’t have to do that or go and research the hydration impact of a particular type of drink every time I want to add something. I should be able to select the drink type and amount and the coefficient should be correct to begin with.
Other than that, I love the app.
It works great, looks great, and is very useful. If that one problem could be fixed it would be the perfect hydration app..Version: 3.6.1
It's okay...UPDATED... but no matter what I do I can’t get the app to sync the watch and phone data. I have brand new everything so it shouldn’t be an issue with outdated equipment. I could understand this perhaps if I hadn’t had to shell out money for the app. To be clear, I’ve read reviews and developer responses. The watch app does not sync with the iPhone. I’ve restarted both. Reloaded the app. Still no syncing. Very disappointed.
I’m not sure how it happened, but after a couple of weeks I noticed that the app was syncing. I had ready tried the developers fix after reading it on another review, and it hadn’t fixed the problem. As I said, I don’t know what changed (other than my opinion of the app). I am now very impressed..Version: 4.2.5
What I would like to seeThis app is great. Now that I’m drinking more water, I feel a lot better. Drinking more water to feel better is not a myth!
There are some things I’d like to see though. I’d like to see the liquid that fills up the avatar be different colors according to whatever I’m drinking (like a brown section to indicate coffee). I feel like this can help users track what they are drinking from a glance. Not only that, but say a person drinks 80% soda for a day. This can be a wake up call! I’d also like the notifications to not be so static. If I drink a glass of water 2 minutes before a reminder, I’d like the app to not remind me to drink water. It’s quite silly to get notified right after I logged a drink. Maybe create a window of opportunity. Say I took a drink 20 min before a reminder. Don’t remind me. Or create an option for users to set that window limit..Version: 3.6.1
Updated watch —>updated reviewI originally gave this app only 2 stars and a poor review based on poor syncing with my Apple Watch 3 and glitches in the iPad version. I recently replaced my watch with an Apple Watch version 6 and no longer have syncing problems. The app itself is well designed and is better than the others I downloaded, although it was the only one that didn’t let me use it in a limited fashion before I had to pay for it. It reminds me to drink, makes recording my intake easy, and I like the ability to design my own beverages and sort them my way. The iPad version still has to be restarted every morning in order to see my daily history, so I can’t give it 5 stars yet. When everything works as it’s supposed to, it will definitely be a 5 star app..Version: 4.2.3
Good app, some improvements possibleIn general, this is a great app for those of us who get busy during the day and forget to drink enough. I especially like that I can use it on the Apple watch. After using the app for a little over a week, I've noticed some things that could/should be improved on.
1. The reminders should be better timed. I keep getting mine right after I logged that I just had a glass of water. Obviously, that's the exact moment I don't need those reminders.
2. When I increase the temperature from cold to moderate, the app tells me to lower (yes, lower) my water intake. That doesn't make sense to me.
3. I wanted to see what the app would say if I drank an unhealthy amount and entered up to 9 liters (my recommended intake is 2.1l) and the app kept congratulating me on passing the recommendation.
But overall: good app..Version: 4.1.7
Notifications and RemindersI would have given this app a 5 star rating in a heartbeat, the design concept and functionality of the app is flawless. My only concern I have for this app is the notifications. I own an iPhone XS and Apple Watch 4 that I keep updated regularly, but for some reason the application fails to send me notifications properly, regardless of how many times I turn off notifications/reminder both in my Settings and inside the app itself. I have also shut down my phone and watch countless times to see if this would help, but it hasn’t sent me several notifications when I have them set as custom as well. If there was a way to improve this function it would be greatly appreciated and I would change my rating back to a 5 Star..Version: 3.7.9
Just what the Dr. (would have) ordered!Best water app I could find!! Two expensive kidney stone procedures, and now I am VERY motivated to drink all my water every day! Kidney needs to clear 2 liters of water a day to stay healthy, so I figure if 2 is the minimum, go for 3, and if don’t quite make it I’m still likely to hit 2. 3 liters is 101 ounces, so setting goal to 100 ounces easily tells me exactly how many ounces I have left to drink via the percent indicator. Every time I resist drinking all my water, I remember being in the hospital, and I remember paying thousands of dollars. So, drink water when I don’t want to, or pay thousands of dollars out of pocket. Hmmm, tough choice... Thanks WaterMinder for keeping me present to my options!.Version: 3.8.1
I love this app and highly recommend it!!I have been using this app for 10 months and I have met my hydration goal every day. The reminders are great (I love the one that sounds like liquid pouring into a glass!!). My skin looks great and I feel fantastic. I have a spill-proof Contigo water bottle that I take with me everywhere (another high recommendation!). I start my day drinking 20 ounces of water before I get out of bed. It gives me a strong start. I knows it’s silly but I get a kick out of watching the water level raise throughout the day on the figure that illustrates my hydration level! The app developers did a fantastic job with this app. I wouldn’t change a thing. Highly recommended!!.Version: 3.7.2
LackingSeveral features leave much to be desired. It helps remind you, and track, when you ingest liquid - yay! 3 stars for CRUD app. Let’s get it to 5 stars by fixing some lazily implemented features. If it’s 2 mins to the hour, I just recorded I drank something, and there’s a reminder set for the hour - do not remind me 2 mins later. There should be a “grace period” so I’m not flooded with needless reminders (reason I uninstalled the first time). Next, not all liquids are created equal. Diuretics and liquids that dehydrate the body should be weighted as such in the percentage toward goal. After all, I am concerned with my body’s hydration level, not ability to ingest liquid. Next, the slider on the phone app for changing ounces is annoying - MyFitnessPal took care of recording this better (take a look a their implementation). Good luck!.Version: 3.7.2
People are always forgettingMe personally, I always forget to dring enough water. This app perfectly matches what I was in need to. You make put your drinking goal per day, then it reminds you. Also the app supports Siri! Very nice simple design makes you to enjoy your experience with the app.
First when I downloaded the app before several years, I didn’t listen to it’s notifications. Last week I had to call emergency ambulance because I had a deadly very strong pain resulting kidney stone! Then I am back to the app, not to suffer from that pain ever again.
Thank you app team for making this brilliant app for keeping peoples healthy!.Version: 4.1.5
“Water” nice app!(The header’s a pun. It’s okay to grin.)
I really like this app because it is an effective way for me to keep a fairly accurate record of my fluid intake. I also like that it works with my Apple Watch, which makes keeping track of how much water I’m drinking throughout the day much simpler, having set reminders to my watch. However, the reason I did not give a five star rating is because the greatest quantity of liquid that can be logged at one time is 36 oz, and my Hydro Flask is 1.1 L (40 oz), so I have to log two separate fluid entries at the completion of one bottle’s worth of water. It would be much simpler to use if there were the option to log greater values of fluid than limiting the users greatest intake to 36 oz..Version: 3.4.1
No longer works on Series 1 WatchI loved this app since finding it last year. It was so easy to keep track of how much fluids I had had during the day. However, since June 13th, 2019, shortly after the WWDC, the complication no longer works on the Series 1 Watch. I can still add things in on my iPhone but it was so much more convenient on my Watch. I know the Series 1 is getting old but couldn’t the developers have made it compatible just a little longer? Oh well, maybe this is a hint that it’s time to upgrade.
Update: Developer contacted me with instructions on how to fix this. And it works! Thanks Funn Media..Version: 3.8
A Stellar, Motivational AppWaterMinder is among the apps I use most both on my phone and my watch. Being able to log drink types other than water—and having their hydrating effect calculated automatically—is extremely helpful, as is the ability to log drinks on Apple Watch. WaterMinder comes the closest to achieving parity of core features between the watch and phone, and its complication has been on my watch face since the day I got an Apple Watch. The app’s support is also terrific—I found a minor bug in the app, contacted the developer, and less than three days later it was fixed. I highly recommend this app!.Version: 3.6.1
Life ChangerFor years, I was an individual who only drank water when I felt thirsty. Consequently, I have paid dearly by having to deal constantly with Kidney Stones. Women say having a baby is painful, apparently they've never passed a Kidney Stone!! LOL Ever since I've been using this program, my level of Hydration has increased 10 fold and I'm on the road to recovery. Definitely a life changer in my particular situation. However, the last update had messed up the visual display so that it doesn’t work correctly! Contacted the App support and they are extremely difficult to deal with. They want you to fix their problems!!!.Version: 4.1.3
Great designThis app does two things really well that make it perfect for my use.
1) it fully integrates with HealthKit, so my other apps like LoseIt! can pull the water data. That means I don’t have to go into LoseIt! to enter any water I drink.
2) it operates effortlessly straight from a complication on the Apple Watch. This is big because honestly it solves the problem that so many apps have like LoseIt! Sure LoseIt! has an Apple Watch app, but it’s basically a glorified display. Almost not entry can be done from the Apple Watch side. Getting my phone out a few times a day to enter food is ok with me, but every time I drink is not. WaterMinder solves this!.Version: 3.8.1
Best App Out ThereI don’t leave many reviews but I can’t help but compliment the developers of this app! Besides the app being 100% functional and doing exactly what it’s meant for, the customization capabilities in the settings are phenomenal! I’ve never seen an app that went above and beyond the normal functionality like this one. You can tell the developers know what they are doing and are very professional. I cannot believe how you can customize the way the app icon and colors of everything look. The watch customizations and complications are the coolest thing! I highly recommend this app!! Keep up the great work!.Version: 4.0.1
I’m finally drinking enough waterThanks to this app, I’m no longer dehydrated.
Badly needed improvement: if you log hydration, it’s really annoying to get a reminder two minutes later that it’s time to hydrate. It can’t be that difficult to program it do this doesn’t happen.
It would be great if metrics could be introduced, such as you’re on track to get all your water in, you’re currently only 15% of your goal. Make sure you complete hydration a couple hours before bedtime, etc. There have been a few times I’ve realized I’m 30 ounces behind two hours before bedtime. It would be great for the app to have this enhanced functionality..Version: 4.2.8
I’m ImpressedPeople put some work into creating this app! I did not expect $5 and a $1 tip to the Tip Jar to afford me so many things that I would be excited about. I woke up excited about starting a journey to improve my health, and this app adds to my motivation. From the easy, thorough, attractive interface to the cute stuff (the characters), I feel really prepared and motivated to take better care of myself. This app checks all of my boxes and will definitely stay in my arsenal of tools to stay on track and heal from ailments. I can’t thank the creators enough. You guys did a good thing. Be proud. God bless..Version: 4.2.8
One of the only apps I use consistently!I’ve tried so many habit apps and I absolutely love this one. I’ve found other apps to be way too detailed and inaccessible. WaterMinder is way more user friendly and it’s fun to use! As an added bonus, it has a complication for the Apple Watch which is very helpful. I began to realize that I don’t drink enough water throughout the day and this app really helps me keep my water intake in check. I use this app as much as I use instagram. I hope the creators make more useful and fun apps in the future! Happy drinking (ahem...drinking water to be exact) ;)..Version: 3.7.8
Please bring back old widgetAfter iOS 14 updates, the new widget for adding your drinks, opens the app... the old one did not, was perfect! Now it's terrible because it loads the app every time and, if I wish to open the app, I would not need a widget! Please bring the old one back or just make it work as supposed to, from the widget! Thanks!
Thanks for your response. The old widget is actually back, don't know how... but now I see I can manage/edit/change the quick icons. I remove/add and nothing happens. It doesn't change... don't know if it's a bug or if it's setup like that and you can't edit the quick actions..Version: 4.2.3
Buggy for such a simple appI love the app and as much as I hate to say this, for the level of complexity of what the app does, it should operate flawlessly. Yet it doesn’t. The bug that annoys me the most is logging and display of current intake. For example, when I press to log 8oz of water, I hear the sound but the app doesn’t display the increase unless pressed multiple times. It’s been the issue with probably past 3-4 updates and yet it’s still happening. I also agree with poor synchronization with Apple watch like other users mentioned. I’m about to install the app at this point. No offense, but the essence of the app is to remind user to drink, log and display intake accurately..Version: 4.1.3
Doing something Today My Future Self Would Be Proud ofI like this app so far, I saw the free apps that were similar but I’d chosen to pay for this one and I don’t regret it at all. Before this app I hardly drink any water at all but now I’m at 196oz a day, I’ve learned so much and I’m still learning. I’ve searched and what do you know my favorite Water App is being quoted, used or referenced and if that doesn’t show show me that I made the best choice by choosing it what else would. I’d recommend this app to anyone who’d like to also try and make their future self proud.Version: 3.4.1
UI interface for adding custom drinkOnly one thing that I think could have been design better. When you press other to add customizable drink/size, plus sign that you use to increase amount (if you don’t use slider) and plus sign that you actually press to add that to your list, are too close together. And since they are both plus signs, they are confusing. Most of the time when I want just increase amount I press big and prominent plus and add what ever was last selected.
Please just move that button at the bottom, under the rotating dials. Or change the name of the button to “add”.Version: 4.2.8
The fourth ring I have to close every dayMy earlier complaint about syncing between watch and phone seems to be resolved (1. Delete app from watch, 2. Reboot watch and phone, 3. Reinstall watch app, 4. Open app on phone, 5. Open app on watch). So that will really help fixing entry errors I make on the watch (although lag on the watch is generally the cause of those errors, and fixing them on my watch would be even better).
Also, I have enough different sized water bottles, cups, glasses, and drink types that I really need the Siri shortcuts at least to be unbound by the UI limitations of the watch and iPhone apps..Version: 3.8.1
A bug that is starting to become a real pest.This is by far my favorite water tracking app but I’ve ran into a constant issue that prevents me from pressing the quick add button on the iPhone. If I click the button write next to the + button then I can manually add whatever ounces but for some reason the moment I click on the quick add button; it crashes.
I was recommended by the app developer to remove drinks and try re-adding them? That also didn’t work. Anytime I press the plus button it crashes. I also recently just got the 12 pro on the latest IOS. My original issue was occurring when I had the 11 pro..Version: 4.2.3
Great AppGreat app! However, I recently updated to iOS 14 with the new widgets in the today view. Before, I could simply hit a button and the hydration would apply. Now I hit the button, point the phone at my face to unlock it, and wait for the app to launch. Sometimes, my phone is laying down, and the today view is/was great for quick actions on the phone without picking it up and fully investing in phone time. Is there a way to add back the functionality of not needing to unlock the phone and launch the app for today widget actions?.Version: 4.2.5
Great app for reminding you to stay hydrated.This app does a great job reminding me to stay hydrated. Since the human body can technically be dehydrated well before you start to notice, I’m grateful for every notification I receive.
I also love how easy this app is to use from my Apple Watch. A simple tap of the compilation, or Siri command makes logging each drink easier.
My only advice would be to add more options for beverages. Almond milk is nowhere to be found, even though it’s a popular alternative to dairy. I hope to see this one added soon..Version: 4.1.3
Actually using itI always think the key to apps like this is usability — let’s face it, anything that slows me down or over complicates things is never going to become habit. So far this is great. Super fast and easy to log my usual drinks, and (maybe more importantly) almost as fast to add something out of the norm. Tracking my progress by watching my guy fill up with water is a fun touch — shows the attention to detail that makes me respect the developers. Nice work. One of the only “self help” apps I’ve looked at that I continue to use..Version: 4.0.2
Excellent, easy-to-use, and integrates with HealthThis app is great. It's really easy-to-use, but it's also next meet customizable. I've been drinking a lot more water because of the app, honestly. Also, it's got a great design that makes it feel right at home on an iPhone (you can't say the same for a lot of other food-tracking apps). The Apple Watch app is also pretty useful, and the stickers are cute.
My only suggestion would be to make sure that previous records aren't erased when you increase your daily goal..Version: 3.4.1
Very revealingDehydration is one of my migraine triggers so I use the app to make sure I’m properly hydrated. Was surprised to discover on work days I drink about 50% less which explains some of the migraines. Still struggle on those days but knowledge allows corrective action. Hope the developers add nut milk at some point.
Update: In Settings > Other Drinks a custom drink can be added however one would have to research the hydration factor (or take a guess). A very limited search seems to indicate hydration factor affected by at least the sodium content..Version: 4.2.8
Please bring back icon badgeThis is a great app for tracking hydration. It has good syncing with Apple health and other platforms. Great Apple Watch app.
With any tracking app we are relying somewhat on the gamification of health data. The app used to have a badge to remind you either how much you had consumed or how much you still needed to hit your goal. For some reason that option is gone now. Not having the badge to remind you really takes away from the purpose of the app. It’s nice to have the badge rather than reminder banners every hour. Bring back the badge please..Version: 3.6.1
Good app but could use some improvementsI LOVE this app but there could be some small improvements made to this application.
1. The ability to statistically track your fluid intake and compare it from one day to the next within that day. (For example when I drank the last glass of water.
2. The ability to allow me to track my fluid intakes and withdrawals for instance if a drink a diuretic drink like coffee which I love to do the app could show me how much water I need to drink to offset the coffee I drank to prevent dehydration. Other than that it’s a good app and I thank Apple for making the application..Version: 4.3.3
Great app, no need for 1/10th of an OZ incrementsThis is the perfect hydration app, except for one thing: there is absolutely no need to increment entries by one TENTH of an ounce! It should be increments of ONE FULL ounce.
This makes it needlessly tedious to enter amounts. For example, the slider is super sensitive, so you commonly give up trying to select the amount you want and if you miss it by +0.9 you have to tap the decrement button NINE TIMES to get to the amount you want to enter. I've scoured the settings and can't find anything to resolve this. If they fix it by making increments 1oz instead of 1/10th, then it would be five stars from me..Version: 4.2.3
Great appExcellent integration with Apple watch. Simple but full of features needed for hydration tracking. Highly recommend..Version: 3.7.8
Great app!All because of this app I’m able to drink adequate amount of water to stay hydrated. I can log on my Apple Watch and MacBook.Version: 4.3.4
Almost what I wantI have this on my iPhone and watch. Before having this, every morning on my way to work, I would remember that I needed to drink at least 2.5 L that day.
Every evening, on my way home from work, I would remember that I failed to drink my water that day. Since I installed this I have not had a single day in which I drank less than 2.5 L of water.
So why is it not what I want?
Frequently, the app reminds me to drink water minutes after I have reported to it that I just drank 300 mL or 500 mL of water.
When the app become smarter and gives me reminders based on time and when I most recently reported that I drink water it will be what I truly want.
For now, I appreciate that I am remaining hydrated, even with the minor irritation of the app not being smart..Version: 4.2.3
Best Hydration Reminder AppI love this app. It's intuitive and simple to use. The app is very attractive and makes something add mundane as drinking water actually fun. Kudos to the designers of this app. They have done a masterful job. Better yet, they release frequent updates to correct and bugs and keep the app fresh..Version: 4.3.3
Loving the new coffee update!Finally! All my drinks on one place! Thank you!!!.Version: 4.3
Thank youThank you for not making this a crazy money grab app like the others. Love having Apple Watch support! Makes this a fun easy way to track my water intake. And a huge thank you for not tracking. Other water apps track precise location, and that turns me right away. Respect for privacy, Apple Watch support, no ads, optional tip jar; you guys rock! 5/5 rating for sure..Version: 4.2.5
Not that flexibleCan’t seem to make corrections. Annoying..Version: 4.2.8
MehI report on my watch 24oz of water and the app then reports 6 times 24oz. You try to remove one from the app and they all are deleted. Great app on the watch. At least it’s accurate..Version: 4.2.7
Needs some workData updates to your other iOS devices is slow or none existent please check and fix please.Version: 4.2.6
Nice but ...I used to have another app but saw yours was nicer and potentially better ... I was willing to pay the price, and so far it’s good. Unfortunately, even if you can configure coffee, it is not maintaining the caffeine levels in the health app. You should be able to customize variables on the drinks (caffeine, sugar) so it feeds these values just like the water levels.
I love the customization of cup sizes and variety, but I still need to manually input my caffeine mg% ....Version: 4.2.6
Simply ExcellentDear Readers,
I have used multiple apps to record my intake may it be food, nutrients (micro/macro), recorded calories, even though this app is not meant for that, it is in fact simple enough to be used at a daily basis.
It does have many functions but the best part is that it’s simply designed enough to be not complicated. If you are utilizing this app for medical purpose, it’s the best thing you can do. It does not have ads and other on the face distraction let me be useful or not.
It lets you focus on making sure that you get the right amount of liquid intake you need daily.
It has a super simple way to see your data and stats and make it’s harder for you to input previous data which makes you even more attentive to record your intake daily and accurately.
I have bought this long time ago, and forgot to use it, but recently the auto targeting based on your weight, temperature and activity level, it helped me to improve my health.
I don’t like subscriptions because rarely they are affordable in the long term of these sorts of apps but trust me, if there is paid update which I have to do to get more functions every year or so, I would go for it.
I am grateful I got and bought this app a long time ago..Version: 4.2.4
Great app butGreat app but I think it should go a little beyond just water for the 7 bucks CAD you pay for it. Maybe add data collection on caffeine, calcium etc. Plus you already have coffee, milk etc. With the app so could you just register it to the apple health app with the appropriate amount of ex: caffeine in a cup of 250 ml of coffee to the health app..Version: 4.2.5
Almost ThereI have it three stars because of just one reason; the app registers several drinks besides water but it remarks the ability to track coffee BUT it won’t register caffeine levels with Health app. This is a must have and kinda confusing too, only after purchase one can realize that it won’t do it the right way. Besides that the app it’s flawless, I just think I was left without one important feature..Version: 4.2.5
Doesn’t remember what I enteredSeems like this latest version every time I enter that a Dean water, the next time I open the app to enter more it says I haven’t entered anything please fix very annoying.Version: 4.2.4
Perfect for Kidney transplant !As a recent kidney transplant patient, i had to mesure every ML of drink i ingest. This app is so well done and easy to use, but yet offer so much options to customize your experience. Its very well crafted, never crashed and looks pretty good on the user interface side. And also, the options to use an apple watch link to the iPhone app is amazing, and work perfectly. I strongly recommend it !.Version: 4.2.3
Excellent hydration appThis app reminds me when to rehydrate and with the widgets and Apple Watch support makes it much easier to stay hydrated! I would highly recommend this app!.Version: 4.2.2
WidgetGreat app. Widget has reverted back to old style. Is there a way to activate new widgets?.Version: 4.2.1
Love the widgets for iOS 14!The widgets are excellent. I love the easy access to log my water intake!.Version: 4.2.1
Great app!Very user-friendly and fun to use..Version: 4.2.1
Super**Retour rapide et efficace. Merci beaucoup. Tout fonctionne à merveille!**
Cela fait un certain nombre de mois que l’app bug. Il m’est impossible d’ajouter mes consommations d’eau à même la montre. L’app s’ouvre mais par la suite l’écran fige. Il fait que je passe par l’iphone pour ajouter mes consommations. Please fix it. Iphone 7 et Apple Watch 3. Merci..Version: 4.1.10
Not syncData on iPhone and Apple watch are different. I added a data on Apple watch but it didn't come to my iPhone..Version: 4.2.1
Transformed my health, but watch app laggyTracking my water intake has utterly transformed my health - thank you!
I have two issues with the app. First, the reminders to drink water aren’t “smart” — they just go off at the prescribed time, even if you just downed 500ml. I’d love if they would remind me when I haven’t drank water in a while and I’m still behind my daily goal.
Secondly, and more frustrating, is a lag in the corresponding watch app. The first tap of the day is quick, but subsequent taps often seem to freeze, and then I tap again thinking it didn’t register, only for it to “catch up” a few seconds later and double count my drink. This is also the only app I’ve ever had to force kill on the watch since it sometimes dies altogether.
3/5 stars primarily for the lagginess. Still the best available from what I can find..Version: 4.1.10
The best water intake tracker/reminderI’ve used a bunch of these water reminder apps, trying to find my favourite. All the others had either monthly paid subscriptions, malfunctioning features, or poor support with infrequent updates.
WaterMinder is fantastic, and worth the one-time price. The widget works, and is customizable. Siri Shortcuts work. All kinds of drinks besides water are included, which add to your hydration level appropriately (not just a 1:1 ratio with water, like some apps). It’s been around a long time, and updates are regular.
Reminders are customizable, and include pleasant alert sounds. The customization options for the UI are useful, and there is a dark mode, which you can choose to toggle on permanently or automatically depending on the time.
As an intersex person, the gender requirement is confusing, as I’m not sure what to choose, or what difference it makes. Perhaps a more specific option might be better, like a slider for metabolism (or whatever bodily function that’s actually being used for the gender option). An androgynous avatar in the default UI would be nice too, but the alternative UI doesn’t have an avatar, and it’s ultimately a very minor complaint.
I’m very happy with this app!.Version: 4.1.10
BeneficialSeems like a dumb idea but it worked for me. Watch reminds me to drink and I do it.
It is also true that it works with the other health apps..Version: 4.1.10
Reminder FeatureWhat sold me was the reminder feature and it also goes right to my Apple Watch..Version: 4.1.7
Great but not great for my watchTh app works great, even with minor bugs. That being said, it kills the battery on my watch if I use it as a complication. I’ve done all the steps to fix it to no avail..Version: 4.1.10
MarvelousIt’s a very practical app.Version: 4.1.5
Not worth the moneyThe app works ok; I haven’t experienced any bugs yet. But for what it does, it would be overpriced at $3. Really not worth $6..Version: 4.1.5
Great appA lot of customization of drinks, your character, reminders etc. 👍🏻👍🏻 Really good way to remember to drink water 💦.Version: 4.0.6
Great app but not perfectI would definitely recommend this if you are wanting to drink more water on a regular basis. Overall the app on the phone and Apple Watch is great and what you would expect. Not a fan of the additional purchases on top of paying for the app. This business practice resembles the video game extra dlc type thing. Not cool at all but otherwise great app and I hope to see fun and interactive future free updates..Version: 4.1.5
Great!This app is great to keep track of how much water you drink. Love how it connects to Apple Watch. Only thing is I wonder why, after spending $7 on the app, that we still have to pay MORE to unlock characters? I believe that $7 is a hefty app price as it is. Not sure if I would purchase again... probably would just stick to a free app since the extra fun options on this one cost more money..Version: 4.1.5
GreatI really like the app, the only problem is that the the Apple Watch version of it doesn’t update, in particular the value of water intake does not reset on a new day, so I’m still seeing the value from yesterday. Can you please fix this? Thanks
UPDATE: it works actually, the complication updates when you open the phone app.Version: 4.0.4
Works great with the Apple WatchExcellent app works very well with the Apple Watch. You can customize the amounts you drink. Based on my body measurements it asks me to drink what seems like a ton of water. If I try to satisfy the recommended water intake dictated by the app I will constantly visit the the washroom. Other than that it is a very simple app which meshes well with the Apple Watch and health app..Version: 4.0.3
GreatDid not work initially as I wanted. E mailed support who responded immediately and explained and sorted all out. Great service Kriss !.Version: 4.0.3
Great!I always forget to drink water.Version: 4.0.1
Data glitch with health appEasy to use but it repeats the data in the health app multiple times. I’ll drink one cup and I can see that up to four entries are made in the health app..Version: 4.0.1
Edit a Drink in Your History? Can’t anymoreSo the folks at WaterMinder updated their
app! Nice... But to edit a drink in history used to be explained by them. No more; neither online nor the AppStore. Hello??!! You come out with a new car and don’t tell buyers that the gas pedal is on the left, the clutch pedal is in the middle and the break pedal is on the right?? Hello WaterMinder.... should you not have anticipated this? Whoever dropped the ball needs to spend a day in ‘propeller head’ jail. Thank you. Follow up: I was able to figure out how to edit history (swipe up on screen). Wish you had kept the line graph display instead of the new bar chart..Version: 4.0.2
ImprovingThe last update seems to have solved the syncing issue I was having between the Apple Watch and iPhone, however, the watch’s complication still doesn’t match the app on either the watch or phone. For example, the complication will show 12% complete while the phone and watch app show 17% complete..Version: 4.0.1
