Description

You don’t have to make a change to your drinking habits alone, MyDrinkaware is your in-pocket support system, whenever you need it most. From the UK’s leading alcohol education charity, Drinkaware’s free alcohol tracker app is the first step in changing your drinking habits and leading a healthier life.

With the Drinkaware unit calculator app you can:

- See how your drinking compares to previous weeks
- Check how many units or calories are in each drink
- Highlight when you might be at risk of binge drinking
- Set goals to help you moderate your drinking over time
- Understand the link between alcohol and sleep quality
- Plan and celebrate drink-free days
- Set manageable, realistic goals to help make those positive changes stick

Getting started on cutting back is one of those things that’s easy to put off but why not start today?
Download the app to get started now.
Whatever your goal, you can do it with MyDrinkaware.

There are lots of benefits to cutting back your drinking or even stopping drinking alcohol completely. Your sleep can improve, your mood will be brighter, you’ll find it easier to concentrate and there are lots of long-term health benefits, to name a few.

MyDrinkaware is different from other apps on the market. Other apps allow you to track your drinking habits, but that’s all they do. By tracking units, drink-free days, and sleep quality, side-by-side, MyDrinkaware guides users towards a healthier lifestyle.

Have you ever considered cutting down on drinking before but not known where to start? MyDrinkaware is built to guide realistic lifestyle changes. Setting unmanageable goals can often lead to giving up altogether. That’s why MyDrinkaware is different:

- Our app celebrates your wins with you!
- We provide personalised support to help you reach your targets.
- Beyond logging drinks, you can also track drink-free days.
- With MyDrinkaware, you can track your sleep quality, to see how it improves over time as you cut down on alcohol consumption.
- Our app allows you to log drinks by name and by type - such as wine or spirits - detailing the size of the drink, and, of course, how many you’ve had.
- You can set achievable goals for yourself and manage lifestyle changes at your own pace, to keep you motivated.

The MyDrinkaware app helps you to review your drinking patterns and to set your own goals. Most importantly, the app is always on hand, at the times and places you need it the most.

MyDrinkaware offers personalised results and takes control of all the sums, to provide simple, comparable data. With clear visual aids, you can watch your alcohol consumption reduce in the palm of your hand.

Download MyDrinkaware now - it’s time to go from thinking about cutting back, to enjoying life while drinking less.

Disaster averted

SECOND UPDATE
Have been using for a few weeks now. It’s alright, it works. But too many taps. Recording a common drink should be a single tap on the homepage to add a single drink to today. Instead it’s tap “record drink” tap the drink - if it’s one on the random shortlist, otherwise type it in to the search bar…! - tap how many, tap save. Too many taps, makes it very clunky when it’s something you want to do every day.

UPDATE Developer picked up on my review below. Not sure whether it was something they did or it has just resolved with the patience they asked for, but my data is now all back. Still a few niggles (log in every time) buy largely happy and I’m back tracking.

Original review:
Of course we all have auto-update on so no use giving the only constructive advice which would be to stick with the old version. I’m probably going to consider legal action under GDPR to ensure I get back all my personal data the developers still have stored on a server somewhere but which is inaccessible via the app. So unfortunately two other actions now: 1, download an alternative app; 2, go and have a pint to get over the stress. (Not sure the developers intended either outcome, but there you go.)

Hi G Dawes,



We’re sorry to hear you’re experiencing an issue with migrating your data to the new app. Please rest assured your data is safe, in some cases this process is taking longer than we expected, due to the sheer volume of data being processed at the moment. The problem has been resolved now and you should be able to access your data. If you are still experiencing issues, please send us an email to contact@drinkaware.co.uk and we will be more than happy to assist. We value your feedback and we are working round the clock to resolve any issues the app might have.



Kind regards,
The Drinkaware Team

Terrible update

What were they thinking with the update? A few simple tweaks, like making it easier to add a non-listed drink was all that was required, but what we’ve got is a laborious way of adding drinks, a confusing interface and set of dashboards, constant requests to login and no visibility of history beyond the previous week. Unfathomable that anyone thought this was an improvement.

Update
I keep seeing feedback from the developer saying this “upgrade” was extensively tested and researched with users. This seems a bit odd - did these users genuinely say, “I want to scrupulously enter my data on a day by day basis, but I absolutely don’t want to see any monthly summary of the data, no weekly summary beyond the previous week and no daily summary beyond the previous month”?There’s a big deal being made about migrating user data, but that’s surely a moot point if there’s literally no way of seeing any form of summary beyond the last month, other than going into the calendar and viewing it day by day. It gives absolutely no insight into one’s history and is essentially now useless. I keep entering data in the hope that this may be improved but it’s looking like another calculator might be needed

Hi Ann-
Sorry that you are not liking the new app. Of course, in the growth process, there are things that glitch or lag, but we are listening to you. We have put considerable time, effort and thought throughout the launch. This also involved (and involves) feedback from loyal users like yourself. The security of user data is of utmost importance to us, so the multiple logins should ease up after this large migration dies down. Tweaks to monitoring drinks measures and the ability of specific drinks to be more accurately logged are in progress, as well as the ability to review your data in multiple (weekly/monthly) formats. Just make sure you are using the most updated version, as we are striving to improve every day!
Thank you for your time and input, we consider it with care.
Regards,
Cate (and The Drinkaware Team)

Its come to this ,

Much worse than it used to be

I’ve been using the app for a couple of years and found it pretty useful. At some point I had to reinstall it on my phone and discovered this awful “upgrade”. I’ve never been driven to write an app review before but this is what it’s come to. Why do we have to log in every single time we use the app? Why have I already done the self assessment but the app can’t remember it so I get prompted all the time? Why doesn’t it display a whole week at a time? Why can’t we compare more than a week at a time like we could before? Why have you taken away the calories and the cost of drinks? The sleep rating could be useful but we can’t really compare it to see longer term trends so, much like the rest of the app, it’s now largely useless. Please don’t respond by saying I need more time to get used to the app - I’m not an idiot, it’s just a bad upgrade. Please can you just reinstate the old features, as most of the reviews here seem to be requesting. This is a failure, but you have all my data so I’d theoretically like to keep using it if it improved again.

Hello-
I'm sorry that you aren't pleased with the new app. We did take a lot of effort researching this upgrade, including user feedback and testing to try and get it right.
But we appreciate the time that you have taken to let us know of your concerns and requests. That is exactly what is necessary in order to improve and progress.
Some of the issues you mentioned are known-the volume of data migration was very large, and we took as many security precautions in order to protect users during this transition. Multiple logins should ease up, and the speed of the app should improve now that we are settling in.
The old tracking features and presentation of data have been duly noted as things that loyal users like yourself miss, and they are being taken into consideration for future releases.
If you have anything further you'd like to address, I'd be happy to answer specifically to my best ability. You can email contact@drinkaware.co.uk and I'll get back to you :)

Best Regards,
Cate (and The Drinkaware Team)
