Girl and a mouse ,


This is a brilliant app! It gave me real information that was informative but non judgmental. I now understand exactly how my drinking rates with others in my demographic, what I should be concerned about and what I don’t need to worry about. It was easy to use. This is a fantastic app! Love it! Sharing widely.

Flawed log in system

Idea and app function seem great...once you can get into the app. The system of only logging in with a unique ID seems glitchy and I have not been able to log in to the app a second time after updating a weeks worth of drinks on my first login. Defeats the purpose of tracking chance over time. I have not been able to get back in even after deleting and reinstalling the app.

Great experience

Realistic friendly tone, nice interface, very insightful. I have a new perspective that's going to help me balance my consumption.
