LESS - Alcohol Tracker

Less is a simple, elegant, intuitive tool to help people who drink alcohol do so more mindfully, and make space for more drink-free days. From the creators of ZERO, the top rated fasting app, Less makes it easy to track your alcohol intake so you can stay aware of how much you drink and when. It’s a science-based approach to taking control of your consumption. As the saying goes, “What gets measured gets managed.”

This app is a judgment-free zone. It’s designed to help anyone who wants to moderate alcohol consumption, no matter what the reason. Whether you’re trying to sail through social situations without overdoing it, overwhelmed by the ocean of work functions involving alcohol, or seeking to chart a course toward better health, Less is your companion to navigate these stormy waters.

**This is v1 of “the drinking buddy that helps you drink less.” We’re rapidly iterating and improving, so we welcome feedback to help make Less as upbeat, engaging, and helpful as possible.**


Choose to experience the journey toward mindful consumption as either Les or Leslie. You’re the captain of this ship, and every decision is yours. As you log drinks, your daily intake affects the weather while your weekly intake affects your speed. Stay under your daily limit to keep the skies sunny. Stay under your weekly limit to keep the wind at your back. If you exceed your limits, you’ll run into stormy weather and slow your progress.


SET LIMITS. Our algorithm will recommend a weekly limit, but you can customize that limit up or down to work at your own pace.

LOG DRINKS WITH A TAP. Quickly and easily log each drink from the homescreen, or use the widget to add drinks without opening the app for a more discrete tracking experience.

BUILD STREAKS. Less tracks how many drink-free days you rack up in a row so you can visualize your progress.

REVIEW YOUR WEEK. See when you drank and how much. Use this information to inform your choices moving forward.

REVIEW YOUR MONTH. The calendar view lets you see your entire consumption history so you can see the big picture of your alcohol intake.

CHART YOUR PROGRESS. Less transforms your inputs into easy-to understand graphs so you can see how your habits evolve over time.


With Less, you can…

...Adjust your weekly limits up or down depending on your goals.

...View and edit your history. If you forgot to log a drink, or logged one incorrectly, you can adjust the number from the “past days” screen.

...View key statistics like your 7-day rolling average, your 28-day rolling average, and total drink-free days since joining.

...See how much drinking is costing you. Less estimates how much money you spend on alcohol.

...See how alcohol impacts your health. Less estimates how many calories you consume from alcohol.

...Compare streaks. Track drink-free days and weeks within your limit. Compare your current streak to your longest one.


Dig deep with articles, podcasts, and snackable advice, curated by our team of experts. Read studies from trusted sources about the benefits of drinking less. Listen to podcasts from the top minds in nutrition. Find mocktail recipes to help you drink thoughtfully without sacrificing your social life.

The math is frequently off… so Force close to refresh

Great app, but when the app comes back from being in the background (say a day or two later) it often needs to refresh what day it is and the current daily tally. Pretty obvious when it’s my first drink of the day and there’s already two there. Possibly compounding this issue is using Siri to say “add a drink”. This is an awesome use of Siri, but I think it too it isn’t always targeting the right day. As an Apple Dev myself, I know this is difficult to test in a live environment because the Xcode Simulator isn’t going to leave something running in the background for days at a time. But devs, there is definitely something going on. And no, it’s not a case of forgetting that post midnight drinks count toward the next day. Gets 5 stars anyway, because I’m sure this will get resolved eventually and at that point, it’s perfect

Almost There

I really like the app, it was easy to set up. But there seems to be no way to change my daily limit. It says I go over the daily limit on different days, when I have a 6 drink a week limit and don’t drink all week until Friday or Saturday and have even 2-3 it tells me I went over my limit for that week. Even if I stayed at or under my weekly limit. I don’t want it set to have one drink a day for 6 days. Please let it change daily limits, doesn’t feel “guilt free” and “no judgement” tracking and having it tell me I go over, and it’s red. I’m trying to use this to be more mindful of overall consumption and give my body a break on more days of the week. Not to feel like I’m failing when I have 3 drinks on Friday and saved them up from the week.

Amazing concept, needs improvement

I love this app in concept but could be so much improved. Numbers are often inaccurate until you refresh. Weekly totally should say ‘daily’, monthly totals should be ‘weekly’, year should say ‘monthly’. Articles should update or rotate. Daily tally and calendar should be front and center. Give options for what is displayed at the top (eg. days drink-free instead of how many calories I’ve consumed which NO ONE wants to see.) or add how many calories and money I’ve SAVED by cutting back instead of consumed… or the ability to set that timeframe to week or month (a year is just way too long). But that said, I think this is brilliant. I love the art and how the language is around ‘less’ and ‘drink-free’ and ‘streaks’. I appreciate that there is no imagery of wine glasses or language like ‘stop drinking!!’ Which is heavy-handed and counterproductive. Very nice app, just needs a few improvements!!
