Track Your Water Consumption With WaterMinder ➝

Jake Underwood, writing for MacStories:

WaterMinder’s goal is to, quite simply, help you drink water. Similarly to how the Activity app aims to provide movement goals based on height, weight, and general activity lifestyle, WaterMinder calculates and presents you with a specific ounce count for the amount of water you should drink every day.

I’m pretty happy with my eating habits, but I don’t drink nearly enough water. That’s something I’d like to change and WaterMinder looks like the perfect app to help me along the way.

MacStories Reviews Activity++ ➝

Jake Underwood, writing for MacStories, on David Smith’s newly announced Activity++:

Activity++ is very similar to Apple’s own Activity app. And for those unfamiliar with Smith’s “++” branding, the app could be confused as a tool which adds more functionality to the stock Activity app. I’ll strike that down right now – while Activity++ does offer improvements to both the iPhone and Apple Watch Activity apps, these improvements aren’t related to new functionality.

Activity++ will make its way onto your devices because of its convenience. On either platform, the app presents activity data in digestible sets of information that are accessible and void of any clutter. Don’t think, however, that the data is simple; rather, consider that Activity++ has a form of presentation superior to Apple’s own Activity app.

I installed the app yesterday morning and have been very happy with it so far. I find the “streaks” visualization to be much more enjoyable than the way Apple’s Activity app displays similar data.
