Water, Water Everywhere – How to Drink Enough
We know water is the essence of life but how can we be sure that we are consuming enough? Waterlogged is a genius app that tracks how much water you drink every day with technology we all love: photos. Just take a photo of a glass or bottle of water before you start drinking, upload the image, and a graphic will show how much you’ve consumed and help you reach your H2O goal. You can track your water consumption by day, week, or year and get reminders when you need them.

MyPlate is based on the theory that eating well and losing weight are easier when you have a community to support you.
