What's New in Version 1.3
We added a setting that will allow you to change the number of glasses you want to challenge yourself to drink - either 1 or all the way up to 12! We are also pleased to say that we more than doubled the 'Tip of the Day' that you will find every time you are successful in drinking your glasses. Enjoy!
Rated 2/5 based on 3 customer reviews.

It actually CAN hurt to drink 8 glasses a day. For instance, a small child who weighs 40 or 50 pounds. If this child were to drink 8 glasses a day he/she may experience what's called, "water intoxication", which has proven to be fatal in some cases.
Anyone who thinks everyone needs to drink the same amount of water every day is, sorry to say, wrong. This app is not only misleading, but it lacks plenty of features that hardly make it worth the price. After using this app I feel it should be free due to it's extremely low user functionality.
A better way to go is to purchase the app called, "Water Your Body", it not only does what Eight Glasses a Day does (but properly), it also allows history tracking, time stamps, graphs, information, and frankly it's just an all around better app.
More facts please!

I really like this app - it was one of the first apps I put on my IPhone. Very simple to use. I would however like an update with more facts - the ones that show up when you completed all 8 glasses. I also agree with a previous review that a history would be helpful too. More facts and a history log would make this a 5 star!
A good start
...needs more functionality, please. It would be useful for people who are tracking their water consumption (re: kidney stone or other health issues, for example), to be able to set the time of their consumption cycle by wheel (not just a 12:30a default) and tap for 1/2 glass, press for whole glass (since "glass" for me is sometimes a whole made up of partial drinks).
A log (c/b simple as time of each full glass) would be a great feature since I know my h2O consption isn't even and there are times of day when I am, in fact, dehydrated.
An alarm feature and a thresholld option (set an alert if no water is consumed in X number of hours) w/b nice! A good start - please keep going!
