Thirstic - A smart and privacy-focused water drink reminder app

Bolzano, Italy - Independent app developer Johannes Erschbamer is proud to announce Thirstic, the first smart water drink reminder that automatically adapts to the users's activity and the weather conditions. Human water needs depend heavily on the daily activity and the environment conditions. Therefore, Thirstic adapts the user's water intake goal to the current conditions and helps staying hydrated, even on very active or hot days.

The app automatically updates the estimated water needs in the background and sends a reminder as soon as the user reaches her/his preferred water needs threshold. For example, Thirstic will send a notification if it's time to drink another 300 ml (10 fl oz). In addition to the users activity, the daily water intake goal changes depending on the local weather conditions. In the app settings, the user can customize the parameters of this calculation, resulting in higher or lower daily water intake goals.

Key Features:
* Automatically estimates water needs based on activity and the weather conditions
* The parameters of the water needs estimate can be configured in the app settings
* Sends reminders if it's time to drink a specified water threshold (example: 300 ml or 10 fl oz)
* Assists drinking in small amounts throughout the day. Sipping water is healthy
* A minimalistic and intuitive user interface
* Daily statistics that allow a comparison between water intake and estimated water needs
* Privacy. All data is processed and stored on the users's device

Thirstic works best if the user has daily data for active and resting energy in the Health app. Apple Watch and many other fitness bands write this fitness data into Health. Otherwise, Thirstic uses the build-in step counter from the iPhone to estimate daily activity and water needs. Privacy and data security is a key concept of Thirstic. All fitness data analysis is performed locally on the device. The user's water intake is stored securely in the Health app. Activity or health data never leaves the iPhone.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone with iOS 12.4 or later
* 3MB storage space

Pricing and Availability:
As of today, Thirstic is exclusively available on the App Store as a free download. All basic features can be used without any fees. More advanced features (like access to weather data) require an in-app subscription or an one-time purchase with no expiry. Thirstic is not a medical app. It is intended for informational and reminder purposes only and cannot be used for medical or nutrition advice.
