Reviewer: Garren Espin, Dietitian, Auckland Diabetes Centre Date of review:July 2016 Comments:The This app is most useful for consumers of alcohol, especially frequent consumers. It enables consumers to see the monetary and calorie cost of their drinking habits. The app allows users to reflect on what their current drinking habits are doing to their health, such as hindering weight loss, and their financial security. Tracking the monetary and calorie cost of an individuals drinking habits may facilitate behaviour change more than simply tracking alcohol intake alone. Safety concerns:None. New Zealand relevance: Fine except there isno option to pick NZ specific alcohol drinking standards."
The formal app review is based on the Mobile App Rating Scale (MARS) developed by researchers at Queensland University of Technology, Australia.(1) It is designed to score apps on a few comprehensive dimensions — engagement, functionality, aesthetics, and information quality. Each dimension comprises several items which are rated on a 5-point scale from “1. Inadequate” to “5. Excellent”.
