WHEN Apple came up with the famous tagline “there’s an app for that”, I didn’t expect it to have thought of this.
“Pee & See” is one of a number of Android and iOS apps that track when you pee to keep you hydrated – but who developed it?
1) What is Pee & See App?
Pee & See reminds you to drink water throughout the day by tracking when you go to the bathroom.
The free app is described on its official website as “one of the easiest ways to get water reminders with minimal work”.
To use it, you just need to touch a button every time you search.
You’ll get a reminder to drink water when it’s been more than three hours since your last pee.
You’re even presented with a graph – a pee chart, if you will – that shows how many times you went to the bathroom in the past week.
Pee & See says that drinking water regularly can help with weight loss, reduce kidney stones, and improve overall and physical health.
The app is available on iPhone and Apple Watch through Apple App Store but not yet available on Android devices.
2) Who developed the Pee & See app?
According to Apple’s App Store, Pee & See was created by developer John Ganotis under his company Ganotis Holdings.
John has put together a number of apps for both the iPhone and Apple Watch, many of which are health-related tracking services.
In a 2016 blog post on mediumJohn explains what inspired him to build Pee & See.
“I knew I wasn’t drinking enough,” he wrote.
“Sometimes the result is a terrible headache. This takes away my productivity and makes me feel unwell.
“Tracking my water intake is so annoying. I have another idea: Tap a button every time I pee, then get a reminder when it’s been a while.”
3) Other peeping tracking apps
Pee & See isn’t the only app that tracks your bathroom visits.
BladderPal, iUFlow, and others all record your fluid intake and urine output to measure how hydrated you are.
The benefit of these apps is that they are also available on Android devices.
