Abby's Apps - Plant Nanny

This week’s app is called Plant Nanny but you don’t have to have a green thumb to use it. It’s actually not about plants at all. Plant Nanny combines health and fun to remind you to drink water.

When you first download the app, you’ll want to turn notifications on to make sure you’re drinking enough throughout each day. Then, select your goals. Based on your weight and activity levels, you’ll find how much you need to drink. Next comes the fun part. You’ll pick a baby plant to water and raise. You can name it, pick its pot and choose how big your typical water vessel is.

As you drink throughout the day, you can make sure your plant drinks with you.

When you’re taking care of your body by having enough water your plant will grow, and you’ll earn points that can go towards seeds for another plant or a new pot. When you aren’t drinking enough, your plant will wither and turn brown.

The app is useful and entertaining, but unfortunately you cannot go back a day. So even when you drink enough, if you forget to feed your plant it will perish.
