SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Fourdesire, an innovative mobile design studio, today announced the launch of the second version of their popular mobile app, Plant Nanny. Plant Nanny² combines health with fun to remind users to drink water regularly. The cute plant keeps users company every day by living in their phone.
Fourdesire, a forward-thinking mobile-app developer, is on a mission to help its users achieve their new year's resolutions to drink water and stay healthy with its updated app, Plant Nanny². The application's gamification features create a rich engaging experience that makes health and self-improvement fun rather than tedious.
According to Hackernoon, 81% of American adults own a smartphone and spend about 86 hours per month on their device. Fourdesire acknowledges the importance of smartphones and works to incorporate beneficial mobile apps into people's everyday lives. According to the latest Quench Survey, nearly 80% of working Americans say they don't drink enough water. Fourdesire is positively impacting the lives of people by incorporating the excitement of a mobile game with the action of drinking more water.
Water is essential for health but drinking enough of it is also one of the easiest things to neglect. Plant Nanny² keeps track of how much water users drink – each glass also waters the app's plant, so both can thrive. The first version of Plant Nanny has received a total of 10 million installations worldwide to help users live healthier and hydrated lives.
"It's easy to neglect getting enough water throughout our busy day-to-day lives. It's a good thing people these days love to use their phones. We can use apps to actively promote the issue and remind people about the health benefits of drinking water," said Wu Ying-Jung, Doctor of Philosophy in Food Science and Nutrition of National Taiwan University, Taipei (NTU). "People need plenty of water, just like plants. Plant Nanny² uses plants as a symbol to remind users that drinking water can be a cute and fun thing to do. In addition to just opening up the app to take care of your plants, the active reminder you receive about your plants' need for water will be linked in your mind with the need to drink enough water in your own life."
Users can expect all the great features that made them install Plant Nanny in the first place, along with various enhancements:
- Each glass of water users drink also waters the plants, so both can grow and thrive together.
- Customizable ways users manage their water consumption goals.
- Simple charts and interfaces at a glance.
- Sleek new design: blending the fastest game engine with the latest design elements.
- Extraordinary interfaces: new user interface incorporates interactive and experimental design.
