"It endorses the possibility that people want to take responsibility," said Wayne Skinner, deputy clinical director for the centre. "This is a way of helping people set their goals and give them feedback."
In addition to helping users track their alcohol intake, the app outlines low-risk drinking guidelines and has links to outside resources. Saying When sells for $1.99 on iTunes and has been downloaded approximately 300 times since launching in early June.
