Review: DrinkCoach is a simple and visually appealing app offering a set of tools to track and record personal drinking behaviours and any negative outcomes. It also allows the user to set goals and provides a series of simple videos, including guided meditation, to help manage cravings and urges to drink. The user does need to be aware that measurements of drinking units are in line with UK standards not Australian. This means that information about consumption and harms may not be accurate for the individual (i.e. as recommended in the Australian alcohol guidelines). Overall, this is a neat and tidy little app, endorsed by the UK National Health Service and based around sound principles.
