The new Hydrate Now app, now available for iOS devices, aims to help you avoid excruciating hangovers by generously annoying you with hydration reminders. App creator and presumed water enthusiast Jacob Catalano spoke with Cosmopolitan about his creation Monday, just in time to inspire a few readers to have an easier Tuesday morning. Catalano, noting the existence of multiple hydration apps, said he had a vision to design one that is solely intended for hangover prevention.

The Hydrate Now app is currently available for the very friendly price of $0.00.
