[prMac.com] Las Vegas, Nevada - Michael Coman Design today announced the availability of the firm's new app, cafeHydrate on the App Store. cafeHydrate is the definitive bottled water buyer's guide app for iPhone and iPod touch. The newly available app helps consumers learn about and appreciate the differences among all bottled waters so they can make an informed purchasing decision.
Bottled water products have grown to a multi-billion dollar industry offering a variety of brands, packaging and price-points. Consumers are questioning if bottled is better than tap, and which bottled waters are truly superior and the best value. The cafeHydrate app helps consumers decide which product is best for their personal preference by providing easy to access product information and facts about bottled water.
"As a person devoted to health and fitness, nutritional facts and product ingredients influence my purchasing decisions," said Michael Coman, founder of Michael Coman Design and creator of the app. "Prior to developing the cafeHydrate app, I was perplexed by the lack of information available for bottled water. I started researching facts and nutritional information for various brands, logging the data and periodically sharing findings with friends and family, which evolved into the cafeHydrate app."
Coman created cafeHydrate with two goals in mind: to provide an interesting and useful technology based tool for consumers which will help clear up confusion surrounding the bottled water industry and to take a portion of the profits and use those to fund health and green non-profit projects. cafeHydrate is committed to environmental stewardship and the health of our planet and will donate 1% of its total sales to non-profit organizations in support of health and environmental causes, clean water initiatives in particular.
Version 1 of the cafeHydrate mobile app contains hundreds of bottled waters marketed in the US including domestic and imported brands. Additional countries and products will be added with each update of the app.

* Product overview and grade rating
