Good app


Great app if you are having “standard drinks”. Unfortunately most beers are 1.3 standard drinks etc. would be great if you could add this in the app.

Currently is basically a fancy timer :)

"Should be free of alcohol"


Doesn't allow you to put in more than 6 drinks. What if you've had a few more wines at a wedding etc?!

Developer Response

Hi there. Feed Safe is only intended to assist with timing a feed after small to moderate alcohol intake. Many other factors come into play after a heavier session, which is why the app only goes to six drinks. There is more about this in the information section of the app.

Love the app, would just love one change


The app is great and I would definitely recommend it. But if it's at all possible, it would be handy to be able to be more specific when selecting the number of standard drinks. As the chart in the app shows, most alcoholic drinks don't equal 1 standard drink - they might be 1.2 or 1.4 standard drinks. So it would be handy to be able to be this specific in the app, instead of just choosing 1 or 2 standard drinks.

Good news - you can do exactly that. Just hold down the + or - button, then enter your decimal using the picker.
