Ready? Here we go … Drinking and driving sucks! If you drink and drive, you are an idiot … putting your and other lives in serious danger. Hey, nothing against parting hard, getting hammered and waking up in a gutter with a new tattoo on your ass … just stay away from driving a car.
Easier said than done … agreed! Heck, even a casual post workday Happy Hour can put you at risk. We could all use a little handholding when it comes to drinking responsibly … and that’s when the DrinkTracker app [iTunes] becomes your friend who’s got your back.
DrinkTracker by SlappMeDot.com (no it’s not a porno spanking site!) had us at “Hello” … an absolutely stunning, user-friendly and high quality iPhone breathalyzer app. At first sight, it’s obvious that SlappMe put a lot of time and effort into producing DrinkTracker … it simply rocks!
Based on your personal profile (user inputs their gender, age, height and weight), DrinkTracker will automatically compare your alcohol intake and your metabolic removal rate and calculate your blood alcohol content (BAC) EVERY 60 SECONDS! Told you it rocks … every 60 seconds you will be updated with your current BAC level and given a timeframe for how long you need to wait until your next drink to remain at your BAC target. In the US, it’s illegal to drive if your BAC is .08 or higher – so be sure to set the BAC Target well below 0.8 (no dumbass, .0799 won’t cut it).
Here are some additional DrinkTracker features that will assist you in drinking responsibly so you can actually manage to drive home and arrive in one piece:
> Continues to calculate your BAC even when app is closed
> If closed, app re-opens into your current session
> Auto updates … no need to manually refresh
> Supports custom drinks (good for foo-foo umbrella drink fans)
> Supports multiple personal profiles
> Supports US, Metric and Imperial measurements
And great news … SlappMe is already working on the next update which will include multiple concurrent user sessions. Two people can use DrinkTracker app at the same time and it will track BAC’s separately. A totally cool feature we love because two responsible heads are better than one.
To fully appreciate the features and benefits of DrinkTracker, watch the demo video below. It’s a touch over 5 minutes, but well worth your time considering one day DrinkTracker may save your life or at the very least, keep you out of jail.
Although DrinkTracker is a BAC estimator, it’s a heck of a lot more accurate than playing that risky “did I drink too much to drive” guessing game. At only $1.99, DrinkTracker should be considered an imperative member of your app collection and obviously 100% anti-KRAPPS Certified … with the 4th Of July Holiday right around the corner, do yourself a favor, purchase DrinkTracker now [iTunes] and enjoy the pleasures of drinking responsibly (Stone Brewing Imperial Russian Stout … love it).
