AlcoDroid Alcohol Tracker by Myrecek – Jennifer Ruggiero
I was Voxering (oh boy, a new verb!) one night in a group chat amongst friends, and our friend Andrew popped in and told us that according his device, he wouldn’t be sober until 6:30 AM (or some time thereabout) and that he still had a blood alcohol content level of some amount (I forgot). I was taken aback… “What? You have an APP that determines your blood alcohol content level?” He then told me about about AlcoDroid.
I’m not a big drinker as alcohol contains too many empty calories for me to justify drinking it, but sometimes drink in moderation. This app, imo, is cool as @#$%, so I immediately sent it to my loved ones that drink, and told them to test it out for me. 🙂 I have played with the app myself as well.
AlcoDroid Alcohol Tracker allows you to enter your personal settings, such as sex and weight, and enter your customized drinks, whether they be water, beer, wine, cocktails, or shots. You may customize the alcohol content and amount consumed, or go with the average defaults offered by the app. Each drink you add contributes to your overall blood alcohol content level. The default settings are for a 154 pound male. If that 154 pound male had a shot, glass of wine, and a typical cocktail at 8 pm, he would have a blood alcohol content level of .99 and would be sober at 2:34 AM.
The only issue I see with this app is user-based… because when people start drinking, they may forget to log their drinks. However, if you can remember to accurately enter your drinks, then AlcoDroid Alcohol Tracker provides a good estimate as to when you will be legally sober.
