No one wants to be a statistic when it comes to driving drunk whether as a victim or the driver so we have an app that can help you take control and be responsible where your blood alcohol concentration is concerned. The Alcoreg app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone gives users a way to control their BAC (blood alcohol concentration) so that they act in a responsible fashion and keep themselves as well as others out of danger and avoid rehab.
The Alcoreg app provides users with quick and simple calculations so that you can get your BAC level. The way it works is that you fill your virtual glass and then hit the word drink to show you have had alcohol. You'll be able to track exactly how much you have had and when. To make things more exact there are eight different types of drinks to choose from and there are 12 different glasses so that you're keeping track as accurately as possible. There's even a way to set the percentage of alcohol before you start drinking that particular drink. Now you may be wondering how the app can give you an accurate BAC level just based on the drinks, well that's because you also set your gender, age, weight, and height.
Earlier this month the app was updated to provide users with a couple more features such as showing you the maximum BAC level and then monitoring it with an alarm so you don’t go over it. The app requires iOS 7.0 or later to use and is meant for those 17 years of age and older. There are no customer comments or a customer rating at this time.
Setting Up the App
Before you start using the Alcoreg app you'll need to first set it up, which is simple and quick. You'll start by entering your specifics (height, weight, etc.), then the alcohol type, glass, and the percentage. Next you're ready to start monitoring your drinking. What's great is that after the initial set-up literally all you have to do is tap the screen each time you have a drink and if you change up the type of alcohol or glass size it's no problem. The monitoring process couldn’t be any smoother.
Obviously this isn’t meant to be a 100% reliable method that you can rely on but it offers a very good indication of whether or not you should be slowing down your alcohol consumption and if you should be taking a cab home rather than driving.
