    UPDATE August 21, 2009: The app seems to be working perfectly now. Just added a background, some funny sounds and tweaked the overall look a bit.

    1. Let me know about the sounds, if you like them or don't.
    2. If you like it better, re-evaluate how many stars you gave it.


    Here is a simple BAC Calculator (Blood Alcohol Content) app that will "estimate" you blood alcohol content.

    I know this is not for serious use, but really, it is not even close to accurate. For one thing, the Male and Female calculations seem to be reversed.

    Maybe you can just drink a lot more than a normal person.

    Where do you get your facts from? I like the idea, but for me (210 pounds), it says I can drink 14 light beers in 3 hours and be at .08%. If I were female, I could drink 15.5 light beers in 3 hours.

    I think you need to check your data...

    It's probably just getting confused by the fact that a man is drinking light beer.

    Come again? I just entered 14 light beers in 3 hours and 210 pounds and the BAC should be .314 % which should mean you're in need of hospital attention.

    I've had the same problem. It does not seem to calculate to bac correctly.

    Yeah, it's fairly inaccurate.

    I can. But even I would not blow sober after four doubles in one hour.

    Dont know what the deal is with yours, but when I enter a male of 210 pounds with 14 drinks in 3 hours i get .314%
    Seems accurate to me.

    I noticed sometimes it checks more than one drink, idk why. Try it out, choose a drink and scroll up and down the menu.

    Great app, I absolutely love it. This is perfect for a college student looking to show off his phone at parties

    If you could; make it so it goes over 300 pounds and 20 drinks? (Lets just say I live in Wisconsin )

    I can't seem to get it to just choose one.

    I had to delete this app because of how innacurate it is...@ 190 lbs, I can have 7 malt beers in 1 hour and not be over the legal limit...I'll keep watching for a calculation update.

    I am also getting VERY innacurate results. No clue why it works for some people, but something is messed up. I look forward to a corrected version!
