Alcoo-sim Be my angel HD - App Review



Do you know how much you can drink and subsequently drive, legally?

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
After acknowledging a disclaimer, you are invited to set parameters by answering very user-friendly pictograms. These are initially limited to sex and weight.

Thereafter you elegantly glide your drink(s) from a choice of:

Beer (large or small)
Shandy
Wine (red or white)
Champagne
Whiskey
Vodka
Gin
Tequila
Rum
Liqueur
Spirit
Aperitif
Caipirinha
Mojito
Pina colada
Gin & tonic
Cocktail
Sangria
Hot wine

... into the timeline but, not until you have touched the picture of the drink and amended (if necessary), the default quantity and alcoholic strength.

Once you are finished, touch the calculate button.

You are presented with a graph displaying your current and predicted alcohol levels, as well as maximum level and the time at which you should be at 0%.

Cost
Not only is the App free but, if you are lucky enough to be in Switzerland, it is part of a move to raise awareness of the perils of drinking (and drugs) aimed mainly at 16-25 year-olds. Anyone accepting to be the (non-drinking) designated driver gets free drinks; nice touch.

Indispensability
The App makes you more aware than you might otherwise be of the time to 'evacuate' alcohol.

Dependability
You are warned when you open the App that the information is only given for illustration purposes. Do not use this to decide to drive.

Security
Don't drink and drive.

ACIDS Test Rating:
