AlcoDroid Alcohol Tracker app
AlcoDroid Alcohol Tracker app
An app for people wanting to keep track of their drinking habits and alcohol consumption.
This app helps users keep track of their alcohol consumption. Users log each drink they have and a graph shows their estimated blood alcohol volume over time (based on weight and gender) including an estimate of when they can expect to be sober. The app allows users to set goals and track the costs of drinking. Alcohol use data can be shared or exported. The app also provides some basic information about the effects of different levels of alcohol on behaviour. For a more detailed description of the app, see Google Play(external link) or, for a more detailed review, see reviews below.
✔ Reasonably easy to use.
✘ Has pop-up ads (user can pay NZD$3.99 to upgrade and remove ads).

Comments: This is a best app for keeping track of alcohol intake. I have found it invaluable for helping me decide whether I really want that drink. Easy to use.
Reviewer: Julie Carter, Community Liaison Dietitian, Auckland District Health Board
Date of review: July 2016
Comments: This app is useful for people who are motivated to track their alcohol intake and it's likely effects, including estimated time until sober again. While the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level estimates used are not detailed, the graphical representation of consecutive alcoholic drinks is effective, especially if the local legal BAC level is entered into the settings. This could give some loose guidance in determining safety to perform some activities, and when the user is expected to be sober again.
Safety concerns: The app does not outline details of the calculations or guidelines used to estimate Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) levels so I am unsure as to the accuracy of these estimates
New Zealand relevance: Relevant to New Zealand users
