IntelliDrink - BAC Calculator
By Raphael Wichmann
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
IntelliDrink is a sophisticated blood-alcohol content (BAC) calculator. It has a very simple user interface and a complex algorithm for precise calculations.
It is easy to use and a lot of fun!
- IntelliDrink shows your BAC on a precise graph!
- Look ahead and watch your BAC value rise and fall on the graph!
- IntelliDrink shows you when you are going to be sober again!
- You can track your friends and yourself simultaneously with one app!
- Add a reminder to get notified when you reach a specific BAC value!
"As an expert in the field of BAC absorption and elimination, I am impressed by this app."
"Incredible. Absolutely wonderful and fascinating algorithm that takes into account absorption time."
"By far the best drink tracking app I've found... Cheers!"
"Way better (and easier to use) than expected. I can really, truly see this being a life-saver (or DUI)."
"Fully customizable in letting u add, edit, and save any number of drinks to ur list, specifying default sizes, percent alcohol/strength, and typical drink duration, this app is simply amazing. Great that it factors in sex, age, and weight as well. None of the other bac/drink tracking apps out there even come close!"
"A great deal. Seems very accurate. It really helps you get an idea of how long after a drink it affects you. The app looks great. The multi users is easy to switch between, letting you easily track friends. They seem to have the formula that is most accurate. Takes into account the time it takes you to have a drink. Real time graph is informative. 10 star A+++ app"
"I used this app several times now, and every time it has given near identical if not slightly off reading from that of a real breathalyzer test. If used properly, and all the information you input into the app is correct with the situation, then you should be quite surprised by how on par this app is on judging your blood alcohol content and level of intoxication."
Here are some features of IntelliDrink:
- Complex algorithm for precise calculations based on actual scientific knowledge.
- Calculates the absorption and metabolism of alcohol over time.
- Highly intuitive and simple user interface.
- Video tutorial integrated.
- BAC alarm.
- Create multiple profiles and use them in parallel.
- Considers your age, weight, height, gender, drinking frequency and your stomach content level.
- Create new or modify existing drinks.
- You can close the app at any time and your data is saved.
- Battery friendly, no background calculations.
- Drink history which gives you an overview of the drinks you had.
- Post your graph or current BAC to Facebook or email it.
A lot of effort was put into the algorithm for calculating the values. Most BAC calculators assume that you simply downed the drink you added and, even worse, they assume that you have already completely digested the drink.
This certainly has nothing to do with how it really works.
The core concept of IntelliDrink is based on the scientifically accepted Widmark formula, which is also used by the German justice system. With this formula, one can calculate how many grams of alcohol lead to which blood alcohol concentration level in the human body.
But this formula does not consider how long it takes you to drink a drink, at what level your stomach content level is at and how fast your metabolism is. IntelliDrink takes all of these factors into consideration. On the basis of solid scientific research, a much more precise algorithm was developed which is pleasantly visualized on a graph.
Even when IntelliDrink offers a high standard on precision, the shown values can differ from reality and lead to false results. There are many other factors that simply cannot be taken into account and therefore accepts no responsibility or liability for the accuracy and completeness of the information given.
What's New in Version 1.2.2

- Minor Bugfixes
Good to know when to stop
I've had this app a few weeks now and have just used it for entertainment to see how the results compare to how I feel. It's pretty useful info. Right now I'm sitting in a bar in downtown Asheville, on a brewery tour weekend with some fellas. I can tell you, because two men are down from last night, that my use of the app last night kept me in control. Seeing how the alcohol continues to affect you and the BAC rises after the beer is done, I was wise to slow down and drink more water along the way. I still overdid it, but not to the degree I likely would have otherwise. Plus, on the way in we stopped at two breweries. I was able to drink one at each brewery and I knew both that I was safe and also not to have more. It's a solid app, and all of the adjustments in drink info makes it very usable. Highly recommended to those who appreciate attempting to be responsible.
I am So Thankful for this App
If you're searching for a way to drink more responsibly - especially if you have a hangover from hell right now as you're reading- this is great and may make you feel a little better just knowing it exists. There is a way. Knowledge is power.
It's amazing as it is. I would love to see an update where I could easily end a drink without going in and adjusting it. It would also be cool if I could add a round for myself and my friends all at once. Being able to calibrate it by entering breathalyzer readings would be awesome someday.
Thank You Raphael!!!
After going through the harrowing experience of a dui last year, I had to make changes and be more responsible. I've looked at many apps/calculators, and this one seems to be most customizable and accurate. It is very eye opening to see how long it takes alcohol to leave your system, ie, just because you sleep it off doesn't mean you are legal to drive the next morning. A dui is very avoidable and so not worth it, it is serious business. Have a plan and know how much you consume.
