New App for Blackout Drinkers Knows What You Did Last Night


An app called "Drunk Mode" will help prevent drunk dials, track you and your friends via GPS and retrace your steps the next day. But it won't prevent hangovers.

Do you ever get so drunk that you:

a) Dial people you shouldn’t be calling (your exes, your boss, your grandmother)?

b) Lose track of your friends (or have them lose track of you)?

or c) Wake up the next day with no recollection of what you did the night before, wondering where the hell this sombrero came from?

If the answer is a, b, c or all of the above, you may want to consider cutting back on your drinking. Or you can download a new app called Drunk Mode.

Basically the tech equivalent of a sober babysitter, the app includes three main features: “Stop Drunk Dialing” allows you to select certain contacts which will remain hidden for 12 hours. “Find My Drunk” enables you track your friends by GPS and vice versa. And “Breadcrumbs” tracks where you are throughout the course of the night and reminds you the next day where the heck you went after that fourth beer.

The app, currently available in beta mode only, is designed to “change the lives of drunk people around the world by providing you an all in one solution for the party professional for both safety and fun,” says the website.

One thing it can’t do is help you get home safely, or prevent you from vomiting in your roommate’s trash can at 3 am. But at least it will stave off the demoralizing shame of leaving drunk voicemails. That’s a mess you can never windex away.
