Seattle, WA - November 10, 2008 - Avvo, Inc. (www.avvo.com), the only free website that empowers consumers to handle their legal matters with confidence, released today "Last Call" - an innovative blood alcohol content estimator for the Apple iPhone. The free application allows iPhone users to:
- Log their alcohol consumption as they
- Monitor their estimated blood-alcohol level in real time.
- Find nearby taxi services if their blood-alcohol level is above the legal limit.
- Contact top Avvo-rated DUI attorneys if they need one.
"Last Call is a fun - but at the same time serious - application that helps you monitor your alcohol consumption," said Mark Britton, Avvo CEO and a 16-year attorney who was previously general counsel at Expedia.com. "But, more importantly, Last Call helps you understand when you have had too much to drink, and it finds you a taxi or, if necessary, a top-rated DUI lawyer with the push of a button."
To use Last Call, a user of the application enters their weight and gender, and then logs each drink consumed from an extensive menu. Using a sophisticated time-based algorithm, Last Call estimates real time blood alcohol content, including alerting the user when their blood alcohol is above the legal limit. The application uses the iPhone's GPS to provide the user with listings for local taxi companies and Avvo's top-rated DUI lawyers in the area.
