Be Safe on The Road With “Can You Drive?” For Android

Most people love to party and as such drinking is an integral part of their social life. However, many accidents (most of them fatal) occur due to people going a little heavy on the drinking aspect of partying. Surely, you will know if you are wasted , but when you are mildly buzzed, you may not notice that some of your skills are not up to par, especially driving. How would you know if you can drive or not? The answer is with “Can You Drive?” created by XDA member tofira. This app basically will allow you to plan ahead and take all the necessary precautions if you are thinking of getting completely hammered. Moreover, the app contains a rather extensive list of drinks and their alcohol contents as well as regulations for alcohol in blood levels for several places worldwide. The app will calculate, based on a number of factors including weight and height, how much you can drink to be able to drive back safely without breaking the law or putting your life (and others) in danger. Lastly, the app will be able to tell you the regulations based on your location, so there are no codes or country selections to be made.

The dev is looking for feedback and help to keep adding drinks and regulations to the app’s main database. Give it a shot and please if you do drink, do so responsibly.

Hey,

We’ve added a new app to the market – Can You Drive?

The app helps you to decide whether you can drive your car legally.

It contains a database of drinks (390 items), that includes all the popular drinks you know.

The program recognizes your general location, and adjusts itself to the local law in your country.

You can find more information in the application thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
