Social Interlock 1.0 – New App Prevents Drunken Social Network Posts

By on Jan 4, 2011 at 1:51 am

Smithfield, Virginia – Mobile developer Imperial Penguin is announcing the release of Social Interlock 1.0, a new app for iOS and Android devices that is designed to make the morning after a heavy night of drinking just a little less stressful. When you replace the official Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter apps on your phone with this app, you can lock yourself out if the app determines that you are too intoxicated to post your status and/or message your friends responsibly.

The app works by requiring the user to take a simple motor skills test when they are sober. After the sober test is taken, the user can lock the app to prevent themselves from accessing the three supported social networks. In order to unlock the app, and gain access, the motor skills test must be taken again and a score of near the sober amount must be earned. The difficulty of passing the test can be adjusted in the options, so each user can adjust the app for their specific tolerances.

This app is perfect for those people who find themselves revealing too many personal details, or other inappropriate comments while browsing Facebook, Myspace, or Twitter while under the influence of alcohol. Or worse yet, those users who find themselves sending messages to friends or family through those social networking sites that they later regret. If you, or someone you know, let your emotions get the best of you while drinking this app can be a relationship saver.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.0 or later (iOS 4.0 Tested)
* 0.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Social Interlock 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Social Networking category.
