Austin,TX: Lone Wolfe Mobile today announced the release of DUI kNOw One-Leg Stand, an Android smart phone app that tests balancing abilities and encourages potentially impaired drivers not to operate vehicles after drinking alcohol.
DUI kNOw One-Leg Stand, which is compatible with Android platforms 1.6 and higher, administers a thirty second one-leg stand DUI test. Similar to the one-leg stand, a standard field sobriety test, DUI kNOw One-Leg Stand asks a user to place their Android phone in their front pants pocket and stand on one leg. The test allows the person to put a foot down once in thirty seconds and still receive a passing score. The app uses the phone’s orientation sensors to record all movements, so if a foot is put down more than once or if there is a fall, the phone will report a failure of the one-leg stand DUI test.
Up until now, this was a test that required two people and usually was only administered by law enforcement. With the DUI kNOw One-Leg Stand app, this test can now be performed by one person and at any time desired. The test records and measures angles in a manner that is consistent and not open to interpretation.
DUI kNOw One-Leg Stand will speak the results of the test. If more details about the error count are desired, a button causes the phone to speak the details of the test results as well as offer some hints about receiving a better score. All instructions are spoken out loud and the extensive help is also spoken out loud. Since scores and instructions are spoken out loud, the only requirements for taking this test are pushing buttons on the phone and placing and removing the phone from a front pants pocket. The app is especially designed for ease of use and helpfulness. DUI kNOw One-Leg Stand is a quick, inexpensive and easy way to find out if driving might be hazardous or illegal.
DUI kNOw One-Leg Stand offers a useful tool for anybody who has had a drink and is considering driving, Lone Wolfe Mobile owner and DUI kNOw One-Leg Stand creator Lewis Wolfe said. “I wanted to distribute an app that potentially impaired drivers with an Android phone could use that would help them test and see their own balancing difficulties. Balancing difficulties are usually easy to spot when it is somebody else that is doing the balancing. It is not so easy to see or admit your own balancing problems. The DUI kNOw series of DUI testing apps now has an app available that will self-test physical balancing abilities.
“It’s helpful for the person who drinks,” he said. “There are so many expensive, harmful, and difficult consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The cost of the app is less than 1/10th of 1 percent of the cost for the first DUI offense. Also, a DUI usually has physical and emotional costs that cannot be assigned a monetary amount. The app is available for less than the cost of one alcoholic drink.”
DUI kNOw One-Leg Stand costs 99 cents and is available at the Android Market. There is also a free evaluation app that lasts for eight seconds called DUI kNOw One-Leg Stand Lite available for download at the Android Market.
Another Lone Wolfe Mobile app, DUI kNOw Walk and Turn Lite, is a free Android app that uses the orientation sensors of the phone to determine balancing abilities while walking an imaginary toe-to-heel ten foot line. The full version allows the degree of leaning and the length of time allowed for the test to be selectable. DUI kNOw One-Leg Stand and DUI Walk and Turn are great party apps.
