[prMac.com] Tucson, Arizona - It's easy to loose track of your tab when you are out drinking. A new app called BarTab Keepr has been released for the iPhone, providing unique functionality to people imbibing in alcohol when they go out for the night. Creative college students can amp up the entertainment factor with opportunities for competitive drinking games. While those with less imagination (and a lower BAC tolerance) can use the app to track an open bar tab and watch their intake or spending. Developed by AE'G-wiz, the all-in-one drink counter, bill and tip calculator, and location alarm app proves useful in several different ways:
Scenario #1 - If you're the type of person who tends to forget you left your credit card with the bartender and then you have to crawl back the next day, hungover, BarTab Keepr has a simple reminder alarm that will alert you to close out as you leave. Activate the alarm when you get to the bar and then set your phone aside. It pops an alert if you move outside your selected radius.
Scenario #2 - There may also be times when you want to keep a leash on your total. There's a section in the app designed to run an alert when you reach a maximum on your tab. There are two alert modes, 'Sobriety' and 'Poverty,' depending on whether you're worried about the amount of money you are spending or the amount of drinks you are consuming. Hit a button in the app each time you order another round and BarTab Keepr will keep track of your totals.
Scenario #3 - Last, there's a simply 'Tally' mode that will allow you to just keep an eye on your tab as it adds up (without the alerts or maximums), including customizable tips on a per drink or percentage basis. With accurate prices entered, there are no surprises when you close out your tab and get your final bill.
The interface is easy to use, with big buttons and recognizable icons designed to keep the interaction simple. Customized settings allow for a tab on any given day to be tailored to your favorite bar or club, including prices and tips.
