Apps designed to prevent you from drunk texting

Posted: Updated:

Bad decisions are often made after a night of drinking too much.

But now, new apps are trying to make sure we don't do something we may regret.

"Drunk-Text-Savior" screens your text messages for curse words, unfortunate auto-corrections, and slurred typing giving its users a chance to avoid sending something they might regret.

A similar app called "Drunk Dial No!," allows users to lock certain contacts for a set period of time.

Another, named only "Drunk Text," discourages texting after or during boozing by shaming offenders with screenshots of their sloppy communications .

Unfortunately, when drunk, we do as we want - not as we should.

Any kind of safety net, digital or otherwise, seems overmatched against loosened inhibitions and itchy thumbs.
