Apple may have banned apps that helped drivers find DUI checkpoints, but it has approved a game where drinkers try to follow a straight line to see how drunk they are.
This $0.99 app, with the jaunty title of “Drunk – Follow the Line,” is a little more cautious than some: the age limit is 17 (though that’s still underage for drinking in some countries) and it carries a big warning that says: “Note: this is not an actual alcohol test.”
Like a lot of other questionable and controversial apps, it was approved abroad first, this time in Italy, but is available in the U.S. iTunes store. It’s the handiwork of Miode, which also peddles another type of app that plays peek-a-boo in iTunes due to rules — a router password finder.
There are dozens of drinking game apps for sale in iTunes some of them approved for all ages — despite lip service to “drinking responsibly,” — not exactly keeping the family-friendly image that Apple says it wants for the store.
