You're at a party, or you're out in town and you have a spare five minutes while your mate is in the toilet, the immediate reaction is to start texting. More often than not though, that's a terrible idea.

To prevent these foggy lapses in judgement a group of developers have created the Drunk Message Blocker, an Android app which blocks your access to WhatsApp, Snapchat and social media during a certain time.

You simply set a pre-determined time and then the app simply locks you out of those apps which might be deemed 'at risk'.

The next time you try to open the app you'll be greeted with a stony silence. Unsurprisingly because of the tweaking that needs to take place on a software level it's only available for Android users so those of you with an iPhone might need to find an alternative solution.
