Now on tap: Fremont Oktoberfest iPhone App

The antidote to iPhone App fatigue may be a pint or two at the Fremont Oktoberfest, but how do you choose from all the different beers?

With the new Oktoberfest iPhone application, of course. The show this week released a free app to “help streamline navigation of the festival” taking place Sept. 18-20.

The app details the styles of beer being poured, plus it has the ability to rate beers on a one to five mug scale. Ratings are shared with other users, so you can beeline to the best offerings.

There’s also a map, including locations of entertainment and the bathrooms.

If this sounds cool, you may want to also download Avvo’s “Last Call” beer counter app, which estimates blood alcohol content and suggests taxi services and DUI attorneys.
