MUNICH - Whether you want to know how long until you're sober, flirt with like-minded single revellers or where to stumble home after a few, help is only a click away at this year's Munich Oktoberfest.

Amid the pageantry, oompah and lederhosen associated with the world's biggest folk festival, a galaxy of ingenious apps for smartphones and tablet computers this year have blasted the 202-year-old party into the 21st century.

The "official" Oktoberfest app was already proving popular with visitors, with more than 75,000 downloads. It enables users to input their weight and height, as well as how many "Mass" (litre-sized beers) they have drunk and calculates their blood alcohol content.
