Caffeine Zone 2, predicts caffeine level app for iOS devices

http://caffeinezone.net


I'd like to tell you about an iPhone/iPod/iPad app that we created, Caffeine Zone 2.  Based on 
entering your caffeine consumption, Caffeine Zone 2 displays your caffeine level over time. You 
can set the display and alarms for levels of caffeine for optimal cognitive work, and also 
caffeine levels too much for optimum cognition and too much for sleep (these levels come with 
defaults).  With use you might adjust your caffeine consumption, and for example, drink more 
decaf coffee.  The lite version is free and includes ads, and the paid version ({jumi [bulletin/bulletin_item.php] }.99) has no ads.

It would be particularly useful for people who have varying sleep patterns (e.g., shift work), 
people have trouble falling asleep because they consume caffeine too close to sleeping, and people 
who are interested in the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of caffeine.

This work was initially created with support from ONR.  It has since been released by ONR and PSU 
to a small company to develop it that is run by Dr. Frank Ritter.  Dr. Kuo-Chuan Yeh (computer 
science, Penn State) helped create it.

More information is available at http://caffeinezone.net/ .  The software can be downloaded from 
the iTunes store.  A number of free copies of the software are available for media and for 
government evaluators.
