Researchers develop app for predicting effects of coffee and caffeine
The app produces graphs of individuals' projected caffeine experience by allowing them to enter information about their prior and projected consumption, and then integrating that information with existing data on the effects of caffeine.
In calculating its results, Caffeine Zone is able to factor in the total amount of caffeine consumed, the intervals between consumption and the rate of each consumption.
The Caffeine Zone app is available on iTunes as free (with advertisements) and paid (no ads) downloads for Apple devices.
