UP Coffee is the simplest way to understand how caffeine affects your sleep.
Behind its delightful interface, Jawbone's world-class data scientists crunch numbers so you can learn about your body’s reaction to caffeine effortlessly – without becoming jittery or disrupting your sleep. Pair with the UP app by Jawbone to find out if afternoon pick-me-ups keep you awake at night, by how much, and what you can do to sleep more soundly. Don’t have an UP tracker? No problem. UP Coffee is for everyone.
See how your caffeine levels change throughout the day as you down espressos, energy drinks and even chocolate. UP Coffee knows when you’re WIRED and how long it will take you to become SLEEP READY.
Learn how your body reacts to caffeine through a series of data-based reports. Check in with UP Coffee when you drink, and even when you don’t, for just 7 days to reveal your Caffeine Persona. Keep tracking for 3 more days to reveal the relationships between how much and when you drink with your bedtime, sleep duration and nighttime awakenings. Knowledge is power, so get buzzed.
What's New in Version 1.2
• UP Coffee is now integrated with Apple Health. Caffeine logged in UP Coffee can now be viewed alongside all your other health data.
• Bug fixes and performance improvements.

Love this app! Better sleep quality
I have been using this app almost every day for 10 months. Love it. I just caught a glimpse of a review that said "what if I don't drink my whole...[whatever]" - um, I use "custom espresso" for that. For ex, if a 12 oz diet coke is 35mg of caffeine but I only have 6 oz, I put in that I had 20mg "custom espresso." There are even inputs for tylenol, chocolate bars, specific choices for Starbucks versions of drinks (they brew coffee 2x strength, so it has more than homemade/elsewhere, as does their iced coffee). You can input your height & weight which you can update at any time, as you can your target bedtime, so it is always telling you projections based on YOU. Also, one tab will tell you your usual sleep total after x range of caffeine, so you can see your patterns over time as you keep records! Oh, & you can even tell it your level of caffeine sensitivity (which it takes into account), which you can also alter later based on what you learn from the app itself. Whenever I think to have more caffeine, I input it BEFOREHAND to see what the results will be for my quality of sleep, & act accordingly. Such better quality of life in the last 10 months, esp. combined with my Up Jawbone & Up app. (And no, I'm not being paid - I wish; I'm just that pleased.)
What if I don't drink my entire cup of coffee?!
Sure, the bouncy balls in the Erlenmeyer flask are fun to play with, even if it does slow down the phone and eat away at battery life. And sure, the app data syncs with Health and other apps. And great, your sleep data from the "reliable" Jawbone Up syncs to tell you how your caffeine intake effects your sleep. But actually this app is really just about the bouncy balls. The data to Health is far from accurate considering a) the database of caffeine-based beverages is painfully and uselessly small, and b) the app doesn't allow you to input the actual amount of said beverage you consumed. Has anyone heard of fractions? I may pour myself an 8oz cup of coffee, but only have time to drink half of it. Or worse, ⅔'s. Adding up larger drinks may appear to be problem-free, but only if (and I repeat: fractions) you're having cups in measured doses of 8oz, 12oz, or 16oz.
And don't even get me started on how incompetently it predicted restful sleep!
So why am I not giving this the absolute lowest star rating available? Because bouncy balls.
Small Database & Needs 2 Way Sync
The database of drinks and such is very small. For example, it lacks the Starbucks Refresher product that's been on the market for awhile. Secondly, it is not very good at evaluating custom drinks. If you order a dirty chai with a double shot, it should be able to estimate the caffeine of 2 espresso shots and 1 chai tea bag. The other major complaint is lack of two way sync even with the UP app. Add something in UP (or other food tracking apps that sync into UP or via the Health Kit) and it does not pull caffeine consumption info into UP Coffee. Effectively you have to choose between counting calories in UP and counting caffeine in UP Coffee. But since there is 1 way sync, if you track in both you end up doubling your calories counted and time spent.
All said, I know this is experimental and there are flaws. I am happy to help test beta products, but there needs to be effective and timely follow up on issues and change suggestions.
