Top 11 Apps Every Coffee Lover Should Have

Do you love coffee? You should have one of these apps!

Up Coffee

Available in: Apple, Free

This app is fantastic! Apple, as always, has a great selection of apps with features we can’t even imagine and this one is no exception. This app measures your daily caffeine intake. Many of us use caffeine to help us get the energy we need on a daily basis, but even so, too much can be harmful.

That’s why the Jawbone company launched Up Coffee, to help you visualize how much caffeine you’ve been consuming and the impact it’s having on your health. The app asks you for some personal data and your coffee habits. Then, you have to manually upload the caffeine you ingested. For this, there is a list of the most common drinks, sweets, supplements and foods that contain coffee.

On the main screen, you will see a stomach with brown dots representing caffeine. The more brown dots, the faster they move. But the app itself removes the dots as your body eliminates the caffeine.

In addition, the app comes with a wristband that monitors your sleep, much like a smartwatch, and makes predictions based on your daily caffeine consumption.
