Update on Caffiend 1.3

I wanted to offer all of our users an update on Caffiend 1.3, our latest update. We have had the update submitted to Apple and awaiting their app review teams to clear us for release since late September. We had originally intended this update to coincide with the release of iPhones 6S and iOS9, so this long of a delay comes as a huge shock to us.

Our 1.3 update is fairly substantial, so we are quite excited to get it into your hands.

There isn’t much we have been able to learn thus far, but the review process for this update is taking much longer than usual. In the meantime, we have began work on Caffiend 1.4 and also have been addressing some holes in our drink database. Thanks to some reviews on the App Store and some email feedback from our users, we have added Costa Coffee drinks, a UK based company. We have also added drinks from Dunkin’ Donuts in the USA. We will be adding more drinks from some additional companies in the UK, including SSP, Caffé Nero, Wild Bean Café and Coffee Republic.

We are planning on expanding our drink list throughout other European countries during the first half of 2016. Thanks for supporting us as we move forward with Caffiend.

SHS Sports for Android Available!

SHS Sports for AndroidI’m very proud to announce that our first app for Android, SHS Sports, is now available.

We’ve been very busy working on building a great version of SHS Sports for Android over the last year and the results are great. We are almost at full parity with the iOS version out of the gate. Like on iOS, the Android version is free.

In related news, we have begun updating all the information for Fall 2015. I know we’re running a little late with this, but getting SHS Sports for Android out was a top priority. Now we can update users of both versions at the same time.

SHS Sports for Android can be downloaded from Google Play here.

SHS Sports for iPhone can be downloaded from the App Store here.

P.S – Columbus East and Columbus North fans – CE Sports and CN Sports will also be getting updates soon that will bring them into parity with iOS and Android. Stay tuned!

Update on Updates

We are making some changes to information previously released, so I wanted to clarify this for users for Caffiend. We had previously mentioned that version 1.2 would be coming this Fall and would include some larger feature updates. That plan has not changed, but the version system has.

We are going to move to a tick/tock update system for Caffiend. For those unfamiliar, this means we will be following up one feature packed release with a smaller, more focused, efficient release. So on to the changes…

Caffiend 1.2 is now scheduled to be released in mid-August. It features many optimizations and improvements, including a smaller install size, greatly improved search, another fix for the low res menu icons bug, improved updater, a new rating/feedback system, updated drinks, tweaked Watch app and UI improvements to the Journal and the Unit Preference panel.

The features we had previously discussed for version 1.2 will now arrive in Caffiend 1.3, which will be released in Fall, where update 1.2 was previously scheduled for release. Caffiend 1.3 will be a larger release and include the fully redesigned Apple Watch app, iOS 9 improvements and other features we’ll discuss closer to release.

Basically, our users will be getting an extra update, sooner, that will iron out some bugs, enhance your experience, and prepare the way for larger updates coming in the future. Thank you again for all of your support.

Caffiend 1.1 update released

We are pleased to announce that Caffiend 1.1 has been released on the iOS App Store. The 1.1 update is HUGE and includes the features our users have been asking for the most, including :

• The Journal – The journal tracks all items you have entered into Caffiend and sorts them by day. This allows you to see at a glance how your caffeine consumption varies day to day. This also allows you to delete unwanted entires from Caffiend and the Health app.

• mL support – Users in countries that use the mL standard instead of options can now choose which unit preference they want to use. This can be switched on demand.

• Daily Reminder – Caffiend can now give you a notification at a time of your choice to enter Caffeine. This is useful if you forget to enter your caffeine, because the reminder will only hassle you if your daily intake is 0.

• Bug fixes and more!

We are now planning out the feature list for Caffiend 1.2, which we hope to release this Fall. That update, as promised previously, is going to have a major goal of adding functionality to Apple Watch. We are also aiming to adopt some new iOS 9 features in this release.

Please let us know how you like the app, either by contacting us directly or by leaving a review on the App Store. Thank you again for your support.

Caffiend – Caffeine Tracker released!

Caffiend HomeWe are very proud to announce the release of Caffiend – Caffeine Tracker for iOS.

Caffiend takes advantage of iOS Health to enable you to track your caffeine intake and make yourself healthier. Many people struggle with falling asleep, and drinking too much caffeine can play a large part in that problem. With Caffiend, you can use our built in database of drinks, foods and other items to track how much caffeine you consume in a day. With iOS Health integration you can monitor this over time and even share with your doctor if you choose.

We also support custom drinks, so you can assemble a list of your own personal drinks to track in addition to our provided database. We offer quantity increments for drinks and also a favorite feature, which allows you to quickly access and add three “favorite drinks” right from the Caffiend home screen.

For keeping tabs on how much you have drank during the day, we offer a Caffiend notification center widget and an Apple Watch app and glance.

We hope you enjoy using Caffiend! It is available now, on the iOS App Store for $0.99. Get your copy today!
