The Jawbone's Up Band has been around for a while but now they are targeting our addictions with the app "Up Coffee." The reason is simple: The more you track your consumption, the more aware you'll be of your over use of caffeine.

Here's how it works:

You enter in your drink choices as you make them throughout the day. The app will track the increasing quantity of caffeine in your body through simple ratings like: Edgy, wired, or sleep ready.

And, if you go to have another cup of coffee, the app will advise you whether that is a good idea or not, based on your caffeine consumption so far that day.
