Nootropics / Supplement Tracking App *suggestions Needed*

Didn't get much of a response from general section, so thought I'd get you all's opinion / input


 


 




Hey guys, I've been interested and involved with nootropics / supplements for some time. Although there is plenty of technology out there that can help to test cognition (Quantified Mind, Dual-N-Back options, Cambridge Brain Sciences), I find that there is something lacking for nootropics specifically.


 


I've decided to get an app built that would be useful for me when taking nootropics, but I would love to get your input as well. This is (99% sure) going to be a free app, which is just helpful that I'll put on the App store for download.


 


One of the things I was thinking about was:


 


- An app that includes places to simply track cognition (by entering scores from the cognitive test in question) along with the stack. For example, someone would track cognition on creatine online for a week, then they could add piracetam and see how their cognitive tests alter the scores. People would still be using things like Cambridge Brain sciences etc., but they would be able to keep track of it all in one place and graph it


 


- Creating an app that could utilize the supplement tracking functions graciously provided by Stevo: http://forum.bulletproofexec.com/index.php?/topic/5281-track-your-supplements/


 


- Friend named Ryan (Biology Hacker on these forums) mentioned it might be cool to do a subjective app to test nootropics. His point was that taking those tests is bound to improve scores anyway, so why not just give a scale of 1-10 for certain features. This might include something where you choose the stack and then have a series of rankings from 1-10 including focus / attention, memory, creativity, clarity, mood, etc.


 


What else might be beneficial? For people who don't take nootropics, but utilize MCT oil or BP coffee (or even supplements for the body), give me a few ideas that might be useful!


 


Will keep you guys updated when it's in-progress and done.

  • Awesome. Is it going to be for Android too or iOS only?


  • Should be both! :)

    Sounds pretty nifty. Will it include some sort of "standardized" brain teasers that you could do daily to see the improvement in areas (spatial memory, memory retention, memory recall, short/long term memory improvements)? I think that would be nice, and also maybe a timer/alarm for when your next dosing time approaches...and a log to include your stack information that could maybe be like the AnTuTu benchmark records (think a online stack roster for everyone using the app, so you can see what worked for other people).

  • Great ideas! Will try to piece it together and implement.

  • How about tracking side effects of your stacks. Say headaches, spacey, drowsy, anxious, etc... That way we can go back and see where a stack that may have been good for cognition may also have caused a headache or made you overly tired, etc.

  • Any progress for the same ?

    Curious as to how this is coming along :)
