How does it work?

The effects of jet lag have been show to be reduced by taking proactive steps, such as altering your sleep patterns or exposing yourself to sunlight. The JetLag Genie takes your flight info and personal sleep preferences to calculate a plan with these steps, specific to you.

When do I use it?

Any travel you take that crosses 3 or more time zones, for business, pleasure, or both, as long as you want to be more alert when you arrive at a destination.

How well does it work?

While results do vary from person to person, most people will benefit to some degree from following the action plan the JetLag Genie provides. The closer you follow the plan, the better the results.

An App Born Out of Necessity

After suffering awful, nauseous, trip-ruining jet lag on numerous trips from the United States to destinations such as Dubai, Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Jakarta - ok, ASIA - I decided I wanted to understand how to beat jet lag. Well as it turns out, there weren't, and aren't, many good resources that help you easily do so. So, I did my research, and constructed a way to help other travellers, for whatever purpose, to take active steps before, during, and after their trip to shave the hard edges off of jet lag...and so you have the JetLag Genie.

I want to make the JetLag Genie the premiere jet lag planning app for people to use when they want to travel far and want to minimize the amount of time and pain associated with jet lag. It's a real plan, and if you follow the plan, you are going to help yourself.

So, thank you for your interest in the JetLag Genie, and do send me your stories about how well the app worked for you, and what improvements we need to make. We will continuously enhance the app to make it work for the most people. Feel free to shoot us a message at anytime.
