Description

The Fit Brains Trainer app is the easiest and most enjoyable way of keeping your brain sharp for just a few minutes a day. The app is available on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon for iOS and Android devices. Fit Brains Trainer is based off of the scientifically-designed brain fitness program, Fit Brains, developed by Dr. Paul Nussbaum, one of the top clinical neuropsychologists in the U.S. with more than 50 peer reviewed publications. The app includes more than 360 games & unique training sessions that are designed to enhance the 5 major brain areas of Memory, Processing Speed, Concentration, Problem Solving and Visual skills. The games automatically adapt to your skill level and recommendations are given based on strengths & weaknesses. Additionally, Fit Brains Trainer tracks your performance with tools & progress charts. You can download “Target Trainers” like Fit Brains: Focus Trainer or Fit Brains: Memory Trainer (iOS) to focus your training at different brain areas you know you need to improve.

Review Highlights:

Move over Sudoku, I just found my new favorite brain sharpening activity! I love that it compares my progress and "brain strength" to other adults my age who are playing the game. It adds a competitive element that motivates me. All of the games (speed sort, spot the difference, find it fast, coin calc., matching pairs, missing pieces, shadow shapes, quick blocks, paint drops, stacked discs, perfect patterns, sequence squares) are addicting and fun. The fact that the game is adaptive based on my responses makes it even more enjoyable. The activities are always challenging but never frustrating - just right.

Fit Brains develops cognitive skills quickly and effectively. I was able to watch my progress as it slowly got better and better. Skills such as visual, focus, memory, problem solving, and speed are introduced and thoroughly tracked while you play. I really like the stacking exercise. It forced me to think in ways that are completely different from other thinking based apps. It kind of reminded me of the folding or unfolding exercises that are asked of you in some cognitive or IQ tests. The focus or matching exercises were fun as well. It was a child's game but timed, and with a lot more variables. I'd highly recommend this app to any one who wants to sharpen their thinking skills.

I can feel my brain growing. I highly recommend this app.
