2017’s top Brain Training Apps
Sometimes, when you find yourself running about here and there, it’s challenging to sit back and think about self-improvement. That said, the busier you are, the more important it is that you make the time for you. Exercising the physical and mental aspects of your well being are both important. So, with that in mind, here are Asda Mobile’s top picks for brain training apps.
BrainHQ The exercises available in this all-encompassing app aim to address the root issues with memory, rather than simply teach compensatory tricks and memory drills. Instead, many of them directly target the base cause of memory and thinking – which is the ability of the brain to absorb information from our sensory organs: eyes, ears etc. While some brain training apps focus on memory, BrainHQ claims to be able to improve your hearing in crowded places, help you excel at work and much more. Bold claims. Give it a try.
Downloaded over 10 million times, Elevate is a Google Editors’ Choice award winner. With over 40 brain games that increase cognitive functions like focus, memory, processing, maths, precision and reading comprehension, a couple of minutes with the Elevator app a day, and you’ll start to see the benefits.
Elevate helps you by gamifying learning. In other words, it rewards you for increasing your accuracy and speed, and you can track your progress so that you can see whether your training is paying off.
Eidetic In the Eidetic app, you use a technique called spaced repetition to help you memorise anything from an important phone number to key words or facts. If you’re studying for an exam, this is a fantastic way to cram facts into your brain in a short amount of time. All you need to do is enter the information you want to memorise, and then the app will send you a notification when it’s time to test yourself. By spacing out the tests over time, you’ll quickly learn to retain facts when you need to.
Luminosity If you’re new to brain training, this is probably the app to get stuck into. 70 million people are already using Luminosity worldwide, and billed as the cognitive science app. It offers users brain training games to exercise mental muscles, helping you to make mental improvements that will help you in other areas of your life.
