Could be helpful.. I just started this and havent gone a week yet. The only thing I can't get pass through is the freaking n-back. I understand the information alright, but there is no information on what you will do on the GUI once you started. Please fix it. Thanks!
A great help Last year I started noticing my mind wasn't remembering like it once did. It was scary. First, I took nutrition which helped within three days. Then I began using this game with others. Immediately, I began to notice a difference. What I noticed is after about 6 months of use is my command of life has improved. On another program that competes world wide, I am 26th of the top 200. My life has greatly improved. For me, this covers a broader spectrum to help my brain than the others. Droid Bionic, and Xyboard
Helpful and fun Love this app overall. It has a nice look and functions smoothly. I just don't like the letter n-back exercises. The 3 back just throws me off and doesn't help. And competing with the world would better motivate us.
AMAZING!!! If I could rate this 100 or more stars, I would. This has a lot of content to it ( specially for being free ^_^ .) It challenges you but not to the point where you feel discouraged. It also explains how things work in detail; the whats & whys are answered. You're not left wondering " why am I doing this?" I have already seen an improvement in my memory. All & all this is must have for anyone who wants to up their game intellectually. On a side note; working great on HTC Thunderbolt on Verizon. :)
Good app but takes work This has been a pretty good app so far. Not quite fun enough to motivate you to use it without having to force yourself but am seeing definite and measurable improvements. One complaint is that isolating number and position exercises for Nback makes it really difficult to make the transition to doing both at once in the harder modes. Also other Nback games verbally announce the letters which not only makes it easier for auditory learners but also adds another pathway to the exercise. (Auditory pathways)
It really works! Ever since using this I've noticed a dramatic increase in memory abilities. Beforehand my memory was great but I had a problem racking through my brain trying to access certain materials. After using this app though my brain feels more organized and I'm not wasting 5 minutes trying sort through what used to be a cluttered brain. You have to make a habit out of using this app often and fitting it into your schedule. If you don't your progress will easily dissolve.
N-back is a continuous performance task that has been proven in several studies to increase your fluid intelligence. Mentioned in the Wired article "Forget Brain Age: Researchers Develop Software That Makes You Smarter"
