  • Enjoyable and challenging, but

    A few things: A) Speed is the overarching theme in all the games I’ve played, which is somewhat annoying. B) In the math facts game, the enter button doesn’t always engage. Sometimes I have to hit it twice. C) I never get to play the “Language” games, and I’d like to play all the “Problem Solving” and “Math” games not just a few of them. I am leery of purchasing the “Premium” subscription with all the negative comments regarding how payments are retrieved.
  • Great, but...

    This app is amazing. In challenges your brain. But it only gives you 3 games to play everyday. To get all of the games it is a little bit on the expensive side. It is rewarding. It gives you points and everything. It has come out with new games too. I think it is a great app, but please unlock more stuff without you having to pay money. 3 stars is the way I see it.

    While the games are fun, the cost and constant advertising for the premium version of the app are annoying. I'm tempted by the premium version just because I enjoy the games, but the cost is ridiculous.
  • Cost/benefit

    Without either being locked into a cheaper yearly rate or paying $11.99 a month this app is essentially worthless. It’s a great idea for an app and I can see the potential benefits of playing all of its full features daily. That being said, If you don’t have a lot of disposable income, you’re better off finding other apps that provide the same trivial challenges at a lot lower cost. The games can be fun and challenging but forcing you to have to pay for the fourth and fifth daily game to be provided with your score is preposterous. A great idea that was meant to help people strengthen their brain and help avoid problems like dementia has been turned into a huge money grab. Not worth even the download unless you’re willing to either fork up $59.99 for a year or $143.88 for a year paying monthly. Great savings if you think you’ll play it for an entire year; pay for five months and get seven free.

    I like the games. Many to choose from however, being timed makes me anxious. I suppose that will get better as I continue?!

    Love it. I can really “feel” by brain “working” on some of these games! A few negatives/suggestions: Some of the definitions/synonyms on “Editor’s Choice” and “Word Snatchers” are rather confusing and/or obscure. I’d never use some of those words and/or definitions to get someone else to guess the one word I was after or trying to unscramble. (I’m thinking of my favorite game of “Taboo.”) A game more similar to “Taboo” would be a fun addition! I LOVE the developing game “Feel the Beat!!!” (I’m on Level 11.) What I DON’T love is the horrible sound made when you miss a beat. It’s so INCREDIBLY unpleasant and distracting that it almost surely guarantees you’ll miss more beats. It’s intrusive, flustering, and, in my opinion; unnecessary. You can SEE when you miss a beat because of the “x” displayed, so PLEASE consider ditching this horrible sound before the game becomes permanent! I don’t think I’ll ever get past Level 11 on “Pet Detective,” but I enjoy trying. “The train game” (whose name escapes me now), is my favorite permanent game. The “Relaxing” and “Stress Relieving” sections have been very helpful at times, as well. I just wish they were longer; or there was one that you could keep running on a loop in the background on your phone; even after you click away from the app. Please come out with more games more often for us to try. Thanks for a great tool!
