Kalsarikannen - The best brain training app ever!
As someone who struggles with some memory deterioration and constant information overload and who takes mental health very seriously, I always look for ways to improve the neural connections of my brain. After coming across Impulse, I figured I would give it a go. I have just completed the 30-day brain workout plan and feel real improvement now: it becomes easier for me to concentrate on the particular task and my working memory seems to be better as well. Not sure whether the same may be fully related to the use of this app, but I don’t care as long as I see results. I have bought the lifetime plan and consider this as a huge investment in my mental health.
Planning to start a new workout but not sure whether to go for 30 or for 10 days. It would be great to see some recommendations after finishing the 30-day plan.
Also, I enjoy solving brain-teasers a lot. Just a small suggestion here - would be really interesting to see how other players answered to brain-teasers.
The only thing I wish this app have is more training areas, like creativity, brain speed, etc. Also would appreciate more games and exercises (still, worth to mention that the developer adds new content regularly).
So, it’s a legit app and thank you for creating it.
Nana_Su - The best app for a cognitive boost
Thanks to this app I now know personality type and have been more of myself. Knowing how i am on a scientific scale has helped me narrow down on my strengths and weaknesses and has since improved my ability to connect with my family, friends and even in my marriage. Everyone I know has taken the personality test and has inevitably had the “Ahah” moment. Upon sharing with others we all say” well that makes sense. “ This app has fantastic games that are challenging, fun and really get the brain juices flowing as they get harder. I really like the diversity in games and the fact that they all challenge in different important skills. My favorite are the ones where you have to put a box together in your mind and be able to rotate it mentally to see all sides in order to be able to answer correctly. Another good one is the math challenge. Frankly for anyone like me or otherwise with the desire to see the world from multiple perspectives and solve problems with practical yet unconventional methods this is a great app to get short form challenges to stimulate the mind.
Heyarron - Simply amazing.
I saw this being advertised on Instagram and had been in the mood to get back into brain training. I truly believe everyone should have a brain training app, but this one beats them all. I’ve used the competitors BAXK in the past when I was in high school, now that I’m older, I can say this one has a more in-depth method of training and the games are really addicting. So much so I don’t want to do the recommended games, I want to play them all! But strict habits are good long term so I keep reserved, haha. Anyhow, they have different areas of brain training. You have your daily, then you have certain sections, I.e: Memory, Mental Math, etc. I got the 50% lifetime and honestly best money I’ve spent. If you want to sharpen focus, mental math, or even just feel like you’re not as ‘sharp’ as you used to be, you need to get this app and the subscription to follow. IQ tests on here and that’s something I’ve never seen those other apps have. Grateful for discovering this organization. I don’t even write reviews but this is one that had to be written.
Mganwe Shikoto - Love this app!
I don’t usually write reviews, but in this case, I decided to make an exception. So glad I came across this app a few weeks ago! Thanks to it I finally realized how poor my math skills are... But the thing is they were not like this all the time! Back at school, I was really good at math, not the best in the class, but really good! And look at what happened... I avoided doing some simple math on my own, thinking it would save me some time (or maybe I was just lazy), and as a result, having faced the tasks in Impulse math category, I saw how big my problem is. Huge, actually. The tasks and the games are not that difficult, they really aren’t. And back in the day, they would be a piece of cake for me. And now it feels like starting all over... But the good thing is that doing it with the app helps! I’ve been getting better and hope for more results!
My only suggestion would be to include more games to the Language category, just like Math it seems really useful. Oh, and the math lessons! They’re amazing! But it took me time to find them. Thank you!!!
MinaMayneminks - How much I like it
So far I have played the game for two days and I like the fact of being challenged . and not knowing what to expect next. This game so far seems to give me a challenge based off of things that we have to deal with every day in daily life issues. Whether those things are good things or bad things, things that you have to ponder on etc. it challenged you and took you out of your zone that you may have been in at that moment. I’m looking forward to learning new things expanding my brain span ,and being challenged daily, because what I’m beginning to see go on in this world… we need to stay woke ,and pay attention to what’s actually happening before our eyes while being distracted with daily nuances. So we all need things that we can focus in on daily, to help keep us focused on what’s important .I think this game will be a segue into that for lots of people that find it hard to multitask at times, becauseWe get distracted. Being able to focus is important for anything that we do in life, and I think that this game is just fun tool that could help.
NoraJ.K - Amazing brain workouts!!!!
I didn’t expect I need anything like Impulse, but after watching the ad on Instagram I decided to try. And I’m so happy I saw that add!! The app is amazing, user experience is so neat and the color scheme is perfect. What i like the most is that I only need 5 min per day to stretch my brain muscle. So I complete daily brain sessions and feel really better (on a 17th training day now). Pricing is a bit tough in case of taking a monthly subscription, but I successfully utilized the Christmas offer the app proposed. Just for the price of 4 cups of coffee I now can have lifelong brain training!! I would advise the developer to add some brain music and sounds, say for focus, productivity, concentration (I personally consider this to be crucial for effective working or studying). Apart from that, are you planning to add some training streaks? I noticed in other apps that this feature motivates me the most. But anyway the app is great and i recommended it to my friends and family (and i’m not the type of a person to recommend every stuff i see)
Cakb777 - Careful not to “impulse buy” all your money away in this app
I got this app thinking that I could relax by doing some fun puzzles for free. I have never seen so many lengthy ads that force you to interact with them as I have in this app. Due to the annoyance of having to deal with the same lengthy ads after ever one or two free activities that I did in the game, a pop up came up saying that I could get the great deal of having ads blocked for $2.99. I went ahead and did it. Then I kept playing and ads kept popping up. When I contacted the app customer service about this they replied that the ad block was only for that one specific puzzle out of all of the activities in the app. They also said this was “clearly stated” in the pop up, which with I disagree. All I saw was the words “ad block for 2.99.” If I had known, I would not have paid for that and I would just have probably deleted this app. There are other comparable apps that are interactive and good for different types of brain training, albeit in separate apps, but unless you pay for this app (which is actually a subscription either weekly or yearly) it is too frustrating to use.
BetaPreacher - I got this out of an impulse buy, but…
It’s great so far! I originally got it when I saw the AD on tik tok. I thought it was gonna be another bad app, but it’s actually not. It actually gives you exercises and games and tests that allow you to see things in a different light and jog your memory on things that maybe you need more focus on. For me, I need focus for my job. It’s extremely difficult to focus sometimes because I have so many things in life that I’m dealing with, and I get cluttered. This allows me to be active for my brain in my off time, because honestly, everything else started getting boring, even Tik tok! It doesn’t feel mindless and boring, allowing me to at least grow while in my spare time and not wasting seconds, hours, days on mindless entertainment. The best part is that they’re not the same questions every time, math problems, vocabulary questions. If you need touch ups on your brain and maybe need to learn something new, this is the app for you!
Johnybeast1 - Useful app
An amazing discovery for all those who search for self-improvement. I wanted to use my time in commute in an efficient and fun way and that's why I searched for brain games in the first place. Impulse absolutely lived up to my expectations! I love their workouts - a little bit of work every day gives me a sense of fulfillment, it's not that I just played some goofy game on the phone, I actually DID something to develop my memory and improve focus. One thing to consider there is the brain-boosting habits, maybe it's worth paying more attention to them? Very often they seem appropriate and cool, but since they're not explained or anything, I just ignore them.
If the workout is not enough for me, I can always go to the games and spend as much time as I want playing whatever game I like. My favorite category is Focus, so I play it the most, and recently I noticed that it became easier for me to concentrate at work. Probably, I'll try to binge-play other categories as well, hope the results will be just as good!
Georgiablondy45 - Exercise for your brain-best app!!
I am a recoverinopen brain injury from about 10 years ago. My mind is not as sharp as it used to be and I have a very hard time remembering things, especially my short term memory. This game has helped me tremendously and I can actually feel the difference in parts of my head that haven’t been used, (if that makes any sense) in such a long time. Granted I’m not the fastest one to complete the task but I do get it done. I can tell a slight difference within my memory issues and Ive only been doing it a couple of weeks. It feel so rewarding to know that I can “wake” my brain up in certain areas. My neurologist recommended a application just like this to try and get me healthy results and it makes me feel so much better no more embarrassing moments when I can’t remember something mid sentence. Great app, I love it and would most definitely recommend it to neurological patients.
Ashleyenicholson - Chemo Brain & In Love 😍
After going through chemo a few years at 30, my brain doesn’t function the way it used to. I love this bc it’s helping retrain my brain, improve memory and executive function skills. I had to do this with art too, to get my creative mind back. I always enjoy brain games for stimulation, I had it for one night, found myself playing it til 1A Ooops and decided to spend the $40 for the lifetime game. I like to invest in my health and this will be sooooo beneficial to get me back to my A game.
I was going to neuropsychologist and she gave me similar exercises. This is so much more cost effective than medical bills! They still don’t really know what causes chemo brain and there aren’t really therapies out there for it, so I’m all about trying anything that will help! It’s totally worth it, coming from someone who does not buy apps and uses free version of games…I made the exception for this one! 🤍🤍🤍
Moon@bookstore - 1) after all it has been
I fear brain doctors, for their worth of advice. That is all “ it is called a tooth” when first started legal tests. I was told I would have a different reflection other than what I am , I am here taking this review lightly! And I want to learn self inspiration out of the many things I had to learn and do. Thank you for the app! I will use it to the best of my conscious betterment to evolve a better connection through a history that was commuted by war. And I value my life with most of all and a higher being does not bother me of just a shoulder shrug. HBO brain games since I was a kid. Was not a topic but today’s question. The brain doctors were part of my sympathetic life in hope of my pathetic being. I may feel a bit strange, but walking out from the light felt like a dead nail. Thanks for the app and please review my review with thumbs out!
CougClaws - Awesome for recovery from TBI/non-traumatic brain injury
A few years ago I bled out. Shouldn’t be here. My brain showed little activity. My speech was a mess. Short term memory gone. Processing speed was horrible. Critical thinking skills lacked. Staying on task impossible. The Aphasia program was awesome, but dropped working with adults during the pandemic.
This App is pushing my brain in ways the Aphasia program used to. I’m an athletic person and am used to working up a sweat from physical activity…well this App can make me sweat. That’s how hard it’s making me work. It’s awesome. I’m scoring up 99% on tasks in comparison to other users. Considering what I’m recovering from - That. Is. Awesome!!!
Exercising the brain will provide improvements and give results beyond what the experts say is possible. All you have to do is work your brain off and anything is possible. ♥️
Purehoetry - Fun, helpful, beneficial to your life!
I was hesitant to try because some “brain teaser” apps I don’t find useful enough for the price, but this one is well worth it. One of the only few educational apps I would put my money into. It is free to try, but to unlock access to all of the content does require a subscription of $7 weekly. However, you will find that these games are addicting, helpful, and aesthetically pleasing. They give you a very calming mindset and are lots of fun. I could play them for hours. I have noticed a great change in my day to day life since I started playing it daily. My awareness is sharper now. I find coming up with words in conversation is much easier than before. I am able to remember certain tasks and responsibilities that I would otherwise have trouble recalling. Such a wonderful app! Keep improving.
#LovesToDance - I’ve been looking for an app like this!
I absolutely LOVE this app! For a long time, I’ve wanted an app with multiple bite sized brain challenges or puzzles to be able to solve. This app gave me just that! I love the Workout section (or at least the free workout so far), and although I haven’t had this app for long, I can definitely see myself using it for a while. I haven’t bought any of the subscriptions, but I still feel like I’m getting a lot out of this app. So, if you can’t afford the subscriptions but you still want an app like this, this is a great choice. I can understand that some people might get frustrated and or annoyed about the amount of ads, but compared to a lot of other games I think the amount of ads is worth it. Overall, I personally love this app and I would definitely recommend!
Pureboi92 - Pretty Fun and Useful
I’ve been using the app for a couple weeks and really enjoy it. The games are pretty unique and helped me understand what skills I’m good at and which ones I need to train more. I like that the “Progress” section shows you the average score for each category and specific game. I think it would definitely be nice to see the average score based on training skill too. For example, I noticed that my “Selective Attention” was high based on the high scores I got in a few games. I also noticed my “Working Memory” wasn’t as high based on some lower scoring games. I think it would definitely help seeing that in the “Progress” section so we can keep in mind what we need to work on. Maybe even some links to research articles or something for each training skill would be useful too
Sutten M - Buyer beware
Frankly, this app is great for what it is. The games are fun, and the tracking is great. However, I was misled when I purchased a life time copy of this game. Perhaps I mis understood the nature of the sale, but this is a subscription service HOWEVER you can also purchase life time access to this app by paying a lump sum fee up front. I chose to do that during a sale they were having specifically for that deal. This was a few months ago.
After purchasing that life time access, I was STILL charged monthly for the subscription. I feel like I was mis led. Not accusing anyone of saying that it is a scam, but these guys 100% need to work on their wording when they say “life time access after paying this” but not explaining that you also have to pay a monthly subscription fee. To that end, buyer beware.
3 stars cause the actual content is great. -2 stars because the way they process their transactions are mis-leading at best.
CharlieMahealani - Satisfied
My entire life I have been considered a quite intelligent person by many standards but after experiencing a brain injury, memory loss due to ptsd and other mental health struggles and the general brain fog of motherhood twice over I often feel underwhelmed by my cognitive ability. I’m always subconsciously on the lookout for any way I can try to recover what I’ve lost. On a whim I downloaded the app with no expectations, unsure if I would want to go beyond the three day trial. After just the first day, I knew I was going to be investing in a subscription. The games are actually fun (hubby thinks so too) and the assessment aspect makes it easy for me to get a bit competitive. There are insightful quizzes and helpful “brain workout” plans. I’m not sure if this will have any long term, measurable effects but I’m not disappointed at all!
Will184858293 - $6.99 weekly aka $28 a month, STILL HAS ADS
If I recall I signed up with a trial. Very shady to have such a high price and list it weekly. There are some beneficial games but not worth it in my opinion. There are dozens of plan options but really I was surprised that I was subscribed on this plan, I don’t really remember doing it and I never would have intentionally signed up for something with such a high weekly price. If you get this app just make sure to really figure out how much you’re paying, what you get, and how often.
Also, for that price I still have to watch lengthy ads in between each round? I don’t understand how this app has such high reviews when there are plenty of other apps with similar or better games for an exponentially cheaper price or free, and this is the first one I have come across that charges you weekly.
To the developers, please don’t bother responding unless you significantly decrease your pricing to something reasonable, and fix this ad scheme.
Cyrusun - Great App
Fun and lots of games that keep my brain a little sharper. I liked the IQ test, it was pretty fun and challenging. The personality test was okay but I didn’t really like the fact that it made you choose between only two options per question when some of the words or concepts are definitely situationally more complex than to just choose between the two extremes.. but I get the point and of course as it says it isn’t an administered test so I didn’t take it too seriously. But the games are great and I feel like they help get me in a sharp mood.. if you get an offer to buy the yearly package for like 16 bucks, it seems like a good deal considering a lot of the games might have their own app with advertisements and you of course get more than that with this app..
Whomahwhatsit - Simple entertaining challenge
I don’t play many Mobile games, but I like this one, just a few minutes of game play to train the brain, simple math problems part is I think a really good one to help keep you sharp especially if you have a job that constantly has you doing math problems like dealing with money or measurements. Another one I thought I’d be better at is the arrow game, I was mistaken 😅 swipe the direction of the white arrow, no problem, swipe the opposite direction for the yellow arrows, no problem super easy, let’s just say I was a little overly confident especially when you start to speed up. Typical watch ads to play for free. Subscription for no ads or one time purchase. I’m probably gonna one time purchase once I get tired of dealing with the ads.
Nyxphoenix - Great mental workout . I recommend
Been playing for two days and so far I really enjoy the exercises . I love puzzles and games that challenge my wit and strategy . Helps to unwind and relax my mind or stimulate and inspire in a positive and beneficial way. It has features also to tailor to the intensity of what you are going for mood wise . I don’t like games that unnecessary stress me out , but I do appreciate a challenge that motivates my focus and observation as well as creativity. It serves it purpose, so far so good . I recommend it. I enjoy finding patterns, connections and visual /spatial aspects as well as language and reading comprehension. Looking forward to the math exercises since I know I could really use the practice and encouragement to strengthen those skills.
Npursell - Sad
I was extremely interested in this app based on the reviews. However, I was also extremely disappointed. I wanted to try the trial version before committing to purchase. I didn’t make it past three days before I was fed up with it. For the free trial app, you have to watch an ad before each game. That is understandable and I have no problem with that. However, when you click the “watch ad” button, the app just brings up a spinning load icon without going to the ad. It will do this three or four times before actually taking you to an ad. More than once, I had to just completely close the app and start again. It did the same thing. It is almost like they are trying to make it so annoying they force you to purchase the upgrade. They have definitely lost a customer here. Before you ask, no I do not have WiFi or service issues. Every single other app on my phone works flawlessly and without interruption. This is definitely on Impulse’s end and it is very sad.
Magillicus - Great so far
I’ve only had it for 2-3 days, but it’s exactly the type app I was hoping for. I assume, as the app states, the games will continue to increase in difficulty as I progress. Even the initial games have an appropriate difficulty level, though. I also like that I get notifications during the day to play more…which, oddly enough, only seem to show up when I’m idle. Each game details its focuses before you begin, which the app determines based on the preferences you set when you sign up. I generally don’t have large amounts of time to dedicate to entertainment-based apps (outside of fantasy football), but this self-improvement app is one I look forward to opening each morning.
AnitaMinet - Was I charged??
Who do I call or speak to about an unintentional charge? Before canceling my subscription today, “Restore Purchases” was pressed and I received a pop up saying I purchased the lifetime upgrade, which I don’t want at all! I made sure to go into the App Store to cancel the subscription immediately after. I want to make sure I wasn’t charged almost $40 for a game!
That being said, I enjoyed playing this game. As I’ve grown, so has technology, so anything before high-tech computers and phones seems primitive. I can honestly say I still enjoy reading paper back books, but any old techniques for challenging my brain are so outdated now. Good game filled with good puzzles. If I could afford it, I’d love it even more.
Northside ella - Great app
This app is awesome to help keep you on top of things. Some people and up laying back watching videos all day and that doesn’t work your brain. I actually had to think in these Little games, I had to do math, I actually had to remember where things were in place, and I had to match items that. It may seem like and the games are games that we played when we were younger, but in all actuality when we were younger they were meant to help stimulate our brain and make it work at a point to. So if you think you’re slipping a little bit maybe forgetting too much or things to start coming to you fast enough give it a try and see if it works for you it’s working for me
THENETKA - The brain, gotta take care of it!
At first I was skeptical when I saw this Ad on Instagram but I told myself “what do I got to lose? Just a little bit of space.” And ever since that moment I’ve been having a blast and keeping up with my streaks.
The games aren’t that difficult when you first start and very easy to pick up, there’s also creative games you can play aside from the 3 brain training games a day.
There is a subscription you can acquire to unlock more features for the app but I can’t lie, the free version is just as good as the paid! I do see myself acquiring a subscription in the future! Looking for something to keep that brain active in a world of mush definitely give impulse a go!
Yvngvlone - Great Brain Exercises!
When I play these brain games I focus better than I normally would. I think that stems from the fact that it’s right on my phone. Normally I would find my self anxiously checking my phone throughout the day not really focusing on anything for too long. But now whenever I feel bored or restless I’ll open up the Impulse app and I’m able to just tune in and get some good metal workouts going while having the comfort of being right on my phone. Because let’s face it. Our phones are an extension of who we are now. So being able to use our phones to strengthen our brain is honestly the biggest benefit of this app. I’m no longer scrolling endlessly. Restlessly. Relentlessly.
🌻⭐️✨ - 😡😢
I have a few things to say... I downloaded this app as I wanted to excessive my brain and knowledge, keep in mind I am still a minor so I use a family account... This scammed me and my family, as even if you delete the app it still charges you until you remove it from your subscription (I deleted it before the trial ended) we did not realize till a month after! So now even after we removed it it still wants us to make the final purchase, this money could have gone to so much better, it could have gone to family time or donations but instead it goes to scammers like them! There is a rainforest burning and and kids dying of hunger...and instead of people who are privileged to even own a phone shouldn’t have to pay for something as useless as dumb brain activity...that you could probably do online for free! If I could rate this app I seriously would and I despise talking about things this way but I honestly hate this app! If I could give it a 0 I would...
Awesome Game!!! :D :D - Best Brain Training App To Use!!
My father got me the app, Impulse to train my brain. At first, I was pretty confused why he gave us that app. I’ve been playing it since though and it really my brain out. I loved the app! The way things were designed, the challenges, the brain-twisting, the fun… I loved it.
Now, I am a Middle School beginner and I forgot about the game six months ago and randomly stopped playing it. I saw my brother playing it and I asked why he’s on his phone. He told me he’s plying Impulse so I remembered… and I downloaded the game on my phone. It got better from six or ten months ago! Especially how challenging things are. I think the creators and developers have done an awesome job on this game!
AngelaAretz - Outrageously overpriced
The games are fun and the app is well-made but after my trial version expired, I discovered that I’m paying 8 dollars PER WEEK (and that’s with a 30% discount) and there is no easy way to end your subscription on the iPhone application. The company makes it all too easy to sign up and intentionally difficult to cancel your subscription. In the meantime, you’re paying 28 bucks a month— which if you keep it, ends up being almost 340 dollars per year! I’ve used many brain trainings apps and none were even close to being this outrageously expensive! Even intensely involved video games (with very advanced graphics and complicated storylines) don’t cost even a tenth of this to own for life! I’m truly appalled at how much they’re charging and disgusted by their use of “free trial” to lure people into paying an exorbitant amount for something that isn’t even worth a fraction of what they charge.
Would NOT recommend, unless you have disposable income.
Novaliseeeeeeeeezzzzzzcedezzzz - Impulse
It’s a nice game it definitely keeps your mind sharp and tests your focus the only downfall is they try to sell every little level up and continue to after you decline. I mean after it’s declined it should not be pushed on you the way it is. once in a while cool but it’s too frequent. A lot of games have it where you can play without purchase and make in app purchases if you choose. Again this one has that but it seems it’s there just to pressure you to buying more. Over all what it’s intended for is good fun and a challenging game, WITHOUT the purchases!! So five star for its design and reason for design but 3-4 stars for profit intentions and aggravation from pressing the issue honestly….
AshBash325 - Essential Brain Exercise
Alzheimer’s runs in my family on my maternal side and I’ve found that as I age and near 40, regularly spending dedicated time working my brain muscles on activities unrelated to my personal life and/or work are what keep me feeling mentally strong and reduces the fear of developing dementia later.
Of course, there are also many benefits now, years before I have to be actively concerned about brain degeneration—improved attention span, quicker processing, better memory. Impulse is great for those times you’d otherwise be mindlessly scrolling social media; the games are fun and the advantages are many. Highly recommended for those wanting to optimize their brain health!
Fradys - Solid (Pretty Fun Also)
You know what, I bought this a few months ago because I thought it would be good for me in the long term. Was I right? Heck yes. Even though I used to procrastinate doing it after seeing the little notifications each day, I’m starting to realize I actually enjoy doing it and I no longer see it as a task. The way they set up the games are enjoyable and I can already tell that they are helping me. I also like how there an IQ tests and self tests to help understand yourself greater. 5/5 star app as far as I am concerned. I think it’s healthy for the mind to do stuff like this. I recommend anyone to give it a shot!
Bri maxwell - Great game but i have two problems
This is a great app to have in my opinion for me because i just find the games calming but genuinely i hate the fact that almost EVERYTHING is premium. If i take the time out of my day to do one of these quizzes i expect results not just what it is and literally nothing else. If i want to play more than 8 games then i feel like i should because there is at least 30 games on there and just about only 8 are available that is just a little bit insane. And THE ADDS the adds just make me so angry even though this app is supposed to be calming. If im doing a word search i dont want an add halfway through . Other then these things it s a great app over all.
Ccrcmedic - Best mentally challenging game
I stumbled across this app while trying another as usual. Then I started with a couple questions and before I knew it I was hooked. I have only had this app for <24 hours and half of those hours were playing! I love the investigator/riddle mode! The scenarios ask a question and the answer is “FREE TEXT” and could be correct… (Not sure if they read the answers and get back to me …) I have PTSD and I try to find a method to ease my angst … the only thing that I don’t like is how expensive the app is for continued use (after 3-day trial)… I know the App “Headspace” gives an extended free use (1-Year) for people like me during a pandemic.
ThiccXHarlet - DO NOT TRY THE “FREE” TRIAL
I got this app for the iq test the app it’s self is good if you want to spend $37 on it just for games to test your skills, I did the free trial to do Just the iq test (something that should be free) I canceled my trial because I got in a work accident and am not getting a lot of medical leave check. And to be honest I didn’t want to keep the app anyways. Because I canceled my trial they are charging me $37 for no reason. It says they charge if you cancel on the 24hour mark but exactly 24hours before the trial ends it pays for the next subscription so You get like 2 hours to cancel or they will charge you. I don’t have money to pay for my broken foot let alone $37 for a game subscription cancellation fee. For that much money you should get the app for free until you feel you don’t need the app anymore. DONT GET THIS APP 😡
Sablesai - Pretty Good!!
As someone who can be a little skeptical of simple games improving your mental focus, after playing it for a little while I can honestly say that I do feel like I’m being mentally stimulated while I play these games. I think with all the entertainment and distractions that occupy our brain space on a daily basis I would definitely encourage others to give this app a try if they want to do something that’s going to be proactive and keep their mind sharp. The prices also seem reasonable and doesn’t seem like it would break to many peoples pocket and the trade of would be well worth it.
Maniac2xs - Way too many adds & subscription offers!
No complaint as far as exercises & games, but that only goes so far when after every game you play &/or button you press either leads to an add or them trying to upsell you on subscriptions. Usually when an app offers a free trial they won’t bother you until the trial ends; not impulse. The free trial doesn’t grant you access to anything, it’s as good as not subscribing at all. Once the trial ended & I decided to subscribe weekly, they had the audacity to upsell me again with a 39$ one time payment immediately after I paid 6$ for the week. I believe the upselling & adds are counterproductive to the apps purpose. It’s ironic that the app meant to help me focus is the same one distracting me. I understand adds & subscriptions fund development, but it’s never that serious…
Itsyogurllilly - Hi!good review here :3 buy it :3

Rezurektionist - Great for restarting your mind!
I had multiple heart attacks in 2004 & 2006. After that I was put on disability which was f course in that time frame was the opioid epidemic that still rages on beyond this steroidal cold & flu (China virus). After my heart started to straighten out in 2017, I got clean and I’m back to working full time. Something is foggy in my brain though. I’m startled very easily and my concentration is far from what it used to be. These tools are helping ease my mind, use it again like a muscle, and all around better my life. I appreciate apps like this and the minds that went into the process of thinking about healing a dysfunctional mindset. Thanks!
Kyliedyke - good game
i think this is a really good game and it makes me happy that they ask for feedback because it feels like they actually care about the people playing the games. I like that i can play this for free with ads but also if i didn’t want ads i could pay for a subscription. i also like that if they do include ads they don’t bombard you. the games are challenging but not too challenging to the point where i can’t play. it makes me feel accomplished when i do play a game and get it right because i actually have to use my brain to figure it out. definitely one of my new favorite apps
Wickd Wendy - Training Your Brain Is Fun Not Work
I’m 59 and I’m a college graduate and I found to my surprise that the app is fun and my brain can definitely use some training. My IQ has been tested at above average before college and then I took the IQ test in the app and I am only at the average level yet it only took me two days to get back to the point I was as a youngster but I can see where I can benefit from further training. I can see I slipped because since I’m disabled now and unable to work any longer and I’m not using my brain the way I used to I have lost the edge. Well this app makes it fun to see if I can get that edge back.
LRK7717 - Fun and challenging app!
Impulse has so many interesting games and exercises that challenge your mind in so many ways. It even reviews some math lessons if you need a refresher. It does cost a little money. In the registration process it makes it seem like your cheapest option is a 3-day free trial and then $6.99/week but then I clicked on the x and was able to start to play. Then a screen popped up in which you need to guess where the reward was and I found an 89% off coupon. I decided that $0.57/week was worth it. Good luck finding a good coupon! Try not to get addicted like I am!
Mini.Mousse - Something to smile at
At work I have open space at random times while I wait for customers, so having a game to play in the meantime that’s got variety makes the day more enjoyable! The visuals are also very pleasing, it’s not the most funky app but the simplicity is nice, it’s different than what I’m normally around. It also keeps track of the days you’ve done in a week, which I am not personally the biggest fan of but I’m sure someone would appreciate it. There is additional practices/games able to play for cash, but even then the free ones are enough to appreciate the app.
Are there no nicknames anymore - Great App
I’ve definitely noticed some improvements in my ability to focus and hold more information in my brain at once, which I struggle with. So this app works for sure. I purchased the lifetime subscription as I’m very fond of brain training apps/games and I’m definitely glad I did with this app.
I hope the developers will cycle in new games so that mastering a brain skill continues to be fun. I’ve nearly maxed out all the games and I’m not sure I would continue to reap the training benefits once I have because I will probably stop playing the games with no new levels to beat.
Lys Brooke - Wow
Honestly, when I downloaded this game I thought I would be bored of it after a few minutes. But there are so many different games and puzzles you can do that you literally have so many options to play you just never really get bored. I downloaded this game yesterday and I play to at least level 25 on each game before I moved forward to try another one. This game is super fun and he’s there are some parts of it that are locked until you pay for it but you still have so many options to use for free! I really do love this game!
Ginger_123 - Worst app ever.
This is by far one of the most greediest companies ever. I downloaded this app because I saw it on Facebook. I then deleted it because it costed money. (I did this forever ago and forgot I even downloaded it). I got a call from my bank telling me that someone in California was trying to charge money to my account on ITunes for 42 dollars. I thought someone stole my information and was trying to buy stuff with it. So I cancelled my card, and got a new one. Every time I try to download something on my App Store, it won’t let me because I owe money. I thought it was because of my card being cancelled until I got a new one that still didn’t work and called Apple. I’ve been trying to get these people to delete the charge from my account and they aren’t replying to me. And I’m not going to pay the money for a subscription I never made.
XXhackssss - It has potential, I just don’t want to pay for it.
Look, it does actually match the ads that promoted it, which was nice, unlike some games. However, paying to get your results seems kinda like a jerk move. You know you don’t HAVE to squeeze every dollar out of people that just want to take tests and puzzles to relax! I got this app thinking it was going to be playable (due to its 4.7 rating). Turns out those people who rated it are probably either really rich, really gullible, or complete liars. This game is not playable, I’m tired of being asked to pay yearly/weekly (I’ve only played this game for 10 minutes now), and can we have the option to get our results by watching an ad? At least then this app might get 3 stars outta me.
Btrfly9 - This app is stealing my money!!!
UPDATE: I will give credit to the developer for reaching out. The app did not charge me a second time. I did cancel within the first day of having the app and it should not have charged me at all. So I will give this 3 stars instead of 1. I downloaded the free trial and played for about an hour. It's not bad but I decided I did not want to pay for it. I cancelled after about an hour of play. Looking in my subscriptions it said it expired in the three days. HOWEVER on the third day (expiration day) it charged me $6.99 for 7 MORE DAYS OF PLAY! When I open the subscription now there is NO CANCEL option, only renewal options. You are ripping me off!!!! Reporting your app!!!

Tray76 - The best app to keep you focused and challenged!
This app has helped hugely with my focus and anxiety.
When my anxiety becomes overwhelming, I can play a puzzle or game and within minutes, manage to calm my thoughts and get back on track. There are a variety of games, puzzles and never ending levels to refresh the mind and keep you challenged. The tests for IQ are great. This app is worth every penny with a range of options to keep anyone engaged, easily my favourite app of all time!
Tayla811 - Difficulty Cancelling Subscription
I’ve tried to cancel my subscription with this app, the only guidance is that I can cancel the subscription in settings. However I am unable to find this option. I have tried to contact Atom Operations the development company for advice but have received no assistance. I’m happy to change my review once this issue is sorted as the games themselves are quite fun and engaging however until then I’m disappointed that it is so difficult to cancel the subscription. I’ve followed links you’ve provided to others with a similar issue however when I’m taken to my subscriptions it says I have none to cancel. I know I started the 3 day trial with weekly payments from there so I’m unsure why I have no subscription to cancel before the payments begin.
Thenuts69 - Great brain stimulation
There are so many games and puzzles that gets my brain working. I find it so addictive that I can’t put it down. I feel I want to improve my scores and alertness and just love most of the games I have so far been tackling. Speed and accuracy are required and I find I am excelling in certain formats and under performing on others. Concentration is paramount. Certainly the best tools for mental stimulation!!!
Nessterepo - Trial mode
I love it! On day 2 for trial. They test your academic level, and your brain training is based off your test results. Yesterday was great not too hard and not too easy, today it’s been an awesome go again with fun activities that makes you laugh and not frustrated as if your in actual brain training school 😊
MZF81 - Best app for your brain improvement!
Honestly, when I first bought this app I was already thinking about how I would cancel it before the 3 days was over because I’d had so many bad experiences with other apps. NOT TRUE WITH THIS APP!!! I love it’s simplicity as well as the levels. Fun and challenging too. Highly recommend!!
Bj n Jules daddy - A LITERAL AD TRAP
I get it, it’s a good app. Very immersive and catering to your wants and needs however, every single time I open the app I get a prompt to sign up at a 96%! Discount!! Wowie! How great 0.51$ per week.
Now I know that isn’t a lot and for the service they provide it’s probably a good deal, but when you play the free version it makes you want to throw your phone! I played this one game that had an ad after EVERY level! What made things worse is that it took me <10s to complete the level then I was stuck with a +5s ad between each level?!
Just complete bs.
Pizzahamburgersparkles - Fun and educational
Impulse has really helped and improved my brain. It gives you loads of activities to do each day to keep your brain in check and smart it’s fun more than anything doing them and you don’t realise you’ve learnt anything. Until you do! Totally recommend this app
Durkinopoulos - I feel productive
Much better than goofing off at social media. I actually believe I’m doing an exercise which will improve and maintain my healthy brain function. With a history of dementia in my family, I’m feeling these exercises will help reduce my chances of goi g down the same route.
Satisfying Stop motion - Subscription plan
I know the app has to get profit somehow, but honestly it’s just rude to allow someone to do a test on the app that takes about 20 min, then when they finish it you need a subscription. If I were these guys I would just make it so before they did the test, something would pop up telling them that they need a subscription to do the test. No hate towards you guys I just feel like it’s unfair to not warn everybody about it. No hate
Pentlsta - Impulse
I really like this App. My brain function has increased after only a handful of goes. I’m now addicted :)
It’s a great thing to do during my downtime and it’s obvious that prolonged use will really continue to help overall my cognitive function as well as short term memory.
Super_Smiz2000 - Good 😊
I started to use this app yesterday, and I amazed on how you don’t have to pay for the whole thing, yes there is still payment for premium and seeing full results from iq test and such but it is very fun.
But that’s just my opinion.
TessaVic - Jump Start
Just what I need! A jump start! When you feel like falling behind with the youths of today or just feeling dumb! This app has slowly but surely helped reassure that I still have it! A good motivator and very addictive! Has it helped? Definitely! What’s the 1 start difference? Well, the more I use the app will tell….
Professoractually - Absolutely amazing!!!!!
I love Impulse. It is sooo helpful for my anxiety and lack of concentration. I use it every single day and I’m addicted. There are so many fun activities and best of all, you can set goals for yourself and what you want to achieve. I love it so much. 100% recommend.
Stevo6154 - Dishonestly forcing purchases
This app is free but to read into anything it requires subscription fees or to purchase reports separately within the app and most of their content is widely available free online elsewhere for example IQ tests and the Briggs Myer personality test. After doing the IQ test and declining the subscription, a pop up offered for me to view the report without subscribing. I thought great but when I accepted I was conned into paying $7.99 for a report I could get for free online.
L0lly23 - Great app! But just one thing….
This app is honestly really good! I am in school and I need to keep my brain sharp and strong.
This app tests your brain but also makes your brain work better (I guess you could say).
It has been a worthy download for me.
But there is one problem…
The amping of ads. Every time I finish a level or two levels an ad pops up.
It is extremely annoying. If you developers are able to do anything about that it would be greatly appreciated!
Claree.s - can’t access all of app
Great app - but it doesn’t seem to let me try any other categories other than memory! I want to do a different one for a change but the others don’t show up! I’ve even changed my preferences to select all areas to improve except for memory, and it’s still the only one I seem to be able to access?
Ly_theunicorn - lyla’s review
okay, this is such a great game overall and its so much better to let your mind relax a bit, it includes little games like wordle. but there is one thing, ads, there are WAY too many ads, and it makes it a little bit difficult to play
Bradjh.90 - Cool and solid app for brain circuits
The app has some solid ‘mental-workout’ material.
The design is clean, the games are a fun level of challenging, and the science is proven. Would recommend for people who are keen to ‘get out of their own head’.
D18194746 - Great app but…
I like this app except for the explicit ads. I haven’t subscribed as I want to see if it’s worth it. I don’t mind adverts when doing this, it’s to be expected. I do kind game adverts that are sexual in nature. Parents may get this for their kids to use, so rethink the gaming ads you have on here.
Vanlieshout - Repetitive
The app looks great, the idea behind it is awesome but all the puzzle questions are the same with different numbers and pictures. All the iq tests are exactly the same every time around so it isn’t a very accurate test after the first time around. If you fix these the app would be great!
Reviewnicknamestaken - Have removed almost all free functionality
Was a great app with a few free games. They added new games and reduced how many were free. Now seems the only way to play (for free) is using the “30 day challenge” - which I don’t want. I just want to play endless hours of memory, and the time trial “count as far as you can” game. Clearly don’t want to pay $30 (or whatever the subscription is) for the privilege. Loved this app, but now can’t use without paying. Sad face!
I&Tanjo - Quick, easy and fun
I am trialling the app and I must say I enjoy the games/exercises. I’m not sure if my results are influencing this response given I seem to be doing quite well ;). Maybe I’ll just take it! Good fun. Thanks I&Tanjo
8Jefferson's3 - Surprising
Is kind to find an app that seeks to develop a better mindset for its users and then to point a social development for those around the ones making use of this great application.
Creative_curious - Superb and amazing
Best mind games so far to train various areas of our brain with clear instructions and increasing levels of difficulty to progress further. Keep on doing to achieve optimum output by practicing daily.
Ryjvem1127 - App update scam lol
I downloaded the app a while ago. I liked it so much that I started telling my partner, fam and friends to download it. The games are hella awesome I get to try different games too. Then today, it recommend updating the app to allegedly fix the bugs etc. I updated it and now for every game I want to try, it makes me watch an ad or upgrade to pro? :( also can’t access some games unlike before
JRamirezS3 - Questions about the IQ test
How is this iq test measured? I have this question that I’m not that sure if this is a proper iq test or just created by the app? So can I trust to this test result? Are the statistics based on offical pages? Thanks if you can answer
Ranmini - I love it
Games are fun and short. Only takes few minutes but great training . Only thing I don’t like is the advertisements popping from time to time. Otherwise great app! Thanks 🙏
@YoDaddY" - Thanks
Ads still annoying, but they tell you how to get through them faster, appreciate it
Ant30166 - Absolutely Awesome
The game truly challenges your brain and makes you have to think quick. Well worth doing to keep up your abilities to think clearly
KittieK@t - Amazing
Absolutely love this app, it is giving me challenges and I had never done an iq test in me life. In 36 and found out I have an iq of 130.
Which has given me more confidence to go for a promotion. Thank you.
Narrell1 - Awesome
Throw back to playing brain trainer on my friend’s Nintendo DS.
I find some of the activities on the app to be relaxing and some to be quite challenging and mind boggling. Great way to work out the brain. Highly recommend
A..1235829292l - Amazing!!
Helped me sooooo much since I really am not a math person and isn’t really good. But this really has improved my confidence on doing it and solving math equations. Definitely recommend!
MrOms - What a great little app!
It’s actually quite big! There’s so many games and puzzles that are so well thought out that definitely keep you engaged.
Djmintay - Impulse is amazing
I really enjoy the memory games and the options to continue to play even after the everyday goals
GT Aus - Impulse is my deep knee bends before mental exertion
Having been out of studies for quite a while I have found Impulse a great warm up before class and needing to mentally focus , process and retain information 😳🤔📱🤩
Lilyy.Amos - Really good
I thought impulse would be like really cringey, buts it’s actually good it has all sorts of games and puzzles to test your brain and it even has tests to see your iq, emotional intelligence and more.
Jitkem - Excellent
Absolutly love this app. I would highly recommend it to any one either looking to improve or just feel fresher and more alert
Samisosa03 - Really goood
They sold me, so many games , I feel like I’m getting smarter and quicker at thinking about complex or once hard hard things.
Reners - One of my fave apps!
I was happy to pay for the app as it is fun, challenges me and has lots of different games and features. Very happy with my purchase!
Edvhef - Take your money!!
I absolutely did not sign up for a subscription. I have never purchased an app that had an ongoing cost. If there was a warning about an ongoing subscription it was too small to notice. I have now been charged for several weeks of a subscription I did not ask for!!!! The app was also deleted within a very short period of the purchase. This is an absolute ripoff!
Apieindasky - Awesome well spent
It keeps your brain well oiled and open those memory banks that haven’t been used for a while .. thank you
KylieMM1 - Impulse
Impulse is a great way to get your brain working on the way to work in the morning. Quick, fun games that make you think.
Upgrade4567765 - Love it
I love impulse because there are so many things to strengthen your mind and there are literally no adds I love it and give it five stars so download it NOW PLEASE
Noozy19 - Delete subscription before it starts?
I downloaded this app not realising the whole thing is a weekly subscription...
I went to my Apple ID to cancel my subscription and it’s not listed there because I’m on the 3 day trial... how do I cancel before the weekly $11 gets charged? I haven’t even started using the app, I was too annoyed at the fact that it kicked into the 3 day trial without asking me.
T_S_M - Paid game with free ads, what a deal!
3 day trial, supported by ads…. What? Wanting to sell your game is fine, have faith that it’s good enough people will give you their money after the trial instead of the predatory lock them in & hope they forget tactic. Including ads on top of that in your trial is just gross. If only 0 stars was an option.
J-dizzle22 - Fun brain training
I like the way it makes me think and react quickly with fun brain games. It makes doing brain training enjoyable.
Ke111e - Love it
It’s interesting to know where you score is compared to other players
Beanie101178 - Great quick games to get the brain working
This app is helping me repair my brain and gives me feedback as to how I am doing. Love it.
Michaela and Co - Overpriced, poor accessibility
Was very excited to download the app. The first day is free and you can play the games, although it does constantly try to get you to agree to a 3 day free trial of all features, upon ending it will start charging you more than $15 a week.
After the first day, trying to play any of the games results in having to watch a long ad for a game that takes sometimes less than 2 minutes. And of course the constant “start your free trial” spam.
I uninstalled simply in fear I would accidentally tap yes, forget and start getting charged heaps.
Could be a great app, seems like they’ve sold themselves out though.
JJdabazinga - Basic is pretty good
The thing I love about impulse is just the basic plan is already pretty good. You get a daily mind workout which includes several games :)
Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!

Cela pratique ta vitesse, ta mémoire, et la vision de voir.
Ehbeige - How to cancel weekly membership?
Just would like to know how to cancel my weekly membership or switch to lifetime...
MaisieMouse6 - Won’t let me unsubscribe!
There is no where in app to unsubscribe. I tried it and don’t want to pay to continue. They haven’t even responded to my email!
Slavik.l - Can’t use the app without paying
Can’t believe the greed of today’s developers. Asking so much money for an app that 10 years ago would be 0.99$..
70$ for a lifetime subscription. Is that a AAA game that I don’t know off? Hope you guys share the profit with everybody at least and all the employees are driving a lambo lol.
Rewertou - Insulted
This app offers a trial period of three (3) days... not enough time to render a decision if I’m willing to pay a subscription for it or not. No link to unsubscribe... yes I know it’s Apple ... but a link? Come on....
Cpudvl - Junk.
You don’t get to play what’s it’s the ads.
You need to subscribe for paid membership before you even try something, or, you get to dive into endless ads.
This App is not worth money - Visit apple support to cancel subscriptions
Click the link titled visit apple support on the confirmation email.
TelcoMan99 - Rip off
As if you would pay for this. Lol

Chanelan1970 - Excellent
Jeu très intéressant
JJ_1973 - Scam
Where is the notice of payment and what you paid? All I did was click through an Instagram Ad. When I tried to reach the developer, the contact form did not work. Beware.
Devisister2 - 10/10 would recommend
Honestly I got this app because of an instagram ad and didn’t think much of it. However I started using it and was blown away! Not only are the games and workouts Entertaining but the tests gave me a lot of insight regarding myself and how I function on a day to day bases. Definitely will continue to use!
Fine, im not those then - Good game for my brain
I love it
Emi010101010 - I love the app!
I already wrote a review but I accidentally sent it to fast and didn’t write it properly lol, but this app is great! I love the games and daily expertises:D the tests are fun too! I just have a question is the IQ test accurate? I had a high score I just don’t know if it’s accurate though, I’d like to know c: But yeah the apps great definitely recommend!
Kalmia - Super jeu
