Greatest educational app ever  nyken1  5 star

Bravo to Elevate for making an educational app that’s as fun as it is well-designed. Enough challenge to make it fun and enough reward to keep one interested. The diversity of games is impressive. Nice work!


Keeps you on your toes  ppp1958  5 star

I am very good at reading and writing, but am finding I need math practice. It definitely makes you think!


Elevate - Do not download!  CDB376391$  1 star

Do not subscribe to this. I have contacted customer support to stop the automatic renewal ($40) - they were NO help and I still can’t turn off the auto-renewal.


S c a m  Noone.  1 star

Advertised as a free app, but as soon as you get to the actual functions- it tells you you're only on a 14 day trial and that a subscription is required (70$!!) to continue. Ridiculous. As a poor college student, that price is just out of my range. 10/10 wouldn't use again.


Great training  AudrBan  4 star

I would give five stars if it was a one time payment instead of monthly payments especially if you don’t use the app daily


Decent application  tf2-yung-plague  5 star

Clean and intuitive interface and very aesthetic graphics. Although only allowed 3 games per day, I have no complaints.


Speed  1X1X1x1x7  5 star

Is my speed the thing that is keeping my excellence down? I complete all answers and many times I do not get an excellent.I need to know what the speed needs to be before I can understand the whole process


Making me smarter  Clumsy86  5 star

I feel smarter after using this app! Love to improve vital skills in game form!

NoName chosen

Fun  NoName chosen  5 star

Lots of visuals sounds and and increased difficulty and-variety. Very complementary with success but u can definitely lose ur turn. Only criticism is the reading exercizes max out in the 350 wpm range...

Evike Violeta

fun and learning  Evike Violeta  5 star

I started this game about 10 days ago and it had been a great experience. The lessons are all interesting, designed to meet your level of comprehension, yet challenging. I definitely recommend it to everyone!


In-app subscription request before trial 👎  matt_d_rat  1 star

I appreciate that as a company you exist to make money, and to continue development on the app you need users to pay for it. But I find it a little cheeky, borderline dishonest, to ask for an In-app subscription permission before I have started the 14 day free trial, banking on the fact that most users will be absent of mind and forget about it, falling victim to a charge for a service they may or may not want depending on how their trial goes. If you have the ability to detect when the trial has concluded, why not ask for the In-app subscription at that point in time, rather than before? Until this is changed I will uninstall this app and my review will remain at 1 star.

I spit da troof

Quite engaging  I spit da troof  5 star

Animations and sound have an encouraging effect on the experience. Going to try and keep up with the daily program.


Subscription garbage  Isaacn86  1 star

I hate apps that are monthly or yearly. Do you notice how everyone does it? Try being different. Peak brain training had a 1 time purchase, and guess who I threw my money at?


Charged during trial  Haritjani  1 star

I have been charged during trial. Not using app at all but charged for full year.


I agreed to a trial, not an immediate subscription!  vmm8830  1 star

I wanted to try the app to see if I liked it, I put my finger in for a trial and was charged immediately instead of at the end of the trial period!


Absolutely amazing  Chacha1984.aus  5 star

Only wish you could buy each game as you go along for the poorer people


Rip off  Alitomarshall  1 star

Don’t sign up!! Expensive. Trick you into buying with free trial!!

Flat Cat Designs

Beware! Has you sign up then charges you  Flat Cat Designs  2 star

This app says nothing about subscription services from the App Store. Then you fill out email and your details, but then tells you that it’s charging you?! People don’t mind paying a flat rate for an app but this subscription rubbish is getting out of hand. And not for a simple brain train app for your phone? You have to download, sign up, do a quiz....THEN tell you that you that you get a ridiculous short free trial or need to pay subscription fees?

Ms Mit

Service turned me around  Ms Mit  4 star

I had previously written a poor review which is below. Completely separate to this I had an email chain going with [email protected] Since the events I described, I’ve received attentive and genuine customer service from the developer. They’ve surprised me to the point where I now believe I was in the wrong to denigrate them. So, yes, some poor customer experience followed by a surprising and genuine effort to make me happy with no hidden agenda. Thank you, Elevate. A very rare and welcome outcome to my complaints. Previous review Poor experience and expensive- don’t do it This app signs you to an expensive annual subscription by stealth. Be careful where you put your fingers after the trial membership- you might end up with an unwanted $70 App Store transaction like I did. Elevate claims they can’t do anything about that, it’s all the app store’s problem... Meanwhile I’ve paid for an annual subscription and I’ve deleted the app in protest because I don’t really want to be as brainy / intelligent / mentally agile as people who do business this way. Hope you have better luck than me, but if you’re reading this review for advice - mine is there are other apps out there, and no need to engage with a poor business model.


Can’t manage subscription without using email  Thiswontletmechooseanickname  2 star

Can’t manage subscription without using email. Antiquated and frustrating. Games are good tho.


Never can learn too much  LovePeaceEquality  5 star

This game has helped me to remember and refresh on all the skills that have some how lingered away from me over the years. We leave grade school and venture into either more advanced education or the work field leaving behind the most simplest of attributes that we’ve learned. I recommend this game to all all ages. Thank you Elevate!


Wish it was still free  Tiana552919  3 star

When I first downloaded it, it was totally free and the game looked really well made, it was fun. Then I deleted it and tried to redownload it, but now it’s only for a 14 day free trial and then u have to pay $40 a year :(


App keeps crashing  cdkfbotddbo  1 star

I like this app but it continually crashes lately


Great app with worst subscription updated  srpete  4 star

I used my 14 day trial. Loved the app. Came to end of trial and ended up paying for the app twice. Contacted Apple support to get one cancelled. Somehow I no longer have the pro content I paid for. This is deceptive and wrong. Ultimately I just cancelled both since there does not seem to be a way to contact the app developer. Good luck if you want to try. Updated after I contacted customer support. They were very responsive and took care of my billing issue. I am going to resume my training.


Practical use, fun and addictive!  LatteLady220  5 star

Love the challenge of beating my own high score. I learn something new every day!


efficient!  Phiphiphophum  5 star

i was looking for something to slowly sharpen my mind. this is super calming with color palate, clock placement, its all great. thanks.


Simple, but helpful mental exercises!  BellaBlu31  5 star

I use this in conjunction with Lumosity. This app has a lot to offer in comparison and at a low cost (free version).


False advertising at its finest  lizpham  1 star

Yeah the games can be entertaining and fun, but what are you really learning? Speed learning is great and exciting, but you’re better off using other study and learning methods if you’re trying to “train your brain”. Don’t pay for this, it’s just a trap.


Bait and switch marketing techniques  aef4now  1 star

Just looked like a fun app, and similar to another one that I use. Little did I know in signing up they “automatically“ subscribe you to an almost $40 a year subscription. And you have to go through a dozen hoops to get unsubscribed. Absolutely not cool. Somewhere BEFORE the sign-up process there should be a very clear indication that if you sign up for the free trial you will be automatically billed. The app itself might be great, but their business techniques are sleazy.


Scam  fokitunes  1 star

Few of the exercises found here are any better at training your brain than any crossword or other “training” method. The scam here is they charge you for the use of something that you can do for free elsewhere. Try just doing daily cross words or number puzzles or here is a shocker crack open a book .


Excellent  Hdkkdkjdjdjjfkk  4 star

Definitely try this game if you’re looking forward to a brain workout


Good stuff  Uzoho  5 star

Very interesting and mentally tasking, I love the estimation!

Awesome App

Beanie rocksss

Great app explanations need a bit of work  Beanie rocksss  5 star

I love the app over all but I do find the explanations for the games quite hard to understand.


Great app  V1llianous  5 star

Really fun to play when you are bored! Excellent on the go considering it does not need wi-fi. 5 stars

Buster Mulcahy

¡¡Nobel Prize Worthy!!  Buster Mulcahy  5 star

This is the best brain training app hands-down, and possible the best app of all! It is so fun and seemingly effortless to expand your knowledge, the creators deserve a noble prize! Maybe even in every category!


Great App, interesting metrics, excellent support  o[~_~]o  5 star

Enjoyed the free trial of this app and find the scoring metrics interesting insofar as you can clearly see when you are having a good day or a bad day, when you lack focus or are sharp. Had a payment hiccup when going pro (not their fault) and was very impressed by the support team for this app as the issue was quickly and comprehensively dealt with.


Elevate the Great  rainbow375  5 star

So easy to use and really great games ! Amazing !

Chappie Dexter

Good  P. Parvanov  5 star

Keeps your mind sharp. Good for expanding the vocabulary of non-native English speakers


Great learning tool  Leonmusafir  5 star

Love the app but bit expensive for pro version


Nice ui but cost too high  GTA_D  4 star

Great app for mental training. Tasks provide a decent challenge unlike other brain train. Love the progress monitoring. Only one draw back I would pay for it but I think it's over valued. Would definitely sell more at a lower cost almost €50 for a years membership - nope


The best ever. Really helpful and enjoyable.  Tyuirw  5 star

A must have!


Elevate  P_Kwazo  5 star

Brilliant brain teaser.


Soooooooooooo horrible  DJ CJTTLOL  1 star

This app is so 👎😖 it said age 4 so I downloaded it I loved the reviews it said how old are you I said I am 10 and it said you can’t be playing this game if you are 10 I mean come on !!! Please don’t download this app ✌🏽

Cereline V

Disappointed.  Cereline V  1 star

After watching the video and reading it’s Apple’s app of the year I’m quite annoyed that the app won’t even launch on my phone. It doesn’t even open.......


App crashing on opening  norberto66  3 star

As above. In addition I would say that it is too expensive. Now how do I get the app to work? Thanks


Educational  SyroxOd  5 star

It’s very useful. They make learning quite fun


Meh  Gfyjnfjvvhkkjhb  3 star

There used to be more activities one could do without having to pay for the pro version. It feels like there are too many apps grabbing at ones money these days and I can’t pay for them all. Without paying this app seems really boring now.

King Thabs
