Doesn’t work
AbeAmirehIII on 8/18/2018
Won’t let me create an account which you’re forced to do if you want to play.
Great tool
Wedutch5 on 8/17/2018
Great too. For those seeking to challenge brains their brains ability
Great Brain training and fun
SFO Consultants on 8/15/2018
I like using games that improve cognitive functioning’s. Peak is both fun and challenging.
Can’t get rid of game acts like virus
xexecrc on 8/15/2018
Down loaded but didn’t want to keep so deleted but it keeps coming back Have deleted repeatedly and a few weeks later there it is again
Game needs bigger vocabulary
Feelmyart on 8/15/2018
For a game that’s supposed to be smart and help to train your brain, it doesn’t recognize a lot of words. It’s really annoying to type a word in the “Gro” game and have it tell you it’s wrong when it very clearly isn’t.
Upgrade purchased but does not give me access
willwblack on 8/14/2018
Upgraded to pro but it is not showing I have access to pro level. I have an apple receipt verifying my purchase. No help from customer support
“Watch video to unlock this game today”.
Cool gamer 1010 on 8/13/2018
I use to use this app every day on the free version but now it is much less enjoyable when it makes you watch an add for games that use to be free once a day.
Zilifrom on 8/13/2018
Love this game. Been playing it daily for months. Also feel that it is helping my memory and processing. Been telling all my friends!
App needs birthdate to register and play
SPAS99 on 8/13/2018
I can understand the app indicating it needs the year one was born to tailor the game, I do not understand why it needs my birth date. The privacy policy indicates the information is used with care. I however did not feel comfortable and hence deleted the app. Reviews indicate this is a good app, I am sure I will find substitute app that are more friendlier in their data needs.
Great mental calisthenics
El Rozier on 8/13/2018
I’m glad that I discovered this app.; however, the experience would be considerably more enjoyable if I wasn’t hounded to upgrade. The press began as soon as I finished my first “workout.” Perhaps its best to let someone explore a neighborhood before starting a sales pitch. Notwithstanding, I enjoy the program and will continue to work at trying to improve my somewhat rusty “citadel” - - - possibly upgrading sometime in the future. LR
Makes you pay for pro to keep playing
Hidhehbg on 8/12/2018
You only get to play once a day. If you want to play more you have to buy pro. No thanks
Love the games, but limited
JoeSmo652 on 8/11/2018
Love the games, but still debating if I want to pay for more than 1 per day.
Crashes on iOS All Of a sudden
kubanitaaa on 8/11/2018
I lost my 7 day streak because Peak crashes every time I try to open the app. Please fix!!
Very shady billing practice
VegasChiefsFan on 8/10/2018
The app has some promise. Seams like it would be interesting for quite a while and fresh, however, if you look at upgrading to PRO, it is all too obvious that they are trying to be deceptive. The screen says. 1YEAR =$2.93 (in very small print is the words ‘per month’) That’s wrong and false advertising. I’m very disappointed with this company and will have to rethink downloading any apps made by them knowing their Ethics are questionable.
Great game!
Mll6df on 8/10/2018
This is a great game that does exactly what it says. I feel like my brain is working better and quicker when I consistently use the app. When I don’t use the app for awhile and then play, I notice my scores drop a bit because I’m not doing as well as when I use it daily. The games are fun!
Improved cognition
Karen G 1234 on 8/8/2018
The game improves cognition. I highly recommend it.
You have to pay to play
ProfessorRBT on 8/8/2018
This was a bit of bait and switch. It said in app purchases, but doesn’t tell you that you have to upgrade to play anything after your assessment. There is NOTHING I have access to that doesn’t require money.
Sandman4x4Fun on 8/8/2018
Ok I’m not claiming, or pretending to be a genius, but I can hold my own and have scored fairly high I all the tests I’ve been subjected to when I enlisted in the U. S. Army back in 1973. Plus I’ve been told I scored fairly high in the battery of test to find my IQ, back in my younger days, that told my parents and I that I was a few points above average, so I’m not a dummy by any stretch of the imagination. I don’t know what the science is behind these games/tests, but I have to be honest, I thought I would do better. But maybe that’s a key, the more you do the more challenging it will get, but also easier over time.
Good Concept but needs better Execution
Supercalifragalisticexp....... on 8/8/2018
The concept of Peak is a good one but it is executed poorly, in my opinion. The main issues I have with it are: - Games: Some of the games are poorly explained. For example, because of the tutorial video, I played a Language game under the impression I could only make 3-letter words, resulting in a very low score. You are also not informed that the games increase in difficulty when you rank up, or how the game changes once you do. - Scores: Maybe I’m just salty (?) but I have a 14 day streak and my scores are incredibly low... I think? You are not told if you want high numbers or lower but I’m assuming higher is what you should aim for. I don’t consider myself a genius but I believe my mental abilities are at least average and yet my brain map never even comes close to that of my age group’s. My Peak brain score has never cracked 300 (and it appears to be out of 1,000) and additionally, at the end of each workout, I sometimes lose points in categories I never played a game in on that day. The issue is that nothing is explained: why did I lose or gain XXX points? What does my brain map and Peak brain score mean? What is good, what is bad, and how can I improve?
Lame options
JS317JS on 8/7/2018
Yes, you can play their 4 games a day they choose for you, but you can’t do any other puzzles unless you pay
Let non-pro train too!!
Wonderlandforfun on 8/7/2018
There should be more games available to non-pro players. That way we can train on our own. Not all games have to be for non-pro but some would be nice
Makes me think
SuperChickenDad on 8/7/2018
Really fun, slightly challenging. It’s nice to see my brain work in new ways.
Doesn’t let me play
luizkana on 8/6/2018
I just downloaded the game yesterday and I was happily waiting for my new workout today because the games are so fun. But the app did not let me play the games today and claims I’ve already played it even though it did send me a reminder to play earlier. Help anyone?
Needs better directions
CarolAnneRita on 8/5/2018
I like the variety of games. That’s a plus!! But when it comes to explaining the purpose of some moves in certain games, specific directions are missing. Sometimes I must replay directions several times just to see what the purpose of certain moves are.
Love it!
Tangmoez on 8/5/2018
I love this game so much, still on free version. I'm looking for 4ppl who can share the life time version with me! Contact me @ tangmoez with gmail :)
It’s fun but the charges are a ripoff
ghurzvnkjesvnkljda on 8/5/2018
I love the game, but they should really charge you up front. You can only play 3-4 games a day which the ai chooses for you. Other than the costs and game chooses it’s a fun and challenging game. When you play on the Apple Watch you have 3 game choices, personally don’t like any of them. I don’t recommend using it on the watch. I personally am not interested in the monthly of yearly subscription so i haven’t tried the whole of the app. From what I have seen the game is worth it either way!
Can’t do anything without PRO
dianakovv on 8/4/2018
The games are fun and stuff but if you don’t wanna waste money, than the app is NOT for you. The only thing you can do are the brain exercises-once a day and only 4 games. Other than that, EVERYTHING is locked. So really, I can’t see how it will ‘improve’ the brain by doing 4 excercises a day.

The HBlinker on 8/4/2018
It was the beat
Pay to use
Xx review master xX on 8/4/2018
You get minimal games unless you go pro. And if you want to use it free they shove pro in your face often.
Enjoy the challenge!
Gram Con on 8/3/2018
I enjoy some more than others but it’s fun!
AU55555 on 8/2/2018
The only thing you can do in the free version is take the assessment. If you are going to talk me into buying you need to at least let me play a few games.
Jake1837392 on 8/2/2018
It makes you pay for everything. There are no free options. Bad app. Uninstalled!
Could have been fun
Pikasmom1998 on 8/2/2018
It would have been a pleasant game if nonpaying customers were allowed to actually PLAY the game. Sadly, you have to pay a monthly subscription fee in order to make it past the initial “assessment” round, which lasts about five minutes. There is nothing free about this app. Sure, you can do the test round, but the gameplay ends there. Unlike most apps, which allow you to play their basic format, this one doesn’t allow anything unless you pay. Do not download it. It’s not worth the trouble.
Don’t waste your money
werttyujvsyuckbknono on 8/2/2018
Said the monthly thing was gonna bill me $2.99 but billed me $37.99.. and I would like my refund bck
Imfreed is stupid
Nick Mehrer on 8/1/2018
Honestly I haven’t even played this game yet but I saw in the reviews someone named Imfreed complain about the genders in this game and I just want you to know that you do not deserve to review this game if you are complaining about boys and girls being opposites. Girls and boys are biologically opposites. Stop trying to refuse basic anatomy.
Misleading but alright
AllTheNamesAreTakenByNow on 8/1/2018
The game is fun when you can play it but it just showed me a screen that said I can replay games from my daily workout for free and when I click on any of those games it says I have to pay for a subscription. I enjoyed this game but this irritates me.
Very Irritating and inaccurate
KNP0017 on 7/31/2018
Any game that requires swiping will give you inaccurate results because the quality of your phone will impact your “results.” You can know the correct information and because your finger is a millimeter off, you select the wrong thing. Some games are fun, but the irritating ones make me just want to delete this app permanently. Not worth the $5.99 for first year.
Brain health
jmmlam on 7/31/2018
It’s an ok app but you always play the same games over and over again unless you pay for a subscription. Gets very boring!
#nc12 on 7/30/2018
The game is great over all however the over time progression chart is difficult to read and understand. Also in the game “Tap Tap” It’s is difficult to not miss cards when the direction and objective changes because it is extremely difficult to reach the card when it instantly changes direction. Thanks for the game
9802 Momma on 7/30/2018
I’m in need of some memory challenges and while looking the the App Store I stumbled on this app. I was intrigued..... until I started reading the reviews. Yeah, I’m gonna pass - too many unhappy people having the same problem: Constantly because bombarded with come-ons to go pro AND THEN all the hassle with the charges. So, nope, Nope,NOPE.
I can literally feel the workout.
John Doe the bro! on 7/30/2018
Would recommend this to everyone. I can’t wait to get a lifetime pass 🙏🏽🙏🏽
Great app
Tiana552919 on 7/30/2018
I really enjoy this app and I love how there’s an option to play more games which elevate and lumosity do. I also really like the pretty design and the sounds. I do wish that I could figure out how to customize my daily workout on the free version to things I want to work on, like problem solving instead of the emotion games.
Great games but some of them needs to be retooled
Facebooker👤 on 7/29/2018
Most games are good but some needs fixing Tap Trap: after the first round it changes the shape but the screen already passed the shape you need to tap which marks your score down, , should start off with a fresh screen and the time should pause when they change the shape Jump Control: this game does whatever it wants , needs configuration. I take my phone out the case but it still jumps anytime and kills my score Word Path: Maybe I’m not smart enough but this game is nearly impossible to win I’ll leave it like that. Word A Like: some words just don’t make sense Word Pairs: it should be a faster way to let us know when we are correct or incorrect, should be like the other games with a big red X or a green check mark ✅ instead you have to wait for the lighting and thunder to pop up taking away valuable time. Some scores I wonder if anyone can reach it, 170130 in Babble bots is a crazy score and you must do it twice in a row to get the reward.little far fetched Just my opinion
Love It!
SavannahCassidy on 7/29/2018
I love this app I feel like it really does help me get motivated everyday I feel like I’m smart so that’s nice and the games aren’t that hard but there fun even without pro
Great Daily Training
Bryan02355 on 7/29/2018
I used Fit Brains faithfully everyday for years. I do believe it helped me stay sharp. When the app was retired I looked around for an alternative. Peak was it! I love it more than Fit Brains. There’s more games and I find them more challenging. I haven’t been using it long, but I’m really impressed. I purchase the lifetime subscription for $99 because I know I’ll use it everyday. Thanks for the great app.
RKANB on 7/29/2018
Me encanta
Very fun
Ragnarekt on 7/29/2018
I really enjoy doing this daily, it’s one of the first things I do for the day. You get ranked in each of seven categories that contribute to an overall score and can compare your score with friends, your age group, or specific professions. Love it. However, they really push you to buy the full version and make it blatantly obvious. I get so many memory and language exercises every week, but maybe only one or two coordination and problem solving exercises each per week, so the “workouts” are very poorly distributed in the free version.
Fun but minor issues
Tory💕 on 7/29/2018
This game is so much fun. However, there are some tweaks that could be changed. For example there should be more games for people who don’t get the “pro” because not everyone will want to upgrade and then they will delete it. Secondly, some of it seems a bit easy I know as you get further along it will keep advancing in difficulty but it would be nice if you offered a placement test at the start. Overall I like the concept and even though there are lots of apps like this this is a keeper! 😀
Great app but problem with game Word Alike
1964OFT on 7/29/2018
Developers need to check a thesaurus for Word Alike. I have an above average vocabulary. Whether asking for similar or opposite meaning of words, either there sometimes is NO correct choice or the words are so obscure they are easily missed. I have been using this app for about a year, purchased a full subscription and thoroughly enjoy it. I do wish there were a few more creative games offered in the Language Category.
bhuether on 7/29/2018
I really enjoy these fun game mind workouts. I start my day with them to get my mind going. It’s always a good feeling when you beat your old score. Never gets boring!
