  • Cool, but not free

    By Darksun647
    I understand the need to monetize your app but if I subscribed to every app I’d like to use I’d be broke. This app severely restricts you unless you sign up for their subscription service... it’s infuriating. Since at least 60-90% of the content is behind a paywall I can’t rate it. What’s there is serviceable, good to pass a little time to feel better about yourself if it doesn’t present much of a challenge.
  • Would’ve Been Good Prep for the ACT

    By MikeWhoHasABike
    I wish this was around back when I took the ACT. I feel like this app strengthens the skills needed for standardized testing better than any prep class.
  • Cognitive Assistance

    By aguabug
    I am a college graduate and was held an information technology career for over 35 years. After retiring, I had a bilateral thalamic stroke (05/2018) and my cognitive abilities were severely diminished. A year and a half later, I feel this app is really helping me improve my cognitive abilities. Though some days are better than others, it’s a great tool.
  • Nice app

    By heynay
    I enjoy this practice. I keep the free version.. you definitely have to maintain daily rountine I think to see benefits but I find the exercises challenging enough and interesting.
  • Best - Teaches real world skills

    By AshleyZM
    Instead of trying to increase skills like most games do, this one actually directly improves academic skills. For example, I didn’t realize that my use of commas isn’t horrible, but isn’t at the level I thought it was, which is embarrassing for the psychological educational psych reports I write. So, I’m practicing clicking where a comma should be inserted or removed (separate lessons). I’m also increasing my vocabulary by choosing synonyms. These are personal weaknesses of mine. There are a huge number of games targeting all kinds of academics. I’m really thrilled with this app. I’ve emailed the developers some recommendations and they reply quickly. Ha, I just used a brevity skill. I do constantly download competing apps, but definitely prefer this one. Gives a good amount of free games that you can use without being forced to do a trial first like some other ones I’ve downloaded (then risk begin charges if I forget to cancel). They do have a trial. All of the brain games are expensive, and I paid for Luminosity years ago. Which was good, but taught cognitive skills that don’t always generalize to real life use. Subscriptions for me are rare, but I bought this one. Definitely worth trying. Especially if you have kids with learning disabilities or who impulsively answer questions.
  • Punished for doing well

    By JoyfulAdventure
    I loved Elevate so much, really enjoying the training daily. However, one is punished for doing well. As soon as to get to the biggest level in a game, you are rewarded by a measly 3 points for a high score, and you LOSE 11+ points for a ‘good’ rating. What the heck? I don’t even want to play anymore, there is no incentive at all to do well.
  • Good stuff

    By jfhocs
    I’ve been trying to decrease the amount of time that I spend on social media and have used this app as a replacement behavior. I moved my social media app to my last page and moved this one front and center. The games are fun and interesting. The only suggestion I would make is to not make every game expire with a timer but rather have a set number of questions to be completed and decrease the score further based on duration. This would allow the player to get maximum practice during that session but need for growth would still be documented based on incorrect answers and duration. The timer acts as a distraction at times and when completing lessons on things like brevity and language. I’m not sure it is necessary as one is rarely asked to do such activities for time. I see it’s use related to activities like mental math. Overall, great app keep up the good work.

    After you “set it up” it tells you they are going to charge you $35 in 14days unless you cancel it. To me, that’s not a FREE APP WITH IN APP PURCHASE OPTIONS- it’s an app you have to pay for- they just wait 14days to charge you. Sick of this type of scam- hoping you forget to cancel or can’t figure out how.
