Good content, terrible app 1/5
Sluggish, takes forever to load and to recognize a new day ... Hasn't improved at all.
You shouldn’t have a pro version! 2/5
This game is fun and it’s really elegant design makes me like it, but the fact that you can only play 3 games a day unless you go pro is not fun. This game helps people and you shouldn’t have to pay for a game app. You could add specific features like statistics that are pro but the games shouldn’t be.
Beautiful app with very sophisticated learning algorithms 5/5
This app is so beautiful!!! I love the animations, the gamification and all the metrics you can track. It’s so well thought out. It’s the best app I have ever used.... seriously. I’m actually learning and getting better at editing. It’s a great mental workout for my bus ride to work. It has only been a little over a week and I’m already seeing improvements in my reading and editing abilities. I’m still on the trial but definitely going to sign up for the membership. It helps me so much with my design work. It’s a great way to work on my listening skills and memory.
I have tried other apps like this in the past but never before have I come across one that was so sophisticated and with skills I can instantly apply to my life.
I’m an app designer myself and wanted to give a shout out to the design team that this a freakin work of art! Keep up the good work!!! The team behind this app is crushing it! Every day you inspire me!
Love this game and the manner in which it challenges/exercises my brain. It’s my “neuro-aerobics.”
Fun and 5/5
Love the challenge
Practical Brain Training 5/5
Brain training that helps improve skills that most people use on a daily basis!
Fun & Innovative 5/5
I love to play & watch my progress! It’s quite satisfying
I love the challenge offered every day. As a retired educator, I understand the importance of “exercising” the brain. The combinations offered daily make me use more than just one area of my brain. Excellent product!
Elevate really helps me when I don’t understand things and it helps create a general perspective to the mind
Very good 5/5
I am enjoying ever bit of it
The App 4/5
I got it back, I had to do a couple of things. I think my phone was actually messing it up. Thank you for the response.
This game changed. Use to be switch a game if you wanted to. Use to be able to play game 2 extra times. It doesn’t give your stats anymore. That’s messed up. I’ll probably lose interest in this game, since it’s changed so drastically.
Great for the brain 5/5

Really well Done. 5/5
By Drew joiner
I really enjoy this type of training. It covers part of learning that’s important to me. For example, the brevity in writing. Also, the fractions and measuring sections really are very well done. The state two seasons are helping me stay Sharon mentally.
I enjoy this game.
Good, but not great 3/5
By storymill reviewer
I’m a fan of this app, and I just subscribed for the second year. I wasn’t planning on it, though, because as I progressed through the levels, I found the scoring system significantly lacking. What really annoys me about it is that as you progress, there’s no recognition for the increased difficulty. Meaning, I can get my high score in a game the first time I play it because it’s so easy, but it’s scored the EXACT SAME WAY when the stakes are raised! The difficulty setting is way way higher, so it’s virtually impossible to achieve a high score in any game beyond the beginning stages of playing it. You’re forever getting your 5th or 6th highest score, or worse, because the game is that much more difficult now. It ends up taking all the fun out playing, and is why I took like an 8 month break.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the games and do find them challenging, but it’s incredibly frustrating to get a high score when the difficulty setting is at Beginner and NEVER be able to touch it again! If they fix that, this app would be amazing!
Fun and Challenging 5/5
Great app to challenge you and enhance your skills!
it's fun, wish they had more demos🤗
As I get older I’ve noticed my mind isn’t as sharp as it used to be. To prevent dementia one needs to keep the mind stimulated. This game definitely does this.
Brain games 5/5
This app is similar to Luminosity which I also love but this one is MORE educational, I guess that could be a word to describe it. It’s better for everyday use versus luminosity is mostly just games. Nothing you can really use everyday. But either way both still fun. And it’s a quick get away from other stuff you have going on. I enjoy learning new things everyday. And I’m try to get my math game up. I’m not bad at math just slow at it lol so I still use my fingers to count. But I’ve gotten better for sure so that’s a plus. I love this app and have been recommending it to my friends.
To costly 1/5
Plain and simple to costly.
I have the free version and have unlocked the study. But I only get 3 exercises per day. So I don’t get where you say “26” of the 42. That is misleading. The study only has a reading review of a few of the exercises. I’m saying the Pro version is to costly.
I like this app, but........ 4/5
By PDX Spartan
So there is a lot of really cool and fun games and training material with this app. It’s been great so far. The only reason I don’t rate it a 5 star is that it keeps asking me to link to my Facebook account. This is really annoying.
Amazing learning app 5/5
By Michael T D
I have done some of the others Elevate is the best I have found.
Cannot reset password 2/5
I am trying to reset my password and i am not getting email on email address. I have tried for atleast 10 times.
I am enjoying the challenges presented in language arts and math.
Release Pro Level 3/5
I find the first three levels of exercises to be stimulating and fun, but I am unwilling to pay a monthly fee to play the higher “pro” levels. I might be interested in paying a one time fee depending on how much it was. Anyway, 3 stars for the 3 levels.
Challenging but effective 3/5
These games are very challenging and fast-passed. I find them harder than those on Lumosity, which are more like video games in their look-and-feel. I think the Elevate games are improving my abilities.
Writing to say thank you 5/5
Still think this is a great app, but is possible to add a phonics game of some sort. I know a lot of adult struggle with reading and spelling and think this would really help.
There are many Brain games out there, but this one by far is the most superior to me. Not only does it have games to help increase your skills, but they have interesting subjects to learn about. I often find myself paying more attention because the article during the game was so good. Plus they give tips for you to become better at the game. Thanks to the people at elevate I’m way better at calculating percentages. Still haven’t got the subtraction tip.....but maybe it click one day.
Thanks again to all the people who work on the app. I appreciate your dedication.
Very well designed 5/5
Fantastic app, I do highly recommend it, They have a winner
Top Brian Training App 5/5
This app is great if you’re competitive with friends! I started using this app over a week ago and it’s fun for my boyfriend and I to play during down time. We enjoy the “free” version as it still has a lot to offer. I love this app more than other brian training games as it has a better interface and easy to understand games. I will definitely be looking at investing in the pro version in the future!
Go pro, go broke. 3/5
Like the app, but it is just a game. The whole thing about changing your life and all is way overblown. It’s a game. A good game actually, but monthly or yearly fees like it’s a medical necessity is ridiculous. Without going Pro you don’t get too much, but Pro is ridiculously priced.
Add Persian 5/5
Thank you so much. If you add Persian (Farsi) to app it’d be great.

Practically Amazing! 5/5
By C.Q 510
I have not used many apps or programs similar to this that “train your brain”, and am fairly new to this application. But dang, (am not going to curse), this application so far is incredible! It is so practical and useful to daily life, honestly this type of format should be used in the public school systems. It is engaging, looks beautiful and clean, and has great motivating features such as the slot-machine sounds(which if you have been to vegas feel pretty rewarding lol). Overall this has to be one of the best applications i have used to date, which makes the yearly payment absolutely worth it if you find developing your mind in practical way useful. 9.9/10 so far. (Hope this application continues to grow and develop, and reaches a greater scale than where it is currently at.)
Also for you guys that have read all the way till the end, wait for the “cheaper algorithm” to kick in. (Not sure what needs to be done, but diminishing use, sucking more, skipped lessons, non-finished days as time goes on, but continual use without upgrading may be the key)
Get Learning! Yay.
A noticeable improvement. 5/5
This app, if used regularly, will cause you to have a noticeable improvement in your cognitive speed, vocabulary, social skills, etc. I soon chose to buy the lifetime membership, and frankly, with the amount of updates and quality of content I continue to get after using this for over two years, I would like to pay more. That's how awesome this is. Download it, set the notifications, and make it a habit. You'll notice the change and see the impact on your life and productivity.
While I like the app, I would rather pay a set fee for a license even if is for a year. I despise apps and memberships that automatically renew.
I am 58 and looking to keep my active brain exercised...very good app
Love these games. Just after a week I find that I am thinking quicker. My mind seems to be right on top of most of the games.
Great app 5/5
Love it 5/5
This app is amazing. I love how more privileges are given to you as you continue to stay with the app. It’s a lot of fun to me and it’s very helpful in helping me in my weak areas and memorization and math. I highly recommend for someone looking to better their skills!
Loved at first, becoming repetitive 4/5
By Dimitri G.
Fantastic design, fun and interesting games with real life application and benefits but after a year the content has gotten incredibly repetitive. Maybe it’s because I’ve gotten to 98% on all subjects but the material needs updating, especially in the listening and reading categories.
Used to look forward to my morning sessions but now it’s become kinda tedious.
Best free brain/mind app 5/5
You can replay games that are part of your daily workout, which other apps don’t let you do. You can also view your progress for free.
So helpful 5/5
This game challenges me to think of things I’ve forgotten or haven’t thought about in years!
Exactly what I needed 5/5
I’m 32, finally going back to school and this is just perfect! I love the focus games particularly. It definitely helps get the brain going!
Brain Workout! 5/5
This app challenges my intelligence. If you desire to lift mental weights with your brain, this app will give you nice mental workout!
Mini games are awesome when on the go.
A game that actually matters 5/5
Do you really get much out of matching colors or finding patterns? This game actually helps improve other parts of you daily life.
All games 5/5
Challenging on multiple levels
Larger font please 4/5
I am enjoying this app. It really gets my brain thinking. My only issue is that the fonts in some of the activities are just too small for me to see on my iPhone 6. That creates a level of frustration that takes away from the game. And yes, I am wearing my reading glasses. Please create a version that is readable by older folks!
Very Smooth Learning 5/5
By Eddie WannaBee
Hard to accept the weaker areas, but overall Elevate is a very pleasing/challenging app. Seriously considering going Pro.
