I love this game and play every day but why did you switch the yes and no buttons? It’s extremely frustrating and makes me not want to play. With everything going on in the world right now, can we at least have something that stays the same!?!
switch the yes/no buttons back! 3/5
the two used to be on opposite sides and I am totally thrown off and frustrated. why would you switch this without an announcement? I love these games but this is really hindering my game play. Please switch it back.
Waste of brain power 1/5
They basically hold your hand and tell you step by step how to do the puzzles. I barely got through two rounds before I about threw my phone against the wall because there’s no way to turn off the irritating hand holding. If I needed help And instructions I’d go to the help menu. Find a better app.
Well ... 2/5
The new interface is annoying ... Partial Match for example ... you have to wait for this giant green check mark to move before you can see half of the shape to say if it’s partial or a match. It slows you down a lot :/
the animation for face switch is distraction now!!
When you play these games daily/have been for 80 something days straight and those lil things changes ... it’s very noticeable! Might as well relearn from the beginning.
The buttons all changed sizes/moved slightly for yes/no ... the aim is off for Speed Spotting.
I wish you gave us the option to erase all our scores and start from scratch or dial back to beginner or another lower level. Moving up to Master because you played x # of games vs moving up because you actually mastered a skill are different.
You are stuck in expert and constantly progressing but unable to “improve”. ... frustrating. Not inspiring anyone to keep going. I would rather be stuck in a level until I made some improvement.
Also ... connect ‘em up ... you can win each game and take minimal time to make a move and your overall score goes down? Trash!
Some games I enjoy even when I don’t do better than the last time I played and others seem like they were put there just to annoy you and say you fail.
At least for us with memberships there should be more options for resetting or backing up.
Used to be great.... 1/5
I been playing this game for over a year and it just went to a crazy number of adds you have to watch now unless you pay to upgrade. Deleting it now.
Awesome App. 5/5
Awesome app - been playing for almost a year now.
I just have one recommendation for the developers - on this latest update you changed the “Yes”, and “No” buttons on some of the games.
While, I don’t mind the button change - you put the “Yes”, on the left, and the “No” on the right - I’m not quite sure why you did this, and I just wanted to let you know, I find it very unintuitive as a user.
I’m failing things I previously did well at - feel like i need to retrain my brain just to play the same games - so confusing.
Just love it 5/5
Wether there is sol9d science behind these or not it sure is a fun way to start your day
needs better text contrast 2/5
i love the app, but cant use most of the games because of their choices on text colors- i can not read light green on white for example.
i have to use a hand lens because the text colors and tiny size.
pros should take into consideration that not every user has 20/20 vision!
put black text on light color background and white on dark background.
pretty simple- you are suppose to be smart lol! ; )
Fantastic game! 5/5
This is so great! It is interesting, easy to understand how to play. Things starts easy, and guides you through more and more chalanging. It contains of many different games. Each is differet, original, smart and they all make you use your brain. And it never feels boring.
The best game I played on phone for years.
Great job making all this! I really enjoy it.
Confusing scoring 4/5
I really enjoyed the games. But frequent I’ll lose a day of the consecutive days score for no apparent rest.
Not a “free game”! 1/5
I love the brain skills offered by this game. However, the “free” version is unreasonably loaded with long, frustrating adverts. Most free games interrupt us occasionally with a short (<10 seconds) advert. This game slides in 30 second adverts between every step of the brain workout. I buy many apps, but this one is too expensive monthly/annually at $3 per month. No thanks. Which is a shame, since I really like the exercises. But can’t stand the long adverts and interruptions!!
Don’t waste your time 1/5
It’s just wants you to buy add ons . Makes up “games” that don’t make sense, the game doesn’t even fallow it’s own pattern explanation
Ad spam 1/5
Can’t believe you guys add ad after every round. It’s unbearable and uninstalled.
Can you please make a landscape mode for iPads?
Also, dark mode would be nice for those of us who like to use this app in an evening or night time.
Good Learning Tool 4/5
By the person wrote this
so much fun and great tool to get your mind going
Well worth it 5/5
I hesitated in getting the full access. I bit the bullet and so glad I did!
Amazing way to improve all areas of the brain 5/5
It really helps you develop and build your memory skills, reaction time, and all that other great stuff. I would really recommend Peak if you want something to challenge your brain.
Used to be fun 2/5
By Ashley M. S.
This game used to be fun. You got 4 games ad-free and then could watch ads for extra tries. Now I have to watch an ad in between each one of my “free games”? No thanks, not worth it.
Good so far make sure you look at instructions
A keeper 4/5
This is a good app to keep your head in tune.
I had trouble with so many things like my speech and etc.. but peak helped me with all of those things they train you when ever your comfortable with and you can also create a schedule when you want to do the app at what time and what days. thank you peak!
Long adds 2/5
The adds are longer than any other app I use. It’s inconvenient when I’m trying to get a “quick brain workout”, as you market. I love the games, but the adds are unbearable.
4+ must a joke 1/5
I can’t believe these ratings. How are you guys giving this app a five? Are they bought?
Unless you’re willing to pay massive amounts of money, this app is useless. Terrible app with intrusive ads constantly haggling you. And I noticed the unbelievably snaky move they pulled, they ask you what you want to focus on, which, why do you need my email and phone number (data mining much?); but free accounts will be locked out of the games they said they wanted to play unless they pay. What a coincidence. ... I didn’t want to play focus games and wanted language games. All my games are Focus based and not language based. Lol. Uninstall. You’re not getting my money.
I get you need to pay for this app, but it’s the same games over & over, so what’s the point? The ads upon ads have only increased, so this feels like a spamobile now. And when they can’t force you to watch ads because of signal, then you can’t even play the games anyway. I finally just deleted this thing because it it’s pretty worthless. If you want to enrich your brain, go read a book or take a class. If you want to get inundated with spam, then download this app.
Great game 5/5
Challenges your focus to improve
Once you hit a certain level, it’s boring 2/5
By Not really math
Games only change when you move up a level. However, the scoring doesn’t work once you reach a certain score. I completed a “workout” that consisted of 3 games. I got my highest score ever in 2 of them (both in the same category) and my overall score dropped 2 points in that category. This happens every time I get a slight rise in my score. I have to figure it’s because they don’t have a higher level” and this no way for me to progress, so they artificially drop me down, but there’s no way to reach out to customer service to check. My subscription expires this month and I won’t renew unless it’s fixed or I get a response
Fun way to waste time 4/5
I’m enjoying it, although I don’t take the scoring too seriously. The only issue I have is that two of the “emotional IQ” games are 100% based on coordination - finding the positive words is easy; timing the elephant jumps takes skill. Finding the top/bottom smiles is easy; dragging the smile around cogs to match them takes skill. They’d both be better placed under coordination (which is my lowest category, lol). Make new games for emotion!
it used to be fun... 3/5
...but, now it’s a waiting game. the ads are way too long & have become an interference. Elevate’s the way to go.
By Flash gal
Help and fun at the same time
Can only play a few a day 3/5
I enjoy the games and typically would enjoy playing for a bit longer. If you’re not looking to pay, however, you’re SOL. Only one round of games per day.
I must be an idiot 1/5
The instructions for some of the brain tasks fly by so fast I can’t read or understand them. And I was a college professor for 36 years! It just made me feel dumb.
Not good 1/5
Unless you’re willing to pay money this app is no good to you. You can only play 4 games and you can’t even play them after 1 try if you don’t pay.
I was unable to properly evaluate the game,
because after playing once you are forced to upgrade to pro. Looks like there is potential, but $35 a year seemed excessive.
Decoder a mess 1/5
Ordinarily, I like this game. But the Decoder part is malfunctioning. Please fix it!
3 stars 3/5
Well... the game is very enjoyable, and I really love it but you can only play 5 things per day, and then your done. It doesn’t let you play more than 5 exercises unless you are gonna pay a monthly subscription.
If you are willing to pay it’s a really fun game but if you are like me then I would not recommend this game....
Good, but the premium ads are annoying 3/5
By Chocolate chip word cookie
I haven’t used this app much, but it seems super cool. My main issue with it is the constant ads telling me to “go premium”. It’s super annoying because I feel like if I got premium I’d be wasting money, but without it I’m not getting the full experience. Otherwise, it’s great. The games are fun and they do seem to work, at least for me. I would recommend you download it, just be warned about the constant premium.
So Restricted 3/5
Don’t get me wrong, I love this app. I like the games. Many of them are challenging and fast paced, which is something I enjoy. It is helping me immensely in being able to focus under pressure. Unfortunately, as fun as it was to begin with, the limitations are ridiculous. Only one session per day is frustrating. If I’m in a timed game and I have a distraction or other important matter to pay attention to, the progress I make on that game is gone. There are no redos and no extra practices for any of the games unless you upgrade to Pro. I wish there would have been a few games left available to play at any time for everyone and the rest be available to unlock by upgrading. I feel like the developers could have made this app much more appealing just by opening it up a little more to the average user. Complaints similar to mine seem common amongst these reviews. I hope that some changes come soon.
Love it all, except 4/5
The games are wonderful and I would give it five stars were it not for this one annoying thing: The word “Zen” is not an accepted word in your game called “Word Fresh Zen.” My brain hurts.
By anna_L sad yeehaw
It won’t let me even sign up, it says there’s an error. I tried all the sign in options
Error from the get go 1/5
By ZXCVBNM NO OPTION
The app keeps giving me an error message saying it can’t register me via email.
Great games, too many ads 3/5
By Simone's Mama
I really enjoy all of the games. They are challenging and get harder as you play more. I used to have the app on my phone, but couldn’t remember why I deleted it. Now, I remember- too many ads. There is an ad before you start the new game and an ad after the game. You spend an exponential amount of time watching ads than playing the games. My brain dies of boredom before the affects of training can actually have an effect. Sad, but deleting, again.
I have been very disappointed with Peak since ads seem to be the apps objective. You use to at least get through the questions before ads appeared. Now you get an ad between questions. Its very hard to stay motivated and how can you get an actual reading when you have to wait now between questions. I understand you need the ads but between questions?
By Makenna Andersen
I paid $35 to play pro and it never even upgraded and I can’t even play what i want
Great fun keeping me on my toes
Technical issues 2/5
Diverse and challenging 5/5
I love this app!! It is constantly challenging me with different and difficult games. Worth the money great job finding new ways of opening our minds.
Great if you pay, if not ADS ARE TOO MUCH TO HANDLE 3/5
By Mr. Phly guy jones
I loved this app so much but recently they updated it to where they have those annoying 30sec ads and that is the most annoying thing. I have deleted the app since because it was slowing my day down way to much waiting 30-45 secs between each activity. There for again, if you plan on buying it get it. If not look at the app elevate and luminosity free versions.
Glitches Galore! 2/5
I have played this game for 5 days. It isn’t that bad except, there are so many glitches. I played one game called “Face Switch” I got all of the answers correct (they all asked if the man was wearing glasses and it was always the same picture) however, the app says I got 57% correct. The app also glitches on other games but that one, I noticed, was the most annoying. Peak is a very good idea and I enjoy to use the app whenever it is not glitching. It would be much more enjoyable and helpful if there were not odd glitches in the middle of a game. If fixed, I would definitely tell my friends and family about the app. I wouldn’t recommend this if they would rage over the game glitching and giving incorrect data about a specific skill set.
