Annoying that you have to pay to use 90% of the app
Bad game 1/5
If I could give 0 stars I would you can literally only do the most basic things that could only be challenging to kindergartners then you have to pay a ton of money for the pro version to do anything else. Bad game
Love the game, but don’t want to pay! 3/5
This game is actually really good! But, you have to get “pro” in order to play all the games (you have to pay for pro). I know the app creators need to make money, but this is not the best to use it. You can only play about 5 games per day, and can only play them once. If want to do more than that, than you have to purchase pro. I mean, seriously? Please consider trying to make money other ways!
Game asks for too much personal information 1/5
I uninstalled the game after discovering that you can’t even start playing the game until after you provide full name and full date of birth. It’s the only game I have ever seen that requires so much personal data. That’s completely unnecessary. When you change that, I might give it a try.
Honestly there are are million puzzle games out there for free. Not gonna drop $50 on a YEAR subscription to get something you can get for free somewhere else. Puzzles are not unique and are available other places. Don’t buy honestly you will regret it
App freezes up. 2/5
Some of the ads make the app freeze up & the only way to get it to open again is to completely turn off my iPad. A real pain since I have to watch an ad after every game.
Prepared to be annoyed 2/5
By My Review Is
This is a fun enough app. I enjoy the various games BUTin order to play more you have to pay or watch ads. I'm fine with watching ads for occasional extra game plays. HOWEVER, about 90% of the time after you watch an ad, the screen goes dark and you DO NOT GET THE EXTRA PLAY YOU EARNED. This is SO FRUSTRATING! FIX THIS!
They introduced tons of ads so the free version is no longer worth playing. Still not willing to pay to play.
Good app 4/5
My only complaint is that certain games seem to either accelerate too fast or are too slow. This could just be a personal issue, but the Tap Trap goes from to 3000 in 2 seconds and it’s hard to work on my score when the cards go by faster than I can comprehend. On the other end the game with the blimps where you guess the words? I couldn’t get those things to move faster if I tried, it also makes it hard to improve my score because it never gets over a certain point since the blimps all move at a really slow pace
Acts like a free app but you can’t do ANYTHING except the “test”. This isn’t clear until after you download- a dirty trick.
I love peak! 5/5
It definitely gives my brain a workout. As a mom of 6 kids. It’s the best thing to help me stay sane ha!
Love it 5/5
Love this app. Dedicated to using it daily and tracking progress.
Really wanted to like this game 2/5
Tried this game after seeing a pop up ad. The other two games I play, lumosity and elevate, are both a great deal of fun and interesting. Of the three, elevate is the best. That is strictly my opinion. There is no evidence to support that claim.
When I got this, I really, truly, genuinely wanted to like it. The problem is many of the graphics and controls are extremely clumsy. At least they are for me. I do not have the paid account, so I have not seen all of the games.
Elevate is, in some ways, much, much more difficult which can make it kind of frustrating. That said, the challenge also makes it more interesting. The other aspect of those games is they aren't entirely video type games. This app is, or at least appears to be, 100% tap to respond or in a few cases, slide to control. In addition, both of the other apps have several games where it stops when you make a mistake and gives a detailed explanation. That's not always the case, but is the case for some of the grammar and language games.
The other aspect of this game that can be frustrating is when you make an error. The screen shows the blip of a red X, followed by the next problem instantly. As a result, you're unable to determine what you did wrong.
I'm not bashing the app/games, just saying there are better options. Again, my opinion.
One other comment I saw and agree with is the rankings. Your after game summary will say, for example, you are at 23rd percentile. This means the overwhelming majority of other players are better than you. There are other games where it says I'm in the very top group. For some of the games these rankings just seem difficult to believe.
As an example, one of the games has you making words from a pair or trio of letters which start the word. I will get as many as 25 words for a couple of the prefixes, some of the words are fairly long. This requires typing as fast as my fingers will move. The summary will pop up and show that I am in the 40th percentile, meaning the vast majority of people participating are doing better.
I cannot really recommend this app and definitely cannot see upgrading to the paid version. Try elevate, especially for the language and grammar.
Super enjoyable and valuable! Even if you don’t upgrade! 5/5
I cannot say enough good things about this app! I used it for several months before upgrading to Pro and I enjoyed it and never felt like I was missing out on anything! Of course there were ads, but that’s to be expected with any game app. I never am the type of person to spend money on phone games but they had an amazing sale for Pro and I had noticed significant improvements in my focus, patience, attention to detail, and my mood from playing this every day so I decided to go for it. I love all of the games. I look forward to doing my daily “brain workout” every day! Even if you don’t pay for the upgrade, it’s still a really really great game app.
Replying for watching videos ?? 1/5
On my other phone I could reply the game if I watched an add? What happened to that?
Fun and Informative 4/5
It’s a great game. Makes us use our brain cells unlike other games.
Need another game for coordination. There are just two. If you can add other games for categories that would be great!
Brain bang 5/5
Gets the juices flowing! Simply amazing upgrade for sure!
Good but annoying with the pro membership 2/5
I knew it was going to have some in app purchases. But right after the initial test, you literally get zero workouts. Like everything you have to go pro to do it.
It’s really not expensive, but I didn’t even get to see if I would want it first.
However looks good.
By my name is gerald
I did not look at the download right away. Did I just pay for a learning game?
Definitely working 4/5
Been using peak (pro on and off) since summer 2017 and I definitely feel it working. Getting quicker at completing little day to day tasks and am steadily raising my scores, now at over 900 in everything but problem solving. One complaint— the word path game breaks down 25% of the time, like it’ll tell me the words aren’t valid or it won’t let me place the final tile where I need it. And it’s been like this since 2017 so I’m wondering how often the developers are quality checking the games.
Games are good 2/5
The games are great but when we watch the golf game to get extra play time it always leaves black screen. I don’t get to play extra. Other ads work fine. I think problem is with the golf one. Otherwise everything is else is fine.
It’s ok👌 3/5
By Jack the learner
This app helps me learn but it payed me $20 per year without telling me!!!! I rate it three because it’s a good fun app to learn but it needs to tell us what time we have to pay. You can try it but I am telling you it cost $20 per year
Good but ugh 3/5
Yes it’s a good app, but you can only do like one game for each section, and some don’t even let you play any without the Peak Plus. I’m not going to spend money on this game if I don’t even know how those other games are! It is good, yes, but I don’t think it’s worth spending money on 😕
Will not load 1/5
By xnot happy
The app will not load.
Couldn’t even use it! 1/5
This app won’t sign me up! I put in my email to get signed up, then I do my password. It keeps saying “log in error” and I KNOW both my password AND my email are correct, so somethings wrong with the app it’s wack. Someone help me fix this please I was really looking forward to using it.
I love this app 5/5
The games are so diverse. Oh my gosh, there are so many to choose from! Some of there are very easy and some are not. The increase in difficulty is on point. I especially enjoy the games specifically built for relaxation. This one app has so much to offer for entertainment and you’re showing your some major love at the same time.
Fun yet irritating 3/5
By Morgan Rose Superfan
There are times when you spell out a proper word in one of the word games and it doesn’t give you credit as it doesn’t recognize common words.
peak review 1/5
the games are fun after 16 days of playing free i was hoing to buy the pro version but it misses days i play and wont allow more than 8 days at a time. it counts fine up to 8 then it skips a days workout and starts the count over so now im thinking i will look elsewhere
Less than Crap 1/5
By feliz hippie
A app that the first issue is its server not allowing user to create an account is CRAP.
Won’t open 1/5
Tried to set up new account with email and keep receiving an operational error when adding a password. I don’t want to setup thru FB
Won’t let you make an account with email 2/5
I think the game is a good concept, however when trying to make an account either using Facebook or an email it won’t let you use an email to make a free account, forcing you to use your Facebook account
Won’t let me sign up! 1/5
Every time I go to create an account, it shows me an error message. I’ve turned my phone off and on, and deleted the app and re-downloaded it, but still no luck.
Sign up error 3/5
I couldn’t even sign up, it was saying there was an error when I tried entering my email and password. I just wanna be able to sign uo
I am NoT opening an account to play this game 1/5

Help healing 4/5
I had a stroke over a year and a half ago. I was one of the luckier ones as I recovered slowly but surely. One of the things my therapists did with me was play brain games to help my cognitive recovery. I did it faithfully almost daily and one of the things I discovered was Peak. I like the variety and the little goals I can go after in each game. Over 4 stars!
Added to fitness routine! 5/5
This is fun and entertaining! Some games I actually learn to like....something about improving skills, I suppose. Kinda pricey,but I liked the Mother's Day special! I
Cant afford to pay for thePro upgrade anymore -and won’t tolerate all the ads. Not nice to be pushed to spending and I will miss it! Seems one should be able to enjoy the simple games.😡😩
Games are fun, but difficult to determine if worth paying for pro 2/5
The games are certainly very fun and interesting, but you only get to play a set of 3 games once per day, unless you pay for the pro version (which is a monthly payment). No redos or anything. That would be fine normally, but they then give you a summary of your overall performance which I feel isn’t accurate if you missed something on the instructions or if someone interrupts you while playing and something goes wrong. Also the instructions for the games can be complicated and/or slow going. There were some games with instructions that were too long or went through too slow for me so I skimmed them, but then messed up on an aspect of the game so my overall performance summary shot down on certain skills. The summary is actually very cool, but it kind of threw me off with how skewed my results became when I messed up on one game. I was actually considering paying for the game, but by not allowing me to replay the games for the day and having complicated/long game instructions makes it hard for me to determine its worth so I ultimately decided to just delete it. I was hoping this app would be fun while simultaneously training my brain, but it feels more like a daily pop quiz from high school with daily report cards based only on the pop quiz performance. I’m not interested in doing high school over again.
Smart game 4/5
By F2D Rock
Peak is great for training your different brain power like memory, problem solving, and all that. it also keeps track of how much you trained it’s a great game, fun also. So if you need to train your brain muscles go ahead and download it!
Es genial 5/5
Me encanta espero que cada actualización sea mejor y mejor,no como otras q van para abajo, esta app es adictiva y ágil no puedo dejar de jugarla
Bad quality control - can’t win 1/5
Eventually you get to a point it is impossible to win. For example on Pixel Logic to get to level 6 you need a score of 47,000, but the max score possible is 8500x4=34,000.
It’s Okay 2/5
By Nicole, Jasmine Thompson
This app would be a lot better if you didn’t have to pay for EVERYTHING. You play one round of games and then you can’t play anything else unless you pay? Not all of us have the money for stuff like this. But we want to use this app. It’s not really fair. They should at least extend the free version
Fun, but some problems. 4/5
I like playing this game a lot, but only being able to play once a day annoys me. This isn’t a bad game, but I’m not going to pay for a subscription just because I want to play more than once a day because like many people I need to buy other stuff and can’t waste my money for this. This is a good game though and I would recommend it.
Just a Game 1/5
By gucci goblin
There is no reason what so ever to pay a monthly fee to play games that you could find on similar apps for free
game ad (4x) ad game ad (2x) ad game (repeat as needed) 2/5
A few months ago i would’ve been singing praises in a review and say that even if you don’t pay, this is a fantastic app, but since then they’ve cut and cut and added double the ads.
Before you had 4 games in your daily workout that you could play without watching any ads (or six if you watched one ad) and occasionally you would get the opportunity to play a pro (paid) games in those 4/6. Then after your workout you could play any of the free games for one ad each. For a while there was a glitch that if you did your workout early in the day and then came back to peak a couple hours later, the pro games would be unlocked as well which was great for me but not nearly as great for peak so i totally understand why they fixed that. When they fixed that, they also made it so if a pro game was your 6th workout game, you couldn't watch an ad to play it. After that, they took pro games out of the daily workouts completely. (But your old scores for the pro games still count toward your peak score, which is a problem since you rarely got to play them so your score is likely much lower than other games of the same category.) Now they’ve added ads between every workout game and in order to access your additional two workout games you need to watch an ad before and after, even though you could play the same two games for only one if you choose them individually.
If you’re just joining peak now, it might be okay since you don’t know The Old Peak™️ but even if i look at it through the lens of knowing i have that bias, this app is still overwhelming ad heavy.
Not worth it 1/5
It isn’t worth it because it lets you go once for free and then you have to pay $890 a year. Don’t fall for it, it is just trying to take your money. It is a scam do NOT bother
Peak review 1/5
I thought I was paying a few extra dollars to unlock new levels, but instead, I had purchased a renewing yearly subscription for 34.99. I am still trying to get a refund, so buyer beware! The app description was misleading.
Great App! 5/5
I love this app. Especially since I have been trying to avoid other social media applications which don’t stimulate me. This is an amazing way to feel engaged and keep yourself progressing with your mental and emotional agility. I recommend it to all my friend. I have definitely seen an improvement in my engagement throughout the day.
Ruining my brain? 1/5
Quick disclaimer, I’ve only been using this app regularly for about a week. And my peak score keeps dropping and dropping. Why would I pay for something that seems to be doing the opposite of what it claims?
And just for fun,
My least favorite game is officially tunnel trance.
My current favorite would be street nav if it was harder.
Don’t get Peak 5/5
By Sniffer than sniff
DON’T GET PEAK!!!
This game will make you very self-conscious. You will regret getting this app. Just save yourself and don’t get this app.
