To many ads 1/5
I understand free apps have ads in them. This app has a ton. I actually deleted the app. You spend more time watching ads then playing the games
Added ads after each game 1/5
By Mr. JimmyJohnsin=Amazing😆
They used to have it where there were no ads and it was very fluid and enjoyable to use. A few days ago they sent a survey for me to fill out and right after filling it, they decided to have ads after each game you play destroying your focus and motivation to play.
I love this app! But I am having a little bit of a hard time understanding exactly where I am at or where I should be scoring for my age and compared to others my age (if I’m doing well or not). When it shows the percentages for a game, it varies so much and I can’t tell if it’s just based on the game in general, if how many times you play it goes into account or if it’s because the difficulty changes the more you play?
For example: It will say I’m scoring higher that 95% of others, then say I’m only higher than 36% on the same game when I replay it and my score didn’t change much, so I wonder what the factors are that change it so drastically. I guess I just kind of want to know the lowest and highest that can be scored? Also, how you get the numbers for the summary showing all the categories on the chart?
Fix some bugs! 3/5
At first I liked this game but there are some definite kinks. For example in Decoder...I see the number and touch the screen but it doesn’t register if you don’t touch it in just the right place so BLAM! You don’t get your point. And in GROW I am fairly erudite—many words that I know are evidently not in the limited vocabulary of your developers but are certainly in the dictionary. I could go on. Just fix the bugs. No way am I paying for this.
For people who don’t like the app because of ads. 5/5
By Pixel 1234
I have been using the app for almost a year now. The app is great! If you don’t want to pay a full price for the app keep using the app and they will send you deals where the subscription gets way cheaper(sometimes 50% off too). I have so far paid for subscription based games only once and it’s this app. Think about all the $5-$10 you waste randomly and invest that in your mental hygiene. App does get more than >100K reviews based on nothing. Once you are a pro member you will love it.
Annoying Start 3/5
Upon starting with brain training apps I decided to evaluate some in their free versions. My top three picks were Peak, Elevate, and Lumosity. At first all three seemed intriguing, however, Peak started hitting me with ads after not doing so in the beginning. Since I’m still evaluating them (it’s early on), Peak is getting washed out due to the annoying ads. The other two aren’t doing that so I will be going with one of them.
Terrible instructions on some of these games 2/5
Too many of these games have really inadequate instructions. I got really frustrated and had to google some of them. I thought that was ridiculous, given how clear it became after googling. Why didn’t it just say so in the first place? Honestly I don’t think my brain is improving either. My scores go up and down.
Recent upgrade? 3/5
There was a recent upgrade and now right after I play a game I don’t get the screen which lets you see your progress in meeting goals. I find it very frustrating since I have to exit the workout and then go back in and choose a game I already played to see if I made progress toward a goal or not. Please let that screen pop up after completing a game.
Memory game partial match is broken 4/5
How are people supposed to know which arbitrary rotations of differing arbitrary shapes are “the same” (so the answer is “partly”) or “different” (so the answer is “no”)?
There are a lot of bugs 4/5
The only reason why I’m rating this is to hopefully get the developers’ attention. The app keeps freezing after playing games and I have to exit it and go back in. Please try to fix this
Muy entretenido y organizado!
Pathetic and desperate with the ads. I’m not gonna pay for this app, so let it go. 1/5
They lure you in with minimal adds, then suddenly BOMBARD you between every game. Many, with up to thirty second delays and an additional click box. Let it go, guys.
By Angry Goldie 2
Too many very long adds. Makes it very boring and I've lost interest.
Bat brain game ever!!! 5/5
I enjoy playing peak so much!! And I feel like it has helped my everyday life!!
Very annoyed 2/5
This game is very good and can help you become smarter and all, but for all the ads it is not worth it. I get that having ads is part of a game and does push people to get premium, but that is too much. You can only do one game per day with no premium?!? This game would be very good but with all the Ads in it is very pathetic
This isn’t what it says it is 2/5
They claim your brain trains itself and you become smarter the more you use the app. Then they have these 50 different games you play that focus on different things to show you your progress and make you think you are making progress. The issue I have with it is you only play 5 games a day, and sometimes I forget what the purpose of the game is and it takes a couple seconds to figure out what you are supposed to do. When you play everyday you are more likely to remember the object of the games and therefore you score higher because you are prepared for how to play, not because you are improving your brain function but simply because you know what to do when the game starts. They offer tutorials before the game but I often forget to click on them and there were a couple that even after watching I didn’t fully get.
I’m an engineer, I fancy myself to be above average intelligence, but it’s certainly not because of this app. I deleted the app today seeing little to no value. I would have kept it but the ads in between each of the mini games take as long as the game itself almost. I get you need ads, but do one before you start playing and one after, not one in between each mini game (there are 5).
Fun but expensive 2/5
It was fun but now commercials between every game unless you pay ...
Deleted the app without playing. 1/5
Sayonara, sister. Don’t have a Facebook account. Ain’t providing an email just to play a free app.😤🖕🏽
Horror Ads 3/5
Horror movie ads are not the way I want to start my day. Love this game without them!
Pushing pro 4/5
Fun game. Wish there was more to do without paying for pro
Thank you. 3/5
This game is cool. I like the mini games. But I think you should be able to do everything without going pro. Learning should be free so should getting better at things and making your brain the best it can be. But I understand that all companies need to get money to keep the business going and making the customers happy and all that jazzy-ness. I just think you should take off pro so that people who can’t go pro can find their full potential. Thanks!!
P.S. I really like the games!!!!!!!!
Simple phone games 2/5
By Kidney check
Too many simple phone “reaction” games masked as intelligence tests.
Love it great games.
Can’t compare with known FB friends . 2/5
By Too cheap to pay to play
Since my roomie added peak to her android phone after I told her about it. we can't seem to get my account to see hers. I paid for a family pro user add-on but can’t find her account. I’m told her email is not a valid or active account. Yet she can see me when she compares herself with friends. If I could find her account it would help. I’m using IOS on iPad Pro she has android phone. If that matters why can she see me? Why can’t I add her.?
Fun and interactive 5/5
It’s fun to play the games while working out my brain!
Ad Feedback 4/5
Since the ads appearing for free users do not allow for filtering, and the app doesn’t offer a way to address this otherwise, I will leave this message here: I have objections to some of the ad content and I would like to have the ability to opt out of certain ads (especially those focused on sniper and murder games) that I think have no place on a brain training app, in favor of other ads.
Better than the competitors out there. 5/5
I have been using Peak for more than a year. They are always updating the app and their games. But the best thing I like about them is their researches with the top University and their professors around the globe. I highly recommend Peak over other competitors out there.
Brain tease 5/5
I enjoy the test that my brain is put to when playing this game!
Bamboozled into sales 1/5
By Free USB
I got this App because I like challenging but simple games. It is fun and I felt pretty good about it’s little encouraging stats. I feel really tricked though. An add popped up to buy full access, as I tried to exit the Apple ID authorization came up and while I was trying to exit the app my thumb print was read and I panicked. I checked around on the app to see if anything would tell me my status or what my account was or any purchases I made and I couldn’t find anything. I checked my bank account immediately and there wasn’t anything so I figured it didn’t go through.. More than a week later I get an email confirmation about the purchase when I had already stopped using the app... this wasn’t right, there should have been more transparency from the app about what they had done. I don’t trust it and I don’t suggest this app for this reason alone.
COMPLETELY OFF 2/5
By Nerdy 'n' nice
I started on this app only about a month ago and have recently received my “brain map score,” or what ever. I am a smart 13 year old that struggles with words sometimes but it says that I exceed in language but have AWEFUL COORDINATION. I may not be great with my hands but I can land a perfect handstand and when faced with boredom, I SOLVE THE PROBLEM BY FINDING SOMETHING TO LISTEN TO. I am very left brained and this is not accurate. If we could have the option to get rid of outliers, I would have a higher score because I am not perfect. I will continue to use this app though. Great app though.
Good way to start the day 5/5
By Lucky Chuckie
I enjoy the games. It’s a good thing to do to start my day at 72.
Me gustaría no tener que coger las partes de lenguaje ya que el idioma que hablo es el español.
I appreciate your response; however, your logic makes no sense. The number of ads continues to increase and the length of time continues to increase. Revenue is fine. BUT...you failed to address the CHANGE in ads. Your ad volume increased. I get ads all the time now and this was not the case. Your solution - BUY OUR PRO VERSION - is not a solution. Should you have kept it the way you did, I may have been convinced. But, now, you only seem $$ hungry. Rather than providing a solution or, better, reverting back to WHAT WAS, you simply tell your customer to “pay us”. Customer service is pretty poor. Unimpressed.
So disappointed. I’ve been playing for 15 days now and today everything changed. Playing the regular mode - not buying Pro - and I was content doing my daily workout and that’s it. If I wanted to do more, I knew I was “buying in” to watching a 30 second ad. Not any more. Today, there was an ad after each game during my daily workout. My girlfriend and I love doing the daily workout every morning. But, if ads like this continue, we both agreed: DELETE app. 2 stars of what would be a 5 star game.
I find doing this is helping me to try n remember things
Instructions are flashed on screen quickly, making it hard to figure out the rules. I like Elevate better for cognitive training. I will not even use my free 7 days.
Good game for our very important brain 5/5
By Georg 999
Free it’s ok 3/5
But, should have an option before playing your daily games that asked questions like are you inebriated, are you extra tired. So see the differences during these times. I usually play after 12am so I’m not interrupted. Even that should be a question. Also the decoder game is flawed. As it raises rank it doesn’t tell you about the secondary numbers, and if you know before the last number or as the last number hits it marks as incorrect when you are actually correct.
Fantastic upgrade! 5/5
I was kind of a fair weather friend to Peak until this last update. I really like the enhancement to seeing my status and next badges available prior to starting the game. And I especially love the new streak! Now I can’t wait to see how many days I can get on my streak! 😊
Good app but promotions came on and there is no way to get back to the games
Need to have more daily training
I know you’re relying on people upgrading so you can make money. I don’t fault you for that. But I’m not going to. Sorry. But that’s what makes this boring.
Not enough challenges that are free per day
I canceled my subscription through the app. Even took the survey at the end that you have to take for cancel your subscription but I was still charged for another year. $34.99 taken out of my account for an app I don't even use. Don't waste your money this app will still charge you after you cancel. Pretty disappointed to be honest.
Not free 1/5
You get two things for free, and then have to pay for it. It doesn’t say that anywhere.
Too many ads 3/5
It becomes a distraction.
Fake advertising 1/5
The brand shows ads with interesting logic games but when you download it the games are completely different. I’m canceling my subscription.
Peak gives your brain a good work out 5/5
I recently sustained a concussion and my neurologist recommended that I download PEAK to stimulate my brain and hopefully regain skills. I feel that the varied exercises require me to push myself to my limits and I can tell that I am gaining back some of my skills because of these programs. I highly recommend PEAK for anyone wanting to stimulate their brain.
New games in Pro reduces score 3/5
I signed up for Pro for a month. FAQ says new games do not count against your score for a while. That is not true. My score goes down each time there is a new game in my workout. My score has reduced by 74 since playing Pro workouts in the last 2 weeks.
Best brain game! 5/5
Must get this, best around.
Great, but... 4/5
I love this app, I really do, but I perform lowest on coordination, and there are only 2 games for this skill set. Unfortunately, I've of them, "jump control" does not recognize my finger, and it's gives inconsistent results. Every other skill has more than 2 games, but this one is flawed. Perhaps it is me, but I've tried applying greater pressure, ensuring my fingertips are warm, and other random tactics but it does not detect them and I look super uncoordinated. I don't care about that part as much as the mere frustration that accompanies this app. Much like the definition of insanity, but I AM changing my technique and STILL getting the same results.
UPDATE: Developer response helped us! 5/5
Yes, yes, I understand that you need revenue from ads. I changed my star rating because I don't really care about ads anymore. You all continue making money and put all the ads all you want. 🤑🤑🤑
I’ve been using Peak for 2 weeks now and I’ve been very happy about it. Peak gave me games that were all fun and addicting at the same time. From focus games, to memory games, to problem solving games, literally all of them are fun. As the name suggests, it helps you train your brain, which is super important in teen year. I’ve had a minor problem, just a minor one. I’m using the latest version of Peak. Promise me, this game is awesome other than this one minor problem. I’ve been getting 30 second unskippable ads after it shows the ending screen. It doesn’t really matter to me, because you’re really making this much money here. No hate, but I think you took ads a bit too far. Just a tiny bit. I understand you need to make money quick, but for other people suffering stress, it can make them even more stressed. Other than this issue, this brain training game is very good.
