Great app
by 2JJ1 on 2019/11/12 10:45
No other free app even compares
There’s no way to contact peak - so I’ll leave this here...
by Haaatt on 2019/11/12 00:10
In the zen word fresh, the tips say that you can have up to 3 multipliers on the board at a time, but I can’t seem to make that happen? There is nothing in the how to play that explains it... not sure if it’s an error.
This game is a really good game.
by 🦴💀🦴 🔪🛡 on 2019/11/11 23:42
It has a lot of educational and also fun games.
It’s ok.
by Añia11:11 on 2019/11/10 18:41
I really enjoy these mind games. But it’s a bit annoying that you are t able to play all of them. Idk I guess I am not patient. Still it’s something to do.
Feeling it
by Ccccc lil c on 2019/11/08 23:42
I can feel my brain working and it brings back times of school when I would actually use my brain
Fun but unstable
by Gonink Design on 2019/11/08 11:56
I honestly favor this app over some of their competitors because of the nature of games. They’re more engaging and fun to play. BUT, the free version crashes constantly. In a single workout I might have to close and restart the app 3 times during 5 games. Makes me nervous to even consider the paid version.
Great App
by Mussytime missy on 2019/11/08 00:41
Love this app. It gives you great information about your abilities and keeps you wanting more.
Not for us...
by beattheprogress on 2019/11/08 00:23
What I mean is why do I have to pay $5 to learn the memory palace when it’s used all of the world. I can learn it from YouTube better and how I should apply it from real people. I suggest having real people to connect with without added charges as part of pro version. Second, physical application is critical for memory so the course should include this. That is how any business lasts, when the people are priority. The app is addictive which tells me it was designed to be that way and that way is not for the betterment of the people. Chow
Another app that requires a subscription
by ha Anzy on 2019/11/07 16:04
Don’t download, it requires money
Lazy

Another company too lazy to do a landscape version for larger iPad users
I liked it. Bought the Pro version. Now I love it.
by Ryanxj9000 on 2019/11/06 21:29
Great app. 100% worth my money. Wait for the discount though which they will definitely alert you of. I bought the lifetime acess for 40% off. Good deal. I plan on ising this regularly. Inused to have a Lumosity subscription. But this is way better. It is easier to use on my phone and it is way less expensive. I love that it links to research papers in some of the advanced courses, two of which I bought on improving memory. I also like that it tells you who created some of the games and from what research the game was developed from. Great job, guys. Great app. A guilt-free fun gaming app.
Very nice support

No

I don’t want to create an account I wanted to play the games. Forcing me to make an account to use the app is unacceptable.
Progress change
by Gbocc on 2019/11/05 04:27
It's amazing and, frankly, motivating to see what a year off from playing Peak is like. My scores are so much lower without practicing or exercising my brain with these science-backed games, and I'm less stressed now than when I was playing regularly with my Pro subscription! On a nine-day streak and working to get those scores back up to par. I've been recommending* it to my senior clients so they can improve their memory skills, as well. ** Would be nice for iOS users to have a free week of pro for each recommendation who buys pro like Android, at least used to, get as a reward. Not sure if this is perk exists?
Don’t waste your time
by Iburnvx on 2019/11/05 00:52
You must purchase for $35 no thanks. Not much of a free version. I wasted time downloading this app. But the three games I got to play seemed nice lol. But at $35 lol no thanks!
Consideration
by Kolleartist on 2019/11/04 13:27
It’s a pleasant game for the most part yet I notice a few times it records an event with an error when quite clearly the person was smiling, another fill their funnel thing but when it’s time for them to fill yours where are they going to be?
Great

Astounding
by george61k on 2019/11/03 16:08
I will admit that this brain game exercise truly enhanced my performance;although, I’m becoming quite annoyed 0f the same exercises every day. There will need to be more of a variation to it.
Seriously? 🤬
by Wow 😳 good 🦄🦄🦄🦄 on 2019/11/03 13:46
So the app said it was 4+. But in game, you have to be 13!!! Plus, without Pro, you can only do games once a day!! I’m 10! I don’t have the money to subscribe! Why can’t you make it cheaper and NOT LIE!!
Scam
by ihavebeebkidnapped on 2019/11/03 13:07
This app is trying to get you to buy their premium version of the app. The overall brain score it gives you for is really low on purpose. You could be in the top 95% in every game, but your overall score will only be around 300. The only way to make this score higher is by playing the games more times so you improve at that game. That’s where the problem occurs. If you pay for their premium membership, you have unlimited access to all the games and can play them until you master them. This app isn’t making you smarter, it’s making you better at pointless mini games and puzzles, but telling you it’s improving several vague categories of brain activity.
Love this app but please fix
by Newbr on 2019/11/03 02:45
I’m using the free version of this app and do the daily workout as faithfully as possible. But for some reason the last 2 days it keeps freezing up when an advertisement comes on after a workout and I have to close out of the app and clear it to get back on it. Please fix this issue.
99th percentile!
by Kaner1781 on 2019/11/02 19:34
This app is amazing. I am now ranking in the 99th percentile for overall ability and haven’t even paid for any of the Pro game options. “Grow”, “Object Find”, and the dreaded “Pixel Logic” (thinks that’s the name) are the 3 I struggle with the most. My peak score is only between 300-550 on those. My overall Peak score is now up to 780. Numerous single games I have a rank north of 900. I may yet still pay for the Pro games to continue challenging myself and become the greatest of all time! Ha 💯😜
Improvement
by Chauncey.C on 2019/11/02 08:59
As I increase my streaks , I should be able to gain temporary access to play select exclusive games.
What happened?
by holmes11b on 2019/11/02 04:55
Keeps freezing up after each ad.
Peak not working for me
by M3mama on 2019/11/02 03:31
I have reloaded this game twice now, and it keeps freezing after I get through one game. Won’t move on for hours. So frustrating. Why would I pay for the upgrade?
Problems
by dhazel57 on 2019/11/01 15:06
I have had this app for a-least two years. I got new iPad 6. Now after the first ad the game is frozen and cannot play. I have tried downloading game same response. Going to a different app. Love the game but cannot play.
Multiple devices?
by JoannaJB on 2019/10/31 17:26
I have a lot of fun with this app, but I don’t understand why my scores and standings don’t show up the same on my iPhone and iPad.
Mixed
by AzDesertSun on 2019/10/31 03:31
Many (most) games challenging & interest grabbing. Great effort on creation & mix of them. Too many advertisements though & used to be more seamless experience.
Challenging games
by D007B on 2019/10/31 01:52
I like this game, but they have started adding more commercial videos in between games. Otherwise it’s fun to try to keep improving your own scores.
Great for mind exercise, but one specific game is messed up
by Production6 on 2019/10/30 11:56
I really really love this app and would give it a 5 but the answers on spin cycle don’t always get marked correctly, it’s jacking up my score! I’d love for that to be corrected, outside of that I love all the other brain exercise games, even the hard ones
Love app...need new games
by Saegrrl on 2019/10/29 18:59
I really enjoy this app so I paid for the premium version. It has helped me in many ways, but the coordination section needs better selection of games.
Peak review
by peachyarteacher on 2019/10/29 14:48
Peak is easy to access. I believe it is helping me have a healthier brain. Fun and engaging. I enjoy the challenge.
Good for keeping skills sharp

Love Peak
by MsDee77 on 2019/10/29 02:19
I love playing these games! Of course I have my most favs, as well as my least favs. They’re all challenging. Language games are always high on my list of most favs. Problem Solving is not my strong suit, but exercising my brain is what’s important. Also love pushing myself to reach the highest levels. It seems after you reach “Legend”, you’re just playing for fun. Levels beyond “Legend” should be created as incentive to keep it challenging and interesting.

by KillaB1906 on 2019/10/29 01:59
This really helps my brain daily I love this so much
No warning!!!
by girlonthebikeny on 2019/10/29 01:34
They offer free trial, for one week. Then bam! No warning that hey we’ll charge you for one year, because you already stopped playing and forgot you signed in for this trial!!! And the best, it’s so difficult to get a refund, as you have to talk to apple itunes. I MISSED GOOGLE play store already....

Really good App
Peak used to be fun. Not any more!
by Former Fannnnn on 2019/10/28 19:45
Now there are so many ads, it’s aggravating to play. If you want to restart a game, replay or even between games, there are tooooo many ads. I would not recommend it. I’ll probably close my app once I find something else.
Fun, challenging, and good interface
by ginasatchmo on 2019/10/28 15:56
Good games that are challenging and entertaining. I appreciate how the system tracks progress and think the cost for the game is worth it. Especially if you wait until they are running a special. Better than Lumosity in my opinion.
Great app!
by lillian6224 on 2019/10/28 12:50
I highly suggest this app! It's fun and good for your brain!
Going down hill
by Joyceblessed on 2019/10/27 14:43
Some games really have no point, some don’t give you what you need to play it, most don’t give you time to do it. The game with the red, yellow and blue balls that you collect and hit the character of the same color, well most of the time you don’t get the color balls you need or there is no character to destroy. You keep scrolling left and right and there is nothing to do. Then the time is up! The ads are very annoying after each game, which didn’t used to be. I subscribed for one year and it was a waste of my money. So I unsubscribed and I get more adds now than I did before. On a weekly basis on the daily workout I play the same games and there are so many you can rotate but you don’t. I am on the verge of deleting this app and finding another brain app.
Great, just have a small but really annoying bug
by Premium force on 2019/10/26 21:38
Great all around app for improving cognitive ability. Although whenever I finish a game it always shows a blank white screen that I cannot get rid of unless I close app. Presumably, this is only with the free version because it’s always after I close an ad. Please get someone to fix this thank you.
Awesome!!! BUT...
by Lovekamp22 on 2019/10/26 15:13
I LOVE this app!!! Dare I say ... better than Lumosity... more options ... more games...better stats/ analysis — especially if you go Pro!!! HOWEVER: As a math teacher ... I found an error in one of your Moving Math problems... 2+ (____ x 5 ) = 19 There is NO WAY to get 19 given the numbers 1-9 and the operations you give us...I missed one bc it could not be done!! I paused the game and even showed the rest of my family...thinking I misread a number...
5min Worth of play!!
by xpanth on 2019/10/26 06:56
After the first 5min of play, you’re asked to upgrade to paid version or wait 24hrs to play some more! What a scam?!

Versatile and dynamic Emotional intelligence
by SirJeeOhhh on 2019/10/25 21:09
Honestly I never do reviews. But it is hard to find a good “brain” app. What I look for is dynamics and versatility and most Importantly one that has emotional intelligence. Which I have yet to come across until now. I LOVE it. The best thing ever and highly recommend it BecuAse versatility and a dynamic program is key to use all areas of the brain. To use it and not lose it!!! <3
Great but
by natgparker on 2019/10/25 16:39
I really like the idea of this app but I don’t want to have to pay annually to be able to use all of its features. If this app were free and unlimited without purchase I’d use it all the time.
New Revision has way too many ads.
by PJ6688 on 2019/10/25 15:56
Used to be fun, now too many ads.
Love and Addicted But...
by Coach 67 on 2019/10/25 05:13
I like this app a lot. I like the challenges and different skill levels. The only thing I don’t care for is how often it freezes after completing an exercise. Why does this keep happening. Doesn’t make sense to me. I have to force to close the app. Restart it. Then go back to where I was. Please fix this.
Good App, but FB dependent
by Allen L. on 2019/10/24 16:28
I love the games, and the streak tracker does an okay job at keeping me consistent in my workouts. That said, I bought this app as a mental workout for my family, but soon discovered that I can only compare to FB friends. My family is on the same family plan, but several of them don’t use FB because it’s pretty bad for anxiety. That means I can’t track my progress against them in this game. As a friendly competitor, that removes a good deal of motivation for me.
Good app but scoring makes no sense
by Kcdee71 on 2019/10/24 15:18
I’ve been playing this game for a while and am a tester for it. I like the variety of games but it is frustrating to do really well and have no change to overall score and then do slightly less well and overall score goes down. The algorithms seem very skewed towards negative performance. There are quite a few glitches also which have been around for a long time with no fix. Overall I enjoy it but wish these things would get addressed.
Watch video to replay doesn’t work!
by no nicknames here! on 2019/10/24 12:36
The watch video to replay or unlock a gane doesn't work. There’s always a loading error message that appears. Besides that great app, but really wish they would fix this bug!
Great game but...
by ToyKer on 2019/10/24 11:17
I do look forward to playing it everyday. I like the variety of games, the graphics, and sound effects. It's cool! The only thing I would want is for them to have grace period for the streak. Since it’a a paid app, that would be nice.
Don’t expect to sample without spending money
by cdennist on 2019/10/24 10:35
Terrible app. 50% of screen time is a sales pitch.
Super Buggy for a 39.99 app
by hdalmwhxuv on 2019/10/24 01:07
Trial version is fine, but the app freezes and glitches too much for any investment. Some of the games were helpful, most did not sustain an activity long enough to notice any kind of improvement. “Leveling” also happens way too fast in some of the harder focus and coordination games, to the point where you can’t ever get better because you did very well by chance one time. Some of the games were too glitched to even use, (the jump game is trash) or you’d make it all the way through and the app would freeze. Not worth $4 let alone $40.
Could be better
by Saraa3 on 2019/10/23 21:51
There are so many ads at this point that it ruins the entire app. Not only are so many ads annoying, i end up having to restart the app frequently because the ads will freeze. This app used to be a lot better. It’s gone way downhill.
Mostly Good
by Laur5 on 2019/10/23 21:08
When I bought Peak I paid for a lifetime subscription. I love the games although I’d like more options for coordination. I find them a good balance of fun and challenging. One thing that continues to bother me however is that there is no way to add just one more person. It’s a little ridiculous to require a $99 payment to let my kid play on their own profile. I didn’t pay even close to that much for a lifetime of peak playing. I absolutely believe in paying people for their creative and inventive work and I enjoy the game but there should absolutely be an affordable option to add just one profile not 5!

Read the privacy policy. Always check your Apple ID subscription management. Learned my lesson the hard way. Even if your account doesn’t exist anymore, they still take your money.
Really fun but...
by Dorian211 on 2019/10/21 21:56
Great app, lots of fun, the games are increasingly challenging, definitely a great download! It’s a bit expensive, but as I was informed by the developer, they are continuously updating every aspect of the service so the prices do make a bit more sense than not. Great way to start the day, get that brain juice a’flowin!

Great app
by catwoman153 on 2019/10/21 18:02
I have been using this for a few years and I really do feel like there’s a noticeable improvement in the six areas it’s meant to improve. My only complaint is that there are some games I absolutely hate, not because they’re harder than other games in the same category, just because I simply don’t enjoy playing them. There’s no way to completely exclude these games from the daily workout, which I think would be a nice feature. I do see that this may be difficult to execute since some categories have only a few games while others have several games, but I still think it would be a nice option.

The jump control game/challenge doesn’t register your fingers properly; senses that you’ve lost contact with the screen when, in fact, your fingers are exactly where they are supposed to be. Frustrating.
Needs some work
by Heart4ake on 2019/10/16 15:53
I love this app, but the word path game has some bugs in it as sometimes throughout the gameplay it will stop placing tiles and accepting words that I know are actually words and have played in the game before. Other than this minor flaw I love this subscription!

Fun games but scores don’t carry forward. It’s always as if I’m playing on day one.
Bad directions
by urlosingme on 2019/10/15 13:16
The directions on how to perform these tests is very poor. I have to play the games before I can figure out the objectives
A great app. Worth buying pro.
by Oddlit on 2019/10/15 04:02
I love this app. I haven’t played as regularly as I should, but so far it’s been great. It definitely helps you figure out your strengths and weaknesses so you can work on them; but it doesn’t have a lot of focus on your weaknesses. It would be nice if the excercises catered to those. That said, if you buy pro you can practice what you want when you want. Also, there doesn’t seem to be any ads, which is nice.
Cool

Adds are terrible
by PEEK is poor app on 2019/10/14 00:47
The constant adds in this app are hurrendous . Detracts from what should be a great app and complete turn off from actually purchasing. B-league and and behind the curve, apps did this years ago. Lumosity is better simply for this reason.
Great Brain Tease!
by Honey 2 on 2019/10/12 12:38
A great set of Brain Games! Constantly evolving to offer new challenges. I like that you can track your progress , the different levels and the individual challenges as well. I wish the instruction for some of the challenges were a bit clearer, but after a play or two you figure it out
Don’t waste your time
by alicesmommy1995 on 2019/10/12 02:47
Sounded fun until after the “assessment”. They let you play a few short games and you can’t even replay them because they forgot to mention it’s a $40 annual subscription to go “PRO”. So dumb. You can’t really use this app unless you are ready to drop hard cash after the 7 day free trial.

I get the same game everyday as game of the day for a couple weeks. What’s up with that?
Excellente appli!

Great game for memory
by Joy Lee D. on 2019/10/10 23:19
Thus game really challenged my memory. I love it.
Get it

This is the best app for ur brain!!!
Good Tease
by Sidhfneidusksjdjc on 2019/10/10 16:10
The games are legit as fook but you have to pay monthly to get the whole thing. I’d def do a one time payment but not a fookin subscription.
Great tool
by Wedutch5 on 2019/10/10 15:31
I use Peak, Lumosity and Elevate. All three are great tools. Peak has by far some of the most fun games.
My daily brain food!
by BabblerBot on 2019/10/10 14:59
I have been training with Peak since 2015! I am still training and I cannot live without it! I have noticed a big difference in my daily life. This training really does make a difference in the way our brains perform when it’s done daily. I noticed my brain agility is amazing! I think quicker and have been able to focus much better. I hope the makers continue to add more challenges and workout because I cannot get enough of them! You will not regret getting this gem of an app!
Too many ads!
by Mexico76 on 2019/10/09 16:13
All of a sudden there are ads constantly. I am deleting this app as it makes me too angry in the morning.
Best App I’ve Spent Money On
by RandaRenee on 2018/10/05 21:53
I’m one of those child prodigy genius turned horribly depressed adults, wondering why my brain quit working like it used to. I’ve been training for a couple months now, with my highest streak being 41. I can actually feel myself getting better and better. My memory in everyday life is better, I can focus on my tasks much easier, I’ve started having a MUCH easier time relating to others, and my once horrendous problem solving skills are through the roof. I can tell in everyday life as I come to better solutions much faster than I normally would have. I only have two scores below 400 now (total score above 500) and I’m so very proud of myself. Looking at the progress I’ve made is astonishing. The brain is a muscle like any other. If you want it to be fit, you must train like you do with the rest of your body. I’ve done brain games in the past but lost momentum because the games were just not that fun and it was the same game every day. With Peak, there’s so many different options to chose from and you never really get bored. I do have a few games I dislike playing because I’m not good at them, but it’s easy to remind myself why that means they’re the most important to do. I HIGHLY recommend this app to anyone struggling. My depression and anxiety have gotten much more manageable as well, but I’ve been putting in my own separate work for that on top of the training.
Thank you Peak!
by yoginidevi on 2019/02/27 15:33
Wow... I’m so glad I found this app. I was in a bad car accident a year and a half ago and my brain got seriously smashed up. As a result my memory (mostly short term) and math skills disappeared. I’ve been using Peak for about 2 months and I see significant changes in my memory abilities. Just a few weeks ago I was still telling any new person I talked to that I might lose my train of thought and I always felt self-conscious about my memory skills because it was so apparent when you spoke with me that they still hadn’t recovered. And just yesterday I realized that I haven’t had to excuse my poor memory to anyone lately, and in fact I go days where I don’t remember it’s an issue (not because my memory is bad but because it’s no longer such a problem!). And because of this app I actually learned that my math skills disappeared. I always just thought my mind was being lazy but when I saw it first hand how hard it was for me to do simple math on this app I saw the problem. It was really troubling and embarrassing when I realized - I used to be good at math - but I’ve been slowly getting better. So essentially this app has been my brain rehab! And I couldn’t be more happy about my progress! Thank you!!!
Irritated
by LanceLance on 2018/04/29 11:09
I’m not going to lie, the game is super fun to tease your brain and allows you to do something actually more productive than scrolling fake news. But the customer service is a little crooked, I subscribed for a monthly subscription then I got this error saying only one Peak account can be associated with one Apple ID/ credit card method, well I did subscribe for a different account before so it makes sense (though it bugs me a little that they should have warned the customer before they charged them and alerted only afterwards) I logged in the other account to check and the Pro version wasn’t there either so I had to contact them. In the response they said they hung both accounts in idle because they didn’t know which one to officially put into the system, when my email came they put the Pro version into the old account (it bugs me for a second time because even though they solved my problem, they should had asked me which account I would like to make as a primary). I want the new account to be my primary so I ask them maybe, just maybe if they can change it, I would totally understand if they cannot, I just want an answer. Now I’m really irritated that my email went unanswered for days (the other email was answered within hours, so they possibly had to have read this one too). I did not demand to have my account changed. I just ask if they could do it, why do they have to avoid giving an answer?
Games are fun, but difficult to determine if worth paying for pro
by sae-wat on 2019/02/08 20:59
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.
MIND BLOWING!!!!!
by Ray M. Cruz on 2018/01/06 19:22
I think what really pushes people away from this app is the subscription which do very depending if there’s a sell going on. I upgraded to pro and am now paying 1.37 a month and don’t mind that price. There are issues here and there (LIKE EVERY APP) because nothing in this world is perfect. But I gotta give it to the developers. These games work. You’re giving your brain a daily workout which will help you throughout your day and your future. I think it’s worth the monthly subscription for me. Because I can’t remember the last time my brain got a workout like this. And you instantly feel the difference after playing and that’s MIND BLOWING! I feel if people give the game a chance, pay for the subscription, if it’s worth it for you (If money does play a roll I would wait for some sell), keep writing reviews to help the developer fix the few issues the app DOES HAVE, maybe the developer will listen to the fan base and make the right improvements and the app will become even better than it already is. All I’m saying is that the Human brain is a STATE OF THE ART WEAPON. Why not keep it sharp and active in all areas. Help the app grow. I know I will.
I Highly Recommend this App
by Chris1234567891011121314151 on 2018/05/18 12:51
I downloaded this app in the hopes it would not be like seemingly most apps now where you have to pay to do anything. Luckily with peak that isn’t true. Without paying anything you can play about 10 maybe 15 different mind games in your daily workout. I never spend money on mobile apps, but I love peak so much I bought a subscription to Pro for 1 year and with it I can play way more games, and any of them whenever I wish as much as I wish. Peak aesthetically is amazing everything is sleek and clean, and easy to understand. The games all have tutorial vids which are only about 10-15 seconds that are option each time you play so if you forget, Peak has you covered. If there is one thing I would change, it’s that It seems that you can’t have more than one workout active at a time without messing up the tracking. If I complete a game it tries to check it off for the other workout. Honestly it’s not really a big deal, I just want the satisfaction of the checks marks when I use more than one workout.
This isn’t what it says it is
by Tridecaphi on 2019/09/14 12:48
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).
amazing but few problems
by UniKittie 🦄 on 2019/02/25 04:24
This app is honestly amazing! I mean, with all it’s games, it’s a great app. But, there are a few problems. To begin with, whenever I want to play one of the games, but I have to watch an ad to play it, I watch the ad, but then everything glitches out! For example, I can’t click on anything and nothing would work, so I have to refresh the app, which is quite annoying because I wasted my time watching an ad to get no reward. And yes, this happened multiple times, each time I tried to watch something to play a game. However, it works on the daily workout section, but other than that, it glitches out on the other sections. To add on, why do we have to be a member to look at our stats. Yes, we can look at how we increased or decreased in the last month or week, but to look it our stats for 3 months, 6 months, and a life time? I don’t think it’s necessary for us to be a member to look at our progress. I get that we have to be a member to get better games for our brain, but just for our stats? It makes no sense to me to be honest. This is an overall great app with a few problems.
Games are so addicting good for you!
by Jackie swan on 2017/12/24 06:08
It's important to exercise your brain in many different ways! I can tell the days I don't do my workouts before work. When I don't, It's seems like I'm not as focused or awake and tend be more groggy. Also, (as embarrassing as it is) I've always struggled with words due to my dyslexia, and this has helped me get over the "pressures" of finding/spelling words. Turns out I'm actually quite good at them (better than my husband and it drives him crazy!) I guess I've lived my whole life telling myself I'm not good with words, so I wasn't. But now Peak helped me see that's not entirely true. Some/most games are so much fun too! To spend one on one interactive time together, my husband and I will pull out my phone and take turns playing games to challenge each other. I only wish we could select a "guest" button when he is playing so he doesn't effect my mental progression charts. I only bought into it because I got it on cyber Monday for $.99 a month. Worth the $.99 but I would never have signed up for $3!
Great app. False progress.
by orionc123 on 2019/06/30 04:04
This app is great for training your brain, and improving your overall mental health. I have one complaint though: the progress you see is not entirely accurate. The score you receive is entirely based on the level of difficulty you’re playing at, and you don’t unlock the more difficult levels without having to grind out the beginner stuff. Some of the games at beginner & novice are a cake walk. It’s easy to perform perfectly, but scoring perfectly on a beginner or novice puzzle will sometimes give you a peak score of less than 400. As you unlock the harder levels, you’re able to score higher because that restriction is gone. This falsifies the results a bit, so it’s not reflective of your actual progress. Don’t get me wrong; this app is extremely beneficial, and tons of fun. It could just use one fix. Developers: if you’re reading this, please remove the restriction on the higher difficulties for new users. It’s pretty boring to breeze through the easy puzzles to get scores that aren’t reflective of one’s mental ability. Not only is it misleading, it may deter new users who don’t feel like grinding out the beginner puzzles. 3/5.
enhances essential skills and VERY FUN!!
by MadelineO on 2018/08/22 02:37
Peak is probably the best app I have ever encountered in the sense that you’re phone isn’t killing your brain cells but actually strengthening them. Peak creates personalized “daily workouts” customized for your brain. These workouts consist of a variety of games that not only make your brain healthier and stronger but are also very enjoyable and fun. You can also do a series of workouts designed for you (even one with the games you need to improve on). With the Pro Package, if you don’t feel like following a guideline, you can choose any of the many games they have to do on their own. Each game is designed to build upon a certain area of your brain. For example, there are games that focus on emotion, memory, coordination, etc. Some of the games are designed specifically do encourage positivity within you. There are also a few games for relaxation or fun without a time limit or a score. I highly recommend this app if you enjoy apps that don’t kill your brain cells, but are also extremely fun.
Best app of its kind that I’ve come across
by Dotmatrix123619 on 2019/04/28 15:57
I downloaded two or three of the highest ranking brain-training apps for a week or two because I feel as though my attention span hasn’t been the best lately, and Peak is the only one that’s still on my phone. I genuinely look forward to the snappy, engaging workouts each day, and they’ve become an enjoyable part of my daily routine. What sets this app apart from competitors is that it allows non-paying users to track their progress in much more detail, by showing you % improvements in each sector each day, as well as letting you compare your brain map to different age groups. Love that! I will say though, that the type of games I receive each day is quite skewed. I NEVER get any Emotion games, and Coordination and Problem-Solving ones are also few and far in between. If this were to be fixed, I’d definitely amend this review to add another star. All in all, I’ll be recommending this to my friends and family.
I have many problems
by dabbing isabelle on 2019/08/04 14:57
This app can be a good idea but there are many flaws. I understand why the point of having ads is important to have a game and it gives you a reason to buy the premium then and also ads=money but my problem lies with the constant ads like after every game another ad! Like calm yourself I’m not going to pay $35 a year just to probably delete the app in a month anyway. Also why do I have to buy the premium to replay a game once. I understand if u want to play the same game twice so you can’t constantly spam to get a higher score. Also one day by accident I held the play button and all my games were completed for me and my score decreased by 25%. Like I this is when I got like 3 weeks into the game and my scores were fairly high so I stopped playing the game for 2 weeks because of it then I recently got back into the game and i was mostly annoyed because I knew i couldn’t get it back anymore because I needed to spam play which I can’t obviously do because I have to pay for the premium. And you may be like then just buy the premium but $35 is a lot for a person who can’t get a job. Also it’s a mobile game which they are only addicting for about a month or so and they get boring.
Standardized testing in an app
by dreamneophyte on 2019/04/09 04:10
It is set up so there is a daily quiz. There is a set time of 30 seconds or so for each question and then it just ends, so if you have a streak going it’s broken and if your struggling you’ll never figure it out. You can’t go on the app and focus on the areas and problem you struggle with you can only do the set daily quiz. It doesn’t allow you to personalize it so that you can focus on what you struggle with. It might be that you’re not bad with that area of skill but the way that question is designed like you need to color in blocks in a certain manor but they use three or four shades of the same color so because it’s all a matter of shades you take longer double checking the shades to make sure it’s marked correctly than if they would have used different colors vs shades, that makes you struggle but just like a standardized test it’s one size fits all test. The “statistics” they give you about the capability of the “average” mind in an age group is a complete lie. I’ve talked to teachers and psychologists and neurologists and they all say that nobody, absolutely nobody has a perfect balance of medium skill level in all subjects. Everyone does better in some and worse in others by comparison.
I guess everyone is a genius
by Dfladge on 2018/06/28 21:52
Well everyone in my age group is a genius according to my brain map. The main thing that bothers me with this app is the opaque way you are scored in each category. My overall percentile is 61 percent, in language I’m at 85 memory I’m at 80. But in every other category well. 99 percent of the population is better at problem solving than I am I guess. No matter how much my scores improve in these categories, the percentile never moves which is irksome to say the least. What else bothers me? I absolutely hate the vibration when I get an incorrect answer, it totally throws me off track. I also despise a few games, happy river, is just really stupid and jump control could easily cause carpal tunnel syndrome. Despite these grievances, all in all, it seems to be a more productive distraction than say, candy crush, and some games are really enjoyable. Pixel logic is my absolute favorite. I’m still uncertain as to whether ones mental faculties are actually expanded by playing these games. I’m fairly certain the juries still out on that one.
Some games are great, but the data is thoroughly diluted
by Gabriel Moss on 2017/12/05 00:57
To put it simply: the best games in Peak are some of the most dynamic, brain-stretching and FUN games I’ve played in any brain trainer. Low-Pop, Pixel Logic, Tunnel Trance, Rush Back and Rush Back+ are some of my favorites. On the other hand, some of the games make little to no sense for their category and are limited by whichever hand you get with the game’s procedural generation whenever you launch. I’m talking about games like Happy River which rely thoroughly on RNG to generate a landscape where your luck can completely change the opportunities you have to score higher or lower, which have 0 business dictating the average score for something like “Emotion”. Games like Word-A-Like ask for very specific word combinations (which you’ll memorize with repetition anyhow) and yet that game affects your “Language” category. With Peak, you’re definitely giving your brain a workout, but take your recorded peak score with a grain of salt!
Lots of fun little games
by Fogfffhgcfg on 2018/01/10 04:20
This app is great for anyone who likes little games to pass the time. It’s designed to help you work on different parts of your brain development. I got the pro version on one of their discount deals which is the only way I would have payed for it. The app allows you to compare your brain map to others. The downsides are that is doesn’t explain how the brain map works. Is it better to have a larger spread map or a smaller spread. I would be interested in knowing more about the science that they use to come up with these statistics. The other down side is that the professions section of the brain mapping is very limited. I work in the mental health field and there isn’t even a broad category for my profession so I cannot compare my brain map to my colleges. Despite that the games themselves are fun and there are a lot of games which will make it less likely that I will get bored with the app. If you want to go pro then wait until there is a large discount offer. The app is quite pricey otherwise.
Gender Binary
by imfreed on 2018/01/12 16:57
This app is fun and easy to use. I have been playing for almost 20 days straight and can’t get enough. That is why it was so disappointing to see their misunderstanding of gender in the game “Word Pairs”- a game in which, in part, you have to match words with “opposite meaning.” Unfortunately they use the pair, boy/girl, as if men are the antithesis to woman. Women and men are different genders of the same species. They are not “opposite” which is defined as diametrically different. Diametrically means completely or directly. When we perpetuate the idea that men and women are “completely different” we are choosing to disregard the shared experiences and focus only on the differences. This is how we encourage prejudice, by defining a group as “other” or different than your own. Shame on Peak for engaging in such harmful behavior, especially as an app that is intended to push and develop cognitive skills. Your mission statement says: “We believe there’s always a little room for improvement, and we should strive to better ourselves bit by bit.” Please take this opportunity to update your games and better Peak.
Great app!
by Brendawg_1025 on 2019/01/13 21:46
This app is the best thing I have ever downloaded to my device! I use it every day and it really does help improve the way I think.( My grades have improved ever since I have started using this app). The only thing I I think could use improvement would be the ads you run on the app. After watching an ad so I could play an extra game for free the app froze and would not let me play the game. This was frustrating, but as this seems to be a new addition to the app I completely understand. It would be nice to fix this glitch as soon as possible so that I can continue using your awesome app! Also, if possible it would be nice if you could add to your extensive inventory of games for the free version of the app. The games on the free version get boring after a while... Overall thank you so much more making this app! I will continue using it and recommending it to everyone for as long as I live!😊
Fix the video ads on iPhone please
by Mental Static on 2019/04/17 19:49
W should start by saying I use the free version of this app. This app is alright to kind of keep on top of your mental but sometimes I do pretty poorly the first go around and I’d like to redo a game of the day. The have an option for that in the free version of you watch a video. That’s the only time I’ve seen them push ads on you besides telling you to upgrade every time you play the game. I’m fine with that. What I’m not fine with is watching the ad and not being able to exit out of the ad after it’s finished. I can’t even download the app they are advertising from the ad screen. It just gets stuck and doesn’t let you redo the mini game even if you restart :/ Other than that it’s a fun little way to fill some extra time on your hands and it’s not that addicting. Also, some of the mini game instructions can be vague. TL:DR Free version doesn’t let you redo games even after watch the ad and instructions for some games could be more clear
Enjoy the games, but not the glitches.
by dily64 on 2019/01/23 16:30
I have the free version of this app, and really enjoyed it when I first got it. Lately however, this app has developed glitches even though I’ve kept it updated. Since I have the free version, an ad will run if I want to replay a game, that’s fine. Not fine is having sat through the ad, the game never reloads and I’m left looking at a totally black screen. So, I close the app, reopen and start again. Maybe the game will load the next time, maybe it won’t. This happens too often. The most recent glitch is in a game called, ‘Word Fresh’. A word hunt game in which you slide your finger around a board of connecting letters to make a word. Each letter you touch shows up on a field above the game board so you can see the word you’re making. The glitch: the field shows the chosen letter, but the letter doesn’t ‘stick’. As soon as you move you finger from the selected letter, it disappears from the field, rendering the game useless. I still use the app, but too many problems to give it a higher rating.
Has really helped me manage symptoms of my mental illness and learning disability!
by lauburn on 2019/02/23 16:18
I have adhd, depression and generalized anxiety. Long story short I’ve been on medication for years and have decided to start to slowly ween off of them by climbing down the doses (under the supervision of a psychiatrist don’t worry) but the withdrawals from the medication have been putting me through hell. Especially after coming down 5 doses on my anti depressant I’ve experienced severe short term memory which I already had thanks to my adhd. This app has helped me tremendously! I’ve been using it for the last 2 years and I’ve seen an improvement in the way my mind operates. Of course it didn’t cure my adhd or depression lol but I do feel like these games have helped to stimulate certain weaker areas of my mind. Especially the memory and problem solving games have helped me so much! This app is worth the money!
Become Smarter AND Dumber at the Same Time
by HWMWH on 2019/01/11 11:27
So often, great APPs crumble under the weight of forcing end users to either pay to subscribe to the exclusive services or suffer the bombardment of advertisements in the form of 25 to 30 second videos. Unfortunately, with the coming of 2019, PEAK succumbed to the same pitfall. With limited time, most users will use an APP such as this on a commute by train or in the few minutes they have while downing a morning brew. There are four free games that a user can play daily, with advertisements of 25 to 30 seconds in length, this potentially takes up a minute and a half of a user’s time. When someone only has five minutes to play, well, you can do the math...the irony here with an APP, designed to expand our minds and grow our gray matter, forces users to watch mindless advertisements which do just the opposite. TL::DR PEAK would have deserved 5/5 stars if it didn’t add the advertisement videos in between some of the most beautifully designed games intended to make us all a little smarter.
Ads...ads...ads
by Mpls&SPBiker on 2019/09/07 15:24
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.
Looks great but needs a few key additions.
by Princess Crocodile on 2018/10/29 01:37
I have 4 kids and I was very attracted to this app for all the training possibilities for my kids, but they are small, and although the app is from 4+ there is no way to select a game without having to enter each one and selecting how to play, it would be great to categorize the games by age as well. Another important feature and a big reason why I’m not planning on buying until there is flexibility on this account is that there is no way to create another profile or user under the same account, even with the family plan, and for somebody with small kids is practically useless since they don’t have a separate device, let alone email address with a valid peak account. This game has great workouts, but I really think that with these changes it could be amazing for aiding in developing skills on the whole family. Hope you consider them at least! Thanks!
AMAZING😄😄😄🥳😄😄😄
by sbndsnvddbsbzjsb on 2019/05/29 23:28
I love this game! It has helped me improve on my focus and many other things. I really do like this game and I think it is great to train your brain in the summer before you go back to school so you can remember more. There is only 1 thing that I wish Peak would not do, that is make a limit on how many training games you can play a day and how many times you can play them. I wish they wouldn’t do that because I want to keep playing Peak, not only once a day but more than that, you have to pay money to get to play more training games as more than once. Other than that it’s AMAZING 😄. There is one suggestion that I would like to make and that is that you can play Peak more than once a day and that you can play a certain game over again without paying. Peak has helped me with many things. Thank you, Lily😄
Fun Concept, Broken Product and Service
by K.ay J.ay on 2019/08/27 19:25
A week ago I downloaded the Peak. I enjoyed it enough and was interested in trying out the pro trial period. So I start the two week trial and then.... nothing! It still kept on asking me to upgrade to pro even though I could see an active subscription for pro in my Apple account. So I decided to try it on my IPad to see if it was a glitch with my iPhone. Nope same thing happened. Then I tried deleted, reinstalling, canceling subscription, renewing it etc., but nothing worked. I then unwisely decided to purchase one of the add ons to see I those at least worked... and unsurprisingly, no I did not get access to the add on even though my account was charged for the product. So then I email their customer support and haven’t heard anything back from them in a week. Peak seems like a fun concept, but I don’t recommend this to anyone until they get their act and software together. There’s other “brain training” apps that I’ve had a much better experience with then with Peak at this point.
Restoring Pro problems
by Former Pro User on 2018/07/13 21:41
I decided to try upgrading to Pro so I bought the monthly subscription. I had no issues buying it, but it said that you can cancel it in settings. I didn’t really want the subscription for the next month so I tried clicking “restore purchase” assuming that it would pull up a page about restoring the purchase since it had a little arrow. Instead, it actually restored my purchase every time I clicked it. What bothers me is how when I was buying the subscription, it said to turn off the auto subscription in settings, but there was no option when I looked. Also, a while after I upgraded, I didn’t have the daily workout option. In the description of what you get when you upgrade, it says you get to unlock the last two games. Without the daily workout, I didn’t get those games unlocked. I know I could’ve just play any game I wanted while upgraded, but it was just something that I wasn’t supposed to happen.
Suddenly Set Back
by Avery Night on 2018/08/29 02:53
Peak is great and it definitely exercises my brain and keeps it sharper than it otherwise would. But I recently UPGRADED to Pro and all of my STATS went DOWN. I imagine this is because with the availability of all the other games, now there are suddenly a lot of zeros being taken into consideration from the games I have yet to play, but it was honestly incredibly DISHEARTENING when I looked at my progress and my stats had all dropped by at least 20%. All of my hard work and progress suddenly felt erased or disappeared, and though I know it's still there in my head, seeing my chart shrink in a major way is certainly not motivating, especially for someone who just shelled out the MONEY to be able to get even better. Maybe that's not something that occurred to anyone during programming, but it would be very nice if there were a DIFFERENT WAY of introducing unplayed games to the overall scores.
Great except...
by AliRose222 on 2017/10/20 07:25
So I love just about everything about this app. It's fun and I feel like I really am training my brain. However, my only complaint about this app (so far) is that it does not have enough information. For example, on the game called Grow you're supposed to create as many words as possible out of just a few letters, the bigger the better. One of my groups of letters was "mas" so immediately the biggest word I could think of was Massachusetts. Awesome for points right? No. The game kept telling me it wasn't a word, so I wasted time spelling it differently thinking I might be spelling it wrong, which caused me to get a low score. I spelled it correctly. I checked. It's frustrating because I cant replay the game (without paying) and I really do want to know my progress. This issue occurred with more than just this word. How can I learn when the game might not be as knowledgeable about certain things as I am?
LOVE
by Loveisduckes on 2019/04/24 01:00
I love this app, I’ve been playing it on and off for about a year and feel really good about my progress. It’s easy to do in the morning as a warm-up or before bed to give you a productive feel to stretch your mind. My very few concerns come from lots of experience and are very minor in comparison to how wonderful the app is. I do pay for the full access and I don’t regret it for a moment. I wish there were more emotion and coordination games in comparison to the other sections. I also really struggle with the Jump Control game as the way your fingers need to be placed is awkward and it actually hurts my arm to try to play it. It also is nearly impossible to complete the Perfect Jump reward as the game often has the ball go automatically where I have no control over and hit a bumper. Thanks for all your work on the app! It’s wonderful!
Love the game but...
by holyghostguy on 2019/05/12 05:12
I really enjoy this game and play every day. I have the pro version and read and understood what I was doing when I paid for the year. The only thing I have found that is a little irksome to me is the babble bots game. At the end of the game there is a list of words that show up that could have been made with the available letters. However, when you click on the definition look up button for the definition of a particular unknown word there is no definition available. It appears that this particular game just makes up words that are not actually words. I have a large vocabulary so am naturally inquisitive when I run across a word that I don’t know. To have nonsense words as part of this game is quite disappointing. I have also looked up these words on my own and have found no definition for them. Please update this game to make actual words. Thanks.
Worth the Time and Money
by ginnylove on 2018/04/05 15:31
Going on my second year using the paid version. I do the daily workout every day. Love the fun graphics and getting me to think in ways that I might consider outside my comfort zone. Turtle Traffic has really helped me to focus and stay calm in stressful situations. I’ve never been a video gamer of any kind. I don’t like the pressure of time limits. But I see how these games help me to think more clearly and improve my memory so I buck it up and now I actually enjoy them - especially as my scores increase on initially low-scoring games... The only game I don’t care for is Happy River. I’m sure there is some science to it but I don’t see how it improves my emotional intelligence. But that is a very minor complaint. The rest is awesome and I’m happily addicted to improving my skills in Pixel Logic when I need some down time. 😊
A complete hack
by RedHeadsRock1010 on 2018/05/06 06:31
This company obviously bought/wrote all their reviews. I thought the 1 month pro (to see if I wanted to go for a year subscription) was an awesome deal, but realized it tricked me into buying a year subscription at monthly installments - definitely not what I wanted. Tried to figure out if I could cancel immediately but nope. Once you’ve bought it you’re set. This completely ruined all pleasant feelings I had for it. I haven’t touched this awful cheat of an app since the week I bought it and figured out what happened when the payment came in. I wrote a review here with one star already and surprise surprise, it never showed up. I’ve heard about people being offered refunds (if you used the game and then suddenly tried to claim you wanted a refund after months of playing then gtf out of here) supposedly, but one was never offered for me. I enjoyed the app until it stole my money. I was planning on paying for a month to see if I liked it and THEN buying the year subscription, but I am too angry to even look at the app again.
First time subscribing to an app
by AnonomousName on 2018/11/29 04:40
Never before have I found a game that was both fun and trivial to play that actually intrigued me so much as this one. So many different games to play in this that are so fun I will end up playing a single mini game more than once for up to a half hour. I haven’t even gotten through all the games and I’ve been playing the game for a week. I love how it measures your progress and will become more advanced the more you play. Never before have I ever paid for an app, but I found the games to be very much worth it and you have access to so much more when you do. I really hate monthly subscriptions so I may cancel because of it, but I would definitely purchase the game if it had a fixed price. Super fun and addicting
Pro, buy pro, you can’t do anything if you buy pro!
by Donald J. Trump Official on 2019/06/06 02:03
I originally bought this app if off of an ad, thinking that it would be all fun puzzle games. Wrong. So very, very wrong. It began its tutorial, I thought it was simple enough. The app looked cool with all of it’s neat little buttons of games. After I finished my daily workout, I wanted to play more puzzle games, but all that kept happening was “Buy pro to unlock these features”. I was frustrated, as I don’t want to spend money on video games. So I just decided to play my daily puzzles again. “Buy pro for infinite replays” it read when I clicked the daily puzzles. Anyway, I get that there needs to be some way to earn money and I think pro is a pretty good way of doing that, but this is straight up annoying! The puzzles in total take about 7:00 minutes. So, this app is useful 7:00 minutes of the day. That is a complete and total waste of space, I deleted this awful crap. It should be renamed the “app of frustration” that would suit it better. This app would be really cool, and I like how things a laid out, but they had to ruin it with their stupid pro membership. Conclusion: You should download this app if you identify with the following: A. You hate your phone B. You’re pranking your friend by downloading this app on their phone C. You like wasting storage D. You’re willing to waste money on a pro membership E. You’re setting a world record for “most amount of apps on a phone” Other that that, don’t buy it!
Love it- yet HATE THE ISSUES
by HskyGal on 2018/10/05 18:11
pro user. After spending a good bit of money I got pro. And while I LOVE IT I hate the issues with certain games. Jump- I don’t know if it’s an iPhone sensitivities thing... but I can’t get it to work at all. even my partner tried. He can’t do it either. I end up with a 0 score. And as you only have two games for coordination, when one doesn’t work, you only have one other to play so my overall coordination score is very low. Certain memory ones don’t work correctly as well.. spin cycle. 4 yellow blocks rotating clockwise “ the color has changed” - false.. and it marks it as incorrect!! I get that it’s a learning brain teaser game, but when it doesn’t work correctly it can be extremely frustrating. I would love to keep using this app, and even renew my pro subscription again next year. But with out addressing the bugs and problems. I feel like you can only play certain games- and therefore only reach a certain level of achievement.
Inconsistent.
by ooooooooooooooof on 2018/06/04 23:05
The games are great but if you don't have pro, there is a debate, between the app and itself, over whether you can watch a video to replay games/ unlock new games or not. I honestly have no idea what's happening and if the games weren't so good, I would have deleted this app in a heartbeat. I download the app and it says 1 play per day and shoves messages asking for a subscription in my face anytime I click on something. I wake up the next day to forced tutorials on how I can click on a game to get an ad- basically giving me the ability to play what I want, however many times I want in a day as long as I watch the ads. At night, the same day, I try to go back in and play only to find the subscription messages everywhere once again. It's inconvenient, inconsistent, and annoying. There is nothing to explain why it changes like that and tbh if there was I would probably be a little less mad because at least it would make it less confusing.
Peak Performance Awaits...
by AppDeeDee on 2017/11/30 20:52
Been practicing for over a week now with a one year subscription. Peak is fun, addictive while delivering a perfect brain wake up call each morning. Peak balances challenge with delightful interface in most games (e.g. compared to the ‘heaviness’ of Luminosity’s game design). I am feeling I can keep going until perfecting on all games as it feels like play time than exam time even though I check score each time... Compared to other brain game apps I used in the past or currently use, Peak keeps a fresh edge, in its relatively large and diverse selection of games under each section, well targeted to specific brain training dimensions. I like the variety also certain twist on some games common to apps in this category. One drawback I have so far, & thus a deduction of 1 Star, is the rather limited selection under ‘Coordination’ & ‘Emotion’, each with merely 2 or 3 games total right now. That’s just not enough games to either measure user’s performance properly or help user improve on those skills over time. I would say 5-8 games at least to be taken seriously. Or those tiers would also get repetitive than engaging very quickly. Though I appreciate there is an ‘Emotion’ section to start with. Hope there will be improvement for the above from developer in coming weeks.
Great game, but can be annoying
by Brony6000 on 2018/04/21 03:02
This app can challenge your brain in certain areas with multiple games and shows your progress. However, most of what it does is just make you better at those specific games. It doesn’t create new skills that will help you irl. In addition, Peak is too pushy when it comes to upgrading to Pro. It selects six games for you to play but it won’t let you play the last two until you upgrade. So annoying. Anytime I want to play a game I like I have to watch a video or “upGraDe tO pRo”. There are also games and exercises that you can’t even access until you get Pro. I can’t do this exercise specialized for me because I haven’t upgraded? I can’t look at my progress from more than a month ago? I can’t play this game without a subscription? I understand some limitations but y’all advertise the “pro” version to the point where I’m not interested.
Disappointed
by Amazonhunteress on 2018/04/06 12:29
So I love the games and it’s wonderful to see your progress. So naturally I thought it would be great if me and my sister would compete against my competitive mom who has started to show signs of Dementia. To help improve her memory. I’ve paid for pro, but I can’t add my sister to my account: it keeps saying “the email address is not a valid account, etc.” is it because she signed up under Facebook? No response from the Peak Team when I emailed them. I’ve seen her play under her account with the same email address. Then I read about linking with Facebook to compete against your friends, my friends sections of my “stats” continues to have the little brain there saying it’s lonely after I’ve linked my account with Facebook. I also hate the fact that the family plan doesn’t have a way to compete against your family members. Needless to say I have to look for another “ improve your brain app” to help my mom and get my money back.
👍
by Massage1$ on 2019/09/21 01:18
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?
Apparently they don’t care
by ParadoxJan on 2019/02/28 22:27
February 2019 update - I’m removing another star because they still haven’t fixed the problem - you watch an ad in order to play a game, but about 50% of the time, after the ad you see a black screen, but no game. This happens repeatedly, and they’ve had sufficient time to fix it, so apparently they don’t care. Update to review below - I took off a star from my rating because at different times today I have tried watching an ad to be able to play a game and every time, I watched the full ad, but then got the blank black screen and no game. I hope this gets fixed, or I’m going to delete this app. _________ After you play the 4 free games you get each day, you are supposed to be able to play more if you are willing to watch an ad before each one. But sometimes I watch the ad, but afterwards just get a frozen black screen instead of a game to play. Recently this has been happening more frequently, to the point that now it’s happening 25-30% of the time. That’s aggravating. I think the games do promote mental agility, and several are somewhat entertaining, but for the most part, they aren’t what I consider fun. There are a couple little details that I find annoying. One is that the game “Word Fresh” will not accept the word “zen.” Another is that I can’t differentiate between the numbers 5 and 6 in the game “Pixel Logic” due to the font they used.
Nice but...
by LaurenEmmaOhYeah on 2018/05/12 17:45
This app really is great, I’m positive that a lot of people love it. This might sound ridiculous but I will be completely honest with all of u. I know that PEAK needs to make money, but they give u so many less games than members so I don’t use peak on my free time. I thought this would be a super great app but it’s not. I only use it for brain workouts and I’m not a member but u know what? I bet that members get to play the games on their free time cause they have more games, and not just for workouts. Duh! That’s how not fair it is!!! 👿 I’m not paying about two dollars a month for a darn app that doesn’t have to have u pay. I will certainly be looking for better apps that don’t require a stupid membership that I can actually play on my free time. Not fair. 🤯🤯😡😡😤😤👿👿
Super enjoyable and valuable! Even if you don’t upgrade!
by BellaPrincesa322 on 2019/02/14 12:06
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.
Not as fun without pro
by Alayna ML on 2019/05/22 04:18
While this is a fun app and I enjoy the games I do get, I do not pay or have the pro version. So I what I get is 4 free games a day (called my daily workout) that they choose for me. If I want to play any other game I have to watch an ad. This is not to bad but many of the games shown in the advertising for this app are not included unless you get pro. You can’t even watch ads to get them. Also often I will watch an ad to play a game and it will freeze up on me and not let me play the game. The screen just turns black and stays there. I knows it’s not my internet because it works for everything else and my phone is typically pretty fast. So I don’t know. It’s a good app but it doesn’t have all you probably think it has from the advertisements. It’s pretty limited but besides that it’s pretty fun and helpful. I like the skill analysis!
Some puzzles are compromised by physical hinderance
by BladeRunner9 on 2018/12/09 04:14
Or technical issues. For instance, the game where the elephant jumps across the river. I know exactly what I need to do, problem is the controls are very poor and glitchy. The elephant never goes where I point/swipe it to, therefore I score poorly even though it wasn’t my fault. Or other games that require your finger move an item on the touch screen... my fingers are not always dry and smooth, sometimes my finger may be sweaty and moist which makes it difficult to “glide” on the touchscreen. Therefore it compromises my ability to play the game even though it has nothing to do with intelligence, but rather physical issues. So again, I’ll score poorly even though it wasn’t my fault. These are only a few issues but they are big issues that should be fixed in an otherwise fun brain game.
Redundant Purchase
by Nelci V on 2019/06/08 19:05
I bought the Peak Pro subscription last year June 18, 2018 and I have never been more disappointed. The games within the app are pretty fun don’t get me wrong, the issue stems from the fact that once updated (user interface), the purchase became obsolete. I have not been able to play the game for a whole year essentially. I used to love to play this to challenge myself but they limited my playtime as soon as they updated the UI of the app. Sure the UI looked more sophisticated but it did not allow me to use the subscription again after that. I would want to purchase again but it’s pretty pointless if another update (system optimization,UI, more games) if I can’t even access the benefits of my subscription. If there is anyway to reimburse me in a way I could experience the glory once more then i would give this another chance after a thorough play through, if not then I don’t recommend this to any of my peers, colleagues and friends.
Fun but not worth it at all. Deleting.
by Lauren Kopf on 2018/03/23 03:57
1. Some of the games are fun to play. But some days I get on to play the games and it says I already have for the day. Which isn’t true, I set a reminder to play at 10:30pm (just good for my schedule. I’m usually just home from work and it’s nice to have something fun to do) and usually I can. But some nights, like tonight, I get on to play and it just won’t let me. It says I’ve already completed my workout for the day and if I want to play more I have to pay. 2. The only reason they have anything at all free on here is so they can put it on the App Store for “free”. I have no problem with free apps with in-app purchases until you’re ONLY listing it as free so people will download it, and then you charge a whopping $30+ for some minigames that I’ve been able to find free with other apps. 3. The few games that you CAN play without shelling out money (that you’ll regret spending) aren’t even full games. It literally says “play the full game with Pro”. At one point it said something about letting me play a game so I can “get a taste of Pro”. 4. Lastly, $35 a year doesn’t sound like much, but when you’re spending $35 on an app in general, that’s a lot of money. Let alone spending that much on a single app multiple times. A one time purchase of $10-$12 MAX is more worth it for this.

Great app
by 2JJ1 on 2019/11/12 10:45
No other free app even compares
There’s no way to contact peak - so I’ll leave this here...
by Haaatt on 2019/11/12 00:10
In the zen word fresh, the tips say that you can have up to 3 multipliers on the board at a time, but I can’t seem to make that happen? There is nothing in the how to play that explains it... not sure if it’s an error.
This game is a really good game.
by 🦴💀🦴 🔪🛡 on 2019/11/11 23:42
It has a lot of educational and also fun games.
It’s ok.
by Añia11:11 on 2019/11/10 18:41
I really enjoy these mind games. But it’s a bit annoying that you are t able to play all of them. Idk I guess I am not patient. Still it’s something to do.
Feeling it
by Ccccc lil c on 2019/11/08 23:42
I can feel my brain working and it brings back times of school when I would actually use my brain
Fun but unstable
by Gonink Design on 2019/11/08 11:56
I honestly favor this app over some of their competitors because of the nature of games. They’re more engaging and fun to play. BUT, the free version crashes constantly. In a single workout I might have to close and restart the app 3 times during 5 games. Makes me nervous to even consider the paid version.
Great App
by Mussytime missy on 2019/11/08 00:41
Love this app. It gives you great information about your abilities and keeps you wanting more.
Not for us...
by beattheprogress on 2019/11/08 00:23
What I mean is why do I have to pay $5 to learn the memory palace when it’s used all of the world. I can learn it from YouTube better and how I should apply it from real people. I suggest having real people to connect with without added charges as part of pro version. Second, physical application is critical for memory so the course should include this. That is how any business lasts, when the people are priority. The app is addictive which tells me it was designed to be that way and that way is not for the betterment of the people. Chow
Another app that requires a subscription
by ha Anzy on 2019/11/07 16:04
Don’t download, it requires money
Lazy
by MellVR on 2019/11/07 00:44
Another company too lazy to do a landscape version for larger iPad users
I liked it. Bought the Pro version. Now I love it.
by Ryanxj9000 on 2019/11/06 21:29
Great app. 100% worth my money. Wait for the discount though which they will definitely alert you of. I bought the lifetime acess for 40% off. Good deal. I plan on ising this regularly. Inused to have a Lumosity subscription. But this is way better. It is easier to use on my phone and it is way less expensive. I love that it links to research papers in some of the advanced courses, two of which I bought on improving memory. I also like that it tells you who created some of the games and from what research the game was developed from. Great job, guys. Great app. A guilt-free fun gaming app.
Very nice support
by Siavash yarahmadi on 2019/11/06 15:14
Had problem with premium , contacted the support , fixed it in less than half a day
No

I don’t want to create an account I wanted to play the games. Forcing me to make an account to use the app is unacceptable.
Progress change
by Gbocc on 2019/11/05 04:27
It's amazing and, frankly, motivating to see what a year off from playing Peak is like. My scores are so much lower without practicing or exercising my brain with these science-backed games, and I'm less stressed now than when I was playing regularly with my Pro subscription! On a nine-day streak and working to get those scores back up to par. I've been recommending* it to my senior clients so they can improve their memory skills, as well. ** Would be nice for iOS users to have a free week of pro for each recommendation who buys pro like Android, at least used to, get as a reward. Not sure if this is perk exists?
Don’t waste your time
by Iburnvx on 2019/11/05 00:52
You must purchase for $35 no thanks. Not much of a free version. I wasted time downloading this app. But the three games I got to play seemed nice lol. But at $35 lol no thanks!
Consideration
by Kolleartist on 2019/11/04 13:27
It’s a pleasant game for the most part yet I notice a few times it records an event with an error when quite clearly the person was smiling, another fill their funnel thing but when it’s time for them to fill yours where are they going to be?
Great

Astounding
by george61k on 2019/11/03 16:08
I will admit that this brain game exercise truly enhanced my performance;although, I’m becoming quite annoyed 0f the same exercises every day. There will need to be more of a variation to it.
Seriously? 🤬
by Wow 😳 good 🦄🦄🦄🦄 on 2019/11/03 13:46
So the app said it was 4+. But in game, you have to be 13!!! Plus, without Pro, you can only do games once a day!! I’m 10! I don’t have the money to subscribe! Why can’t you make it cheaper and NOT LIE!!
Scam
by ihavebeebkidnapped on 2019/11/03 13:07
This app is trying to get you to buy their premium version of the app. The overall brain score it gives you for is really low on purpose. You could be in the top 95% in every game, but your overall score will only be around 300. The only way to make this score higher is by playing the games more times so you improve at that game. That’s where the problem occurs. If you pay for their premium membership, you have unlimited access to all the games and can play them until you master them. This app isn’t making you smarter, it’s making you better at pointless mini games and puzzles, but telling you it’s improving several vague categories of brain activity.
Love this app but please fix
by Newbr on 2019/11/03 02:45
I’m using the free version of this app and do the daily workout as faithfully as possible. But for some reason the last 2 days it keeps freezing up when an advertisement comes on after a workout and I have to close out of the app and clear it to get back on it. Please fix this issue.
99th percentile!
by Kaner1781 on 2019/11/02 19:34
This app is amazing. I am now ranking in the 99th percentile for overall ability and haven’t even paid for any of the Pro game options. “Grow”, “Object Find”, and the dreaded “Pixel Logic” (thinks that’s the name) are the 3 I struggle with the most. My peak score is only between 300-550 on those. My overall Peak score is now up to 780. Numerous single games I have a rank north of 900. I may yet still pay for the Pro games to continue challenging myself and become the greatest of all time! Ha 💯😜
Improvement

Peak not working for me

I have reloaded this game twice now, and it keeps freezing after I get through one game. Won’t move on for hours. So frustrating. Why would I pay for the upgrade?
Problems
by dhazel57 on 2019/11/01 15:06
I have had this app for a-least two years. I got new iPad 6. Now after the first ad the game is frozen and cannot play. I have tried downloading game same response. Going to a different app. Love the game but cannot play.
Multiple devices?

by AzDesertSun on 2019/10/31 03:31
Many (most) games challenging & interest grabbing. Great effort on creation & mix of them. Too many advertisements though & used to be more seamless experience.
Challenging games
by D007B on 2019/10/31 01:52
I like this game, but they have started adding more commercial videos in between games. Otherwise it’s fun to try to keep improving your own scores.
Great for mind exercise, but one specific game is messed up
by Production6 on 2019/10/30 11:56
I really really love this app and would give it a 5 but the answers on spin cycle don’t always get marked correctly, it’s jacking up my score! I’d love for that to be corrected, outside of that I love all the other brain exercise games, even the hard ones
Love app...need new games
by Saegrrl on 2019/10/29 18:59
I really enjoy this app so I paid for the premium version. It has helped me in many ways, but the coordination section needs better selection of games.

Love Peak
by MsDee77 on 2019/10/29 02:19
I love playing these games! Of course I have my most favs, as well as my least favs. They’re all challenging. Language games are always high on my list of most favs. Problem Solving is not my strong suit, but exercising my brain is what’s important. Also love pushing myself to reach the highest levels. It seems after you reach “Legend”, you’re just playing for fun. Levels beyond “Legend” should be created as incentive to keep it challenging and interesting.

No warning!!!

They offer free trial, for one week. Then bam! No warning that hey we’ll charge you for one year, because you already stopped playing and forgot you signed in for this trial!!! And the best, it’s so difficult to get a refund, as you have to talk to apple itunes. I MISSED GOOGLE play store already....

Really good App
Peak used to be fun. Not any more!
by Former Fannnnn on 2019/10/28 19:45
Now there are so many ads, it’s aggravating to play. If you want to restart a game, replay or even between games, there are tooooo many ads. I would not recommend it. I’ll probably close my app once I find something else.
Fun, challenging, and good interface
by ginasatchmo on 2019/10/28 15:56
Good games that are challenging and entertaining. I appreciate how the system tracks progress and think the cost for the game is worth it. Especially if you wait until they are running a special. Better than Lumosity in my opinion.
Great app!
by lillian6224 on 2019/10/28 12:50
I highly suggest this app! It's fun and good for your brain!
Going down hill
by Joyceblessed on 2019/10/27 14:43
Some games really have no point, some don’t give you what you need to play it, most don’t give you time to do it. The game with the red, yellow and blue balls that you collect and hit the character of the same color, well most of the time you don’t get the color balls you need or there is no character to destroy. You keep scrolling left and right and there is nothing to do. Then the time is up! The ads are very annoying after each game, which didn’t used to be. I subscribed for one year and it was a waste of my money. So I unsubscribed and I get more adds now than I did before. On a weekly basis on the daily workout I play the same games and there are so many you can rotate but you don’t. I am on the verge of deleting this app and finding another brain app.
Great, just have a small but really annoying bug
by Premium force on 2019/10/26 21:38
Great all around app for improving cognitive ability. Although whenever I finish a game it always shows a blank white screen that I cannot get rid of unless I close app. Presumably, this is only with the free version because it’s always after I close an ad. Please get someone to fix this thank you.
Awesome!!! BUT...
by Lovekamp22 on 2019/10/26 15:13
I LOVE this app!!! Dare I say ... better than Lumosity... more options ... more games...better stats/ analysis — especially if you go Pro!!! HOWEVER: As a math teacher ... I found an error in one of your Moving Math problems... 2+ (____ x 5 ) = 19 There is NO WAY to get 19 given the numbers 1-9 and the operations you give us...I missed one bc it could not be done!! I paused the game and even showed the rest of my family...thinking I misread a number...
5min Worth of play!!

Versatile and dynamic Emotional intelligence
by SirJeeOhhh on 2019/10/25 21:09
Honestly I never do reviews. But it is hard to find a good “brain” app. What I look for is dynamics and versatility and most Importantly one that has emotional intelligence. Which I have yet to come across until now. I LOVE it. The best thing ever and highly recommend it BecuAse versatility and a dynamic program is key to use all areas of the brain. To use it and not lose it!!! <3
Great but
by natgparker on 2019/10/25 16:39

I like this app a lot. I like the challenges and different skill levels. The only thing I don’t care for is how often it freezes after completing an exercise. Why does this keep happening. Doesn’t make sense to me. I have to force to close the app. Restart it. Then go back to where I was. Please fix this.
Good App, but FB dependent
by Allen L. on 2019/10/24 16:28
I love the games, and the streak tracker does an okay job at keeping me consistent in my workouts. That said, I bought this app as a mental workout for my family, but soon discovered that I can only compare to FB friends. My family is on the same family plan, but several of them don’t use FB because it’s pretty bad for anxiety. That means I can’t track my progress against them in this game. As a friendly competitor, that removes a good deal of motivation for me.
Good app but scoring makes no sense
by Kcdee71 on 2019/10/24 15:18
I’ve been playing this game for a while and am a tester for it. I like the variety of games but it is frustrating to do really well and have no change to overall score and then do slightly less well and overall score goes down. The algorithms seem very skewed towards negative performance. There are quite a few glitches also which have been around for a long time with no fix. Overall I enjoy it but wish these things would get addressed.
Watch video to replay doesn’t work!

by ToyKer on 2019/10/24 11:17
I do look forward to playing it everyday. I like the variety of games, the graphics, and sound effects. It's cool! The only thing I would want is for them to have grace period for the streak. Since it’a a paid app, that would be nice.

Super Buggy for a 39.99 app
by hdalmwhxuv on 2019/10/24 01:07
Trial version is fine, but the app freezes and glitches too much for any investment. Some of the games were helpful, most did not sustain an activity long enough to notice any kind of improvement. “Leveling” also happens way too fast in some of the harder focus and coordination games, to the point where you can’t ever get better because you did very well by chance one time. Some of the games were too glitched to even use, (the jump game is trash) or you’d make it all the way through and the app would freeze. Not worth $4 let alone $40.
Could be better
by Saraa3 on 2019/10/23 21:51
There are so many ads at this point that it ruins the entire app. Not only are so many ads annoying, i end up having to restart the app frequently because the ads will freeze. This app used to be a lot better. It’s gone way downhill.
Mostly Good
by Laur5 on 2019/10/23 21:08
When I bought Peak I paid for a lifetime subscription. I love the games although I’d like more options for coordination. I find them a good balance of fun and challenging. One thing that continues to bother me however is that there is no way to add just one more person. It’s a little ridiculous to require a $99 payment to let my kid play on their own profile. I didn’t pay even close to that much for a lifetime of peak playing. I absolutely believe in paying people for their creative and inventive work and I enjoy the game but there should absolutely be an affordable option to add just one profile not 5!

Great app, lots of fun, the games are increasingly challenging, definitely a great download! It’s a bit expensive, but as I was informed by the developer, they are continuously updating every aspect of the service so the prices do make a bit more sense than not. Great way to start the day, get that brain juice a’flowin!

Great app
by catwoman153 on 2019/10/21 18:02
I have been using this for a few years and I really do feel like there’s a noticeable improvement in the six areas it’s meant to improve. My only complaint is that there are some games I absolutely hate, not because they’re harder than other games in the same category, just because I simply don’t enjoy playing them. There’s no way to completely exclude these games from the daily workout, which I think would be a nice feature. I do see that this may be difficult to execute since some categories have only a few games while others have several games, but I still think it would be a nice option.

A great app. Worth buying pro.
by Oddlit on 2019/10/15 04:02
I love this app. I haven’t played as regularly as I should, but so far it’s been great. It definitely helps you figure out your strengths and weaknesses so you can work on them; but it doesn’t have a lot of focus on your weaknesses. It would be nice if the excercises catered to those. That said, if you buy pro you can practice what you want when you want. Also, there doesn’t seem to be any ads, which is nice.

The constant adds in this app are hurrendous . Detracts from what should be a great app and complete turn off from actually purchasing. B-league and and behind the curve, apps did this years ago. Lumosity is better simply for this reason.
Great Brain Tease!
by Honey 2 on 2019/10/12 12:38
A great set of Brain Games! Constantly evolving to offer new challenges. I like that you can track your progress , the different levels and the individual challenges as well. I wish the instruction for some of the challenges were a bit clearer, but after a play or two you figure it out
Don’t waste your time
by alicesmommy1995 on 2019/10/12 02:47
Sounded fun until after the “assessment”. They let you play a few short games and you can’t even replay them because they forgot to mention it’s a $40 annual subscription to go “PRO”. So dumb. You can’t really use this app unless you are ready to drop hard cash after the 7 day free trial.

I have been training with Peak since 2015! I am still training and I cannot live without it! I have noticed a big difference in my daily life. This training really does make a difference in the way our brains perform when it’s done daily. I noticed my brain agility is amazing! I think quicker and have been able to focus much better. I hope the makers continue to add more challenges and workout because I cannot get enough of them! You will not regret getting this gem of an app!

Best App I’ve Spent Money On
by RandaRenee on 2018/10/05 21:53
I’m one of those child prodigy genius turned horribly depressed adults, wondering why my brain quit working like it used to. I’ve been training for a couple months now, with my highest streak being 41. I can actually feel myself getting better and better. My memory in everyday life is better, I can focus on my tasks much easier, I’ve started having a MUCH easier time relating to others, and my once horrendous problem solving skills are through the roof. I can tell in everyday life as I come to better solutions much faster than I normally would have. I only have two scores below 400 now (total score above 500) and I’m so very proud of myself. Looking at the progress I’ve made is astonishing. The brain is a muscle like any other. If you want it to be fit, you must train like you do with the rest of your body. I’ve done brain games in the past but lost momentum because the games were just not that fun and it was the same game every day. With Peak, there’s so many different options to chose from and you never really get bored. I do have a few games I dislike playing because I’m not good at them, but it’s easy to remind myself why that means they’re the most important to do. I HIGHLY recommend this app to anyone struggling. My depression and anxiety have gotten much more manageable as well, but I’ve been putting in my own separate work for that on top of the training.
Thank you Peak!
by yoginidevi on 2019/02/27 15:33
Wow... I’m so glad I found this app. I was in a bad car accident a year and a half ago and my brain got seriously smashed up. As a result my memory (mostly short term) and math skills disappeared. I’ve been using Peak for about 2 months and I see significant changes in my memory abilities. Just a few weeks ago I was still telling any new person I talked to that I might lose my train of thought and I always felt self-conscious about my memory skills because it was so apparent when you spoke with me that they still hadn’t recovered. And just yesterday I realized that I haven’t had to excuse my poor memory to anyone lately, and in fact I go days where I don’t remember it’s an issue (not because my memory is bad but because it’s no longer such a problem!). And because of this app I actually learned that my math skills disappeared. I always just thought my mind was being lazy but when I saw it first hand how hard it was for me to do simple math on this app I saw the problem. It was really troubling and embarrassing when I realized - I used to be good at math - but I’ve been slowly getting better. So essentially this app has been my brain rehab! And I couldn’t be more happy about my progress! Thank you!!!
Irritated
by LanceLance on 2018/04/29 11:09
I’m not going to lie, the game is super fun to tease your brain and allows you to do something actually more productive than scrolling fake news. But the customer service is a little crooked, I subscribed for a monthly subscription then I got this error saying only one Peak account can be associated with one Apple ID/ credit card method, well I did subscribe for a different account before so it makes sense (though it bugs me a little that they should have warned the customer before they charged them and alerted only afterwards) I logged in the other account to check and the Pro version wasn’t there either so I had to contact them. In the response they said they hung both accounts in idle because they didn’t know which one to officially put into the system, when my email came they put the Pro version into the old account (it bugs me for a second time because even though they solved my problem, they should had asked me which account I would like to make as a primary). I want the new account to be my primary so I ask them maybe, just maybe if they can change it, I would totally understand if they cannot, I just want an answer. Now I’m really irritated that my email went unanswered for days (the other email was answered within hours, so they possibly had to have read this one too). I did not demand to have my account changed. I just ask if they could do it, why do they have to avoid giving an answer?
Games are fun, but difficult to determine if worth paying for pro
by sae-wat on 2019/02/08 20:59
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.
MIND BLOWING!!!!!
by Ray M. Cruz on 2018/01/06 19:22
I think what really pushes people away from this app is the subscription which do very depending if there’s a sell going on. I upgraded to pro and am now paying 1.37 a month and don’t mind that price. There are issues here and there (LIKE EVERY APP) because nothing in this world is perfect. But I gotta give it to the developers. These games work. You’re giving your brain a daily workout which will help you throughout your day and your future. I think it’s worth the monthly subscription for me. Because I can’t remember the last time my brain got a workout like this. And you instantly feel the difference after playing and that’s MIND BLOWING! I feel if people give the game a chance, pay for the subscription, if it’s worth it for you (If money does play a roll I would wait for some sell), keep writing reviews to help the developer fix the few issues the app DOES HAVE, maybe the developer will listen to the fan base and make the right improvements and the app will become even better than it already is. All I’m saying is that the Human brain is a STATE OF THE ART WEAPON. Why not keep it sharp and active in all areas. Help the app grow. I know I will.
I Highly Recommend this App
by Chris1234567891011121314151 on 2018/05/18 12:51
I downloaded this app in the hopes it would not be like seemingly most apps now where you have to pay to do anything. Luckily with peak that isn’t true. Without paying anything you can play about 10 maybe 15 different mind games in your daily workout. I never spend money on mobile apps, but I love peak so much I bought a subscription to Pro for 1 year and with it I can play way more games, and any of them whenever I wish as much as I wish. Peak aesthetically is amazing everything is sleek and clean, and easy to understand. The games all have tutorial vids which are only about 10-15 seconds that are option each time you play so if you forget, Peak has you covered. If there is one thing I would change, it’s that It seems that you can’t have more than one workout active at a time without messing up the tracking. If I complete a game it tries to check it off for the other workout. Honestly it’s not really a big deal, I just want the satisfaction of the checks marks when I use more than one workout.
This isn’t what it says it is
by Tridecaphi on 2019/09/14 12:48
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).
amazing but few problems
by UniKittie 🦄 on 2019/02/25 04:24
This app is honestly amazing! I mean, with all it’s games, it’s a great app. But, there are a few problems. To begin with, whenever I want to play one of the games, but I have to watch an ad to play it, I watch the ad, but then everything glitches out! For example, I can’t click on anything and nothing would work, so I have to refresh the app, which is quite annoying because I wasted my time watching an ad to get no reward. And yes, this happened multiple times, each time I tried to watch something to play a game. However, it works on the daily workout section, but other than that, it glitches out on the other sections. To add on, why do we have to be a member to look at our stats. Yes, we can look at how we increased or decreased in the last month or week, but to look it our stats for 3 months, 6 months, and a life time? I don’t think it’s necessary for us to be a member to look at our progress. I get that we have to be a member to get better games for our brain, but just for our stats? It makes no sense to me to be honest. This is an overall great app with a few problems.
Games are so addicting good for you!
by Jackie swan on 2017/12/24 06:08
It's important to exercise your brain in many different ways! I can tell the days I don't do my workouts before work. When I don't, It's seems like I'm not as focused or awake and tend be more groggy. Also, (as embarrassing as it is) I've always struggled with words due to my dyslexia, and this has helped me get over the "pressures" of finding/spelling words. Turns out I'm actually quite good at them (better than my husband and it drives him crazy!) I guess I've lived my whole life telling myself I'm not good with words, so I wasn't. But now Peak helped me see that's not entirely true. Some/most games are so much fun too! To spend one on one interactive time together, my husband and I will pull out my phone and take turns playing games to challenge each other. I only wish we could select a "guest" button when he is playing so he doesn't effect my mental progression charts. I only bought into it because I got it on cyber Monday for $.99 a month. Worth the $.99 but I would never have signed up for $3!
Great app. False progress.
by orionc123 on 2019/06/30 04:04
This app is great for training your brain, and improving your overall mental health. I have one complaint though: the progress you see is not entirely accurate. The score you receive is entirely based on the level of difficulty you’re playing at, and you don’t unlock the more difficult levels without having to grind out the beginner stuff. Some of the games at beginner & novice are a cake walk. It’s easy to perform perfectly, but scoring perfectly on a beginner or novice puzzle will sometimes give you a peak score of less than 400. As you unlock the harder levels, you’re able to score higher because that restriction is gone. This falsifies the results a bit, so it’s not reflective of your actual progress. Don’t get me wrong; this app is extremely beneficial, and tons of fun. It could just use one fix. Developers: if you’re reading this, please remove the restriction on the higher difficulties for new users. It’s pretty boring to breeze through the easy puzzles to get scores that aren’t reflective of one’s mental ability. Not only is it misleading, it may deter new users who don’t feel like grinding out the beginner puzzles. 3/5.
enhances essential skills and VERY FUN!!
by MadelineO on 2018/08/22 02:37
Peak is probably the best app I have ever encountered in the sense that you’re phone isn’t killing your brain cells but actually strengthening them. Peak creates personalized “daily workouts” customized for your brain. These workouts consist of a variety of games that not only make your brain healthier and stronger but are also very enjoyable and fun. You can also do a series of workouts designed for you (even one with the games you need to improve on). With the Pro Package, if you don’t feel like following a guideline, you can choose any of the many games they have to do on their own. Each game is designed to build upon a certain area of your brain. For example, there are games that focus on emotion, memory, coordination, etc. Some of the games are designed specifically do encourage positivity within you. There are also a few games for relaxation or fun without a time limit or a score. I highly recommend this app if you enjoy apps that don’t kill your brain cells, but are also extremely fun.
Best app of its kind that I’ve come across
by Dotmatrix123619 on 2019/04/28 15:57
I downloaded two or three of the highest ranking brain-training apps for a week or two because I feel as though my attention span hasn’t been the best lately, and Peak is the only one that’s still on my phone. I genuinely look forward to the snappy, engaging workouts each day, and they’ve become an enjoyable part of my daily routine. What sets this app apart from competitors is that it allows non-paying users to track their progress in much more detail, by showing you % improvements in each sector each day, as well as letting you compare your brain map to different age groups. Love that! I will say though, that the type of games I receive each day is quite skewed. I NEVER get any Emotion games, and Coordination and Problem-Solving ones are also few and far in between. If this were to be fixed, I’d definitely amend this review to add another star. All in all, I’ll be recommending this to my friends and family.
I have many problems
by dabbing isabelle on 2019/08/04 14:57
This app can be a good idea but there are many flaws. I understand why the point of having ads is important to have a game and it gives you a reason to buy the premium then and also ads=money but my problem lies with the constant ads like after every game another ad! Like calm yourself I’m not going to pay $35 a year just to probably delete the app in a month anyway. Also why do I have to buy the premium to replay a game once. I understand if u want to play the same game twice so you can’t constantly spam to get a higher score. Also one day by accident I held the play button and all my games were completed for me and my score decreased by 25%. Like I this is when I got like 3 weeks into the game and my scores were fairly high so I stopped playing the game for 2 weeks because of it then I recently got back into the game and i was mostly annoyed because I knew i couldn’t get it back anymore because I needed to spam play which I can’t obviously do because I have to pay for the premium. And you may be like then just buy the premium but $35 is a lot for a person who can’t get a job. Also it’s a mobile game which they are only addicting for about a month or so and they get boring.
Standardized testing in an app
by dreamneophyte on 2019/04/09 04:10
It is set up so there is a daily quiz. There is a set time of 30 seconds or so for each question and then it just ends, so if you have a streak going it’s broken and if your struggling you’ll never figure it out. You can’t go on the app and focus on the areas and problem you struggle with you can only do the set daily quiz. It doesn’t allow you to personalize it so that you can focus on what you struggle with. It might be that you’re not bad with that area of skill but the way that question is designed like you need to color in blocks in a certain manor but they use three or four shades of the same color so because it’s all a matter of shades you take longer double checking the shades to make sure it’s marked correctly than if they would have used different colors vs shades, that makes you struggle but just like a standardized test it’s one size fits all test. The “statistics” they give you about the capability of the “average” mind in an age group is a complete lie. I’ve talked to teachers and psychologists and neurologists and they all say that nobody, absolutely nobody has a perfect balance of medium skill level in all subjects. Everyone does better in some and worse in others by comparison.
I guess everyone is a genius
by Dfladge on 2018/06/28 21:52
Well everyone in my age group is a genius according to my brain map. The main thing that bothers me with this app is the opaque way you are scored in each category. My overall percentile is 61 percent, in language I’m at 85 memory I’m at 80. But in every other category well. 99 percent of the population is better at problem solving than I am I guess. No matter how much my scores improve in these categories, the percentile never moves which is irksome to say the least. What else bothers me? I absolutely hate the vibration when I get an incorrect answer, it totally throws me off track. I also despise a few games, happy river, is just really stupid and jump control could easily cause carpal tunnel syndrome. Despite these grievances, all in all, it seems to be a more productive distraction than say, candy crush, and some games are really enjoyable. Pixel logic is my absolute favorite. I’m still uncertain as to whether ones mental faculties are actually expanded by playing these games. I’m fairly certain the juries still out on that one.
Some games are great, but the data is thoroughly diluted
by Gabriel Moss on 2017/12/05 00:57
To put it simply: the best games in Peak are some of the most dynamic, brain-stretching and FUN games I’ve played in any brain trainer. Low-Pop, Pixel Logic, Tunnel Trance, Rush Back and Rush Back+ are some of my favorites. On the other hand, some of the games make little to no sense for their category and are limited by whichever hand you get with the game’s procedural generation whenever you launch. I’m talking about games like Happy River which rely thoroughly on RNG to generate a landscape where your luck can completely change the opportunities you have to score higher or lower, which have 0 business dictating the average score for something like “Emotion”. Games like Word-A-Like ask for very specific word combinations (which you’ll memorize with repetition anyhow) and yet that game affects your “Language” category. With Peak, you’re definitely giving your brain a workout, but take your recorded peak score with a grain of salt!
Lots of fun little games
by Fogfffhgcfg on 2018/01/10 04:20
This app is great for anyone who likes little games to pass the time. It’s designed to help you work on different parts of your brain development. I got the pro version on one of their discount deals which is the only way I would have payed for it. The app allows you to compare your brain map to others. The downsides are that is doesn’t explain how the brain map works. Is it better to have a larger spread map or a smaller spread. I would be interested in knowing more about the science that they use to come up with these statistics. The other down side is that the professions section of the brain mapping is very limited. I work in the mental health field and there isn’t even a broad category for my profession so I cannot compare my brain map to my colleges. Despite that the games themselves are fun and there are a lot of games which will make it less likely that I will get bored with the app. If you want to go pro then wait until there is a large discount offer. The app is quite pricey otherwise.
Gender Binary
by imfreed on 2018/01/12 16:57
This app is fun and easy to use. I have been playing for almost 20 days straight and can’t get enough. That is why it was so disappointing to see their misunderstanding of gender in the game “Word Pairs”- a game in which, in part, you have to match words with “opposite meaning.” Unfortunately they use the pair, boy/girl, as if men are the antithesis to woman. Women and men are different genders of the same species. They are not “opposite” which is defined as diametrically different. Diametrically means completely or directly. When we perpetuate the idea that men and women are “completely different” we are choosing to disregard the shared experiences and focus only on the differences. This is how we encourage prejudice, by defining a group as “other” or different than your own. Shame on Peak for engaging in such harmful behavior, especially as an app that is intended to push and develop cognitive skills. Your mission statement says: “We believe there’s always a little room for improvement, and we should strive to better ourselves bit by bit.” Please take this opportunity to update your games and better Peak.
Great app!
by Brendawg_1025 on 2019/01/13 21:46
This app is the best thing I have ever downloaded to my device! I use it every day and it really does help improve the way I think.( My grades have improved ever since I have started using this app). The only thing I I think could use improvement would be the ads you run on the app. After watching an ad so I could play an extra game for free the app froze and would not let me play the game. This was frustrating, but as this seems to be a new addition to the app I completely understand. It would be nice to fix this glitch as soon as possible so that I can continue using your awesome app! Also, if possible it would be nice if you could add to your extensive inventory of games for the free version of the app. The games on the free version get boring after a while... Overall thank you so much more making this app! I will continue using it and recommending it to everyone for as long as I live!😊
Fix the video ads on iPhone please
by Mental Static on 2019/04/17 19:49
W should start by saying I use the free version of this app. This app is alright to kind of keep on top of your mental but sometimes I do pretty poorly the first go around and I’d like to redo a game of the day. The have an option for that in the free version of you watch a video. That’s the only time I’ve seen them push ads on you besides telling you to upgrade every time you play the game. I’m fine with that. What I’m not fine with is watching the ad and not being able to exit out of the ad after it’s finished. I can’t even download the app they are advertising from the ad screen. It just gets stuck and doesn’t let you redo the mini game even if you restart :/ Other than that it’s a fun little way to fill some extra time on your hands and it’s not that addicting. Also, some of the mini game instructions can be vague. TL:DR Free version doesn’t let you redo games even after watch the ad and instructions for some games could be more clear
Enjoy the games, but not the glitches.
by dily64 on 2019/01/23 16:30
I have the free version of this app, and really enjoyed it when I first got it. Lately however, this app has developed glitches even though I’ve kept it updated. Since I have the free version, an ad will run if I want to replay a game, that’s fine. Not fine is having sat through the ad, the game never reloads and I’m left looking at a totally black screen. So, I close the app, reopen and start again. Maybe the game will load the next time, maybe it won’t. This happens too often. The most recent glitch is in a game called, ‘Word Fresh’. A word hunt game in which you slide your finger around a board of connecting letters to make a word. Each letter you touch shows up on a field above the game board so you can see the word you’re making. The glitch: the field shows the chosen letter, but the letter doesn’t ‘stick’. As soon as you move you finger from the selected letter, it disappears from the field, rendering the game useless. I still use the app, but too many problems to give it a higher rating.
Has really helped me manage symptoms of my mental illness and learning disability!
by lauburn on 2019/02/23 16:18
I have adhd, depression and generalized anxiety. Long story short I’ve been on medication for years and have decided to start to slowly ween off of them by climbing down the doses (under the supervision of a psychiatrist don’t worry) but the withdrawals from the medication have been putting me through hell. Especially after coming down 5 doses on my anti depressant I’ve experienced severe short term memory which I already had thanks to my adhd. This app has helped me tremendously! I’ve been using it for the last 2 years and I’ve seen an improvement in the way my mind operates. Of course it didn’t cure my adhd or depression lol but I do feel like these games have helped to stimulate certain weaker areas of my mind. Especially the memory and problem solving games have helped me so much! This app is worth the money!
Become Smarter AND Dumber at the Same Time
by HWMWH on 2019/01/11 11:27
So often, great APPs crumble under the weight of forcing end users to either pay to subscribe to the exclusive services or suffer the bombardment of advertisements in the form of 25 to 30 second videos. Unfortunately, with the coming of 2019, PEAK succumbed to the same pitfall. With limited time, most users will use an APP such as this on a commute by train or in the few minutes they have while downing a morning brew. There are four free games that a user can play daily, with advertisements of 25 to 30 seconds in length, this potentially takes up a minute and a half of a user’s time. When someone only has five minutes to play, well, you can do the math...the irony here with an APP, designed to expand our minds and grow our gray matter, forces users to watch mindless advertisements which do just the opposite. TL::DR PEAK would have deserved 5/5 stars if it didn’t add the advertisement videos in between some of the most beautifully designed games intended to make us all a little smarter.
Ads...ads...ads
by Mpls&SPBiker on 2019/09/07 15:24
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.
Looks great but needs a few key additions.
by Princess Crocodile on 2018/10/29 01:37
I have 4 kids and I was very attracted to this app for all the training possibilities for my kids, but they are small, and although the app is from 4+ there is no way to select a game without having to enter each one and selecting how to play, it would be great to categorize the games by age as well. Another important feature and a big reason why I’m not planning on buying until there is flexibility on this account is that there is no way to create another profile or user under the same account, even with the family plan, and for somebody with small kids is practically useless since they don’t have a separate device, let alone email address with a valid peak account. This game has great workouts, but I really think that with these changes it could be amazing for aiding in developing skills on the whole family. Hope you consider them at least! Thanks!
AMAZING😄😄😄🥳😄😄😄
by sbndsnvddbsbzjsb on 2019/05/29 23:28
I love this game! It has helped me improve on my focus and many other things. I really do like this game and I think it is great to train your brain in the summer before you go back to school so you can remember more. There is only 1 thing that I wish Peak would not do, that is make a limit on how many training games you can play a day and how many times you can play them. I wish they wouldn’t do that because I want to keep playing Peak, not only once a day but more than that, you have to pay money to get to play more training games as more than once. Other than that it’s AMAZING 😄. There is one suggestion that I would like to make and that is that you can play Peak more than once a day and that you can play a certain game over again without paying. Peak has helped me with many things. Thank you, Lily😄
Fun Concept, Broken Product and Service
by K.ay J.ay on 2019/08/27 19:25
A week ago I downloaded the Peak. I enjoyed it enough and was interested in trying out the pro trial period. So I start the two week trial and then.... nothing! It still kept on asking me to upgrade to pro even though I could see an active subscription for pro in my Apple account. So I decided to try it on my IPad to see if it was a glitch with my iPhone. Nope same thing happened. Then I tried deleted, reinstalling, canceling subscription, renewing it etc., but nothing worked. I then unwisely decided to purchase one of the add ons to see I those at least worked... and unsurprisingly, no I did not get access to the add on even though my account was charged for the product. So then I email their customer support and haven’t heard anything back from them in a week. Peak seems like a fun concept, but I don’t recommend this to anyone until they get their act and software together. There’s other “brain training” apps that I’ve had a much better experience with then with Peak at this point.
Restoring Pro problems
by Former Pro User on 2018/07/13 21:41
I decided to try upgrading to Pro so I bought the monthly subscription. I had no issues buying it, but it said that you can cancel it in settings. I didn’t really want the subscription for the next month so I tried clicking “restore purchase” assuming that it would pull up a page about restoring the purchase since it had a little arrow. Instead, it actually restored my purchase every time I clicked it. What bothers me is how when I was buying the subscription, it said to turn off the auto subscription in settings, but there was no option when I looked. Also, a while after I upgraded, I didn’t have the daily workout option. In the description of what you get when you upgrade, it says you get to unlock the last two games. Without the daily workout, I didn’t get those games unlocked. I know I could’ve just play any game I wanted while upgraded, but it was just something that I wasn’t supposed to happen.
Suddenly Set Back
by Avery Night on 2018/08/29 02:53
Peak is great and it definitely exercises my brain and keeps it sharper than it otherwise would. But I recently UPGRADED to Pro and all of my STATS went DOWN. I imagine this is because with the availability of all the other games, now there are suddenly a lot of zeros being taken into consideration from the games I have yet to play, but it was honestly incredibly DISHEARTENING when I looked at my progress and my stats had all dropped by at least 20%. All of my hard work and progress suddenly felt erased or disappeared, and though I know it's still there in my head, seeing my chart shrink in a major way is certainly not motivating, especially for someone who just shelled out the MONEY to be able to get even better. Maybe that's not something that occurred to anyone during programming, but it would be very nice if there were a DIFFERENT WAY of introducing unplayed games to the overall scores.
Great except...
by AliRose222 on 2017/10/20 07:25
So I love just about everything about this app. It's fun and I feel like I really am training my brain. However, my only complaint about this app (so far) is that it does not have enough information. For example, on the game called Grow you're supposed to create as many words as possible out of just a few letters, the bigger the better. One of my groups of letters was "mas" so immediately the biggest word I could think of was Massachusetts. Awesome for points right? No. The game kept telling me it wasn't a word, so I wasted time spelling it differently thinking I might be spelling it wrong, which caused me to get a low score. I spelled it correctly. I checked. It's frustrating because I cant replay the game (without paying) and I really do want to know my progress. This issue occurred with more than just this word. How can I learn when the game might not be as knowledgeable about certain things as I am?
LOVE
by Loveisduckes on 2019/04/24 01:00
I love this app, I’ve been playing it on and off for about a year and feel really good about my progress. It’s easy to do in the morning as a warm-up or before bed to give you a productive feel to stretch your mind. My very few concerns come from lots of experience and are very minor in comparison to how wonderful the app is. I do pay for the full access and I don’t regret it for a moment. I wish there were more emotion and coordination games in comparison to the other sections. I also really struggle with the Jump Control game as the way your fingers need to be placed is awkward and it actually hurts my arm to try to play it. It also is nearly impossible to complete the Perfect Jump reward as the game often has the ball go automatically where I have no control over and hit a bumper. Thanks for all your work on the app! It’s wonderful!
Love the game but...
by holyghostguy on 2019/05/12 05:12
I really enjoy this game and play every day. I have the pro version and read and understood what I was doing when I paid for the year. The only thing I have found that is a little irksome to me is the babble bots game. At the end of the game there is a list of words that show up that could have been made with the available letters. However, when you click on the definition look up button for the definition of a particular unknown word there is no definition available. It appears that this particular game just makes up words that are not actually words. I have a large vocabulary so am naturally inquisitive when I run across a word that I don’t know. To have nonsense words as part of this game is quite disappointing. I have also looked up these words on my own and have found no definition for them. Please update this game to make actual words. Thanks.
Worth the Time and Money
by ginnylove on 2018/04/05 15:31
Going on my second year using the paid version. I do the daily workout every day. Love the fun graphics and getting me to think in ways that I might consider outside my comfort zone. Turtle Traffic has really helped me to focus and stay calm in stressful situations. I’ve never been a video gamer of any kind. I don’t like the pressure of time limits. But I see how these games help me to think more clearly and improve my memory so I buck it up and now I actually enjoy them - especially as my scores increase on initially low-scoring games... The only game I don’t care for is Happy River. I’m sure there is some science to it but I don’t see how it improves my emotional intelligence. But that is a very minor complaint. The rest is awesome and I’m happily addicted to improving my skills in Pixel Logic when I need some down time. 😊
A complete hack
by RedHeadsRock1010 on 2018/05/06 06:31
This company obviously bought/wrote all their reviews. I thought the 1 month pro (to see if I wanted to go for a year subscription) was an awesome deal, but realized it tricked me into buying a year subscription at monthly installments - definitely not what I wanted. Tried to figure out if I could cancel immediately but nope. Once you’ve bought it you’re set. This completely ruined all pleasant feelings I had for it. I haven’t touched this awful cheat of an app since the week I bought it and figured out what happened when the payment came in. I wrote a review here with one star already and surprise surprise, it never showed up. I’ve heard about people being offered refunds (if you used the game and then suddenly tried to claim you wanted a refund after months of playing then gtf out of here) supposedly, but one was never offered for me. I enjoyed the app until it stole my money. I was planning on paying for a month to see if I liked it and THEN buying the year subscription, but I am too angry to even look at the app again.
First time subscribing to an app
by AnonomousName on 2018/11/29 04:40
Never before have I found a game that was both fun and trivial to play that actually intrigued me so much as this one. So many different games to play in this that are so fun I will end up playing a single mini game more than once for up to a half hour. I haven’t even gotten through all the games and I’ve been playing the game for a week. I love how it measures your progress and will become more advanced the more you play. Never before have I ever paid for an app, but I found the games to be very much worth it and you have access to so much more when you do. I really hate monthly subscriptions so I may cancel because of it, but I would definitely purchase the game if it had a fixed price. Super fun and addicting
Pro, buy pro, you can’t do anything if you buy pro!
by Donald J. Trump Official on 2019/06/06 02:03
I originally bought this app if off of an ad, thinking that it would be all fun puzzle games. Wrong. So very, very wrong. It began its tutorial, I thought it was simple enough. The app looked cool with all of it’s neat little buttons of games. After I finished my daily workout, I wanted to play more puzzle games, but all that kept happening was “Buy pro to unlock these features”. I was frustrated, as I don’t want to spend money on video games. So I just decided to play my daily puzzles again. “Buy pro for infinite replays” it read when I clicked the daily puzzles. Anyway, I get that there needs to be some way to earn money and I think pro is a pretty good way of doing that, but this is straight up annoying! The puzzles in total take about 7:00 minutes. So, this app is useful 7:00 minutes of the day. That is a complete and total waste of space, I deleted this awful crap. It should be renamed the “app of frustration” that would suit it better. This app would be really cool, and I like how things a laid out, but they had to ruin it with their stupid pro membership. Conclusion: You should download this app if you identify with the following: A. You hate your phone B. You’re pranking your friend by downloading this app on their phone C. You like wasting storage D. You’re willing to waste money on a pro membership E. You’re setting a world record for “most amount of apps on a phone” Other that that, don’t buy it!
Love it- yet HATE THE ISSUES
by HskyGal on 2018/10/05 18:11
pro user. After spending a good bit of money I got pro. And while I LOVE IT I hate the issues with certain games. Jump- I don’t know if it’s an iPhone sensitivities thing... but I can’t get it to work at all. even my partner tried. He can’t do it either. I end up with a 0 score. And as you only have two games for coordination, when one doesn’t work, you only have one other to play so my overall coordination score is very low. Certain memory ones don’t work correctly as well.. spin cycle. 4 yellow blocks rotating clockwise “ the color has changed” - false.. and it marks it as incorrect!! I get that it’s a learning brain teaser game, but when it doesn’t work correctly it can be extremely frustrating. I would love to keep using this app, and even renew my pro subscription again next year. But with out addressing the bugs and problems. I feel like you can only play certain games- and therefore only reach a certain level of achievement.
Inconsistent.
by ooooooooooooooof on 2018/06/04 23:05
The games are great but if you don't have pro, there is a debate, between the app and itself, over whether you can watch a video to replay games/ unlock new games or not. I honestly have no idea what's happening and if the games weren't so good, I would have deleted this app in a heartbeat. I download the app and it says 1 play per day and shoves messages asking for a subscription in my face anytime I click on something. I wake up the next day to forced tutorials on how I can click on a game to get an ad- basically giving me the ability to play what I want, however many times I want in a day as long as I watch the ads. At night, the same day, I try to go back in and play only to find the subscription messages everywhere once again. It's inconvenient, inconsistent, and annoying. There is nothing to explain why it changes like that and tbh if there was I would probably be a little less mad because at least it would make it less confusing.
Peak Performance Awaits...
by AppDeeDee on 2017/11/30 20:52
Been practicing for over a week now with a one year subscription. Peak is fun, addictive while delivering a perfect brain wake up call each morning. Peak balances challenge with delightful interface in most games (e.g. compared to the ‘heaviness’ of Luminosity’s game design). I am feeling I can keep going until perfecting on all games as it feels like play time than exam time even though I check score each time... Compared to other brain game apps I used in the past or currently use, Peak keeps a fresh edge, in its relatively large and diverse selection of games under each section, well targeted to specific brain training dimensions. I like the variety also certain twist on some games common to apps in this category. One drawback I have so far, & thus a deduction of 1 Star, is the rather limited selection under ‘Coordination’ & ‘Emotion’, each with merely 2 or 3 games total right now. That’s just not enough games to either measure user’s performance properly or help user improve on those skills over time. I would say 5-8 games at least to be taken seriously. Or those tiers would also get repetitive than engaging very quickly. Though I appreciate there is an ‘Emotion’ section to start with. Hope there will be improvement for the above from developer in coming weeks.
Great game, but can be annoying
by Brony6000 on 2018/04/21 03:02
This app can challenge your brain in certain areas with multiple games and shows your progress. However, most of what it does is just make you better at those specific games. It doesn’t create new skills that will help you irl. In addition, Peak is too pushy when it comes to upgrading to Pro. It selects six games for you to play but it won’t let you play the last two until you upgrade. So annoying. Anytime I want to play a game I like I have to watch a video or “upGraDe tO pRo”. There are also games and exercises that you can’t even access until you get Pro. I can’t do this exercise specialized for me because I haven’t upgraded? I can’t look at my progress from more than a month ago? I can’t play this game without a subscription? I understand some limitations but y’all advertise the “pro” version to the point where I’m not interested.
Disappointed
by Amazonhunteress on 2018/04/06 12:29
So I love the games and it’s wonderful to see your progress. So naturally I thought it would be great if me and my sister would compete against my competitive mom who has started to show signs of Dementia. To help improve her memory. I’ve paid for pro, but I can’t add my sister to my account: it keeps saying “the email address is not a valid account, etc.” is it because she signed up under Facebook? No response from the Peak Team when I emailed them. I’ve seen her play under her account with the same email address. Then I read about linking with Facebook to compete against your friends, my friends sections of my “stats” continues to have the little brain there saying it’s lonely after I’ve linked my account with Facebook. I also hate the fact that the family plan doesn’t have a way to compete against your family members. Needless to say I have to look for another “ improve your brain app” to help my mom and get my money back.

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?
Apparently they don’t care
by ParadoxJan on 2019/02/28 22:27
February 2019 update - I’m removing another star because they still haven’t fixed the problem - you watch an ad in order to play a game, but about 50% of the time, after the ad you see a black screen, but no game. This happens repeatedly, and they’ve had sufficient time to fix it, so apparently they don’t care. Update to review below - I took off a star from my rating because at different times today I have tried watching an ad to be able to play a game and every time, I watched the full ad, but then got the blank black screen and no game. I hope this gets fixed, or I’m going to delete this app. _________ After you play the 4 free games you get each day, you are supposed to be able to play more if you are willing to watch an ad before each one. But sometimes I watch the ad, but afterwards just get a frozen black screen instead of a game to play. Recently this has been happening more frequently, to the point that now it’s happening 25-30% of the time. That’s aggravating. I think the games do promote mental agility, and several are somewhat entertaining, but for the most part, they aren’t what I consider fun. There are a couple little details that I find annoying. One is that the game “Word Fresh” will not accept the word “zen.” Another is that I can’t differentiate between the numbers 5 and 6 in the game “Pixel Logic” due to the font they used.
Nice but...
by LaurenEmmaOhYeah on 2018/05/12 17:45
This app really is great, I’m positive that a lot of people love it. This might sound ridiculous but I will be completely honest with all of u. I know that PEAK needs to make money, but they give u so many less games than members so I don’t use peak on my free time. I thought this would be a super great app but it’s not. I only use it for brain workouts and I’m not a member but u know what? I bet that members get to play the games on their free time cause they have more games, and not just for workouts. Duh! That’s how not fair it is!!! 👿 I’m not paying about two dollars a month for a darn app that doesn’t have to have u pay. I will certainly be looking for better apps that don’t require a stupid membership that I can actually play on my free time. Not fair. 🤯🤯😡😡😤😤👿👿
Super enjoyable and valuable! Even if you don’t upgrade!
by BellaPrincesa322 on 2019/02/14 12:06
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.
Not as fun without pro
by Alayna ML on 2019/05/22 04:18
While this is a fun app and I enjoy the games I do get, I do not pay or have the pro version. So I what I get is 4 free games a day (called my daily workout) that they choose for me. If I want to play any other game I have to watch an ad. This is not to bad but many of the games shown in the advertising for this app are not included unless you get pro. You can’t even watch ads to get them. Also often I will watch an ad to play a game and it will freeze up on me and not let me play the game. The screen just turns black and stays there. I knows it’s not my internet because it works for everything else and my phone is typically pretty fast. So I don’t know. It’s a good app but it doesn’t have all you probably think it has from the advertisements. It’s pretty limited but besides that it’s pretty fun and helpful. I like the skill analysis!
Some puzzles are compromised by physical hinderance
by BladeRunner9 on 2018/12/09 04:14
Or technical issues. For instance, the game where the elephant jumps across the river. I know exactly what I need to do, problem is the controls are very poor and glitchy. The elephant never goes where I point/swipe it to, therefore I score poorly even though it wasn’t my fault. Or other games that require your finger move an item on the touch screen... my fingers are not always dry and smooth, sometimes my finger may be sweaty and moist which makes it difficult to “glide” on the touchscreen. Therefore it compromises my ability to play the game even though it has nothing to do with intelligence, but rather physical issues. So again, I’ll score poorly even though it wasn’t my fault. These are only a few issues but they are big issues that should be fixed in an otherwise fun brain game.
Redundant Purchase
by Nelci V on 2019/06/08 19:05
I bought the Peak Pro subscription last year June 18, 2018 and I have never been more disappointed. The games within the app are pretty fun don’t get me wrong, the issue stems from the fact that once updated (user interface), the purchase became obsolete. I have not been able to play the game for a whole year essentially. I used to love to play this to challenge myself but they limited my playtime as soon as they updated the UI of the app. Sure the UI looked more sophisticated but it did not allow me to use the subscription again after that. I would want to purchase again but it’s pretty pointless if another update (system optimization,UI, more games) if I can’t even access the benefits of my subscription. If there is anyway to reimburse me in a way I could experience the glory once more then i would give this another chance after a thorough play through, if not then I don’t recommend this to any of my peers, colleagues and friends.
Fun but not worth it at all. Deleting.
by Lauren Kopf on 2018/03/23 03:57
1. Some of the games are fun to play. But some days I get on to play the games and it says I already have for the day. Which isn’t true, I set a reminder to play at 10:30pm (just good for my schedule. I’m usually just home from work and it’s nice to have something fun to do) and usually I can. But some nights, like tonight, I get on to play and it just won’t let me. It says I’ve already completed my workout for the day and if I want to play more I have to pay. 2. The only reason they have anything at all free on here is so they can put it on the App Store for “free”. I have no problem with free apps with in-app purchases until you’re ONLY listing it as free so people will download it, and then you charge a whopping $30+ for some minigames that I’ve been able to find free with other apps. 3. The few games that you CAN play without shelling out money (that you’ll regret spending) aren’t even full games. It literally says “play the full game with Pro”. At one point it said something about letting me play a game so I can “get a taste of Pro”. 4. Lastly, $35 a year doesn’t sound like much, but when you’re spending $35 on an app in general, that’s a lot of money. Let alone spending that much on a single app multiple times. A one time purchase of $10-$12 MAX is more worth it for this.
