Fit Brains Trainer for Android is a very interesting app. I like it better than the other brain apps I’ve tried, like Mind Games, mostly because this one charts progress and lays out your results in a user friendly, easy to read format. Just like muscles can improve with hard work at the gym, so too can your brain benefit from a workout with this app.
Fit Brains Trainer has a lot going for it. Basically, it’s a collection of different concentration and memory tests designed to keep you sharp and thinking. The exercises aren't difficult, but they are challenging. And I certainly do feel more alert after my brain workouts. Exercises can be completed in any order you wish. Some are more fun than others, and everyone will settle on their own favorites. But they all work quite well, and I actually start to feel a little mentally exhausted after a long session, just like working out at the gym.
Controls for each exercise are very simple, just tap and touch. The hard part is the remembering and figuring it all out. The graphics are very colorful and inviting, so it doesn't feel too much like ‘work’ and invites you to play more. The only downside, is you’ll quickly run into the purchase wall and need to upgrade to the pro version to unlock all the features.
Fit Brains Trainer is a really good entry in the genre. The statistical data is nicely laid out and encourages you to try harder and beat your previous scores. Nicely done, and it certainly can’t hurt any. Maybe it’ll help me to remember where the heck I put my car keys!! Miracles happen.
