    The advertisement doesn't match the game itself at all

  • Good little Brain Teasers

    By mbglobetrotter
    The app works flawless for me. There are a number of mini-games or challenges you can do everyday. At the end of a session (5games in a row) you get presented with a summary, how you compare against others in your age, gender etc group. It also gives you a detailed overview of your areas of strength and weaknesses. If it really improves and helps your brain, I don't know. I certainly get better with the scores of the challenges but I have not seen any real life changes, yet. But definitively a better use of your time then most activities we do on our phone everyday.
  • Great app! Not enough games

    By Ivanka
    Love using this app, love the games but I’ve had it for almost 6 months now and am getting tired of the same games over and over. If you want my $35 next year, Peak team, you’re going to have to add games! It does get tedious after a while. Also- there are only 3 emotion games and that’s not enough when you consider problem solving has 10.
  • Great app without the ads

    By Mick Rom
    I used to love this app and use it everyday, now it’s annoying with all the ads and I’m close to deleting it. Finish one exercise, listen to an ad, then repeat. This has completely killed my user experience. I wish the app team could think of more creative and better ways bring in revenue instead of just having more ads. I’d rather just use Memrise or Elevate instead.

    I absolutely love Peak. I almost can’t use words to describe how much I love this app, so I just use it everyday!
  • Only fun at beginning and here’s why:

    By Ejbatch
    The better you get, the harder it is. Makes sense, right? But certain games only let you advance with one condition and that is a ridiculously high brain score. I have a high score, have been playing a long time but at a certain point it is a brick wall. Bad design. Also no new games as long as I’ve been playing. So it’s lots of fun at first then it just sort of becomes frustrating.
  • Love the different games

    5
    By Wirzy
    I have been playing Peak for over 5 years. I like the different games, every day is different and does not take too much time to complete. My one request would be that they add an alert on the app the would show until you finished the games for that day. Enjoy!
  • One of the best app

    By Stronguz
    I will not write a long review, but I can say that this app is really good for brain training. If there are 3 best apps in the world, it is one of these.
  • another subscription scam 0/5 stars

    1
    By Shelbywelbyyy
    con you into signing up for a free subscription but then make it IMPOSSIBLE to cancel. I had to pay $35 for a year subscription to an app I won’t use. emailed them and because THEY didn’t get back to me in time (because there is no where on the actual app to cancel, you have to email them) they are making me pay the YEAR subscription. even though I reached out beforehand. so yeah 0/10 recommend. just a money scam.
  • Nice

    By KMIYAHLEASHIA🧐
    I like this app a lot. I feel as it if challenges my iq score. And it challenges my brain, sort of like brain teezers but with mathematics. I would recommend if you love school and want to challenge your advanced mathematician in yourself!!

  • Update killed the free option

    By Not imprezzed
    I have had Peak for three years, using the free version. There was a reasonable amount of ads which was acceptable. I realize free will have some drawbacks. A few days ago, Peak disappeared from my screen. Went to app store and brought it back. New version has ads after every game, every play. Some ad must be interacted with to get them to close. I didn’t mind ads, but this makes the app unusable. Nope. Gone.

    Suddenly every ad just results in a black screen. I have to force close the app and restart just to get through my daily workout. Hope it gets fixed soon
  • Pixel logic

    By F.A.B1
    The pixel logic game doesn’t seem to let you go past the second try. I would do exactly what it tells me in the hints but when I am done, it won’t allow be to move on. Or maybe on missing something?
  • Scammy

    By melibs5
    Don’t fall for it. The free trial will auto renew at a YEARLY membership of $35!!! That’s outrageous. Then the company will point you to Apple and say there is nothing they can do and Apple will point back to the company and shrug their shoulders. It’s a predatory business practice to scam money from people and hope they don’t notice. I almost enjoyed the games enough to consider another month but I wouldn’t willingly pay 35 for five of these apps. And the rankings and scores don’t even feel legit. There is no real information about how they score or why you are ranked a certain way. Overall this is just a big waste of money. They should just call it a game app and stop lying to people. Shame on Apple and this developer for setting up their free trial this way. If you get enough Complaints that you need to put it in your FAQ you’re probably doing something wrong.

    It is a lot of fun but I wish I could play the games when I finish my daily challenge without having to pay for pro.

    Accepted free trial. Can’t find option to cancel. Seems year’s subscription is automatic whether I want it or not.
  • Scam

    By BadGameDon'tPlay
    This game is just a scam to get your personal information. As soon as I went to play, it started requesting my email, access to personal documents in my device and so on. I would avoid this because I was a sucker.

    I’m a kid and I play this game. It’s super fun and I really enjoy it. I know this may sound pathetic but when you can compare your stats to others-I’m not even close to being 19 years old. And I’m kinda feel like an idiot because they have way higher rates. Could you do like do 9-11? More in my reach? That may be a stretch but I don’t know, just must opinion. I can’t think of any hate to say about this game. And for those who go on and hate, they’re probably just salty because they’re doing better than 0 percent! Don’t let the haters get to you. Keep up the good work! :)

    Kind of annoying that you have to pay to be able to use anything. That didn’t make sense.

    I love this app because it makes me focus and help my brain get better with focusing.
  • Double charging

    By Whitedragon232
    I subscribed to the monthly app, then they offered me a year subscription promotion with discount. Bought that, but now realized they’ve been still charging the monthly fee. So paying double And can’t get it all refunded.
  • Really helps keep your mind sharp!!

    By Bayou Mobsters
    I’ve been using this for some time. I’m currently on a 123 day streak. I’ve noticed that I seem sharper at work and don’t have brain farts nearly as much. Also I have several friends that I got to use the app so we have our own personal rivalries!!
  • Fun but Aggravating

    3
    By Jay_Elis
    I used to love this app! All of the games were fun and I felt like they were really benefiting me as well. I just recently started using it again and now there are so many ads. I understand only being limited to certain actions with a free version and maybe having a couple of ads. But getting an advertisement after playing EVERY SINGLE game is a little bit ridiculous. It has taken the fun out of it for me.

    Challenging and entertaining while improving my memory. Once I start I can’t stop!
  • A workout for the brain

    By HENDNEKDID
    I’m gonna just say how amazingly accurate this app is!! You really do become smarter!! It just helps with your problem solving skills!! You think differently!!! I recommend this to everyone
  • How it helps

    5
    By jeoeegejwoeb
    In my opinion this app helps because it is very useful and it can improve a lot of this! It is helping me get faster when it comes to the problems, it also doesn’t ask you to rate the app a lot. You get to pick the days you want to be on it and it will remind you. You can even pick all the days of the week!
  • Odd concept of mental agility

    1
    By Nucarelli
    Interface: cute at start, instructions mostly clear, overbearing feedback post game. Play: Instructions sometimes confusing, swipe too sensitive (hi, wide fingers?’). Not sure how these apps keep getting away with claims of brain elevating. Conclusion: My brain is fine, your app can’t handle these fierce digits. Just sayin.
  • Great app. False progress.

    3
    By orionc123
    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.
  • Awful to cancel.

    By not in the mood, apple.
    Puzzles, good. A little uncool you have to pay for some of them, but fine, whatever. The subscription is two dollars a month or twenty for the year, but it is an absolute struggle to cancel. Very obnoxious. The subscription cancelation is very obviously not optimized in an attempt to get you to stay on board.
  • Ads are awful

    4
    By Nitrous241
    I know you can pay to get a full version however there are some ads that are truly awful. Specifically the ones that are like games that force you to interact to dismiss them. I don't mind waiting 15 sec between games - but some ads require me to kill the app and restart just to advance.
  • Not all correct

    Playing some of the game after reading and re reading the instructions Go llay the game doing the way it is suppose to be marks as wrong redo the game then marks correct what is the deal here

  • Fun but...

    It’s a fun game but you can only play it 5mins a day unless you buy the pro version.
  • Love it- even the free version!

    4
    By Jcbrcu
    The free version of this app is amazing for a free version. Yeah there are ads but it’s free. I get to do 4 pre-chosen games each day and can play more after watching an ad. My only issue is in the Word Fresh game there are a lot of words that don’t get accepted as “real words” even though they are legit words. It’d be nice to see the dictionary for some of the word/la gauge games expanded.
  • Best Set of "Brain" Games Ever

    5
    By ArcRanch
    This is the best set of brain games ever. Once I started playing these games, I've dropped playing all my other games. These are such a better challenge.
  • Keeps me motivated and brain engaged

    By GoBears$10
    Love that there is actually science behind the games and that I am challenged to improve myself in so many ways. It also fires my competitiveness.
  • Mixed bag

    4
    By cv888
    Some of the exercises are clearly well thought out, challenging and exciting. Others, such as Word Fresh, lack in depth and opportunities for progress. Hitting a ceiling, it seemed the only next level to reach was Brainiac which required an overall brain score of 700. After about two weeks it seemed I had crossed that threshold yet nothing happened. So I checked again what the requirements were to reach Brainiac status. Mind you, the developers had not updated the app in at least 3 weeks yet mysteriously the overall score requirement to reach the Brainiac level had been changed from 700 to 800. It seems that’s one way to get around having to develop more challenging levels in an part of the app. Maybe I should cancel my subscription.

    Too many pop up adds
  • Where’s Lifetime Subscription?!

    3
    By CLS_1980
    After some issues with accessing my purchase, I’m happy to report that after a few days, I’m now able to access the game. However, now I’m missing the different subscription purchase options such as one year and lifetime? I’m only being offered a monthly subscription for $4.99 which is ridiculous. Although this game is great if allowed access it’s not worth $4.99 a month...
  • Not Free

    By Adan#6969
    The app requires you to pay to play games it is the most annoying thing even you can only play 5 free games in the start then pay for the rest WORST GAME EVER
  • Turned greedy fast

    2
    By Rivendare
    It started good but it turned into spammy (BUY PLOUR PRO! BBUY OUR PRO!) realtor fast. It is even asking to watch a commercial to let me replay day’s games. Nothing original on games, a cheap imitation of Lumiosity.. no reason to switch to this one.
