  • Very Good

    This game is actually very good. But I can’t access the Pro games even if I have pro. Can you help me?
  • Great app!

    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!😊
  • It was great before all of the ads

    By BV71115
    Before the update you would only have to deal with ads if you wanted to replay a game. Now every time you finish a game a 30second ad pops up. The ads are hard to click out of even when you watch it for 30seconds and if you leave the game to go to something else while the ad is plying it freezes and takes forever to get to the next game. I used to really love this game and would do it during my 15min breaks now I can’t because of the ads after everything. I’m very close to uninstalling. My streak has dropped drastically.
  • Enjoyed at first. Now too many ads

    By pinegamer
    Free version seems to slowly ramp up the number of ads you have to watch. Now the game is almost unplayable having to wait 30-60 secs between games while I'm bombarded with other game ads.

    By Danoftheforest
    Love the daily brain teasers, but infinitely annoyed that the free version has just started showing obnoxious and unavoidable ads between every single game you play. Will quit using the platform because of how irritating these ads are.
  • Too many ads

    2
    By ayoder16
    They advertised that you get 1 free workout a day and if you want more you’ll have to pay for the pro version. This is understandable but then they began to incorporate ads in between each game during a workout. It started with just 5 second still ads and now has moved on to full blown 30 second video ads that often break and won’t allow you to X out of them. I’m starting to get fed up and will likely delete the app soon if nothing changes
  • Become Smarter AND Dumber at the Same Time

    3
    By HWMWH
    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.
  • Used to be great. Just okay now

    By ChizAg10
    This was a great app not to long ago but since they added the ads (free version) and are constantly pushing the pro, I ended up deleting since I found another called Lumos that has better games. If you pay for pro it’s good, if your looking for a good free find, I’d look elsewhere.
  • Love it!

    By M. C. Starbuck
    I like how it only lets you play for a short amount of time each day unless you upgrade. That way I don’t spend too much time on it! It’s so fun!
  • Not Free

    2
    By Jaxhunter
    The game is “free to play” until you finish the assessment. Then you are expect to pay to play any further. They basically lie, then try an trick you into buying it. This is shady and unethical imo. Also, the games are basically zip zips. No skill required imo.
  • YES! FIXED!!

    By Emily 😒😒😒😒😒😒
    I've had Peak for some time now, but it had a notification that wouldn't go away. It was always on my home screen but the new update has fixed this issue! Fantastic brain trainer.
  • Close button for the ads is so hidden

    1
    By thelorgilmore
    Close button for the ads is white on white background so if you don’t know where it used to be you have no choice but to click on the ad.
  • Overrun with ads

    1
    By AlexJAuer
    I love games like Peak. I’ve played many through the years. And Peak’s games and interface set it apart from all the others. It was outstanding! Now, there is an ad after *every single game* and it’s incredibly annoying. That means I’m having to sit through 4 ads each day I come back. I’m through with Peak and will continue with Elevate and others.
  • Needs some work

    By Heart4ake
    I love this app, but the happy river game is not user conducive. The elephant is nearly impossible to navigate any direction other than forward. Maybe if there were directional arrows on the screen to totally control whether he moves left or right the game would be more accurate, as I know that words like “dead, sad, foul,” etc. are negative, it’s just the user interface isn’t intuitive enough for me to navigate the elephant to choose the positive emotions in a timely manner. I guess for now I’ll just have the emotional equivalent of a bag or rocks. An update fixing this would be awesome and make a full subscription worthwhile.

  • Won’t let me even finish assessment

    By Justbenagain
    I have to buy to finish the assessment? That means I can’t play it for free? Then this is obviously a pay to play app then
  • ADS!!!

    1
    By malll98
    The update now has an ad play every time you play the next game! And you can’t even skip the ads. Sorry but won’t be playing this any longer. Takes too long to play a days worth of training! I really loved this app too
  • Good Feedback

    5
    By jcoopboymom
    I like the variety games and the challenges they present. I really appreciate the feedback at the end of the games that show how I’ve progressed or digressed and where I fit regarding the population of people who utilize these games.
  • Ads Now?

    By !JBomb!
    It seems that something changed. I started getting ads automatically playing between each exercise when I go to do my daily workout. What changed? Don’t like this at all.

  • It was lots of fun

    By Mary ohwhatabeautifulmorning
    Until they started putting ads in between every. Single. Game. What used to take me about seven minutes to complete now is a long, drawn out cacophony of game advertisements. Yeah, I could subscribe. But the free version was good enough and I got that they had to pay the bills. But seriously, the ads have gotten COMPLETELY out of hand. SMH.
  • Was fun at first

    By lowm8tenance
    I really enjoyed this so for awhile. Then it started having SO many ads, trying to urge me to upgrade. I don’t play often enough to pay for any ap. With all the ads, not worth my time when there are so many better options.
  • Lame and greedy.

    By vnxii
    The games are locked behind a payment wall. You have to fork up $5 a month or $100 upfront to access the rest of the activities that look way more fun and challenging than the default ones. Funny enough i had this downloaded before and i wondered why i had deleted it. Now i know why.

    Oh how this app went from great to good to bad and now to worse. Aside from the app giving us repeated boring brain games, which aren’t really brain challenging games ... now they throw in ads in between. Lovely, when a developer throws in ads it only means one thing (they’re losing money) uninstall... bye

    By Dazeddddandconfuseddd
    I like the concept. I don’t like that I can only play once a day. I’d like to improve my scores and play more times without having to pay for a subscription. The games used to be free if you unlocked them.

  • Fun But Too Many Adds

    By PaTa Ken
    Some of the adds are frustratingly long. The premium is way too expensive.
  • Unusable with the new ads

    1
    By wwasrf
    The latest update the first week of 2019 makes the free version unusable. I have to close the app to get rid of ads between games. Will no longer be using. What a stupid move on developers part. And having sound turned off within app does not stop sound in the freaking intrusive ads.
  • Awesome app

    I love this app! It’s fun and it helps improve brain function! Being s mom of 5 young boys I need all the brain function I can get!😉🤪
  • The best free brain training app if you don’t mind the apps

    By Elija Rodgers
    The Android version is way less intrusive with its ads but this is still a great free app.
  • Actually I’d say 4 and a half, not 4.

    By LasK13
    Really helpful and fun. Sneaks a lesson into fun learning. It’s tricky but you learn. If you like this I also suggest Elevate, also like peak. I love it. I have it.
  • Only able to use once a day for free

    1
    By £izzard
    If there were more things to do for free other than one set of things, once, I might have not deleted it after the first day. But due to lack of things to do once you complete the original assessment it’s not taking up my space anymore.
  • Great mental stimulation

  • Latest Update Drastically Reduces Game

    1
    By MeredithBoring
    The latest update of this game has unfortunately changed it enough for me to stop using it. Now, between every game there is a 30 second ad (something that wasn’t there before) and freezes, lags, or it simply crashes the app. I’m sad, because this was my favorite daily game...

  • Scores based on ranks, not actual performance

    2
    By SereinityK
    Coming from a lifetime peak pro user with a peak brain score of 757/1000 after 3 weeks of using the app. Hear me out. To an extent, the peak game scores reflect your performance in the game. However, the way the scoring system works, you can only score up to X points until you rank up, and sometimes ranking up in a particular game requires completion of a silly achievement such as playing a game 50 times while making 4 or fewer mistakes. In this sense, it gives you a false sense that you’re getting “smarter” when all of a sudden you’ve increased your peak score (when actually your score when up thanks to ranking up and therefore increasing the maximum possible score when actually you were just stuck playing easy low scoring levels at the beginning). I wish that from the beginning they scored purely based on aptitude and did dynamic adjustment of game difficulty based on performance. This also means just because you start out with a low peak score it doesn’t mean you’re not doing as well in the game as others who play peak, rather you just haven’t invested as many hours into ranking up your account.
  • It was better before the upgrade

    1
    By Disappointed Player 88
    I agree with several others here that the latest “upgrade” to the free version - that puts an ad between games - is very off-putting. Sure doesn’t make me want to shell out for the paid version.
  • Good but a bug

    3
    By GO Reviewer
    I like using this app but there’s a bug that kind of ruins the fun for me. I don’t have the Pro version so I watch ads to get the full workout. Anytime I watch an ad afterward the screen stays black and I have to restart. When I restart the ad didn’t count so I watched it for nothing. I hope this is fixed so I can fully enjoy my experience.
  • I have a few complaints

    3
    By Ali1676
    I really like this game but I have a few complaints. First of all, if you would please make viewing the percentile optional. I am not so good at games and I am trying to get better but the low percentage displayed makes me feel discouraged and I lose much confidence in my ability. It makes me just want to delete the app, even though I actually enjoy the games. Secondly, as another player mentioned, the buzzing/vibrating when you make a mistake in a game is a little too harsh and unnecessary. Mistakes are a part of the brain, so what’s the point of getting punished for them? I understand that it makes you less likely to make a mistake in the future, but I still don’t appreciate it.
