If you really want to know how slow your mind has become over the years, you’re about to find out.
Peak is a brain-training app that tests how your memory, focus and coordination (among other things) measure up against fellow users.
Thought you were good at problem solving? We won’t blame you for not celebrating when you discover that you score “better than 19% of users at this rank” (that’s the app’s ever-so-polite way of telling you that most people are actually far better at problem solving than you).
Peak sets you daily workouts to get your grey matter in shape. These workouts take the form of simple but challenging games in which, for example, you’ll be required to sort images at speed to test your focus or retrace a path on a grid without hitting a grenade to test your memory. Subscribe if you want to get more than one practice session in a day and would like access to the full suite of challenges.
The good news is, the more you train, the better you will get – and Peak provides you with helpful statistics and charts to let you see your improvements over time.
It will also send you notifications to remind you that your workout is due – because obviously you’d forget otherwise. After all, if your memory was any good, you wouldn’t be here.
