Loading... is a website known for their personalized brain training and with their games being played over 75 million times, no wonder CNN, CBS and Discover Magazine had them featured. The new iOS release Fit Brains Trainer packs up all their goodies into an offline capsule, available for iPhone and iPad.

Like many other similar apps, the idea is to give constant exercise to your brain, with the help of interesting puzzles and games. Start by entering your personal info and you are greeted with the schedule of mental exercises suited for your age and sex. Your initial Brain Index (out of a maximum 1000) is evaluated and the expected increase is provided.

Each Training Session has 3 rounds of different games. A round is a two minute slot and you can complete as many questions as you want, based on your speed and accuracy. When times-up, your score with other stats like number of correct answers, average reaction time, accuracy etc pops up. At the end of the whole session, your increase in brain index, memory & speed are charted and a graphical performance report can also be accessed.. A percentile comparison of brain index, concentration, visual ability, problem solving skills, speed etc with others of the same category is a great feature as they provide the best reference sheet.

The games include counting drops, matching shadows, finding odds, picking bigger change, matching side view with top view, finding the next number in series, memory tests etc. Some of this sounded ridiculously easy to me and actually they were, for the first couple of sessions. But as your training tightens, you’re surely gonna get thirsty.

Unfortunately, all the games aren’t unlocked in the free version but can be subscribed via in-app purchase. These subscriptions can be shared with other iOS devices as well as with the original website and hence, return the best value for your money.

After each days training, you can see how much you are progressing and a projected index for the month is encouraging. Keeping aside the training, if you just want to play a few nerdy games, options are available for that too. I recommend all of you try this app for free and I’m sure the upgrades would be tempting.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:Yes, till my score reaches 1000.

Learning Curve:Low. Make sure you go through the HowTo tab and you'll be just fine!

Who Is It For:Anybody who likes his mind to be sharp.

What I Like:The performance reports and estimates.

What I Don't Like:Sharing and comparing with friends is a missing feature.

Final Statement:Regular exercise for your mind.
