User Reviews for Elevate - Brain Training Games

Updated after subscribing raised to 5*

For the last few months this has been one of my favorite apps. I have used is almost religiously missing very few days, learning a lot and really enjoying redoing the 3 random daily activities. I recommended it to friends, family and co-workers. I planned to take the leap and start a paid plan after the first of the month. This morning, the app changed. Free accounts now only let the user do each of the 3 activities one time and then locks it.Figured out -or- the app was updated to allow a non-subscriber to replay the 3 (of 6 possible) daily choices immediately when doing the recommended workout. Although not great, it does give a lot of good info to users for free. The paid version of the App is, of course, far better than the free version. I really like most of the workouts! The punctuation activity is great at reinforcing rules and being consistent. Some of the activities allow the user to review a list of words, definitions, etc. if all lives are lost. It would be great if this were a choice for successful games as well. I also wish there was an easy way to provide feedback for topics like Visualization when the meaning of a word doesn’t work well with a photo or could be interpreted to go with more than one photo or the unnatural or stilted language used in Syntax to show some a grammar concept would certainly be marked as an error in several of the other Elevate activities.

Excellent training app

When I started using this, it was often frustrating to work with. After taking some time to get familiar I find it is a tremendous resource. Look forward to doing the training sessions every day. Some are still very frustrating, but that’s part of the appeal of the program, specifically, acquiring new skills from working on new challenges. Bought the annual subscription a couple years back and have renewed it since then. It allows you to customize the training. For example, the standard is five games per day. I only do four. With the program, if I feel like doing another game, I can choose which one. Also, it’s a yearly subscription and not terribly expensive so it’s very worthwhile, especially compared to some of the other games billed monthly.One of the very best features is that most of the language-based games include explanations when you get a wrong answer. I have also tried Lumosity, and while some of the frustrations are comparable, they never include any kind of explanation for a wrong answer. As a result, the learning that comes from making mistakes is a very, very worthwhile part of the games. One suggestion, I play this on an iPad. Tried it on my phone and it did not work. Way too small. I know they have updated it many times since then, but never bothered to try again on my phone. It’s much, much easier to read on the larger screen.

Problem with app and company

I don’t understand why your app doesn’t list the errors in a section for us to learn from our errors. I was doing the memory part today the only items listed at the end were the ones I got right. I am confused as to what was the right word that some of the statements were referring to. When I was asked the normal question after taking the quiz whether the quiz was helpful or not I put in “not” because I couldn’t see what the correct answers to the ones that I missed. Then I got a response saying that the next time I take the quiz, it will adjust, I guess to be more helpful. What does that mean and how will it adjust?Also, while I was reading some of the reviews, I noticed that sometimes you use a computerized auto answer instead of a real person. One of the reviewer was complaining of the errors you have in some of your quizzes or tests. That was explained in the title of the review. Then in the explanation below the title they said something like “Such an app can’t afford this.”, which if your company would have allowed a human being to actually read the review along with the title you wouldn’t have put in your company’s reply to the reviewer telling them that there is a free version!!! How embarrassing!!!!I can’t see paying so very, very much money for this app if it has these problems.

Brain training that actually helps

Brain training apps can be questionable at times. Some are simple collections of brain twister games to try and help you memorize patterns on a grid, or pick the red word that actually reads blue... But what I appreciate about Elevate is that it challenges you with real world problems. Practice your ability to calculate percentages. It’ll come in handy next time you’re calculating your dinner tip, or figuring out how much you’ll save during a clothing sale. Elevate helps your to improve your writing skills and comprehension. Get better at spotting typos in your emails and texts. Quickly skim messages while reliably gathering what’s being communicated. There are so many games provided by Elevate which challenge your real-world skills, and push you to improve in areas that affect your day to day. There are free features, but thank goodness I bought a lifetime membership early on in Elevate’s life. I couldn’t have guessed I’d still love the app so many years later.If you want to get better at day to day tasks, and push yourself to your highest intellectual abilities, Elevate is a great app for you. I personally feel the benefits of using this app, and find myself returning to this app when I’m feeling less on top of things. Give your brain that much needed mental stretch. You’ll be glad you did.

Too little free content

While I thoroughly enjoy this app and the challenges, I am left feeling sad at the limit of content available to those whom cannot afford the monthly or annual fee to completely unlock the app. When I had use of the free trial unlocking I found myself diving in and wanting to do more and more activities of those where I seemed weakest. I felt as if I were actually making progress in strengthening those areas. However now the trial has run its course I am limited to only three daily training activities randomly chosen by the app. Unfortunately so far those activities have mostly been in my strongest subjects so I’ve found myself growing bored and utilizing the app less and less. Seeing as how this is an “educational” app as stated in the ads presented between each free activity I would think that you could reap enough revenue through such type ads as to offer more free content. I know I would be willing to watch ads to be able to access some more of what I was able to when I had the free trial. All in all it is definitely an enjoyable app, especially if you can afford the unlocking fee. If not, you’ll probably bore out easily and eventually remove the app due to lack of access to resources.

Good but not enough

I have enjoyed using this app but after challenging myself to do it daily for a couple of months I feel like it’s become a chore and isn’t doing much for me. The games/daily challenges are so short, and basically over in a few seconds. I doubt any one of them usually takes more than a minute or so. It’s just not enough time to “exercise” my brain. Additionally, I have been playing consistently, and consistently doing very well (usually a few personal bests a day) yet the material doesn’t seem to be getting more challenging. Most of the math is something my 10 year old could do, though not as quickly. Similar with a lot of the reading and grammar challenges. Even memory stuff. I think this app is a fun way for an adult to feel like they are doing something for their cognitive health, but after a while is mostly an ego boost designed to make you feel smart for doing elementary school level problems quickly. I’d gain a lot more from an actual challenge. If I’m setting high scores every day, I’m not being challenged, so it can’t be doing much to exercise my brain. I’d rather be challenged to think more deeply, not just more quickly. I am close to giving up. I had hoped that if I played every day it would start giving me harder material. Too bad I have another 7 months on my membership.

Timing everything skews learning

I can see how this app could be beneficial and enjoyable to some people. However, the fact that every game is timed adds an artificial (and IMO arbitrary) goal that supersedes the learning objective of the app. While it makes sense to time the games that appropriately aim to speed up a specific ability, it doesn’t make sense to time every game—and to cut off the game when the time expires. Some things warrant a thoughtfulness that the stress of a timer precludes. It’s difficult to get the most out of an exercise like “Adjective Recall” or “Eloquence” when I’m not allowed enough time to explore my vocabulary on a deeper level. Further, these exercises are so far removed from the real-life experiences of writing and speaking that the timer offers no real measurement of one’s actual abilities. Unfortunately, access to more challenging activity levels relies on speedy responses rather than true knowledge levels. I suppose if you generally believe that “faster is better,” then this app will suit you. I, however, fail to see the benefits of the concept of “speed editing,” for example. For many of the skills this app addresses, the timer turns “training” into “gaming.” If you’re not interested in gaming, this app won’t satisfy your craving for intellectually challenging puzzles.

Productive use of time

Besides being fun, stimulating, and challenging, use of this app has helped me refine my thinking about grammar, word usage and mental math, and helped me become better at balancing a quick response with error avoidance. In fact, playing this game helped me realize that in many other situations I have been “dumbing down” my thinking to accommodate the common errors that are usually not seen as errors. This app snapped me out of that thinking. The program writing is at a higher level than other games / mind stimulation exercises I’ve seen elsewhere, to the extent it brings out fine errors of usage that typically go unnoticed or uncorrected. Plus, the support team appears to truly appreciate user feedback so you have a chance to challenge any result you think is wrong and get a prompt reply. This probably helps keep the game at a more rigorous level. Overall, bravo for one of the very best apps I have encountered.p.s. agree with another rater that some of the photos used in the memory recall game are not great illustrations of the concept or are ambiguous and I, too, would like the app developers to enable users to flag those to continue making this App better and better.

Could you please add the answer results for math?

I’m really liking these quizzes so far, but I’m very rusty on math, and I would like to see a summary of what I got right and wrong on the math quizzes, and I’ve noticed barely any of them do that. I take screenshots of the end results sometimes so I can go over them more meticulously and replicate how I got them correct or how to get them correct next time. I know some of these quizzes are new and still developing, but it would be really awesome if that was made possible in the near future. If I didn’t have so little money, I’d definitely be keeping the subscription, but unfortunately I’ll have to just enjoy the trial while I can. Hopefully the free version isn’t too lacking, because this is really what I needed to help my brain get thinking again. (I had to re-learn long multiplication for one of those math quizzes, and re-figure decimals. Even I find this weird, but I’m actually excited about that. Finding the chance to reabsorb knowledge on my own terms and time has really made me remember that I actually love learning— I just hate the typical structure lol.) I hope sometime in the future I have more money to spare and can resubscribe, this is the sort of exercise that actually seems like exercise, it’s not just flashing colors and games, it’s not just dull work, it’s a nice mix, with colors and aesthetics to keep you focused and actual required focus and problem-solving required.

Almost perfect

I rarely rate apps; you can look at my history, and see I only review an application if it’s disappointing. Elevate is not so terrible but it lacks things that you would think they would have fixed by now. I am an annual membership holder, so you know I’m not lying about investing time in this. The app is great, and it has a few awesome tricks that make visitors return and seek out activities (interesting stories, the music, positive feedback, etc). There are two concerns that need tweaking:1.) Stopping a streak in the middle of a personalized workout because the time becomes 12:00 am. I feel it short-sighted to make the algorithm blind to a continuous workout in favor of ending your streak, even if you’re on the last activity! Some of us are busy and we don’t have the time to exercise until evening. 2.) There are not enough study materials for math problems, and not enough helpful strategies demonstrated to become stronger in mental math. I am talking specifically in the “study” section of elevation. Where are the study materials for Equivalence and Conversions? Also, can you give us the open to play without being timed on purchasing and discounts? I hate mental math, but one of the reasons I’m using this app is to become better at it, why would I want the stress of being timed when I just want to learn?
