Think of Peak as a gym for your brain. The app combines brain science and gamification to give you a comprehensive brain workout, helping you improve your focus, memory, mental agility, problem-solving, and language skills with over 30 mind games that have been developed in collaboration with experts in neuroscience, cognitive science, and education. The games adapt to your skill level as you play, ensuring that you’re always getting a challenging brain workout.
How it works: The app starts with a brief introduction to Peak and a few simple Yes/No questions to set training goals before creating a user account. Once the account is created, the app presents you with your first workout. It will analyze your current skill level in different areas (such as focus, problem-solving, memory, language, etc.) once you’re finished with your first workout and display your overall performance (also called Peak Score) on a brain map. You can also compare your overall performance with other Peak users in your age group or profession to know your strong and weak areas. Oh yes! You can also add your Facebook Friends to compete and compare your performance with them.
The app not only gives you a score and Peak Points after each game, but it also ranks you on the basis of your performance. There are 6 ranks in Peak: Beginner, Novice, Graduate, Expert, Master, and Grand Master; the higher the rank, the more challenging the game. Add to that, there is a daily Peak Points target that you must achieve to complete your training for the day.
About the Peak Games
There are 32+ fun yet challenging mind games in Peak, including 8 pro-only games. The best part about the games in Peak is that they are quite unique in comparison to the ones offered by many other brain-training apps. For example: there is a game called Perilous Path in which you’re shown some danger tiles on a square matrix, and you’re then asked to memorize their position and avoid them when connecting two dots from Point A to Point B. It stimulates your ability to think ahead and organize information.
In another memory game called Baggage Claim, you’ll be first asked to memorize the names of the cities shown, and then to perform a random task. As soon as you complete the random task, it asks you to select the cities that were shown initially from the given options. This game challenges your multi-tasking and task switching abilities, and also analyses that how good you are at temporarily holding information in memory.
Free vs Pro Account
Your daily workout consists of 6 games, but you’ll get to play only 4 in the free version, with the option to come back to them throughout the day. To get unlimited access to all 32+ games and in-depth insights on your performance, you just need to do one thing. Yup! Upgrade the app to Pro!! The cost of monthly subscription is INR 80, whereas yearly subscription is for INR 550. You can also pay INR 1000 as one-time fee for lifetime access. Best of all, you can invite your friend to try out the Peak app and both of you will get a week of Peak Pro for free.
