The app itself its pretty good, but the huge ads are frustrating. They don't interfere with functionality, however.
Great App! The best Dual n Back so far... Have been using it for quite a long time! Two things would like to report though (maybe this is just my phone's problem): after trying a manual mode - the left bar of the field becomes inclined, and goes back to normal only after a shape is shown in left part of the field, but later becomes inclined as well... Same happens after turning the manual mode off. Another thing - buttons remain "pushed" after touching until the next shape/sound is thrown, which is a kind of a distraction of attention.
I've been using this off and on for a few years now. It seems that after a playing for a few minutes in the morning, my thinking and sharpness seem better throughout the day. Highly recommended.
In manual mode, nback will stop before last trial. So if I set it to level 4 with 8 trials, it stops at 7. Will update score when fixed.
This Program works very well, it is definitely a brain teaser!
Using this app I can recall my short-term memory well during the day. If you get to 5nBack you can expect to be able to remember entire phone numbers for up to a minute. And stay engaged on conversations more easily. Pretty helpful. Effects last for months.
Glad to see that active development resumed, keep up the great work, it is still the best app for this game.
Best brain app that actually exercises your brain. I've noticed a vast improvement in my passive memory. I've also been trying to play with the piano sounds and it's much harder :)
It would be great to know time per day spent playing as one of the statistics
Thank you for listening to your users. This update manages to integrate ads in a way that isn't terribly annoying, so both users and creator are served.
If you've played BrainWorkshop before this is the best clone I've found for Android. Look no further.
Simple and good UI. Game keeps one sharp as well.
The developer is very responsive to suggestions and the new update(s) to the app after several years make it even better. Well worth paying for to remove the ads and support the developer.
I really love this app and have been using it alot lately. Will pay for the premium version soon (im just afraid i will lose my history?). As for the update, please add the original theme as an option in the settings. I came to love it and would really like it back (especially the original gameplay theme), the effect when pressing the btns is different (less notable now), the moving square has changed color? The board background is slightly darker? there is a small whitespace gap below the buttons.
Hey Philip (if that's your name) on behalf of all those who play this game, I thank you for your efforts in developing this app. For years we enjoyed a smooth no nonsense game of customisable n back.I see in the app notes section, you seem to bitter for our thankless selfishness towards your effort. Please do understand that yours being one of the only apps that was add free, we came to give it high regard and expected no less so when we started seeing invasive adds, we commented. No reason to feel offended
Thanks for the great app!
Defeats the whole purpose of the game
I have become accustomed to brain fitness pro. They say the ideal time for training is 25 to 30 minutes per day . You should figure out how many sets it would take to last about 30 minutes. I assume the reps are about the same as you would have them bring my fitness pro . That is brain fitness pro. Voice does not always work right on these things.
I cant download this after trying DOZENS of times...after confirming download button a window pops up "CONGRATULATIONS...brain n-back will be installed on your device soon. WTMF! google play needs to get they shyte together and fix this. Oi Nguyen! where else can i get this bro?
This is mostly great. But for the life of me, I can't find any place where it keeps track of how many minutes you've put in on training in a day, which is odd, since all the studies talk about the required amount of training time per day. It lists "trials" for today only -- does that mean full sessions or what, I don't know -- but I don't know how to convert trials into "minutes of training" except by using a stopwatch while I play the game. Also, there's no Abort button. More than once it started into the next session because I must have brushed against the Next button without even knowing it, or the phone rang right after I started, and there's no choice but to quit the app entirely or let that training session play out.
Can you make the points in the progress-chart scale with the number of plays? Would be nice to see on which days I tried vehemently to raise my average. ;-) Generally, I hope you store information abt every play - to allow statistics some day.
PLEASE please please store data on every day of training- it'd be great to have access to a more detailed breakdown of each day!
Works fine. Best interface and voice. But prefs are not stored so I constantly have to reset. Is this fixed in the premium version? [HTC rezound]. Also, the force up to triple after a good double round is really a deal breaker for me, so I use another app.
Great n-back clone. Personally I would have loved the ability to load custom sounds, or at least have the NATO alphabet included as in the original. For those who say this is a boring and hard game, you are stupid; this is not a "game" for you to enjoy, but a tool for smarter (than you, you can't even read the description) people to improve their intelligence.
I sense progress even after only two days. I would greatly appreciate it if you included the time spent for each session, as each level differs in length.
I didn't notice this until today that the number said "dual 3 back" when I played. Does that mean I have to go 3 back? Even though the default is set at 2. Someone tell me? Plz. Does the app automatically adjust the level as you improve?
Customizing between shape, color, position, and sound is easy, however the sound sets are pitch which is only useable if you have perfect pitch, or very good ear, and the letters are monotone and not easily distinguished. I think new audio a bbs a refreshed interface would get this app 5 stars.
The letters being said sound like a chipmunk on helium... I can't even understand it. The piano tones are also very high pitched... I think there's an audio glitch, and the app is largely unusable like this.
I don't know but the game doesn't work right some time
I do not want to progress until I am ready. I m7st be able to decide. Poor software uses the user; this is a great example.
I've been using BrainWorkshop quite a lot on PC earlier, now with this app to continue my training I'm quite happy. A big thank you for bringing the best n-back to android.
I will donate when I can because I appreciate the ad and the lack of freemium bs.
After using this app over a couple of months I started noticing a change in certain mental functions and focus
Downloaded about 6 months ago, loved it but stopped. Just came back to it and noticed that sometimes the block doesn't appear when the letter is spoken. Very distracting. Please fix. Galaxy S3
I live in a large household and cannot use sound on my phone. I found this app very confusing.
A great app! I keep making progress..
Just wanted one more thing: The manual mode as it , as it is the desktop application, The Brain Workshop
Love it, paid for it. Simple to use, difficult to master. Thank you for providing this!
Would have been 5 stars if there was crab mode!
