About Brain N-Back

WHAT IT IS:
Dual N-Back has been shown to improve working memory and fluid intelligence, which was previously thought unchangable. This is a simple clone of Brain Workshop http://brainworkshop.sourceforge.net/ with a clean and fast interface. Audios are taken from the desktop game with its creator (Paul Hoskinson)'s permission.

VERSIONS:
There's no difference in terms of features between Brain N-Back and Brain N-Back Prime. They both exist for historical reasons. You can either pay for Brain N-Back Prime or get the free version (with ads) then donate to remove the ads later if you feel like it. Like us on Facebook! ^^ https://www.facebook.com/BrainNBack/

If you rate me less than 5 stars, consider leaving a comment. I've always tried to improve the app according to users' comments.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
Lots of people have complained based on a lack of proper understanding of the game's purpose. You might want to skim this FAQ: http://www.gwern.net/DNB%20FAQ

Or if you don't have time, skim FAQ below. In short, you should play using sheer intuition without strategizing (e.g. visualizing patterns, repeatedly recalling, etc.)

1. I want sound for Russian/French/...

==> You are not supposed to symbolize the sounds. Strategizing the game helps you play better, but will not work out your brain. What language it is shouldn't matter. The English sound shouldn't have been there in the first place. It is the default just to stay faithful with the original version. I reccommend you use Piano to reduce the risk of symbolizing the sound.

2. Please disable "auto advancement". I need to feel ready by practicing the lower level first.

==> Staying at your comfort level doesn't work out your brain. You are supposed to move on as soon as you do reasonably with the previous level. It doesn't matter if you keep failing at the higher level. It's the trying that works out your brain.

Does what it's supposed to do. Would be nice to be able to control prgression, maybe succeeding at a level a few times before going to the next. Too many fluke wins...

Doesn't appear to follow the rules as described in the tutorial. The level decreases after only 1 session below 50%. It went from level 4 back to level 2 after 1 session at 50%.

by U####:

Probably the best n-back game in Play Store. Simple interface, non-intrusive ads... One suggestion though: maybe that green title bar could change its colour to match the background's colour during gameplay...

The only thing I could complain is bright background setting - it doesnt seem to change anything. Working black background option would be nice. [Edit] It was quite a while ago I first wrote this review, it was on other phone/os version. Background setting is working fine now.

Compared to the other apps out there this one hardly takes up any space. And it's perfect! Very nice to use.

It is free, and you can customize all the settings.
