Peak

Peak is an app for all mobile devices that was created to deliver short and engaging brain training games to busy users. In collaboration with several leaders in the field of neuroplasticity and game design, Peak developers have assembled a suite of games that address cognitive processes in 5 areas: Memory, Focus/Attention, Language, Mental Agility, and Problem Solving. The Apple™ version of Peak also offers games that target processes involved Creativity and Emotion Control. Users complete daily “Workouts” to earn points that allow progress to be tracked and compared to friends and others who use the program. A Pro version is also available for an additional cost that offers an innovative, intensive training regimen that focuses on one cognitive process for 4-5 weeks. Peak and Peak Pro are intended for general users who are looking for quick and easy brain exercises.
