NeuroSnack uses the latest brain training technique, dual N-Back tests. Scientists have recently found that in about 25 minutes a day, dual N-Back tests can actually increase a person's working memory and fluid intelligence!
• NeuroSnack replicates the scientific tests used to increase brain power.
• Allows for dual and single N-Back tests (i.e. no sound)
• Turn “Picture Mode” on for a more entertaining alternative.
• Scores and progress are tracked.
• Future updates will arrive soon!
Fun app that gives you an edge
Awesome - I'd been waiting to try this out since I read about it in Wired. The app works great and is pretty fun in dual mode. I use it on my commute and I've already had three people ask me about it - they were very intrigued, and it's made me into a promoter for this fluid intelligence building method. Highly recommended.
As another reviewer said the default volume is low and since there's no volume control this thing is unusable in loud places like the subway. It strays from the traditional dual n-back auditory stimuli. Here you get "tango" "x-ray," etc. rather than the "traditional" and tested simple letter sounds. The animated board that disappears between trails is a distraction. Expensive given the fact that there are plenty of free online versions that are more sophisticated. Google "dual n-back task" to learn more.
My brain is working better now!
I read about N-Back tests in "New Scientist" this summer and have been itching to try it. This app does a good job implementing it. Although it may be the placebo effect, after several days of practice I already feel a bit sharper. Overall it was a good investment.
