This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
THIS IS A SERIOUS GAME. It will improve your working memory and helps you solve problems faster. It's also fun but not in the way you would expect. Reaching new levels in the game is incredibly satisfying.

** CUSTOMER REVIEWS **
“I hate it...BUT I LOVE IT. The first time I played, I felt like I was learning to walk. It was awkward and I made a lot of mistakes. But then it slowly started to make more sense and suddenly I saw the utility in the app. It's hard but hard is good. Train your brain. Get this app..."
“Easily playable and understandable interface"
“Muy buen juego para incrementar tu memoria y tu coeficiente intelectual."
** WHAT IS DUAL N-BACK **
Dual N-Back exercise is a scientifically proven way of improving your fluid intelligence. Fluid intelligence refers to the ability to reason and to solve new problems independently of previously acquired knowledge. More information about the science from the support page.
** FEATURES **
- Simple but challenging gameplay
- Graphical statistics with daily progress and trend line
- Helpful gameplay animations and tips explaining all you need to know about dual N-back
The idea is to remember sequentially spoken letters and positions of a square. The sequence length is increased or lowered for the next round depending how well you are doing.
You will advance to your current top performance level quite fast and it takes some persistence to get to the next level. On the other hand, the length of the sequence (i.e. difficult level) for each round is deliberately changed quite easily so that there is minimal change to develop automatic processes and task-specific strategies which are actually not increasing your fluid intelligence in the long run.
An optional premium upgrade is available through a one-time in-app purchase that will remove ads and enable iCloud synchronization across multiple devices.
What's New in Version 2.3.6
- For Premium users: new graph for daily max N in statistics
- Fixed issue where stats and current level is reset when the device is not logged in to iCloud
- Other minor bug fixes
The only good free dual n-back app
There appear to a number of paid dual n-back apps out there, but this is the only one I've found that is solely ad-supported. It's minimal, doesn't let you change sound sets or do any other customization but it's free! And it works great. Totally solid!
I would love the ability to change sound sets though, as a musician I'd like to be able to use notes of the scale instead of letters.
Still The Best
This app gets better with each update! Of all the apps that offer a dual n-back exercise, this is by far the nicest. It is well maintained and offers some very nice features. Highly recommend it.
Great for focus and memory
It’s a great app and if yo do N-back regularly it will improve your memory and focus a lot.
Feature request: It would be great if you could export your stats to csv or excel format and upload it to your computer.
