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.

An optional premium upgrade is available through a one-time in-app purchase that will remove ads and enable iCloud synchronization across multiple devices.

“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."

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.

- 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.

I’ll rate 5 stars with a few things

One of the first things that I noticed about the app is that you can’t customize, or choose n-back level. There is only position and audio, and I would really like shapes and color to be added.

Second, which is more minor, is that I wish you could press a button again after accidentally tapping it to undo.

Aside from that, it’s a great app! The statistics encourage me to keep going. It’s really nice and convenient to have it on my phone. If these features get added, I’ll rate it 5 stars and buy premium!

Thanks for reading :)
