iPad App Review: Fit Brains Trainer

App Name: Fit Brains Trainer

Cost: Free   

What does it promise? Not tied to any one academic discipline, the Fit Brains Trainer is designed to exercise the brain in a general way.

Does it deliver? Fit Brains Trainer delivers an easy and enjoyable way of keeping cognition sharp. This app provides a collection of fun mind-strengthening games, personalized training sessions and visual tools to help improve the brain’s performance. The app automatically sets each game to the appropriate level.

Fit Brains, developed by Dr. Paul Nussbaum, one of the top clinical neuropsychologists in the U.S., includes more than 360 unique training sessions designed to enhance memory, processing speed, concentration, problem-solving and visual skills.

Can I use it in my classroom?  This is the perfect app to make good use of classroom “down time.” Students will enjoy the games while “working out” their brains and hopefully boosting overall performance.

All apps can be found in the iPad apps store under education.
