Impulse - Brain Training Positive Reviews
The best brain training app ever!As someone who struggles with some memory deterioration and constant information overload and who takes mental health very seriously, I always look for ways to improve the neural connections of my brain. After coming across Impulse, I figured I would give it a go. I have just completed the 30-day brain workout plan and feel real improvement now: it becomes easier for me to concentrate on the particular task and my working memory seems to be better as well. Not sure whether the same may be fully related to the use of this app, but I don’t care as long as I see results. I have bought the lifetime plan and consider this as a huge investment in my mental health.
Planning to start a new workout but not sure whether to go for 30 or for 10 days. It would be great to see some recommendations after finishing the 30-day plan.
Also, I enjoy solving brain-teasers a lot. Just a small suggestion here - would be really interesting to see how other players answered to brain-teasers.
The only thing I wish this app have is more training areas, like creativity, brain speed, etc. Also would appreciate more games and exercises (still, worth to mention that the developer adds new content regularly).
So, it’s a legit app and thank you for creating it..Version: 1.7.12
Love this app!I don’t usually write reviews, but in this case, I decided to make an exception. So glad I came across this app a few weeks ago! Thanks to it I finally realized how poor my math skills are... But the thing is they were not like this all the time! Back at school, I was really good at math, not the best in the class, but really good! And look at what happened... I avoided doing some simple math on my own, thinking it would save me some time (or maybe I was just lazy), and as a result, having faced the tasks in Impulse math category, I saw how big my problem is. Huge, actually. The tasks and the games are not that difficult, they really aren’t. And back in the day, they would be a piece of cake for me. And now it feels like starting all over... But the good thing is that doing it with the app helps! I’ve been getting better and hope for more results!
My only suggestion would be to include more games to the Language category, just like Math it seems really useful. Oh, and the math lessons! They’re amazing! But it took me time to find them. Thank you!!!.Version: 1.7.12
Amazing brain workouts!!!!I didn’t expect I need anything like Impulse, but after watching the ad on Instagram I decided to try. And I’m so happy I saw that add!! The app is amazing, user experience is so neat and the color scheme is perfect. What i like the most is that I only need 5 min per day to stretch my brain muscle. So I complete daily brain sessions and feel really better (on a 17th training day now). Pricing is a bit tough in case of taking a monthly subscription, but I successfully utilized the Christmas offer the app proposed. Just for the price of 4 cups of coffee I now can have lifelong brain training!! I would advise the developer to add some brain music and sounds, say for focus, productivity, concentration (I personally consider this to be crucial for effective working or studying). Apart from that, are you planning to add some training streaks? I noticed in other apps that this feature motivates me the most. But anyway the app is great and i recommended it to my friends and family (and i’m not the type of a person to recommend every stuff i see).Version: 1.7.12
How much I like itSo far I have played the game for two days and I like the fact of being challenged . and not knowing what to expect next. This game so far seems to give me a challenge based off of things that we have to deal with every day in daily life issues. Whether those things are good things or bad things, things that you have to ponder on etc. it challenged you and took you out of your zone that you may have been in at that moment. I’m looking forward to learning new things expanding my brain span ,and being challenged daily, because what I’m beginning to see go on in this world… we need to stay woke ,and pay attention to what’s actually happening before our eyes while being distracted with daily nuances. So we all need things that we can focus in on daily, to help keep us focused on what’s important .I think this game will be a segue into that for lots of people that find it hard to multitask at times, becauseWe get distracted. Being able to focus is important for anything that we do in life, and I think that this game is just fun tool that could help..Version: 1.22
Useful appAn amazing discovery for all those who search for self-improvement. I wanted to use my time in commute in an efficient and fun way and that's why I searched for brain games in the first place. Impulse absolutely lived up to my expectations! I love their workouts - a little bit of work every day gives me a sense of fulfillment, it's not that I just played some goofy game on the phone, I actually DID something to develop my memory and improve focus. One thing to consider there is the brain-boosting habits, maybe it's worth paying more attention to them? Very often they seem appropriate and cool, but since they're not explained or anything, I just ignore them.
If the workout is not enough for me, I can always go to the games and spend as much time as I want playing whatever game I like. My favorite category is Focus, so I play it the most, and recently I noticed that it became easier for me to concentrate at work. Probably, I'll try to binge-play other categories as well, hope the results will be just as good!.Version: 1.7.12
Pretty Fun and UsefulI’ve been using the app for a couple weeks and really enjoy it. The games are pretty unique and helped me understand what skills I’m good at and which ones I need to train more. I like that the “Progress” section shows you the average score for each category and specific game. I think it would definitely be nice to see the average score based on training skill too. For example, I noticed that my “Selective Attention” was high based on the high scores I got in a few games. I also noticed my “Working Memory” wasn’t as high based on some lower scoring games. I think it would definitely help seeing that in the “Progress” section so we can keep in mind what we need to work on. Maybe even some links to research articles or something for each training skill would be useful too.Version: 1.21.6
Great for restarting your mind!I had multiple heart attacks in 2004 & 2006. After that I was put on disability which was f course in that time frame was the opioid epidemic that still rages on beyond this steroidal cold & flu (China virus). After my heart started to straighten out in 2017, I got clean and I’m back to working full time. Something is foggy in my brain though. I’m startled very easily and my concentration is far from what it used to be. These tools are helping ease my mind, use it again like a muscle, and all around better my life. I appreciate apps like this and the minds that went into the process of thinking about healing a dysfunctional mindset. Thanks!.Version: 1.22
Good gameI think this is a really good game and it makes me happy that they ask for feedback because it feels like they actually care about the people playing the games. I like that i can play this for free with ads but also if i didn’t want ads i could pay for a subscription. i also like that if they do include ads they don’t bombard you. the games are challenging but not too challenging to the point where i can’t play. it makes me feel accomplished when i do play a game and get it right because i actually have to use my brain to figure it out. definitely one of my new favorite apps.Version: 1.21.10
Training Your Brain Is Fun Not WorkI’m 59 and I’m a college graduate and I found to my surprise that the app is fun and my brain can definitely use some training. My IQ has been tested at above average before college and then I took the IQ test in the app and I am only at the average level yet it only took me two days to get back to the point I was as a youngster but I can see where I can benefit from further training. I can see I slipped because since I’m disabled now and unable to work any longer and I’m not using my brain the way I used to I have lost the edge. Well this app makes it fun to see if I can get that edge back..Version: 1.21.8
Something to smile atAt work I have open space at random times while I wait for customers, so having a game to play in the meantime that’s got variety makes the day more enjoyable! The visuals are also very pleasing, it’s not the most funky app but the simplicity is nice, it’s different than what I’m normally around. It also keeps track of the days you’ve done in a week, which I am not personally the biggest fan of but I’m sure someone would appreciate it. There is additional practices/games able to play for cash, but even then the free ones are enough to appreciate the app..Version: 1.21.10
Thankful for this app!!I never normally leave reviews, but I was very impressed by this app! In July I was in a severe car accident and had a traumatic brain injury along with other things. I’ve been dealing with memory issues since then, and became afraid and anxious for quite a while. I got this app just to see if it would do anything and I can honestly say that after using this app for a while it has helped me tremendously. So thank you!!.Version: 1.21.10
Great Training for the BrainI believe this app is entertaining and educational in a sense that it will activate your learning capabilities. For example, memory, critical thinking, consistency, and it will even help you do math without having the calculator as your slave. The game about tracing the figure it my absolute favorite. It’s challenging but entertaining and helps you figure out different ways to solve a puzzle which in life concludes to figuring out different solutions to a problem. I would give a try and if you see improvement in yourself or your child I would consider purchasing it. Thank you..Version: 1.21.10
Tower of Hanoi Level 14 Slowdown Glitch?YOU GUYS... you cannot just delete an app that you have subscribed to and think it goes away... you have to actually go to subscriptions and cancel the subscription before the free trial period ends if that’s what you choose to do.
Anyway I downloaded this for the tower of Hanoi game. My complaint is that at level 14, it doesn’t move quickly when you tap it and instead it auto moves and you have to wait almost a minute to move the ring from one spot to another. This doesn’t make sense with a timed game. I would like to get to level 30 but can’t if it’s gonna be this slow. Is it a glitch?.Version: 1.8.3
There’s so much to choose fromSome brain training apps have you doing the same thing over and over again but not this one! This one keeps you guessing and I love that. I feel like it engages different areas of your brain in one session. There’s been a noticeable improvement in my immediate recollection. As long as you put in the work you will see the results..Version: 1.22
Fine but annoying ads and Already found bugsSo my first time using this app the games are fun and interesting but the ads between every game get annoying and their other apps very similar on the market for free where you can do three games free a day without any ads and the game already glitched out I was playing the ancient numbers game and every time you finish it. it doesn’t actually take you to the home screen or tell you what you scored it just freezes on the zero time left and doesn’t progress.Version: 1.9.5
Very impressedAs someone who use to take pride in their mental math ability, I realized that it began to slip due to lack of use. Luckily this app helps me brush up on my skills. This is just one of the many facets of this app. Anyone who is looking for mental test to help with things like memory this is the app for you. On top of all of that, this app can also just be a puzzle app as there is a section fun of fun puzzle games..Version: 1.21.8
Great for TBI or PCSI have a TBI and lost 20pts on my IQ. I do a little bit of this every night. It makes my brain tired but I feel like it’s working. Plus it lets you know if you are improving. I was also interested in what ones I struggled with. I don’t know why. It would be nice if they told you on here what part of your brain focuses on a skill or even more diagnostic things..Version: 1.21.10
It’s fun not boring at allYou know you have those days when you are bored and you just don’t want to do the same boring stuff all over again, well this app makes your time fun you feel active. It will also improve your mind it doesn’t matter if it’s easy level you brain is making function..Version: 1.21.10
ImpulseSo, hi :) I’ve been someone who has been stuck doing work and video games almost everyday, never with the motivation to improve myself and I felt my brain was loosing the capability to process things with good functionality as it used to when I would go to school. So having this app is making me feel like I am slowly bringing that back :).Version: 1.21.8
Love the games, not so in love with my brain.Strike that, I do love my brain… this game is just here to make me awesomely aware of areas of improvement, areas that have been neglected, and most certainly avoided. As my wise, energetic age 83 grandmother says: the more you do, the more you can do.
If the brain is a muscle, as they say… then Impulse is a mental gym membership offering guaranteed results. Here’s to still growing..Version: 1.21.8
Great for preparing for my personal study seasonsI love to learn and the only thing that helped was watching repeat Jeopardy shows. This app is insane and I’m addicted. I can’t stop playing! My memory has improved and my thinking has improved. Thank you for developing this app its a lot better than the Mensa app I purchased 8 years ago..Version: 1.21.8
Love it.Apart of being healthy is not just a healthy body but also a healthy brain and this app can help with that. This app is full of fun and great challenges that keep you on your toes. After a few weeks I feel like a can handle the mental grind and have more clarity throughout the day. I recommend it even if it’s just for fun..Version: 1.22.1
Trial ends in 3 daysMost apps mentions to the consumer that there will be a free trial for certain days before they download the app. But this is not the case. It was surprising to be locked out after day 3! Also, other similar apps allows limited daily workouts for those who don’t wish to go premium. They would still have access to several games daily but not the privilege to access all games..
The quality and diversity of games is great!.Version: 1.3.5
Impulse gameI really enjoy playing this game. It makes you think, and it gets your brain going. I would recommend this game to anyone over the age of 5. It helps with different Types of weaknesses, that you would like to work on. It helps you focus, and helps u get better at anything you need to work on..Version: 1.22
LoveI absolutely love the challenge of the games and better yet, the look of the app is very nice and sophisticated. Every day there are different games and makes it much more exciting. After completing your daily dose of games you still have the option to play more if you wished to. Definitely recommend..Version: 1.9.9
Good but a bit scammy.When you initially download the game it presents 3 subscription options making you think you have to pick one. That’s a bit shady if you ask me.
Now if you didn’t fall for the subscription choices you can have an ad supported free version.
I completely understand the need for ads on a free version and am not saying there shouldn’t be. That ad to game ratio is a bit much though..Version: 1.22.1
How to cancel weekly membership?Just would like to know how to cancel my weekly membership or switch to lifetime....Version: 1.7.14
