Elevate – a brain training app with real world consequences



You may remember when brain training was all the rage. You'd buy a handheld games console, and then use what would otherwise be downtime staring out of the window or at the TV to engage in a range of game-like exercises to speed up those synapses. TV ads liked to show older people gaming away to stop their minds getting addled.

Well, brain training was around as an idea way before handheld games consoles made it trendy, and it has not gone away just because those irritating TV ads have. There are plenty of apps aimed at helping you hone a few skills, and Elevate is one. Game-like activities aim to give your brain a workout, and the app adjusts itself over time so that it can better meet your needs and work on the areas that require attention.

Elevate is rather more focused on professionals than some other brain training apps, so the blurb about the app in both the Android and iOS stores says: "With regular training, Elevate will help you improve critical cognitive skills that are proven to boost productivity, earning power, and self-confidence." Yes, earning power, no less...

The app covers no fewer than fifteen areas: Agility, memory, clarity, precision, error avoidance, brevity, refinement, context, syntax, visualisation, processing, focus, comprehension, connotation, and inversion. Don't know what half of those are? Get the app and find out!
