Elevate app: Stretching your brain

Stretching your brain

Everyone needs a little mental stretch now and then. But if you’re feeling chronically unfocused or in need of a little cognitive pick-me-up, consider Elevate’s quick brain-training program. The app aims to improve your ability to focus, your reading comprehension and memory with a series of quick exercises. The games take only a couple of minutes and are good for mental breaks throughout the workday. Users are rewarded for accuracy and speed and can track progress over time to see whether the program is paying off.

Users can access up to 15 games that are available with a “Pro” subscription, which will cost either $7.99 a month or $49.99 a year. The app is free for iOS and Android devices.
