Elevate for iPhone: #App Review


Elevate for iPhone: #App Review


I was browsing through the iPhone App Store to see what new apps were being offered and I found this one. It intrigued me because I am always looking for ways to keep my brain in shape and functioning well. Yeah, I need all the help I can get.

Like all apps these days you can make in app purchases to gain further functionality. I am not departing from my FREE requirement so no in app purchases for me.

Your opening screen.

Elevate Opening Screen


I chose ‘Get Started’ because I did not already have an account. From there my choices were to log in with Facebook or Sign Up with e-mail. I chose to sign up with e-mail. I never choose Facebook. Just my personal preference.

Log In Options

You then need to select those skills you want to improve.

How did I do? I pretty much sucked.



Since I chose not to make in app purchases the settings screen really served no purpose for me.

What did I learn from this experiment? I have always been a slow reader and I still am. However, the exercise in this app might actually help me improve. I did not make it to the third level of exercises because I lost all of my lives before I could get there. Big sigh…

If you have an iPhone, you might give this FREE app a try. Perhaps you already have tried it. What did you think? How did you do?

    LOL! This is pretty cool! I don't have an Iphone but I do utilize Lumosity daily on my PC. Same intention…sharpen mental acuity, strengthen what you want to. Practice, right?

    Hmm. Wish I had the time. As it is, there are three apps on my desktop to learn Spanish. Haven't opened them since the first try and the first lesson is obliterated from my brain!

    This is interesting. I can always use a brain boost!

  4. I'm a sucker for this kind of learning. I belong to Luminosity, BrainHQ, and even have Luminosity on my iPhone. For sure this one sounds worthwhile to give a try. Thanks Cheryl.

    I would totally give this a try. Educational software keeps getting better and better 🙂

  6. I have looked at a few apps like this in the past. But many of them tended to be less than stellar without purchasing additional content. The sad thing is the content they did offer for testing the app did little to entice me to buy more.

  7. That was kinda cool. I might enjoy this one. I have so many apps that I don't use, I need to clear them out to give this one a try… LOL.
