Mind Games Android
Exercise Your Brain! Mind Games is a great collection of games based in part on principles derived from cognitive tasks to help you practice different mental skills. This app includes nearly 3 dozen of Mindware’s brain training games (some of which allow you to play 3 times and require upgrading to play more). All games include your score history and graph of your progress. The games list shows a summary of your best games and today’s scores on all games. Using some principles from standardized testing, your scores are also converted to a comparison scale so that you can see where you need work and excel.
Mind Games is also now available on iPhone/iPad and Windows.
Mind Games is intended to be brain challenging entertainment. No scientific research has yet been conducted to determine if this app has cognitive benefits. Many users of the app report finding it helpful and beneficial as you can see in the user comments.
