Whether it's tuning into Bournvita Quiz Contest as a child or playing Catan as an adult, I have always been drawn to the exciting world of indoor games. And while there's nothing that beats the camaraderie of competition, there's a joy to be found in playing against oneself as well. This is where I turn to Elevate, a fun brain training app with a ton of brain games that are challenging and help me improve myself each day.
Elevate's brain games are divided into four sections - writing, reading, speaking, and math - with games on brevity, transitions, diction, pronunciation, agility, context, proportion, conversion, and more. In all, there are more than 35 categories with levels ranging from novice to expert. I get to play three games each day (five in the pro version) and can also track my performance in each section and see where I rank with regard to other app users. The competition is real, my friend.
What I also dearly love about this app is its user interface. It's very modern and slick and gives me helpful tips whenever I choose the wrong option in a game.
