BrainHQ App Details

Train your brain with BrainHQ from Posit Science—the most rigorous program available for better brain health, and the only one backed by more than 100 scientific papers showing benefits - including the breakthrough NIH-funded ACTIVE study. Now with new features that contribute to your brain fitness success!

 BrainHQ represents the culmination of 30 years of research in neuroscience and brain health. Top scientists from around the world helped to develop and test the BrainHQ exercises. The result: a training system that comprehensively improves brain performance, from the most basic elements of perception through the most complex elements of memory, attention, and cognitive function.

 No other brain fitness program can match BrainHQ in scientific proof. More than 100 publications from independent, randomized controlled trials have shown that the exercises and assessments in BrainHQ drive real change. These changes include: • cognitive improvements, such as better memory and faster processing speed • real-world improvements, including safer driving and improved quality of life • physical brain changes, like healthier white matter and more coordinated neurons. 
 All of this means that BrainHQ works—in laboratory studies, and in the lives of everyday people:

 •"BrainHQ is a no-brainer must-have in my book…This training has expanded my visual, fine-tuned my audio and even my reflexes seem to be getting faster. BrainHQ is fun and gives me the challenges I need to keep my brain working out on a daily basis." - C. MacDonald

 •"Only a few months into the BrainHQ exercises the difference is clear, this isn’t left to speculation, I saw drastic improvements…and my family has noticed a strong improvement." - A. Amitrano

 And leading publications agree: “Our testers concluded that Posit's product—one of the few so far to undergo clinical trials and peer-reviewed research—had the firmest scientific grounding.” - Wall Street Journal
 The BrainHQ app helps you set and achieve your brain training goals—so it not only works, it works for you.
 Each exercise adapts to your performance and gets more challenging as your performance improves, just like a personal trainer for your brain.
 The training is designed to fit into your life: train for just 5 minutes in your spare time, or do a complete workout in an hour. 
BrainHQ is a free download, and includes a free exercise every day.

App Reviews

  • Don’t buy it, it’s ridiculous trying to unsubscribe!

    By cyndog1
    Don’t buy, unless you want to feel manipulated by Apple again
  • Yashara Price

    By YasharaP
    I had a stroke four years ago, and I had to relearn everything: talking, walking, spelling, typing, cooking, counting money, I could go on, but you get the idea. Anyway, this is the best app I could find - and I’ve tried ALOT! Thank you, Dr Mercola and BrainHQ!
  • Overall Review

    By Hi-Mesa
    First, I wish there were more explanations. Why is the smaller score better. When can I try a different exercise? Do I have to get a perfect score first? What if I absolutely hate the first exercise? Finally, why are my beginning exercises different from those of my sister’s.?
  • Freezes up and can’t use. Waste of money. Do NOT purchase

    By SLW1894
    This game is a waste of money. Buyer beware. Freezes and can’t use. One stare is way too much.
  • No fun, no help, impossible to cancel

    By NOCsDiva
    This app becomes tiresome after a short while. Other logic games are much more helpful and much cheaper. What is most difficult is trying to get the maker’s help in trying to cancel a subscription. I was very disappointed in them and the repetition of their games and lack of challenge and variety after a certain point. Not enough customer input was allowed. They lock you into a contract with no easy way to cancel and hasn’t upgraded to the latest release. I feel ripped off, and I want out. They maintain I’m on the hook till 8/18. Apple needs to help.

  • Boring, tedious games; poor customer service

    By Graycgames
    The games may be beneficial to some, but they are boring, tedious and repetitious. I bought the full version (about $97) because their web site offered a 30 day money back guarantee. When I asked for a refund, I was informed that they were unable to fulfill their guarantee because I purchased it through the App Store (which is how most people purchase their apps). Have you ever tried to get a refund through the App Store? Good luck! Don’t waste your time and money.
  • Does not support family sharing

    By Grammy150
    The developers of the app say that you must buy individual subscriptions despite the fact that their app information on the App store says it supports family sharing for up to six users. It is very disappointing.
  • Sound on App was not working

    By Mmmkkkklllljjjj
    I downloaded this brain app bc of the high average review but once i began the first exercise in which listening was the focal point, no sound was coming from it. The sound of the phone was on the highest setting and even then no sound came out. Such a disappointment!
  • Finally get it

    By EarningsBarrage
    This app actually helps develop your brain’s capabilities. I thought brain games were a waste of time. This one measures how you are improving and makes you do things that it first make your brain hurt and then hum.
  • I would give it five stars.

    By Freestyle Diva
    It’s a great app except the screen only works from left too right. Not up and downward. I have an IPhone normally I can just simply turn my phone in any direction🤷🏽‍♂️ I do not have that option, also some of the brain trainings the items are way too small too view.
