    "The app works well and offers some good information. My problem with it, is that I feel it is no different than the other health apps I have on my phone. Even though I have used it a few times, I do not feel the need to jump over to it for my daily fitness app. "

    "Based on scientific research and reporting to have a large amount of levels, Cognifit is a fair entry into the brain training game/application space on mobile devices. Cognifit has a fairly intuitive design and User interface and it seems to do its job as it is advertised. "

    "I like how this is from Rosetta Stone, which is a know company. I am alsways looking for fun things to do in my spare time. It says that 18 million people have this app. I am very familar with Brain Gym. With kids and adults mind stimulating activities really work. It gets the oxygen flowing in your brain. The current versoion has 4/5 strars, but all versions have 4.5/5 stars. With any new version there are kinks to work out. This sounds like something that I would like to try as a possible alternative to Brian Gym."
