We show you the five best applications to exercise memory and attention in an easy and entertaining way with your mobile anywhere and at any time.
It’s normal: over the years we all lose a bit of memory. But why does this happen? Let’s think of the brain as another muscle… if we don’t exercise it, it atrophies. When we are students we have better exercised memory , as well as when we carry out certain jobs that require enormous memory and concentration.
But it is very important that we practice certain exercises on a daily basis and from a very early age if we want to keep our brain always at its best, in the best conditions. And you can do it in a super entertaining and versatile way with mobile applications : this way, you can exercise your mind while having a fun time on the subway, at home lying on the sofa, in your spare time at work, in the Beach…
Let’s see the top 5 apps to practice your memory .
We start with Skillz, one of the most entertaining and fun of our compilation. It is an application that includes different types of games that help you improve memory , train your sense of reflex, increase precision, increase speed, learn color coordination… Come on, it’s super complete.
“Find the same cards”, “Identify the wheel that is spinning faster” or “Which line is longer” are some of the dozens of games that you can find in the app. In addition, many of them are multiplayer , so you can train your memory and other skills while playing with a friend.
After completing the level, your results will go from 1 to 5 stars : for each star you will be given one of their points, called Brains. And you can use them to:
- Repeat from the present round
