We spend a great deal of time focusing on maintaining physical health, flexibility, stamina and endurance. These are all major areas of continuous self-improvement. However, it is equally important not to forget the crucial areas of our brain and mental fitness in keeping ourselves in tip-top shape from head to toe. Doctors have stated the importance of keeping your mind alert by completing puzzles and activities of all kinds on a daily basis. This is no old wive's tale and is purely scientific. So what can you do to maintain the agility and flexibility of the mind of yourself, family and friends?

Look no further than CogniFit Brain Fitness for iPad. This very noteworthy and scientific app uses specific technology to keep your mind alert, fit and working to its peak ability. CogniFit is available on the App Store for both iPhone and iPad; however, this review is about the iPad version. Using the beautiful retina display with large, clear and sharp graphics is the perfect way to experience this app. Let's take a look at some of the intelligent features of this health and fitness, brain power training iPad app:

- Train your brain on the go
: Assess yourself and discover your cognitive and mental health

- Get personalized results for key cognitive abilities such as your memory, focus and attention

- Train with the CogniFit patented personalized training or decide to play single games

- Compare your scores with others if you wish
- Challenge and play with your friends and other from around the world
- Get new neurons each time you train and unlock additional features
- Cognitive skills and abilities you will train include:
        Auditory Short-Term Memory, Contextual Memory, Distance Estimation, Divided Attention, Focus, Eye-Hand Coordination, Response Time, Spatial Perception and many other crucial abilities


Start Training to learn how to use this app. There are simple but helpful instructions along with a graphic explaining the required skills for each task. For instance when I trained on Word Quest, skills included: Working Memory, Divided Attention, Spatial Perception and Planning. I was presented with a word box puzzle in which I had to find the hidden words based on the corresponding graphics. The Aztec style images are authentic looking stone and symbols and wording is easy to read. The next training item was Mouse Challenge in which you must tap quickly on items in a specific order. Hit the big red button at the correct time to eliminate the cows. If you tilt your device, the cross-hair will move over each animal. Other games included are: Crossroads, Fuel a Car, Jigsaw, Mahjong, Whack-A-Mole and Words Birds. Once I had completed Training, a summary was displayed on the status of my abilities. Let me say I definitely intend to improve my mental acuity!

Now on to more fun and brain teasing! I picked the activity named Crossroads to further stimulate my mind. At this point, you can Create a Challenge with a friend, or Play without Neurons. Cognitive skills involved were: Updating, Visual Scanning and Focus. I chose to Play without Neurons. In this activity, prevent rolling balls from colliding by tapping them when two approach an intersection in a head-on collision course. Glossy colored balls on turf with a board comprised of grid stones roll at their own momentum. Be quick to tap and avoid a collision! This is an exciting physics puzzler game reminding me that everyone in the family can fully enjoy these mind and flexibility games. Eye catching graphics and smooth operations make each activity a joy!

How can CogniFit Brain Fitness for iPad benefit you? Use it to possibly aid in the prevention of Alzheimer's Disease, Dementia, Parkinsons, ADHD, Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological diseases. In fact, Cognifit has been reviewed in many scientific publications which recognize the huge benefits of these health activities. One example of published acclaim is in the following paragraph on their site: "Shatil E, Korczyn AD, Peretzc C, et al. - Improving cognitive performance in elderly subjects using computerized cognitive training - Alzheimer's & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association 2008; 4(4):T492". There are many more testimonials from well recognized associations.

Use this app to continue the training and learning benefits provided on the Cognifit site. Combing through the scientific information on the site will have you totally convinced in no time of the huge health and mental benefits of CogniFit. After all, "Active brain cells receive more blood and stimulate the migration of beneficial brain-stem cells". Being able to play smartly on your iPad and benefiting from each task is only one more medical claim to fame for this device. Once you have used CogniFit to coax your mind to higher intelligence, you will soon have a daily routine which includes all the well-created and highly functional included activities.



COOL CONCLUSION: Physical and mental fitness is easily achieved and sustained for the young and old when using CogniFit Brain Fitness to challenge and focus cognitive abilities on performing each task.
