Do you want to sharpen up your mental agility and perception with a fun daily workout? The new Mensa Brain Training app can target those areas where the brain needs most attention - memory, concentration, agility, perception and reasoning.

The app is the definitive daily workout for the brain and has been developed by Barnstorm Games in association with the high IQ society. It is available now for iOS with a free seven-day trial.

John Stevenage, chief executive of British Mensa, said: “Mensa Brain Training is a fun way to keep your mind sharp, using the latest technology."

The Mensa Brain Training App can be downloaded from the App Store and trialled free for seven days; users can play challenging exercises developed by industry experts and accredited by Mensa. 

Research has suggested that regular brain training can significantly enhance fluid intelligence, which is the fundamental human ability to reason, detect patterns and learn. 

A subscription will allow users to check their personal progress with the Mensa Brain Index (MBI), and see their global percentile for each of the five disciplines.  Players are able to choose a subscription plan that suits them: £4.49/€5.99 for three months, £7.99/€9.99 for one year and £11.99/€15.99 for two years.

Simon Jeffrey, CEO of Barnstorm Games, said: “The brain training market on iOS has exploded since we launched Mensa Brain Test back in 2010. 

“Our approach with this app is quite different; we’ve seen that consumers want to test themselves, however Mensa Brain Training is also about cultivating improvement and keeping the brain fit and healthy with regular exercise, in much the same way as you might your body."

The new title continues Barnstorm’s successful relationship with Mensa that started with the App Store Staff Favourite, and No 1 Entertainment App (in 17 countries), Mensa Brain Test.
