Vancouver's Fit Brains announced today that it has reached one million downloads of its Fit Brains Trainer app for iOS since its December release.
According to their press release today, more than 10 million brain training sessions have been completed in the last 60 days and the app has landed the number one spot in the education channel in more than 50 countries.
Fit Brains is up against Goliath Lumosity in the brain fitness category but they are making ground. Unlike Fit Brains, Lumosity has raised significant funding and are spending a chunk of that on advertising. It seems to be paying off as they reportedly sign up 100,000 new users daily and their mobile app gets downloaded 50,000 per day.
The Fit Brains Trainer app brings an entertaining and cognitive training experience to the mobile platform, providing more than 100 unique training sessions that will challenge any user. The mobile trainer utilizes an innovative adaptive learning system that is customized by level and adjusts as a person's performance increases. It is a scientifically designed workout by award-winning neuroscientist Dr. Paul Nussbaum, who says the app's program is developed to sharpen five major areas of the brain: memory, concentration, visual, speed, and problem solving.
Fit Brains Trainer has received more than 8,000 reviews averaging 4.5 stars worldwide, which is higher than any other brain trainer on the market today. Due to the app's success, Fit Brains plans to launch localized versions of the app worldwide as well as on Android devices.
Launched in 2008, Fit Brains has had more than five million people train their brains with over 75 million brain games played. The Fit Brains Trainer app can be downloaded here.
