Option to turn sound off?

The games are OK, and I'm sure they run better on more modern devices (using RAZRi). There is no option to turn the sound off, and the link between the general device tones volume seems to no longer work after this update.

Poor design

I was told to expect a certain game but got the same game 5 times in a row! Which was boring to say the least. At the end it had recorded that I'd only played two games and then said not enough data for a score! Useless app.


The spacial rotation game sometimes displays the pattern rotated in more than one possible angle of rotation, but doesn't say pick 90°, 180°, 270°. So picking the right one is down to luck. The rolling ball game needs a calibration feature; it's horribly imprecise. Mood is a big factor and this game tends to annoy me, than please me.

The app is very bugged. Very. Example one: the tilt your device game - sometimes the ball would roll off the edge of the screen and completely disappear, to be never seen again. Example two: when it successfuly searches for a new game, after allowing the user to press "begin" the screen immediately switches back to the tilt your phone to find the hidden spot game. Until these bugs are fixes, I can only give it a 1/5 no matter how much potential the app has.

The ball game is a total disgrace. This app is designed for a rotary disc telephone, it doesn't use any of the sensors in a smartphone.

Great overall - effective, simple design. Only trouble is the rolling ball game: doesn't perfectly respond to movement. Otherwise great app to help you re-focus when you're feeling a little sluggish and contributes to research.

About the app

Brainwave is a free, research focused psychology app from The Open University and Reed.We’ve taken five tasks from the world of psychology research and turned them into quick, fun, mobile phone/tablet games. Each game is designed to test a different facet of cognitive ability:- Super snap (Working memory)- Track (Split attention)- React (Vigilance)- Spin (Spatial processing)- Hotspot (Learning)By playing the games, you will build up a profile of your performance across the day—your ‘Brainwave’—charting how your cognitive performance varies across the day and finally answering whether you are actually a ‘morning’ or ‘evening’ person.Your scores will also be anonymised and uploaded to the research team at The Open University. Here, they will be combined with scores from all the other users of the app in order to research how circadian rhythms and time-of-day affects cognitive performance To see whether you are a morning or evening person, download the app now!
