Martin and his team have been hard at work revising Brain Fitness Pro and getting Version 2.0 ready to go. While it won’t be out for a few months, those of you using the Windows version can now upgrade to Version 1.2 which has some newly added features.
Full screen training mode so you can maximize the program to allow for larger, easy to see blocks.
Practice mode where you can work on your trouble areas separately to improve overall performance and get to that next level. This is also a fantastic addition for new users who are having trouble getting the hang of training.
You can choose to work on aural training, visual training or the classic combination. You set the n-back level yourself and can choose from 2 (the easiest) to 20 (ouch!). There’s also a new speed setting that you can set to very slow, slow or normal. On top of that, you are given a Match Feedback Option where the program will display a green checkmark when a correct match is shown.
Continuous training profiles so you can track and measure your progress for as long as you use Brain Fitness Pro. No more starting a new profile each time you complete the 19 day block.
Choice of arrow keys or regular ‘A’ and ‘L’ keyboard input for matches. Some of you didn’t like (or were confused by) the use of the ‘A’ and ‘L’ keys. Now you can simply use the left or right arrows.
In depth stats that give you greater insight to your training progress.
One of the major perks to being a Mind Sparke user is that the upgrades are free! If you are a current MindSparke (PC version) user, you should have received an email from the company containing a link to download your upgrade. The email came out about a week ago, so check your spam folder if you don’t see it in your inbox. If you still can’t find it, email me here and I’ll pass your information on to Martin so he can take care of you.
Note for Brain Fitness Pro Jr. users:
The Jr. version also has an upgrade and you can find it in the same email.
The MAC upgrade isn’t ready yet but hopefully will go live in a few months. Your version already offers a re-sizable screen and block by block stats, but the other features will be added in the upcoming release. Watch your email box, and I’ll also post an update here on the site when it’s available.
If you have any questions or feedback, please post them in the comments below. If you’d rather speak privately, you can always send me an email!
