Check your Brain Health with BrainyApp for iPhone

Developers of this smart application are confident that it is the only one, developed for iPhone, which is capable of evaluating, rating, and tracking your brain health. This evidence-based app is claimed to be much more than just brain games! And as it is free to use, feel free to try it.

How brain-healthy do you think you are? BrainyApp will guide you on how to live a brain-healthy lifestyle and show you that what is good for your heart is also good for your brain.

As well as being important for good memory and thinking skills, being brain healthy may also reduce your risk of developing dementia.

To get the most out of BrainyApp, start by taking the Brain Health Survey, which will give you your initial brain health score. You will be able to email yourself your results and feedback on how you went.

You can then regularly add to your score by completing the suggested Activities in BrainyApp. If you’re not doing enough Activities, you’ll see your brain-heart health score decrease.

You can also earn extra points by sharing your score and BrainyApp Facts on Facebook.

BrainyApp has the following features:

  • Brain health survey – see what your brain health score is and get personalized recommendations on what you can do to improve your brain health.
  • Brain games – give your brain a work out.
  • Activities – add to your brain health points with a range of activities including exercise, eating well, getting health checks, keeping your mind active and managing your smoking and alcohol intake.
  • Monitor your Brain Health Points and track your progress over time.
  • Get a daily fact sent to you.
  • Share facts and your brain health scores with friends and family.

BrainyApp was developed by Alzheimer’s Australia and Bupa Health Foundation to raise community awareness of the risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia and on how to live a brain healthy lifestyle.
