MentalUP

MentalUP is an award-winning brain game app for children between 4 and 13 years with five million users worldwide. It is currently offering its app at a discount to help UK teachers, homeschooler parents and those parents that find themselves working from home and needing to step in as a temporary teacher.

With an average review score of 4.8 in the Google Play Store and App Stores, MentalUP was developed by game designers and academics incorporating innovative teaching methods to offer dozens of mind games with suitable difficulty levels to improve cognitive skills in a gamified format to engage children.  MentalUP also receives a 5 star review from teachers on Educational App Store which is a discovery, review and recommendation platform for educational apps by professionally experienced teachers.

MentalUP believes the ability to solve problems and think in new creative ways is as important as literacy and numeracy skills and they have devised a series of brain games that expose learners to new types of problems and the different ways of thinking required to solve them.  The app addresses five key skills: Attention, Memory, Problem Solving (Logic), Visual and Verbal and includes sub-skills such as counting skills, and geometry.  Importantly it provides a safe space for children as it does not include any adverts, harmful content or in-app purchases.
