You probably do a lot to keep yourself physically fit, but what are you doing to exercise your brain? Consider how much your brain does for you: it’s constantly processing information, generating new ideas, forming memories and learning every day.
At the same time, it’s no secret that our memories More degrade over time. Age makes us wiser for sure, but it also makes it harder to recall words and process information. For instance, we often forget where we parked our car, or find it difficult to recall the name of the person we met just a few minutes back. So, training our brain is just as important as keeping physically fit. That’s where brain-training apps come into the picture. Apps like Lumosity, Memorado, Peak, Elevate, and NeuroNation to name a few let you exercise your brain daily with scientifically designed brain games. You just need to spend 10 to 15 minutes a day. To know what is on offer and how exactly these apps work, check out our Cover Story from Page 4.

Third-party keyboards may not be the most exciting apps at first glance, but when you pause for a moment and think about how much time you spend tapping away at your smartphone – their significance becomes pretty clear. Third-party keyboards are now smart enough to learn from your typing style so that you have to type less. Not just that, they even let you type in two languages simultaneously, and customize your keyboard’s appearance the way you want to. So, don’t forget to visit our Utility section to find out more about these keyboard apps and how they work.
