"Unlock it naturally but training your mind"

Reviewed by / Feb 08, 2013

Solve simple equations and unlock your phone

Unlock Your Brain is a puzzle game for Android, a brain trainer application that improves your math skills in a simple but extremely efficient way.

How does it work? The app replaces your lockscreen with an arithmetic operation, which requires you to solve it in order to use your phone properly. This way, if you unlock your phone about 50 times a day, you will solve math operations 50 times a day, which will definitely help your concentration and logic skills improve.

Set the Unlock Your Brain as default launcher and start training your brain every day, even if you don't want to. The only disadvantage is that with the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the lock screen is not viewed properly, some of the numbers aren't clear and this should be fixed inmediately, although it works well in other devices.

UNLOCKYOURBRAIN is the developer of this helpful mind trainer, a useful math app that even has other features

* Still thirsty for more? Put in an extra workout by challenging yourself or others in Practice Mode

* Includes Addition. Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division available for purchase in the app.

    Great app but it would be better with an example sentence at least in the practice mode. Sometimes lock screen doesn't appear or it flashes for a second without giving me time to answer. How can I compete with friends? Please add more advanced German packs ^^

    Pros: Learn a little bit every time you check Tumblr or whatever. Cons: Not to easy to make your own questions. Really like it though, nice!

    After just a couple of weeks with UnlockYourBrain, I confirm - words simply stack in my head :) Learning instantly became effortless - you don't even realize it's happening. Thank you, keep up the great work! Two suggestions: example sentence field for every word and better design of both app and widget (hopefully, material redesign is coming soon).
