Learning on the Lockscreen

Getting better – just like that

Imagine brain training came to you as naturally as breathing, walking and talking.

Imagine you could learn four new words in a foreign language a day - by integrating it into your every day life. Imagine you could improve your logical thinking and math skills with no effort.

Imagine you could train your brain everywhere: on the bus, at the beach, during work and during your breaks.

That's UnlockYourBrain. Your unlock screen becomes your training center. You unlock your phone 60 times a day? Now you can train your brain 60 times a day!
