What It Is: A games website that makes you smarter -- no, really, that's the whole point of it. Lumosity consists of 'brain training' exercises, which are basically games based on neurological science formed through affiliations with Harvard, Stanford and UC Berkeley. Aimed at improving everything from memory to thinking speed, once you sign up for the site and choose a course, it sets you up with a training regimen -- not unlike that piece of paper the personal trainer handed you at the gym after your free evaluation.

What's In It: There are 35 games (and apparently more being added) that get dealt out in an assorted manner. The regimen gives you five games to play per day, for a total of 15 minutes, but you can keep going well past that if you so choose. One day it might be Face Memory Workout (to help remember people's names), the next it could be Penguin Pursuit (to gain a better sense of direction).

Most interestingly, the site offers specified courses for medical conditions, including ADD, cancer recovery and PTSD. These are developed by scientists to target the particular issues faced by each of these conditions.

I found this one fun at first but I always forget to play it and i get frustrated that you can't move on quickly. I'm not sure I'd consider it a "recovery app", more of a "something to do while I'm pooping" app.
