    IQ-Test Here's a pretty straightforward tool to improve your IQ, an IQ app for iPhone. Fully consistent with the standards of IQ testing, this app challenges you to answer various questions with a limited amount of time, then calculates your IQ after you're done with the testing. The app is very practical and easy to use. It lets you take a break during the test and then continue where you left off. It also lets you pass over any questions then go back to them later. Another nice feature is that the app lets you compare your IQ score with famous people. The app also has a nice user interface as well as lively sound effects. (Price: $0.99) (Download link)

    IQ Test - Calculate Your IQ Now

    iq tes This is the third iPhone IQ app on our list with the same simple title. I'm beginning to think that our iPhone developers don't have high enough IQs to come up with more creative titles for their iPhone IQ apps. But they are probably too busy perfecting their apps. Anyway, this app lets you calculate your IQ in just a few minutes and then lets you compare your score to others who have used the app. To make the app more credible, it was developed under the supervision of psychologists, so you are pretty much sure that the app will accurately measure your IQ. The app features 50 items that test your logical, spatial, mathematical and memory intelligence. (Price: $0.99) (Download link)

    IQ Test Master

    IQ Test What makes this iPhone IQ app great is the fact that it lets you know your IQ while having fun at the same time. It's a well designed iPhone app that can measure your IQ level through the use of language independent, purely logical questions. The app's use of nice graphics is an additional incentive to use the app. The app requires you to answer 40 questions with varying degrees of difficulty. You have to finish the test in 40 minutes or less. To make sure that you don't get to memorize the sequence of the test questions, the app randomizes them to make memorization harder.
