The fastest way to learn any text. Progressively hides words until all are gone!

Wanna learn lyrics, poems, texts, speeches, scriptures, movie or stage lines by heart, in no time? Memy lets you learn texts by heart ultra fast, by gradually hiding words.

Read the text aloud a few times, and then hit the "hide" button: a few random words will be blanked out. Your challenge is then to read aloud again, trying to remember the words that are hidden. If you can't, display more words again. But as soon as you can comfortably read the text, without any hesitation, hide more words to increase the difficulty and challenge your brain even more. Once no word is visible, you will know the text by heart!

Since your brain only has to learn a few words at a time and the difficulty increases gradually, you'll be able to learn entire texts by focusing a few minutes -a task that might have taken you hours without this technique.

Extra features:
- Have your text auto-scroll: click the play button, and click again to stop. Adjust the speed using the control buttons.
- Long press on the text, and all the words will temporarily reappear while you hold your finger on the screen.

What's New

Version 2.3.1

Remember that shiny new import/export feature from version 2.3, that I released about 4 hours ago? Turns out the app would crash when trying to use it on iPad. Shame. On. Me. Sorry about that. Now fixed. No further comments.

As a reminder, release notes from version 2.3:
• IMPORT/EXPORT: if you are a Premium user, you can now import or export a ".memy" file that contains all your texts! You can therefore back them up to your Cloud app of choice (iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.), import them on your other devices, or send them to friends & family.
• CRASH: fixed a a bug that could, in rare circumstances, cause the app to crash when trying to upgrade to Premium.

Big thank you to all of you who suggested that feature,

Excellent tool for text memorization because:

-Re: Developer's question below my original 4-star review, I suggest the addition of a few simple time-saving automation features for ease-of-use which, imo, would elevate it to a five star app.
What might these be? Here's one: Allow users to open Ultramem directly from Safari. That way, after going online, finding, and copying the text to be memorized, several steps could then be eliminated i.e., exiting Safari, finding the icon for Ultramem, opening it and pasting the text from the iPad's clipboard). This developer is obviously intelligent and motivated enough to figure out and implement a variety of such features while keeping the UI simple.

-Original review:
It's a simple app. to use; with an uncluttered and intuitive UI, a useful tutorial, and a small data footprint. Kudos to the developer for successfully implementing a great memorization tool 👍👍👍👍👍

Developer Response

Thank you very much! 👏 Any feature I could improve or add to the app to earn that fifth star? 😊👨‍💻 - Kevin [] - UPDATE: Thanks for your answer! That is an interesting suggestion, I am gonna investigate it.


Thought it wasn’t possible...

...that I could memorize prayers that I struggled to find the time to focus on them. This app made it possible. One of my daughters would write prayers on a white board and then gradually erase the words, but this app is greater because you can have the words come back.


Great App, Great Developer

I don't usually write reviews, but I feel strongly about the quality of the app. It's intuitive, interactive, and the developer clearly cares about the user experience (as is clear through the tutorial & review responses). Well done!

Developer Response

Thank you so much! (And WHAT!? someone actually reads my review responses? Ahah).
Please do get in touch if you have feature ideas :-)
