Eidetic - Learn & remember anything
By Steven Waterfall
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Eidetic uses a technique called spaced repetition to help you memorise anything from important phone numbers to interesting words or facts.
It works differently from typical brain training apps by using items that have meaning and context.
Perfect for students looking to remember those key facts or anyone who wants to remember friends phone numbers, new bank details or just cool words, quotes or facts you come across!
Eidetic uses notifications to remind you when it's time to test yourself. By spacing the tests out over time it helps you to retain the information in long-term memory, this is known as the 'spacing effect'.
Built in flashcard types make it easy to add items:
• Phone Number
Simple intensity levels allow you to select the length of the testing period. For those who need to remember the information quickly you can cram it into one day or if you want to learn it more naturally you can space it over 2 weeks or a month!
• Cram - 1 Day
• Normal - 2 Weeks
• Casual - 1 Month

rip off and very frustrating if you have more than 1 device
having paid for the pro version on my iPad, I was very disappointed to learn that I would have to re-buy the pro version for my iPhone. in addition to having to spend more money for something I had already paid fro, there is no way to sync your content accross devices, so facts that you spent time inputting into the iad version has to be re-input from scratch ion the iPhone version, assuming you were willing to spend money on something you already bought. when I attempted to contact cistomer support - twice - abouty this issue, I never recieved a reply. the first time I gave them 2 weeks to reply, and the second time I gave them a week. this product is a ripoff if you are planning on using it across multiple devices. I found a number of much better, syncable flashcard apps that allow me to populate content across both of my devices.
Learned becomes forgotten
I liked this app while I was trying to memorize phone numbers, important dates and other items. However, when the app thought I learned the item, it then archived the item forever. As a result, those facts were eventually forgotten, of course. There MUST be periodic testing, even of memorized things, or facts will be forgotten. This is a very basic concept of learning, so I am amazed that it isn't included in this app. Additionally, I can find no way to contact the developer--not within the app, the app description page, or the linked web site. I would have liked to have written him regarding this issue and given him a chance to fix it rather than leaving a negative review.
Seeing is belief
There always will be some idiots that do not know why that an not get the pro. Like I said, it works to me for both iPad and iPhone version and do not need to buy the pro again. The app is awesome. But still need some work, cuz the app is out of update. Please fix it and add more future like you can just list the thing and do not need to write an answer. Also, it would be much better to have a widget.
