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
What's New in Version 2.5

Pretty good needs some work
I needed this app to help me concentrate and study. It's really helpful, my only problem is the organization, instead of individual notes, package them within one another to reduce clutter. Can you also add a formula section?
Eidetic, not Idiotic..!
Well, eidetic does not equate with idiotic. Yet, if you miss your answer to a question by as much as a letter or a hyphen, the answer is deemed wrong and your progress stifled. That, my friend, IS idiotic. Otherwise a useful app, trashed by its tunnel visioned algoriddim. Wrong!! Algoridm. Thumbs up for the concept though!
Push notifications stop after a day or two and don't resume until you re-launch app. Dev does not respond.
Good for phone numbers.
Bad for memorizing passwords. App does not disable auto-correct when testing you (so autocorrect memorizes the password and later suggests it. Huge security flaw, plus you don't memorize it. )
Bad for account numbers and things with text where case does not matter. (App treats all things to be memorized as case sensitive).
