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 2.5.1
- Fixed issue with learning screen.
- Minor bug fixes
Just a little off
This app does what it says - it periodically tests you on little facts that that you enter yourself to help you memorize them. And that pretty much works. But it's a little quirky and can be frustrating - for instance, I set up a quiz to remember the license plate number for my new car, and every time it quizzes me it says I got the answer wrong, I try again and it says I'm right - this has happened so often that I've been EXTREMELY careful to double-check that I entered the correct answer, and it still ALWAYS says I get it wrong the first time, every time. I'm not sure why this happens - maybe it's too picky (an extra space in the answer, or a lower case letter instead of a capital? - though as far as I can tell neither was the case. Maybe it doesn't like hyphens? ). And the watch app is basically useless, it just displays an alert asking if you can remember the fact (so no need for an actual "app" since the watch can display any alert from any phone app without a dedicated "watch app") - it should allow you to try to speak the answer, or at least view the correct answer. In this case, it would actually be better as a plain alert, because answering the question on the watch (to dismiss the alert) causes it to skip the actual test on the phone - you have to remember to *not* answer the question on the watch if you want to test you memory in the app.
Still need fixing
This app delivers in every aspect. It does exactly as it promised, and it is perfect for learning languages.
But it desperately needs some upgrades and fixes. For instance, it would be great if instead of telling you so bluntly that you fail to write the answer, it should at least let you see what was wrong with your answer so you have a better understanding of your mistakes. Also for some reason every time i open the app, my battery gets drained.
I would have given a better ranking if it weren't for the battery drain problem.
