"Memorize Anything" is a powerful new way of memorizing by LISTENING TO YOURSELF.
NOTE (NOV 25, 2013) - We've just updated the app to resolve an issue where recordings are not playing back. We know of one more issue that is affecting a small group of people where recordings are still not playing properly. We are working on a fix and plan to have the issue resolved ASAP.
MEMORIZATION IS HARD
When people try to memorize scripture, there’s a pretty standard bag of tricks that never works. You put a post-it on your dashboard, you write it on your bathroom mirror, etc. Or maybe you’ve tried something more quizzing yourself with flashcards or fill-in-the-blanks.
Few of these techniques really expose you to the original text for any amount of time. How are you supposed to learn it if you never read it?
HOW WE MAKE IT EASIER
We believe that the best way to memorize something is to HEAR it over and over.
Why? Because hearing it means you don't have to actively read it. Instead you listen and soak it in - paying attention whenever you can. Now you can be memorizing while you drive or while you work.
Furthermore, when you hear the text spoken with your tone, inflection, and rhythm it will be especially natural for you to listen and SPEAK/THINK ALONG. When you start to memorize portions of it, bump the skill level up to “EASY”. This will periodically fade the audio out for a small amount of time, leaving you a chance to really test your ability. No worries if you get it wrong, the audio will fade back in and your learning continues.
LEARN A CHAPTER, NOT A VERSE
We really encourage people to stretch themselves to learn scripture in chapters instead of verses. This may seem impossible, but think about this... how many songs do you know word for word? Of course a song is more fun to listen to, but it demonstrates the power of hearing something over and over again.
RESULTS AND IDEAS
We hope this works well for you. If it does, send us an email and share your results! If you’ve got ideas that would make it more effective, then we’d love to hear from you!
What's New in Version 1.8
Fixed problem where some older recordings were not playing back properly.
For My Son
I have used this app to prepare for speeches. But recently enjoyed using it to prepare for my Sons Wedding Day. I used this app to memorize seven Bible Verses. I played back the verses over & over in random order. Doing so enabled be to learn well. In a quiet moment before my sons wedding I pulled my son aside, gave him the list of Bible Verses and asked him to choose the verse for me to recite in any order he desired. As he called out each one I was able to recite the verse and tell how I was thinking of him. I don't think I missed a word and more importantly it added a special moment to an already amazing day.
Could use some improvements
For stuff I want to memorize the app doesn't have so I have to say it...I don't like to have to say it or listen to my voice I would rather have an automated speaker thing so I can type it in and hear some voice say it instead but make it an option to use voice or machine something like taht
Perfect for our needs
My ten year old learns by hearing. He has a weekly Bible passage to memorize. This app is the best! The automatic repetition is fabulous. He can listen while drawing, playing Legos...whatever, again he's memorizing his Bible passage so much quicker.
