"Memorize Anything" is a powerful new way of memorizing by LISTENING TO YOURSELF.
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.

What's New in Version 1.13
Minor bug fixes.
I've read all the reviews on this, I haven't personally had any of the problems others have with this app. It's AWESOME.
I've memorized a few things so far on just listening to my recordings on my hour long commute. It's a great way to use that time well. I recommend recording yourself speaking very very slowly and expressively, like you're reading to a kid with a short attention span.
I downloaded the program and recorded a few scripts that I need to learn. So far, so good. Then came the problem (and resulting 3 star vs 5 star review). I reached the maximum amount of recording I could do without buying the full program upgrade. For 99 cents I was ready, willing and able to upgrade. Unfortunately, the app will not allow me to upgrade. I click the “upgrade” button and the app says “connecting” for about 20 seconds and nothing happens. Such a bummer. I really wanted to love this app.
Great app, but might forget that you paid for the upgrade
If you want to verify an upgrade on a new device, you might try to look in your iCloud email. That resulted in my previous frustration. All issues resolved. I adore this app. Pay for it!
Rebooted my phone and this app forgot that I paid for the upgrade now. It freezes every time I try to ask for my upgrade privileges. Very frustrating.
Here is my review when it remembers that I paid for the app and am able to make more than three recordings.
"I never buy apps. But I love this one!"
"Best tool for memorizing scripture or poetry or anything really. Go on and buy it and use it. Hide God's Word in your heart!"
