"Memorize Anything" is a powerful new way of memorizing by LISTENING TO YOURSELF.
NOTE (Dec 2014) - If the app doesn't play back any audio, it probably means you need to give the app permission to use your microphone. Go to Settings > Privacy > Microphone > Memorize (turn on).
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 1.8
Fixed problem where some older recordings were not playing back properly.
Awsome app if it worked on iPhone 5
Just bought the Memorize Anything App yesterday and it has already lost the ability to play back my recordings three times. I hit the play button and nothing happens. I have to delete and reinstall the app to get it to work again. Each time this happens, I loose the files I recorded. After the second time it stopped working, I figured out how to export the files by emailing them to myself. Now, the app has stopped playing back the files again and the only way to get it to work again is to delete it and reinstall it but I will loose my files again. Can't find a way to import the files that I emailed myself so that I don't have to spend all the time rerecording them again. I really liked this app the few times it worked but since it keeps loosing the ability to play back my recordings, this app is a hassle and a waste of money.
One of the best apps I have ever used!
This is absolutely fantastic! I love being able to record what ever I choose to memorize! I love that there are different categories that you can set up so that it is so easy. This app has changed my life!… For those of you that say that you have downloaded the app and then you couldn't play it back this is what you do. You have to turn your phone completely off and turn it back on again like a computer and then you're app will start working again sometimes your phone gets overloaded. I don't think it is the app I think it is actually our phone that just needs to be rebooted.
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.
