The fastest way to learn any text. Progressively hides words until all are gone!

Wanna learn lyrics, poems, texts, speeches, scriptures, movie or stage lines by heart, in no time? Memy lets you learn texts by heart ultra fast, by gradually hiding words.

Read the text aloud a few times, and then hit the "hide" button: a few random words will be blanked out. Your challenge is then to read aloud again, trying to remember the words that are hidden. If you can't, display more words again. But as soon as you can comfortably read the text, without any hesitation, hide more words to increase the difficulty and challenge your brain even more. Once no word is visible, you will know the text by heart!

Since your brain only has to learn a few words at a time and the difficulty increases gradually, you'll be able to learn entire texts by focusing a few minutes -a task that might have taken you hours without this technique.

Extra features:
- Have your text auto-scroll: click the play button, and click again to stop. Adjust the speed using the control buttons.
- Long press on the text, and all the words will temporarily reappear while you hold your finger on the screen.

What's New

Version 2.4

Introducing text options! When you add or edit a text, tap “options” to fine-tune your settings for that text. Here are the two first options available:
• CHARACTERS: I am very excited to announce that the app now supports texts in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, and any other language that uses characters rather than words separated by white spaces. To enable that for a specific text, tap "edit" then "options" and set "Text uses characters" to YES.
• AUTO-CORRECTION: the options menu also includes an option to disable auto-correction when typing in your text. Ideal when using old English!

Excellent tool for text memorization because:

-Re: Developer's question below my original 4-star review, I suggest the addition of a few simple time-saving automation features for ease-of-use which, imo, would elevate it to a five star app.
What might these be? Here's one: Allow users to open Ultramem directly from Safari. That way, after going online, finding, and copying the text to be memorized, several steps could then be eliminated i.e., exiting Safari, finding the icon for Ultramem, opening it and pasting the text from the iPad's clipboard). This developer is obviously intelligent and motivated enough to figure out and implement a variety of such features while keeping the UI simple.

-Original review:
It's a simple app. to use; with an uncluttered and intuitive UI, a useful tutorial, and a small data footprint. Kudos to the developer for successfully implementing a great memorization tool 👍👍👍👍👍

Developer Response

Thank you very much! 👏 Any feature I could improve or add to the app to earn that fifth star? 😊👨‍💻 - Kevin [] - UPDATE: Thanks for your answer! That is an interesting suggestion, I am gonna investigate it.


More limited than I expected

I was satisfied with the basic functionality—until I realized that the one text I’d put in was the only one I was going to be allowed on the free version. Are you kidding me? Now when I try to add, I only get the prompt for the pricey premium version. I even deleted the tutorial, assuming that without it, I could at least have two texts to work with (besides preloaded poem.) Nope. I tried deleting and replacing my one text. That worked but still leaves me disappointed. By the way, I think a limit of, say, five texts is fair for a free version.

Developer Response

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to write review, and sorry about the frustration. It’s hard to find the right balance: give enough to users to use the app for free forever, but also give them a reason to upgrade and support the development.
However, I think you are right and I am gonna reconsider the number of free texts, especially now that I am slowly adding more features that create more reasons to upgrade. Could you get in touch with me via the app to discuss that? :))
Thanks a lot,


Thought it wasn’t possible...

...that I could memorize prayers that I struggled to find the time to focus on them. This app made it possible. One of my daughters would write prayers on a white board and then gradually erase the words, but this app is greater because you can have the words come back.
