About Eidetic - Learn & remember anything

Rather than deliver an all-in-one brain training app, Eidetic focuses on one specific faculty: memory. Eidetic uses a flash card-style approach to help its users memorize everything from notes, lists, phone numbers, quotes and other useful real-life applications. The app includes a simple system for users to write down their own content in easy-to-use categories, allowing them to store and then memorize whatever's relevant. You simply set the intensity of memory training, from one day cramfests to a more sedate weekly period, and Eidetic automatically notifies you when it's a good time to practice.

Teacher Review

Eidetic uses a technique called spaced repetition to help you memorize anything from important phone numbers to interesting words or facts. Eidetic uses a flash card-style approach to help its users memorize everything from notes, lists, phone numbers, quotes and other useful real-life applications. Users simply set the intensity of memory training, from one day cramfests to a more sedate weekly period, and Eidetic notifications remind you when it’s time to test yourself and spaces out tests over time to make sure you retain the information in long-term memory. 

Eidetic takes its name from eidetic memory, which is often called photographic memory in popular culture. It’s the ability to vividly recall images in memory, with great precision, after only a few instances of exposure.

Eidetic aims to help you learn and remember and learn anything. Rather than offering traditional brain training exercises, it helps you to learn key information like phone numbers, bank details, quotes and facts, making it perfect for students or those looking for a boost to their long term memory.

The app uses a technique called space repetition. After you input facts you want to memorise into the app, it will send you notifications reminding you to test yourself using the app’s built in flashcards. By spacing these tests out over time, it helps the information take root in your long term memory.

You can change the length of the testing period depending on how quickly you need to learn something. There are three intensity levels – ‘cram’ will help you to learn something in a day, making it ideal for last minute revision. ‘Normal’ extends this to 2 weeks, whilst ‘casual’ lasts a month.
