At all stages of life, we are called upon to memorize something. Whether it is a historical passage, a mailing address or your wife's birthday, it is inevitable your memory will be tested. Memorize it! is an app designed to help you learn things by heart. Available from both the Windows 10 and Windows Phone Store, Memorize it! is today's AdDuplex HERO App.
The HERO Apps program is a promotional campaign for Windows Phone and Windows developers on the AdDuplex Network and partners AdDuplex with myAppFree, AppDeals, PluralSight and Windows Central to deliver a host of benefits to the top apps and games each month. Our role in the HERO App campaign is to offer a little exposure to these titles by sharing them with you, our readers, and today we take a look at Memorize it!.
The interface with Memorize it! is rather simple and straightforward. You have a text field you can enter whatever you need to memorize. Once entered, you have a host of options to choose from to help you memorize the information. These options scramble up the passage to help you memorize things.
Options include showing only the first letters, removing all the vowels, removing all the consonants, creating gaps in the words and more. When the scrambled passage appears, you practice aloud and if you need a hint, tap and hold the screen to reveal the full text. You also have an audio playback feature where you can read along as the app reads the text aloud.
You do have the option of entering text audibly or punching it out from the keyboard. The app ran smoothly from Windows 10 and Windows Phone 8.1, but it is a little buggy on Windows 10 Mobile. For some reason, the keyboard on the Lumia 950 kept popping up whenever a text field was present on the screen. This happened regardless of whether or not you highlighted the text field for entry.
In just tinkering with Memorize it! for a short time, it comes across as a Windows app that could help build your memory skills and come in handy whenever you have something that needs to be memorized. The free, ad-supported version is limited in the number of options you have available to scramble your text (First Letters Only, Gap-Fill, No Vowels). To unlock the additional six options and remove the ads, it will cost you an in-app purchase of $1.49.
