Some people have a great memory. Most of us, though, usually struggle trying to memorize all the names and numbers that we read and hear in our daily lives, and often wish we had a prodigious brain to be able to remember everything.
But no, we can't all be like Powder and we definitely wouldn't want you to turn into John Travolta in Phenomenon. But what you sure can do is practise training your memory like you do with your body (you don't skip the gym, right?); after all, the brain is like a muscle. And we should exercise our brain all the time.
Memory is one of the key processes and is essential. So if you want to see your memory increase and get progressively better, you should take a look at the following list of apps and games.
Flashcards [::] is one of the best apps of its kind. If you need to memorize information, vocabulary or practically anything, this is the app you need. Perfect for students and professionals. It allows total organization, so you can easily create folders and decks and afterwards, practise whatever you've just memorized.
Lumosity is the perfect brain training app whose focus is memory practise. The application is appropriate for many different common situations where you could use a bit of help: when you can't remember people's names, when you need to memorize something really quickly... Lumosity will provide you with tools to train that skill and become better with time.
Toto Totems is a cute game that changes the tone and makes memory training a bit more fun. This is perfect to play with your family and practise your skills together. Memorize the colors and quickly recreate the combination by swiping the totems left or right. It's addictive and thrilling. And you'll learn to think fast as well.
A classic among classics, Simon Circles is a new version of Simon Says. Here, instead of colors, you need to tap each number in the correct order and be careful with the speed, which nevers stops increasing. It's hard not to touch the wrong button, but it's a fun way of practising your memory and getting frustrated with your phone.
Eidetic is an interesting memory game that focuses on repetition and helps you retain information quickly and effectively. It's simple, it's easy to use and it actually works really well. Eidetic lets you follow your progress and it's all packed in a beautiful and minimal interface that makes it one of the best apps within its category.
Last, but not least, we have Foxy Bird, which is not only original, but also has an amazing interface. And it's so hard that it keeps you addicted: you want to try it over and over again to improve your score. Follow the fox's steps and jump from ice cube to ice cube, keeping in mind that these are not fixed and it will all get messy very soon. Super fun, a great surprise.
