AppAdvice has teamed up with Steven Waterfall in order to offer you a chance to win one of five promo codes for Eidetic ($1.99) for iPhone and iPod touch. In theory, generalized memory training apps are a good idea, using routine practice sessions to improve memory retention behavior. However, as pointed out in our Mind Strength review, "You have to memorize numbers that have no personal connection for you." It's with that thought Eidetic was born. Utilizing the same routine test schedule method as general memory training apps, Eidetic replaces the sample content with information you need and want to remember. For example, you can use Eidetic to stop forgetting a pin or social security number, learn a new fact or word, prevent missing an anniversary, retain an inspiring quote to share with others in times of relevancy, and more. Eidetic includes templates for word definitions, facts, numbers, quotes, notes, and photos that consist of the item details in separate fields, plus a progress report, three test frequency and two test type options. Of course, each scheduled test is accompanied by a convenient push notification. To have a chance at winning one of two Eidetic promo codes, just hit that tweet button near the bottom of this page or retweet this post from your favorite Twitter app before July 31 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. We will then search the Twitterverse for all of the retweets and randomly choose our lucky winners. The winners will be notified via Twitter, so please be sure to follow us so we can send you your promo code via a direct message. Non-Twitter users and those of you who want to increase your odds of winning can leave a relevant comment below before 11:59 p.m. PDT tonight to have a chance at winning one of the other three Eidetic promo codes. If you do make an entry via the comments area, please be sure to also check your junk email boxes so that you won't miss out if you win. Feel free to participate in the giveaway via either or both methods. Only one entry per person per method is allowed, totaling up to two entries per person if using both.
