Hi Everyone,
I have just released a new app on Android, iOS, and Amazon to help learn the Mnemonica stack. Below is the description that is on the app stores. I hope you will give it a try and let me know any feedback!

Here is a link to the app's page on my website: http://magicalexcellence.com/learn-mnemo......-trainer

Description:

WHY THIS MNEMONICA APP?

I’ve been searching for the perfect Mnemonica app for a long time, something that was engaging, made me want to learn, and something that actually worked. So, after wasting time and money on other apps I decided to make my own, built with everything I wanted that the other apps simply did not provide.

FUN AND ADDICTING

The Ultimate Mnemonica Trainer is not actually a “trainer”… it is a game. I realized I liked playing games like Candy Crush and Two Dots, and if I could make learning Mnemonica as addicting as these games I would be more likely to stick with it.

You start out on Level 1 which presents you with a card, 4 possible answers as to what number in the stack the card is, 3 lives, and 30 seconds. Each time you match the card with the correct number you get a point.

7 Points to move to the next level and you get 1 star
10 Points is 2 stars
12 Points is 3 stars
LEARNING IN CHUNKS

The game is broken up into 7 stages with 8 levels each:
Stage 1: Cards 1- 13
Stage 2: Cards 14-26
Stage 3: Cards 1- 26
Stage 4: Cards 27-39
Stage 5: Cards 39- 52
Stage 6: Cards 27-52
Stage 6: Cards 1-52

This is because breaking Mnemonica into bite sized chunks will maximize your ability to learn it quickly and retain the knowledge.

MIX UP LEARNING METHODS

Each stage has 8 levels, each with a different way to learn the stack. When you mix up how to learn this accomplishes two things…
It keeps you interested
It prepares you for real world situations

LEVELS 1, 2, AND 3: THE BASICS

These are the basic “what card is what number” and “what number is what card” multiple choice questions. If you get an answer wrong it will show you what the right answer is. Using this method, if you have never looked at the Mnemonica stack before, you will be able to memorize each set in about 20 minutes. These levels are perfect for learning the basics.

LEVELS 4, 5, AND 6: WHAT COMES BEFORE AND WHAT COMES AFTER

Other trainers gave you the option to choose what number is what card and what card is what number… In real world scenarios you need to know what comes after and what comes before a card on the bottom or the top of the deck. So Three levels are dedicated to just having you answer what comes next or what comes before. These levels are perfect for cementing the basics and improving speed.

LEVEL 7: NO MORE MULTIPLE CHOICE

At this point our minds start to get used to multiple choice. In the real world there we do not get 4 options to choose from, we have to KNOW what number the card is. On this level you there is no multiple choice, you type in the number the card shown is.

LEVEL 8: PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER

Level 8 mixes all of the techniques together to test your mastery of the stage.

MASTER MNEMONICA

If you get 3 stars on every level, I guarantee that you will have mastered Mnemonica to the point where you don’t even have to think “what number is this card” or “what is after the 3 of hearts” when you are performing in the real world. You will just know…

I hope you enjoy the app, and please contact me with any feedback!

Thanks again!

Hi Gordon,

I emailed you back, and thank you for your second email letting me know that it works fine on your iPad. The issue seems to be that you are operating iOS 8.3 on an iPhone 4s. The game, for iOS, is specifically optimized for the iPhone 5 and above which it does say in the app store. However, it should work fine on the 4s running iOS 6 or 7. Apple products that are two generations behind seem to have issues running the newer software in some instances. You may notice that a lot of your apps are not running as smoothly or quitting now after the update. My 4s started acting that way when I upgraded to iOS 7 and several apps that ran fine stopped working completely it was very frustrating. I am specifically not updating my older iPad for that reason. But I am glad that you are enjoying the app and it works fine on your iPad. I wish you all the best learning Mnemonica and would appreciate any other feedback you might have and I am very sorry for the inconvenience!

Thank you,
Sam

I do want to add Sam has excellent customer service. The game is fun and addicting and may just be the best way to learn the Tamariz Mnemonica stack. I hope he does more stacks in the future.

I just purchased this since I am wanting to learn this stack. Hope this makes it easier for me than I planned on it being.
