Hey guys... I'm the guy that put out the Ultimate Mnemonica and Aronson Trainer apps.

If you guys have read any mentalism books, or anything on memorizing, you may have come across something called the Peg System or Major System. (Zufall's Memory Tricks, How to Develop a Super Power Memory, 13 Steps, etc...)

This is something that I have been trying to learn for quite some time but ... I would get up to number 20 in my word list and then stop. I realized I could reinvent my Mnemonica and Aronson apps to help me memorize my word list(s).

I used a similar learning method to my Mnemonica and Aronson games to create this app. It is fully customizable where you can add your own words and pictures. It has a picture mode and a word mode for which ever suits you best.

Also... right now I am working on creating an intro into the Major System and the Peg system that goes in the app. You should only really download the app if you have an understanding of what the Major System is and how to use it. I would highly recommend reading Harry Lorayne's book, Zufall's memory tricks, or the quick tutorial on my website (MajorSystemTrainer.com). Without this you might be kind of lost until the next update comes out with the in app tutorial on the system.

This is the link to both the Android and iTunes versions: http://www.majorsystemtrainer.com/the-ul......trainer/

Please let me know any feedback if you download the app!

This is a great idea for an app. If you're feeling up to it, you might consider expanding the app to include the Person-Action-Object system.

I can also imagine a similar app for playing cards. It would function identically to your Major System app, but would only need to go up to 52 images.

Thanks for sharing this.

Thanks Conner! I think that is going to be my next app. Specifically for rapidly memorizing the order of a deck of cards. There is a really good system explained in Zufall's Memory Tricks where you use a combination of the Major System along with using the first letter of the suit to make memorable images out of every card.

I've thought about looking into creating something for the PAO system, but I think that is going to be a little ways into the future. Right now I want to go back and update some of my olds apps like the Mnemonica and Aronson trainers and then I want to make a Pt. 2 to this app where it tests you on your ability to use your pegs. I'm thinking it will give you random objects or numbers and test how fast you can absorb and recall them.

I just purchased Ultimate Stack Trainer & Ultimate Major System Trainer for Android. I will be using both to enter custom sets. One thing right off the bat I see that we need is the ability export and import. Since I am using this with custom set, I would hate to have to redo this on another device later, since I will be putting so much time into editing. Is there a way to do this now? Perhaps a file I can find and save? But for future releases I feel this needs to be built into the app.

I will shoot you an email as well.

Hey tmoca,
Thanks that is great feedback! In a future release I am going to have the ability to login and sync your words, images, and game progress across devices. For the import I really like that idea. Maybe I can set something up on the website where you can upload an Excel file and import images from your computer in a drag and drop fashion. I think it may take a little bit of time before I am able to get that up and running though.

In the meantime, is there a specific file that we can backup? I would hate to edit all of my words then have something go wrong and have to do it all over again.

Are you on Android or iOS? I'll see if I can add a backup feature tonight. However, if you are on iOS you will not be able to use it until the update gets approved by the app store which usually takes 4 - 7 days, Android should be available within a few hours of me putting out the update. I'll let you know when I add the feature.
