Summary

This is the Memorize.com blog. Here you'll find posts about new features and other goings-on. See twitter.com/memorize for selected interesting pages users create.

 

Apr 16, 2011 - Badges

Now when you complete all the tables on a page you are awarded a badge!

 

How to get badges

Click the "memorize" buttons and review all tables on a page, in whichever mode you prefer. You'll notice the tables turn green as you complete them. Once you review them all (without navigating away from the page) you'll be given a badge.

 

The badge you get will reflect which mode or modes you used (flashcard, matching, or multiple choice).

Mar 21, 2011 - Private Pages

Pages you create can now be private. This means they are only accessible by you and any people you choose to share with. Private pages are great if you're creating training material for your company that you don't want the world to see.

How to create private pages

Click the "Create" button (top of page) as you usually would. When you're ready to save, click the "or change to private..." link next to the save button:

Aug 16, 2010 - Improved Home Page

After some great feedback we've done a little home improvement... home page improvement, that is (please, no tomatoes). We've revamped the home page to do a better job of telling you what you can do with Memorize.com.

Top of page

The "Create" section now lets you start off creating a page. The "Share" section now shows two featured pages contributed by users.

The new Image Wizard lets you easily create tables with images, like Flags or Twilight Cast. Click the "create" button (top of page) to try it out!

 

Searching or Uploading

Like the diagram wizard, you can search in millions of images to use to create your pages, or upload your own! You can find an image for almost anything.

May 20, 2010 - New Look

After quite a bit of feeback from you (thanks for that) we've launched a new look with much simpler navigation and a more useful home page.

New logo and layout

The logo and the layout of the site have been revamped, with simplicity in mind. We'll miss the old orange header and so will some of you, but based on the feedback many of you will not:)

Apr 7, 2010 - Simpler User Interface

Two new user-interface features aimed at ease of use have been released.

New Table Look and Feel

Memorize tables are now easier to understand and use, with green, prominent buttons and better keyboard shortcuts. Here's an example of the new look:

 

How to start | Click a "start memorizing" button
Keyboard shortcut for "I was right" | r
Keyboard shortcut for other buttons | w

 

With these and other subtle improvements to the memorization process, the pages you create will now be easier understand by the people you share them with.
