That's pretty cool. Although I don't have the need to memorize stuff very often, I find the concept very interesting. I haven't seen anything like that before. If this is something that hasn't been done before you might have a hit.

Now if you just tied it into a voice recognition system to reveal the words as you speak them correctly, that would be insane!

I think that's a cracking product, and a lot of students will get good use out of it.  What platform are you using?  It looks slick, you've done well to get it done and look so good within a week.

You should have a nice background song on your youtube video.  Perhaps something classical.  Annabel Lee is a very rhythmatic and noisy piece.

I've never seen anything like that before, that's a very clever idea.
Good luck with it

Thanks to all... I didn't really expect such nice words :)
Didn't use much of a platform just good old  Delphi 7

What do you mean 'noisy'?

With a little bit of tweaking, this could be ideal for actors who need to learn their lines.

"If this is something that hasn't been done before you might have a hit."

The irony of him showing it to us on YouTube, is that the side-bar of YouTube shows dozens of other memory training apps.  So it seems to be a very crowded market.

That's besides all the potential competitors lurking here.

Yep, forums like these are breeding grounds for people to steal ideas.  In fact, I'm gonna copy the idea and release my own version of the app.  (J/K).

Nice product!  It's the first time for a while I've looked at a product and thought "wow, that's a good idea". 

Good luck with it!  That first sale is always a nice feeling, particularly when it comes early on. 

I'm off to copy your idea right now ;)  Only joking! 

btw good to see I'm not the only one still using Delphi 7!
