1 - What's New in Remember Me 6?
If you are looking for information about previous Remember Me versions, please visit the help pages for Remember Me 5 and older.
Easier to Use
Remember Me 6 emphasizes the flashcard metaphor. Flashcards move between the boxes New, Due, and Known. A verse’s flashcard is the starting point for studying and for reviewing it. The flashcard metaphor helps to understand the basic processes more intuitively.
Power users with hundreds of Verses enjoy more ways to group and filter their verse decks using customizable labels. Visual users benefit from adding images to their verses. Multilingual users can listen to reference and passage in different languages.
The new app version guarantees a unified user experience across all devices, because it uses the same software framework for all platforms. App and framework are open source.
2 - Five Steps to Remember
1 Add a new Bible memory verse.
The Bible memory app Remember Me offers various options to save a Bible memory text to your device. You can
- enter any text manually
- retrieve a verse from a variety of Bible versions
- download Bible memory verse collections from other users
2 Commit a Bible verse to memory.
Studying a Bible verse gets fun if you apply a variety of methods.
- Listen to it
- Hide random words
- Make it a puzzle
- Display first letters or empty word lines
- Type its first letters
3 Use topics and images.
Not everybody is good with numbers - and you don’t need to be to memorize with a system. Add a topic or an image to your Bible memory verse and it will help you pick out the right Bible verse from your memory.
4 Review memorized Bible verses.
Once you have committed a memory verse, it shows up for review in the “Due” box. Start a series of Bible flashcards to review the verses. Say the Scripture memory verse aloud, flip the card, and check if you got it right.
Spaced Repetition makes sure you review newly memorized Bible verses often, but don’t forget well known Bible memory verses either.
5 Redeem the time.
Make the most of every opportunity. The best Bible memory apps work because you can take the two minutes during which you are brushing your teeth to memorize Scripture. Keep Remember Me with you and use it during those natural pause moments of life.
3 - Users and Accounts
Register as a User
On web.remem.me you can register for free. After submitting the registration form, you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration.
Multiple Verse Accounts
An account for your verses is created automatically with your user registration. Language, account name, review preferences etc. are stored in your account’s settings. As a user you can add additional accounts, e.g. for your children or for memorizing verses in a second language. For most users, one account will be sufficient. You cannot transfer verses between accounts. For organizing your verses, use labels.
In order to add a new account, click on the triangle in the header of the menu on the left, and select “Create new account” from the menu.
Import Accounts from Previous Versions
After creating a new user account (identified by your email address), you can attach verse accounts from previous Remember Me versions. Click on the triangle in the header of the menu on the left, and select “Add existing account” from the menu. Enter name and password of the legacy account and tap on “Log in”. You can use the attached account just like any other Remember Me 6 verse account.
Synchronising Multiple Devices
Devices with offline capability sport a round arrow icon next to the current account’s name in the navigation drawer on the left. If the icon is not visible (e.g. in a web browser), verses are stored online only. Verses and study progress are synchronised automatically. Tap the round arrow icon to load data newly edited on a different device. If you need to force your device to retrieve and send all data, press long on the icon.
- one arrow as a circle: Possible changes on other devices. Tap to retrieve them.
- two arrows as a circle: Local changes on this device. Tap to send them.
- exclamation mark in the circle: Synchronisation failed. Tap to try again.
Editing and Deleting Verse Accounts
In order to edit or delete the currently selected account, select “Account” from the main navigation on the left. Tapping on the wastebin icon in the top right corner deletes the account. A deleted account is stored in the waste bin for three months and can be restored from there.
Editing and Deleting User Access
If you want to edit or delete your user registration, switch to account navigation (triangle in the header of the menu on the left) and select “User”. For editing your email address, enter the new address and the current password and tap on “Save”. For deleting your user access to remem.me altogether, all verse accounts need to be deleted first. Then, enter the current password and tap on the user dialog’s wastebin icon.
AttentionDeleting your access to remem.me cannot be undone. All your data will be removed from all databases immediately and permanently.
4 - Adding and Editing Verses
Adding a Verse
Select the tab “New” and press on the “+” button at the bottom of the screen to open the form. Fill in reference and passage and tap on the top left button (disk symbol) in order to save to verse. The verse is now listed in your inbox.
Retrieving a Passage from an Online Bible
If Remember Me recognizes the reference (e.g. 1st Jn 3:16 or 1John 3:1-3) as a reference to a Bible passage and the source (e.g. ESV) as an online Bible version, it displays a button with a Bible symbol. An additional toggle button allows to retrieve the passage with or without verse numbers. If you tap the Scripture button, Remember Me opens the online Bible’s website and offers you to paste the passage into the app. You can add additional line breaks or other modifications and save the verse (see above).
Editing a Verse
If you tap on a verse listed in one of the three boxes (New, Due, Known), it is displayed as a flash card. You can edit it by tapping on the pencil symbol in the top bar.
Attaching an Image
When editing a verse (see above), you can attach an image that will be used as flashcard background for the verse. Basically, you can enter the internet address (URL) of any image available online in the field “Image URL” in the lower part of the screen. For convenience, there is an image button on the right for searching images on Unsplash.com. Tap on the name to find out more about the photographer and on the image to insert its address into the form field. Only photos from Unsplash.com are included in public verse collections. Tap on the top left button (disk symbol) in order to save to verse with the image attached.
Moving, Postponing, or Deleting Verses
Select verses by tapping on their badge, and open the menu on the right (three dots). It provides the options to move the selected verses to a different box, to postpone their due date, or to delete them.
Restore Deleted Verses
Recently deleted verses can be restored online from the waste bin.
5 - Studying and Reviewing
Verses move between the three boxes “New”, “Due”, and “Known”. Studying precedes the transition from “New” to “Due”. Reviewing moves the verses between “Due” and “Known”.
After adding a verse, it can be studied using different kinds of games. To start studying, tap on the verse and on the study symbol in the top bar.
- Obfuscate: Hide some words and try to recite the verse by filling in the missing words from your memory. Tap on an obfuscated word in order to reveal it.
- Puzzle: Build the verse by tapping on the correct word.
- Line Up: Display empty lines or first letters by tapping on the icon on the left (on the bottom bar). Advance by tapping on “+word” or “+line”. Try to recite the word or line before you reveal it.
- Typing: Build the verse by typing the first letter of each word. After committing the verse to memory swipe the flashcard to the right in order to move it to the “Due” list. From now on, the verse takes part in the reviewing process.
Select the tab “Due”. If you would like to change the order of the verses, tap on “Due” again. In order to start the reviewing session, tap on the button with the outlined flashcard icon at the bottom.
When reference and topic are displayed, recite the verse from memory, then flip the card to check if you were correct. If you prefer reciting the verse line by line (for editing line breaks see Adding and Editing Verses), tap the icon in the bottom right corner for each line.
If you need a little help to get started, press the help button in the bottom left corner to get a hint. You can skip a card by swiping it up.
If you remembered the verse correctly, swipe it to the right in order to move it to the “Known” box. This will increase the verse’s level by one (until the review limit in the account’s settings is reached). If it was not quite correct, swipe it to the left. This will reset the verse’s level to 0. This might sound a bit shocking, but it is very important for the review frequency of the verse. Verses with low levels show up for review more often. This helps to reinforce your memory of a verse before it gets forgotten. Spaced Repetition ensures that you repeat challenging passages frequently, but also don’t forget familiar passages.
Spaced RepetitionMemorisation is most efficient when the brain recalls the learned items in increasing intervals. Remember Me uses an exponential algorithm to calculate the intervals (similar to Pimsleur). If your account’s review frequency is set to “Normal”, you will review your verses after 1, 2, 4, 8, 16… days. The other component of the algorithm is resetting a verse’s level to 0 after a failed review (similar to Leitner). This makes sure that difficult passages are reviewed more often than easy ones.
If you want to review the references of the passages reviewed today only, press long on the label “Reviewed today”, before you start. Select the tab “Known” and tap on the button with the filled flashcard icon at the bottom.
Remember Me shuffles the cards and presents their passages. Try to recite the reference from memory, and flip the card by tapping it to check if you are correct. If you are, swipe the card to the right. If you aren’t, swipe it to the left. The app will get the card back to you during the review session until you remember it.
You can skip a card by swiping it up. Unlike reviewing passages, the app does not keep track of your reviewing progress. This mode of reviewing is more like a quiz you should take once in a while to refresh your knowledge of the references.
- Number of Inverse Flashcards: Maxmimum number of flashcards per reference review session.
- Include Reference in Learning: Include the reference in studying and reviewing verses.
- Review Frequency: How often the verses will show up for review.
- Review Limit: Maximum number of days until to the next review. Limits indirectly the number of levels that can be achieved.
6 - Grouping and Filtering by Labels
Quick filtering: Tap on a label in the menu on the right to display its verses exclusively. Press long on it to exclude to exclude it.
Create or Edit a Label
Select “Edit labels” from the main menu on the left in order to create, edit, or delete a label. Recently deleted labels can be restored online from the waste bin.
Attach Labels to Verses
Select one or multiple verses by tapping on their badge on the left or by pressing long on a verse. Tap on the label icon of the context menu on top. Check labels you want to attach to the selected verses, uncheck labels you want to remove from the selected verses, and tap the button to save the changes (disk icon).
Filter Verses by Label
The visibility of the verses grouped by labels is set in the labels’ drawer on the right (see above). You can change the state of the labels/groups by tapping or pressing on them. The icons have the following meanings:
- Crossed out label: Verses with this label are always hidden.
- Outlined label: Verses with this label are visible unless some labels are in exclusive mode.
- Filled label: Verses with this label are visible, and all other verses are hidden.
Some automatic filters and filter settings are available:
- Reviewed today: This filter filters verses reviewed today (depending on other filter settings)
- All verses: Tapping this option changes the labels’ modes so that all verses are visible.
- Unlabelled verses: Tapping this option changes the labels’ modes so that only unlabelled verses are visible.
Export Verses as File (CSV)
Open the additional menu on the right (three dots, mobile app only) and choose “Export to file”. This creates a new file in the CSV format with the currently displayed verses. You can share the exported file with other apps in order to store it or send it to someone else. CSV files can be opened with table calculation applications.
By choosing the option “Import from file” you can load verses from a file stored on your device.
7 - Importing and Sharing Collections
A verse collection is a published label.
Find a Collection of Verses
Select “Collections” from the left navigation drawer and use the search function (magnifying glass icon) to find what you are looking for. Tap on a collection card to see more details, and tap the download icon in the top right corner in order to import the collection’s verses into your account. A label with the collection’s name makes the new verses distinguishable from your other verses.
Publish and Share a Collection of Verses
Select “Collections” from the left navigation drawer and tap on the “Publish” button (upload icon in the top right corner) in order to see a list of all labels that are attached to verses. A crossed out world icon means, the label and its verses are not visible to other users.
Tap on a label and provide a description of your collection in the form that pops up. To abort or to unpublish a previously published collection, tap the crossed out world icon at the bottom of the form. All publication details are deleted and the verses hidden from other users. When you are ready to publish, tap the highlighted world icon at the bottom of the form. All publication details are saved and the collection will appear in other users’ search results.
Embed Your Verse Collection in Your Website
Since Remember Me 6 is also available as web application, you can embed a collection or a verse of a collection in your website. Visitors of your website will be able to use Remember Me’s games and flashcards right on your website. All you need to do is add an iframe element to your html code with the address of your own verse collection on web.remem.me, e.g.
<iframe src="https://web.remem.me/collections/127700899409706" style="border:none;" width="320" height="480" title="Our Memory Verse Collection"> </iframe>
which results in this:
8 - Audio Features
Repeatedly listening to verses supports your memorizing process. Recording your voice while reviewing a verse strenghtens your knowledge of if.
Listen to a Box of Verses
In order to start listening to verses, select the box you want to listen to. Listening to verses in your box “New” makes you familiar with them. Listening to verses in your box “Known” refreshes your knowledge. Press the play button to start listening. Using the buttons at the bottom you can pause, stop, or skip a verse.
You can have Remember Me repeat all verses or a single verse or slow it down using the settings button (cog wheel) next to the control buttons.
If you would like to include the reference after the passage or to listen to verses by topic, activate the corresponding setting in “Account”.
Listen while Studying a Verse
With a flashcard in front of you, you can start playback by pressing the play button in the top right corner. During the study games (see Studying), Remember Me reads each word or sentence you reveal. You can turn off speech using the settings menu (cog wheel) in the game.
Record and Play Back Your Own Recitation
The flashcards in your box “Due” (see Reviewing Passages) sport a microphone button at the bottom. Tap it to record your recitation of the passage. Pressing the button again or flipping the card stops the recording. After revealing the passage, playback starts and makes it easier for you to check if your recitation was correct.
9 - Managing Prayer Cards and Devotions
Create a Prayer Account
Create a separate account for texts that you want to read regularly rather than memorise. Since the references probably play a minor role, you can select the option “Learn by Topic” when setting up the account.
You can add texts in the “New” box or import a collection of texts from “Collections”. Some kind of numbering is useful as reference. For example, if you split up a collection of long prayers into individual prayer cards - such as the books by Stormie Omartian - the references could be 1a, 1b, 1c, 2a, 2b etc. References are used to sort the cards. It is also helpful to add a topic to each prayer.
Sort the prayers by topic or by reference (alphabetically) by tapping the “New” tab a second time. It is best to say the prayers aloud and in your own dialect or words. This way, even preconceived prayers can turn into a personal conversation with God. Write down impressions and thoughts that become important to you during prayer below the prayer text (“Edit verse”). In this way, your prayer account also becomes your prayer diary and reflects part of your communication with God. Move the prayer after your daily devotion to the “Due” box to keep track of your prayer progress. The “Known” tray is not needed for prayers.
Reusing a Prayer Collection
If you want to start over with a prayer collection after you have completed it, select a prayer (long press), then “select all”, and move the whole collection back to the “New” box.
