Memory Buddy helps you memorize vocabulary words while surfing the web, reading email, or running other apps. It accomplishes this by flashing back the words periodically on your Android notification bar (see screen shot), irrespective of which app you are presently running. You may also set Memory Buddy to speak the words using voice synthesis. Memory retention is naturally increased through visual and aural repetition of the words.
Memory Buddy is free of charge, Ad-Free and comes with twelve pre-installed word lists:
SAT (450 words)
PSAT (250 words)
SSAT (380 words)
TOEFL (500 words)
GRE (500 words)

LSAT (400 words)
AP US History (200 terms)
AP Biology (430 terms)
AP English (170 terms)
AP Music (245 terms)
Dolch 220 (220 words)
You can create new lists by either importing from the SD card or by typing the items. Your lists may be shared with others via email as well as Google Docs. Audio recording is also supported when creating new items you want to commit to memory. Please see FAQ at the developer website: www.iguanafoot.net for additional instructions on importing and exporting lists.
