Every year, hundreds of millions of people face the challenge of studying a new skill, subject, or foreign language. For too many of us, this learning process is brutally slow, boring, inconvenient, ineffective, and impermanent. Brainscape is here to change that. We apply the latest in cognitive science research to make studying as accessible, fun, and effective as humanly possible.

Over the past few years, Brainscape has built a team of top learning scientists, software engineers, user experience designers, and education industry executives to redevelop the way people study for the next millennium. Every member of our founding team was recruited because they had previously built an adaptive study product of their own. We are all collectively committed to the mission of optimizing the way people study

Brainscape's core experience is based on a scientifically proven adaptive flashcards algorithm that repeats concepts in a pattern that is optimized to your pace of learning. Beginning as an Excel spreadsheet in a cognitive science lab at Columbia University, Brainscape has since evolved into a robust web & mobile learning ecosystem. Millions of people around the world are now using Brainscape to dramatically amplify their study results.

But we're only just getting started.

In the coming decades, the Brainscape team will continue to apply the latest cognitive science research regarding the patterns of repetition, color, font style, social interactions, breaks, sounds, humor, animations, achievements, and rewards that best improve our brain's speed of learning. We will not stop innovating until learning is as easy as simply beaming knowledge straight into our brains.

The way you revise very much depends on you, as a person, and your preferences. Many prefer to record their notes in the form of mindmaps, which is particularly common for those with Dyslexia. iMindMap digitises this classic revision method.

With the app, you can create mindmaps using its built-in sketch tool and digital add-ons - including some snazzy freehand branches. You can even record audio notes and have them to sync to the cloud so you can access your creations from multiple devices.
