Our advanced algorithm converts your number into a "Major System" mnemonic using the fewest words possible by checking every possible combination of words.
The Major System is a simple technique to remember large numbers by using the consonant sounds of words to translate a set of words back into a number.
If you're not familiar with the Major System, don't worry, we'll show you how!
Want proof that it works?
How hard do you think it will be to remember Pi to 11 digits?
Close your eyes and try to repeat that. Not easy, right?
What about this?
A METEOR landed on and killed my favorite TULIP. Then an ANGEL sent me an EMAIL saying the tulip was in heaven.
Now close your eyes and try to repeat that story? I bet you can do it immediately after a single read without even trying.
Well the keywords of that story can be converted back into the digits of Pi using the simple rules of the Major System.
The "M" sound is translated to 3.
The "T" (or "D") sound translates to 1.
The "R" sound to 4.
Here's a table of each sound and the number it translates to. See if you can translate the mnemonic you just learned back into Pi. Remember, it's the *sounds* that matter, not the letters! Vowels sounds and some other sounds like H and W are ignored.
Major System Translation Table:
S, Z, or soft C as in Ace or Zoo -> 0
T or D as in Tea or Odd -> 1
N as in Nay or Knee -> 2
M as in Mow or Aim -> 3
R as in Row or Ear -> 4
L as in Lay or Eel -> 5
J or soft G as in Joy or Edge -> 6
K, NG, or hard C as in Key, Quay, or Hang
F or V as in Foe or Halve -> 8
B or P as in Bay or Ape -> 9

This app has helped me remember many numbers that are important in life. After taking a few minutes I learned the mnemonic it was easy to remember the numbers by creating stories. Very good app and well built.
