"Love This App!" "Very Useful!" "Perfect!" "So Easy to Use!" "Great for my patients!"
See why thousands of users around the world are raving about this app!

People with memory impairments can become worried when they don't remember where they are or other important information. They may be unsafe when they forget to use a walker or apply the wheelchair breaks before standing. All of these facts and procedures can be engrained into memory using a repetitive and effective memory training procedure.

This Spaced Retrieval Therapy app uses the scientifically-proven method of spaced retrieval training to help people with dementia or other memory impairments to recall important information. Recalling an answer over multiplying intervals of time, such as 1 minute, 2 minutes, 8 minutes, and so on, helps to cement the information in memory.

Spaced Retrieval Therapy is an enhanced interval timer with independent data tracking and prompts. It automatically increases the time between prompts with correct responses and decreases it with incorrect ones. This app will help clinicians, family members, and students keep track of the intervals and performance as they practice up to 3 memory targets.

*Put away your stopwatch and paper - this app is all you need!

*Keeps track of expanding intervals and data so you don't have to

*Works in the background while doing other therapy exercises or using other apps

*Subtle sound and visual prompts let you know it’s time to ask again

*Tracks accuracy and data automatically, & emails you the finished report

"5 Stars - This app is a fantastic inclusion into my therapy toolbox. It is very useful in therapy and helps me keep track patient progress more efficiently." - App Store Review

Speech-Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Neuropsychologists, Teachers, Social Workers, and families can all use this simple technique & app to help clients and loved ones remember important information (names, safety procedures, orientation information, etc).

Recommended by top experts in memory training and dementia therapy, Spaced Retrieval Therapy will make your life easier and your therapy more efficient.

"***** Very Useful! I found this app to be extremely useful during therapy sessions. When juggling multiple activities it can be difficult to remember to cue a patient for each specific interval. This app makes spaced retrieval an easy way to incorporate prospective and short term memory tasks into treatment." - SLP on App Store Review

Please note: This app is a timer and tracks data. Targets should be individually selected for the memory-impaired person to be relevant and meaningful. This app is not intended to be used alone by the memory-impaired person, but as a therapy tool by a clinician or family member trained in this technique.

Makes SRT data collection effortless

Simple, easy way to quickly take data. The option to email the results of the therapy session streamlines documentation.

Great with my dementia patients!

I love this app for working with my patients with dementia. Spaced retrieval is excellent for helping individuals with dementia remember important things (names of caregivers, where they live, where to look if they need to find information, etc.). I love that with this app, I don't have to constantly check my watch to see if its time to ask the question again, or set my cell phones alarm clock for a dozen different time intervals. I haven't tried this with any of my patients other than those with dementia, but I am excited to do so in the future!



This is a glitchy app, and it doesn’t let you close your keyboard after entering the question. So then you are just stuck in limbo in front of the patient. It is useless and a waste of money.

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear you're frustrated! The keyboard should close if you hit Return or Keyboard Down after typing. If this is not working for you, please contact us at for assistance. We work hard to resolve all bugs and help our customers use our apps successfully.
