Yak Tack: Mobile App – Broaden your vocabulary Simply

Yak Tack is an application for Andriod and iOS that helps people remember words. People are using Yak Tack to remember words. Yak Tack uses a simple, scientifically proven technique called spaced repetition to get people past the Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve when learning new words.

Spaced repetition is a scientifically proven technique used to boost memory recall by flattening the Forgetting Curve. Yak Tack uses it. It combats a natural phenomenon called memory decay, in which words we remember become harder to retrieve over time.

Yak Tack uses an algorithm based on the Leitner system that re-surfaces words at expanding intervals just before they fully decay, which ironically strengthens one’s ability to remember them.
