Logic of Lifetime Memory

According to Ebbinghaus’s forget curve, people get a stronger memory when they are able to recall it longer period of time.

So, Mocket gives tests in certain periods.

memory_duration

As shown on above picture, it gives tests everyday for first three days. After that, the period gets longer, and this helps users to memorize words for lifetime.
