I love seeing things built in 24 hours. Great job on that.

The idea is so-so. There is probably a low upper-limit to the number of things you want to remember this way. More than 5 text messages like this a day will get a bit annoying I think.

Take a look at memrise.com. They see to have the learning things through repetition thing down.

Great job though, and keep working on it.

Yep, Memrise is awesome. We think that spaced repetition has the potential to be more mainstream ... it's quite an empowering use of technology, and there are lots of similar cognitive enhancing tricks that are in the same vein. You're right - more than 5 text messages isn't great, but down the line we're hoping to create mobile apps to make the reminder process much more streamlined.
