I personally use a combination of my phone and computer to memorise. I am currently using this website and the app of the same site for both http://quran.ksu.edu.sa/. You can read more about it here (My favourite hifdh/memorisation tool so far).
I’m going to give you a step by step guide to what I do in-shaa Allaah. It’s for a specific program, but the functions that I use can be found in many different computer programs and apps so you should be able to use the same method by making a few small changes in-shaa Allaah.
So here goes (I’ll be using this picture to guide you through with numbers to show you exactly what I click in case you want to use the same website/app) (more…)
