“I used Notion and Anki. But I had a nagging feeling that there must be a better way to learn... With Traverse, I've finally found it. It's so much easier to make connections, and save it all in my flashcards.”
What's your life going to look like with Traverse? You'll have a reliable process for mastering anything. You will build deep comprehension and long-term memory. And the best part? It almost comes naturally as you're having fun exploring the app. Read about the science behind our method
Organize your ideas on the mindmap, a whiteboard as infinite as your brain. Add notes and resources to do a brain dump. Group notes and use color coding to form chunks of knowledge.
Draw connections on your map and generate AHA-moments of insight. Work out deeper thoughts in writing, and create bidirectional links directly from your notes.
Memory is essential to bring your learning into practice. Our smart flashcards help you review any item just when you are about to forget it, using spaced repetition and active recall.
Tackle though topics together. Share any map with your peers or colleagues by just sending a link.

I felt the same way five years ago, when I tried to learn Mandarin. The number of characters and their complexity simply felt overwhelming, and there seemed to be no way to make it stick.
But I have good news for you: it’s not you, it’s just your method of learning!
If there’s one thing that cognitive science has discovered over the past 50 years, it’s that there is no such thing ‘bad memory’ or ‘being bad at math’.
With the right methods, most people can master almost anything.
That day, when I hit a personal barrier trying to learn Mandarin, was the start of my quest of discovering these methods. Since that day, I’ve read hundreds of research papers (and, let’s be honest, watched easier explanations by popular YouTubers).
My goal was simple: to distill the research into a practical method. For myself, and for others learning though topics.
That is what I have done (and am still improving every day) by building Traverse.
I discovered that some of the most effective methods are actually the least well-known!
My goal with Traverse is to make it easy for you to study using techniques that work. Without having to research anything, but simply byusing the app.
Some key principles it incorporates are:
letting you use visual encoding to gain deep and integrative concept understanding
flattening the forgetting curve with cognitive load optimisation
optimally spacing out revisions to learn more in less time
using spatial memory for long-term retention and creative imagination
