[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - Business executives, sales specialists, recruiters, networking professionals and everyone else who has a hard time keeping track of all of the names and faces among their many LinkedIn connections, can now download the unique new must-have app Link Quiz from Jacob Favre, and put themselves on the fast-track to better memory - and perhaps a more successful career, too.
Link Quiz scans a user's LinkedIn connections, and pulls down each name, headline/job title, location, industry and image (as an HTTP - no graphics file is actually downloaded to the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch).
Users scroll through app to view their connections, which can be conveniently filtered by company, location or industry. Whenever they come across someone who they want to commit to memory, they simply tap and continue scrolling.
After building a set - whether containing a handful or hundreds of connections - users start the quiz, and are tested to see how many names and faces they can correctly identify.
And to make sure that they remember for the long-term, the app uses a rote memorization approach, which obliges users to correctly identify each connection's name and face three times at random intervals.
Plus, users can create a special VIP set, so they can hone in on the people who they really need to know - such as those attending an upcoming conference or meeting. And users who want to refresh their memories will appreciate that the app saves the last quiz, which can be repeated as many times as desired.
"These days, many networking professionals and others have hundreds, even thousands of LinkedIn connections, and trying to remember everyone's name and face is no easy task," commented Jacob Favre. "That's why LinkQuiz is so helpful. It's a must-have app for anyone who wants to make a great impression when they meet a connection face to face. And the quizzes are fun, and can be taken anytime and from anywhere you have an internet connection!"
