I have been extremely pleased with the Scripture by Heart software. It packs a whole lot into the little size and price! My kids are really enjoying the diverse games for memorization and review, and they love the fact that you can schedule verses for review. It is a good motivator! :-)
This software allows you to change the sounds, screensaver, and a few other things dependent on the game. It really, really makes learning scripture fun!
I have passed this up as a possibility whenever I have been ordering in the past, because it didn't seem like it would be very helpful. I wish I had used it years ago!
One other aspect of it that I really enjoy is that it allows you to update whenever new verses are available (for summer BB and for Nationals) for free! It not only saves a ton of time, but it helps me to feel confident that what they are memorizing is accurate to what they will be judged upon. If I were to type it in by hand, I might make a mistake and cost my children point deductions. I love that it is already done for me!
All in all, I would say this is an excellent and inexpensive opportunity for your children to really do well memorizing (and that is what it is all about- hiding God's word in our hearts.) :-)

We have used many different programs to help with memorization but my kids love this one the best. It is well organized and has a lot of variety for memorizing and quizzing.
