The use of the flash card method has a proven track record for improving intelligence. The Dots Card application for iPhone and iPad is based on this method, which uses Doman/Shichida system, which has been used by a lot of families in the past for educating their children.
However, in the manual flash card method (not the iPhone and iPad application), there is a tendency for the dots to be covered by the fingers, and there are times that some cards are forgotten.
