What's a better way to waste your time than learning 10,513 new cool facts?

Simply SHAKE the iPhone/iPod to move to the next fact.

OR, Swipe left, swipe down, or tap the iPhone/iPod to move to the next fact. Swipe right, or swipe up to move to the previous fact.

Did you know that a group of geese on the ground is a "gaggle", and a group of geese in the air is a "skein"?

Did you know that like fingerprints, everyone's tongue print is different?

Did you know that a cup of gasoline, when ignited, has the same explosive power as 5 dynamite sticks?

***Note from Developer***
OK, I think we figured out what you guys meant by "doubles" :) What we did was scour through our facts one by one and deleted duplicates. However, facts still show up "randomly." As a result, because facts are chosen at random, you may encounter a fact that you've seen before. BUT, you'll notice that you didn't COLLECT a new fact, therefore, the fact collection counter will not be incremented. Please look forward to a new update that will allow you to go through these facts sequentially, instead of randomly. Thanks for the feedback!

Most facts are pretty cool but some are false, for example, the Vatican is not the only landlocked country surrounded by one other country. Lesotho is South Africa meets the description. But overall a good time filler.
If only all the facts were correct

Ex - fact 789 - Holland is a state in the Netherlands, it is not a country and the Netherlands does not fall into the most densely populated anything globally. Some facts are repeated several times. Most of the facts are fun, its a great idea - just needs an update with corrections.
Lots of fun

Review on cool facts
Tatyana Karpman on 2/28/2017
Fun all even w the errors
Lilwhitecate on 2/27/2017
This is just a "time waster" type of app... A lot of interesting n off the wall stuff and when I do come across an error I like Googling it or w some of the mathematical equations it tests your math skills from back in the day (in my case we're talking dinosaur times lol!) ... Idk about paying for the "premium version" I've read a few peeps mention.. Y would u really need to? Maybe if you're gonna b a contestant on "Jeopardy" ...just chill out and stop tearing this app apart... It's just a fun little app while waiting at the Dr's office or something.....
Keep it free
Waddles.A on 2/26/2017

Been using this app since I had iPhone 3GS. Too good...
ElvisAteMyDonuts on 2/19/2017
This game would be a lot better if it were factually accurate. Most facts are accurate but it sure is frustrating when you run into some that are absolutely wrong.
Very Cool!!
Texan_67 on 2/15/2017
Love it
Excellent Information!!
Feliwa on 2/14/2017

Loop__@esea on 2/10/2017
It's not a great app, lots of false information/repetition of facts, but I'm here to say that after 1.5 years i've read all 11k facts out of boredom lol
Cool Facts

Cool Facts provides interesting but humorous facts from all over the world.
Frequent false facts
BigYunus on 2/5/2017
Many facts are false! Some of them contradict eachother very often. Here's a simple example: fact # 251 claims that watermelons are berries. And then fact #336 contradicts it claiming that watermelon is a vegetable... one fact claims that great white shark has 3000 teeth... and in reality it does not! Lots of facts repeat themselves... the app looks so phony like an old windows xp software... Some facts are absurd like: banging your head against the wall uses 150 calories an hour?!?!? An apple, potato & onion taste same if eaten with a nose plugged... A lot of false facts that poor users may be biased by... I noticed users complain about frequent repetitions... it's never taken care of... not worth investing in premium version if there is.

So fun and informative!
ChaChaCheema on 12/30/2016
Really have enjoyed this randomly fun fact app over the years. So far so good and not having those annoying little ads popping up all over your screen where you spend more time trying to 'x' them away than enjoying the fun facts! Love it!
Need a fact checker.
T0pangaNerd on 12/24/2016
I love the idea of this app. However, so many of the facts are either complete rubbish, or are classic claims on various "amAzing factz U won't BELIEVE!!" lists that can't be verified anywhere (for instance, fact #110 "plastic containers take over 50,000 years to START decomposing"-- every source I can find states 450 - 1000 years, depending on size/thickness and type of plastics used). I looked up some of the more unbelievable ones to learn more about them and this is the result. Some are true of course, but it's pretty odd to have an app that is specifically designed to present facts provide so much nonfactual info, esp when a simple internet search would do the trick.
Great App
Duraturtle72 on 12/23/2016
Fun to use as a conversation starter.
