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!

I love this app
Quite a few of the facts aren’t true.
Applestolove on 6/18/2018
The app is really cool and I really enjoy the option of being able to “verify” the validity of the fact. However, there should be an option or way to report a fact that isn’t true. I’ve seen a few and pressed the verify option which even acknowledges that the fact is false… Also, several of the facts are repeated. Cool app, but it stands to be much better.
Many repeated facts and a few incorrect
ThereIsNoFreedom on 2/21/2018
I’ve only gotten to Fact 247, and there have been a few that I’ve seen, word for word, repeated. One fact that is entirely incorrect is about the human brain. The “fact” says the brain stops growing at age 18, when really it stops developing and growing between the ages of 23 and 25.
Amazing App!👍👌😃
UncleFlacco on 2/20/2018
I love this app, the facts are completely unknown and makes me laugh every time I read a new one. Although, sometimes they repeat some facts which is fine. Overall, it's a app to get for sure.
Take with a grain of salt
Palpadude on 1/30/2018
There is absolutely no credibility or fact checking in these “facts”. Some of them even directly contradict each other, and there are a lot of repeats.
Many facts not completely correct and plain out false
The born inspector on 1/22/2018
Who’s gathering this information? In this time it is easy to verify information. Get it together.
Amazing App
ShaneBirk22 on 1/4/2018
This App is AMAZING!!!! The only thing is it sometimes repeats a fact. Otherwise.....it is a great interesting time killer. I love it!!!!
Not all are correct
Just me sitting. Here on 12/24/2017
Not all are correct
Not all are true.
DreamBigDreams on 12/19/2017
There are several false claims. So, it is giving credit to people who did not earn what the facts are based on. The laser printer for example was not invented by a woman as it claims.
Merena on 11/23/2017
So much Information!!
Waste of time? Not
DVDick on 11/19/2017
Next time they drag me to a cocktail party, I’m going to spend thirty minutes on this app so I’ll be able to contribute to the small talk. Or in some cases, the Big Talk.
Fun every time

Love how easy it is to use. I also like how random the facts are. Great free app not a lot of ads or pop ups.

Knittinjen on 8/26/2017
Very interesting. Just the thing for times I want to do something but don't have time or energy to do some task. Just open this up and flip through, marking the really good ones to memorize and share randomly in conversation.
Wrong on invention by women fact
Simpsonsaddict92 on 8/17/2017
3 stars because it says the bullet proof vest was invented by a women. Not true a former Marine who delivered pizzas in Detroit came up with idea and invented the bullet proof vest after shooting armed robbers who tried to attack him. While delivering pizza. This was in the early 70's Not totally accurate.

Kd tiger on 7/16/2017
I couldn't help to share these interesting facts that and I still thing about how one of them was how women invented a bunch of protective gear.
Better than watching the news these days
Willrags on 7/14/2017
It's "time out" for adults....as long as you don't take every fact As Gospel, you will enjoy time spent and guarantee it will at least spark your sleeping brain a little. It's FUN....."JUST DO IT"

Cool app bcz the info bits are hilarious as they are fascinating 🤓
It's alright. Haha
fhs jabbing on 5/24/2017
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
EPG21 on 5/23/2017
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
