Needs some work

:
Ran into two facts that contradicted each other. There are also duplicate facts in some cases. Some facts are questionable and I think need checking. Also, no new facts are added once you make it through the alphabet. I agree, this app needs improvement.

3/5 stars

Sloppy app with really ineresting facts

:
A very sloppy and bare bones compilation of facts that really are interesting and thought provoking.

Badly needs editing and sprucing up but fascinating nonetheless.
