"Wow! I didn't know that"

Reviewed by / Oct 25, 2013

5001 Amazing Facts is a compilation of curiosities that help improve your general knowledge

Don't know how to start a lift conversation? 5001 Amazing Facts is going to help you with that. "Did you know that...?" is going to be your favorite phrase. Learn everyday one or more facts and improve your general knowledge just by taking a glance at your mobile device home screen.

Facts are written on cards you can slide. Start from the beginning or from the last slide or search facts by keywords. That's perfect if you want to learn some facts related to a specific topic. In addition, you can "favorite" those you like best and access them quickly from the favorites section. You can also share those facts with your friends via Facebook, Twitter, SMS and e-mail. In addition, there's a 4x1 home screen widget that displays one fact at a time.

The app is backed by a powerful concept: our need to learn interesting things. What's more, it brings that new knowledge in quick digestible pills. Just two catches should be mention: first, it would be great having more widget sizes and set its update frequency (or even manually slide facts from the widget); second, design should be enhanced, it's too sober.

    despite some interesting and fun facts, most other are just bulk, misinterpretations or plain lies..... 3 stars though for encouraging skeptical thinking , if you payed atention at school you'll sort them out easilly
