CoolFacts iPhone App Review.
Did you know that chewing a gum while cutting onions can help a person from producing tears? Or that cats cannot taste sweet things? Or that we are basically color blind when we're born? Well, neither did we until we came across this fun and useful iPhone app that at the tap of the screen gives you one of over 6500 cool facts about anything from human beings to animals, plants, the Earth, history or geography.
The idea behind the app is simple. The user is served one cool fact he wouldn't otherwise know about from a pretty comprehensive database of over 6500 interesting entries. The facts span over a pretty wide array of areas, ranging from history, biology, astrology, human life, animals and consumer goods. By tapping the iPhone screen, CoolFacts displays another random fact, funny, interesting, stunning or simply things to make you go "Get outta here!" or "That's the craziest thing I've heard!" Navigation is pretty basic and simple. CoolFacts allows the user to either tap the screen, swipe in any direction or simply shake the device to get the next cool fact.
CoolFacts is the perfect app for those trivia nights spent with friends or for those long boring trips to and from home. Its database seems to be a never-ending stream of facts and information. Sure enough, skeptics would challenge their usefulness and even their coolness. But it's all a matter of taste, and the fact that the app is provided free of charge in the Appstore definitely makes it worthwhile to look at.
I would welcome an upgrade allowing the user to add a specific fact to favorites or to send it via email or SMS to a friend. Depending on user interest, I'm sure some of these facts are not just fun to learn, but also useful to remember. It could also be interesting to have facts somehow sorted into categories, and let the user choose an area of interest from which the app to provide random facts.
