9500+ Cool Facts for iPhone

Price: $0.99    Score: 5/10    By Shaun Campbell9,500+ Cool Facts Pro

Cool Facts is a really simple app. Developed by Webworks and Applications, Cool Facts is basically just a collection of interesting facts about random things. While not the most innovative or original idea, I do quite enjoy random interesting pieces of information – and this app has 9500 of them. For example (taken from Cool Facts) – did you know that:

  • Ketchup was sold in the 1830’s as medicine
  • For every ‘normal’ webpage, there are five porn pages
  • The average chocolate bar has 8 insects’ legs in it
  • Fingernails grow fastest on the hand you favor
  • Only 1% of bacteria cause disease
  • The U.S. military’s dried food rations can be re-hydrated with urine
  • Large kangaroos can cover more than 30 feet with each jump
  • President George W. Bush and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner are cousins
  • All species of beetles are edible
  • More than 25% of the world’s forests are in Siberia

Cool Facts displays one fact on the screen at a time. To move onto the next piece of random trivia you simply swipe your finger across the screen. On the whole the ‘facts’ are interesting and amusing – even if there is no way to check if any of them are actually true.

Cool Facts requires the iPhone 2.2 software update and is compatible with both the iPhone & the iPod Touch.
