Today I Learned

By Basic Function

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Get fun facts, tips, history, pop-culture, tech, life hacks, current events, and more.

Today I Learned curates most its content from Reddit by hand. We also pull in factoids from other locations including books, personal experience, Snapple lids, and other random fun fact websites. Each fun fact is put into context and written so you don't have to click through to get the point.

Here's an example:

"Today I learned… that you can locate the side of the car where your gas tank is located by looking at the arrow pointing in its direction on your gas gauge."

TIL has over 12,000 hand crafted factoids and is updated every month.

TIL is perfect for road trips, parties, hangouts, and long plane or train rides. You can even re-phrase the factoids into a question to create a guessing game with your friends.

Learn something new every day.

Customer Reviews

Please update

There are a lot of interesting facts on here, (altough some of them are BS) but after about 10 minutes of browsing, I will keep seeing the same things. A lot of the posts are kind of pointless, like ones about what is gonna happen in 2012, or stuff like that. I also think there should be a feature to go back; sometimes I accidently touch my screen and it will skip a fact, never to be seen again.


This is a old app that hasn't been updated. I can't even open the app without it crashing. GARBAGE!!

False Facts

These "Facts" were poorly researched, and unverified.
This makes the app, in my opinion, useless.
