WHAT IS THE SURPRISE?
The latest update includes a free bonus - There's a "Play Brutal Illusion" button inside the app. Go check it out and see what it does. It's really amazing once you wrap your mind around it and "see" the illusion.
If you don't believe the illusion is real - just ask someone to watch it the same time you do. Half the time, you'll see a different thing than the other person will :)
WHAT IS THIS APP
9000 Awesome Facts Pro is an application for iPhone and iPod Touch devices, which has 9000 of those random, sometimes useless, but still - great pieces of knowledge that people love so much hearing about.
For example, did you know, that people who are lying to you tend to look up and to the left (their left)?
Or, that there is no word in the English language that rhymes with the word "month"?
We have 9000 of those, and we're pretty sure you won't easily put it down once you get your hands on it.
YOU WILL LOVE IT
The app has clean, and simple interface, which looks great on your iPhone or iPod Touch and the interactions (scrolling, tapping) you do - feel natural and relaxing.
We have a huge database of facts - 9000 right now, and the database will constantly grow through free updates.
Reading through the facts is a pleasurable and rewarding experience:
You scroll down, and see a random facts appear each time in a beautiful and smooth animation.
If you don't want to scroll, just tap anywhere on the screen, and it will automatically scroll to the next fact.
The background is dark, as to lower the strain on your eyes, and the text is big and bright so you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy !
You can easily send the current fact you're seeing to a friend or add it to your favorites.
You can also turn off randomization, so that you go through all the facts in consequential order (hence avoiding repeats).

What's New in Version 2.2
- Added a cool visual illusion thingie, a free bonus for Awesome Facts users (tilt the device left to get the menu, and check out the "Play Brutal Illusion" button. There is an Info screen inside it which will explain what is it about).
- Added new facts & weird laws
- Removed reworded facts (about 40)
- Many spelling & grammar errors fixed
- Removed reported false facts
this app is great when i'm bored but i must point out that a third of these facts are worded strangely in away that makes them incorrect. The laws stated are mostly outdated. And many facts on here are INCORRECT indefinitely, for example:
-"Man are the only animals that cry." (No, there are many animals that are known to cry)
-"73% of Manila citizens smoke." (This must be a very outdated statistic for most Manila folk I know dont smoke)
-"It is physically impossible for you to lick your elbow." (I actually know someone who can lick their elbow quite well)
These are just some of the inaccurate ones but I bet you'll find some more.
P.S. The elbow licking fact was corrected by replacing it with "99% of people can't lick their elbow."
Fun, but far from accurate.
While this program is certainly a cute way of disseminating interesting information, I strongly advise people to exercise some scrutiny with regard to any "fact" provided. While some of them are correct (Buzz Aldrin's mother's maiden name was in fact Moon), I have looked into a few "facts" I thought suspicious, and found while they are popular to believe on the internet, they aren't "true." While I don't mean to be harsh with my score of only two stars, I do mean to reflect that the staff may want to more thoroughly review what information they term as facts, even if in the grand scheme, it may not really matter if a whale's "member" (iTunes restricts the posting of the proper name, it would seem) is actually called a Dork (one of the many facts in this program that, according to a few marine biologists friends of mine, is not true). Worth a dollar, for sure. But not necessarily accurate.
Passes the time.
This app is a fun little app, but with one major flaw. If even one fact is incorrect how do I know that even more are that way. How do I know if I am just filling my brain with useless junk. I don't want to say a fact to someone and have them actually know the real answer and make me look like an idiot. Another thing, the update was supposed to fix grammer. I updated hapily since there were so many errors. The first fact I looked at after the update was spelled wrong, LOL. Please fix these issues and I will give 5 stars, but for now a fact app that gives incorrect conflicting misspelled facts gets 3 stars.
