Owl is a daily fact app that doesn't suck. The facts are actually interesting, it's beautifully designed, and simple.
The facts are handpicked from reddit and all credit goes to their awesome users.
Facts are front and center. To get the current day's fact, just pull to refresh. Done.
Sharing what you learned is easy. Tap and hold on a fact to share via Twitter or Facebook. You could also copy the fact or view the sources for it.
In settings, you can schedule when you want to receive, or if you want to receive, a daily notification. You can also switch between the light or dark theme.
Stop reading this and go read some amazing facts. You won't be disappointed :)

Love checking this app, but.....
I definitely have enjoyed the randomness of all the facts presented on this app for the past year or so. For that reason & the ease of use of the app, I would give it 5 stars, but there hasn't been any new info in almost 10 days, & there have been many fact-less days this summer & fall. So bcs of that, I'm giving it 4 stars.
Nothing has been posted, but I'm wondering if the app is no longer being updated & the developer is no longer posting facts? That would be nice to know bcs if that's the case, I'd delete it to free up space for something else.
Why is it ok to write statistics about how many Aryan Brotherhood members are in jail and what percentage of murders they commit in prison. Not that I give a crap about the AB, but I don't see you
putting stats about black crime up. I guess that would be racist....Pffff Otherwise, this is a very informative application
They dont always post facts everyday but most of the time they do. Just noticed, though, that they spelled Iliad wrong by adding an extra "L"
Anyways this is a great fun fact app. Just needs better proof reader at some points and they need to keep up with a fact a day ratio. Other than that. GREAT, AWESOME APP TO HAVE AND KEEP!!
