Ratings and Reviews
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Nothing has been posted, but I'm wondering if the app is no longer being updated & the developer is no longer posting facts?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.
Where are the updates?
This app is nicely designed and the facts are fun and interesting, but it seems the app's developers only post new facts in spurts and it often goes for weeks without new updates. In fact at the time of this review no new facts have been posted in over three months. I finally decided to delete it as I'm tired of seeing the same old facts every time I open it.
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
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
