"Awesome Facts Pro was the first, is (arguably) the slickest, the most downloaded and has a delightfully obvious interface, which for me, at a dollar, makes it definitely the one to go for.." by Steve Litchfield, iphoneapplicationlist.com
Awesome Facts Pro was voted by users as the most polished, full-featured and constantly updated facts app currently available in the iTunes App Store. Don't be fooled by other half-baked low-quality fact apps littered around.

Pros and Cons
By: kewl kid - 4-Jun-2009
•The number of facts (4500)
•The accuracy of the facts
•The capibility to search
•The 'filter by category' option
•The capibility to see the number of facts per category and the number of read/unread facts per category
•No current bugs
•Minimal to no spelling mistakes
•App doesn't crash (if it does for you; it's cause you're dumb)
•Shake or tap for next fact
•No repeats until all facts are read
•No ability to turn off the 'shake for next fact' feature
•No 'filter by search results' option
•I had 1 more but I forgot it
The pros by far outweigh the cons. This app is amazing.
By: j.o.n.n.y. - 29-Apr-2009
this is a great app and so what if some of the facts arent true its still a great time waster and some of the facts just made me and my mates laugh out loud lolz if you dont already have it you should defently download it
some ideas for improving it
1. use a draging move with the finger to get to next fact and back to the last one
2. have the facts in some sort of order ,not so they follow each other, keep them random but just so you dont keep getting the same ones again and again
apart from that totaly great
By: iLLuminO - 31-May-2009
I "bought" this app when is was free. But $0.99 for an app like this is a good bargain! Use it to show off to friends at parties and outings! You probably can't resist tapping the Next Fact button. :D.
The app has improved dramatically since previous versions. But I would like to comment that in the previous version, after every 250 facts, the app would crash and return me to the springboard. It this a problem with the facts such that each fact uses some RAM in the iPhone to the point where after many facts, too much RAM is used? I hope this problem is fixed now though.
Yankie Doodle doo doo
By: ToddSmash - 19-Aug-2009
Actually some fun facts in here, but not very well researched. I'm also very glad I got it while it was free as many of the facts related to countries other than the United States of America are mostly incorrect or untrue. I would advise better research before the next update comes out if you want to be held as an "Awesome" source of facts. Thanks all the same though for the laughs and the laughs at the ignorance.
By: The happy duck - 07-Jul-2009
A great app with interesting and genuine facts. Luckily I got this when it was free but now there is a 59p price tag: you should still get it though despite some of these quite frankly retarded reviewers.
I despise reviewers like joncon1234 who dont submit useful reviews but instead slate other reviewers (although the ha cool nice guy was a bit of a smartarse despite his critisising of the genuinity of one certain fact, although theres about 3299 other facts which are all completely right). He was deservedly proved wrong for trying to be a smartarse but to be honest people don't want this clogging up the review section they want proper reviews.
P.s in a way i have already ridiculed a reviewer but i might as well ridicule another because one reviewer 'dani cohen' was so bad at spelling I felt like bursting out laughing but yeah Im finished now but I think I have written too much and now Im practicly talking to myself. O.k. Bye. This time Im going. O.k bye.
By: Dani Cohen - 29-Jun-2009
My review for the first version: "To be honest, I was a little bit skeptical about this app. After I have read the first few facts and all of them were so funny and interesting I have changed my mind. Get it! This is a must have!"
My current impressions: the upgrades are just getting the application better and better. It is not only highly recommended, it is essencial. You can search for the facts, can browse by categories and also add your favorite ones to a list. Don't wait too long or the price may get higher!
Support the dev.
By: Awesome-O3 - Sep 2, 2009
Support the developer and yourself, and buy this app. Not only is there many of new things to learn and share with your friends, but 99.999% of them are true. Just a few of them are either jokes or mistakes, but still come with a cheap laugh.
Verdict: 4 Wendy's Chicken Nuggets or 4000+ facts? Both obviously. Only $1.98 plus tax.
But seriously this application offers 12+ hours of fun. Buy it. This kid needs money for classes.

From simply animals and insects, food and drinks, to the outer limits of the universe. Amazing facts is your one way ticket into it all. Fascinating, intriguing, absorbing are all words that would describe this application. Every time it opens, you learn. You learn statistics, laws and history. You understand more of what is all around you. I personally have yet to find a superior application. Some of which fifteen dollars, but yet there’s no compare. This application will not let you down, you will not regret purchasing it. You have my word.
Scotland and England- or Britain?
By: Da iTunes Man - 30-Apr-2009
It seems as though there is a little argument going on between some Scottish people and English people.
What the Scottish person is saying is that when it's something good to come out of England, it's from England, when it's something bad, it from Britain. However, it is vice versa it something is from Scotland. i.e. If it's from Scotland and good, they say it's British, yet if its from Scotland and it's bad, it's Scottish.
A prime example of this is Andy Murray (tennis player, for anyone who doesn't know). He was born in Scotland, and has lived in Scotland all his life. Last year, at Wimbledon, he got so far on through the tournament, and was all over the news - as "the best British tennis player". However, as soon as he was put out (which was in about the semi-finals), he somehow went from being British to Scottish.
Another good example is Scotland's debts. See, England are quite happy to say that Britain is one country. But when it comes to Scotland's debts: "it's all Scotland's debts, why should we help them out of bankruptcy". I thought we were all one big country. That's like saying, if you have an itchy left wrist, that your not going to scratch it with your right hand because it's part of your left hand so "why should I". If you know what I'm saying... basically, if we're all one, why are we moaning about having to help each other out, or about who's from what country. We're all from Britain, we're all British, there's no England, Scotland etc.- it's BRITAIN... UNITED KINGDOM!
Click "yes" once you have read this review, as all of Britain need to see it!

By: MushuXlll - 11-Jul-2009
Actaully, the thing about giving a horse and a loaded handgun to a person who is out of jail is acutally true. But it's a very old law. Look it up. But this app is awesome.
