    Why not turn this into a "2000 riddles" instead of "2000 facts"? With riddles users can at least have something to do instead of just reading. This program has no originality in the current state as it's just a bunch of phrases copied from websites pasted onto an iPhone app.

    Interesting, assuming you have permission to use the writing you copied. And you might want to include a bibliography or list of sources on your webpage, or title it "2000 Sayings I Found On The Internet."

    The first "fact" about Chinese people knocking the earth out of orbit is completely wrong. Where did you get the information for all your "facts"?

    It ain't the same one. It's a illegal ripoff which will soon be banned by Apple. It's an inferior app anyway.

    what a stupid app. why not just google for 'interesting facts' then without paying for this type of money-making drivel?

    I can make up my own "facts" in my head.

    Seems like non of these facts are verifiable. Type of things I would think of as a little kid like "what if..."

    I just got an iPod touch and was looking at this app last night. Seems pretty poor that two of the facts used as example screenshots are completely bogus - the China/Earth orbit one, and the "All continents are wider at the north".

    Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the continent of Australia:

    Bought this. It lost me at the fifth fact. Bad, bad sourcing.

    So have you taken out all the duff and made-up facts, or just added thousands of new duff and made-up facts?
