As a teacher, I like the idea of random fun facts, but the app is only entertaining for about 10 minutes. Middle school students read a couple and then get bored and want a different app. Might be neat for younger kids or if used in a specific activity. In the geography classroom, though, it's just not relevant or entertaining enough.

the idea for this app is great, however, there were not many facts. The layout and colors are kid-friendly and the apps were very weird and interesting. I hope they continue to add more interesting facts!
