Really Great App

I really love this app.... But there is a problem with the app.... whenever I want to stop reading the facts and I get out of the app, if I want to get back into the app the facts start all over again... Please update the app to have a bookmark thing or a space were you can see what your favourite facts are..... Other then that I really enjoy reading the cool facts and hope there is many more to come..... I would give this app 5 stars if it saved the fact I was up to so when I get back into the app I can read on ahead...... I really don't wont to read the facts twice....

Yes, I'm a know it all...

Great, mostly. There are some facts that need better wording to actually be correct, and some weren't correct at all. I suggest you review some of them.
For example, humans have more than 5 senses, there are just 5 main ones that we use the most.
Secondly, we can actually move while we dream. We are only paralysed in REM sleep, which is when most of our dreaming takes place, but we do dream in Non-REM sleep, when we can move.
If you are to provide a fact-app, they should at least be accurate.
