Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.

We’re excited to bring you our biggest update to small talk yet, with several new features and improvements;
BOOKMARK FAVOURITES TO YOUR PROFILE: We’ve given everyone their own profile, meaning you can now bookmark your favourite small talks for later. Handy eh?
LEARN MORE: You can now dive down an informational rabbit hole by following the source link on selected small talks.
SPOKEN WORD OF THE DAY: Ever wanted to hear the word of the day spoken aloud? Well, now you can!
OTHER IMPROVEMENTS: There’s a shiny new animated intro tour, along with a few small UI/UX tweaks for you to discover.
We’re committed to continuously improving small talk - let us know any new features or improvements you’d like to see at email@example.com
Ratings and Reviews
The content quality varies, which is down to personal knowledge and preferences - there’s no doubt about that. I find the app pretty cool. What I’d like to see is some additional resources or if you wish a fact check, something to back the statements up. E.g. today I got this fact ‘A sheep, a duck and a rooster were the first passengers in a hot air balloon.’ I was immediately interested but there was no way to learn more about it other that researching it on my own. Fair enough but I think this app would be way better with ‘read more’ feature for scientific content, historical events and profiles of remarkable people mentioned in the content it shows you.
Another cool thing would be bookmarks. I’d like to save some stuff for future reference without the need to look through the calendar.
Oh and that rant of the other user about inappropriate jokes. How about you leave a choice to the user? Something like a ‘safe mode’ that can be disabled? Of course some of the stuff can be upsetting but let’s not get crazy and give people an option. Policing users who can decide for themselves is a bad practice in my humble opinion.
Not bad at all
Quite an interesting app. Agree with a previous review about having links to fact check. For example, it’s not necessarily true that Charlie Chaplain didn’t win a Charlie Chaplain look a like contest. The reality is that no one actually knows the truth. It was said to have been mentioned by someone at a dinner, but that person is also said to have had a wicked sense of humour.
I’d also like to be able to turn off certain categories. The jokes, I’m not so interested in for example. Yes I can ignore them, but I’d rather they just weren’t shown. Personally.
But overall, quite a good little app.
Most pleasant of all notifications
I can’t wait to get my daily portion of “awesome” and it comes every day at whatever time I set it up. I never remember about it though and when the time comes and I’m buzzed I look at my phone halfheartedly knowing very well that not much good in life ever came by doing so....And then my face is lit by a smile so healthy it almost feels devilish! It’s only half a minute, if even, but it’s such a nice distraction from everything else that it’s almost therapeutic. Easy, simple, light, interesting and funny! Wish I was describing myself there!
Get it, set it and let it gently nudge you with your 5 (actually 6) a day!
Btw, how can I make my iPhone look so cool like it the preview pictures? The white all over is unnervingly appealing!
