Ratings and Reviews
I find myself constantly fact checking all media/papers/net/etc
This app simply conveys facts from best available sources & usually the facts are surprising, counterintuitive but interesting.
I was first interested in the nature of our federal debt & was taken to a very thorough analysis.
This is best for 1. entertainment while waiting in line, etc or for 2. excruciating detail if you let the app take you to the source material.
I enjoy & trust it for content.
Just what the world needs
Finally, an information source that allows you to trace the accuracy yourself - all the way to the scientific sources. I would love it even more if there was a keyword search and find. Thank you Just Facts.
Good approach to focus on the facts
I think is pretty hard to strip out bias when offering information. I think this app does a pretty good job at that. Thanks!
