Cool Noises, But WAY Too Less Facts!

I'm sorry, but I really expected more. I like how the noises pair up with each fact, and how the "That's weird" things make me laugh, but you get so less facts, and many of them we already know. It took me less than one minute to finish this app, then I had to delete it! Please put in more facts that are free and don't request money. If you will, I would be happy to dive this app a higher rate.😢😢😢

Very Fun App!

We purchased the Mega Pack for a mere $1.99 and it's a lot of fun! (Seriously, most apps have more content for extra money and why not? Human beings actually work to put these together.) In any case, we're just a mom and daughter (8 years old) that really enjoys this app. She loves to rate the various facts with the meter that makes funny noises.

Stop with the money!

You should never make just ONE free pack! This is the most disappointing game I ever got. I personally think the books are way way way better then this app! And we do you have the “adults only” thing, I mean the questions said like the easy ones like one times seven or eight! I really hope you make the people with this app happy and make at least eight free packs, otherwise this app is mostly useless except for the only eight free facts some of us like to have fun. I’m sorry about this rate but this app deserves it.
