The Weird but True iOS app is a fully interactive random fact generator inspired by the popular book series of the same name. With a quick shake, or a simple swipe, you will be entertained and educated at the same time as some of the strangest truths ever to be told. Did you know:
- New Zealand has more sheep… than people. (Baaa!)
- Parachutes were invented before airplanes (Look out below!)
- Honeybees can be trained to detect bombs (Bzzzzz….. BOOM!)
- A sneeze travels 100 mph (Bless you!)
- Some honeybee queens… quack (Duck! It’s a bee!)
We can’t make this stuff up! Sometimes the old saying is true… the truth is much stranger than fiction.
Weird but True can be downloaded from iTunes App Stores around the world including from the top of Mt. Everest… where you can get rather clear cell phone reception. That’s Weird!
