Introduction

Animal Facts - Best Daily Amazing & Cool Fun Fact About Animals for Kids Discovery is an iPhone and iPad app that provides interesting facts about animals that you may not have known. It has several different backgrounds, and you can select whether you’d like the facts to appear on a slide show or by swiping them.

Learn About Animals

Animal Facts presents many facts on a daily basis. If you would like to click on it daily, you’ll get a fun fact a day, but if you prefer to just keep on reading facts, you can scroll through them too. The background doesn’t change for each image, and I’d like to see a relevant image for each fact, but that’s not always practical.

The app does however provide 20 background options. If you choose to purchase the full version, then you can put the background on a rotation basis every few seconds, to every minute. You can also set the transition if you prefer a fade or none at all.

Share Your New Knowledge

You can also set notifications to alert you to the new fact of the day or share your new knowledge from Animal Facts. You can share with a link to Facebook, Twitter, or by text message. You can also copy, email, post to Tumblr, or LinkedIn. If you find a really interesting fact you can create a list of favorites for easy reference later.

I do want to note that the usual share icon, the square with an arrow pointing up, is not the share feature for this app. It is instead the settings menu.

Final Thoughts

Animal Facts - Best Daily Amazing & Cool Fun Fact About Animals for Kids Discovery is an iPhone and iPad app that will provide lots of great facts to keep your child learning and engaged. My son is a factoid, and really loved reading the facts and sharing them with his sister, father, and myself. He even called his uncle to share some facts about dogs. Additionally, my daughter is interested in animals and is considering becoming a veterinarian down the road. My son read some facts to her, and the two of them were actually getting along! At 12 and six they mostly just fight, but it’s nice when common ground can be found in a book of facts, and the iPad is the next generation of books.
