Here are just a few of the fun facts this app has in store for you as per its description:

“Did you know a hippo’s lips are about two feet wide? Or that didaskaleinophobia is the fear of going to school? Or that before toothpaste was invented some people cleaned their teeth with charcoal?”

I love that one about hippo lips! 🙂 Now you know why the app is called, “Weird But True”.
