Windows Phone App 3: Fact-Of-The-Day


No prizes for guessing what this application does, but I will reveal it just in case: When you start the application, it loads a bunch of trivia/facts from its own database as well as various RSS feeds, then shows them to you randomly.

Here’s the marketplace link:

You just swipe the screen to reveal the next fact, and click the “refresh” button to load a whole new set.

This was a fairly simple application to write, but I did learn to optimize file storage & loading, and a bunch about how [not] to create icons for the app and marketplace.

Even though it’s simple, I find this application pretty fun to use. Great way to kill some time, very passive 🙂

This one doesn’t have a trial mode, so I warn you: Don’t spend the $0.99 unless you like facts!
