    I created and developed my first iPhone App called “Today I Learned“. It's free, get it here

    Granted it’s not video game based, but there are tons of video game “fun facts” in the app.

    Here is my iTunes description:

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KE_up6cWDgk[/youtube]

    I’m posted it here for two reasons. First of all I’m proud of my little App and that Apple approved it, I put a lot of work into learning some basic Object-C and compiling all the content. I’m not an iPhone developer, I got to the third chapter of a “Learn to…” book and I thought of the idea. So, instead of moving on to Chapter 4 in the book I took what I learned and put my efforts into making this app and getting it into the iTunes App store. Secondly, I’d LOVE to have you guys contribute to the App! The App (as it stands now) pulls it’s content from Reddit.com (manually…). I’d like to expand it a bit more for version 1.1 to include Fun Facts and things you have just recently learned in the gaming world.

    PM with any interesting Video gaming "fun facts" and I'll be sure to include it (and credit you) in the next release.

    It's FREE:

    Hey dude, nice job! I know the satisfaction of finishing the first app! Keep on learning, and you can make a pretty penny from software sales!

    Nice app. Pity I have a Galaxy S instead of an iPhone.

    S'alright, though some facts I did already know and there are maybe some that don't quite fit in. [​IMG]
    Good so far though. Could do with a "back" option. [​IMG]

    (Also, you spelt credits with two Ds.)

    The Beatles fact is probably wrong as they are English and a British penny doesn't equal the same as the American one. I could be wrong though and the guy used the correct exchange rate etc but I doubt it.

    I'm being a little picky but it's "facts" after all [​IMG]

    Good work though.

    Also it's about a street not a penny [​IMG]

    Yeah, I have a lot of editing to do with the new ones I add.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Looks great so far!

    I have some suggestions, though.

    It would be better if you removed the author's credit (e.g, "By: kibitzor") and left it for a specific credits page or add the ability to make a double tap reveal the person where you got the fun fact from. It would look much better aesthetic wise.

    Also, I would prefer if you correct the grammar with a number of the fun facts. It's quite irritating. [​IMG]

    Otherwise, this is a lovely app. Keep up the good work!
