Stay on Your Trivia Toes with What About Today

Whether its at a party, a picnic, or a get together, trivia is always quite fun. Be it on the bottom of a bottle cap, on the wrapping of sweets or on actual trivia cards, these little nuggets of information more often than not, trigger a satisfying little ‘oh…cool!’ moment every time you read one. Well, now you can enjoy this moment everyday conveniently with the app What About Today? on your Android device.

What About Today? is a fun little app developed by XDA Forum Member darkstay, and it serves up a fresh dose of trivialities for your and your company’s entertainment. Every day, you can read up on a famous quote, find out a cool little fact, kick start your mind with a fun riddle, discover a quick historical fact, get a brief history of the day, and more. The user interface is very simple, consisting of vertically scrolling list of facts and trivia under the present date, and horizontally sliding screens for content of preceding and succeeding days for those who would like to explore a bit more. All the content are also stored on your phone, so you can access the app anytime and anywhere.

I guess the saying ‘You learn something new everyday’ may actually be true, especially with an app like this. You may never know when you might need to know that snails can sleep for up to 3 years or that 70% of the human brain consists of water. The application is available for anyone using Android versions 2.2 or newer, and can be downloaded for free from the Play store. So make sure to check out the original thread for more information if you’re interested.

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team.
