Here is the Owl backstory found in the media pages written by Veeral Patel:
I got the idea for Owl while drinking Snapple Lemon Tea.
While most designers/developers relied on coffee to keep them awake, I relied on Snapple. The best part of this experience was reading the fact that came with it. However, most of the time, the fact was either a duplicate or not interesting.
The main goal for Owl is to emulate this experience in a better way. The facts are actually interesting and I promise that you’ll never get any duplicates. Try and make it a habit to learn something new everyday.
Thanks for the advice “V.” The facts provided in his app are actually interesting – things that I didn’t know I didn’t know, and things that I might even discuss at the next party I attend. One fact that I’m interesting in knowing is the ingredients found in baby oil. After all, if olive oil is made of olives, then baby oil must be made out of… (Sorry. Couldn’t resist.).
The facts included in the app are hand-picked from reddit and all credit (or discredit as the case may be) goes to their awesome users.
