“We continuously update the data to include the most captivating bits of historical trivia we can find,” says Manuel Zamora, the founder of Downshift LLC. “Our staff works hard to collect the best and most fascinating facts and to keep improving the app’s features, allowing our users to easily search, learn, share, and save their favorite bits of information.”
