    This app is something else. I’ve leaned how to be a better artist, writer, listener, speaker, etc. it’s like have a fine tuned teacher of everything , and world paper or magazine all wrapped in one. I can’t always do it daily but I look forward to staying in touch with this app a couple times a week. I absolutely love it. Worth every dime I spent to have it.
  • Love to learn

  • No Response Customer Service

    I could not log in with new phone. Contacted repeatedly with no response. Just found out that I am being double billed on 2 different emails & Can cancel one year from Today! I enjoyed the program but am appalled at the total they have billed me FOR ZERO ACCESS!
  • Can’t find customer service contact - THOUGHT THIS WAS FREE

    By Tbgcat
    Can’t find customer service contact - THOUGHT THIS WAS FREE, but now am charged $30 for an app I’ve not used. I don’t even remember using the trial, but maybe I did. I’d like a refund - this seems shady, like a trick, as I never would’ve signed up for something that automatically signed me up after a trial period. I always only select the OPT-IN versions as all others seem like a scam. Including this. Really mad about this.

    I just got this app, and I've already found a few bugs using VoiceOver. I have found at least three problems with the puzzles already (one of them being I'm not getting any feedback at all if I'm getting an answer correct or not), and I had a difficult time when exercises came up in a curio because there was no way for me to navigate to a textbox where I could type my answer. Actually, no textbox showed up at all for me to type an answer. These are some of the more prominent issues with this app. Please fix this so I can continue striving towards a better education. Thank you.
  • Piece of garbage

    By KimmyChonga
    Not Free at all, this app relies on your forgetfulness so that they can charge you $30 for the subscription even after you’ve deleted the app, it’s a scam. And for the developer if their subpar customer service actually replies, I DO NOT CARE ABOUT HOW MANY MORE LIBERTIES I HAVE IN THE APP THAN THE “FREE TRIAL” USERS
  • Cancelled my subscription and you’re still trying to bill me.

    Why is it so hard to cancel when you don’t have the time to view the appt
  • IT’S A TRAP

    By FlauntingSloth
    Don’t download this app, the free trial will automatically turn into a paid one, which you CAN’T CANCEL FOR SOME REASON. It says you can turn off auto renew, but there’s actually no option to do that once you follow the instructions.
  • Charges you even if you’ve uninstalled the app!

    By EnragedClient
    Installed this app about a year ago and uninstalled it because I didn’t want to pay for it! Turns out they’ve been charging me for membership ever since I added my credit card info to the AppStore!! I definitely did not even approve of this!! ):<
  • Meh

    I was so excited when I saw this app and what it offered. I like learning about everything and this app seemed perfect for me. However, I was sorely disappointed to find out I had to pay to get the full benefit of it and even more that the free version offers so little access. I’m still not decided if it’s worth the money to get info that I can easily find myself for free online. The free services should be expanded even if for a limited time so people can get a better feel for how great the app appears to be and actually be convinced to pay for more access, but the very limited info available in free version is just not convincing me to spend my money here. Too bad.

  • Never wanted the app in the first place

    By Big Chappo44
    My girlfriend downloaded the game for the free trial and didn’t quit or tell me about the 70 dollar charge that was on the way. Okay I got screwed and paid the 70. I didn’t log in once to play all year and couldn’t find a way to quit it so now you guys are charging my card another year and I don’t have 70 on the card so I can’t update any apps until this issue is taken care of. I don’t want another year as I didn’t want the first year. You have emailed me for three months to pay or risk chance of losing the service. Please cancel my service
  • Love this app

    Science Friday, TED talks, cross word puzzles and so much more. I use the app daily and put it right up there with my morning latte.

    By Rosieposie5
    Once you subscribe for a year, it automatically renews despite efforts to cancel. Frustrating!!!!
  • Waste of time

    By Supertoadman
    Don’t waste your time. The information in here is nothing more than what you can get from free google searches. Hardly even an interactive app. Unless you consider word search puzzles interactive. Don’t waste your money or your time.

    By the critic that counts
    The only problem with this app is you're only allowed to give it 5 stars. If you love info, self improvement, tutorials, then this app is for you. In addition to the amazing knowledge, it's extremely user friendly and offers intermittent questions on some formats to see if you're comprehending the video. In conclusion to underscore my opening statement, I would give this app 10 stars!
  • I have so many fun facts now!

  • Customer Service is Crap

    By Sarahshmara
    I used this app for a year (forgot to cancel my free trial), and after a year I decided to renew it so I could share it with my dad for Father's Day. My ipad broke shortly thereafter, so I haven't been using it, but my dad has. I just found out that my dad has been using the free version b/c my subscription never renewed, despite having paid for it. Contacted customer service, and they told me I never paid for it, but if I thought I had, I should submit the date I renewed, the name on my credit card, and the last 4 digits of my credit card. I did this, and the next email said that since the charge was made through Apple, I would need to forward a copy of my credit card statement (heck no) or a copy of my email receipt (which I no longer have). Instead, I sent them screenshots of my apple purchases, and a screenshot of the portion of my credit card statement that shows the charge from Apple for that amount on that day. I'm sorry, but if you accept payment through Apple, then figure it out! It shouldn't be my burden to prove to you that I paid for your subscription. Since I sent all the information over yesterday, I have also left a message on Facebook, and I have yet to hear anything via Facebook or email. I would think that a company that charges so much for a subscription would prioritize helping paid customers ASAP. I am now beginning the process of making a complaint with Apple.
  • Love love love this

    This is one of my favorite apps ever. I try to use it every day and always learn something interesting and most often fascinating. I end up discovering and sharing something from it with my family and friends almost every time I open it. Enlightens me and improves my life

    I now cannot stop a audio report and go forward without listening to the whole thing again for the points. It reports that I have only listened to a percentage. I use an iPhone 6. I almost did not resubscribe recently because there was a picture of a cooling tower that was labeled a smokestack with no retraction. I wish there was an oops page for updated material.

    By shanejb
    I think it’s ridiculous that you have to subscribe (pay) to get to really use what this app has to offer, but other than that it’s a really cool app.
  • Costs money

    By DB4KB
    Should tell you upfront that it costs money. Instead, you answer lots of questions and then are informed it’s $30.
  • Perfect way to avoid politics!

    I end my day with challenges, learning minutes, wonderful snippets of knowledge. Never stop learning, never stop being curious!!
  • Great idea - Garbage UI and performance

    3
    By 404.tonynotfound
    Seems like the developers tried too hard to include everything in their MVP and released this while it didn't function smoothly. Hopefully future releases will look and performance better. For now the amount of content is nice but you can't enjoy using the app regardless.

    The best feature of this app is that I can elect what subject and issues I want to look up. Great variety and quick lessons.

  • Horrible

    By Yourminecrafter
    This app is absolutely one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had with an IOS app. The app itself is sub par at best I’ve had a better experience with other apps that can triple the benefits that this app can deliver. Secondly the consumer support is absolutely terrible I’ve sent many emails to attempt and revoke a payment that they charged me for a “FREE TRIAL” they did not send an email asking if I wanted to continue but instead charged me 30$, and for that reason I am no longer able to download new apps, I can no longer update apps, and lastly I can no longer purchase songs or re-download any deleted content. Again do no download this app, there are better options out there.
  • Definitely worth it

    I deleted this app off my phone and was charged anyway. I tried to get my money back but Apple says it needs to “verify” my account and I have to wait 20 hours for them to do their job! I’d get fired if I pulled that crap at my job! Meanwhile my money is in limbo for an app I no longer have or want...

    After first using the app I immediately bought the year long subscription - which is really affordable considering how much content it includes. The content is curated so I’m not aimlessly wandering the internet. I am immensely grateful for Curious because it helps me start the day with some mental exercises and some interesting, inspired stories. I also enjoy the wide selection of topics. Thank you!!!

  • Great daily learning exercise

    By Featherheartgoose
    I’ve been using the free version for over a year. The articles are great and I really enjoy the KENKEN puzzles. Really keeps you curious to keep coming back daily, even if it’s for only 10-15 minutes. My only issue is the text on the articles. Curious uses a black background with white text, which is very uncomfortable on my eyes, and if I see it’s a longer article I’ll just pass because of that. Not sure if anybody else finds the white text on black background to be an issue.
  • Never stop learning!

    By MombatMouse
    I found Curious by mistake, but it is now a regular part of my day. What first got my attention was the chance to learn American Sign Language. I have always wanted to, but have been unable to fit formal classes into my schedule. Curious offers a chance to learn on my own time, and a year’s subscription for the whole site is much less than one course at a college! Now, I am always intrigued by the “curios” offered daily. And I *never* miss the Word of the Day from Merriam-Webster!
  • Learn a bit in a short time!

    By Stryke Force 1
    When you have a few minutes to spend, this is a great way to spend them! You can learn a quick tidbit about one of your interests, easily digest it, and go on with your day. Or get more in-depth if you want and have the time. I highly recommend!
  • Love the variety. Forces me to think.

    I really love this app! In the short time I’ve had it I feel like I have grown so much! My curiosity is back and I’m really learning again. As a 40 year old SAHM Mom (with a PT business), I’ve tried many apps to give me the intellectual simulation that I really miss from my former career, but I’ve found most of them lead back to politics/negativity/pop culture that is making my IQ decrease by the second. Haha It is great to see and be exposed to so many topics of interest in short amounts of time because that is all you have to spare when small kids are involved.
  • Scams you into paying

    1
    By CuriousComIsAscam
    I would give 0 if I could. Deleted the app after 1 day of the “trial period” bc it wasn’t for me and they still charged my account for the entire year. And you know you’ll never get that money back. Don’t try it out, it’s a scam.
