  • Great app...what happened to KENKEN?

    By mr magoo 81360
    This is good app. My only complaint is sometimes the full lineup of puzzles is missing. Today, both KENKEN puzzles were missing. I start every day with a cup of coffee and the puzzles Unilingo is my favorite followed by 6x6 KENKEN and then the crossword which I can usually knock out in 10-15 minutes. Keep the puzzle lineup consistent please.
  • Accidentally paid for a year, and still can't use the service.

    By jakobthepanda
    I accidentally paid for a year. I caught it one day late and it charged me. I got a new phone and now it won't restore the purchase to my new phone. It's a poorly designed app. There are countless I would pay for before curious. Do NOT PAY FOR THIS.
  • Be curious!

    By Badmamabunny
    Love this app, learn something new everyday. 👍
  • Love to learn.... learn to love.

    By aChildofChaos
    To not learn is to not really live... don’t go through life without doing it... it’s boring 😂
  • Charged unknowingly

    By 715monica
    Be aware! I was charged on October 20 2018 without me even knowing for a whole year, when I realized it I tried using the app since the subscription ended in 5 months. It wouldn’t let me and wanted to charge me again the $39.99.
  • Merges 20 other wellness/fun apps

    By Hergolden
    Seriously cool. No issues and smartly entices one to consume more healthy content vs mindless rubbish. People who are sick of the news about corruption and gross human behavior should definitely shift to this. Puzzles, real courses with so many topics I couldn’t believe, poetry, news, inspiring stories, humor, glad the founders were able to make this app.
  • Love this app!

    By Huni269
    I start my morning with a puzzle and the other challenges. This app keeps my mind exercised and I gain a lot of knowledge about what has been, what is and what will be going on in the world. I highly recommend it!
  • Fun app...

    By Ttttthhheee bestttt
    This is a great and fun app to use in your free time!
  • Free and works just fine

    By PapiKink
    I have had the free version for almost a year and it works fine. Personalized and interest EVERY TIME I use it.
  • Curious

    By Jim Weisenberger
    My all time favorite website. This was my first purchase and I have never regretted it !
  • Sorry to give this one measly star, but.

    By ghastlypeas
    I got charged for this app and I don’t recall ever signing up for it. I’m in the process of trying to get my money back. I’m sure it’s great and useful but I definitely didn’t authorize for a subscription with them so be mindful if you have this downloaded.
  • Get me outta’ here!

    By tezra2
    Do not get this. It charges your account and it’s forever. I don’t even want to try anymore apps—this is scary! Stared only one to post a review.
  • Fantastic app, great value and opportunity

    By Breathe27
    I love this app. I learn a variety of new things daily. Amazing resources. Wonderful commentary from the editors of the daily curios. Works the mind from so manny angles. My best purchase this year, including compared with material items.
  • Language Bite Mandarin

    By Rliatheshrink
    I love love love this app! Every night right before I fall asleep I do a few languages bite mandarin lessons and I can say that I am almost fluent in causal conversations in mandarin. I’ve only been using the app for about 2weeks!
  • What happened?.

    By razzwag
    I have used this app every day and always enjoy the daily crossword puzzle.However lately I have been unable to see my mistakes,which were always shown in red.This has been really frustrating for me.What happened?
  • Learn unexpected and interesting facts

    By NenaMH
    Whether you use The free app or subscribe you’ll get daily tidbits of interesting information. With subscription there is a wide range of information. I subscribe now. For years I use the free app and enjoyed it immensely.
  • Money trap

    By Henno8
    Do not, do not download this app. I got charged for a year with in days trying app out. On top of it, it is my fault according to Apple.
  • Coffee and Curious

    By jmdmld
    The Curious app is as essential to my good mornings as a fresh cup of coffee
  • Canceling .....

    By Condy4u
    This is a nightmare. It’s listed as purchased, try to edit in settings, however, cancel is not a choice
  • Wonderful Source of information

    So far I like this app. I have used it every day for a week and I am enjoying it. It is quite interesting. KG
  • Great way to start you day...

    By Rider
    I do the crossword and a listen every morning...gets your mind working...👍👍😊
  • I’ve learned so much.... Awesome awesome app.

    By Kelly Trammell
    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

    By Cracramo
    I’ve learned so much crazy interesting things from this great site.The games are a wonderful bonus!
  • No Response Customer Service

    By iParentCoach
    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.
  • Accesibility issues on Ios 12

    By starlightpiano2013
    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.

    By E'maya
    Why is it so hard to cancel when you don’t have the time to view the appt

    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

    By Really for nothing
    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.
  • Curious

    I love this app. Give it a try
  • 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

    By mz pi
    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.
  • Beware

    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.
  • Panacea

    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!

    By LeluuuuuLiz77
    This is a great way to take a mental break throughout the work week! Highly recommended
  • Love this app!

    By PetalPink
    Listening to the story of Denise Scott Brown and and Robert Venturi, the authors of “Lessons from Las Vegas” was a joy.
  • 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

    By Mommy peeps
    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
  • Update made it worse not better

    By L•{{~~~
    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.
  • Fabulous!

    By Vicki's villa
    I do the crossword and up and down words ever morning with my coffee. I love it!
  • Broad range of topics.

    By GPHollywood
    Great addition to my morning jog!
  • #curiousapp

    By CourtLorraine
    Very fun! Easy to navigate, & understand. I read 'curios' while I'm laying n bed, & listen 2 them while I do routine things(making coffee, walking the dog, etc.). Perfect 4 any1 who has found themselves n a learning rut! #learnsomethingneweveryday Definitely recommend Curious!! 👍👍
  • Fin de suscripción

    By Dr.W.Peleit
    Eliminé La Suscripción. No Envíen Ninguna Carta Ni Publicaciones Suyas Hasta Nueva Orden. Cúmplase.
  • Pretty cool

    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!

    By AKMooma
    I end my day with challenges, learning minutes, wonderful snippets of knowledge. Never stop learning, never stop being curious!!
