  • Collects data from your kids!!

    By ferbury
    According to Wall Street Journal, this app is sending information such as your child’s age and name to Facebook, and does not have a better explanation for this other than “it wasn’t by design”. Please be careful and make sure to research the apps you let your children use before you download them. Many apps nowadays don’t disclose full privacy information or let you opt out of sharing your child’s data. Not only is collecting children’s data without consent morally wrong, it is also prohibited by Apple and Facebook standards.

    So much fun I love it so much this is for kids. I hope you like it.

    This App would be awesome but seems to have issues. Even though I got the subscription the content remained locked for most of the day, even though it said my subscription was active. At some random point it finally opened up, what changed I’ll never know. Now for 2 days it opens and works, but there is no sound. It’s not my tablet because we can hear every other App and sound, but this one is just silent no matter what I try. And the sound REALLY matters for almost everything, especially since my 3 year old doesn’t read yet. No sound makes it basically unplayable. Like I said, the content would be awesome and when it did work for a brief amount of time he loved it. But I’m frustrated at the wasted hours I’ve spent trying to get this thing to work correctly. PS...the iPad is brand new and in perfect working order. Hope someone can help!!
  • Customer support is the worst

    We have subscribed for years and LOVE this app but recently the sound has been out (like almost a month). I’ve updated, rebooted the phone, closed out of the app, etc. not sure what to do. Please help.
  • Great app!

  • Parents Beware

    By JenEliz
    This app is full of crafting DIY videos that will make your child want to make EVERY THING. The will spend hours watching videos and then you will have to clean up a glitter-apocalypse because your obstinate child refused to accept “no” and tried to make her own snow globe. Just say no to this app for your own sanity!
  • The best

    We’ve been subscribers for over two years. This is my kids’ (2 and 4) absolute favorite app, and mine too. The content is fun and educational while really encouraging kids to explore. We have done tons of the projects and activities from within the app’s contents. I’m an educator, so I’m also very picky about apps and educational content—this one is just perfect in the way it gives kids freedom to explore and encourages curiosity. I can’t say enough great things about Curious World—we all adore it in my house!

    We got a free trial on 2017. We purchased the year-long membership before our 9-week family trip. It was amazing! We renewed the membership without a doubt. Our son is homeschooled and he uses the app in his free time every day since then. We do yoga together, exercise, experiments, crafts, costumes, etc. He reads books, he paints, watches videos, dances and more. The app is complete, educational and fun. He is 6 years old, he is in first grade, he is advanced in all the subjects, he reads fluently, he loves science, he does math very well. This app is a complement for his daily lessons.
  • The Best App out there for young children!

    By Mom, Violet & Cooper
    As an early childhood educator, reading specialist, and mom, I have found Curious World to be the best app out their for young children and worth every penny! It will delight your child in so many ways as they grow academically as well as emotionally! There is so much to explore...beloved Curious George books (and many others), social stories, games, videos, arts and crafts, science, math concepts, career paths, and more. A great investment for your child... and teachers, for your students. You won’t be disappointed! My children never are!
  • Fun and curios kids recommend

    By Lolcattymom
    This game has so many fun and learning activity’s that my child stays on this app for at least an hour.I recommend this to kids that have an overactive imagination or for the curios.
  • Hello very good game

    By Kingpotato987
    Recently I have purchased this application for my three children. They are enormous fans of the Curious George and the titular Yellow man. They had many chuckles whilst indulging themselves in this lovely application. However my “wife” Suzy has recently become tenacious. She decided to enact a divorce on me AND SHE TOOK TGE KIDS. I was rather perturbed by this revelation but the funny man and ape always brig a grin to me when I’m downing that Russian whisky. 10/10

    This app makes it almost impossible to cancel subscription.Ive been attempting to cancel my subscription for over a month to no avail.Not to mention there are a lot of free apps that are available that are more fun for your little ones.
  • Really Insulted

    By Young Newbie Skeptic
    You have tons of Christmas stuff. You have like three Hanukkah books, and I don’t know where the Puppy’s First Hanukah came from, but the menorah has the wrong number of candles. Really insensitive and offensive. You guys keep disappointing...

    I have been changed for this app several times per months and the app has been locked; my daughter wasn't able to use it anyway. Not sure why this is happening.

    It was our favorite app for kids, until we updated it two days ago and we can t open it since then. Nothing shows up in the logging page and we are really disappointed.
  • I feel cheated and my children’s education abused

    By Chaplin Arthur
    The totality of this whole experience of purchasing and using this application began very pleasurable educational and enlightening as a parent for my child however recently I’ve noticed over the past 5 to 6 months I have not been able to login and it shows me clearly in my account settings that I am paid up until March 12 of 2019 however it is trying to make me take a temporary subscription ends in a $64 a fee however the subscription that I have now is only $29 is the app developer doing this because they are going up on the price of the app so they are punishing their long-term customers without any prior knowledge they are just doing this and then you have to re-subscribe even know your subscription is not over there capitalize into making more money which is defrauding the public and consumers

    I tried to reset my password twice and it still won’t let me login to the app. Password works fine for their website, but the app says it’s incorrect. Contacted support but got no response.
  • Fun and educational for kids!

    I downloaded this app while babysitting my nephews who are two and five years old. They both loved it. It kept them both occupied and engaged for a good portion of the evening. The games seem fun and educational as do the videos. Definitely a keeper!
  • Fun, but frustrating

    By Thomp-son
    So much great content! But games often take a very long time to load, and the app crashes frequently.
  • Great little app for the kids

    By studiomassiv
    I’m glad we gave this app a try. Obviously, we were intrigued first by Curious George’s character but the kids have enjoyed the games and videos. It’s a much better alternative to the kids watching other kids dress up and play on YouTube Kids. 🙄 We’re over that!
  • What great fun!

    By Stevepace93
    My kids love this app! The games are perfect for keeping them busy during long car rides. I would highly recommend this to other parents!
  • Started out great but then failed to login every time.

    By Multichannel print subscriber
    This app started off great! It followed my child’s development, gave some great options for edu games. Then one day, maybe after an update, I couldn’t log in. I emailed the customer support and the claimed they reset my password. Still didn’t work. I sent multiple emails with screen shots and they were never able to fix my problem. I finally gave up but essentially 6 months of my subscription went to waste as I couldn’t sign in. I am remembering it now because iTunes is prompting me to renew my subscription. I believe I should get a refund for 6 months the subscription didn’t work.
  • Really good learning quality while having fun

    By pilgrims-pass
    I put this app to my niece’s tablet a few months ago. I recently went to visit her and saw how immersed she was in this. She really likes the videos and games, and her mom likes to go through the books with her. She showed me a cool game about matching faces - which was fun even for me, seems like a good quality game. I downloaded for myself and have got a bit hooked on some of the games in the app and enjoy the videos too. Well-made and unique learning experience - I would say a must-have for kids.

  • Scam

    By mamabearwithme
    When the app worked, my kids and I loved it. But like another reviewer explained, many features stop working and/or say they are for subscribers only and lock me out of accessing them — even though I am a subscriber. Going around and around to try to fix the issue is maddening and there is no way to get support. I bet I am still paying for this app that my kids can’t even use.
  • Crashes constantly

    1
    By Barbie_Doll XD
    I subscribe yearly to Curious. I saw it as an investment in my child’s education. I didn’t see new activities being added over the last year. Since switching over to a new company the application is constantly crashing more and more with every update. I need some improvement or want my money back. Those funds can go to a productive app company.
  • Can’t access subscription

    By nhj070913
    My kid loves this game so I payed for the subscription. It now refuses to let me sign in so I can’t access any of the paid material. Disappointed. **** UPDATE **** emailed developer and they responded the next day and fixed my account. Really fast response and they totally took care of the issue. Changed review to 5 stars. This app really is great!
  • Doesn’t work 😡

    By Not smurfin happy
    I am unable to sign in. I am a subscriber and it is frustrating that the app doesn’t work. At first some of the things were locked. It wouldn’t give me the option to enter my password. I deleted the app and reinstalled it thinking that would work. It’s even worse now. Can’t access any of the games and still won’t let me sign in. I would like a refund for the time I am unable to use the app. It’s not like it’s a one time fee. It’s monthly!
  • Extremely frustrated !!!

    By JarVic17
    Very frustrated !!! I've had this app for over 3 years and I just had to update again.... Now, everything is locked and my children cannot play anything at all. So I guess I will be deleting this. So sad because they really did enjoy it. But, now they want you to pay for everything I guess..!!!!

    I guess this app was acquired by another company? Can’t log in and can’t even use free version. So disappointed, my kids loved this app.
  • Can’t access

    By glorsson
    Since the new ownership and “upgrad” I cannot access anything. Customer support has been unhelpful. I’m subscribed and will be asking for a refund if we cannot get access soon!
  • Where is customer support?

    1
    By iamowl
    I have been subscribed to this for a couple years now and today I’m left wondering why this company doesn’t have any resources dedicated to customer retention or support? We can’t access the app at all, but the main issue is the little pop ups saying we can’t aren’t very informative or reassuring for an app with no one to troubleshoot with. When I click “support” from the App Store, it goes to an “oops!” page. They should message everyone with the app to let them know what’s going on, what they’re doing to fix it, and when they expect to resolve the issue, at the very least. Depending on how long or often this occurs, maybe a refund? We loved this app, and this is the first we have experienced an issue, but the lack of resolution or ability to contact is sketchy.
  • Don’t bother with subscription

    1
    By prpltulip
    This game was working until we weren’t able to access content. It stated I required a subscription, which we had & even after reaching for tech support the dialogue ceased after sending a copy of the receipt that they requested. Such a ripoff!!
  • Would be perfect with parental control

    3
    By DZ511
    I like that there is a lot of varied content available (games, books, videos, etc) for my 4 year old and I like the idea that there is a parent section that shows me how much time she’s spending on each activity, but ALL of her time is spent on games. I really wish there was a way to control how much time was spent doing certain things, like Amazon Freetime. For instance, play games AFTER reading books, or limiting the time for games. That would make this app a real winner.

    By JamesKTech
    The other one star reviews on here are correct half the time you can’t download the games or play dumb over any type of data connection. Zero customer support. Tried restoring the app about 10 times and deleting and restoring the app. Worthless piece of junk and the programmers should find new jobs.
  • Disappointed!!!

    Like many other subscribers mentioned, there is a flaw in the app, been a subscriber, and yet it says sign up, my child is unable to use the app. App makes one go in circle and no solution, very frustrating!!!!!!!
  • Terrible app

    Same as all the other bad reviews. My son really liked the app. And now we can't log in. Keeps asking if I am an adult and to put in my age and the only years it show is in the 10,000 BE there is no way to reset the password to log in
  • Not working now that I've paid

    By cstingray76
    We started with with free trial then upgraded to the monthly subscription. My kids love this application and all that it has in it. So we bought the 1 yr subscription and now 6m later the app can not be accessed. My kids can't even open the app on their iPads now. And can't get in touch with anyone to fix this.

    By VallyKurl
    My 2 year old son loves this app and so do I! I was hesitant to sign up for the free trial, just because I figured I could find something else educational for free without the hassle... Nahhh. My son was obsessed with watching those videos of kids opening toys on YouTube, I wasn’t a fan of that. I’m happy I found an alternative that’s teaching him cool stuff as well as keeping him just as engaged as the other option. Games, books, songs, and videos that are all educational! The only reason I have given it 4 stars is because of the offline content. There are only games and books available to download, I wish the videos could be available as well... especially if I’m paying for it. It’s still the bomb though, seriously, b o m b, get it.
