In General, Great 4/5
Can we please just quit with the “You gained x CQ” banner? It makes it annoying to try to close whatever you’re in when you’re done with it. Or just move it over past the “back” button? Thanks!
I swear to goodness 1/5
This could be a poster child of r/assholedesign. They offer you all the knowledge you could ever want!***
***but only if you pay them, after signing up with an email and giving out personal info.
Learn of the world 5/5
By Cedar wind
Like most of us I let life get in the way of learning. This so gets my mind awake and functioning back at the curious state that was mine when so much younger. The desire for knowledge and input is back. I now look at my days ready to see, learn and understand what and why things are around me and not just cruising the day away with a zombie brain.
Lots of subjects 5/5
By SLP in az
I purchased that app a few days ago and from my point of view, curious seems to have a whole lot of topics in the subjects of my interest. Learning videos are entertaining and to the point.
Not expensive for an encyclopedia, all things considered.
This is not free 1/5
I downloaded this app from a link that showed no charge. You get 7 days to try it out, thereafter it’s $30 usd a month, you have to agree to the payment before you can try it out. I didn’t go past that point.
Might be good, but I’ll never find out 1/5
By Blue duck 9
I feel like my time’s been wasted. You can’t try out the app until you start a subscription. You don’t find out until you’re set it all up. Poor show.
NOT FREE 1/5
They make you spend 10-15 minutes signing up and you give them all your information; then, they tell you there’s a 7 day trial, after which you have to pay an expensive subscription free. Tons of paid reviews on here, in truth the app is bulls**t.
I already feel smarter! 5/5
Stimulating, interesting, diverse and challenging, this app is already retraining me to be more curious. As a fifty-something, this app is allowing me to remain mentally nimble and is introducing more thought paths to my everyday.
College is Worth More. 1/5
I thought this application would be interesting to check out and learn a few Small Time Tactics here and there but as I read some of the Displayed Reviews as your filling out your CQ, I realized that a few of these idolized people are saying college isn't worth the money so on and so forth.. Thats not true. You get a Diploma from College, NOT from Curious.com - and After that realization, they want me to pay to learn these small time things.
1 Star ⭐️ for Stupid Idolizations.

Navigation buttons not working 4/5
The back button and arrow buttons for curios are not working on both my phone and iPad.
Otherwise love it. Thank you.
New update stinks 1/5
With this new update, it’s not possible to go back to the main menu once inside a game like KenKen or crossword. Have to exit out of the app and start over every time.
Don’t give them your email, it’s not worth the short trial they give you
Please fix latest update! 3/5
After a game, I can’t go back to the main screen (upper left arrow). I have to restart the app. In the App Store, “help” or “app support” just opens the app. iPhone 7 with latest iOS.
Otherwise, I love this app! I can play a few games & learn some trivia, but not get sucked into spending too much time doing it.
Avoid!!! Ripoff waiting to happen. 1/5
The app itself is fair, but I want you to know now that by downloading a “trial” you are going to end up losing $29.99 -their yearly subscription cost before you even blink. If you are like most people “trying” an app you don’t spend hours a day with it. In my case I downloaded it and then took a trip, by time I got back in country and had any time to look at it further I had already been charged FOR A YEAR! Not a week, not a month - A YEAR. I wish Apple would put an end to predatory companies like this in the App Store. But hey - I had 7 days to read the fine print so my bad... just hope this heads up saves some of the rest of you.
More of this in our world, please! 5/5
The internet is a fantastic resource, but we can often get caught up in the frivolous side of it, neglecting the wealth of information at our fingertips. I'm a naturally curious person, and I'm stoked to take some of this back, furthering accessibility to fascination in my daily life. If this sounds like you too, I promise, you'll love this app! Get it! As a side effect, you're bound to become everyone's favorite trivia buddy!
Great Brain Training 5/5
By Stoked Georgie
This app is a lot of fun. I’m on it most days and almost always do the daily crossword. There are a plethora of interesting tips, tricks, factoids and tidbits to choose from everyday.
You do NOT have to pay to use this great app! 5/5
This is a great, interesting app with just the free content-- I play everyday!
Haha Nope 1/5
Waste of time. If you're going to make me pay 30$, then why don't you tell me before I spend half an hour doing a quiz.
Love this app. It's become part of my evening routine.
DON’T DOWNLOAD 1/5
Save yourself the trouble of having to email and call to cancel your subscription! It starts off with asking for your name, email, and information about yourself to gather data and then oh so conveniently tells you that you need to basically pay for further service after a temporary and brief 7 day trial. It is completely deceiving! Please believe the other reviews when they say you have to agree to pay in order to use the app at a RIDICULOUS monthly or yearly subscription!!!
USE A UNIQUE EMAIL! 1/5
By Pat Ricochet
You have to sign up for an annual subscription of $30/year, with 7 days to cancel, to even try the app.
But -first-, before telling you that, it slowly asks you a series of questions to see what subjects to ask you about.
And before -that- you need an email address.
So, even if you opt out at the last moment (since you don’t know you’re signing up for that up front, you have to read the reviews), you still freely gave an email address and loads of personal interests, ready to sell to marketers to link with other uses of that email address.
NOT free to play and very deceptive! 1/5
App Store says “In app purchases “ but you have to agree to pay for it after 14 day’s before you can even play. Of course they don’t tell you this until after you give them your email and spend 15 minutes setting it up! Either have a trial version or make this a paid app. Don’t try to trick us and waste our time! No class.
Rating Curious 5/5
This is a great app! You can choose from many interesting articles and learn many new topics.
You can even do puzzles.
I highly recommend it.
Love love love this app! 5/5
I do. I really do. So much information and such a HUGE variety! Is great to learn something new and get a new perspective everyday!
This app is dedicated to you and your interests in learning. You choose your areas of learning and jump right in. You go at your own pace. It is an exhilarating and fun experience.
(Unnecessary) Necessary payment 1/5
Don't get this app, unless you want to pay for it.... AFTER IT SETS YOU UP! It gets you ready to go and does surveys, and then it tells you to pay.
Too many videos 3/5
If I wanted to watch videos I can do it on YouTube for free... Not enough useful information. Lots of tidbits and facts. Similar to reading the news online.
A fun app 5/5
This app is so much fun. It covers topics I would never hear about on the news or mainstream media. I love getting to pick my interests and expand my knowledge of the world around me. I'm finally learning two languages. The news topics are interesting and current. Thanks Curious!
Once you download the app and register to use, they charge $29 a month for a year. You have to go through several steps to delete the charges!
Worth your time! 5/5
By Whomever it may concern
This is for people who seek self-development and want to be better than they were yesterday.
This is a trap!! 1/5
Free 7 day trial, then you automatically subscribe for a year. Only there’s no way to cancel before you’ve been charged. You can’t “manage subscription“ for a subscription that doesn’t exist yet. The curious website sends you in circles. By the way, the annual cost listed on their website is $69.99!! I’m hoping Apple support can help me get out of this mess before my free 7 days is up.
IT COSTS MONEY 1/5
By Apple is to picky with names
This app tricks you, it lets you get all set up and then it tells you that you have a 7 day free trial and then it costs at least $20 a month to use the app.
30$ is too much
Something new every day 5/5
By m. arbelo
I look forward to learning something new every day. Even though I'm tired when I come home from work, reading my Curio for the day lifts my mood and helps me forget about the day. Love!
LOVE CURIOUS!!! 5/5
This app is absolutely wonderful!!! Not only is it the first one I've ever paid for, but this is also the first review I've left about anything. Ever. That should should That should tell you what a fangirl I have become in a little over a week. Do yourself a favor and get download Curious and start using it NOW!!!
Total rip off!!! 1/5
Very shady with the free sign up and then they automatically charge you for a full year. Super shady!!!! Stay away!
This is a great app if you want to increase your overall knowledge in specific subjects. I've learned so much and been able to apply this knowledge on regular basis. 10/10 would recommend!
Variety, fun, interesting 5/5
I have truly enjoyed everything about this app. The games are challenging enough to keep me interested while not stumping me so often enough to take too long. The different these and interests are incredible. From job interview and relationship topics to art history and paint methods, the range of topics hits on each side of the brain.
Great app! 4/5
It gives me something new to think about every day.
Not a Free App 1/5
By Naysha Faulks
Misleading and only allows a 7 day free trail. But you must cancel the subscription on your own or it will continue to charge you.
That Sucked 1/5
By Endergirl Darling
Ok So I Was Really Excited About Learning Ne Things And It Told Me I Had To Do The Recommendations And I Did Then I Did The Recommendations For Like An HOUR Then It Said That I Had A 7 Day Trial I Then Looked At The Price Thinking It May Have Been Like 0.99 Cents Or Something (Which I Still Would Not Pay Because I Do Free Or A Really Good Game Like Minecraft) I Then Saw The Price And It Said I Had To Pay 29.99 DOLLARS So Basically I Was Going To Have To PAY 29.99 TO USE THE APP!!!!! Please Just Make It Free With Ads But, Not Too Many Ads
By dizz e
Giving it one star because you have to pony up money or credit info just to try. You guys really need a sample platform. Would be willing to pay that but not without preview
Great app 5/5
I learned so much! Awesome!
By kelsie mejia
I didn't know you had to pay for the app until after I had gave my info out plus they only give a five day trial I like the idea but didn't try the game or app whatever you want to call it
Educational and Informative 5/5
The daily blogs keeps me up on what is going on in the world. They are also educational and informative. There are many ways for exploring various subjects and skills .
Great way to learn!! 5/5
Great app 5/5
After reading other reviews, it is evident that one either loves or hates this app. As for me, I love it. I don' have a lot of time during my day to spend cruising YouTube. With this app, the thing's I am interested in are right at my fingertips when I open the app.
One reviewer complained that you have to choose things from areas you are not the least bit interested in; that is true. However, engaging in those little "curios" helps make you a more well-rounded person, so that you capable of participating in conversations in an intelligent manner.
The whole idea of this app is to help you learn more about the things you are interested in and expose you to things you don't know. If you don't want to pay for that, fine; go surf YouTube. As I said, I don't have the time for that. I gladly paid the price (and you get a price break if you subscribe for a year) for the convenience and exposure to things I didn't realize I was interested in.
If you don't want to subscribe, don't; but don't base your rating on the price.
It makes you take about 15 minutes worth of questions only to tell you you have to pay before you can see what the apps about
TOO MUCH MONEY 1/5
Take the Quiz. Super excited to play. And I have to pay $39.99! WHAT KIND OF INTRO IS THAT. DELETED IMMEDIATELY. No thank you. I can't afford a stupid app to teach me Spanish or video games. We have YouTube. Useless app.
