Got tricked into subscribing to have stories from the same three publications read to me over and over. Complete waste of money. I’m stuck with it for a year because I forgot to cancel. Don’t take the bait.
Limited sources 2/5
No NYT... ? Okay, definitely no subscription.
Snooze “news” 2/5
This app is NOT a newsfeed, as news is delivered timely. Content is not added frequently enough to use as a go-to source for news. I also agree with several users who found the narrators to be flat.
Won’t let me sign in with accurate Google account 1/5
Won’t let me sign in with accurate Google account; just says “Something went wrong”!

Just what I have been waiting for 5/5
By Amelie De Vis
I am a long-time lover of audio books and podcasts and I have long thought it would be wonderful if there were an app that would do for magazine articles what Audible does for books. And now I have it! I am still learning how to use the app most efficiently but I love what it offers. I recommend it to all my friends.

Content Quality 5/5
By Isabelle Scerri
You get to hear non hysterical commentators delivering relevant and cogent news reports in a timely manner. No advertising about catheters, or diet foods from a cinched up actress.

I’m using it every day 5/5

really love it. It’s like I finally started to read much more without spending additional time. Just listening to it while walking or driving. Good selection of articles, so pleasant voices and the app is made really well. Thank you guys!!!
Watch app issues 2/5
The watch app will not install.
Just okay 3/5
I love the idea but it all feels so underwhelming. The news stories lack branding or any sort of production. It makes it feel hollow and lifeless. I wish there was more effort put into the recordings, especially with a subscription. I’ll stick with NPR instead for free.
Apple Watch 4 3/5
I downloaded the app but it does not appear on my Apple Watch!
Good idea, but.. 3/5
By Amherst, Ma
don’t expect today’s headlines
Too British 3/5
I wanted to love it; it’s a great idea, but for the time being, it seems the content skews quite British. So it’s cheerio for now.
5 stars but I have a suggestion 5/5
By King Julian77
I love this app, it’s a great for a daily dose of interesting information. It’s simple and easy to use. I just wish there was an easier way to look up specific things/topics you’re interested in.
Want Long form Journalism 4/5
By Daniel B Schneider
Not interested in having short fluff articles read to me.
Dear Curio Designers,
Is it remotely possible to develop a category focused on serious long form journalism? Looking thru the current /categories takes too much time and proves frustrating because most offerings don’t fit... perhaps a category called ‘long form journalism?
Dear Curio Designers,
I was caught off-guard by your responsiveness. Of limited budget yet let my NYT subscription lapse... to witness your evolution. Happy 4th of July... Bang!
Yours, in support of a ‘Long Form Journalism’ Option-
Seems interesting but the app refuses to play downloaded tracks 3/5
I seem to have problem playing the tracks that i downloaded when not connected to wifi. they won’t start.
Just gives you more Fake News 1/5
