Amazing App! 5/5
By Mohammed 1988
I like the concept of this app, it opens your brain to many things it defiantly broaden your knowledge.
I would recommend people to download it.
I simply cannot afford another $$29.99 being deducted and had I known it would cost this after 7 says I would not have filled out all questions -
Interests are customizable 4/5
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.
If you’re ever bedridden? Get this app! 5/5
There are so many different ways to inform and delight and puzzle. I even bought the entire app. After using my 8 q everyday, I wanted more!
I want my money back!!! I deleted the app and it took 30 dollars from me !!!
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 4/5

Very angry 1/5
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...
So far so good 5/5
I enjoy the beginner steps through the subjects I’m interested in. I also enjoy the games.
Great app. Thank you!! 5/5
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.
I AM HEATED 1/5
I SPENT 30 MINS FILLING THAT CRAP OUT AND THEN THEY TELL ME ITS 30 DOLLARS A MONTH LOL THATS COMEDY
Great daily learning exercise 5/5
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! 5/5
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! 5/5
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. 5/5
Best app ever! 5/5
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 1/5
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.
This is obviously a consumer information collection survey. They send you through all these questionnaires to, “set up the application “. It’s all very obvious that they are selling your information to companies that are going to market to you.
You reach the end of the questions and just before the application starts they let you in on the fact that it’s going to charge you $30.
I want my information expunged From your records, immediately and I want confirmation of you having done so at your earliest opportunity. Thank you.
Start of my day 5/5
I begin each day with Curious, starting with the puzzles then the articles. I’m really good at the. Up & Down but my favorite Is Unilingo. Ken Ken is too simple and boring for me but I still do it and end with the crossword that usually takes about 45 minutes for me to finish.(I’m not real bright) The articles and videos are very enlightening and informative. After I used the free version for about 3 months I decided to buy the full version. I spend more than what I paid for the full version, on junk stuff that I don’t need. I have yet had a chance to use the learning videos but I know I will in time.
Every day there is usually something interesting to share with my grandchildren that they may not learn in school.
For me, Curious is a good entertainment investment and it gets two thumbs up.
Best things in life are free 5/5
I use the free version of this app, and I love it! Sometimes, I wish I could grab an extra few points to see something else, but it’s OK. There’s more “stuff” coming tomorrow. This is the best free app I have ever used!
By Look here Friend
If you don’t wanna pay for this app don’t even download it. You’ll do all that signing up just for them to charge you at the end.
Love to learn! 5/5
By Joe Friday 77
Great app for learning anything! Even stuff you didn’t know you wanted to learn;)
Tricky - easy to accidentally to subscribe and pay 1/5
Very tricky - seems to be a common problem - easy to accidentally subscribe and pay for a year. The app automatically renews after a year for more than twice the cost of the first year. A nightmare to unsubscribe- you MUST go through Apple. It’s not worth the money and it’s set up so it’s very difficult and time consuming to get out of it. In my opinion, deceptive. Unless you want to pay 29.99 for year one and 79.99 for year two, stay away. Don’t do the feee trial or will will likely end up with a year and beyond.
Always find something worth reading or learning 5/5
It's a great app
Very Good app 5/5
By Victor Ferrando
The app is very good it teaches you a lot. I am glad that the price is lowered. I like the option of questions in the videos. They are very organized. I also like the point system. Definitely a 5/5.
Not free 2/5
What they don't tell you is it’s a free 7-day TRIAL and then they bill you 29.99 afterwards. You spend 5-10 minutes customizing your wheel only to find it’s NOT actually a free app. Suckers.
Seriously my favorite out of all time! 5/5
This is the first review I’ve ever written, and only because I love this app so very much. I work out of my car and use the time between clients to listen to learning modules. I love the puzzles which are usually challenging, especially KENKEN. I am learning all kinds of random facts from the Curios! Best investment ever on an app.
you can learn things on your own time whenever you want. Paying for it all in one place is absolutely stupid, and the app doesn’t look good or function well enough to be worth buying anyway. a complete scam that made me check to make sure my debit card wasn’t hacked after use.
The fact they give you a trial and the bill A FULL YEAR upfront shows they make money off people forgetting to cancel the trial rather than substance
Balanced learning for the love of learning 5/5
I use a lot of educational material online. In fact about 90% of my online activity is dedicated to learning. I have used many educational apps as well. Curious provides a platform to learn a wide array of topics. It seems more about actually learning in general with the option to see if you like something before dedicating a lot of time to a specific learning endeavor. Also, it provides both learning game exercises and lessons on various topics. This is an exemplary model of online learning that is as practical as it is innovated. A keeper!
Religious discrimination!!! 1/5
By David Cheptea
I respect people who equally treat other people. As I searched through the app, I was surprised that there was so much information on evolution (which I disagree with, but that’s not the point) there was nothing about creationism, most of the lessons I browsed were presented from a perspective that is against Christianity and the teachings of the Bible (that most were proven right long before everything science ever thought),
At least there are good things written about Islam, but about Christianity everything is messed up.
Misleading costs 1/5
The app, which has been featured on several sites, seems free. It’s not. There is a free trial period but when you download you actually authorize a subscription. In a couple weeks, you’ll get a prompt to login to your account (I get these all the time with software updates), and you’ll be charged $30. I felt this was shady and got a refund.
I’m not adding payment unless I want a game for sure. Give the 7 days then stop it. If a person really wants a game after playing then they will pay for it. -1*
Accidentally paid for a year... but I’m pretty ok with the mistake 4/5
So far it seems like a worthwhile investment. I’ve only just started to use it regularly after having it for a month and have just been figuring out its uses. The games are somewhat challenging. I enjoy the positive talks and find them inspiring while also showing me I could make my own. After two days I have learned how to sign the alphabet and that is something I have been talking about doing for 6 months. I will be diving deeper into this app while continuing to practice the features I have found already. I do find it expensive, but if you think about how ridiculously priced private college is this is a cheap way to learn skills that can pad your resume and make you stand out amongst other candidates.
Love it! 5/5
You get a free week, then if you don’t cancel, you get charged $30 for the year. What I get out of the app, however, is worth far beyond the $30.
Horrible business model 1/5
By Judge Avis
Definitely do not recommend downloading for even a trial. You need to set to apartment plan for an entire year before you can even try it for free for 7 days. Prays on a person's forgetfulness.
Not well labeled 3/5
I’m a little annoyed at the limited version. Not because it’s limited but it seems to lie. I did one task that said it would count for one of my 8 cqs but halfway through was told I had earned 11 cqs. Not well communicated. Hard to tell if I like the app but it has potential for sure
Brings structure to my learning 5/5
By These reviews gave me cancer
This app helps guide me into areas of interest and study that I wouldn't otherwise dive into. Highly recommend it.
Love this 4/5
There is a way to use a limited version for free. I find the subjects, which I choose, presented in such an interesting and informative way. This is my go to morning app
Love this app! 5/5
I really like this app! It limits how many items you can do each day without have my to pay but 8 stars is usually enough to do a few good things. I like a lot of the puzzles and the fact that I come across learning things I normally wouldn’t have looked for myself.
This app is great 5/5
By The AM Rider
I have the free version of this app and I think it is wonderful. The CQ Wheel keeps me learning in areas that I would otherwise ignore. The articles are short, sweet, very interesting, and usually lead me into further dabbling on that topic, which end up being wonderful little adventures. This app is a part of my daily life
Can’t go unlimited 2/5
I already paid for 1 year subscription but still get only 8cq limit/day.
I Love Curious! 5/5
By Senses jr
I have been using Curious for over a month and I am completely entertained and addicted! Thank you to my Curious creators, you did good! C
Price seems worth it. 4/5
Was a bit turned off by the price at first but I am enjoying my time with app. I have already learned a lot of new things. I enjoy the puzzles(wish there were more) and instructional videos.
Just what I needed! 5/5
A great way to mine internet gold without all the distractions.
Credit card charged before trial period ended 1/5
My credit card was charged before my one week free trial ended. I had until 1/9/18 to cancel so that I would not be charged. At 11:35 pm on 1/8/18 I cancelled my subscription only to find that my credit card had been charged at 10:55 pm that same evening. Not sure how to go about canceling and getting my money back.
Haven’t used the app 3/5
Didn’t know I would have to agree to pay for the app for a year just to try it for free. Get a 7 day trial and then you will be billed automatically which preys on people’s forgetfulness.
Should be a different category for apps with a pay plan like this. Gave it two instead of one star because I couldn’t actually rate the app itself but this misleading tactic deserves a low rating in itself.
Edit moved it to 3 because I was able to try the app in a very limited fashion a couple puzzles and was kind of enjoyable but gave a good idea of what the app was.
Stupid app 1/5

Wouldn’t let me review it
