Doesn’t work. Waste of money

1
Curio has not refreshed or added new content for a month or more. I contacted support 2 weeks ago. I just updated the app and now i have zero stories. You charge a lot of money for nothing. They won’t give me a prorated refund for the month their app didn't work. A refund must come through Apple and it is all or nothing.

4.5 Stars - The Titles Aren’t Read

4
Just signed up and am loving this app except for one thing: the readers never read the titles of the articles(!). There’s an intro to each article, but surprisingly enough no mention of the article’s title. It’s like jumping into bed with someone without first getting their name. The title is indeed in the app itself or on my device, but I use the playlist/auto play function and can’t be bothered to look at my phone or iPad to find the new title every time an article changes, especially when driving or on my bike or walking the dog. Skipping the titles of songs would be fine, but not the title of written works/articles. Please read the titles of the articles and I will give 5 stars! Until then, I will try to get past having this huge chunk of context missing. I’ll try to remember the title of this app when recommending it. ;)

Amazing but too expensive

3
The well of knowledge, wealth of information. Exactly what I’ve been looking for to satisfy my thirst for self-education. But $11/month or $80/year is just far too expensive for me. It is a shame that during the unprecedented times we live in, information come so high-priced. Hence 4 stars, otherwise I wouldn’t hesitate giving 5-star review.

Manual Refresh

2
The app does not refresh reliably on open and does not provide a way in app for the user to force a manual update (like swipe down). It is very frustrating. On content, it’s good. Financial Times and other high quality content providers. Needs more content, sooner. Low stars because app design.

Everything it promised to be.

Great articles, with great narrators from a dizzying array of sources. I saw an ad while scrolling through Instagram and was immediately interested. The app itself does not disappoint.

I subscribed to curio due to failing vision. Your stuff is hard to see and read for vision impaired. Make everything bold so with poor eyesight can see things! I find offerings scant and few current offerings. Don Baack

Going downhill

2
Success would be to publish audio versions of good journalism. This app seems to think its job is surfacing audio versions garbage blogposts or d-rate podcasts. Less of the garbage and more good journalism and writing.

There’s barely any content

2
Waste of money. Very small library. They automatically opt you in for a year subscription following the trial instead of a month which cost me a lot of money for something I didn’t want. It feels incredibly scammy.

Opinion and self help articles

2
Not really sure why my “preferences” include troves of opinion articles or those associated with self help, entertainment and wellness. Any shot of adding pertinent financial times or Wall Street journal articles?

Simply enjoying every moment spent

5
I’m a victim. Just what you wanted to see. A 53 year old here, who’s mother plopped me in front of TV as a babysitter. Mom unknowingly confessed this when speaking to me with my kids upbringing. “Plop them in front of the TV and you are good for hours.” My response? “Mom, no wonder!” Thinking of my addiction to the boob tube. Subsequently reading is not my favorite but when I ever find the time, although always too short, I enjoy it! This app seems to bridge the need for technology while “reading” articles and keeping me current in so many areas. Thank you and well done.
