Brilliantly Produced Service let down by Poor App

This is a BRILLIANT service. Nothing but piles of MUST HAVE articles curated from valued sources and voiced by skilled voiceover artists. What's not to like!!! ...the App.

Using the app is an unpleasant experience which feels like it's a quick port from the iPhone. Huge stretched lines across the screen with info spaced at either end. 'Buttons' hang (I'm on a new iPad Pro) and little or nothing is intuitive, such as deleting or storing what you've already heard.

When the iPad app becomes something other than an afterthought, I will resubscribe and give it five stars (which I'm looking forward to as the service is great!).

Great content but app needs improvement

Some basic podcast app features are missing. Such as automatically cancelling content after having listened to it! It’s painful and time consuming to mop up the library! Also the division of my library in downloads fav and history is quite pointless and requires multiple clicks just to select what to listen. Then one key point. Content duration varies. It might be from 5 min to half hour. With podcasts you know more or less the duration in advance and you plan your content selection accordingly. Here is super tricky. If you are listening one after the other, you never know how long is going to take for the next one unless you look at the phone. If you are selecting what to listen to, there is no way to order content based on duration. Super pain for what is supposed to be for “busy people”! Hope it helps!

The only audio subscription you need

I absolutely love this app. I listen to their articles every day, and I now could not live without it. They curate the best articles from my favorite newspapers and magazines, and they’re always recommending exactly the type of stories that I’d want to hear next without having to waste time searching. I’m a huge podcast lover, but I find myself turning to Curio instead of the others because their tracks have higher quality content without the unnecessary chitchat or advertisements. It helps me go deeper than the news (or just escape it, if I’m feeling news-ed out), and it fits into my day perfectly.
