Worth every penny
It’s difficult to find an app that combines as much evidence-based information about chronic pain as this. Yes you can comb through research papers for free but it’s nice to have things summarized in an easy-to-use app.
It has decreased my chronic pain levels, migraines, and health anxiety. I’m not sure if it will ever totally eliminate them but I can accept that. Sometimes I use the meditation exercises to help fall asleep if I am feeling stressed about something important the following day.
I think if you are reading this, you have probably tried many different things for battling your illness. I was very skeptical about this but gave it a shot anyway and I’m glad I did.
Thanks for making this app guys, it really has helped with my quality-of-life.
Misleading, and potential scam.
Although I appreciate the concept of this app, unfortunately they have somehow skirted the label of “includes in app purchases”. However, you HAVE to subscribe to curable if you plan to use it as the app description intends. Although it would be fine if there was a price upfront for the app or explaining the more about the subscription component, or even had the proper labeling in the App Store, that would be different. But instead they are lying. Now I got an email that said “50% off, save $60”. No clue if that’s a month, for the whole year? The entire thing Is extremely misleading, and comes across as a major red flag for scamming. That is not a small amount of money to pay for a subscription, and people deserve to know that upfront.
It also makes me question the validity and integrity of the educational information included. You also can’t see exactly what you are purchasing, there is no free trial. So it’s not like other apps which cost subscription where you can access the features for a limited time to get a feel if it’s right. This again, comes across as a scam.
I definitely understand people need to get paid, and there is nothing wrong with charging for your services. But just be upfront and honest? People would likely buy/subscribe your product if you did that. I likely would have. Don’t manipulate your potential customers, especially those who are so desperate for help.
TLDR; This DOES have in app purchases despite the apps description in the store, I the form of subscription to use. Now you can make an educated guess to see if it’s right for you, and worth it.
Developer Response ,
Hello Emmalilly, The app is listed the same way all apps that provide additional services do in the app store, "Free
- Offers In-App Purchases." Apple shows the free part in bold in their interface which might make it easier to miss the in-app purchases part.
The price you mention is for a full years access to the Curable app, recovery program, the Curable community, in-app support and monthly Curable online events. That works out to 4.99 a month USD.
THIS IS A SCAM!!!
Seriously! This is a scam! They offer very little that can not be found with a bit of research (legitimately). They are essentially curating free information and podcasts into one place and charging $20/mo for user access. Further more, it has been impossible to cancel the subscription and the organization does no respond to emails about these concerns. Every month they bill me $20 for a service I find entirely useless and there is no way of me stopping those payments. DO NOT USE THIS APP! THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF AND THERE’S NO WAY TO CANCEL THE MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION FEE!!!
Developer Response ,
Hello acerbius, sorry for your experience. It is very easy to cancel your subscription. Go to Settings > My Subscription and tap Cancel Subscription at the bottom. Please tap Tech Support in the app to reach out if you have problems, they will gladly refund you for the months you didn't use it. I see you are in Canada, at first I was confused by the price you mention, currently the only option is the yearly at $4.99/m USD
We employ doctors and scientists to help us create new content each month. Yes, research is public and we encourage everyone to explore it. Also many people who have recovered using Curable have gone on to share a lot of the information they learned and share their own take on what worked for them in blogs. Though the Curable Classic recovery program and Breakthrough Bootcamps are completely unique and have been in development since 2016.
If you can take what you've learned and apply it on your own, that's great! This is the ultimiate goal of Curable, to introduce people to this method and help them find breakthroughs in challenging areas so that they can eventually make use of it on their own, without a guide. Tens of thousands have found recovery this way. Best wishes on your own recovery.
