A joy. Wonderful.

Has always been unique and great, but with each update the app keeps getting better and the content range expands. If you like podcasts, or reading, you’ll like Curio.

Hi, thank you so much for the review, we really appreciate it :)

I wanted to do the subscribe option for a shorter time period, but it automatically subscribed for one year. I feel cheated. Not only did I lose the week of free trial, I have over-subscribed. Even if I like it, there is no way I will continue thereafter unless someone can explain how this can be refunded.

Hey Melanie, thank you for getting in touch. We would never want for you to feel cheated. Please, can you send us an email to so we can look into this for you?
