Great App !

I’m a documentary junkie ! This definitely scratches my itch for knowledge! A great value too ! This is like having PBS’s Nova, the Science Channel, Nat Geo and the Discovery channels rolled in to one, just a click away ! They say variety is the spice of life, this app is a full on spice cabinet!
One feature I especially enjoy is how mainstream media usually just touches on an event, where this app goes in depth on the story. An example is the recent discovery of a black hole. A two minute cover on mainstream media After watching a story on CuriosityStream l now understand it better. The bonus is seeing the people behind its discovery. It’s like they are having a conversation with me in my living room ! Education with no test questions, just for pure educational knowledge!
Kudos to the developers and those associated with the development of this amazing app! A sincere thank you to the men and women behind the development and production of this app !

Offline download needs work

It’s been more than 7 months subscribed to CuriosityStream, I really enjoyed watching all the documentaries. I have been waiting for offline download so that I can enjoy my long drive commute everyday, but it has some buffering problem. I have to reopen the app to keep running the offline downloaded videos.

My request to the developer is to fix the offline videos problem.

Content and idea is fantastic. Horrid execution

The thought is there. But in practice the app is a complete failure. The interface is glitchy and buggy. The fact that i cant toggle make the app stop streaming after one episode or continue playing is rather annoying. But by FAR the worst thing about this. Is the fact that for the life of me I cant figure out why the closed captioning feature cant be disabled. I am a visual person and when i see some dumb(and typically incorrect) subtitle on the bottom of my screen it drives me insane. Have tried to find a resolution for this to no avail. Have already canceled my subscription and will not come back until they fix that.
