Accidentally paid for a year... but I’m pretty ok with the mistake

So far it seems like a worthwhile investment. I’ve only just started to use it regularly after having it for a month and have just been figuring out its uses. The games are somewhat challenging. I enjoy the positive talks and find them inspiring while also showing me I could make my own. After two days I have learned how to sign the alphabet and that is something I have been talking about doing for 6 months. I will be diving deeper into this app while continuing to practice the features I have found already. I do find it expensive, but if you think about how ridiculously priced private college is this is a cheap way to learn skills that can pad your resume and make you stand out amongst other candidates.

Fun but mostly inaccurate.

This app is fun. The cool little articles are interesting. The problem is very few of them are based on fact. They just go for sensationalism. It’s like going to the national inquirer for news. Most of their math problems have errors. The facts of their stories are certainly not checked. If there’s an internet meme they’ll publish it as fact. I saw one last week that talks about how wonderful woman is the oldest superhero comic besides Superman and Batman. Um, there are dozens superheroes older than that we still have around. Try captain America, the green lantern, all the avengers, aqua man, green arrow, all the fantastic 4 (though they weren’t a team yet, the list goes on too long for here. I see scientific “discoveries” that are decades old and disproven pretty much that long ago. They need to hire an actual editor for their stories before they go publishing random stuff. At least if they are claiming it’s non-fiction. I’m sorry if you are the “editor” of these things because they are full of misspellings, repeated paragraphs, missing parts of text, and general wrong information. The math is the worst. I’d say do t let your kids use this for learning math. Please. We need an informed generation to help out this ailing planet.

Don’t sign up for a not-free 7 day trial

I wanted to try it to see if I liked it so I signed up for the “free 7 day trial” and was charged $70 immediately. What the hell kind of free trial is THAT?! Applied for a refund through Apple so I’ll see how THIS goes.
Why are there so many reviews like this? It’s a cool app and I’ve used it up to the 8credits every day for a long time. Thought I’d check out what the full subscription offered me. Now I’m pretty upset. I don’t have that $70 I can spare until next week when the app would renew. Terribly misleading to say the least.

*update* I WAS charged and I contacted Apple. They immediately (it showed as a refund the next business day) refunded me the full amount. Whatever issue Curious has with Apple on this matter really should be rectified because it’s not just me that it happened to and now this issue overshadows any review for the actual app content and that’s a shame.
So besides THAT crappy glitch I enjoyed Curious. Sure, some people could find all the individual offerings of this app in other places perhaps but, will they? It IS a cool app with interesting diverse content based on your interests. Like a compiled news app, it’s nice to have what I didn’t know I was looking for yet presented to me in this format.
