Fun and Educational  CRBGolf  5 star

Probably the best fifteen minutes you can spend every day learning new and interesting things.


Enjoy the free version  Godspropertee  4 star

I enjoy the free version. It is overly expensive for the unlimited version. I will not pay for what is available online for free. I like that I get eight curious points per day to use. I do not have the time to do much more. This keeps me from spending too much time.


Fantastic app  cjhall57  5 star

This app is great. Yes there is a free trial to see if you are interested in paying for it. It is up front about cost. I love this app. Highly recommend!

Dim Fandis

Not free  Dim Fandis  1 star

Freezes on payment screen after 30 minutes of sharing your talents and interests. No options regardless. 🙁


Hummmm  345efing678  4 star

Curious has everything you didn't know you were curious about but are. Could find most with a good web search but won't.


Love it!!  Shadowed_Hawk979  5 star

Really love the extras, haven't bought it yet, but plan to indefinitely. Very good tool for piano learning. :)


Try it!  dropnc  5 star

What do you have to lose? Great for all ages.


App Charges twice  Upoo  1 star

I purchased the app and it asked me to purchase it again to use it.


This App is great, it costs for a reason  Destin561  5 star

This is a great app, learn whatever you want. This app costs money because it's a service. Giving full fledge courses on whatever you want. If you can't pay thats understandable, but don't downgrade it because the people who created this service needs money to help run it and pay employees and teachers.

Almost Perfect...  Kathie B.  4 star

I think this app is fantastic. I love almost everything about it.'s expensive to really get what you want out of it, and I am not paying that kind of money for an app on my phone. If it ever drops down to $20/yr I will DEFINITELY sign up!


Something to stimulate the mind  Sunchaser2  5 star

Great app

BD Shane

Horrible, waste of time.  BD Shane  1 star

Not a free app, not in game purchase. They make you buy a subscription, waste of time.


Great app  F.piad  4 star

I just want to say this is a great app. I use it everyday.


Fun & Informative  sconnell2  5 star

I started the free trial some time ago and didn't use it much at first, so almost cancelled. Recently I got in the habit of making a few minutes each day to use it and have really enjoyed the quality and variety of content. It stimulates my thoughts and inspires creativity that can apply to my work or just conversations with friends and colleagues. I'm so glad I've carved some time out of my schedule for Curiosity!


Way too expensive  PttyBtty  1 star

There's no mention that this app costs money. Spent 30 minutes setting it up only to be asked for my credit card information. Want to learn? Go use a search engine to find all the information you want for FREE. YOU DON'T NEED TO THIS APP!


Not "free" - wasted my time  Sm90idg  1 star

Wasted my time setting up my profile, only to realize "free" is very misleading. Subscription-based, but not necessarily clear until you've spent time on set-up. Ugh.

Trippy chick

It's a great way to learn something new  Trippy chick  5 star

Often I only have a few free minutes to learn something new. This app provides me with that "new". Whether it's science, arts, or any of the other options, I can choose from whatever's available to me that day, or I can go into the "browse" section & choose something from there. It's a great app, well designed, full of good information. However, only the 1st month is free, which it does tell you, after you download the app. I bought a subscription & have renewed it twice because learning something new, daily, is important to me (& yes, it is pricey). I highly recommend, if learning something new is your thing too.


Positive outweighs the negative  kalaar27  4 star

My positive feedback: I use this app daily for its puzzles and "curiosity cabinet," which includes clips of audio, video and/or writing from other sources. They are always interesting and make me look at myself and the world differently. I especially love the growth mindset tips that come out on Sundays. My negative feedback: I am not impressed with the quality of information for the focus I signed up for (writing). For the amount the app asks for, I would expect a more professional experience that would assure me that the skills being taught are valuable. I don't know if all the focuses are the same, which is why the 30 day free trial is definitely worth it. Ultimately, I decided to keep with the app after the 30 days. I would miss what I get out of the app every day. In saying that, I hardly use the focus information on writing.

Excellent  Rezi O  5 star

One of the best apps for learning things


Pricey? No Worth it!  KharmaIsisFW  5 star

I did the trial and immediately cancelled thinking it was a bit pricey. However in the weeks that I've been in my free trial I've used it every day and learned SO much! Completely worth every cent. Have subscribed and am super happy.
