    The fact they give you a trial and the bill A FULL YEAR upfront shows they make money off people forgetting to cancel the trial rather than substance
  • Balanced learning for the love of learning

    I use a lot of educational material online. In fact about 90% of my online activity is dedicated to learning. I have used many educational apps as well. Curious provides a platform to learn a wide array of topics. It seems more about actually learning in general with the option to see if you like something before dedicating a lot of time to a specific learning endeavor. Also, it provides both learning game exercises and lessons on various topics. This is an exemplary model of online learning that is as practical as it is innovated. A keeper!
  • Religious discrimination!!!

    I respect people who equally treat other people. As I searched through the app, I was surprised that there was so much information on evolution (which I disagree with, but that’s not the point) there was nothing about creationism, most of the lessons I browsed were presented from a perspective that is against Christianity and the teachings of the Bible (that most were proven right long before everything science ever thought), At least there are good things written about Islam, but about Christianity everything is messed up. So sad,
  • Misleading costs

    The app, which has been featured on several sites, seems free. It’s not. There is a free trial period but when you download you actually authorize a subscription. In a couple weeks, you’ll get a prompt to login to your account (I get these all the time with software updates), and you’ll be charged $30. I felt this was shady and got a refund.

    I’m not adding payment unless I want a game for sure. Give the 7 days then stop it. If a person really wants a game after playing then they will pay for it. -1*
  • 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.
  • Love it!

    You get a free week, then if you don’t cancel, you get charged $30 for the year. What I get out of the app, however, is worth far beyond the $30.
  • Horrible business model

    Definitely do not recommend downloading for even a trial. You need to set to apartment plan for an entire year before you can even try it for free for 7 days. Prays on a person's forgetfulness.
  • Not well labeled

    I’m a little annoyed at the limited version. Not because it’s limited but it seems to lie. I did one task that said it would count for one of my 8 cqs but halfway through was told I had earned 11 cqs. Not well communicated. Hard to tell if I like the app but it has potential for sure
  • Brings structure to my learning

    This app helps guide me into areas of interest and study that I wouldn't otherwise dive into. Highly recommend it.
