Who knew exercising your brain could be this much fun? “Curious has mastered making learning addictive.” -- PandoDaily “A Netflix For Learning” -- Forbes “Curious stands out from sites like Khan Academy, Coursera, Udacity, Udemy, and by focusing on learning 'for learning’s sake.'” -- VentureBeat “Curious Helps Hobbyists Share Their Skills” -- Mashable Curious helps people reclaim between 5 to 30 minutes a day to learn something new! Ready to learn?

  • Surprising myself

    By BrinohnameNOTtaken
    Rekindling my memory with daily crosswords and learning so much is so easy. I love Curious!

    Love this app and it is worth paying for. The variety of content brings something new everyday. Worth it.
  • This should come standard with every smartphone

    By Bromotrees
    Where has this been all my life?! Aside from providing games and tasks to improve your mind's functional abilities, this app has awesome articles, tutorials, and demonstrations (all of which there WILL be a quiz on) that challenge you with new ideas that you never even knew existed. Every student, senior, simpleton, scholar, sage, and savant should make this a daily habit. Just... WOW!
  • Great learning system and fun!

    By Ceshew
    I have been using this app every day for a little over a week and it has been a joy to use and play with! Highly recommended!
  • Disappointed!!!

    By leiomi
    I was excited to learn things because it said free!!! You go through the interview & all the things you want to learn. Then it says to start & BAM $69 charge 😐 very misleading!!!!!

    By Breenyburg
    Everything on this app costs money!!!!
  • Love it!

    By Okie Barb
    I admit it: I'm a bit of a nerd. This app is like going back to school, but I get to study a little of everything! I can take whole "classes", or just go through the lessons that are of special interest. Much cheaper than paying to audit courses at a uni. Thanks, NPR!!
  • Hooked

    By AmyDRobinson
    I subscribed expecting to cancel quickly, but I am hooked!
  • Impossible

    By CardHog
    Many of the headlines sound entertaining but are inaccessible without spending $10/month or $70/year. One gets 8 free points a day - which don't roll over - but the interesting articles cost 7 points to read then 2 points to read the second page or 3 points to watch the attached video. It's just a scam. Your first nugget of information is free but when you want more it's gonna run ya.
