Curiosity is a very nice app to kill some "dead" time (i.e. commuting). You can easily finish the daily content and if some story catches your eye, read a bit more. Great topics to talk about with friends. But I think you have to take these articles with a grain of salt, as they tend to blow them up a little or present not quite new infos as new discoveries. Otherwise great, check it out! :)
Love everything about it Now with night mode. Please, please, please do Not Change anything. It is absolutely perfect the way it is. Don't, do Not, ever include comments. I have to commend the author of each article, brilliant writing and enjoyable, summarised perfectly into bite sized 5 minute curiosities. I'm not sure why endless scrolling is preferred by some. Please go back to previous version. It's hardly confusing, if that's the argument towards the new scrolling platform. Why not add the calendar feature to the old 5 article per page. That would be the best of both worlds.
This is one of the best app on the play store I've come across. The content is great, the interface is neat and the overall quality of the articles is good too. Only thing that hampers the app is the lack of a lite mode. There are many users who want faster loading times and lesser data consumption. Please do something on that front. Except for that, I cannot really see any shortcomings in this app. Love it.
I loved this app, and checked it everyday, but then they changed the UI and I don't like it as much, it feels less intuitive. For articles, the "flipping" felt much better than the "scrolling". Since the update, I'm less inclined to check it everyday. The functions I miss are being able to flip between daily digests with one swipe, now I have to scroll through 5 articles I've already read to reach past days. I also miss the graph at the end of each day that shows you how popular each article was comparatively. I think they should change it back, but if they don't: at least reimplement the daily popularity graph, and add a function on the calendar that lets you see which days you've already looked at. I would've given the last version 5 stars, but this one, only 3.
It is damn good. Trust me. This is my first review ever. I've been using it for over 6 months. I loved everything about it until the last update. I actually liked all the up-down, right-left scrolling. Sometimes I couldn't use the app for many consecutive days due to busy schedule. But even though using the four direction scrolling option it was easy to read all unread stories. Anyways, I hope that most of the other users share same opinion as mine and you revert back to old style. All the best and keep up the good work.
I have loved this app for years, and then you changed it, making it much less convenient and fun. Seriously, you need to hire someone who understands emotional design (or did that person just quite?). Before the change, I could easily flip through the few articles for the day. After I watched those, I might flip through a few other days. And the stats - oh, those were great - sometimes, I would finish looking at the day's content, and the stats would make me take note of something I had overlooked. Now, you have made it feel like an un-engaging scrollfest, and removed all of the conveniences. Yuck. Instead of flicking left, right, up, and down, you now make me scroll and scroll and scroll. Seeing yesterday's content is now 3 times harder than before. My thumb hurts just thinking about it. Yuck.
