Loving the content. But have plenty of issues with the playback on Sony Experia Z5 Compact. 1. Especially before the end of a longer (15min+) piece it skips through to the next one before finishing the prior. When looking at the UI it displays the item I was listening to previously. 2. Skipping to the next doesnt autoplay when I was already listing to something which feels counterintuitive. 3. I had occasions where the app was closed but was still playing, not quite sure how to reproduce at the moment. Happy to up the rating when its less buggy :)
Already outstanding Still in beta, but already outstanding. Great narration, and several quality content partners with diverse and thoughtful long-form print journalism to explore. I look forward to what the future may hold for Curio.io. Finally an app that may not only replace, but also out-perform the work done by the now defunct Umano.
FIVE Stars-for the content. As for the app itself, lots of work to be done.. Most of these issues have been mentioned by previous users, but I'll list 3 of the 'show stoppers' quickly : 1. Sound playback does not use native API, therefore playback cannot be controlled from headset or lockscreen. 2. Longer content gets cut off around the 15 minute mark. 3. No synchronization of 'favourites' between devices/web. Keep up the great work.
Great idea, Great app! Not only does it include content from my favourite publications, it's also introduced me to new ones. Early on I disliked some of the narrators but now most every article is voiced in a natural, friendly way by a range of genders and accents - spot on guys, I love this!
I really like this app and the content on it. It is certainly underrated and therefore my complaints are minimal since I understand there is a budget problem. Complaints, 1. I'd like tp be able to easily acceess audio artivles that are playing, I'd like it to show in my profile or something of the sort. 2. I'd like to be able to download content.
Beta, fine, OK. But this is the kind of infuriating, too smart by half app that shows how wrong design has gone in the age of apps. Mysterious star, gray or black to download? And what does "playlists" mean?! Anyway why not just RSS? Curio's great production values show they want to carve out their own niche, and a spare, uncluttered app is a part. But this unintelligible app is a failure. Ugh.
