As others have said, the content is good, but the app is terrible. Often I will be waiting so long for the app to open that a full song will go by on my itunes. If not that, during scrolling the newest selections, it will randomly make you start from the beginning of the selection list. And yes, I have updated the app and it hasn't improved. Beyond frustrating.

The software is awful. Not intuitive, dead links. The content is great but the functionality of the application is not there. It's pretty but it doesn't work. The developer's need to get on this or they're not going to see much income in the near future. Users don't want it to be this difficult to use the application. With Spotify and other streaming services to compete with, I see this tanking fast. Literally only got it to hear Gillian Anderson.

The Curio content and readers are first-rate, but the app! The app is a horror show. It's gone from bad (no back-button navigation, won't let you exit from the notification bar, won't unload from memory) to worse (huge headline images, can't scroll without accidentally activating a story, horrible screen real-estate use in which text is truncated and inaccessible.)
