HOW IT WORKS
We have three different plans for you:
• Free - Listen to 10 free tracks of your choice
• Monthly premium - $7.99/month
• Annual premium - $59.99/year, our most popular and cost-effective plan with a 7-day free trial (Don’t like it? Cancel it before the end of the trial, and you won’t be charged)

Premium features:
• Ad-free listening
• Unlimited access to thousands of hours of audio from The Economist, The Guardian, Financial Times, Bloomberg, The Washington Post, Aeon and more
• Unlimited downloads to listen offline
• Unlimited bookmarks and saves on stories
• Personalised recommendations and curated playlists

You can cancel your annual plan at any time during the first 7 days via the Play Store settings, and we won't charge you. You may also manage your subscription plan and turn off auto-renewal by going to your account settings after purchase.

Please note that your subscription plan automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours before the end of the current period (either the $7.99 at the end of your current month for the monthly plan or $59.99 at the end of your current year for the annual plan).

Any unused portion of free tracks or a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when you purchase a subscription.

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.)

I love the content but the app is clunky and feels like it hasn't been updated in years. The search is very basic and it's difficult to find topics on a theme, rather they are sorted by publication. Overall it is fairly expensive for the functionality of the app. The articles and narrators, however, are very good.
